Me and Tripp



I took this picture the other day as we were running out the door. Tripp thought it was funny that I was holding up the camera with my arm at us.

Update on my big boy!














Well I can not get over how one day the baby is on the blanket playing with their toys and the next day they are all over the house getting into everything. We are having fun trying to keep up with this little one and make sure he is safe. The playpen he got is a real life saver for me getting things done and making sure he is okay. We are starting to have a few bumps here and there now that he is pulling up and standing on different things around the house. He loves to try to eat his baby bed as well as chew on his brother and sister...lol. The teething has been really rough for him lately. I just hope he can stop growing so fast...but I won't hold my breath. We are just going to enjoy him every step of the way!!

Yesterday me and Andy had our 13 year anniversary! It was hard to be apart but he sent me some beautiful flowers. I love and miss you so much Andy I can't wait to be back in your arms. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. I look forward to being yours for another 13 plus years!!!!

13 Years and still going strong !

Ethaniel has his 1st Tex Mex





Okay he didn't really eat as much as play with it and make a big mess...it was a free plate for babies and I never turn down free. The major plus was he was busy the entire time me and Eliana ate our food. I love Tex Mex it is the best!!!

The Boxes are Unpacked





























Well I unpacked all 107 boxes that they shipped all the way from Africa. It took me 2 days of non-stop going but it is nice to be done with. Thankfully my mom was here and took care of Ethaniel while I got it all done.It was hard knowing we are hopefully getting it all packed back up in less than 2 months...lol. I just thank God we are not pack rats or my life would stink even more with all these moves. There are some things missing but nothing I can't live without or I can't think of it right now. We did have some damage to Eliana';s bedding it is torn and looks somewhat burned. The other thing was our TV projector. I think for all the way from Africa we are pretty lucky. I just wish so bad it had not taken over 4 months to get our stuff. The kids are so happy to have their toys and rooms set up. I took a few pictures of the house,but they are turning out really dark. I hope to get some much better pictures before I list the house in October.

1st Word


Well the fact that daddy has been stuck all the way in Africa is not keeping his little guy from learning to say daddy first. I think it is so adorable the way he says it...he melts my heart. He talks to his daddy on the computer with video and we are so grateful that he is able to see Andy's face. Funny enough Ethaniel does manage to say momma,but only when he is crying...lol.

Trying hard to crawl





My little man is trying very hard to learn to crawl...I for one am thrilled he has yet to master the crawl...lol. I just know life is going to get a lot more hectic once he does. Ethan has the Marine belly crawl down as well as a perfect yoga move called the downward dog. He is already bringing himself up and standing so who knows maybe he will just kinda skip learning to crawl. I just love watching him explore and learn. He is so cute when he is trying so hard to do something and then you just see the light bulb go off.
