Wow, Ok, so I have been on a huge blogging hiatus! The longer I went without blogging, the more and more daunting the task became! To be honest, I wasn't sure I would ever return to the blogging world. Mia is just so big and I really don't have that much time anymore. But today I was reading other people's blogs (which I do often)and I started reading some of my own old posts. I really think it is neat to be able to look back and read them! So I decided to start again. I thought that even if no one else reads the blog, I will! It is almost like a journal!
So much has happened I don't even know where to start. We have had lots of holidays since October! I was so strict on Mia's schedule but I remember on Christmas Day- she didn't get her afternoon nap (God forbid) and she lived! That is when I thought, "ok, I can probably chill out". Since then, I have still kept her on a schedule but it is not near as strict. Now, if she doesn't seem tired- she doesn't HAVE to take a nap. That was a big step for me!
Mia turned 1 and had such a great birthday! Our family and friends came to our house and she had so much fun. She dove right into her cake! It took a little convincing for me to just let her have a regular, non organic, sugar filled cake. But her dad was right, it is good for her sometimes. : )
She is walking now. She is still wobbly and still crawls when she wants to get somewhere fast. Her new thing is to take your finger and take you where ever she wants to go. It is so cute. Soon I think she will say, "come on!".
Everyday I look at my life and am amazed at how blessed I am. I have a great husband who is an amazing Dad. I get to stay home with my baby and even work some from home! I have everything I have ever wanted and never deserved! Thank you Jesus.
Loving that cake!
