Here is a very bitter sweet update for those who may still be checking this blog. Mostly sweet!
Months ago I stopped blogging to grow a baby. I was sick at the beginning and then at 16 weeks along I started having contractions. I was on a modified bed rest hoping to not dilate till many weeks later! Lucky for me I didn't. It was a very long few months, but also very humbling. I had many who brought me dinner and helped me with various things including spray painting :). That was my focus for those months was the baby growing inside of me waiting for December to come!
Well December came and so did my little bundle of joy...
He has brought the sweetest little spirit in our home! He is the best surprise ever! He also brought back to my mind whats important in life. I LOVED having months of not worring about more then was nessecary. I didn't miss this blog. I miss the comments but not the time spent on it or the daily updates. I didn't miss the blog parties, nor did I miss putting my kids off to get it all done. I realized blogging is not for me. I am not good with time managament with this blog. I can't find a time where I wouldn't have to ignore my kids or husband to get it done. I admire those who are successful at it. My life however, blogging just doesn't fit into it anymomre. My husband has a demanding church responsiblilty and a demanding new job. We get limited amount of time together. I had to let something go. It has to be this blog.
I will miss it. I will miss all my blog friends. But I want more then anything to be a mom and just a mom. That is who I am and where I shine. It full fills me! This baby has made me realize my kids will be grown and gone way to fast. I need to make memories while I can :)! Thank you to all those who have prayed for me and my family with my husbands job hunt and the safety of my little baby. I felt them and many times the prayers carried me through. Thank you! May you all be blessed in this new year!!
You know the day where you could put ALL the thoughts inside your head to rest and get started on them?!?!?
For months now I have been planning on painting a crib...white....with pink stenciling...really light pink...
I had a name! A cute girl name picked out!
I know we are missing a little girl in the family! I thought for sure we would add her......
but...then I heard the tech say...IT'S A BOY!
All I could do was lay there in COMPLETE shock! I didn't even know what to think!
The crib...I won't be painting...cause I don't think he would appreciate pink on his crib...
A name...nope have NO clue where to even begin with figuring one out!
All I could do was stare at this child....for almost 22 weeks I thought it was a girl in there....
I am wrong. And it is okay!
He is healthy, well, and ready to be in the family!
Did I mention...I gave away ALL my boy stuff...yes....I really did!
I thought for sure we were having a girl and then we were done....:)
Well...it is a boy...we will get cute little blue and green things...a new house...and....well...not the last baby like we thought...but we will get this bundle of joy to love....and Richard will get his prayers answered :)
The first words Richard said to me..."I told ya mom!"
He has said from day one he was praying for a boy! Looks like his faith is stronger then mine :)!
