It's Been Awhile...

I have not blogged in so long I feel like I was reading through the blog of a stranger as I combed through the entries. I don't think I will delete them because those are the words I am made of. They were about who I once was. Since the posts I did three of the best things I've ever done in my life: I got married to Ryan. He is the love of my life. We were friends for years before we dated and then got married. He remains my best friend. He still hides in places around the house to jump out and scare the bejeezus out of me. Yeah, think he will do that until I die. Ryan is a firefighter. I'm so proud of him for all he does for our family. I always loved Ryan; I realized I was in love with him...then he realized he loved me...and we got married. Country music reminds me of him. We both love musicals and we both enjoy being active. He's my lobster. (Friends reference for you Friends watching people.)
I became a mother. ohmygoodness I'm a mother. Someone is my child! Eek! That still terrifies me. I just told Ryan the other day, "It is so terrifying to think that we are responsible for raising a child in this world who is kind, fair, and loving." Our sweet son is about to turn 2. His name is Jude and he's all kinds of awesome, curious, mischief-making fun. He's so active there are times he is a blur. I cannot keep up with the Jude Flash. He's trying to climb furniture...he tries to say thank you as he rips things from my hands that are HIS. ALWAYS his. Every piece of our home down to the roll of toilet paper is his. He loves so much right now I want to record the memories somewhere, so this blog will be something like that. A virtual scrapbook, if you will. Jude loves music, Elmo, Barney, (God, help me) playing basketball, riding in his fire twuck. (truck) and he loves coloring. He calls them "colors." He frequently disappears and can be found reading in his room..."reading." He is a little flirt with the ladies. Scares me half to death. I refuse to think of teenage years.
I will have to save the 3rd thing for a later post. :)
