This could be lengthy...I want to catch up on what's been going on lately!
I think I'm starting to feel a little normal now. Things are slowing down and we are in a good routine. School is out and summer is here! Even though I work everyday, there is a calm that comes with warmer temperatures and more daylight.
Since it has been so long, I'll update in sections...
He had a great year in Kindergarten...he's officially a 1st grader! I'm having a harder time with that then him starting school in the first place.
He played Tball and did well. He's a hard hitter and throws well, but still needs some help in the "paying attention" area, but don't they all at this age!
Within 2 days of his last day of school, he took a trip to visit Hubby's brother,wife and son in KY. He spent 3 days playing hard and came home for one night before he was gone again. Gigi and Pop took him back to Atlanta for NINE days!!! He literally just walked in the door hours ago!
Swimming, bike riding, putt putt, a water park, movies, and just a lot of fun were where his energy was spent. I think mom would keep him if she could! I'm glad he had a great time and I am so thankful for parents that will take on such a busy kid, bur I'm so happy to have him back!!!
Miss Priss has been busy the last couple of months. She will be 10 months on Friday! I can't believe it. She had a great 9 month old check up and is in 75th percentile of weight and 60th of height. Who knew we could make a small baby?
She's brave. She pulls up and sits down. She wants to walk, loves the water and I am pretty sure if I just let her go, she might swim!
She's cutting a tooth. NOT teeth! Yep, just one! I'll take it. She's still got her cheeks, laughs, and smiles all the time. She's eating real food - well, gumming it best she can. She's been saying dada for a while, but has expanded her vocabulary to 'uh-oh', 'bye bye' and her favorite 'dog dog'. She fianlly has uttered 'mama' but not very often and mostly when she's mad at me - screaming it repeatedly. As much as we missed her older brother, it was nice to spend some one on one time with her. She's so laid back and go with the flow, it's super easy.
Working hard and playing hard too! He's gotten me back to the gym (ok, well not this week) but you get my drift. We've been meeting after I get off work and have quality time pumping iron together. It's been nice and relaxing. We can chat about our days and things coming up instead of trying to remember everything we wanted to say and then running out of time to say it (b/c it usually is 15 minutes before he leaves for work). We've been on some weekend trips and are trying to have more date and Family nights
I'm still loving my job. I'm getting used to managing my time better working five days and only have 2 off. It's just like riding a bike - I did it before and I can do it again. It just took me a little longer to get back up!
I hired someone to clean my house once a month and that has been a wonderful relief. I'm figuring out how to get things done during the week and also spend as much time with family and friends as possible. We've been living poolside a lot on the weekends, but I'm ok with that!
I'm working on letting the little things go! We (I) are trying to relax more and just go with the flow! I seem to enjoy myself more when I do...and the working out is helping.
I'm joing weight watchers at work this week. I kind of fell off the wagon when I started this job. I will say that I've kept all my weight off and haven't gained, but I'm stuck.Hopefully this will be the beginning of a good thing!
We are headed to the beach Friday when I get off work! I'm soooooooooooo ready for this trip. I am taking Tuesday the 5th off and will have 3 full days at the beach! And to boot, we just found out this morning we are staying with some of my in laws friends at their huge condo ON THE BEACH!!!! It will be so nice to be right there, no packing a car, driving to the beach and best of all, it will be good for naptime!
I'm going to post some recent pics of the kiddos soon!
