A Year Of Laughter, A year of Fun,
|Oh, how the time has flew by,
Now our little WHO is ONE!!

...Oh I have a blog?

Uh yea, so I've seemed to have forgotten that I have this blog. And I feel pure hatred from the lonely pages of it. But honestly, I've had pretty much zero time to do anything extra lately.

The reason for no extra time? you ask. I'm no longer a stay at home momma, I'm a part-time SAHM! That's right, this girl has a J-O-B.  I'm finally using my medical assisting certification to bring in some cash around here. I'm working three days a week & the other days I'm here with Carson. It seems to be going pretty well so far. I've brought in my first check, I get regular "adult" convo (which I so desperately needed some days), and I get out of my comfy clothes & do my hair and makeup a few times a week at least!

Another big change...Carson is ONE!  I can't even believe that this happened! I will do a separate post on this and his party etc.

I'm going to try my darnedest to  do more blogging, now that I am busier & keep regular updates. Don't lose faith in me =) Thanks for sticking with me!

pool day

Last week Carson & I went swimming at my Aunt's & he l-o-v-e-d it! I honestly thought he would scream when I put him cause one the water is always a tad cold when you first get in & two we had "tested the waters"  a couple times before & he didn't seem too thrilled about it. But he didn't seem alarmed at all, not even a whimper when he hit the water. We splashed and sang, & he was just laaaauuuggghhhiiiinnnggg. So cute! I swear it still amazes me something so stinkin adorable came from me.

Lots going on..

There have been a bunch of goings-on around here lately & I've totally neglected my little blog. I'm trying to get my shiz together so I can do a couple posts on what I'm doing for Carson's birthday so far. Hopefully they will be up soon!

I hope you had a fun fun fun Memorial Day weekend & a short work week this week. Talk to y'all soon!

Oh yea... CUTE BABY ALERT :)

March Of Dimes Walk

Saturday we were up bright & early, drank our coffee(except Carson of course), & went walkin for healthy babies!
When we arrived there were of course tons of people & babies everywhere, it was great to see so many people supporting such a great cause. When the walk started we started down the path that began with a small field of stars with "in memory of" & "in honor of" <insert name> on them. I couldn't help but get teary-eyed looking at them & thinking about Carson's short three day stay in the NICU, the day after we came home from the hospital, at four days old (a story for a different day), and how terrifying that was, and how blessed we were to have a healthy baby boy. I also thought of the story of another bloggy momma Holly & her son Liam. Their story is one of strength, courage, & loss of a precious life & was on my mind and in my heart the entire time. I was walking for Liam's memory, all the little lives taken too soon & those who had to go through so much to be here today.

It was an amazing experience & we will definately be walking again next year!

Oh by the way, yesterday at King's Island in Cincinnati....this happened.

Bathroom Remodel!

We've been remodeling our bathroom the past couple weeks & I'm happy to say it is...fiiiiinnnaaallllyyy done! Well, almost. I still have to do a couple paint touch-ups, stain the trim & put a few decorations up but other than that, we have a full functioning bathroom again, Yay!


Paul & Carson after installing the new light & mirror:

And un-rolling the toilet paper

It was a bit frustrating, with everything being strewn about the house, & using the second bathroom at the other end of the house to potty in the middle of the night. Ugh. But in the end, I think it was worth it to not be totally embarassed everytime someone asked to use the bathroom.
