And today, I did it...

Have you ever wanted to do something, or be apart of something, but wasn't sure where to begin?  Well, that is me, and here I am.  I have wanted a blog since I first found out I was pregnant with my son M, who is now 2.  I wanted to capture our pregnancy through the cravings and even weight gain, to the birth, and carry on telling about all the 1st moments to the 1st Birthday, and so on.  But I didn't, not sure why, I kept telling myself that I didn't have time, but I think I was scared more than anything about putting our life out there, for the everyone to see.  I wanted to be a part of the blog world, where I have learned some creative ways of parenting, cooking, crafting, and fashion.  Of course some of it has been successful, and then some of it not so much, just like with anything else, some of it works and some of it doesn't.  I have also learned, now having two babies, each one is different, and I have to honestly say, I can't believe how different they can be.  My son & daughter are night & day. My son was so calm and never cried, was a good eater, never had problems really getting him to sleep, up until now (and we only have problems getting him to bed, when his daddy puts him down.  Not sure why we have such a hard time, but my son wants to be with his daddy non-stop).  But my daughter is a DRAMA QUEEN, she cries & screams when she is hungry, tired or not getting her way, she isn't the best eater, and as for sleeping we just now got her into hear own bed, but I have to say, she did way better than I thought she would in her own crib.  We didn't get her room painted until she was 4 months old, and then my husband decided he wanted to paint a tree on her wall, awesome, I know right.  It still isn't completed, and A is going on 6 months old.  I finally just told him, I want our angel in her own room!  So, her room is a total mess, hopefully one day it will be completed.  That is another thing that is different, with my son, we had his room done a good 2 months before he was born.  And my daughters room, still not done...  

Most of the blogs I follow, are from the view point of stay at home moms.  Which I often find myself becoming somewhat jealous of those mothers.  Being able to capture every 1st moments, that I often miss, and have to hear about from someone else (my husband, he is a stay at home father).  Not to mention, I don't usually see my kiddos in the morning before I leave for work, and in the evening, there are times I might get two or so hours with them, before we start the bedtime routines.  It's hard, so I wanted a place to capture the time I do have with the kiddos.  I might complain some too, everyone has an off or bad day, and every woman I believe has a little drama.  So I welcome myself, here today, I have done it, I have created a blog.  I'm not the best writer, I don't always us correct grammar, nor am I the best speller.  I have learned over the years to deal with it.  It's part of me, and that's part of my charm.  I'm perfectly, imperfect...  

I'm not sure how this all works, but I will figure it out as I go.  I took the first step, and created an account, so the rest will fall into place, as everything in life usually does.

I look forward to sharing our journey, and capturing the most precious gifts in my life, M & A.   

This is my handsome little man M.  He is my 1st born.  When he smiles & laughs, it melts my heart.  He is a handy man boy.  I can’t believe he is 2, it seems like yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital, and now he wants to do everything himself.  He wants to do everything, that he sees his daddy doing, as in I can do it better.  He also loves getting to help pick out what sissy will wear.  He picked out most of her clothes that I bought when I was pregnant.  It was a game we played, and I'm all about giving our children options.
This is my beautiful baby girl A.  She is my 2nd born.  She was a total surprise, but what a great surprise she was.  I love to see her toothless smile, and hear her hiccup laugh.  She does like to scream, and doesn’t have much patience's, but that’s okay, nor does mommy & daddy.   She loves to cuddle with mommy & daddy.  She adores her big brother, and he adores her.  

As there are times in my life that I complain, or even go through the whole I'm feeling sorry for myself, pity party for one days...  I'm very thankful & grateful for the blessing that I have in my life.

XOXO, Shanna
