Welcome to our World!

Our family, our life - we welcome you!

So here I am...wow how life has changed. I remember when I used to be the one who had to ask someone to drive me to the mall, whose mother was worried constantly, who was trying to get A's in school and bring home the great report card to my parents. I remember graduating from elementary school - and then high school, and college ... twice.

I remember my first boyfriend, my first kiss, my first trip on an airplane. There was a time I fit into a size 2 - when my feet were a size 6.

Wow. Life has just come at me fast. Now at 28 years old, I sit here and sometimes - it seems so surreal. I have a husband. I always dreamt as a little girl - what would it be like to be married? And now ... I have my baby boy. I always thought I'd be a mother, but it was only in my dreams - nothing that I ever thought I'd achieve, and I'm so proud.

Ali and I met in 1998 and have been together since 2000...here we are in our prime, our first year together...

Aren't we cute? Then we decided to get married - how cool that was (literally, 40 degree weather and 40 MPH winds - my poor bridesmaids were in sleeveless dresses!)

Then we decided to have a baby - our beautiful boy...first we saw him like this...

And then...he was born...on October 18, 2007 at 5:47 p.m. weighing in at a holy cow amount of 8 lbs 5 oz, 20.5 inches long, via emergency c-section. He's beautiful. Here's his first picture:

Now he's 6 months old ... and I'm just now starting a blog! Wow...life has changed. Gone are the days of mall shopping and bar hopping...here are the days of diaper changes, sleepless nights...and a brand new love I never knew existed. We're finally starting to think about having another baby - when God blesses us, is when the time is right, and we'll be so happy and excited. I'm so excited to share my life, our lives that is, and the way life has changed - and has become...a whole new world.

Welcome to ours!


Wow you guys are so darn cute!!
