New bloggy friends and awards!

Hi! I've been noticing from comments and followers that I have some new readers out there. Thanks for stopping by! I absolutely love this blogging community. I got so many comments on my last post about my lovely daughter throwing fits. Thanks to all of you who commented with your support, encouragement and things that have worked for you. Julianne is doing much better yesterday and today. She did just get a new tooth so I'm not sure if that was contributing to the moodiness but we shall see. A sincere thanks to all of you who offered words of wisdom. I love hearing what has worked for other parents and it's always lovely to hear that you are not alone.
I received so many comments from people who have not commented before and it's so fun hearing from you. Please leave a comment today and let me know who you are (where you live, how many kids you have, a little about you) and how you found my blog. If you want to get to know me a little better, read my first post from almost a year ago which gives you my background in a nutshell.

I've recently found some new blogs that I read and have made some new friends. Two of them were nice enough to give me awards last week and I would like to acknowledge them and pass on the awards to others.

My first award is from Ashley at Joshley and The Charles. She is a super sweet girl and you should check out her blog if you don't know her yet. She has the same hometown as me which already makes her cool in my eyes. She gave me The Friend Award:

"This award is bestowed on to blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. The are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of the award."

It's now my turn to pass this award on to 8 bloggers who I feel deserve this award. So here goes!

I would like to pass on this award to some of the newest blogs that I read and love!!

Thanks to Ashley and Sandy for my awards. When I started this blog it was my intention to journal our families memories and to make new friends. It's been more than I hoped for!

I'm so happy that I found your lovely, welcoming blog! Congratulations on these well deserved awards:) I look forward to visiting your nominees too. I'm so glad that Julianne is doing much better today. It was probably that tooth. Have a great day!

Blogging is so much fun but I don't get much comments. :(

Love your blog. I'm not a mommy but I love my mom. Does that count? :P

Hey gal. You said to let you know where your new commenters/followers were from and their kids and all, so...I'm Shaye and I'm from Nebraska. I have a 1 year old, 3 year old, and 5 year old. As a stay-at-home-mom I'm also an adjunct and teach courses at the local college (for library science) when they need another MLS-degreed teacher. It's fun teaching at the same college where my hubby is an English professor. I'd love to do it full time, so after I finish up this second master's degree I'll be starting my PhD so that we can hopefully work together way on down the road--manipulating our professor schedules so that we can be available to our children, as well.

Thanks for sending us back to your very first post. It's really nice getting to know you!

Thank you so much! You are so sweet <3

I feel so awful for not being able to keep up with my blog these past few weeks....school has been killing me! My very intense and condensed education class will be over next week so that will be one huge weight off my shoulders!
