Big Changes

It's been fairly crazy around these parts. Mostly, because I GOT A JOB. I put myself out there, embraced the fear, and I'm pushing through in my new venture: real estate. I'm currently an Office & Marketing manager for a local agent; and I'm currently working on my license so I can also be a broker.

The other big news is that my sweet baby boy turned 1 a few weeks ago. I can't believe it. He's such a blessing and is handling my transition beautifully. It doesn't hurt that my parents are the ones watching him while I'm at work, they just adore him.

2 months ago, I never would've thought I'd already be on my way to a new career path. The timing couldn't have been much more perfect. Sometimes God works in mysterious ways. When one door closes, another opens. Absolutely.

11 Months

On the 21st of December, Aiden turned 11-months-old. That means he'll be an infant for only a few more weeks. HOLD MEEEEE. I straight-up sobbed in the shower the other day just thinking about how fast it has gone, and how big my sweet baby boy is.

He is movin' and groovin' and climbin' and standin'. He pulls himself up on just about everything he can, and he is so curious about everything; particularly, what other people are eating. It's pretty hilarious that if I'm eating something, I now have TWO sets of eyes staring at me: Parker, and now Aiden! He now crawls over to me, and is all, "gimme some of that, Mommy."

Aiden experienced his first Christmas season, and it was pretty awesome. It's true what they say, that once you become a parent, Christmas is suddenly magical again.

I finally got a low-light lens that I've been wanting for years, and just in time to take these pictures during the Holiday season. I'm having fun learning, not to mention that I've got some pretty cute subjects to practice on.

This little guy is giving us a run for our money, I'll tell ya. Just changing his diaper can be a 10-minute wrestling match. But, man. It's so much fun. When we go into his room in the morning, 9 times out of 10, he's standing there waiting for us; but 10 times out of 10, he's got the biggest grin on his face, and he starts dancing with excitement. He's so happy to see us, and it just makes the start of our day that much better.

Life is so sweet with him in it. My heart never knew love like this before. It's just amazing.
