Getting back on the wagon

The blogging wagon that is. I took my R&R time and now it's time to get back to it. Things have been pretty hectic the last few weeks but have finally started settling in a bit for us. Mr. X has officially left for deployment. While it's not a full 6 months it's still just long enough for us to REALLY miss him. I've been getting a lot of people askign for specifics on where he is or when he'll be home. Please don't take offence if I say I can't tell you. It's for the guys safety and there are rules about what information we give out and stuff. I'm not going to be one to break those rules! Just know that when he is finally home EVERYONE will know cause I'll be shouting it from teh rooftop.

We are starting to get into a routine though. The kids are adjusting and Toots doesn't fight me so much on the things Mr. X used to always do. I swear those first couple days he fought me on everything. Wanted nothing to do with me when it came to the bedtime routine which was his daddy time. There was one night we were all so pathetic, Toots was crying which made me cry. then Monkey started crying because I was crying. It was a river of tears in our house. Thankfully there have been no more nights like that!

Yesterday i finally got my motivation back a bit and cleaned up the house. My room is still suffering cause there are clothes everywhere. Seriously, it looks like a department store threw up in there, just minus the crappy hangers. To solve that I've decided tonight I will start packing. All of Mr. X's clothes will go in boxes and then any of my non-maternity stuff. Things we obviously will not need anytime before the move. I figure once i get that done my room will be decent again, I'll have accomplished soem packing, and we'll have tons of room in the closet and dresser again!!'s the little things.

So we have about a month before we move. So so so so so so excited to have all that space and get settled in. i'll be busting my bottom to get things unpacked once we move. I'm hosting Novembers bookclub so I'll have like 2 weeks to get done what I can. Honestly, we don't have THAT much stuff and if I get my way we'll have less when we move cause I fully intend to get rid of things we aren't using. Seriously, I have boxes and bins in the shed that have been packed up since April of 2008. Stuff needs to go. We are so thankful that we were able to rent the house out quickly and the people who are getting it I know will take good care of the house so we won't have to worry. It's bittersweet leaving our current house. As Mr. X said as he kissed me for the last time out front before he left, it's our first house together. The house we brought our son home too. It will always be special for us and the memories we have there.

Everythign else is going ok. Baby bean is growing well and has an official due date of April 5, 2010. I have the big ultrasound scheduled for October 24th and if he/she cooperates we'll know what our tie breaker is going to be. It's sad that Mr. X won't be here for it but I have lots of friends offering to join us for the big event. Good thing the lady who does them doesn't limit the number of people who can come!!

Well I guess thats it for now. I"ll be around for more later as things progress with the bean, the house, and everythign else we have going on!!

To Be Continued:

So for those that follow my blog I apologize for the lack of writing lately. Most of you know we jsut have a lot going on lately and honestly, by the end of the evening the last thing on my mind is blogging. So Needless to say I'm going to take a breather and say........To Be Continued.

I promise it won't be that long though. Mr. X leaves for deployment very soon and then I'm sure I'll have lots to write about as I go through with buying the new hous eand renting this one. Yes, we're crazy but we LOVE the new house!! What can I's 3x's the size of what we have now. I can't wait for all that space!!

Anyways, I'll save that for another time. Until then......

I can't believe little man turns 1 today! It seems like the last year has just flown by. He's such a fire cracker too. The boy has NO FEAR. Especially in water. He'll flop down face first and come up laughing. I guess thats what happens when you spend nearly every day in the pool for the last 6 months or so.

He's still such a tiny thing though. Monkey was a total ham at this age but Toots, he's my shrimp. The other day he weighed in at 18lbs and 29". The ladies response was "well he's light but he's tall for his weight". I could have told you that with out putting him on a scale. The boy is STILL wearing 6-9 month clothes. 12 month stuff just swims on him. The positive side of that is we get lots of use out of his clothes.
Don't let his size fool you though when it comes to food. The boy can eat! He loves hot dogs, mac n cheese, chicken nuggets, yogurt, broccoli, carrots, and teddy grahams. He would probably be happy if that was all we ever gave him. When he does eat he really puts it away too. I don't know where it's going but he packs it in.
Toots over all is just a happy go lucky kid. He fusses when he's really tired or hungry but thats it. He loves being in the middle of what ever we're doing. Just like his sissy he's a nosey boy. He's also got an opinion on a lot of stuff and likes to yell it at us. I blame that on Mr. X. It's always the man's fault!
Thats it I guess. I'm sure i could think of plenty more but you get the basics.
