**Post Disclaimer**

Below is a little story I wrote for our son, Hayvn. Now some of you might note the silliness of said post. I couldn't agree with you more. But I recently went on a blogging strike cause I was sure that my lack of wit and intelligent observations made me actually an anti-blogger. I mean, who cares about my adventures with my new little son? Not many people, I'm sure.

But, then a very sweet friend of mine freed me when she told me that you can now upload blogs to certain sites that will print them out book style for you to save for all of prosperity. What an idea! I love this... and knowing this, I came to the conclusion that maybe Hayvn would one day want to read all about his first year of life. So suddenly free from the pressure of having to impress you folks, I can now write knowing I only have to impress some future Hayvn...and being his mom, I hope he has some grace for me.

This all being said, I took the soap box away from my husband (periodically) and wrote a little story to Hayvn about how his nickname went from Little Bug to Little Bear on his first camping trip to the High Sierras. His new nickname is so appropriate, that his daddy felt inspired to get a new tattoo for his little man...



Anyway, this is just a warning that most of my posts from now on may be pretty silly, with sentiments that are mostly cheesy...with the exception of Jeremy's public rants. Gotta give the guy some sort of an outlet...

I think when you become a parent all other things in life have less meaning than your child. I write about Jude all the time in my blog, and I enjoy reading about other moms adventures with their children. I check here often to see how your wonderful little man is doing. I started a journal for Jude. A leather book I got from Barnes and Noble. I write to him in it about dreams, thought, things he is doing and I try and include pictures. I don't plan on telling him about it and surprising him with it when he has kids of his own someday. You can steal this idea if you want. I LOVE writing to my son.

P.S. We call Jude "Goomba" so much that I think he's going to think it is his name.

hey shannon! i think the journal idea is a great one...and i actually started a journey for our future child in April 2006--almost 2 years before Hayvn finally came! I still write in it to tell him lots of stuff...and I too am keeping it a surprise for our little man. Now i'll have the blog to add to the mix...hayvn is prolly gonna hate me for all this stuff, but i don't care. :)

No need to impress us. Just look at the garbage I post on our blog.

You are too funny! I think everyone thinks they suck at writing blogs, but they're usually wrong! I love reading your blog, it's adorable! Plus I don't have to make you repeat yourself a million times when I ask about how your little one has been, because I can read it and I love that!
