I'm Not Gonna Cry, I'm Not Gonna Cry!!

So tomorrow at 1:26 my baby girl will be 7!!! What!! REALLY 7, not possible!!!! It seems like last week I was at the doctors office with my mom for a check up only to be told, "Well Mrs. Harden you are having a baby today" can we say I LOST it!! Not only was I going to have my baby today (so not the plan), my husband was in Wilsonville working and I could not get him to answer the phone!!!
Needless to say that was one of the happiest days of my life!! She has brought so much joy and happiness to our lives not to mention a little drama
Everyone tells you time flies when you have little ones, and they are not kidding, I'm just trying to cherish every moment, good or bad, with my babies (yes in my eyes they are still babies). Braigen is already telling us that she is "in love" with this little cutie at school, and I'm just not ready to hear that kind of talk from my baby girl, but ready or not she is getting bigger, even though I do think that 7 is a little young to be "in love", but they start so young these days. And in case you are wondering, yes I am one of those moms who says she Will be 25 before her first date...haha People ask me all the time, more when she was little though, "If you had it to do all over again would you have had her when you were so young yourself? and the answer is Yes, Yes and Yes!! I mean at first it was difficult but I think being a younger mom has it's advantages too!!

Braigen you are so very dear to me and I couldn't imagine life without you!! Everyday you remind me of me when I was little, which makes me smile, but at times scares me too, I just hope you make smarter chocies than I did!! And one of the smartest ones was having you!! I love you Braigee Boo, you are truly my sunshine!!

OK so I'm really confused these days...I have been so emotional here lately, which is not like me at all. I'll just start thinking about something or someone and start crying. It all started around Brody's birthday and every since then it's like anything can make me cry. Just today as Braigen was walking into school I LOST it!! I guess it could be because I realize that they are getting so big and there is nothing I can do to stop it, but I'm not sure. Oh and once again I came across a song that I haven't heard in years and here come the water works!! I've got to get this under control quick, I can't take much more of this!! Has anyone else done like this? And will this go away?? Tell me what you think!

My Little Man Turned 4!!

I can't believe it, it seems like I should still be rocking him to sleep!!

Brody: No words could ever describe the amount of love I have for you!! You have brought so much love, laughter, and joy into every one's life. It seems like yesterday when we were at the hospital getting ready to go back into the O.R, I was so scared but excited at the same time, I just couldn't wait to hold you!! Then when you came out and I couldn't hold you, I couldn't really even see you for a while, we felt like our world came crashing down around us. I knew right then just how much you really did mean to me!! And of course you were a tough little guy and you did just fine, you just wanted to scare us all half to death!! Little did we know then that was gonna be your personality!! :)
I can't wait to continue to watch you grow and to be right there with you when you experience new things, or should I say see what else you can get into!! You and your sister are my world and I couldn't imagine life without you in it. I love you Brody James and we are truly blessed to have you!!

P.S Godspeed , which is below on my playlist, was a song my sister played for me when I found out that we were having a boy...and I cried like a little baby, from that day on I said this song would be my song to him~!!

Hangin With the Girls!!!

Saturday night Jennifer, Heather, Kim, Lori, Laura and I went out to eat at the Olive Garden, then for dessert we went to Crave...YUMMY!!!!!! Let me just say I had an awesome time getting back out with them, those girls are so encouraging, not to mention hilarious!!! After dinner we went back to Jenn's house to talk it and that we did, I didn't get home till around 1:30 or possibly even 2:00 GIRLS: can't wait to do it again, BUT next time lets try a Friday night so I'm not pinching myself during church to stay
