Random happenings!

Life sure is busy these days...cannot believe we are in April already!!  Addy's coach pitch baseball season is underway with two games already played.  She is LOVING it!  Dusty was asked to help with some coaching and it has been so wonderful for me to watch those two together out there.  I've had moments where I've literally teared up...thankful for my sunglasses!  It's been good for Addy's confidence to have her Daddy out there with her too.

My cousin, Eric, happened to be in the area for work recently and so we got a nice surprise visit from him last week.  He came up for dinner and we tried to spoil him (and ourselves) with a yummy steak and shrimp dinner.  It's not everyday that family just happens to be in this part of the country! Haha!!  He was missing his babies pretty bad so Addy and Lila were eager to help him get his baby fix!  I can't express how nice it was to see him and get a little dose of "home"!

When we aren't working or at baseball games these days, we are laying low doing the homebody thing.  It's been beautiful weather up here lately which means we are spending a lot of time outside playing and going on family walks.

Down to 79 days until we head to TEXAS!!!!! Can't wait!

Where has the time gone?  I haven't updated this blog since July?  My goodness!

I can't possibly remember all the little things that have taken place in our world since then, so here's a little update on where we are now!

We now have an almost 1 year old and an almost 5 year old under our roof!!  Little Miss Lila Bug is growing so fast.  She is crawling, cruising, playing like crazy, following her sissy around everywhere.  She has got to be the most laid back baby ever.  Nothing phases her.  (Quite the opposite of her big sissy!)  Lila is eating just about everything in sight these days with a side of breastmilk!  (Breast is best! JK!!  Yes, I'm still nursing, and yes, I'm still pumping.  Dusty says I'm a jersey cow; I could feed all the babies in the valley lol!)  She loves loves loves to smile--the child is ALWAYS smiling.  Lila is definitely a Mommy's girl; more than Addy ever was.  If I am in the room, she is on a mission to be near me.  And I'm loving every single minute of it!

Big sis, Addy, is finishing up her last year as a preschooler at Hoops.  I can't even talk about her graduating from Hoops as a lump the size of Texas begins to form in my throat.  They are the best in the business, hands down.  What they have done for our girl and our family is...well, I don't have the words.  She will be attending Kindergarten in August at my lovely little school, Buckley Elementary!  I cannot wait to have her just a few feet away from me!!  Addy is beginning her first baseball season and her first game is Saturday.  It's the cutest dang thing I've ever watched.  She tries so hard and runs those bases with that big ol' helmet bouncing on her head...I. Die.  She is growing into the sweetest, most caring big sissy...this girl loves her baby sis with everything she's got.  In fact, they just started sharing a room and Addy couldn't wait so she could help us "take care of sis"!

The countdown is on again!  We will be heading to Texas in 90 days!!!  Woo hoo!!! We will be there about 9 days and I cannot wait.  It has been far too long!

And I get to do it all with this handsome cowboy...lucky me!
