For instance, in 2007 I was doing my Accounting Clerk job duties and all of the sudden, I'm think "the next time an A/P position opens I'm gonna go for it, cause I'm ready to do something else." I didn't tell anyone about it. It was just one of those "that would be nice" things. Probably like 2 days later LaDeborah came over to me and said, "Someone is leaving, when the spot opens up, you should go for it". It was perfect... I knew I was suppose to apply for the position.
So now, I have a decision to make, but it's not one of those easy "I already know what I should do" decisions. It's one of the harder ones and I'm really at a crossroads of what I should do.
So I wrote this whole big vauge note just to ask for prayer that I make the right decision. Thanks a bunch!

Here is an oldie, but a goodie.
He fell asleep a couple times after this, but this was the first time he had done it. I had my first "mommy moment" that day. I heard him jumping and stuff, then all of the sudden things were just a little too quiet. I walk out of the kitchen and find him asleep.

Joe, Elijah and I saw him reading at the Festival of Trees in November. At the end of his reading he talked about how he points up and what it means. It was really cool to hear him saying what he was saying. I video taped part of it:
Afterward we met him and got his autograph.
I was silent the whole time. Joe talked to him about how he likes hearing him on WRBS (the Christian radio station in Baltimore). He seems like a really nice guy.
But anyway... GO RAVENS! This week will be interesting in my house...

Just 12 short months ago I made my big debut and now I'd like to celebrate my 1st Birthday with you.
My little hands play patty-cake, they peek-a-boo and wave. They catch me while I learn to walk and splash me as I bathe.
They hold your fingers tightly and touch your heart so deep. My little hands reach out to you for hugs before I sleep.
My little hands are tiny now but yours will serve to guide me, and when I'm grown I'll still reach out and know you're right beside me.

Man, I can't believe it's been a year already... I feel like he was only born a couple days ago. Next thing you know I'll be posting that he's starting his first day of school and he's going into high school... graduating, going to college... getting married. Geesh, I don't want to think about all this.
I'll post pictures of the festivities sometime either tomorrow or Friday. Whenever I get a spare minute amidst the chaos.

Last night was very interesting in the Raymond household. Elijah was apparently excited about it being New Years Eve, so he decided not to go to bed until 11:30pm. So we all (except Elijah) did the whole stay up til Midnight thing and rang in the New Year. By the time I ate and got settled it was about 12:30 or 1am. Guess who decided to wake up at 4am? Yep, you guessed it and he decided that it was time to play. We were having none of that, so he finally fell asleep in bed with us. Then he woke up again around 7:30. He ate and went back to sleep with us again until about 9, so I'm a little tired today. I slept in until about 10, then I let Joe take a nap, so we're feeling a little more rested now.
Since today is the first, that means I have to do my "second job". I host a challenge on a digital scrapbooking site, Digital Freebies, called the ABC Challenge. I basically go through the alphabet picking topics starting with whatever letter I'm on. The participants do a layout about that topic, post a link on the forum and they get a prize. I do this every 1st and 16th of every month. This month the letter is O. The subjects are Outdoors/Outside or Ordinary Day. If they complete the layout they get a piece from this kit:
