Bye, Bye 2009....Hello 2010

I have just gotten out of the shower & am ready for our big 2009 NYE celebration; I am in my newest most comfortable VS pj's & & so happy that we will be spending the night listening to the sound of the womb through the baby monitor......honestly we probably won't even make it to the ball dropping & we are alright with that! To say good bye to 2009 is VERY bittersweet; it has been the best year of my life & I know that 2010 will be great in it's own way but 2009 will always be a year to remember. It is funny that I said this back in 2007 too; that was the year that I married the man of my dreams & I thought nothing could top that.....boy was I wrong!!

It's not that our wedding wasn't one of the best days of my life but I don't think anything will ever compare to pregnancy & giving birth to the most wonderful & happy little boy I have ever laid my eyes on. Lance & I's marriage has also changed & we have just recently figured it out (well for now that is) & I feel closer to him now than I ever have. 2009 will always hold a special place in my heart & here is the recap in pictures.......

January - 11 weeks pregnant & I thought that this was considered a belly....HAHAHAHA We also got our first picture of little man....we were beside ourselves!!

February - 16 Weeks along & I started this blog!

March - 20 Weeks along, we're getting a belly now right & IT'S A BOY.....We were expecting Brayden Lance Goodson & couldn't be more excited!!

April - 26 Weeks along & this is the month that I was getting ready & Lance looked out at me from the closet & said "HOLY SHIT, WHERE DID THAT THING COME FROM"....he was talking about my belly & needless to say I burst out in tears!!

We also went to South Carolina on vacation & had so much fun!!

May - 29 Weeks in this picture, a new mommy mobile & my 1st baby shower (Lance's sister threw it)!!

June - 33 Weeks Along & my work baby shower

July - 38 Weeks Along, Maternity Photos & I passed by my due date of July 28th & there was no sign of him coming anytime soon!! I guess he liked it in there :)

August - I was admited to the hospital on August 2nd to be induced & Brayden arrived on August 3rd at 6:57pm.

August was also when our poor 3 week old baby was admitted to the ER because he spiked a was so hard to see him like this!!

September - 1 month old & back to work.....good thing I got to take Brayden with me!!

October - 2 months old, trip to Helen, GA & football

November - 3 months old, our trip to Virginia Beach to see Grams & Puddy & Thanksgiving

December - 4 months old, feet & Christmas

2010 is going to be a great year for the Goodson family; I mean how could it not be with Brayden in our lives right? I am going to watch our son grow up & love both Brayden & Lance everyday with my whole heart (Georgia & Bella too)!!

Have a happy & safe new year & I will talk to everyone next year......hahaha!!

Presents, Presents, Presents....

Lance & I told each other that we weren't going to do presents for each other this year since Brayden is getting so much...we know each other all to well though. I got Lance a leather jacket that he has been wanting & he got me this............

& this.....

& this too......

it even has a pink inside.....

To say he went overboard a bit would be an understatement; I love Coach & have been wanting a brown purse & new wallet but didn't think they would both be under the tree this year :) I would have to say though these presents don't compare to the best present we both got earlier this year. Our little man is the best present we could have ever asked for & we are so blessed & thankful to have him in our lives. We love you Brayden, mommy & daddy love you so very much & will forever!!!
