I'm gonna be an Aunt! My brother and sister-in-law announced yesterday that they are expecting their first baby. They just found out yesterday too. My brother asked if he could wake Ryan up but before I could answer he woke up anyways. So Matt took him outside and then next thing I know they're walking through the front door with Ryan holding pink and blue balloons with "gonna be a cousin" written on them lol. She went today and they said her expected due date is March 6. I'm very happy for them. Eric's brother has 2 daughters, but they live in Alaska and I've never met them. So this will be my first real nephew or niece. Funny thing is, we weren't even going to come down this weekend. Things beyond our control made us come, good timing I guess lol.

On another note, my baby is 5 months old now. Where does it go? I don't understand. I blink and he's doing something new. I turn around and he's grown another inch. Geez. My brother told me "call me when he does something real" lol. I told him after they found out that I wouldn't tell him that when his baby starts reaching out or sitting up or giving kisses, but I think I will lol.

My baby boy started reaching his arms out for me yesterday. I was going to get him out of his walker and he held his arms up for me. Oh, so cute!!!! I love watching him grow. I love seeing him develop and learn new things every day. I adore his beautiful blue eyes, and his flirty little smile. I love him!

Eric has to leave in a couple weeks for a month. I'm really not looking forward to that. My mom and sister came down this last weekend. They're coming back for the weekend of the 4th. We're going to the Lynyrd Skynyrd concert!!!!!! Wooo Hooo, I'm so excited! I really love 70's Southern Rock. Now, I know it's cause my dad loved it, that's all we listened to growing up. Well, job well done Dad, we all love it! lol.

I can't believe that my beautiful baby boy is getting so big so fast. He'll be 5 months old at the end of next week, where has the time gone? It's amazing how fast they grow. He's starting to sit up by himself now, I'm so proud of him! He's the apple of my eye, if you can't tell lol.

I love my husband, he's such a wonderful husband and daddy. I couldn't have asked for a better person to spend my life with. I thank God for him each and every day. He would give the shirt off his back to anyone. He's such a hard worker, so loving, caring, and understanding. I have say I'm not the easiest person in the whole world to live with sometimes, but he just takes me in his arms and tells me he loves me. Seeing him with Ryan just melts my heart. He told me the other day, "I never thought I could love another guy this much" lol. Ryan is already his right-hand little man and I LOVE seeing that. I pray that I'm as good a wife and mommy as he is husband and daddy. I hope he has a wonderful Father's Day and knows how much we appreciate everything he does for us, both those that are expected and those that are above and beyond. WE LOVE YOU!!!!

On another note, this is the first Father's Day without my daddy. He was everything that I just mentioned Eric is too. They were two peas-in-a-pod. Eric called my dad dad, my dad called him son. Dad wanted to take Eric fishing so much, but sadly he never was up to going, so I know Dad's up in Heaven waiting at the fishin' hole for Eric. I miss him more each day it seems but life requires that you keep your nose to the grindstone. Ryan keeps me very busy, thankfully. I miss Dad with all my heart and I am SO VERY thankful that I had him for 24 years. I'm thankful that I got to spend the time that Eric had to be gone with him. I'm thankful for all the wonderful memories that I have of him and for all the stories I have to tell. I wouldn't be who I am if I hadn't had my dad in my life and I thank God that He gave me to him for the time he was here. So for those who still have their daddy's I would encourage you to call them or go see them and tell them exactly how much they mean to you. I sure wish I could.

I'm tired, I need a nap. I miss my dad. For some reason my sister-in-law thinks that we all need to know when they are going to try for their kids. Just in case any of you are curious it's 23 days now. What is that?! I don't get it. I don't want to get it. I want her to realize that my sister and I are his sisters and that my mom is his mom and we don't need to know that info. It's strange and more than a little disturbing. People.
