Morning light

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013


This morning Connor and I decided to be lazy and lay in bed all morning. I know I’ve said this before but I feel like a entirely different person since he was born. I feel like I finally know what I am meant to do. Being Connor’s mommy is the best job in the whole world.




New year, new me

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

Happy 2013! I have never been good at keeping resolutions. I normally end up breaking them as soon as I set them. But, I do want to take an inventory of my life and set some goals for this year. Mainly, my relationship with God, my new little family, my church work and my surroundings.


Becoming a mom has completely turned my world upside down. Now I have a little boy to focus on rather than myself and I feel like I am finally doing what God created me to do. I never really decided on a career and I always wondered what God had in store for me. Now I know, I was created to be a wife and mom.


This first year of his life is important and I want to make sure I instill good, Godly things in his life. I have to also make sure I don’t forget about my wife hat. I’ve never really understood the Proverbs 31 wife stuff until now. This year is going to be about seeking Him to find out exactly how to find the balance between wife, mom, homemaker, praise and worship leader, and so on.


I also have a new vision for this little space of mine. I am going to start doing the meal plans again and of course post TONS of Connor photos. I’m also going to pray and seek God about what God will have for this space. If I can use it for His glory also that is an added bonus!

Merry Christmas

We had a nice, relaxing Christmas this year. I’m pretty sure I cooked all day and loved every minute of it!

Welcome to the world Connor!

Hello everyone! Let’s play catch up…

Mr. Connor Miles was born on November 8 at 2:41am. I was scheduled to have a c-section on the 12th but the stubborn little boy decided he was going to show me that I can schedule all I want, but he’s going to do what he wanted to do and come a couple of days early. He was 7 lbs 12 oz and 19.25 in long.

We are so in love with this awesome little boy. This has been the most exhausting but awesome 4 weeks and I am so excited to watch my little boy grow. I thank God every day for blessing me with the most amazing gift ever.

A letter to my baby boy

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

Dear sweet baby boy,

We honestly cannot wait to meet you! You are at 30 weeks now and growing quickly. We had an ultrasound the other day and got to see your adorable little face and fell in love. Your photo is now the first thing I see when I pick up my phone and it makes me smile ever time. You are 4 pounds now and they tell me you could get to 8 pounds if you stay in for the whole time you are supposed to. While I really want to see you soon, you can stay in as long as you need to be healthy. You are rolling around like crazy, and I’m pretty sure you are using my bladder as a trampoline and my ribs as a punching bag. It was cute for awhile. You have a beautiful name but we are being ornery and not telling anyone until you make your grand arrival. It’s just more fun for us that way.

Your daddy is already planning outings to the shooting range for you guys. I guess I’m going to have to find tiny ear and eye protection and maybe an all terrain stroller for you. I’m pretty sure you already have him wrapped around your finger even though you haven’t even met yet.

You start moving every time I sing on stage. It makes me smile and then I forget my words, but that’s ok. I am going to miss it when you’re not in there.

Keep growing strong and healthy, baby boy.
