Reflections

well its Friday the 1st of July and I think now would be as good of a time as any to reflect on the last 6 months.
January:
Well 30 was different from every other birthday so far :) As seems to be the status with my friends we all hit 30 and end up in the hospital! The day after my 30th I ended up in the hospital with Pre-eclampisa and was put on bed rest until the kiddo arrived.
February:
Mr. Connor Arrives at 11:32 PM on Sunday Feb. 13! 28 min short of Valentines day. Yes this is a good thing! I did not want a valentines baby and the wonderful doctors and nurses knew that so when it became obvious that a C-Section was needed that wheeled me in there so that the kiddo would be born before Valentines day! Got to love that!!!
The rest of the month was a blur of baby and no sleep and honestly I cant tell you another thing that happened :)
March:
UK did great in the SEC and NCAA finals I remember them being on and watching them and cheering but I cant tell you much more than that. Except Connor was in his Blue and White for every game!!! GO CATS!!
April:
Nasty weather! Gosh this is awful I sat down to write a post on reflections and I cant remember anything! ARG!!!! Well lets just say that we managed to ride out the awful weather and no one was harmed :)
May:
My first mothers day! I can not tell you how special that was. For years I never thought it would come, I was convinced that we would grow old and the only thing I would be a mom to was a dog. I had almost come to terms with it when we found out we were pregnant with Connor. We went to brunch and then to dinner at shakertown it really was a nice way to celebrate.
June:
Nick had his first fathers day and I know it was special for him, when I asked him what would you like to do for fathers day he looked at me and said you know, I never thought about it. And it was just so sweet as he realized that he was a dad and that this was a special day for him.
We also started on the great renovation of 2011 this month. We are moving the back door and this has been a bit of a project!  (For photos of the project go here) I hope we get the other projects that are on the list done this summer!!

 Now I am not a huge church goer or any thing like that but I have got to say that I am so thankful for the blessing that is my son. I have never been so in love. Nick and I had talked on occasion that we are amazed at the amount of love that we feel for the boy. You hear it ALL the time, and I always thought well duh of course you love your kids but I swear its just one of those things I see that precious boy in front of me and there is not anything that I wouldn't do for him.

His path to us or our path to him was a long a twisted one, but oh so worth it. I honestly didn't realize how much he had changed my life though until this week. My Mother passed away 6 years ago on June 27. Well on the 26th it crossed my mind and then I didn't think about it again until the 30th. Now I don't want to sound like I just up and forgot my mother because I see her every time I look at my son but he has switched my focus. Instead of spending the month of June in a deep depression as has been the case for the last 5 years I just rolled on with my life. Something that I am very proud of and so thankful for!

I certainly hope that I can get to a blog a week in the future maybe it will help my memory ;)
until next time :)

Hey I just wanted to say your son is so cute! Also, I know what you mean about a date losing it's hold on you...my best friend killed himself October 13, 2000. When I met Brandon, his birthday was, you guessed it, October 13th. So now that day can be a happy one as well. -- Sarah Shannon Goodin

Oh Pinterest!!!! and other updates

I must say that I am a total addict!!! I am on this page almost as much if not more so than face book!! If you want to visit my page here it is :) http://pinterest.com/jsmcclure/ So far I have done two of my many pinned projects both to be blogged about soon depending on how long the kiddo sleeps! Which brings me to the lack in blogging. The child won’t sleep!!! I take that back, he sleeps like a jewel at night. But there are no naps during the day...none. A problem I am trying to remedy. Now that he is crawling, pulling up and even cruising he gets tired more easily making a nap possible. The down side is that there is about a half hour of crying this precedes the nap.
We had a photo shoot last Saturday at the portrait shop. If you are in the Lexington Area I would highly recommend them. We get to view the pictures on Saturday and I cannot wait!!! I really need to blog more… I want to tell you all everything but I don’t want a huge novel-esc post.
Let’s just say momma will try to do bett…
