My first blog :)

Welcome to my blog!! My name is Courtney and I'm 22 years old and I'm married to a great guy and most importantly an absolutely wonderful father, Daniel. We started dating on January 5th, 2002 during our sophmore year of high school. We later got engaged on September 23rd, 2006 at a beautiful bed and breakfast in Staunton, VA. A trip that was planned completely by Daniel. He put my engagement ring in the bottom of the glass I was drinking out of and I drank the entire drink without noticing the ring was there, duh! When I took my last sip, I heard the ring cling and the next thing I know Daniel is down on one knee. I will never forget that day! We got married on May 12th, 2007 in my dream wedding. We got married on a deck overlooking the ocean with 100 of our closest friends and family. We honeymooned in Gatlinburg, TN where we rented a gorgeous cabin in the woods, I hope to go back there someday. About 5 months after our wedding Daniel started to work for a sheriff's department in one of our local jails and I continued working part time at a cable company and going to school full time. We enjoyed our first year of marriage as a happy twosome and then on April 24th, 2008 everything changed (in the best way possible). I had noticed some changes in my body and immediately suspected I was pregnant so on the 24th of April I took 2 pregnancy tests and before I could even set the tests down on the counter, both were positive. Daniel was so much more calm then I was, I couldn't think and felt completely overwhelmed. I wanted to finish school and buy a home before having a baby. Ol well, everything works out for a reason :) After about a week, everything sunk in and I realized I had always wanted to be a young mom and was excited from then on. When we found out we were pregnant we were in a 1 bedroom apartment so I knew we needed more space. We started looking for houses in August and on September 25th, 2008 closed on our first house!! It's 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and has a fenced in backyard, it's big enough for us to grow our family in. I love being a homeowner!!! 3 months after buying our home we welcomed our first child, a son, named Hunter Allen Morrison on December 23rd, 2008. He was 8 pounds 4 oz and 21 inches long and he is the most beautiful baby boy I have ever seen. (I'm pretty biased though) My life will never be the same and I'm enjoying every minute of it. I'm more in love with Daniel then I ever have been because he helped me create such a beautiful boy. I'm really excited to see what the future holds for us!
