{I have a pre-teen...what?!?!}


After pushing for over an hour, I, not so politely, informed my doctor that if this kid did not come out in the next twenty minutes I was giving up and he would have to cut him out. Lo and behold, this kid came flying out, yes, flying, that the doctor almost dropped him. It has been a high flying adventure since then.
The last twelve years have been a nonstop, crazy, bumpy, hilarious ride. We've laughed, we've cried, we've argued, we've yelled, we've loved and we've hugged. Sometimes he makes me want to lock him in his room and sometimes I want to lock myself in my room. But in the end, he will always be that boy that stole my heart with just one look.
Twelve years have never gone by sooo fast. At twenty-one, as I cradled this chubby faced baby, the thought that I would one day have pre-teen was baffling. But here I am, twelve years later, with a sometimes stinky, wise cracking, political, God fearing, crazy haired, big dreamer who keeps me on my knees when I'm not doubled over in laughter.
So, here's to the kid who made me a mommy!
Happy 12th Birthday, Shane!

{life lately::volume 10:: the crazy, beautiful}


life lately has been...
full of tears
a house overcome by clutter
dishes that are taking over the kitchen
a teething toddler
a screaming preschooler
full of tantrums
a moody preteen
full of sleepless nights
financially unstable
too many doctor appoints
full of laughs
full of new beginnings
found me on my knees
life lately has been...
beautifully broken

{life lately::volumne 9::enjoying the everyday}

crazy, chaotic, messy, beautiful, adventurous, busy...
these words describe my life as of late.
I have reconnected with family, celebrated my baby boy's first birthday, and seen God's hand work in crazy, mysterious ways...but awe, such is life.

{saying goodbye to my baby::a look over the last year}

Today is monumental.
Today my baby boy turns one! Tears are filling up as I write this, I still can't believe how fast this year has gone by.
This precious boy was a great surprise, but he's been the best surprised I've ever received. He fits perfectly into our little family...I can't remember life before him.
He is such a light of happiness. He wakes up with a smile that reaches from ear to ear and he goes to bed with same smile. He hardly cries, so when he does, it just makes you so sad. He loves to cuddle. He will cuddle with me any time of day, he doesn't care. If he needs a little cuddle time he will stop whatever he's doing and climb into my lap for a little cuddle. He loves his big brother and sister so fiercely; even when his sister is in one of her moods.
Today will be celebrating this little blessing with cupcakes and donuts. Please join me in wishing our little Sawyer-Grey a very happy, fun 1st birthday!
