My First Blog

Wow! It has been a looooong time since I've had a blog. I had one I kept up with almost daily when I was in high school but once I got to college, I kinda stopped blogging altogether. I've tried a couple times to start again but life always seems to get in the way. But, I'm a new mom and want to start chronicling the journey that is motherhood on here.

Right now, I'm at work. The majority of my students are on a field trip today so the ones that are here took their vocab quiz, got their new words, and are now playing cards....shhhhh. I can't really give them any real work to do because then all my other kids will be behind and that is just a major pain. I teach Language Arts to some really crazy 7th graders. But in June I'm taking my elementary test in hopes that I can find an elementary position somewhere. I think I will enjoy that much better.

Our son's name is Gabriel Kayden. He was born on January 20th of this year. He is our pride and joy. It is so rewarding to watch him learn new things and discover the world around him. And can I just say....his little toothless smile just melts my heart. Every day with him is something brand new and I love it. He had to stay in the hospital for 7 days after he was born due to a bacterial infection but he never acted sick. It sucks because I feel like I sorta missed out on the first week of his life but I'm making up for it now. He is 14 weeks old today and has started taking 6 oz. at each feeding. He sleeps pretty well at night...sometimes all the way through but usually from around 8ish to 3ish, eats, then goes back to sleep for a couple more hours.

I love my little man! I hope I can keep up with this blog and write about my sweet boy, my wonderful husband, my hopeful job change, and just my crazy unpredicable life that I do quite enjoy!

God Bless!
