Looking back <---

It happened again, I cried. I looked back into the back seat as I was driving, looked at Sam sitting in his seat and welled up and the tears started to fall. I do this all the time. I just can not believe I have a child, my life, sitting in my backseat. All of the years I would drive around and wish I had a car seat in my car, one that would have a baby in it, and my wish came true. It still catches me by surprise and takes my breath away.
How lucky am I to be his mommy?!? I have no words to describe the complete and utter love that fills my heart when I look at this lil' man. ohhhh here come the tears again :) lol

Happy New Year!! I cannot for the life of me believe another year has passed, time is flying wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to fast. Our lil' man is getting bigger by the day and he is so funny and incredibly cute. He makes me happy. This morning we are sitting on the couch and he's writing in his pad and talking out loud, "I love you mommy, love Sam" my heart melted right there!! How in the world did we get so lucky to have him be our son? How?
This year was great, started off spending time with Brynn on New Year's Eve last year and then Feb came and I got to meet a very good friend in person when she came and stayed with us for a few days. March was brought 2 beautiful blessings, our twin nephews Alex and Ben. April we had a long weekend trip with Brynn. May we got to go see Brynn leave for her prom, which was sooooo special to us! We also went to Florida for 2 weeks and had a blast. Sam loved it. The summer was full of swimming at the pool and bbq's. August we had a week at the beach with Brynn and her whole family!! Such a special fun time. My fav is a picture of the whole family, including us on the beach, just LOVE it!! September brought sadness for our hearts, we lost Linda. She was Kenny's dad's girlfriend of 8 yrs and we love her and will miss her very much. It also brought new life, Brynn's sister had her first baby. Baby Michael is so cute, can't wait to meet him! October was the lil man's big day, he turned 3!!! Brynn came for the party weekend. It was really awesome to have her here for his birthday. November we were off to Georgia and Florida. Our stop in Georgia let me meet another amazing friend in person. LOVE the Internet for this!:) It also gave us our 1st trip to the ER. Sam ran into a coffee table with his head and needed stiches. Ended up being steri strips and he was a Rock Star!!! Not a tear from him at the hospital. It's all healed and you can hardly see it now. Florida was beautiful and the perfect weather. My parents came with and loved it. November also introduced us to some new friends that we are hoping will be a part of our lives forever. December, COLD!! It went by very fast. Christmas was wonderful and special because Sam understood Santa. He is even getting up each morning and running outside to the living room to see if Santa left him more presents. We're working on him getting that Santa doesn't come everyday, LOL!! We had a blizzard the day after Christmas which cancelled our plans to see Brynn :( another day it must be. This stinking snow also caused us to be without power and heat for 15 hrs. brrrrrrrrr it was cooooollllldddddd! New Years Eve was home, no place I'd rather be :)
Here's hoping 2011 is filled with love, laughter, blessings, family, friends and hope.
Love to all! xoxo
