This could be the hardest and the most exhausting thing I have ever done. However, I love every second of it.

Crafting For Cash

This wire thing was left here when we moved in. So instead of throwing it out I re purposed it. What do you think? Love it? I am going to paint the pins black. Any suggestions?

Mom's Blog

I am keeping this blog intact for ranting and venting needs. So here I go:

  • I am sick of pads. I have pads everywhere!  My boobies and 'girl stuff' is padded. I am sick of it! 
  • I hate that sitting on the floor kills me! It hurts so bad! 
  • Laughing makes my 'girl stuff' ache. :( 
  • I have to sleep with a bra or my boobs leak all over our bed. 
  • I hate that NOTHING fits! 
However here are some things that I enjoy:
  • Waking up to my sweet boy making cute noises.
  • I love being able to bond and feed my little guy. It's OUR time and I love it. 
  • I love that my hair has not fallen out yet. (knock on wood)
  • I love kissing Cash. I could kiss him all day long. 
  • I really like how big my boobs are. ;)
  • I like that my ankles are back to normal. 
  • I can't decide on which sewing project to start on for my little man. 
  • I love my little family!

August 23, 2011

This was a big day! I gave birth to my lover boy! I had no idea my Lima Bean was a boy! Funny thing is when he came out and the doctor told us it was a boy it was as if we knew all along. Our Cash had finally arrived.

Whoever said birth is a beautiful thing must not have done it. It was messy and painful. The beautiful part was when they put him on my chest and I looked at him for the first time. Steven and I kept looking at each other and then at him. We were both crying. It really was beautiful. The nurses cleaning him up the doctor was still working on me but it was all hushed and all that I could hear and see was my family.

We went from 2 to 3 in one very painful and horrific push. I cannot imagine my life without him. It was like we were always this family of 3 [plus one, don't forget Squid].

I love seeing my husband hold our baby. It is the most amazing thing ever. Seeing Steven go from Radical Steve-o to Rad Dad is awesome.

Things are changing. Lots of things. Things that would normally scare me but because of who I am making these changes with I am excited!

This baby will be here VERY soon. I can't wait to experience the changes that are going to happen.

Things I Love

I love that my husband sits at the island in the kitchen and chats with me while I cook. I absolutely love the time we spend there together. We have family dinner together every night. I can't wait for our Lima Bean to arrive so it can be apart of this tradition.

I love my husbands kiss-hug-kiss routine in the morning. Every morning no matter how bad my hair looks or how nasty my morning breath is he kisses, then hugs, and then kisses me again. I love it! We have done this same thing for 6 years!

I love how honest and cute my husband is (especially when he is asleep). He will roll over, pull me close, and will say a few sweet things in my ear. The next morning he has no idea it happened but I do. He isn't much for gushy lovey dovey stuff so I absolutely love taking advantage of his vulnerability when I can.

I love coming home to a angry disgruntled cat after a long day. He gets so mad that I leave him home. I love hearing him tell me off when I walk in the door. He is mad for about a second and then he forgives me and can't get enough of me.

I love watching my husband and cat play. They are hilarious. The way they both plan the best way to 'out smart' the other is awesome. There is never a winner because one has yet to outsmart the other.

I love how willing, loving, understanding, forgiving, and perfect my husband has been throughout my pregnancy. I know I have not been the easiest wife to deal with but he never gets irritated or annoyed. He does every little thing I ask for and does any task with a smile. I really do not deserve him.

I love how my husband cleans our house every weekend that I work without asking. If I go to work on a Saturday or a Sunday he cleans the house from top to bottom. (well almost, he won't touch the toilets. but that is totally okay with me).

My husband is fantastic. He is my everything. I couldn't survive day to day life without him. He makes everything worth it and fun.

That day changed my whole life. I became a wife, lover/best-friend, daughter-in-law, aunt, and sister-in-law. I was 19 years old. He was 24. We were madly in love.

Where are we today?

It has been 6 years. I am still a wife, lover/best-friend, daughter-in-law, aunt, and sister-in-law. I am almost a mother as well. Not only am I almost a mom but we are almost parents. Our lives have changed so much in 6 years.

We have finished school, bought a home, adopted a crazy cat, started a family, settled into our careers and have continued to love each other every single day.

I still get butterflies when I hear Steven's truck pull into the garage. In our 6 years we have only been apart for 1 night. We both hated being apart. We still do everything together. Literally. We go everywhere together. If there is a project we complete it together.

6 years later and I would still make the same choices all over again.
