Rebellious or Lazy...You decide!!!

Well, what can I say!! Been kinda busy...and lazy when I'm not busy. (hence the non existent blog updates!!) My mom says I'm rebellious for not updating...I prefer lazy!

Anyway, not too much going on. I work all the time, and when I'm not working, I'm usually hanging out with my little man. Occasionally I will go out, but most of the time I would rather relax at home, read a book, maybe catch a flick, or just hit the sack!

Colton will be 2 1/2 at the end of this month! Man, time sure does fly by! He's talking like a pro, I don't know where he comes up with some of the things he says. I'm not saying that they are off the wall, or don't fit the conversation. I'm saying that sometimes he says such grown up sentences, I don't know where he even heard them!!! Like, once he was telling me about something, and at the end of the conversation, he said "How bout that, Mom?!" It was hilarious!!! He's such a sweet boy. He plays so well, and is so good at cleaning up and organizing...we all know he didn't get that from me...definitely from my mom! But, it doesn't matter where he got it from, I just think it's great that he has it! He has two new little friends to play with every day, in the mornings at Dianne's house (she's the babysitter). Luke is 2 and Sam is 1. They are brothers, sons of a guy from my highschool that was a few years older than me. Anyway, Colt has fun with them. Not much else new with him. He loves to read, and he's started singing's so cute! He's pretty good at matching our pitch (sp). He'll definitely be musical when he's older.

As for me, I've decided, for real this time, to go back to school this summer. I plan on getting my nursing degree and being a Labor and Delivery Nurse. I'm pretty excited! I feel like I will actually be moving forward in my life, and not just working all the time to pay the bills. I'm sure some of you have felt that way before. I still have some basics to take, so that will keep me busy for a while. So, if you all will keep me in your prayers...I'm sure I will need it!!!

Caleb, Colton's daddy, is over in Iraq right now. He's been there for 6 months now, so 6 months left. Well, a little less than that. He says he should be back by the end of September. I know we will all be glad when that time gets here. Colton has done pretty well with him gone. Don't get me wrong, he asks for him every day, and when he gets upset or in trouble, he cries for Daddy. But, for the most part, he has done fine. I just keep telling him that Daddy will be home in a "puckle" (his version of couple) of months. That usually seems to work! So, keep Colton and Caleb in your prayers.

I think that's it for now. I will post some pics. Sorry it's taken me like 4 months to re-post!! This time I will shoot for 3, and then after that 2!!! jk Hope you guys are all doing well. Glad to see that all of the babies are doing wonderful, and the mammas seem happy as can be. We should definitely all work on having us a little mama/baby get-together!!!



  1. I'm so proud of you! Keep up the updates! We all enjoy them!


  2. Yippee for Deb going to school. I am so proud of you. You are going to be the awesomest nurse ever and I hope you finish in enough time to be in on my next delivery! That would be awesome!!! I'll be here for ya if you need anything or need to help you study for a major test!! I can't wait to see you cross that stage! Love you pal!

  3. It's a miracle!! I couldn't believe my eyes!! I'm in shock!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! So good to finally hear about what's going on in your life!! (Not that I don't already know, but I love seeing pictures and reading all about it!!) I'm so excited that you are going back to school!! You can do it!! Look at us Moms being ambitious!! You are going to do great!! Love all the pics!! Love you more!!


  4. Deborah, you are great. There is nothing you can't do. I am proud of you. Also, I adore the pictures. Colton is one smart and adorable little boy! He will be so proud of his Mommy Nurse.

  5. LOL @ Rachel...

    I'm so glad you've decided to go back to school! Good for you! Labor and delivery...that is SO cool. I think if I ever went into the medical field, that's in the top 3 of where I would want to be. There is nothing more miraculous. I can't believe how grown up Colton looks! I LOVE the picture of the two of you from Easter and the one of him in his camo underwear. He is such a cutie - oh and his big boy smile is adorable! :) Take care of yourself, and I will definitely be praying for you as you plan for school and take care of Colton, and Colton and Caleb as well while they are apart. :)
