How Time Flies

Wow! I know it had been a while since I last wrote an entry but I had no idea it had been this long!! So many things have changed! I guess I will start from the beginning.

Gabriel started preschool and he absolutely loves it!! We couldn't afford to keep him in gymnastics right now but he just started teeball and his second practice is tonight! He loves that as well and his first game will be this weekend (I think) which should be very interesting.

The biggest thing that has changed is the fact that I'm now 32 weeks pregnant and due June 1st!! We are having another little boy and his name is Lachlan Arthur. Gabriel is absolutely thrilled to be getting a little brother and has already shown me what an amazing big brother he will be. Things have been a bit hectic trying to get everything ready for Lachlan's arrival but his nursery is finally done! I cleaned out my car last night and my hubby and I started talking about when we would have to put the carseat and stroller into the car in case I go early (which I'm pretty sure I will) and when to start packing our hospital bags. I really can't believe that in 8 short weeks, I will be the mommy of two amazing boys!!

We got maternity pictures done and this one is my favorite!! It's amazing how quickly these past 32 weeks have flown. It seems like yesterday when I excitedly told everyone we were expecting again! And now, in a few weeks, we will be getting everything ready to bring our second little man home with us.
Gabriel will be turning 5 on May 5th and then I'm pretty sure that Lachlan will be born at the end of May instead of in June...and if that's the case, May will be a very crazy month for us from now on. Because I got pregnant, I didn't get another job so I could stay home with Lachlan like I did with Gabriel. Josh has changed jobs a few times and might actually be getting another job soon that will (hopefully) be very beneficial for us.
My dad now lives in South Carolina for his job and my mom might be moving down there a few weeks after the baby is born to be with him...he comes home on the that's going to be really difficult because I'm close to my family. And we are coming up on a year that Tyler has been home from overseas and that makes me nervous because they could send him back. If my parents are both living in SC and Tyler goes overseas right after Lachlan is born, I'm going to be an emotional wreck!!
So that's basically everything that's been going on in my life...well, the big things at least. I hope you all are doing well and I will try to write more later. Although, it might not be until after Lachlan is born and then I will have baby pictures to post! Yay!

Up To Date!

So, I haven't written in a little while so I thought I would post a little update.

My brother Tyler is home from overseas! He got home safely at the end of May and life seems to have picked right back up where we left off. Hopefully, he won't have to go back overseas for a long time, but we never know.

Only July 7, 2012, Josh and I celebrated our five year wedding anniversary. I can't believe we've been together for so long, and (really) I can't believe we made it five years. In the long run, five years doesn't exactly seem like a long time, but to a married couple, five years seems like forever! We've had our ups and downs...mostly downs...but we are closer than we've ever been and working through things better than before. We know we have a long road ahead of us, but we're doing it!

I took Gabriel to his first gymnastics class this week and he absolutely loved it! I've been wanting to get Gabriel into gymnastics for a while now because he is always flipping and swinging on things and balancing...he's a natural...but I had to get Josh used to the idea. He thought gymnastics was girly, but I finally convinced him to let Gabriel try it. We are also going to get Gabriel in teeball or baseball as soon as we can because that's another thing he absolutely loves (and he's really good too).

Also, Gabriel might be starting preschool this year. We hoped to get him into the Christian Academy I was working for, but we can't afford it, so we are having him screened at the end of this month to determine whether he will be going to preschool this year or if we have to wait until kindergarden next year. If he does start this year, I'm going to be getting a job (which I'm very much looking forward to), but I'm not actively looking right now until I know for sure whether he will be starting or not.

I've been working on the fourth part of my Four Kingdoms series, but it's been slow going. I've also been working on another novel of mine and I have almost 40,000 words so far. I'm very proud of what I have so far with that and I can't wait to finish it and my Four Kingdoms series and really focus on editing it and getting it ready to have someone read them all. A friend of mine and I have been discussing the pros and cons of self publishing and every other alternative, so we'll see where that takes me.

Well, I suppose that's everything that's really been going on in my life for the most part. Until next time...

I feel so old!!!

My baby boy just turned 4 years old!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is one of his presents! His birthday party was superhero themed because he is a complete and total geek (just like his mommy and his uncle and his Poppy and his Nay)! All of his presents were some superhero or another and...surprisingly...he didn't get any repeats. He got Thor, Iron Man, Spiderman, and Flash action figures, Hulk hands, a plethora of superhero clothes, and much much more!! And he had a blast!

My husband and I decided to get him one big present that we knew he wanted and we knew no one else would be getting for him...

And he loves it!! This is his (girl)friend Malia with him in his new ride and cool new Batman shades! I can't believe how grown up he is!! I know I'm only 23 years old, but I feel so old the older he gets hahaha.

But he sure is a cutie!

So, I finished the first rough draft of the third part of my Fantasy Series...

They are short...not a novel by themselves...but I had planned on having them all together to make one novel with three parts...and so far, combined, I have almost 100,000 words.

They are far from being finalized, but I am very excited and proud of myself for getting this far!!

Four eyes!

Yup...I'm a four eyes once again. I wore glasses ten years ago for one year and then I didn't need them anymore because the problem corrected itself...but I need them once again.

What do you think? Can I pull them off?

I guess I can't be a real bookworm without having glasses, right? At least I fit the stereotype now haha.

I know I haven't been able to write very much on here since I don't have internet, but when I do write something, I get no feedback. So I have a task for all of my followers.

If you read my blog at all, please just leave me a comment on this entry so I know some people actually read this...if I don't get any responses, I'm not sure what the point is of keeping a blog that no one reads.
