Did I tell you that RED is my favorite color? I have it decorated in almost every room in my house. After, this incident I am rethinking what my favorite color is. Now I have it on the floors in a couple of rooms of the house. My hubby thought it was lipstick at first and was questioning my parenting skills=0). Not really!

The story is that I was making a list for Sam's. My sweet boy wanted to help. So I found those toddler crayon wobble things for him to use on his on paper. It is suppose to encourage them to color and be "child proof." I mean in the sense of not taking out the crayon. I am writing my list when I look up in 5 seconds(or so it felt) he had taken the crayon out and used as a decorative devise. Oh what fun!!!!

Here are a couple more pics for your entertainment..

2 years ago, Yesterday

2 years ago yesterday, I found out I was pregnant! It was a strange week for me that week anyway. I could not get enough milk. The checkout lady started to recognize me after 3 trips in a row. I could not lift my arms to save my life when I was napping. I slept all day. I would wake up at 6:30 make hubby his breakfast, eat something for me, and then back to bed at 8:30 or so until noon. I would eat lunch and go back to bed until hubby got home from work. Somehow I would scramble dinner together, eat with hubby, and then back to bed at 7 p.m. until the next morning. This went on for weeks past the time I took my test at home. That day July 19th 2007 is one I will never forget!

I had gone to the store to get MILK! I know it was a hard guess =0). I remember thinking to myself maybe I should get a pregnancy test just incase. This was nothing new to me buying the tests that is. I had bought dozens before only to find the results with a big fat negative. Anyway, I had stopped at chik fil a to get lunch before I headed on home. I remember being hot. I took off my clothes to put on at tank top and shorts. I thought okay I will take the test. "It is way to early Lord. I mean come on I haven't even missed a period." I sat there and did my thing. Not even 2 seconds of waiting....."positive" it read. Hummm....somethings wrong. My heart was beating so fast. I called my very best friend from college only to find her in the baby section of Barnes and Nobles purchasing me a book about the development of a fetus with pictures in it! I said "can a test read positive that could be false?"  She replied " why?????"  "I just took test but it is too early to take one so I am thinking it is wrong."  I can hear her start to cry on the phone and her voice began to shrill with excitement. She explained to me how that would be next to impossible. Then she asked me  " how early?"   I told her, " Just 2 weeks or so." The funny part,  I was so excited that I did not realize that my shorts had fallen off of me while I was running through the house crying with JOY!  I remember stopping, looking down, and saying "oh, I hoped that no one just saw me."  I then began to plan how I would tell hubby. I remember cooking a gourmet dinner, wrapping the test in a box, and giving him a card. He thought it was about his promotion celebration dinner. Then when he saw the box he grinned. I will never forget it!

Thank you so much God for our sweet blessing!

Love and so much more

Do you ever love someone so much that your heart could just burst? I truly did not know this kind of love until my son entered the world.

Seriously, today was just one of those precious days with my son. All of the grandparents are in town so we are having such a blast! We had our little man's pictures taken with his daddy and granddaddy at Portrait Innovations with none other than Bryan! It went really well and then Bryan took some of just my son. I will have to post them later. Anyway, I was gone this morning to a "how to class" on laying tile down for flooring with my mom. I was gone most of the morning until time to go get portraits done. After the portraits were done, my son became very clingy. I think he missed me today =0). It was time for dinner so we agreed to eat at Cafe Express while we waited on our pictures being printed. I did not want to climb back in the van towards the back seat for such a short drive. The grandmothers have knee issues so they had to ride in the van. I walked! Well, little man did not want me to go at it alone. We walked hand in hand over to the restaurant. It was perfect! I just love those moments. I looked down at my son with his tiny hand in mine pondering on the love I have for him. Knowing that nothing can separate the love I have for him! That is when it hit me! That is how Christ sees me. Oh I have known this but to RRRREEEally feel it is another. He lovingly holds my hand down the path of life. It is an amazing feeling to get a glimpse of Christ through your child.


Have a blessed day friends!
