Beginnings


i have never blogged before. My friend Tara asked me yesterday if i have a blog and somehow i felt like i was missing out on a piece of society so here i am...blogging (thanks tara).

i am a wife of 4.5 years. i am also a brand new mommy. My son, Caleb is officially 2.5 months old (not in the pic though). I still can't believe 3 months ago i was a very pregnant lady slightly resembling a beached whale. (giggle). now i find myself a learned diaper changer ( i had never changed a diaper before caleb) and a bona fide mom. for years i have been terrified to tears about being a mother. when i finally made my mind up to deal with my fears and bring a child into this world Heavenly Father reminded me who is in charge. a year and many tears later i was pregnant and still terrified. while still somewhat terrified of how much damage i can do i also see a larger opportunity for learning more about love (done preaching).

so welcome to the blog for the budding hakes famly

I am so happy your are a blogger! Let me know if you have any questions. I told you before, I finally became a blogger because I decided it would be how I'd scrapbook. I am going to use Blurb.com to scrapbook my blog at the end of the year. Maybe that will be helpful for you.

Love ya.

Tara
