I'm so far behind...so where do I start?

I have been slacking so bad lately...I somehow managed to miss the whole month of August!!!! AHHH!! I will be catching up eventually because that has been the most important month of this year!! My baby turned ONE!! My mom came in by surprise to celebrate with us and we had so much fun. We loved the visit! Christian became one spoiled little boy once again. Mom wasn't able to stay for his Party, but she was here on his actual birthday which ROCKED!! I have so many pictures, but since this will only allow 5 at a time....It may take me awhile to get the pics posted! I do have them and plan to update soon.

This school semester has begun officially today! Rob and I are both in school this Fall. It is going to be hectic, balancing work schedules, babysitters, school schedules, family time, and time to breathe for that matter! We also are to be in our friends' Brad and Amanda's wedding in October. I'm not sure how we're going to juggle all this, but I am sure we will someway, somehow. We have been blessed that we have some family members that have been keeping Christian on a regular basis, which has been great. Thank you Mamaw Pat, Tia, Brandi, Missi, Tracey and Nana!

I have a feeling this blog is going to fall behind, but I only have til MAY before I graduate. I'll be so thankful. Here's to 8 more months of school!

Here are some pics from the day we went to Holiday World. Mom went with us including all the rest of my family :) More pics to come soon....(I hope!)
Isaac, Christian and Nate....COUSINS!!

Daddy's year in review

Hello to all who read this thing. I am today's special guest blogger. DA DA!!! As my little monster Christian calls me. I am Rob, Autumn's husband to be and Christian's daddy. Today is August 5th. Christian's first birthday!!!! I have always heard older people say kids grow up quick. I am a true believer of that now. It is 1:05pm right now. This time last year I was pacing the halls of the hospital just waiting his arrival. I was really trying to sike myself into not crying when he came at 8:49pm, but I cried! It was the single most important and exciting day of my life. I have watched him grow from sleeping in a bassinet to sleeping in his crib, from struggling to rollover to pulling up on everything. He is truly a blessing to Autumn and myself. I can honestly declare myself the happiest man on earth, to have such a wonderful woman and child in my life. I am looking forward to his big party this weekend. I can't wait to see him destroy his cake!! My life has changed so much in just a year. I am very excited to see my little man grow. I want to thank the people who created this blog for making this possible today, and letting me share my love for my baby boy with all who read this. Happy Birthday Christian!!! Daddy loves you and mommy!!!!
