9 Months

I have survived 9 months of Mommyhood!!!. I absolutely LOVE being a momma. I love all the help and advice I have been given. Some I just smile and nodd at, and some advice I really take to heart. One thing I have had to work on these past few months is being ok with accepting help and asking for help. It is not easy. Especially for me. I am very independent person with a can do attitude. Sometimes I can't do and I have had to come to grips with, that it's ok. I posted one time on my FB for someone to come get my laundry, because in my mind at the time I could not fathom doing it. My REALLY good friend Kristin without hesitation came over, picked it up and did it at her house. It was such a blessing, but I felt bad that someone else was doing my work. I HAD to get over it. Sometimes we just have to let God work through people to give us a hand on this journey of mommyhood. If someone offers me help..TAKE IT. If they didn't mean the offer they will never offer to you again.. lol. It does make life a little easier, I have to say :)

Sassy my sissy

There has been alot going on lately and it has been emotionally trying. I am trying to keep my head up and move forward, but sometimes it's hard. Long story short my sister, who has lived with us, has moved back to NY. It's going to be alot different around here. Her smile, big personality and everyday presence is going to missed terribly. She is not only my sister but one of my friends. We have been through so much together and have grown closer because of it. 2011 has not started out very well, but I believe God has great things in store for both my sister and I. Even if it is in 2 separate states. Gotta love the military.

I Carry Your heart With Me

i carry your heart with me
(i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it
(anywhere i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear no fate
(for you are my fate,my sweet)
i want no world
(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

Lord, give me the strength..

This week has been very trying. I have wrapped myself in God for strength to get through the pain and disappointment. This particular situation is draining me emotionally and physically like I have never been before. Sometimes you think people should be a certain way and when they are not it hurts. I just want it to be over with so I can move on. Everyday seems to be getting worse and worse. I thank God for the people He has strategically place around me for support. I asked for a better support system for 2011 and I have gotten it. If I didn't have these people around me supporting me, I would be in the nut house for sure.SO thank you. :) There is no worse feeling than feeling like you have nothing or no one to turn to.  I know God likes to restore so I am counting on that to happen, but until then, I wait. I wait on His timing, His plan and pray for strength until then.

Bring it on!

After having my husband home for 11 straight days he is back to work today and my sister {whom I have guardianship of} Is still visiting NY. So it is just me and the boog tonight. To top it off they are on 12 hour shifts. Way to ease back into the work schedule. That's the military for you. It's kind of a boring uneventful night, and I am really missing hubbs. I don't know what I am going to do when he goes away for 2 months for work. ugh! It is going to be hard on all of us. He is going to be missing Isaac's first birthday which really bums me out. I don't think the majority of America understands how much military members and their families sacrifice, and the events they miss out on to keep this country safe. With that said I am a superwoman and God gives me the strength everyday to get out of bed, take care of my family, support my husband and his work. So bring it on :0)

Feathers Feathers..EVERYWHERE

I got this urge to clean the house today from top to bottom. It was like a spring cleaning, but .. ya I know. It's not spring. It felt like spring. It was 65 degrees! So I wash our sheets and pillow cases. My husbands pillow has literally 5 pillow cases on it because it is a down pillow. I take all the cases off... and feathers went everywhere. I wish he would just throw the thing out, but it's his favorite pillow. :/ So what can I do. There were feathers LITERALLY all over the house. Highlarious. On a high note the house is clean :)

Happy New Year !

 So I have revamped my blog and am going to do my best to maintain it, but as I am sure all you mommies out there know, it can be hard to find time sometimes. With that said, Happy 2011!

A New year and a new start! I am very excited to see what 2011 brings my family and I.
 This morning was very eventful. I woke up and our lab Jack was standing by his water bowl and I noticed it was empty. I fill it up and he started drinking. I was still half asleep, so I didn't realize how much or how fast he was drinking. He stood on my carpet.. not the hardwood floor , and proceeded to throw up. I couldn't deal with it, having not been feeling well to begin with. Called/ Screaaamed for my hero to come save me. My husband came in and without any hesitation cleaned the throw up. I took our 8 month old son Isaac into his room for some playtime since crawling in the living room was not an option at this point. I smelled something, which I assumed was the dog's wonderful gift to us on the living room floor. You know what they say when you assume, as my son crawled on his floor I noticed HIS gift to me allll the way up his back. Yes, it was a VERY messy diaper. When all was said and done, I had to sit back and laugh. My mom said it HAD to be good luck. We shall see :)
