Golden Birthday

Wade is officially a "Golden Birthday Boy", he is now one year old. It is true what they say, "It goes so fast." It seems like only yesterday we were waking up in the middle of the night to nurse, practicing tummy time, rocking back in forth in anticipation to crawl and practicing our balance together before the first big steps.
It makes me sad to think Wade is one already but happy at the same time. We kept him alive for a whole year! What an accomplishment as a parent. There were some days where Kyle and I just looked at each other in disbelief that all of this was happening, praying someone would take care of us again especially when Wade was sick and we caught the same bug. But through it all, we survived. And now we have a wonderfully spunky little boy that has 8 teeth, walks around, explores, learns, says dadda and mama and smiles continuously.
I love him more than anything and already gave my husband permission to save Wade's life over mine any day of the week. I have dreams for this little boy to be a great man of God, sharing his word and inviting friends to know Jesus. I dream of Wade playing to trombone or being on the swim team with long arms and strong shoulders. We want him to go to School of Mines to be an Engineer, probably electrical knowing his fascination with cords. BUT whatever he decides to do will be great and I will be there to cheer him on no matter what. 
Happy Golden Birthday Wade!

Mom Time

Moms are the best. And that's true for mine. She visited this past weekend and was very helpful! Helped plan Wade's Golden Birthday Party, babysat while I caught up on work, cleaned my house, and quilted with me!  It was a fun special weekend and very helpful! The best part is, now Wade's quilt is all quilted!

Summer Olympics

I am loving watching the summer olympics in Rio this past week. My favorite sports to watch are of course women's gymnastics, swimming (all sorts), sand volleyball and tennis. It's been a real treat to watch these athletes compete almost every night on NBC prime time. But what I'm really loving is following the olympics in social media like Instagram (@nbcolympics) and snap chat! Their stories and memes are absolutely the best! They give highlights and thoughts every normal person has during the course of watching someone complete a triple flip, full twisting layout. 
I'm excited to watch again tonight and GO USA!
