Pity party is over....

I woke up this morning and decided that I needed to stop worrying about things that are out of my control.  I need to be MORE THAN HAPPY that they are so cautious with my little man.  I need to respect God's ultimate plan and stop telling him what I think needs to happen.  So I decided I would try a fun blog post today.  I've read these before from other blogs I follow and I always enjoy reading them.  If you care to learn a little about our family...read on!  :-)
