Laundry Basket Fun

So, I finally bought a laundry basket to keep all of Kinely's toys in that stay in the living room. She has had so much fun playing in it. And, she has started to pull up on things that she can reach to. She might be a small little toot, but she is definitely strong and determined! :) Such a big girl!

Oh, how this sweet smile just melts my heart!

I'm still trying to figure out posting with pictures. It will take some practice!

My First Blog!!

Ok, so this is my first blog post! I am really excited to start a blog! Honestly, I wish I had started one much sooner. I regret not having one the first 8 months of Kinley's life. But, that's ok. I have all the monthly highlights and milestones recorded in her baby book and have written some in a journel. I'm hoping to blog more of our day to day life and enjoy looking back on it later on.

I have several friends that blog and I always enjoy reading their posts. I think it's neat how some of them have met people through their blogs and are now friends! Really, if no one other than our family reads, that is fine by me. This is just meant to be a journal of our life.

I absolutely LOVE my blog design. It's just perfect. It was created by the talented Faith, at A Design of Faith. You should check her out if you are in need of a new design. She is super sweet, has great prices, and is excellent about creating exactly what you want!

In case there does happen to be one person to stumble across my blog, I will tell you a little bit about our family. My husband (Jared) and I have been married for almost 7 years. We started dating when I was 17 and dated for 6 1/2 years before we got married! Yup, we have been together for 13 1/2 years. I'm really blessed to have him. He is my best friend. He is an amazing father and just absolutely adores Kinley. I think he would be a staty at home dad if he could! Anyway, we both grew up in NW Arkansas. We moved to Central Arkansas almost 4 years ago. It was a big change for us. We have never lived anywhere else other than Fayetteville. We moved for Jared to go to medical school. He is just getting ready to finish his 3rd year, one more year to go!! I went to nursing school and before I had Kinley, I worked for a very high maintenance neurosurgeon. There was never a dull moment and I learned a lot. But, now I have the most amazing "job" in the world, being a SAHM. I love every minute of it and don't take it for granted. There are definitely challenging moments, but I wouldn't trade them for the world. We are so grateful that God chose us to be Kinley's parents.
