Ultimate Blog Party 2011!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

I took part in the Ultimate Blog Party last year, and was thrilled when I received the email about this years event! Now on with my introduction...

Welcome to my blog! I'm so happy you have decided to visit, and I hope you'll stick around. My name is Kami (pronounced "K-Me"). I'm a 29 year old stay at home mom, to one heck of a ridiculously cute baby boy, Lincoln, who's 16 months old. I'm also a wife to a dashingly handsome police officer. This blog documents all of our life milestones, events, and even a few giveaways thrown in here and there :)

OH, I almost forgot to tell you....I live next to my inlaws, so sometimes things get interesting around here...

Jared & I met in 2005. He literally swept me off my feet. I don't think I would be a believer in "love at first sight," if it wasn't for him.
Oh Christmas Eve 2005, he popped the big question and with that, we were married on May 20, 2007. We had a beautiful outdoor ceremony, that was really like a fairytale...horse & carriage and all! After being married for a year, we decided to build our own house! [note: this is where living next to the inlaws comes into play]. It took us one year to build our house. I mentioned my husband is a police officer. Here we are on the night of his graduation from the Academy. I couldn't be more proud. On March 22, 2009, our lives were forever changed with one little word... I had a wonderful pregnancy. We were thrilled to find out we were having a boy!

This was my last belly picture, taken at 38 weeks, 3 days. I had a scheduled c-section at 39 weeks 1 day. I was HUGE!!! On November 23, 2009, at 8:43am we were blessed with our son, Lincoln James. Our baby weighed 8 lbs 13 oz, and was 21 inches long.
We were so in love...
Today we are enjoying our little family of three. We are planning on giving Lincoln a sibling sometime within this year, so right now we're trying to soak up all the individual time we can get with our sweet boy.
Our life is crazy and hectic at times, but I wouldn't have it any other way. My family is my world. Thanks for stopping by my blog!! :)
