Since this blog is going to serve as a place for me to document our families day to day life, I'll guess I should start from the beginning and introduce you to my beautiful family!
My name is Cammie. I'm 24 years old. I'm a mommy of an adorable newborn. [I know, I know...everyone thinks their baby is cute...I still think we did pretty good though...! ] I work as a Registered Nurse...I'm on maternity leave for 5 months! I absolutely love being a nurse, but I think going back to work is going to be the hardest thing
My husband, Matt, and I got married on December 29th 2007. Matt and I are high school sweethearts...we started dating when we were 16! Matt is the love of my life, my partner and best friend. A faithful man of God and spiritual leader in my life. He teaches high school History at a private Christian School. Avid sports fan, and baseball lover. He used to play baseball at the University of Washington, and now gets to do what he loves, by coaching at the high school. He's passionate, funny, and always makes he laugh. God has blessed me beyond measure!
Matt and I are so blessed to be surrounded and loved by our family and friends. My parents [Grammy and Grandpa], are such a blessing in our lives. We are so fortunate to have them live about 5 minutes away, so visits are very frequent [especially these days!]. My mom is one of the sweetest people that I know, one of my very best friends, and CANNOT get enough of her first grandson! My dad has such a tender heart, loves being a Grandpa, and is such a godly example to Matt and I. I also have a brother and sister-in-law who live in Colorado...we miss them very much and can't wait for them to meet their newest nephew!
It's funny because family dinners with my side of the family are small and quiet. Needless to say with 6 brothers and sisters, spouses, 9 neices and nephews and one of the way, it's not the same with Matt's family. I absolutely love the contrast between our two families! Matt's parents [Grandma and Papa] live about 20 minutes away from us. Matt's dad is the Pastor of our church and such a blessing and source of spiritual guidance in our lives. Matt's mom is one of the most caring people I know...her grandkids are so blessed to have a Grandma like her! Matt has 2 brothers, 1 sister and their families who live nearby. He has 1 brother and 1 sister and their families that live out of state and we miss dearly! I am so lucky to say that my best friends are my family!
This would be the point where I would introduce you to our newest addition, but I would be neglectful if I didn't introduce our very first baby, Lexi. Lexi is a 5 year old miniture cockapoo. Lexi loves long walks, belly rubs, Chicken treats, playing with her kitty [no joke, it's a life size stuffed animal cat, and is the ONLY toy she will wrestle and play with...needless to say, we don't buy her toys anymore...], and giving kisses, loves the phrase "wanna go bye-byes?" and knows exactly what the sound of keys means. Although life has changed for Lexi a bit lately, she is defiantly taking it in stride. She spends alot of time sitting on the back of the couch observing this new little addition to our family. I don't think she's quite fond of him yet, but I know that someday they will be best of buds.
On Febuary 19th 2011, we welcomed our first child into this world. What an amazing experience it was! [I'll share his birth story later]. We are absolutely in LOVE with little Matthew Jr. and soaking up every minute we get to spend with him. I can't believe how much he has changed even in the short 4 weeks he's been a part of our lives!
I started this blog so that I can document the day to day happenings of our lives, and to keep our loved ones up to date on
