My name is Hailee and I am a procrastinating blogger.

I realize it has been over a year since I have blogged, but I have realized that I am not good at it so I have avoided it as long as possible. But I suppose practice makes perfect.  I also did not feel that my life was interesting enough to blog about, but all that is changed......
On December 28, 2011 I was blessed with the most wonderful gifts in the world! And no it wasn't money or fame or even a hot date with Johnny Depp. It was my son Kingston James, the love of my life. I never really understood unconditional love until I met Kingston. There is nothing in the world that he could do that would make me stop loving him. I miss him like crazy every time I am away from him. Even when he is asleep for the night, I can't wait for morning so I get to see his sweet little face again. He has changed my life in so many ways. I am a different person because of him. I can't imagine not holding him everyday and kissing his rosy little cheeks. I have often wondered what I want to be when I grow up. A mom was always one of them, but I never realized that being a mom is my dream job and I am so lucky to have been chosen for such a beautiful little boy. Motherhood is such a divine gift, it makes me sad that some people choose to defile it. Being a parent is a hard and terrifying job. There are so many "what ifs" and emotions that come along with having a child. Like what if he gets hurt or sick! Those are daily worries I face everyday, but the scariest ones to me are what if I am not a good example to him or what if I fail at teaching him about the gospel or helping to strengthen his testimony. I guess all I can do is pray for the best and try a little harder everyday to be a good example to my son. But for now I will continue to fall in love more and more everyday with my little boy...oh and my husband. ;)
