A Boy and his Bear

My what a year it has been!  My baby boy is now 1 and has grown so much!  He went from being 7 lbs 7 oz and 19 inches to 27 lbs 5 oz and 31 inches.  He has always been an angel baby and that hasn't changed one bit.  He is still a great sleeper and the most content baby ever.  I'm so incredibly lucky to be his mommy.

Family through the years

I LOVE family pictures.  Because I'm always either chasing after a child or behind the camera, I have very few pictures with all of us.  So I make a point of getting pictures done about every 6 months.  Our kids change so fast that I want to be able to freeze time, even if just in a picture.  So here are our family pictures over the last 3 years.  :)

Anxiety Update

Over the couple days, my anxiety has taken a sharp turn down.  I haven't felt it for more than a couple seconds a day.  I seriously can't believe it.  I don't know if I was stressing out over Joey turning 1, or just all of the sadness that surrounds that day since his birth mother passed away.  I don't know if it is my change in diet.  I've only been allowing gluten for one meal or treat a day, instead of all day long.  And I've noticed any time I have sugar, that is when my anxiety creeps in so I've been avoiding any processed sugars too.  I'm hoping I can fix this through diet and leave any of those pills alone!  But I'm really happy to feel like myself again.  My house is the cleanest it has been in months.  And I'm laughing and running around with the kids again.  It's seriously a great feeling.  Even with all this yucky rain here, I'm feeling sunshiny.  :)
