Just the Beginning

I have enjoyed reading everyone's blogs that I thought I should try it to keep a little snap shot in time of my family. There diffently is never a dull moment in our household. I am not as great a writer as many of you but I will give it a try. Jason and I have been together for around 14 years now and married seven of those. We met working at Hy-vee together. I never really understood why Jason would always come into Hy-vee and go thru my checkout with his friend Kirk. They would always by a pop and chat with me for a few minutes then leave. One night they came in and they asked me to go to a party with them. I did and my dear friend Shawna came along. I really was more interested in Jason's other friend and still had no idea he had interest in me. Well from that moment in time Jason and I started our journey together and oh what a journey it has been. We got engaged the morning I graduated college in 2000 from WIU, we married April 28th, 2001 and found out we were having our first baby in Feb of 2002. On November 12, 2002 we had our first child Morgan Oliva Waste. That is a day I will never forget. It just seems like yesterday I was in the room getting ready to have her.

Morgan was not and is not alway the easiest thing. She struggled with Asthma much of her baby days and mom and dad got the best of that. Lack of sleep and a lot of vommiting and doctor visits sum that up. Christy got a little taste of that on one of our shopping trips. Morgan is now five and going to be starting kindergarden in the fall. I can't believe were the time has went. But in the midst of Morgan we found out in Jan of 2006 that we were going to have another baby.

Blake Aaron Waste was born on September 26th, 2006. A boy and our girl we are so blessed with one of each. Boy's are different. The most recent difference that I got to experince is on our short trip to St.louis this past weekend. We took the kids swimming one evening in the hotel and my little Blake thought he was big enough to swim on his own and did not want me to hold him in aound 3-4 foot of water. Morgan at that age would not let go of me and was scared out of her mind. The joys of Motherhood. I try to capture each moment. Blake is diffently all boy and I enjoy him every day. Some days more than others.

I am diffenetly understanding motherhood more and more every day with the two of them. They have a love-hate relationship. This is just the beginning.
