Happy 2010!

Wow! I can't believe that 2009 is over! What a {{whirlwind}}it has been! It's been a truly amazing year. Obviously, what I'm talking about is the fact that this year, I was given the best gift anyone could ever ask for. I became a mother! Not only did I become a mother, but I became a mother to the most beautiful little girl in the world! Hayden Isabella is truly a gift from God. She's been such a sweet and happy baby from day 1. June 20, 2009 at 12:26 am, my world changed. There will hopefully be more babies to come in the future, but there will never be another first baby. Hayden has such a bubbly and joy-filled personality that brings a smile to everyone's face who gets to meet her. All I want in this world is be the best mommy I can be to her. I want to be with her every waking moment. I love the precious time I have a night with her, cuddling, praying with her, singing to her, reading to her, nursing her, every moment is special and cherished.

This year, Hayden has gone from:
a {{rumble}} in my belly (1 week exactly before giving birth)...

to a gift from God in my arms...

to a growing little girl (2 weeks old)

to a joyful, spirited little girl (3 months old)

to a beautiful little cuddle girl (5 months old)

to a rolly polly, little scooter (6 months old)

to a little girl with a sweet smile, who's a good eater!
and who is the another {{love of my life}}...
With this New Year, I obviously have resolutions. Hopefully, this year will be different than past years and I'll actually stick to them!

  • 1. Be the best mommy I can be
  • a. teaching Hayden about God, leading her to a life devoted to Christ
  • 2. Be the best wife I can be
  • a. committing to love truer, deeper, and more faithfully, and with the love of Christ
  • 3. Grow closer to God
  • 4. Be a better friend to everyone
  • a. call more, text more, more face to face contact time
  • 4. LOSE WEIGHT ... uggh... that's an EVERY year resolution
  • 5. Stay home with my baby!
  • 6. Blog better and learn how to make money doing it!
  • 7. Work on selling the headbands I make!

Now... goals are set. This should be a fabulous year! I hope things work out in my favor! I'd love to hear what your resolutions are! That way we can help each other keep them!
