Tough Times!!

I was not sure I even wanted to blog this as once we get through this, I will never want to think about this again. We, my husband and I, are victims of the economy. The DAY our new baby was born, my husband lost his job and a mere 6 months later, we are still in the same boat and things are more stressful than ever. Bills have to be paid and we have to eat and our son needs diapers and neither of us have a job. I was REALLY hoping to be a stay-at-home mom, but, now, I find myself filling out applications to be a server at a restaurant just to try and make ends meet. Our situation has wreaked havoc on our lives...and, while I am "trying" to stay positive and trust God, I struggle daily because I have no clue what is going to happen...and, come on, let's be honest, we are all human and when it comes to our well-being, daily I fall on my knees asking God why he has not answered our prayers. I don't really know how much more I can take. I feel bad when I express my struggle to David because I know that he feels bad about this whole situation...so, there it is, folks...I am at a loss for words as to what to do. I am hurting because even though God has provided through people in our lives, which has been amazing, I don't know how we are going to possibly pull through this. I don't feel like I am strong enough to deal with this. i really hope God pulls through for us.

Five and a half months of awesomeness!

Sooo, on January 15, 2009, our lives changed forever!! I gave birth to a beautiful, 6 pound, 14 ounce, 21 inches long baby boy...we named him "Cobin James"...he has blonde hair and big, blue eyes! He was the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen! He wasn't due until January 27th, but he decided to come early. At around 5:45 in the morning, my water broke, so I jumped out of bed and David knew what was up. We called all of our family members to let them know. So, we grabbed all of our stuff we needed and we headed over to the hospital. I never dilated more than half a centimeter the whole time, so finally the doctor decided that it would be better to just perform a C-Section to get him out, so at 7:34 PM on that wonderful Thursday evening, he came into this world!
He had tons of visitors...especially from our awesome church!

He is getting such a personality! He is so sweet...he has such a laid-back personality...very easy-going! I really hope that he stays this sweet! When he smiles, he just melts my heart! He is amazing in SO many ways!
He is rolling over now. He loves when we read books to him...his favorite song is "Fools Rush In" by Elvis Presley! We have just started putting him on some baby food and he is loving it! He loves to cuddle and rock on the rocking chair. He also loves to go on walks and to be tickled. He is always a little hesitant, at first, about swimming, but then he just gets so hyper and kicks and squeals and splashes! He enjoys it very much!

We never knew we could love someone as much as we love our little Cobin! He is an amazing baby...I look forward to what he will do next! <3
