Price is TWO!!

Two years ago today I was at LMC begging for an epideral wondering how my life was about to change.
Would I be a good mother? Was I even READY to be a mother? Who would Price look like? Would he love me? Would he know how much I loved him? How would I know what he needs!?!
I asked myself millions of questions like these everyday from the time I found out I was pregnant until delivery.
Once he was born, I just knew everything would be okay. Just looking at him, I knew the Lord knew exactly what he was doing and I had no more doubts.
Price was such a blessing to me and at the time I didn't even realize how much you could love someone so small.
It's hard to believe my baby is now 2. Two isn't a baby anymore, it's a toddler. He is growing up so fast. I remember I used to say, "I can't wait until he can sit" I feel like I wished his little life away instead of enjoying each second.
Price is so smart now and can say and do so many things. My favorite thing he says is when he tells me he's "mama's boy"!! Yes, Price - You are! And I hope it always stays that way!! :)

Happy Birthday, Price!! You are my little man and I love you to the moon and back!!

Birthday Bash!

Price turns 2 on the 30th of July so we had his birthday party this past Saturday at Saluda Shoals splash park. It rained a little before the party, just enough to cool everything down so it was perfect for his party.
I think everyone had a great time, especially the birthday boy! It's so hard to believe that Price will be 2 years old on Wednesday.

Oh, What a week.....

There are so many things I should be catching up on right now but the only thing I want to do is update my blog and catch up on everyone elses blog! Forget the laundry, dishes, vacuuming, making my bed.......the list goes on.......

Anyway, the reason I am so behind on these chores would be because Sunday night I got a fever of 101.7. When I woke up at 5am on Monday it had risen to 103.8 degrees. Let me just tell you,if you've never experienced that high of a temp........well, you don't want too - I promise!! I was sure I was dying....I just kept praying "Lord, please don't take me from my boys.......they need their mama!!"

Josh called his mother and she came over here with Taylor to watch the babies while Josh drove me to the doctor. Turns out it was mastitis. How could something so minor make you so incredibly sick?? I was down and out. I couldn't hardly lift my head. Well while my MIL was watching Price, she informed me that he was throwing up and had a stomach bug. I was too sick to worry about it, luckily she took care of him the rest of the day. (By the next day my MIL, Taylor and my SIL also had the stomach bug!) My mother came that afternoon and spent the night and then stayed with me Tuesday. Tuesday afternoon I felt much better so I sent my mom home. Tuesday night I get the stomach bug and I had to call my step mom to get my children on Wednesday because I couldn't take care of them. Today I feel much better but called to check on my mom and guess what?? Yes, she has it too!!
I guess since last week was so great something was bound to go wrong!!
Sorry to all those who were coming over to visit or bring dinner......better I canceled then you get sick too!! :)

Thanks to everyone who helped us out this week and sorry you all got sick. So far Sandi, my step-mom, doesn't have it but it's bound to get her too!!

I am so blessed to have so much help around me. I can't imagine doing this without the help of my family.

Twice Blessed

I often wondered if it was possible for my life to get any better...but Saturday the Lord blessed me once again. Owen is perfect! He is so precious and makes our family so much more complete. Price is doing very well with him. He tries to help with him occasionally but mostly just ignores him right now. This week Josh is home with me to entertain Price so hopefully next week Price will be okay with sharing me.
Owen is perfect during the day but doesn't like to sleep much at night. Hopefully we can all overcome that! Thanks to everyeone for the calls, dinners, visits, cards, and especially the prayers. Keep the prayers coming. We can feel them at work.
Here are a few pics for you to enjoy until I have more time to write. Owen is crying and Josh is giving me the "evil eye"!!

Sweet Baby Owen!
