New Blog Address

Family and Friends,

Once baby James was born and we became a family of three I figured it was probably appropriate to retire my college blog ( becomingyourdream.blogspot.com was a lame name anyway that I'm happy to get rid of).  I've gone ahead and created a new family blog that will detail the lives of myself, Mike, and little James.  I know, it's about time being that Mike and I have been married for 2.5 years now.  But better late than never, right?

Here is our new blog address:

Follow to stay caught up on our adventures (let's be honest- it will mostly just be pictures of our baby James because we can't get enough of him)!  If you have a blog that I'm not aware of let me know- it's a great way to stay connected!

Family of Three

I've squeezed a lot into my 27 years of life.
I've been a lot of places, seen a lot of things, and been blessed with so many opportunities.
But nothing compares to the joy I've experienced over the past two weeks.
Being a mother tops everything.

We are completely smitten by our little mister.
We love his big blue eyes, pouty lips, serious resting face, and blondie hair.
He's a cute little wiggle worm (just like he was in the womb), he loves playing with his hands, hates being swaddled, loves being burped, and sleeps like a champ through the night already.

He looks like his mom, but has the calm, contented, easy-going temperament of his dad.
He is a wise old soul, and has brought an incredible spirit to our home.
His grandparents & aunts and uncles can't get enough of him.  
He is absolutely perfect.

Mike has had the past two weeks off work, and we've been soaking up every single moment together as a little family of three.
