SAD Week

This is just a downer post. I hate to do it, but its all that is filling my mind. I just can hardly stand the stories I have heard this week. 2 INCREDIBLY sad stories about little ones. I'm just so overwhelmed by them. Both taken from their parents just way to soon. I don't know how the parents can even go on. Dave says I'm obsessing over the one story.
The one story involves an 18month old. He had a brain bleed after a fall. I went to school with his parents and they are both nice people. It just so happens the night he was born I was at the hospital in the next room getting a shot during my pregnancy. I was actually there when that sweet baby was brought into this world. Its just so unfair. I just cant stop crying about it.
I thank God for my sweet boy. I hold him a little tighter tonight. I pray just a little longer tonight. I thank God a little more tonight.

I almost love Fridays more than Saturdays. On Fridays you look forward to doing nothing on Saturdays.  I just love weekends. 5 1/2 more weeks of work. This week flew by. Thank goodness!!!
We got Hudson's first year pictures done last week and the photographer has them up on her blog! Can't wait to see the rest. I can't believe my litte boy is 1!!!
I love all the pressure people give us to have another. Please people... LET ME ENJOY THIS ONE!! I mean first it was "When in the world are you going to have a baby. You know you really arent a family until there are at least 3 of you" Well thats ridiculous. Now I have the baby that I was supposed to have and people want me to have another. Now don't get me wrong. I LOVE being a mom, and would love 3, but thats just not in the plans right now.
I never thought I was going to be a mom at all. I never had that desire that most women have. All my life I just wanted to be a wife. I couldnt wait to be married. Finally after being married for a long while, my husband and I just felt it was right.  I actually got the urge. Now its the best thing I have ever done. And I cant imagine not having him.
Well, here is to a fantastic weekend!!!

Back to the Grind

Sad, Sad Day. Back to work after a completely wonderful Spring Break.  My job is not bad. Its actually fantastic once I get there, its just leaving home that stinks.
My SB started with a great Easter. This was not Hudson's first, but he was only like 2 weeks old for last years. He was able to participate much more this year. He hunted eggs and took many wagon rides. The adults participated in blowing bubbles all day. Funny how you forget how much fun kid activities are. Seriously, go outside right now and just blow some bubbles. Loads of fun!!  Okay maybe not loads, but a lot of fun. Mainly, I had a great week of just spending time with my son.  We went and ate lunch out, shopped, and took naps. Oh, how I LOVE naps.  They are so precious now!!!
I also started reading a book by Vicki Courtney called Your Boy: How to raise a Godly man in an unGodly world. I actually cried throughout the entire introduction. This should have been my first sign to put the stinking book down, but no I started in on the first chapter. This did not help. It really is a good book. Just emotional for moms of boys, I guess.
Emotions run high for me now after having Hudson. I dont like crying. I dont like to do it and I dont like when other people do it in front of me. It makes me very uncomfortable. I dont want to be mean. I know people need to and I know I need to. Im just not good with it. Please, feel free to cry in front of me, but know I may not know how to react correctly. I think maybe because I feel when people cry they need a hug. And Lord knows I dont like hugging. So I then get completely uncomfortable and thinking, "Oh, they need a hug. Should I give them one? Is that the correct thing to do? But I dont want to hug them, because I dont feel comfortable hugging." These thoughts actually run through my mind.  I actually could make this whole topic a post at a later date.
Okay. Here is my post for today. Still hoping I keep this up!!

New Blog

So I'm super new at this, but everyone is doing something, and I'm doing nothing! I mean in the technical world. I dont myspace, facebook, twitter, or blog...Until NOW. I doubt I will ever post pics, because my husband is a little against all that.  But here I am.

About me:
 I am a mom to the most precious One Year Old there is!  He is more than I could have ever imagined. It use to drive me crazy when people would talk about their kids non-stop. I understand the fuss now. I could talk about him all day! 
I am the wife to a wonderful man. We have been married for 6 years this May. Where has the time gone? Without sounding mushy...He is everything I prayed for, right down to being taller than me!! He is a wonderful man of God and I am proud to be his wife.
I am a Christian.  I have known the Lord personally for 10 years this September. What a lost person I was!!! Completely ignorant to the fact that I could have a personal relationship with God. Thanks goes to my dad for praying for me and pulling me to the church that God wanted us.
I am an Occupational Therapist Assistant. I work in the school system with special education and special needs students. Its an incredible job. And if I couldnt stay home with my little guy, this is the job I want to be doing. Its a completely different day everytime I show up. I work with some incredible students that I truly love.

So, thats my first post. I really hope to keep up on this. I know myself though....I may not!
