Happiness is a Journey, not a destination.

December 29, 2007

Well, I've been inspired by certain blogging friends to get a blog of my own!!! In it you will read our Story....about the lives and times of myself, my Halloween obsessed Husband, and our 3 children. A bit about us....I'm a full time working Mom, both inside and outside the home, and am very lucky to have a husband who believes that parenting is a 50/50 job. I work night shift in the NICU of a local hospital, and I love my job, but not some of the crap that goes along with it. We have a 9 year old son, Kyle, a 5 year old son, Alec, and our baby girl Talia is 9 months on the 1st of January. Our kids are all smart and beautiful (of course, we're biased, but we're right). It's been an interesting year, with the arrival of our princess, sending our younger son off to kindergarten, and all the changes with my church callings and my husband's job. Having 3 months off for maternity leave was a big highlight, and I'm sad I'll never be able to take maternity leave again.

My blogging goals for the year....

Posting at least 5 times a week.
Scrapbooking at least 1 layout a week (taking a page from my good friend Mindy's blog)...and in order to do this I have to organize my scrapbook room and supplies. (It's on my list, first of next week).

My work pet peeve of the day....we do not, I repeat, do not deliver premature babies in a normal labor and delivery room. We need to be in the OR, near our NICU resuscitation room, so that we can have all the necessary supplies at the ready and so that we don't have to traumatize a family while we put a breathing tube in, etc. (it put the poor dad into a pretty good panic attack, poor guy). Hopefully that MD will learn this for the next time.

My happy baby moment of the day....It really amazes me the progress my baby is making. For a baby who has always hated being on her tummy, now that she realizes that she can roll to get to whatever she can't reach or rock to, she is rolling all over the place, and trying to army crawl on her tummy too. It amazes me the motivation that movement brings. After all, she first rolled over months ago, but refused to do it for so long....
