10 Months!

Next month is Lucy's FIRST BIRTHDAY! I can't believe it. The year has gone by much too quickly. It really seems like she has gone from a newborn to this little person in record speed. She's sharp as a tack, and has picked up some "words", knows a few signs pretty well and is always investigating something. She is turning into a little lady right before my eyes.

     The past year has been tough in so many ways. The third semester of school nearly killed me, and then adding in trying to keep up a house, stay on top of bills, and feed my family I am toasted. I feel like I missed so much because I was so busy. I have pictures, but not as many as I like. I have some video but not nearly as much as I took with Roxas. If there is one thing I would do differently looking back at Lucy's first year of life it would be to write down more, document more and make more time for family. Now that things have settled a little bit I'm enjoying my time at home even more. I still work as an extern a few days a week which has been bittersweet. I love my job and caring for patients but I love being a stay at home mom too.

     We are getting ready to go on a trip to Colorado for a friend's wedding and we will be away from the kids for FIVE days. That's right. FIVE. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. I look forward to not hearing, "mom, mom, mom, mooooooooooooom, mom, MOM!" nearly constantly but I will miss their cute little faces and nighttime snuggles. I will be praying for my parents who get the rough task of wrangling the two for those five long days too. That's no easy task for sure.

      Life is still crazy but at least it's a little less so, at least until school starts again in August! I've already started planning Lucy's party and I can't wait. I've settled on a Princess theme and my imagination is running away from me with all the great ideas I've seen on Pinterest just last night. It will be a fun time for sure.
