Feliz Cumpleanos Kamden #1

These pix are totally out of the order I had planned for them, but you get the gist. 1 year ago I was panicking b/c we had just moved into our house and nothing was ready for Kamden. I received the call around 10a.m. that she was at the hospital and in labor. I had a huge anxiety attack which freaked my MIL out. Tim was trying to get everything at work ready for his departure, so getting the packing done was up to me. Basically we just threw anything and everything into the van and finally around 4p.m. took off for an 18 hour drive to Texas. I stayed awake the whole time so that I could keep the driver awake. So when we got there I was a bit delirious. At 4:43p.m. on 7-24-08 Kamden was born. It was so cool to talk to Pauline and hear him. Our first meeting was when he was 1 day old, and we haven't left his side since. He has blessed our family in so many ways. Kaleb loves him most of the time. You know how sibling rivalry is????!!!!
As I think back on our years of infertility and now sterility it was a difficult time, but we are so blessed to have gone through that and to have these precious boys as our sons. It is so easy to forget that I didn't give birth to them. Kaleb is so much like me it is crazy, and Kamden is still working on his personality. He is quite the character though! Happy Birthday to the bean. We love you as high as the sky and as deep as the ocean. You make us smile and laugh. You and your brother are much more than what we could have ever dreamed or imagined. We love you!!!!

Time Going By Way Too Fast

Kaleb very happy after defeating the big kids slide!!!!
Kamden is just happy to be getting ready for breakfast. This boy loves to eat!!!

Today is July 16th and in 1 month our big baby will be 4 and next week our not so little baby will be 1. It is so hard to believe!!!! Where did the time go???? Next year we will be preparing for Kaleb to start Kindergarten. The thought makes me want to cry. The last few years I have watched the neighborhood kids get on the bus the first day of school and I always cry. I know that he is excited about going, but I know that it will be hard to let go. Letting our kids grow up is not an easy task. But unfortunately there is nothing we can do about it. We just need to be there for every minute so that we can relish in everything they do and say. The Lord has so richly blessed us with the job of being our children's parents. They are each little gifts just waiting to blossom in this big world. Take care and take time to enjoy every minute possible with your little gifts!!!! Happy Thursday everyone!!!!

Everyone looking outside

Well here is a little bit of what has been going on. There are TONS more pix but for some reason they are not showing up. I will have to get Tim to take a look as he is much more computer savvy. I can't believe that is the middle of July. I guess that it is true that time flies when you are having fun. The next big happenings for us will be Kamden turning 1 and Kaleb turning 4. I can't believe that at all!!! Just last year we were preparing for Kamden's birth and now here we are. It seems like Kaleb was never a baby. He is so independant which is good at times. We are so happy with our boys and who knows what the future will hold for us. Kaleb still asks regularly for a sister and I still tell him to talk to the Lord about it. If He wants us to have a daughter He will make it happen. Happy Tuesday and there will be many more pix in the not so distant future.

WAYYYY Behind!!!!

Well once again I have falled prey to being a blogger slacker. We have been super busy with vacation and just life in general. There are lots of cute pix on our camera that I plan to download today, so keep checking back. Tim had an orthopeodic appt. today and his knee is progressing nicely, slow, but nice. We had to be extra careful at the beach, but we had a great time. Now we are back to reality and right around the corner is football season. I am trying not to think about it. Happy Monday everyone!!!!
