ok, i am ready now...

So..... my many failed attempts to start this blog are quite funny to look back on. I gues, without further ado, I will begin this blog (again). Since beginning it in 2007, i think? (wow, that's embarrasing) Well, we moved to Gardendale from Tuscaloosa, and began my first job as a Speech-Language Pathologist. I loved it, enjoyed it. Became pregnant and Ridge was born June 1, 2009. He is a healthy thriving young 3 year old boy now! (I hate playing catch-up). July 27, 2011 our second healthy boy was born, Fulton, who is now almost 11 months old. Life is crazy at the Wiggins house. I do well if I've brused my teeth by lunch and we won't even talk about showers lately. (I've gotta come up with a better system.) Anyway, no holding back, I will be real here. A lot of my friends have blogs and I have always wondered, "How in the world do they have time to do it???" Well, if I'm already struggling with brushing teeth and showering, adding this to my list may quarentine me to my home forever and you will never see me out! Ha No really, enough about that. I'm one of those people that can't start working out on a Wednesday. I like to begin something new at the beginning of the week, and oooh, even better, at the beginning of the month! So, the idea of starting a blog stressed me out thinking about it because I thought, "I have so much to catch up on!!!" "Where do I begin?" "Day 1 with Ridge?" "I didn't document any of his month to month except in the old-school baby books and that is so sparse as it is, and, "oh no, now Fulton is almost 11 months, blah, blah..." I can't worry about playing catch up. It won't happen and IT IS OK!!! I will start at this point in our life and if my children ever ask, (which they probably won't), "Mom, what happened while we were little babies, why did you not really document that?" I'll say, well, mom doesn't really remember a lot of that anyway. We were too sleep deprived to remember! No, really, these documented memories are for us to enjoy one day when you're older and probably more for me than anyone else. So, here's to you boys, this is for you!!! I love you more than I can ever express here.. So, here we go. Take 5?!?! I don't even know, I lost count.....and I still don't know how to do this. This picture is supposed to be centered... ha!
