6 months ago…

Our sweet little boy was born! I cannot believe it has been 6 months already…it feels like yesterday that I woke up to get ready for church and yelled to Matt: “Ummmm I think my water just broke!” And Matt’s response was: “You think?!” :-) I remember everything about that day…it was also the day of Kayleigh’s 2nd bridal shower- so the 2nd thing I said to Matt was: “Wait- this can’t happen today- I have Kayleigh’s shower!” To which he replied: “Well I don’t think he’s going to wait- sorry babe!” :)

That was the start of the craziest, scariest,  and one of the most wonderful days of my life! Sometimes Matt and I still can’t believe God has blessed us with a child. I never knew it was possible to love a little baby as much as we love ours. He has brought us so much joy- a joy that I honestly can’t describe with words. Aiden has shown me what it is to have someone truly 100% depend on you and I can’t imagine life without him! I love my little family and I love watching Matt with Aiden- He is the greatest dad! It’s so fun to watch them hangout together :) And it’s so fun watching Aiden develop and do funny, different things almost every day!

Having Aiden has also given me such a different & fresh perspective on God’s love for us…being a parent now…and thinking about what God did for me….giving his one and only son for me. I can’t imagine His pain…watching his Son go through what He went through on the cross. It reminds me how much He must love us & I am so very grateful for that life changing love.

Who knew my little tiny baby (who isn’t quite so tiny anymore!)could teach me so much…Aiden has truly changed our lives! I’m so thankful for him and for that day 6 months ago… (even though it was stinkin’ scary at times) I wouldn’t change a thing!

Life!

It’s such a crazy time of year so I’ve had no time to post! Since I have a minute I want to post some updated pics! We have so much going on right now- just like everyone does! Christmas is only 10 days away…even sooner than that, our best friends- Barry & Kayleigh- are getting married! Love that we’re a part of their special day!

Before you know it 2010 will be over… It has been such a great year full of so many blessings! I couldn’t even begin to describe how much God has blessed us this year…of course with our baby boy but in so many other ways, too. I’m so thankful for my sweet husband and little family.

Anyway-

Our little guy is doing so great- such a chill baby! :) AND he sleeps 8 and 1/2 hours at night- that’s all I can ask for!

Here are a few pictures :)

8 years ago…

8 years ago today I started dating Matt…little did I know then, that would be the day I started dating the love of my life, my very best friend, and my husband. I am so very blessed to call Matt all of those things today- he is amazing and I’m so grateful that God gave me the greatest husband on earth! I love him more and more each day and admire him so much. He’s such a great father to our son and truly loves his family more than anything.

Matt- thank you for finally asking me on that date 8 years ago ;-)

Thank you for being such an incredible example of Christ’s love…I can’t wait for our son to follow in your footsteps. I’m so grateful that Aiden has you to look up to. Thank you for staying true to who you are no matter what. Thank you for how hard you work for us.

Thank you for loving me when I didn’t always love myself, believing me when I didn’t believe in myself, and showing me I can do anything! You have pushed me to be better and helped me accomplish goals that are so important to me. You will never ever let me give up on anything!

Thank you for making me laugh all the time- even when I’m trying to be grumpy and don’t want to crack a smile ;-) you find a way to put one on my face!

Thank you for never letting me walk through anything alone and always being right by my side!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you for being you- I love you more than anything!


Aiden is here! :)

Okay so YES- it’s been a while…but I think I have a good excuse :)

Aiden <3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I can’t believe he’s finally here- and almost a month old at that! Time has flown by crazy fast! Matt and I are so blessed with our sweet baby boy- he was only 5lbs 13 ounces when he was born but he’s quickly making up for that! :) Life has definitely been crazy but thankfully we’re getting some sleep…not my 8 hours that I’m used to but I can’t complain ;-)

It’s still crazy to Matt and I that we are parents! Who am I kidding…I’m still kind of a kid :) We love it though- definitely can be overwhelming at times with a newborn but wouldn’t trade it for anything! I’m so thankful for my sweet family…Matt is the greatest husband- I don’t know what I would do without him- he’s so helpful and just flat out amazing!

Princess is adjusting well, too :) She’s definitely not used to not being the baby but she’s learning to love Aiden ;-)

I’m so grateful that God has blessed me with my wonderful little family!

I have lots of pictures to share but for now here are a few more pics. I’ll post more later  for sure….and next time I won’t wait so long to blog!

 


Wednesday Ramblings…

I can’t believe it but as of the end of last week….I am 32 weeks along! That means only 8 more weeks to go……I’m so looking forward to meeting our son and being done pregnant but I’m NOT looking forward to pushing this kid out! ;-) ….but then again, who is looking forward to that?

It was exciting because yesterday we got some big stuff for the baby. A stroller, swing, and play yard! Some of my family got it for me…and we’re SO appreciative because- let’s be honest– baby stuff is stinking expensive!! Who knew such little people could cost so much and require so much stuff. We’ve gotten most of our big items with the exception of a couple things but still need a ton of stuff…did I mention that I had no idea babies require so much stuff?! ;-) I guess they make up for it in cuteness! I’m very thankful for my sweet hubby who puts all of this stuff together…you’d think some of it would come somewhat put together….NOPE! :) And they like to give you very little directions also… it’s quite amusing at times! ;-)

Anyway-

I know it’s now Wednesday and Sunday was a few days ago, but Sunday at C3 was amazing! I love our church- seriously. I’m so grateful for a real place that meets you where you are. I can’t wait for the new series this Sunday- check it out here! We also had our first 413 group on Sunday night- I missed hanging with our 413 students each week- it was awesome!

Not only is this Sunday a new series at C3… Colts football is back! :) I’m pretty excited about their first regular season game…Matt’s already informed me multiple times that I need to try and chill during the games. I guess he doesn’t want me getting all worked up and going into labor or something… ;-) What? I’m just a little passionate about my team! :)

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by…I remember celebrating the new year like it was yesterday! I have a feeling it’s only going to go by faster and faster with all these babies being born and weddings happening! It’s exciting :)

So it’s getting late – I need to head to bed or I will be totally unproductive tomorrow…and I have lots to do so that’s not really an option!

I’ll leave you with this in honor of The Office starting up again soon :)


RUDE!

I know this is old but it always makes me laugh! I LOVE it :) We watched this the other day hanging out with Barry, Kayleigh & the Broomfields :)

If you need a laugh check it out!
