Ironic

It's ironic that the last post I did talked about how we were not pregnant and now over a year later - yes OVER a year, we have a 2 month old boy - Gabriel James.
I'm sure that most people have given up hope on this blog. A year is a long time.

Alot has happened in that year. The biggest change obviously is that Gabe is now in our lives. In a nutshell, pregnancy was awful! If you are one of those women who loved being pregnant - great good for you, but don't judge those of us who suffered from extreme nausea and vomiting, intense backpain, horrible insomnia and other symptoms that I don't want to get into. Also don't think that because I didn't love being pregnant, that I don't love my son and don't think that this is a miracle.

Parenting is great. Though we have had difficulty with breastfeeding we are starting to get it (9 weeks later. Gabriel is a gift from God. He's wonderful in every way! I love him with all of my heart! He has enriched our lives greatly!.
Gabe is a strong baby! He has been able to hold his head up since day 2, and rolled over yes rolled over on day 10. I am so proud and excited by these milestones but in the back of my mind I'm thinking that I will be running my butt off chasing him around:)...maybe this is a good thing.

Also in the year since I last blogged, Jason and I celebrated our 1st anniversary! It's hard to imagine that we've been married so short a time...it feels like we've been together forever. Our first year of married was fantastic! I love being married to Jason, he really is my best friend and my hero. I am so proud to be his wife!

Well I hope to keep this going a little better than once every year. I hope you are all doing well - if anyone actually reads this!

Blessings
