2014 Year in Review: The Year of Jackson!

Happy New Year's Eve, y'all!
I thought last year was fast. No. No, that was not fast at all compared to this year. Noooo way. Ha! :) Maybe it has something to so with being crazy busy with a baby! Let's get to the year in review, shall we? Ready.... Set... Go!
2014 began with quite a scare. I was 22 weeks pregnant with Baby Jackson, and on January 1st, I had terrible shortness of breath, and could not even lay down I was so uncomfortable. What I thought was the flu or bronchitis was actually a blood clot in my left lung. I had to give myself Lovenox shots twice a day from January til May because of it. It made me realize that I would do absolutely anything for my baby boy and how much I could face my fear of shots. The Lord gave me such strength daily for this! Thank you, God!

On to a much better highlight, we also registered for baby goodies this month! Oh, what fun it was!

Baby love! Russell and I enjoyed Valentine's Day and took this picture before we went to dinner that night.

Russell also put together Jackson's crib!

We celebrated Jackson's upcoming arrival lots this month with baby showers!
It was wonderful to see many family members and friends at the showers. 
Our lives changed completely on April 21st as Jackson Randolph Price entered the world! It seemed like forever until I finally got to hold him, but it was like nothing else when Mommy met son. Best moment ever!
I celebrated my 1st Mother's Day. So special.
Our special friends, Kim and Emily, came to meet Jackson for the first time! We had so much fun!
We enjoyed spending time with lots of family this month! Jackson visited Camden and Magnolia for the first time.
Sweet baby bear. Oh my!
Sweet little chubby cheeks enjoyed his 1st 4th of July!
Jackson even met Elsa and Anna! :)
Jackson wore his cute little swim trunks and rash guard and went swimming for the first time. :) He wasn't too fond of it. Next year will be more fun.
August is my bday month and it was the best birthday ever!
We were so excited to celebrate the beginning of fall.
J also tried green beans for the first time. He likes them now!
Our lil punkin grew and grew so fast this month.
He was a sweet lil lion for Halloween!
Oh, I know I am very partial, but I think he just gets sweeter and cuter every day!
Jackson's 1st Thanksgiving! 
Jackson's 1st Christmas! I will post about it soon!
I cannot believe 2014 is pretty much over! Make every day a memorable one! I love y'all so much and I hope you have a fabulous, prosperous, healthy, and blessed 2015! Make memories! 

So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. Hebrews 4:16
