so far behind...working world!

Ok so I am one month behind on my blog posts...I have officially returned to work and my life is busy and crazy! I am home today with a little extra time to post while my sick little one is fast asleep. Yesterday I took him to the doctor and found out he has his little heart! It makes me so sad to see him struggle to cough and breath. I have covered him up with prayer and know that God will heal him and we will be blessed.  I already feel blessed that I am able to stay home with him today and hold him, rock him, and just give him extra love!  I am so grateful for Mrs. Terri (Grant's amazing babysitter) she took such good care of him yesterday when he felt bad and she suggested I take him to the doctor. I am blessed to have someone that loves my boy so much!!! today is Grant's seven month birthday...I can't believe it! I am loving every second of being Grant's mom and am so proud of him everyday! He has the sweetest little spirit ( I know I am bias)! He loves his dog Murray, loves to laugh at his daddy, loves to eat cereal and sweet potatoes, smiles with his eyes, has the cutest chubby cheeks, is nosey, is officially a wiggle worm and likes to roll all over the place, loves music, and loves to be read to. I will post some 7 month pics as soon as my sick baby is feeling better. 

Here are pictures of Grant on his 6 month birthday....

coming month pictures and Grant's first trip to the beach!!!!

In honor of Grant being five months old I am going to do a "Top 5 List"

Top 5 Things I love about Grant Holden
(This was hard because I could list a million)
1. God made him especially for Brad and I. Grant was made in His image and God knows every hair on his head.  The struggles we went through to get Grant were all part of God's  plan to place the perfect child with us. Through all things good and bad I will praise Him for this blessing!!! It changed my life and testimony and I owe Him all the Glory!
2. I love that he is a happy, healthy baby! Again, praise God!
3. I love the way he snuggles with me. He fits perfectly into my arms no matter how big he gets. I think I enjoy rocking him and cuddling with him just as much (if not more) than he does.
4. I love, love, love his sweet, innocent, precious smiles. Who can resist a gummy smile? And the dimple? It might just be to me, but I think Grant smiles with his eyes too...and I love that!
5. I love Grant's personality. I know he is only 5 months old but he is already full of a great personality ( I know all mothers think these things of their children, ha ha). He is a flirt, he has a funny, playful spirit, he is sweet like his daddy, and he is full of joy and love!
Here are some pictures of Grant at five months old:

Christmas 2011...Grant's first Christmas

What an incredible Christmas my sweet family celebrated! Thank you Lord for sending us your son, a baby in a manger! Happy birthday baby Jesus! We were blessed to celebrate Jesus' birth surrounded by family and friends.  By far, this has been the best Christmas of my life. Thank you Lord for giving me my sweet baby boy! Here are some highlights from Christmas....

Buck's Annual Christmas party...Great friends!
