Trying something new...

Well believe it or not I spend a tremendous amount of time in front of the computer for work and for staying in touch with friends.  I know you all might find that hard to believe since I have been so slack with my blogging these days.

Today I decided to dedicate 10 minutes or so a day to the computer for my kids.  I know you are probably thinking what in the world is she talking about for her kids?!?!?  Everyday or as close as I can to it, I am going to write MC an email to tell her how great she is and tell her some funny things she did that day.  When Baby #2 gets here I plan to do the same for her.  That way one day they can read hundreds of emails I have written to them.

I know emails are not as cool as hand written letters, but emails are easy to do no matter where I am and I have setup a special email address for just these to go to so they are organized and together for the kids.  I look forward to the day I share this email address with them and pray to God that there are thousands of these for them to read.  I hope that one day a long time from now that when I am looking down from heaven these little love messages to them will offer them comfort in the lonley times.

So here is to dedicating yourself to the little things in life that keep you laughing, loving and living!

There are milestones everyday that we reach, it can be with our friends, our spouse, our family or our children.  This weekend our major milestone was with MC.  She is officially sleeping in a big girl bed. 

I had been dreading this move to the big girl bed for a while, I have heard more often than not that it is a nightmare!  So I took the approach well she sleeps really well in her crib, I am not going to rock the boat.  That was my way of avoiding what I was afraid of was going to be more sleepless nights and mulitple trips upstairs to get her back in the bed.  

With my belly growing and the development of two hernias which has limited the amount I can lift, I bit the bullet.  My mom had my grand-father's antique toddler bed which is the same bed I slept in when I was MC's age in her attic so this weekend B braved my mom's attic and brought it home.  MC was so excited about it, she helped me get the dust off it and polish it with furniture polish.  She asked B to take her new bed to her room so she could sleep in it!  The rest is history!  

Hopefully potty training will go this well, but I can promise you one thing, that is months away!  I am not ready for that!

Here is MC in her Big Girl Bed!  The side folds up to make a bed rail, she told me today at nap time to buckle her big girl bed's seat belt!

Here's to the little moments in life that keep us laughing, loving and living!

The Google Doodle

I love the home page for Google today.  It is so much fun!  If you have not seen it check it out.  Would list the website, but I am pretty sure everyone in the world know how to find the Google home page!

I know my post is super short today, but something is better than nothing!

My Hubby....

Hey there, I know it has been ten days or so and that is not good for my 7 wonderful followers! 

Today I have to post about my hubby.  Sorry if I get a little sappy, I think my hormones are causing me to get all sentimental. 

B and I have been together for almost ten years, our 5 year wedding anniversary is coming up in October.  At the beginning of our relationship we had the odds stacked against us. I had just graduated from high school and was headed of to Winthrop and he was settled in Mount Pleasant working for his dad's company.  

For 4 long years we stuck it our for the tearful good-byes knowing that the every other weekend thing would come to an end one day.  The long distance SUCKED to say the least, but we made it through and it made us super strong.  We had to learn to communicate and trust each other, we had no choice it was talk and trust each other or watch our relationship go down in flames.

Life with B is never dull, my husband never stops.  He is like the energizer bunny.  If I could bottle his energy I would give 5 hour energy and Red Bull a run for their money.  Most days I love it, he is vivacious and full of life, I will admit there are those days that his energy is exhausting especially being prego.  

B is not just a loyal partner in life, but an amazing dad.  It is a really cool transformation to watch when I man becomes a dad.  It is something that is so special to watch and I fall in love with him all over again everytime I watch him with MC.  It really does not matter if he is teaching her to through a ball, planting the garden with her, giving her a bath, reading her a book or simply laying on the floor watching TV together he melts my heart.  

As my husband B is tough and tender, let me explain.  He does not treat me like a weak little women, he respects my ability to fend for myself and allows me to be me.  I think this is important in a man.  He knows his place in our family and he knows mine and respects mine.  He makes no bones about things that I do around the house even if they are things that most of the time a man takes care of.  One of my favorite quotes of B "I have no clue ask my wife she does that stuff" it makes me laugh every time he says it!  This is the tougher side of B, but the tender side of B is the man that holds me close when I cry, calls just to say "I love you"and kisses me on the head every morning when he wakes up before me.  B is my calm harbour in a rough storm, he was and is my missing puzzle piece!  

Okay enough with the sentimental stuff for the day!  He is man, in his element the duck pond.  I love this picture, I also really like the fact that the beard went away when duck season ended!!!
Here's to the people in life that keep us laughing, loving and living!
