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 more...it'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!!!
Back to reality!
