I try. I really do. I so want to be a good blogger....I miss it. Writing used to be such a creative outlet for me so why am I not on here more often? An overactive 2 year old? Could be. More like lack of inspiration...I have been delving into the photography realm more lately. Recently I took some engagement pictures for a great couple from my church and I had a blast. They were more than happy with them and so was I. Taking pictures makes this mama happy. Very happy. Of course that little overactive 2 year old makes mama happy too! He has such the personality, and oh so sweet. I just love him more and more every day. He really is so smart. He can count to 20 now, says his ABC's and sings several songs. He keeps my days interesting that's for sure.
In the midst of my very long absence, I turned the dreaded 30! I have to say, it has been pretty good. I guess 30 isn't so bad after all. I mean, my 20's weren't all that fantastic..(well my early to mid at least) so I look forward to seeing what my 30's have in store. I know God has some great plans! My birthday fell on a Sunday and I had the nicest, most relaxing day! My mom made my favorite meal and then we went to the mall and just lounged around. The weekend after my bday, we went out to dinner and hung out with some couple friends of ours. It was a good time. Here is a picture of Jake and me on the big birthday!!
The day after my birthday on April 19th, my good friend Hannah gave birth to a little boy named Jeremiah Thomas. We knew ahead of time that Jeremiah had spina bifida. We didn't, however, know the extent. I don't think that even Chris and Hannah know all Jeremiah will face but they do know they love this little boy with all their heart. They are an amazing couple who love the Lord, and they know that He has great plans for little Jeremiah. Please keep this sweet couple in your prayers. They really could use it right now. They are still in the NICU with Jeremiah and are having to be away from their sweet 2 year old girl Elli, which isn't easy. I got to take some pictures of sweet Jeremiah. Meet the sweetest little boy I have ever laid eyes on...yes, I used to think Connor was the sweetest baby, but honestly little Jeremiah takes the cake. He just oozes sweetness....how I love him...
Well, there it is...I am really going to put forth an honest effort here...if not for anyone but myself. I used to journal and I don't anymore. I really love the idea that this can be something I will look back on when Connor is older. Hoping to stay with it...because really, my intentions are there. :)
