Ok, so I had this crazy idea to start a blog. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I have a lot of things I want to share about my life as a mommy, although I have no idea where to begin. I guess as the old saying goes," Just start from the beginning".
I became a mommy in July of 2006, she weighed 8 pounds and was 21 inches long. Never in my life have I ever felt the way I did when they placed my baby girl in my arms for the first time. As I looked down at her I couldn't believe that I could fall instantly in love with this perfect little person. I cried tears of joy, and sent up a prayer asking God to give me whatever it was going to take to be a good mother. Sadie Renee is now almost 5 years old, and I must say they have been the most wonderful 5 years of my life. Now, it's not always been easy, and for the most part it's actually really hard. I'm responsible for the upbringing of a person who will one day be an adult. The choices that my daughter will make when she is older, is going to be a reflection of the things her father and I instilled in her. No pressure, right? Sadie continues to amaze me on a daily basis, she is so smart and it's so interesting to see the different traits she has picked up between her daddy and I. She is a lot like her daddy, but she loves like her mommy.... Sadie has the biggest, kindest heart. She doesn't like to see anyone sad, and she will try her best to make you laugh if you are. I couldn't imagine my life without Sadie, and I hope it's a very long time before I have to.....
With that being said, God has blessed me with another precious life to take care of... Olivia Riann was born on December 28, 2010, the best late Christmas present ever! She weighed 7 pounds 12 oz, and was 20 1/2 inches long. A little smaller than her big sister, but a workout to bring in to this world. My husband and I waited 2 long years for this bundle of joy, and now we are cherishing every moment. It's going to be very interesting to see the similarities and differences between Sadie & Olivia. I do know that my husband and I are going to have our hands full with these girls, but I'm hoping that they take everything that their daddy and I are teaching them and use it well.
I wanted to start this blog for all the mommies that are just like me, spending their days running after kids, and loving every moment of it. Sure, i'm exhausted at the end of the day and I can barely keep my eyes open to watch a little t.v. with the hubby, but my kids are healthy and safe, and look so darn cute when they are sleeping :) I'm going to try and write every couple days to tell y'all what the girlie's are up to, and the memories we are making.
So until my fingers dance with the keyboard again, keep at it mommies... :)
