Baby Fever

I had thought about writing this blog back on Monday, but I never got around to it...been too busy.

But anyway... On Monday I got to meet my new adorable niece Sage for the first time, she was two weeks old exactly on that day.  She's so cute, and looks a lot like her big brother.  I love any age of kids, but babies are just amazing.  The way they just cozy up in your arms and sleep for hours is just indescribable!

I must say though...holding Sage definitely gave me Baby Fever.  I am a natural at all things "mom" and for those of you that don't know...I've wanted to be a Mom since I was 2.  So holding Sage, giving her a bottle, watching her sleep in my arms, calming her tugs on my 'uterus strings' we'll call them.  I know that it's not the right time or place for me to be having a baby yet, and I'm not one of those girls that would pull the "accidentally on purpose" pregnancy, so I will wait, but my anticipation for that right time grows more and more each day for sure!

Here are the pictures I took on Monday with her sleeping in my arms.

Well that's all for now.  Hope you guys had a nice weekend!

The Real Erika

I am being naughty, and taking a few minutes from work to write this quick blog.  It's just something I've been thinking about since last night and I needed to write it.

The last two...almost three really...years of my life have been a lot of ups and downs.  A lot of figuring out who I am, what I want do with my life, and just trying to deal with what life throws at you.  I got very lucky and have been blessed with some wonderful new friends in the last few years, and I was blessed with what was a great relationship.  However, I have been slacking in the work department.  I guess being fired from two, essentially three, jobs all within a 6 month time period can shatter anyone's confidence.

I got a job, a few months ago now, which I was very happy to start. I'm not much of a morning person, but I still like going to work every morning. And I just got a second job last night, I start training today.  I hope it all goes well!

I think some people don't understand working two jobs, but I feel like that's who I am.  I worked two jobs while going to school all throughout my Bachelor's.  It's busy and sometimes a bit stressful, and tiring, but I like it.  And I am actually very glad to be going back to that life.  I like being busy, I like not living pay check to pay check (hopefully I won't have to...fingers crossed).

The downfall of being so busy is that I don't get to see my friend's as much.  So I hope all of you understand, but I promise to make as much time for you as possible.  I have enjoyed spending time with everyone as much as I wanted, but I do prefer to be busy, have things going on, feeling productive.  I'm such an independent girl, and I haven't felt very independent recently.

So...I hope you all understand when I have to work instead of coming out, but I hope that at least some of the time you can come visit me at work.  And I am very glad to be feeling like myself again!

Hope you all have a great rest of the week!

Baby Sage

I decided the other day that I hadn't blogged in a while.  I've been so busy I haven't sat down to write out any of my thoughts.  But today I received some very exciting news and I decided I simply HAD to blog about it.

My very dear friend Anny had her second baby sometime late yesterday (not sure of the exact time) and I received a picture of my new niece, Sage Vi, this morning as I was walking to the car to go to work.  This made my day and I was instantly in an amazing mood.

I love children and can honestly not wait for the day I find out that I'm pregnant and I'm looking forward to the day that each of my children are born even more!  If you didn't already know...I was born to be a mom!  But in the meantime I LOVE spoiling my nieces and nephews (none of them blood related, but that doesn't matter one bit) and therefore I could not be more excited for Anny, Trevor and big brother Cole.  And of course since I'm SO excited...I had to share my excitement with you all.

So...may I present Miss Sage Vi Narron, born 2.28.11 weighing 6lbs 10oz:

Much Love to you all!  Enjoy the rest of your week <3
