Aaron is on the move!

Ok so those of you who said my days would soon change when Aaron starts crawling are sooo right!!!  It just happened Tuesday morning, he finally grasped the concept of going forward instead of backward and now he is on the move.  We are now starting to baby proof the house.  I found him sitting up in his crib after naptime yesterday so lowering the bed is now a must.  He is starting to pull himself up on things.  Right now he can only make it to his knees, but very shortly he will be able to pull himself into a standing position.  He is growing so fast and is now into 9-12month clothes.  He is so adorable right now and loves being around people.  It takes him a few minutes to adjust, but he always thinks everyone is talking to him.  Even when I'm on the phone he just grins at me.  He still goes everywhere with me.  I even take him to my bible study on Friday mornings.  He does so good and actually just sits and listens as everyone talks.  He loves his daddy so much and gets excited as soon as he walks in the door. 
We are still adjusting to this new environment, especially me, but I have made a few new friends and joined a bible study and with the youth group at our church I have things to do to keep me busy. The weather here in FL is still cold right now, but we are looking forward to the days when it warms up and I can take Aaron to the park and zoo and do fun things together.  I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support and I can't wait to visit KY again this summer to celebrate Aaron's first birthday!!  I want to close with this thought from my Beth Moore bible study on Daniel.  She wrote that "Satan recognizes the treasures God has given us more than we do."  This is so true, a lot of times we take for granite all of the blessings we have.  Each day is a gift and I pray that I don't get so caught up in the "routine" of life and just trying to get from one day to the next that I forget to stop and smell the roses.  There is so much to be thankful for and the fact that we don't deserve any of it at all is very humbling to me.  It's easy for me to sit here and stress about the chores around the house and Aaron getting into absolutely everything :) but the fact is God has blessed me with an amazing life and I want to give him all of the glory and say Thank you!! I want to be a good steward of all that he has blessed me with. God is so Good!
