Ya know, I think I really do this for myself because I like to share my life and my family with my friends. I never know who all reads this but if you do hopefully you'll enjoy it. I miss blogging but like everything else, it's new and fun for a while and then something else comes along or I get bored but I thought I'd give it another try.
So much has happened since the last time I blogged in April or May 2010; hard to believe it's been 2 years! I lost my sweet daddy in October 2010 and what's crazy is before that summer before he died I had never envisioned my parent's dying. I guess I thought your parents died when they were old as dirt and you were old too and your kids were grown with kids of their on but I realized the hard way that's not always the way it is. I feel blessed to have had daddy for 8 days shy of 30 years but what makes me the saddest is that Sam will never get to experience what a wonderful man he was...
Anyways life has gone on and for the most part it's been good. Sam is growing like crazy and he so independent and vocal! Watch what you say b/c he will repeat it!! He's fun. In January Frazier taught him to climb out of his bed, yes that's right, my husband taught him how. He had never once tried before so we had to go to a big boy bed. I was kind of iffy about it wondering how Sam would do but he's done great and I think that's given him a new sense of independence. Sam has also had his adenoids and a new set of tubes earlier this year and life for us has changed in the most positive way since then b/c Sam actually sleeps so much better! For you moms and dads who's kids slept all night at an early age you are very lucky! Don't ever take that for granted!
We went to Disney World in October and that was fun! Sam rode on an airplane for the first time. I have a whole new respect for people that fly with children! Sam had a ball! He really like the playground where we stayed and his favorite part of the parks were the parades each day. We got to go to Mickey's Not so Scary Halloween party and that was really awesome! We were there for a week and had a blast!
Moving on..Let's see we joined FBC Montgomery which has been such a wonderful experience for us. We visited a few other churches and all was good, really no complaints but FBC was the first church that Sam did the best in. He now says "I go to Sunday School" as he runs down the hall to class. This is also Frazier and my first church to join together and that is special. We are still visiting SS classes but I think we've finally found one that fits both of us just perfectly. The good thing about visiting different classes is getting to meet so many great people!
We are so happy it's spring time now and the weather is pretty! We love being outside and watching Sam play. We had a wonderful Easter with our family and Sam thoroughly enjoyed himself and he really enjoyed the 4 egg hunts he went on, he's a pro now!
In the past 2 years I've met so many new friends and had so many wonderful times! It's like I turned 30 and then 31 and really discovered who I was, what I liked and how much fun life really is. Don't get me wrong life was fun before then but I've just been blessed by a lot of people in the last couple of years!
So much has happened and I could write all day but for now that's a brief update! I hope to be better about my blogging!!
One last thing...If you are reading this I would ask that you keep Jeff & Mandy Moody and their family in your prayers. Their 7 week old baby girl Lela has been diagnosed with retinablastoma, a malignant cancer in the eye. They are traveling next week to St. Jude's hospital. They also have 2 other small children who will be with Mandy's parents. I know that I can't imagine what they are going through and the only thing I do know is the love I have for my child and that says it all. This is a precious family and they need God's healing for Lela!
