So I am beginning to realize that I may have a small addiction and that is baby stuff especially baby shoes.

Here is the deal, I was single until I was 33 so if I wanted something I bought it, I was blessed to have a great job and conveniently lived across the street from the galleria so needless to say I treated myself very well materialistically speaking (if that is a word) so I am at the place in life that buying new clothes or shoes for myself doesn't thrill me and as sad as it is to say even a Coach purse doesn't make my heart skip a beat anymore....but baby stuff does....

One major addiction I have is baby shoes, especially Robeez, when you have a girl you can dress them in a little onesies put a cute bow in their hair and they look adorable, where as boys are the opposite if you put a onesies on them they look very under dressed or they are missing something unless they have an adorable pair of shoes and it completes the outfit so needless to say as I was getting the little one ready this weekend I realized that my addiction could be getting out of hand when you start picking out his shoes and then looking for something to match them.....

I am not a big resale store person, to be honest the stores always seem to smell to me and they are so overpriced. You can actually find stuff cheaper at TJ Maxx and Marshalls new for what they want for it used, but this weekend the stores proved me wrong. I found 3 pairs of the robeez for 3.50 a piece and two of them were brand new.

I told Josh there are worst things to be addicted too :-) and shoes are a lot cheaper than Coach purses!

My husband.

When Josh and I first met we both fell pretty hard right away, after about 2 weeks of dating we started seeing each other every day, 7 months later he proposed, three months later married, his mom passed away the day we landed from our honeymoon, Josh was put over his moms estate, I miscarried, became pregnant 3 months later, preterm labor at 31 weeks and now a baby.... Our lives have always been busy, we both had our own circle of friends and also both came from big families so we always had someplace to be or someone we needed to call or visit, but the past week I have felt that life was finally slowing down or maybe I should say I was slowing down.

Now that I am back to work, we are on a schedule which is nice and its given me time to just relax and think more ( scary thought :-) ) The past couple days I keep thinking about how great of a person that I am married too.

I married a man that is a wonderful husband, awesome dad, great son-in-law, and a good son. I have seen him at the happiest time of his life ( seeing his son for the first time) and the saddest ( his mom passing away) and I can say that everything we have been through has made me fall more in love with him. He is not perfect in anyway, yes he says things that he shouldn't and yes he is a pack rat and yes he would rather fix something than to go buy something new....but he is perfect for me, he has held me everytime I cried, he laughs with me, he is patient when I am moody and listens when I need to vent. When I couldn't decide rather to work or stay home, he just quietly commented that he would support what decision I made....and he has. I am so glad that he came into my life. He truly makes me a better person.

This blog is for Josh, no one needs to comment and if you are rolling your eyes than stop reading it and by tomorrow I will be posting more blogs about our gorgeous baby, but tonight I wanted to post this...its my blog I can write what I want to and its your time so you can read what you want too :-)

Stewie no rolling your eyes :-) I am having an emotional day.

A giving family...

So Gideon was sick last week and then was very generous and gave it to Josh and Josh not wanting me to feel left out has given it to me. I was feeling great until Friday night and then suddenly it hit me hard on the way home from having dinner with the girls. Thanks to someone's antibotics I just now started to feel better, I avoided giving the little one any kisses and getting to close that way I dont give it back to him. Now I understand what my sister meant when she said one gets it we all get it. Hopefully by this coming weekend we will get to be with friends again :-)

On a brighter note, this week went great at work. I am still feeling like a fish out of water with being gone for 4 months, but by friday I was starting to remember parts of the job. I can say I love my new schedule, only having to be away from him two days a week is wonderful.

Well its Sunday night and this blog will be short, I need to go get things ready for the Closing Ceremony of the Olympics. :-)

One World - One Dream

I am not a big tv watcher, but Josh & I have been glued to the tv this week watching the olympics. I can say this has been one of the best years I have watched them. If you can keep me awake till midnight watching tv you know it has to be great.

Go - Michael Phelps! What else can you say, the guy is amazing. I love this comment from him "The biggest thing is nothing is impossible" and I think he has proven it.

My favorite is Shawn Johnson, what an all American girl. She is so adorable and I love how she glows after each performance. Proud she is on our team.

Ok, going to bed - sleep tight friends!

My first day back at work and I survived...

Well I did it!! I made it through the day....ok so I called Carrie several times to check on him and I didn't take pictures to show off, because I knew if I started talking too much about him I would start crying. Josh told me not to put my make up on till I got to work in case I started to cry (he was right) I am telling you this little guy has me wrapped around his little finger.

Thank you, Aunt Carrie for taking such great care of our little one!!

Here is a picture of him tonight, I think he may of played too hard with Chloe :-)

Our little one is two months old!!

Well our little one is two months old today and is growing in leaps and bounds. He now weighs 12 pounds and is 25 inches long. He is holding his head up and is sleeping at least 5-6 hours at night, which makes him a total angel. He is a very happy baby, smiling and cooing all the time. He is a little charmer with everyone and has wrapped me around his little finger, its amazing how much you can love someone.

Two Months Old Today - Happy Birthday, little one.

Well our little one is two months old today and is growing in leaps and bounds.   He now weighs 12 pounds and is 25 inches long.   He is holding his head up and is sleeping at least 5-6 hours at night, which makes him a total angel.   He is a very happy baby, smiling and cooing all the time.    He is a little charmer with everyone and has wrapped me around his little finger, its amazing how much you can love someone.


He also had his shots this week and has been a little fussy & running a fever so we let him sleep with us.  The picture below where he is laying on the pillows, he actually thinks he is being held :-) someone has been a little spoiled this week.

Last week we went to camp, here is a picture of cousin Katie.  She is very fond of Gideon.

On a personal note, the past two months have been a great adventure.  As much as having a baby changes things, I love it. He has totally melted my heart, its funny I have always loved my nieces and nephews, but this little guy has done things to my heart that I didnt think was possible.   He is truly his daddy's son. :-)
