Time to Update!!

Here's a couple picks of Kaylin to get through all the reading to come! She is a wild child! She likes to climb onto the coffee table now and this is the face I get anytime I get the camera out. She is such a cheeseball!

Sorry its been so long! I do have some excuses I promise! Mostly its just been the usual holiday busy-ness and the one year old busy-ness, and the pregnant tired-ness. But we are also in the process of moving. Well I'm moving and Nathan's going to basic training for the army. Yep, thats right my husband joined the army. I have some really mixed feelings about it but we really do feel its the right thing for our family right now. I kinda wish this had come at a different time but thats how life goes, right? Things never happen when you want them to or how you want them to. He leaves on December 30th to Fort Benning, Georgia. He'll be there for about 14 weeks. After that he'll be back for a week or so and then we'll either get stationed somewhere or get sent to Iraq. Hopefully he won't go to Iraq right away. Me and Kaylin are going to stay with my mom and dad while he is gone. So once again we are packing our stuff and moving. This will be 3 moves within a year!

On a lighter note, I had a Dr.'s appointment on Tuesday and we got hear the heartbeat. There is actually a baby in there...and I know I still don't look very pregnant...but there is proof! This one's gonna be fiesty too, like Kaylin, because it kept kicking the monitor and moving around everywhere (or it could have been the Coke I drank an hour before the appointment????). We have an ultrasound scheduled for the 23rd so that we can hopefully find out what it is before Nathan leaves. I'll only be about 18 weeks so cross your fingers that they'll be able to see! (For my pre baby friends reading this...20 weeks or later is best for seeing the baby parts:)

Anyone wanna come help me pack?? My door is always open!! :)

Basic trainng days.... I remember those days.... man that was over a year ago!! My husband and I were both gone for 6 months and then saw each other for 2 weeks and didnt see each other for 2 months. But we are both in the National Guard because we get to be home and only drill once a month and annual training 2 weeks a year!!! But i wish him tons of luck because ft benning is real tough!!!

my only advice is don't to to much.. You know you being pregnant and all.... and the stress of getting everything done just remember to take it easy. Hopefully everything will work out for you guys. Good luck with the ultra sound to thats exciting.

Hey Sam! It sounds like you have your hands full. I am glad that Kaylin is doing well and that you and the baby-on-the way are doing well too. That is so crazy that Nathan is in the army. There are so many people that I know that have been enlisting, I wish you the best of luck. I definitely understand you having mixed feelings, I don't know how people do it. Justin and I still haven't spent one night apart, i couldn't imagine months or even weeks. I am sure things will go work out. Best wishes and please let me know if I can do anything for you :) Take care!

Sam,
Oh basic training! The Army, all I have to say is keep the faith and everything will work out. My husbands family has had the go arounds with his brother in law inlisting in the Marines. But I know that you husband will be supoortive and will always be there for you. If you need help packing CALL ME! I live basically next door. I will even take the baby and play with her for a few hours if you need me to. Don't hesitate. Ok....good luck, and dang you lived here for how long and we never met up.
