Complete Chaos into Meaning

I think today was my breaking point. For those who don't know, Cole has been sick all week. I was hoping for a fever free day, but he woke up with over 100 again. After 3 days of being home with a sick baby my patience is thin. So, once his fever broke I decided to take him with me to work for a few hours...crazy I know! But, I am so behind with end of the year paperwork I have to do whatever I can. While I was getting dressed Cole poured my coke down the front of his shirt. Then, I accidently dropped money in water. Mad and stressed as I was, I thought what else can happen? Backing out of the garage I noticed that somebody's dog had been in our trash and it was strowed everywhere! So, as I am washing my hands from picking up trash I said "God, I'm listening!" This was God's way of telling me to take a deep breath and calm down. Sometimes we get so caught up in the craziness of life we lose sight of what's most important. Thank you lord for opening my eyes this morning!

Cole's New Swing Set

For Cole's birthday, we decided to build him a swing set...actually there is no we, Paul did all the building! We are pretty sure he would live outside if we let him and he loves to swing so we though it would be the perfect birthday present. Nothing makes me smile more than to hear him say "wing momma!" Sometimes he will let you swing beside him, but most of the time he is saying "push momma". His slide is really cool. It's a wavy slide and you actually go pretty fast down. He was a little timid of the slide at first; he would only go down if you were holding him. Tonight I managed to get him to slide down by himself. And, ofcourse, being the proud mom that I am, I clapped and told him good job! So, I totaly cracked up when I came down after him and he clapped his hands and said "yey mommy!" Now we look forward to our backyard fun every night!

Cole's 2nd Birthday

I cannot believe that my baby is turning 2! It seems like we just brought him home from the hospital and now he is celebrating his 2nd birthday. The theme for the party was "trains" he would say, "choo choo train mommy"! His nana made him a special train shirt to wear with his engineer striped shorts. We had the party at our house. Paul and I rented a space jump for the backyard. Plus, the kiddos had a new swing set to play on that Paul built. However, the weather wasn't as accommodating. It rained the first hour of the party. But, we still had a great time. Cole and his buddy LeeAnn had more fun playing in the rain....ofcourse you know they had to find a big puddle and fall in it! We had good food, great cake, and lots of fun! Cole got some really cool many that he can't decide what to play with first! I do have to say that the train rubber boots and the spider man motorized car has been a hit!

My First Blog

I have recently discovered that everyone has a blog but me! So, I thought I would give it a try. I'm still trying to figure out this whole blog thing, but it seems really fun and a good way to share my thoughts.
