Lately I have been thinking a lot about time and how fast it goes...Time always seems to just get the best of me...

*I have not been blogging lately because I have been working about 30 hours a week for my job

*Can't believe its almost been a year since little Addison Rose came into the world

*About 10 months ago I was wanting sleep so bad when our little girl was up for 2 months from 11pm-7am every night... Now I can't even remember that period of time...

*This year my new years resolution was to be intentional about the time I spend with friends and family...trying to get around and see everyone and spend quality time with them

*I just turned 29 about a week ago...WOW...time sure has gone by...I'm no longer just me..I'm a wife and a mommy

*When my sweet angel wakes up at 2am in the morning in pain with teething, we snuggle..I cherish these times as they will come and go quickly

*Each night I only get about an hour or two with my hubby before I go to bed.. I miss spending more time with him...

*Zumba---I'm trying to lose this baby weight and it is taking a LONG time...I got this wonderful Zumba game from Ben and has been helping me alot.. I don't have to leave home for it.

*I'm getting excited for the time I will spend with my cousins and their children this summer...parks, sprinklers, water parks, picnics...I love spring and summer for this reason... I cherish this time

*My brother spent the night during Superbowl weekend (his kiddos were sick and wifey was taking care of them). I cherish these moments with my brother and seeing him grow into a wonderful man.

*Excited for Tuesday to hang out with Amanda, Ainsley and Thaddeus...Enjoy seeing them so much

*Spending time with Addy's favorite buddies--Marsh, Brady and Logan on Monday and of course some of my favorite cousins too

*Had a wonderful celebration in Owatonna for my birthday this month..Katie and David went all out.. wonderful food,great cupcakes, my favorite ice cream cake, fellowship and of course I got to see my sweet niece. Mom and Dad Paxson were there also... I got some of the most awesome gifts.. one of my favorites being these awesome red shoes mom and dad Paxson bought me...SUPER CUTE!

*Enjoyed a fun birthday lunch with my cousin Emily on my birthday...enjoy many laughs with her. She also made me a special Caribou Drink...specially made by her!!

*Had my annual Father/Daughter Birthday dinner out at Texas Roadhouse. Such a blessing to have the dad that I do. I so enjoy spending time with him.

*Recently went on a fun shopping trip with my mom and spent her birthday with her and Addy....Love being with my momma

*I'm doing a 30 day challenge this month called 30 days of Encouragement for Your Husband--I can tend to me a little negative/nagging and hi-strung, so I thought this might just be good for me...I am so thankful for my husband and him allowing me to be home with our sweet daughter...He will NEVER know how much it means to me.

*Enjoys watching our sweet daughter play all day long... I don't get a lot of me time because she is so active and doesn't like to nap as much but I sure do love getting to see her develop into this wonderful little girl..especially seeing her standing up in her crib when I come get her in the morning.

*I am planning Addy's first Birthday party, Ben is taking off that whole week..for celebration and MARCH MADDNESS!!! March Maddness is like a holiday in our family...Last year we watched it from the hospital room since Addy was just born...WOW...I can't believe that was just last year...

*So thankful for the nights my hubby brings dinner home so I can just rest and don't have to cook...Sometimes the time gets away from me each day and a night just to spend with him and Addy without the worry of preparing for dinner is nice.

*Can't believe I have been with my hubby for almost 12 years...(married 5 years)
I love him dearly

*Speaking of time, duty calls...Addy is waking up from her nap and my quiet time is up.

Time is so precious.. handle it with care...When Addy was first born, life felt so hard, I didn't think those days of crying each night would ever be over but its 10 months later and I miss those sweet days although stressful...
