My First Blog Post

Although I think of myself as "tech-savy," I know I am not. After several requests from blogging friends to get one for myself, I finally sat down and put one together. I worried that I would do more on the computer than in my actual journal. Hopefully I can combine the two and print out the most important posts to put in my journal.

So without further ado...The Smith family finally has a blog!!! Yeah!!

Here is an update on us...

Josh is the Director of Human Resources for the City of Marble Falls, TX, which is about 45 minutes west of Austin. He loves his job and feels challenged by it every day. We live about 30 seconds from his work. We are in a two bedroom apartment that is very nice, but we are SO ready to buy a home of our own. We've started looking, so if you know anyone who wants to sell us a million dollar home in Marble Falls, TX for $100,000, let me know. hee hee

I stay at home with Lincoln, our 1 year old son. I'm thinking of going to school to become an esthetician (sp?) so I can pick at other people's faces, instead of my own. Josh just hopes I'll stop picking on/grooming him too. Not a chance.

Lincoln started walking the week before his birthday and hasn't stopped since. He had to "re-learn" walking with shoes over the last week, but definitely has the hang of it. He has been the biggest blessing to Josh and me, in bringing our family closer to each other and to our Father in Heaven. He makes us smile every day, even when he's fussy or, as they say in Australia, being a "Sookie-bubba" (whiney mama's boy).

We have two cats, Bevo (7 yrs) and Chopper (3 1/2 yrs) who we love on the rare occasion when they are not scratching our couch, crying in the middle of the night, or chasing each other around and digging into the apt. carpet. We can not WAIT for them to be outside! Did I mention we need a HOUSE!?!?! I think it will be better for ALL of us.

As of this month, we are also trying for another kiddo. It took us two years to get pregnant with Lincoln, so we're going to start a little earlier, just in case. Hopefully we've solved the mystery of my "infertility", which wasn't anything more than something wasn't open when it should have been (I won't go into any more details, thankfully.) So keep your eyes and ears open for a Smith Family announcement, but not any time soon, I don't think.

Okay, well if you didn't know anything about us, now you do. And if you knew us already, now you wish you hadn't!! hee hee. We look forward to keeping in touch with as many of you as possible and hopefully rekindling those past friendships!!!

Lots of Love,


  1. Welcome to the blogging world Lace! Yeah..I'm so excited. I'm your first visitor to post a comment. Do I get a prize? I can't tell if Lincoln looks more like you or Josh. He must be a good mix.

  2. WHOOHOO!!! SO EXCITED!!! I am looking forward to seeing so many pictures and hearing more of what y'all are up to! {{{HUGS}}}

  3. I'm so glad you've joined the blogging world! :) Jacob (my youngest) has been having fun sitting on my lap looking at the pictures of Lincoln. Blogging becomes addictive and there is actually a site that lets you make a "blurb book" out of your blog pages, so you really can keep it as a journal if you want to :)

  4. Awesome, awesome, awesome! LOVE it! That Lincoln is so cute, and I think he is a mini-Josh ~ that's my opinion :>) LOVE and Miss you MORE!!! Mama Mary :>) . . .

  5. Lacey, such a cute blog, congrats. I'm so glad you have joined the world of bloggers. Lincoln is getting so big, what a cutie. Glad you are all doing well. Love ya Nat

  6. Just stopping by to say Hi! I happened to stumble across your blog :) Good luck with the house hunting...we've been at it for a year!
    btw...did you know you can get your blog bound at www.blurb.com?
    I use our blog as a family journal, and write in my own on the side :)
    Good luck with EVERYTHING ;)

  7. What a cutie patootie! I can't believe this is the first pic I'm seeing of him.

  8. I love your blog. I need to do the same. So happy for your friends...they finally got their baby!!! Miss you!
