Suddenly I'm 30: Life Lately

Life at the Edwards Nest has been busy to say the least.  It has been 6 months since I have graced this blog and its something I have missed.  I have taken several breaks throughout the years and every time, I miss it.
Today, I turn 30...officially, and I thought it was a prefect day to get back on the wagon. So, here is a little life lately update.

The last I left you, our family was getting ready to expand.  I was also holding out and never released the gender.  Our sweet baby Edwards #2 is a Boy!!  He is just a perfect addition to our family and its like he has been with us forever.
Coleman Jackson Edwards came into the world on the morning of January 5, 2016. 

 Griffin has been a great big brother.  I couldn't of asked for a better transition for him.  He takes his role of big brother very seriously and loves sweet Coleman.

 This was taken about 10 days after I had Coleman.  Coleman was delivered by C-section and I was told I would not be able to lift anything over 5 pounds for 2-4 weeks.  Griffin weighs 25lbs.  Griffin did fine with me not being about to hold him, but Mama, not so much.  At 10 days post-op I begged my OB to allow me to carry by boy.  I got the okay to pick up, carry, snuggle, and love on my oldest son and that's just what I did.  This was good for my heart.

Coleman is now 4 months old and such a joy.  He is a very content baby and fits in with out family like a dream.  Will be updating you on his month by month soon.

 On the home front, things are still progressing.  We moved in this past June and we are steadily doing stuff.  I am one to make it feel like home and want things decorated and done.  Some rooms in the house are complete and others are not.  We were able to get grass planted for the yard and had some bushes planted around the house.  Still a work in progress a year later and I am sure this time next year I will be saying it again. 

 Griffin has grown so much over the past 6 months and even more so within the past 4 months.  Since bringing Coleman home from the hospital he has seemed to really be blossoming.  His language is out of this world and some of the things he says blows my mind and has me taken back.  He is learning so much in school and is getting ready to move to 2K!  He turned 2 in April.

That's a quick update.  More to come soon.  I am so thrilled to be back.  This is a community that I love to be apart of and I love having this forum as a type of online scrapbook for our life.  Hope you all have a blessed Friday-Eve!  I know I will...taking the day off to celebrate my birthday with the ones that I love.
