1 Year Ago Today…

1 year ago today, I was 34 weeks pregnant. 1 year ago today, I woke up excited it was my first day of maternity leave. 1 year ago today I had lots to do before baby girls shower the coming up weekend. 1 year ago today, I couldn’t figure out why it felt like I kept peeing my pants (sorry tmi). 1 year ago today, I drove myself to labor and delivery because my mother wouldn’t let me run errands with my water broken. 1 year ago today, I ran laps around the labor and delivery floor at South Sac Kaiser trying to make my contractions start. 1 year ago today, I was once again hooked up to Pitocin because I wouldn’t dilate past 3cm. 1 year ago today, I watched my husband beg me to get an epidural but I refused because I was going to do it this time! 1 year ago today, instead of my labor room being a party like the other two times it became chaotic and within minutes I was rushed to ER. 1 year ago today; Adam, myself, and every other family member and friend who was present were scared shitless. 1 year ago today, there was blood loss and tears shed. 1 year ago today, Adam almost fainted twice. BUT 1 year ago today, angels in Heaven were watching over us. 1 year ago today, our hearts were (and still are) filled with more love then words can ever explain. 1 year ago today, the Lord reached down and blessed our family. 1 year ago today, our family was completed (85% sure of that one). 1 year ago today, our baby girl; Taylor Jordan came to be!

Private Photo Shoot

It seems every time I go to upload pictures from my camera there are WAY more on there then what I took.  I’ve come to the conclusion that I really need to stop leaving it out for the kids to get a hold of.  Here are a few of the recent pictures Mason took of himself.  He cracks me up!!

Closet Eater

I went to hang up clothes this morning and this is what I found…

I thought I fixed this problem last year when I found a half eaten jar of peanut butter along with applesauce in the boys closet. I guess not. I swear on my life I feed these kids!!

If you read my blog about Mason’s first field trip to Fairytale Town then you would know how I feel about them. But this field trip was different, I just couldn't miss it! And I know what your thinking, but it had nothing to do with it being at a firehouse with hot fireman walking all around. My decision to go was completely based on the fact it was Cody’s first field trip and he LOVES fire trucks. I swear!!

I was very surprised how well-behaved all the kids were during their trip. Cody's class is made up of 3 year olds, so for them to sit and listen about fire detectors I was amazed. It was pretty cute when they were asked what you should do if you hear a fire detector go off and a few of them put their hands over their ears. I'm proud to tell you the fire detectors in our home are not used to signal us that dinner is ready.

Even though I went on the same field trip last year with mason, it was fun to watch how excited Cody got. He had a blast climbing up into the fire engine and talking to all the firemen. The whole time he couldn't stop telling them he was going to be a fireman for Halloween. I'm going to bet he'll actually be a fireman when he grows up.

Thank you Station 71 for putting a smile on my sons face for the day. And I suppose mine too. ;)
