It has been way too long

Hello Everyone!
Sorry it has been so long since my last blog:(
I hope to get better at posting on a more regular basis. Since my last post we have celebrated Thanksgiving, Christmas,and Maleah, Corbin, and Kaitlyn's birthdays.
I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season!
I can't believe how much all of the kids are growing up. Maleah just turned 3, Corbin just turned one, Kaitlyn just turned 4, and Alex is already almost 10 months old. Our babies are all growing up too fast!

Time For An Update

Well where should I begin? Kaitlyn is growing like a weed and changing so much, she looks like such a big girl now, and most of her baby features are a thing of the past. Kaitlyn is an absolutely wonderful little girl, although she has a bad temper that has the habit of popping up at the worst of times, we couldn't love her more than we do now!!
Our family from Alabama ( some of them) and from Georgia (minus Justin & Anna), were here for what seemed like the blink of an eye, and we all miss them so much! I love the time that I get to spend with my family from out of state, and cherish those times more than they will ever know.
Kevin and I celebrated our 12 year wedding anniversary on July 5th, and Kevin celebrated his 35th birthday on July 11th. I am so greatful to have such a wonderful relationship with Kevin, he was meant for me, he is my other half, he is my soul mate, and I thank God everyday for leading me to him!!
My Dad and Mom are both doing well, they work a lot, and eventhough they are right up the road we don't see each other as much as we could or should for that matter.
Bob and Miranda's kids are growing up so fast. Maleah is 2 1/2 now and just an all around beautiful little girl, and Alex will be 4 months on Aug. 6th and talk about handsome, he is adorable with a little smile to match!
Bobby and Nicole are doing an amazing job with Corbin he just turned 6 months old, he is so absolutely precious, he loves to eat his baby food, he loves to bounce in his jumperoo, and he can't wait to be a big kid!
My life is pretty good I must say, I am learning so much everyday about myself. Somehow through becomeing a Mommy I have gained, self respect, self appreciation, self worth, and a backbone. I used to be a push over and let people, walk all over me, say things to me without standing up for myself, well not aymore, I have learned how to use my voice, say what you want to me, because you will be getting an earful back!!
I will end this blog post with one of my favorite quotes, "Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect, it means you've decided to look past the imperfections."

Kaitlyn is 95% potty trained, she still wears pull-ups at night, and she is terrified of public bathrooms! Other than that she now has peeing and pooping in the potty down pat! I am so proud of my big girl! We now have to have her "Kaitlyn Pooped In The Potty Party" complete with cake, ice cream, and balloons, because she has been doing it for over a week now! It is so very amazing and yet so very sad how fast kids grow up! All I can say is I try my best not to take anything for granted and treasure every moment I spend with Kaitlyn, because it all goes so fast!
** Hug and kiss your babies everyday, be sure to say I Love You, and treasure every moment!!

Memorial Day

A day to remember all those who have lost their lives fighting for our freedom, to pray for all those who are still fighting for our freedom, and to remember loved ones that have passed on. THANK YOU to all the men and women that are fighting for and have fought for our country!! Without your sacrifice who knows where we would be today!! GOD BLESS each and every one of you for all are doing and have done!
Thinking about loved ones that have passed away is so sad, I wish that all my loved ones would have been able to meet Kevin and Kaitlyn. I know they are all watching over us from heaven and are with us through each step of our lives, and that is comforting to me.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day, remember during your days of cookouts, family, and fun to stop and say a prayer for all of our soldiers that are fighting for our freedoms, and remember all the soldiers that have fallen, and thank God for taking care of our loved ones that have passed before us.
May God bless each and every one of you!!!

Happy Mother's Day!!

First of all I want to wish my Mom a Very Happy Mother's Day!! Then I also want to wish Miranda a Happy Mother's Day, this is her first mother's day as a mommy of two, and I also want to wish Nicole a Happy Mother's Day as well, since this is her first mother's day!
I hope that all Mommies out there have a wonderful Mother's Day! With each year that Kaitlyn and I have been together I feel even more close to my own Mom as we have shared quite a bit of what raising a child has in store. I really feel that the older Kaitlyn gets, the closer I will feel to my Mom!!
I am so very blessed to have such a wonderful Mom, and Kaitlyn is so very blessed to have a Mommy, "Mama", "Gammie", and "Mamaw" that all love her so very much!!

*Thank you Kaitlyn for making Mommy the happiest Mommy in the world!!*

Hello Everyone.....

I just thought I would update everyone on what is going on with us. Kaitlyn is growing up so fast, she knows her ABC's, and can identify her letters, she can count to 25 only missing 1 or 2 along the way, she is very observant and notice the smallest of details, she is looking and talking like such a big girl, and she loves to help me do dishes, clean, and cook dinner. Kevin just celebrated his second year at Lowe's, he continues to be way happier at Lowe's than he ever was at Burger King, he is a wonderful Daddy to Kaitlyn, and a wonderful husband to me. Then there is me, I work hard everyday to be the best Mommy and wife I can be, I am trying so hard to lose weight, I am enjoying the time I spend at home with Kaitlyn, and I am so thankful for all the blessings that I have in my life!! I have come the realization lately that I am a very simple person, I am no where near high maintenance. As long as I have Kevin and Kaitlyn, the love of my family and friends, and the overwhelming love of God, everything else is extra, and that makes me the luckiest person in the world!!
