I did it.....Phew

I officially have my masters degree. I graduated today with Quinn looking on from the audience. It's funny this is one of the moments I've been dreaming of since I found out I was pregnant. My 6 month old son sitting with my husband and my family out in the audience while I get my diploma. I know he's not going to remember it but it was a very sweet day for me.

My Wesleyan Diploma.

The newest way we entertain Quinn. This is two of the other Psych students I took classes with.

My thugged out son. Mommy was a bad girl and left Quinn's hat at home so grandpa Dan let us borrow a handkerchief.

I actually left the ceremony after I walked and watched the rest from the sidelines so I could feed Quinn. It was an interesting experience to watch it from the outside. A lot more relaxed.

My husband is very proud of me, but don't be fooled, my dad brought me those flowers :o).

This is what we look like in the morning sometimes. Quinn wide awake and Dan 3/4 of the way asleep.

Psst. Daddy, Daddy. Wake up. I want to play.

I'm going to get him up if it's the last thing I do.

Mommy I don't know whats wrong. He's just laying there.

Oh well, I can have fun all by myself.

That last chain of remarks on the blog is absolutely bias. Why don't you show a normal day with me getting up for work while you both are sound asleep.
