A Year and a Half of FB Posts...

I have been looking for a way to download all of my Facebook status updates from 2009 and I FINALLY found it! The app is called "Status History"! The reasoning behind this is because I have done a HORRIBLE job of keeping a written journal and because it's so easy to just update my status in Facebook, I temporarily used it as my "journal" for this year. A lot of Caleb's 1st's were posted within minutes of them happening, knowing that someday I would appreciate Facebook for more than just a little way to tell the world what was going on in my life at that exact moment, but a way for me to look back and remember the "little" big things that happened during the 1st year of Caleb's life! So, just to clarify, I will NOT be hurt if no one reads this post all the way through. Somehow, I have managed to do 655 posts since August 4th, 2008, scary! I'm doing this in hopes that someday this post will make it in to Caleb's scrapbook! Here we go, don't be afraid to skip over this post if you don't care to read it, my feelings will NOT be hurt at all!! It's for memories sake only!

Fri October 23, 2009, 12:38 pm: "deny yourself" - This does not refer to denying something to ourselves but to denying ourselves the right o control life. Self-denial means saying "no" to selfish desires and ambitions so that we may say "yes" to Jesus.

Wed November 11, 2009, 7:15 am: A teething child is not only painful for him, but for momma too! Mix that with what seems to be the beginning of a migraine and I think we've got a new definition for "a hard day" on our hands...I would covet any and all prayers!

Fri November 27, 2009, 11:54 pm: Driving home from New Moon and the smell of a skunk overwhelmed our car. Listening to Amy Grant's "Breath of Heaven", Aaron decides to start a commentary about how the skunks made a treaty with the beavers about not spraying the humans. I wonder if Bella would have chosen a beaver or a skunk? Can you guess who I would have labeled each of them?

Tue December 1, 2009, 9:58 am: my child was only asleep for 30 minutes before all the fire alarms in the house, including the one in Caleb's room, went off for the monthly test. I am beyond frustrated right now and think it might be a good idea for me to step out in the cold air and take a few deep breaths considering a few very not so nice words just went through my head...
Tue December 1, 2009, 2:38 pm: My baby just stood on his own for 3 seconds!!!
Wed December 2, 2009, 7:35 am: I CANNOT believe it! Woke up and opened the blinds to the patio and our entire couryard is covered in a layer of S-N-OW!!!!

Fri December 4, 2009, 1:59 pm: enjoyed hearing Sue Bohlin talk about "The Wonder of Boys" this morning at Watermark! I think I will need to listen to this talk monthly for the rest of my life! Starting to understand a little bit more how I can help encourage Aaron as a daddy, and how I can also help Caleb grow into a Godly boy and man someday! Thank you Lord for using one of your own to be an encouragement to an often confused momma!!
Fri December 4, 2009, 7:02 pm: my baby is 11 months old today!!!! Happy 11 month birthday Caleb! Momma love you and had a great time on our date tonight shopping for your birthday decorations!!!
Sat December 5, 2009, 7:38 am: Going on a breakfast date with Caleb! I have LOVED these past few days with him all to myself! NO offense daddy, we're DEFINITELY ready for you to be home! See you tonight!
Sat December 5, 2009, 8:38 am: Christmas Wish on KLTY makes me cry like a baby everytime!!!
Sat December 5, 2009, 6:53 pm: it's official....Caleb is done with the bottle for GOOD!! I can't hardly believe it but alas, the time has come! He absolutely LOVES milk! Oh, and he also is semi-eating with a fork!! Big weekend for my baby!!
Sat December 5, 2009, 9:20 pm: There's a first time for everything...
Mon December 7, 2009, 1:18 pm: It's 2:15pm and I just realized that all I've had today is two cups of wonder my tummy is yelling at me!
Wed December 9, 2009, 11:54 am: I have a confession...I tevo'd an episode of Mr. Roger's Neighborhood for myself, not Caleb. I wanted to see what it was like to watch one of my favorite childhood shows as an adult! Who knew in makebelieve land that Mr. Rogers himself did all the voices of the puppets!!! I feel a little let down. I think I'm done tevo'ing old favorites, I want my memories to be the same as they've always been!!
Thu December 10, 2009, 9:43 am: wondering if I'll be getting all my Christmas Orders done by Monday...
Thu December 10, 2009, 10:27 pm: Caleb has a runny nose and teary eye and now Aaron isn't feeling great either, YUK!! Praying I don't get whatever they have!!
Sun December 13, 2009, 6:25 pm: Is having an "it's not fair" moment right now...brings back all the memories of my mom telling me, "honey, life isn't fair".
Tue December 15, 2009, 1:13 am: going to bed...F I N A L L Y! Good news...although both my boys are sick, neither are contagious, and only Aaron had to be on meds for a sinus infection. Poor Caleb, only has a cold but can't breathe through his nose worth a lick! Hoping the Children's Zyrtec continues to work and that everyone is better for our roadtrip to STL Sunday!
Tue December 15, 2009, 7:34 pm: Current guilty pleasure...the "Tha Sing-Off", a handful of chocolate chips and some hot tea!
Tue December 15, 2009, 7:36 pm: Current guilty pleasure..."The Sing-Off" and a handful of chocolate chips...
Tue December 15, 2009, 10:24 pm: Watching a rerun of the Friends series finale always makes me cry, and then laugh, and then cry some more!
Thu December 17, 2009, 8:06 am: My child sounds like a loud purring kitten...not good!
Thu December 17, 2009, 8:08 am: Why is it that an hour in the middle of the night seems like forever, but an hour during the day goes by at light speed?!?
Fri December 18, 2009, 11:10 am: is feeling sickly. Hoping I'm not getting what my two boys have, especially since we're driving to STL on Sunday!
Fri December 18, 2009, 11:42 pm: I have WAY to much to do in the next 36 hours...delivering all of my Christmas orders, cleaning the house, laundry, packing for two, taking the van to the shop for the "check engine" light that decided to come on TODAY, a birthday party, finish up Christmas shopping, write up packing list so that I at least feel a little more organized than I really am, and SLEEP somewhere in there. I feel like I'm missing something!
Tue December 22, 2009, 7:43 pm: Quote of the Day: "Those babies are special!" my Dad referring to the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies Aaron made for dessert tonight...
Wed December 23, 2009, 10:01 am: Quote of the Day: Again, my Dad, "Its anything you want day!" in reference to the glorious food shopping we just started! A family tradition for Dad, Julie and me at any holiday we're all together! LOVE being home for the holidays!!
Wed December 23, 2009, 4:00 pm: Caleb just crawled over to where Papa was sitting, stood up and when Papa picked him up he smiled and gave him a hug! So sweet!! SUPER bummed I didn't get a picture!
Wed December 23, 2009, 6:29 pm: BETTER quote of the day: Miriam (my 4 year old niece): "Where's Papa?" Me: He's upstairs going potty Miriam: When's he gonna be back? Me: "Oh, probably in about five minutes." Miriam: "Oh, or maybe like 10 minutes, or maybe 2 days!"

Be Blessed and Encouraged!
