My! It’s been a long time since I’ve posted! I’ve been a bit… busy. These two little girls are keeping my hands pretty tied up during the day, along with our friend’s baby who is a week older than Calynn. It’s like having twins, only, I get to send one of them home after 8 hours. Along with that, my families keep me pretty busy too.
Things have gotten MUCH better though since the last time I wrote. Calynn has changed so much! She’s a totally different baby since she’s seen the chiropractor. Such a sweetheart. She loves to smile and coo and make noises. Today, she was even laying on the floor and i thought she was going to roll over! She’s got some wicked leg strength! She’s slept through the night 3 nights in a row, but other than that, im still up at 3am everynight. We struggled for a while to get her to sleep before 10 but now we are sinking into a routine and can at least get her asleep by 9. Most days I feel like a walking zombie, and by the time my hubby gets home I’m either about passed out on the couch, ready to pull my hair out, crying my eyes out, or all of the above. I love that heis such a hard worker but DAMN! some days I wishe he was home at 5pm to help out.
Jo is growing like a weed. It’s so amazing to watch her grow. Her vocabulary has increased SO MUCH in just the past couple months!! That also means we have to watch our language around her because she may just slip somethin out…. she’s now sleeping in a toddle bed and I tell you what, she has seriously been the easiest kid (most days). She never once did anything naughty when we transferred her to her bed. No wonder why we ended up with another baby so soon 😉
Not only have we been super busy with the girls the past couple months, we’ve been busy with LIFE recently. My hubby’s grandma passed away at the end of July. She was battling ALS for 3 years. What a woman she was. I’m so blessed I even had a chance to know her. The whole family Celebrated her Life, instead of mourning for a long time because that’s what she would have wanted. So they had a couple parties, lit some chinese lanterns off, had a celebration of life gathering (visitation), and also her funeral the day. It was all Beautiful.
We also had Claytons five year class reunion, went to the state fair, my birthday, my sisters wedding, and most recently, labor day. Like I said, busy. September and October aren’t slowing down any either. This weekend, we are headed to the Tri State Rodeo. Finally getting to hang out with my best friends! On Sunday, it will be our first wedding Anniversary!! We plan on taking the horses to Belva Deer for the day and then hopefully going out for supper and then enjoying the rest of the night with the girls and eating our anniversary cake ( red velvet, our favorite) :).
The next weekend we are going to Chicago to see Garth Brooks!!! Woohooo!!!!!!!! It’s a dream come true!!!!!! So pumped! The next weekend we are going to see Phantom Of the Opera!!!!!! Super excoted for that too!!! The weekend after that is my sisters baby shower AND we have two wedding receptions that night!!! Then the NEXT weekend is the Girl’s Weekend trail ride!!! We are headed to Yellow River and I am so pumped! A whole weekend spent doing what I love most, being able to relax and also get a little rowdy with my mother in law and friends!!
A busy month coming up! I will try and post when I get the chance 🙂 It’s going to FLY BY! Making Memories each day!
