I was sitting here rocking my baby girl, and thinking about the past 7 years. It has been a whirlwind of change, excitement, happiness, sadness, and new beginnings. It seems like a lifetime ago, but just 7 and a half years ago I was a teenage girl who had just started dating this guy. Now 7 years later we have been through so very much. We have moved 4 times including across the country. We have met so many friends, and said goodbye to some. We have mourned loss and rejoiced with new births, like our sweet little princess.
Never would I have guessed that 7 years ago this is where I would be. I never would have guessed I would have gone through so much in such a short period of time. As I sit thinking about the new year and years to come, I am overwhelmed. Where will the next years take us. What will they hold. The surprises and change to come. Where will we be in 7 more years, I'm not sure but I'm excited to find out what God has in store for us..
Happy New Year!

I can't believe it was 1 year ago that my life changed forever.
This little smile brings me more joy than I ever thought possible!

Well my world has been turned upside down since the arrival of our little princess. She is amazing.
Whenever someone meets her they always say "she is such a happy baby". She has a full body smile lol. She is extremely active and already walking. She says mama, dada, and Yay! She loves to go outside . She loves dogs and gets so excited when she sees them. She loves people and starts babbling to strangers and flashing her grin.
She is definitely a handful. She is a nearly perfect baby except for sleep. She hates sleep. I think she thinks she is going to miss something fun. She is getting better but it has been a long exhausting road. When I was pregnant I read every book, blog, and article on babies sleeping. Maybe I some how knew this would be an issue. But all those authors never met my little one lol.
But we are working through it and I have tried to enjoy the late night snuggles, as they will be gone before I know it. It has been a harder road then I thought but my little girl is truly a joy. I love her more than I ever knew was possible.
I will leave you with a video of my little princess walking =)

Happy Mothers Day to all the moms out there. I know I have not been writing much lately. But I have been preoccupied with a special little princess. She is 7 almost 8 months already. She has grown so quickly. She is such a happy little girl and always on the move.
It's funny motherhood is not exactly how I pictured it. Nobody can really describe how hard it really can be. The lack of sleep, wondering if your doing it "the right way", and the 24/7 job that it is. But at the same time nobody can describe the joy that motherhood brings either. When you see your little one light up when you enter the room, the warmth and happiness you feel is like no other. When you see your child learn how to do something new and the pride on their face, it makes you glow with pride as well. It amazes me how something that can be so frustrating at times, can bring so much joy the next moment. So I have been focusing on all those moments. The moments that you want to take a mental picture of so you can remember when she is 16 and always out with her friends.
I have always wanted to be a mother. This past year my little girl made that a reality. The very first moment they laid her in my arms I was forever changed. It has been more difficult and more wonderful than I could have ever imagined. But then again many things we work hard for have the best rewards.
So happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there that have the hardest and most rewarding job in the world.
