A basic, yet wonderful, day!

This afternoon, I was just playing with Steven (what else is new?:) ) As we were playing, I just had this overwhelming feeling of being blessed! I am so blessed to have such a special little guy to spend each and every day with all the time! I definitely know the Lord sent him to our family right when we needed him, and I absolutely would not trade any of my "planned dreams" that were on my list before he was born. I'm perfectly content that instead of getting a degree before having kids, I got Steven and then the degree. I'm thankful for the gospel to help me know that being a wife and mother are the reason why I am here, and I only know it's going to get better every single day!
In case I don't put enough pictures of this cute little guy on here, here are some more for you!
I got this amazing exercise ball for Christmas, and Steven used to be afraid of it, but now he LOVES it!Playing with daddy! I got a bunch of clothes from my sis-in-laws when Steven was born, so today I went through starting to find 18 month clothes, so I can know what I need to start buying on clearance sales. He thought it would be great to dress himself and have a party!
These brown eyes are basically irresistable!
Looking at the window after Daddy went to Elders Quorum meeting. He was trying to find him.

OH Janell. That was heart touching. I feel the same way. I am almost done with my degree, but I am more glad that I had Braeden instead. Being a mom is such a blessing. Hope all is well.

Okay, it's settled then. We set your boy up with one of my girls in a few years and end up with the cutest grandbabies ever! :) lol But seriously, how do you ever tell him no with that face?

yay! I am so excited to start my new career as a mommy! I truly believe that Heavenly Father knows what's best for our lives way better than we do. I wasn't so sure about the timing of this little one, but I know that she will bless our lives so much.
