Kind of missing....

I know I disappeared,  
with the move and internet issues and vacations and going back to work part time and potty training,
my blog was put in last place through it all. 
Sorry to all my followers, hopefully I will be back in full swing soon!

The Hawkins HOME

We have found a house
a place to call our own
a place to make a home
a home where we will raise our family
a home were love will grow.
 We are soooo excited to show you our new HOME:

 We officially will move in this weekend 
and I have to say I have never been more excited to pack,
to live out of boxes,
 to unpack,
 and to decorate
Check back often and follow me as we make this house a home!

This week we are on VACATION!
that means 
a break from TV
from bills
from work
from cleaning 
from laundry
from everyday life
Did I mention I LOVE VACATIONS?!?
We are at my family's Park City, Utah timeshare this week!
 We get to sit in the hot tubs and pool for HOURS, with no worries!

and we get to explore this beautiful place

We even get to do silly things like fill momma's shoes with rocks... because we have all the time in the world!
and we get to just lounge around and play all day!

Remember when?

I just found this video I made a few years ago...
and it made me want to cry!
Do you Remember when your baby did this?
Do you remember when they started babbling?
Do you remember their first steps?
Do you remember the exact moment they said their first word?
We'll I cant, and I know why...
I was too busy saying "I cant wait for you to WALK"
"I cant wait for you to TALK"
"I cant wait for you to ENTERTAIN YOUR SELF"
"I cant wait for you to SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT"
and NOW I regret doing it the way I did
I regret not watching him sleep for hours on end, I should have laid there and watched him instead of cleaning the house
I should of held him longer instead of putting him in his bouncy because now he is "too busy" to let me hold him.
It wasnt until he was older I realized I should have held on tight to the moment.
I wish that I would have known that this will go by SO FAST and I cant get any of it back.

My new goal:
Cherish the new MOMENTS we have 
let him play and be a BOY without worrying how dirty he gets
Hold him longer (when he lets me)
Play toys on the floor with him for as long as he needs
read him book after book after book without worrying about the dishes
stop staying "I cant wait"

is anyone with me?
