365 Pics - Day 10-34

It has been a long while since I posted. Sorry for that.

I know you all missed me terribly.

So I haven't downloaded pics in a while either, so I'm going from memory. Anyone who knows me knows that can be dangerous territory.

In need of assistance

Does anyone know how to get notifications about when searches bring people to my blog? Just curious to know.

I saw this on another blog and was so moved by it I had to post it on my own.

365 Pictures

So I got this cool idea from my mommy friend Heather. She is taking and posting 1 picture a day for 365 days. I thought this would be a great way to chronicle a year of David's life. So here is #1.

Born Again American

I would encourage everyone to view this video. People, we need to start heavy-duty praying for this country. In addition, we need to start standing up for what we believe. It is time to stop the select few from taking away our rights!

Clean up that mess!

I thought I should blog because I haven't said much lately. So this may be boring to a few (or all) of you! But hey some people probably think my life is boring...

So Monday I met up with a new mommy friend, Danielle, and her daughter Hayley. David warmed up to her so well. I've never seen him do that. He was so good with her, it made me proud. Her daughter is so adorable. I hope they will be good friends.

Oh the whole way there he discovered the word for "ditch", although he didn't quite pronounce it that way. Use your imagination. I've also discovered that he thinks all the crops & gardening along Hwy 36 is "nasty" and they "made mess" and they need to "clean up". Are these the words I'm teaching my son? Maybe I need to get a grip.

Later, when Bryan was giving David a bath, he started singing "Happy Birthday" in the bathtub. David, not Bryan...hahaha. "Happy Birthday" is David's new favorite song to sing. Although when I need him to calm down I sing "Jesus Loves Me".

Tuesday, after school David was throwing things in the living room - something he knows he shouldn't do. I managed to get "David" out of my mouth and he said "stop it right now" and "go timeout". I had to turn my head and laugh at that one.My boy is getting so smart. Every day I am surprised by something new he has done.

Some days I feel like a great mom. Other days I feel like I could do better. He is my blessing from heaven, and I know his dad and I have an enormous responsibility in raising him. I feel priviledged to have been chosen to be his mommy!

My Sweet David

2 Years ago today my life changed completely. I was blessed with a beautiful baby boy. Now I cannot even remember my life before you were in it.

2 Years ago today we were in the hospital. Me a new mom…not knowing what in the world I was supposed to do with this sweet little boy. But we have grown and learned together.

Boy have you learned! You are so smart. You blow me away everyday with what you are learning, and your love of learning.

You have taught me what it means to unconditionally love another human being. My whole outlook on how God loves us is changed, now that I have a son of my own. No matter what happens, I will always love you. Just as God will always love me, no matter what.

I love you my sweet boy. Happy Birthday.

Goodnight Mommy

Tonight when we tucked David into bed he say "Nigh Nigh Mommy" and "See you mawning". I feel so blessed!
