With the new addition to our family has come a lot of change; mostly in time, meaning there is none! I feel like we have lost 4 hours in every day and gained 100 new tasks. With those tasks though, comes a lot of joy...and stress and sleepless nights. ;) I don't mean to complain though. We are moving forward in new and different ways and loving it it; most of the time. Here are a few things that have taken place since I last posted:
Valentine's Day was fun. Evy got all sorts of gifts from people she loves - I think it's her new favorite holiday; besides her birthday - we'll get to that later. She got to spend time with both grandmas over that holiday and loved it. Well, except for getting the flu...I think she felt bad for throwing up on Grandma Judy, but she got better aim after that! Kyle and I spent Valentine's Day in St. Cloud at a hotel. It was nice and relaxing; with a few nerves thrown in. I had my heart procedure the following day. It was fairly painless and I only had to spend one night there. My mom and Kyle had a good time messing with me while I was waking up; knowing I wouldn't remember much. They are not sure the procedure worked 100%, but I can tell it certainly helped. Evy was over her flu by the time we got back, but passed it on to me a few days later. Icky! She later got tonsillitis; but handled that like a champ!
Evy turned 3 in the beginning of March. We had the family over for supper and had Tinker Bell ice cream cake. She was in heaven!My mom, dad, and I also had birthday's. I turned 25...booo! I had to take a new driver's license photo - boy do I look old! We did go to Mabel Murphy's for my birthday though - sooo good! Kyle and I had our 4-year aniversary. It's crazy to think of all that's happened in the 8 years we've been together - where does the time go?!
Evy got to go to attend the St. Patrick's Day parade in Miltona. She played with her friends while we waited for it to start; but then she took a digger....She got over it quickly when she started getting candy though!
We had Laney Baptized last weekend. She was so good during church, and after it for that matter. She doesn't know it yet, but she is so blessed.Laney also started smiling recently. No pictures yet - she's a slick one and knows when the camera comes out. She is getting her own personality - so much different than Evy. She's more laid back and gives us only a half smirk and holds things in. I still love it! The cooing has also started; I'm so excited that the interaction stages are coming with her...the best for me is yet to come!
Kyle started a new business. It's a little above my lingo, but it's called Mid Central Mapping. I think he basically makes variable rate GPS maps for farmers to maximize crop yield, among other things. He's pretty excited, and achieving one of his major goals in life, which was to be self employed by the time he is 25. Since he's a few months younger than me, he just made it! This makes for a lot of adjustment in the schedule as well - sometimes it works in my favor though, so I can't complain too much!
Evy got invited to her first birthday party! She was so excited to get the invitation in the mail; she LOVES mail! Then she found out it was a party for her best friend at a water park...what could be better?! I get to go with her for that tomorrow - so excited; however, I had to buy a swimming suit. :S I haven't worn one of those since before I had Evy. I thought I was going to have a break-down while I was shopping for it yesterday. I did find one that...well, it will work, I guess. Dear 'My Fitness Pal,' why didn't you have me in shape for a swimming suit yet?! Oh yes, and for the bridesmaid dress I have to fit for today! Grrr...
On another note - can anyone tell me how to program my washer and dryer to do the laundry without me? I swear I just get caught up and take one night off - then the next night, it's like I didn't do it for a week! Where does it come from?!
Okay - now that I'm done sharing our life...and venting, :) I hope you all have a great weekend!
