It has been since April…APRIL that I last published a blog post. Mainly the reason behind this is simple; motherhood. Between everything going on in my life, blogging has been pushed to the back burner to try to focus on more important things. I am going to try my best to start documenting things again, because it was always a nice reminder to look back and see what happened/how I felt/etc. With that being said, this blog post is nothing major… mainly a simple life update on my family and I. If you don’t care how we are doing or don’t want to read the boring details of how cute Archer is… then head up to the top and click that X button.. cause sadly that is mainly what this blog will be about.
Let’s start off with Ty… Ty is currently almost in his second year of Electrician school. He is passing with flying colors, and literally doesn’t have to study for one test.. or his final. He just passes them and moves on.. (Like why cannot I be more like him?) He is currently framing houses for Ivory Holmes and while it is extremely hard work (mainly in the summer, cause who wants to lift wood in 110 degree weather?) he really does enjoy being outside and learning more each day. He can literally build anything, I get these crazy ideas for him to build furniture and he looks at me like I’m completely insane, but whatta ya know… couple weeks later its built! I cannot wait to share our latest project, but that is for a different blog. He sells some furniture publicly here and there but between school and work… he’s busy and when he has time off he likes to spend it with Archer and I. Everyday I swear I fall more and more in love with him. While he presses my buttons daily, I lay in bed and just think about how lucky I am to have him in my life. He is the best dad to Archer and I cannot sit and brag about him enough.. but ill spare everyone the gushy details.
Life for me as been divine. I love staying home everyday and watching Archer grow. I always knew I wanted to stay home with my children, but lately I have just felt the need to go back to school. My bestie and I got this spure of the moment idea to register for fall semester classes. I’d like to say it was a good idea… but who really wants to go back to school? My future plans are to “hopefully” pursue nursing since I have only 3 (2 now) classes to finish then ill be able to apply. But as we all know life isn’t so simple my future college plans may be put again on hold.. (this is coming in a later blog) Anyways, I am finishing up my fall semester and it hasn’t been that bad of a semester. I have made some new friends and enjoyed getting out of the house to socialize with actual adults.. I am still up to photography, I just cut down to once a month when i travel to Beaver. I really tell myself I don’t have time for any other activities, but i decided to sign up for a MLM business called Lipsense. Sometimes I feel worthless because even though I make decent $$ with photography, I’d like to be able to help and support my family as well. Lip sense is doing awesome and I am really enjoying the confidence it brings me.
Together we celebrated 3 years of marriage in July. I really cannot believe it has been three years already.. it doesn’t seem like a long time but again it seems like yesterday we said I do. We went on a little vacation in September to Nashville with friends. Nashville was so fun, and we enjoyed a little weekend vacation without Archie boy. We also have some exciting news… we are expecting baby #2 to make his or her appearance first part of April (i’m hoping March) We decided to not publicly announce our gender, and it has actually been quite fun to have a secret to ourselves. I decided i should start to document this pregnancy considering I am already 1/2 way through it at 20 weeks … haha oops! When I was pregnant with Archer, I was sick non stop. It was a easy pregnancy but I was sicker then heck. This round, I am never sick but this pregnancy has been rough.. (again this will come later) Between being parents to a almost two year old and trying to both do school.. we are pretty busy.
Archer will be two come February and I cannot wait to see him become a big brother. He is constantly lifting my shirt up and saying “baby” and while I don’t think he fully understands it (what two year old does?) I think its beyond adorable. He is talking more and more each day, which makes me proud to see him learn new things. He is obsessed over everything with wheels.. and if you even pass the toy department at Target, he will take off and we walk out with a new truck, but at least he has a smile on his face. He loves to play with his puppies and go outside. He thinks every single animal says mooo but honestly its adorable and who needs to know what a bear says anyways? 😉 He loves his grandma Lane and his uncle Colten the best.But mom is always #1 no matter what. He went to his first time in Nursery a couple weeks ago and loved being able to play with play dough, but church is during nap time so we cut it short and came home for a nap cause he was getting too onry. We just switched him from his toddler bed to a twin bed and its night #3 in that bed and he’s doing so good. He loves going on walks in his stroller but hates shopping in stores. Bath time is a favorite, and if you don’t watch him he will flood the whole bathroom floor. His current favorite activity is laundry. He loves to load the washer and dryer and help mom start it. Now if I could only teach him to fold it and put it away.. 🙂 He is such a boy and growing bigger everyday. It makes us so sad to see how big he is getting but so proud of all his little accomplishments. He went trick or treating on Halloween dressed up as his favorite character… Buzz lightyear! He kept grabbing candy and saying “thank you” which is my favorite word he says.
Life for us is pretty simple. We are busy, but we try to be simple. We eat out way too often and go to bed way too late but together we are holding on and making it to the best. Some days I feel like I never see Ty, (12 hours days + school) but we still get in bed together and have a nice little 5 min convo before he passes out. I will try to be better on blogging, its currently 3 AM and I cannot sleep so i figured I would do a quick little life update. But my macbook batter just said it is about to die, so ill end this blog for now.
Thanks for reading,
