Wow, I completely forgot that I started this blog when we first moved to Colorado two years ago. It’s crazy how much has changed in such a short period! We still love it here, but in two short years we went from DINKs (Dual Income No Kids – I’m stealing this acronym from our friends because I think it’s fun) to DIOK soon to be OIOK 😀 and me a SAHM (ok, I’m getting a little carried away with acronyms I think!).
Anyway, we have officially started our little family; we welcomed our son Dylan into the world mid-day on his due date. Becoming a parent is such an amazing thing… I can’t believe how much my mindset has changed now that I’m a mom! My mom was right when she told me what changes when you become a mother. She said that you go from “I want, am, need” to “he/she wants, am, needs”… at the time I disagreed with her because I refused to believe that I was that self-motivated/self-involved, but she was right, I was. Everything is so different now; I really don’t matter anymore in comparison to the tiny life that God has blessed me with, and that’s not only ok, it’s WONDERFUL!
Well, that’s all for now. I plan to start updating this more now. Not that anyone’s actually reading this, but hey, what the heck, right? 🙂
