Welcome 2014

Another year has passed and we are ready to get going for 2014 as a family. Its so exciting to go into this new year with our beautiful baby boy and only a year left of school for me. 2013 had wrapped up with quite a few things that has shaken us financially, but no worries! God has got everything under control. Both David and I made resolutions to become more committed to our devotion time with God individually and together as a couple. I have a bible app that has many devotions to choose from. For the new year I decided to go through the chronological bible devotional. It should be an interesting way to read through God's word.
Julien is growing so big and fast. He is cooing a lot more often now which is so rewarding to see him interact with me. I am trying my hardest to love everything I am experiencing right now in these moments, but I am totally looking forward to seeing start to move around more on his own and develop that cute, hearty baby laugh. Overall I am thankful for all 2013 and look forward to 2014.

Date night

Last night was date night. Our first night out without baby Julien. It was nice to spend time with each other. Of course, immediately after we left the first topic that comes out of my mouth is Julien. David had to remind me that we should talk about us.
It's so important for couples to spend some time together away from their kids to strengthen their own bond. I've been told stories of friends that didn't take time with each other and regret it. One couple said they love their children to death, but their relationship has dwindled a little. We see it in movies all the time where the kids have grown and started lives of their own and the parents no longer love each other or even know each other anymore. David and I discussed before getting married that we would love each other first and then our kids. It's so important to love each other first. You tighten the bond with each other and show your children what love is, especially when they begin to get into relationships of their own. David and I want to be able to show Julien that we love each other and that he can be secure in knowing that that is one thing he doesn't have to worry about.
