It's still hard to believe that I'm actually a mom. There are rough days, but when Addie smiles at me in the morning when I go to get her from her crib, or lights up when she sees her daddy walk in the door it definitely reminds me that I'm truly blessed because she's in our lives. I cry every time I hear George Strait's song "I Saw God Today" because she's such a miracle and makes me strive to always be a better person. I recently finished reading Jennifer Weiner's "Little Earthquakes" and I really liked it. It made me realize that I can't do it all, and that I have to be easier on myself. I'm really enjoying being done with college and being able to stay home with Addison and see how much she changes every day. I feel so accomplished that I was able to complete school in a field that I'm really going to LOVE working in. I've thought about grad school and maybe after we get moved to Georgia I'll get started with it. Because of Addie, I appreciate my parents more than I ever have and all the sacrifices they made for me and my siblings.
