Life as we know it...

Things certainly have changed around here in the past two and a half weeks. Although it seems like Sparky has been here much longer than only eighteen days. I guess when your day is split into three hour (or less) segments, each day seems much longer!

I've never been somebody who felt that I needed to be a mother in order to have my life fulfilled. When Dave and I began seeing each other, we were both of the mindset that we did not want to have children. But, when I hold my little baby and rock him and he curls up and falls asleep on my chest, I think that I can't imagine having gone through life without experiencing this.


Life is good.

Congratulations!!!

I used to stop in a loooong time ago and then life got busy and I've not been here in oh... at least 9 months. Surprise to me! :)

And looking at the photo I remember perfectly the feeling and the baby scent that goes along with it.
