have i told you lately.....

"Have I told you lately that I love you,
Have I told you there's no one else above you.
You fill my heart with gladness, you take away all my sadness.
You ease my troubles, that's what you do." 

I sing this to Finn all the time. Having a child changes a person so completely, it's amazing. It's like your purpose here is different now. I just look at him in complete awe that I helped create this tiny human being. I can't wait to get through my day at work so I can get home and hold him and cuddle him. He's what I have to look forward too now at the end of the day so my work day doesn't seem so bad anymore. It's tough with Dan at work now all evening, it's like being a single parent. I give single parents a TON of credit b/c it is tough!!! We've kindof gotten into a routine I guess. Finn is sleeping all night so that's is a blessing. Speaking of sleeping, that's where I need to be right now. I'll write more later..........

my $4 bargain

I thought I'd share my $4 bargain with you. I went to the Salvation Army store yesterday that is so close to our house I could walk there if I had to, to check it out. I found a few things for Finny there. I got 3 shirts, which one of them is Ralph Lauren, and got 2 pairs of shorts for him for just 4 bucks! I LOVE any kind of consignment store and we have 2 here in Jacksonville that are great. We have a Once Upon A Child and a store called Round Robin, which is where little Finny will be getting most of his things. I don't see the point in buying new when the used are practically new themselves. They grow so fast! Oh, just thought I'd tell you too that Finn slept 10 hours straight last night. I was up before him this morning waiting on him to wake up!

my rugged little boy!

Wow! It's been awhile since I've posted anything. Dan had his surgery on Tuesday and seems to be recovering okay. He's a man(if you know what I mean), but he's doing good. I go back to work on Monday. I'm not dreading it surprisingly, it helps knowing that Dan will be watching him. I don't have any call the 1st week I'm back, so that is a HUGE relief. I'm not sure how it's going to be with Dan having him all to himself, but I do have confidence in him. Pray for him! and me!
Anyways, it's been super cold here, it was down in the teens last night. I've lived here over 7 yrs now and it's never been that cold before. I definately prefer the warm weather of FL. :)
Here's a few new pics of a really cute outfit my friend Mashwanda bought him the other day at Old Navy. I can't believe my little man will be 2 months old this weekend! He's growing like a weed and he's changing everyday. I think he's finally starting to favor me a little bit, what do you think? I love to just hold him while he's snuggling up on my chest(his fav position). Nothing could get any better.
