I've had so much fun going back through old pics trying to decide what I was going to post in my 10 year challenge blog....great idea Holly!!! Well, its been a little over 10 years since my life changed forever. My firstborn son was welcomed into the world August of 1996. He was somewhat of a surprise but the best surprise I could have ever asked for!
Troy and I had only been married for a year and were both still going to college. We were both shocked but so happy! We had no idea what God had in store for us but we knew He wanted us to be parents! We were ready for the challenge...scared to death...but ready.
Reid has blessed my life beyond my wildest dreams. I was meant to be his mother and I am so thankful for him. I pray daily for this little bundle of joy and have really enjoyed watching him grow into a handsome little 10 year old. He brightens my life and at night when he is sleeping I sneak in there to kiss his sweet little face and pray for him...shhh! don't tell him!
Here I am in the hospital giving birth to my sweet son, Reid. And, as you can tell by the picture, Troy was sure tired from all the hard work...whatever!! HA HA This is one of my favorite pics from Reid's birth because I never even knew Troy was sleeping until I got this pic back. I thought he was rubbing my back the whole time! HA HA Boy, did I give him a hard time and still do! I can guarantee you he didn't do this at Macy's birth! : ) Oh, BTW, that nurse was horrible! Ask Ashley....
Little Reid.....awww, I rememeber this day like it was yesterday. He slept so much, loved his binky and love to be all wrapped up in blankets! If he wasn't wrapped as tight as could be he wouldn't sleep. He was the cutest little baby!
I remember people telling me to enjoy the moment because it went by to fast....I always said , yeah right. But, oh my, does time fly! I believe them now.
Now look at my 10 year old! Still cute as ever. Now he hates bedtime, doesn't like covers and sleeps on his back. I love this kid with all my heart and have loved spending the last 10 years as his mom.....can't wait for the next phase of our lives. Or, can I??? He's about to enter those tween years! YIKES!! HA Every day is an adventure!
