Meet Rhett Alderson Featherstone...

Meet Rhett Alderson Featherstone, one week old!  Rhett was born on February 15, 2011 at 1:48 pm.  He weighed 6 lbs 13 oz and was 19 in long.  He is the reason I'm starting this blog.  Based on my four years with Addie and my 13 months with Allie, I've discovered that I'm a failure at preserving memories.  So I'm hoping that this blog will someday make up for the empty baby books, blank milestone calendars, boxes of unassembled scrapbooks, and lack of pictures and videos.

Why did I choose the title "Life as I knew it"?  My life was changed forever when I met my husband and each of my children.  Life obviously got richer with each addition, but there are other changes as well.  I used to be known as a planner, a list-maker, and organized.  Now when I think of those qualities, I say, "Who me?"!  I decided to embrace the chaos when I learned I was pregnant with Rhett, when Allie was only 5 months old!  I definitely didn't plan to have babies 12 months apart!

So welcome to my blog!  Hopefully you will enjoy keeping up with my kids and our crazy life.  I guarantee you will read some funny and unbelievable stories on here.  If you don't know our family yet, you will.  It's going to be a wild ride!
