I can't even believe it. Not even 8 months old! It is so exciting and at the same time it makes me a bit sad because I realize that she is no longer just a little baby. She is getting to be a big girl. And it has happened so quick.
--I am just stoked I got it on camera!!!!--

I am going back to work at my serving job. I haven't worked there in two years and the boss welcomed me back with open arms and couldn't wait to put me back on the schedule. My best day serving was Sunday mornings and he even gladly gave me back my day. It was awesome.
I will start just working Sundays - every other Sunday will be a few hours (the weekends we have Swae and Seth) and the other most of the day. While I don't like the thought of being away from my family, I think it will be good for me. I think it will be good for the kiddos and Eli. I just feel that I need a little something different in my routine. Don't get me wrong. I love being a stay at home mommy and being with Skylar all the time. I love going to the gym and doing any and everything that I want. But I think I am missing feeling like I am contributing to the family. Eli doesn't really understand me going back. He feels bad, but I keep telling him it has nothing to do with him or him not doing enough. It is a personal decision for me.
I actually went in last night for a few hours. I was nervous/excited all day. Walking in I was all jittery, but then it all came flooding back and I couldn't wait to jump back in and get started. It did break my heart when I was leaving the house and Swae and Seth were bummed out and saying they didn't want me to go. But they had a great night with their daddy. And I was sure to snuggle both of them while they were sleeping when I got home.
I am anxious for Sunday and very excited. It's like starting a new adventure. The good thing? I don't have to give up my gym time! And I still get tons and tons of time with my family!

The love we share seems to grow with each day we embrace together.
Happy Anniversary Eli! I love you - forever and always!

I couldn't sign into my blogger or my gmail account. Yea, no matter what password I tried, nothing would work. I started freaking out.
All night and day I have been racking my brain and sending in to get help to reset my password. And now, just 24 hours later, I was able to somehow pull the right password out of my ass and sign in. THANK GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was stressing to the max!!
Has this happened to anyone else????

27 1/2 inches long
Developmentally she is ahead about a month and doing awesome. She got three shots and it broke my heart to see the pain in her face and the tears coming out of her eyes.
She is doing well after a little nap and playing. In just a bit we are going to go see daddy for lunch. Then home for a nap and the Shred for me!
Happy Monday Everyone!

My husband left early yesterday morning to go hunting with his dad. While I enjoy our time apart, I was a bit sad that he was leaving. The last couple weeks he has been incredibly affectionate and passionate and just...awesome. He even went as far as to write me a letter for me to read while he was gone. Yes, my husband, did such a thing. My heart melted. I miss him like crazy and am beyond ready for him to be home. Just another two hours...thank goodness. I am such a baby being home alone. Last night I woke up every hour freaking out. Skylar was in bed with me and I couldn't sleep with my back toward the door because my mind played serious tricks on me. Yes, I am that big of a baby. Oh!!!!!!!!!!! And it is official. We will be trying for one more! :) That was a big part of the letter that was left for me!!
I have been kicking ass on my workout routine. I work out no less than 5 days a week. I strive for 6, but there was one week that I missed two days. Sunday is my "scheduled" day of rest and let me tell you, I like Sundays. But I am really, really enjoying working out. I go to the gym every day at 9:30 for an hour. I do a mix of cardio and weights. And if I am not able to make the gym (their kids club isn't open all day), I am sure to do the Shred at home. I am starting to see a small difference and it is making me want to work out that much more. I love it. I love the way that it makes me feel.
Today the little princess and I went to get her pictures taken. I wanted to get them taken right when she turned 6 months and didn't - I super suck. But I got them done today and they are so freaking cute. I really need to be better about getting pictures done professionally. I have an appointment for all three kiddos next weekend. I am stoked!
Skylar is army crawling like crazy. I can't at all keep her out of the entertainment center. No matter what is on the floor around her, she goes straight there...and with a quickness. I'm not going to lie, I melt every time she smiles at me. I love, love, love when she wants me and only me. And I can't for a second believe how big she is getting.
Swae is striving in second grade. She is doing so well and she has already read through three books this year. She is incredible. She is such a fabulous big sister. The cutest thing is when she tells me to let her take Skylar for a while so that I can get some more sleep. She loves her little sister and loves doing any and everything for her. Oh and she likes to eat the baby bananas.
Sethie is doing fabulous. He is writing his own name like a champ. And we are always working on writing and learning the alphabet. He can do his name and do capital and lower case A, B, & C's. He is such a smart, loving little boy. He enjoys so much spending his days with his little sister and me. He enjoys being a big brother and is always sure to show off his little sister. He adores the heck out of Swae and learns so much from her. He wants to be just like her. I love it.
So in short, I have three wonderful little kids and a wonderful husband. In just two weeks from today, I will be celebrating my one year wedding anniversary with my husband. One year of being married...incredible.
