I have been blogging for three years now. Over the years I have included, two pregnancies, two births, two moves and multiple recipes.

I love blogging and I was doing more when I was staying home but now that I am a full time working mom it is a little more difficult.

I think I will always blog and if the end of the year goes as we hope I will be able to stay home and do it more. My goal for this year and my blog is to post more about things that I do and more pictures.

I use to take a ton of pictures when staying home and now I feel I have been neglecting that. To all that reads my blog thanks I really do enjoy sharing my life and experiances :)

Kimber is 1!!!

April 18, 2010 Aaron and I were blessed with little Kimber Bryce-Bailey coming into this world so tiny but with a great pair of lungs.

Kimber is now 1 years old and offically no longer a infant :( Since Kimber is the last baby for Aaron and I it is bittersweet to see her growing. She has been the most smiley baby and loves her daddy like no other. We had a family get together for her on Sunday and the theme was monkies.

We have always called her a monkey since she was born cause she looked like one lol.

I made monkey cupcakes that were fudge cake with peanut butter frosting and a special little cake for Kimkim that was starwberry cake with cream cheese filling and fudge icing. She of course she loved having her own little cake.

She got a lot of much needed clothes a little walker. She is on the verge of taking steps on her own and this will help with the process.

Thanks to everyone that came and for those who couldn’t we know you were there in spirit 

Prayers for Aaron

As many of you may or may not know my husband Aaron was in the Army and deployed to Iraq for a long and drawn out 15 months. Like many soldiers he received injuries due to combat and Aaron has been going to the VA for medical reasons. On Friday, we drove up to Amarillo, Tx which is about 2 hours from our home town to the VA hospital to get a Echo-gram and CT scan. The CT scan was for his TBI (traumatic bran injury) and the Echo-gram was for his hard condition he has had since after a year in service. He has bad chest pains that can bring him to his knees as if someone is stabbing him in the middle of his chest. They were never able to diagnose what it was exactly before he was discharged from the Army and the doctors at the VA are now trying to figure out what it is. During the Echo-gram the tech looked concerned and said they they can now see what is wrong now that he was probing the problem and he also focused on his liver. Well of course, the tech can't tell you any diagnosis because the cardiologist has to make that decision. However, we are a little concern about the findings and wont know what they truly found out for about two weeks. Please pray for Aaron and our family as we wait and place calmness all around Aaron. He is being treated for other things as well which I may post after we have more information. God has us go through everything for a reason and we are truly believing in that and relying on Him to show us His plan.
