Well, I'm not around much. Life is busy busy. Eric is in training now. It takes up a lot of time, as we all know :) Ryan will be 19 months this week. He's growing like a weed and he's so adorable. He's beautiful. I would post pictures but well my camera is broken and I haven't gotten a new one yet. He's learning like crazy and is the sweetest little boy I've ever come across. Not that I'm partial or anything. I got some news last week, I'm pregnant again. I went to the dr today and found out I'm further along than I thought even. I'm 9 weeks and 3 days and I'm due on March 26, '10, which just happens to be my brother's bday. We're super excited. Anyways, I hope everybody is doing good.

Well I had a long post typed out and lost it. I'll boil it down this time.

We're good. Been busy. I'm ready to stay home. I haven't had any seizures since April and I have an appt the 2nd of July. I'm going to see if he'll take me off the medicine they have me on. One of the side effects of that medicine is if you get pregnant it can cause fetal alcohol syndrome systems to the baby. Ryan is doing good. He's getting so big. He's almost 17 months. He's been dusting this morning lol.

We went on a cruise to Jamaica and the Cayman Islands. I don't recommend Jamaica but would definitely go back to the Bahamas. We were chaperone's on my sister's senior trip.

I have a beautiful neice. She was born May 15. She was 6lbs 9oz 20 inches long. Her name is Makenzie Reece. She's absolutely beautiful.

Eric is now a 2LT. I'm so proud of him. He starts his training next month.

My brother with is baby girl. He's such a proud daddy. He's cute with her. She looks like a dot on his chest :)

Time just flies by these days. Eric gets commissioned tomorrow, I'm so proud of him! He graduates from school next Friday. His brother will be in tonight. I just can't tell you how proud I am of him! He has worked so hard and has accomplished so much.

My baby boy is 15 months old now. He's growing like a weed. He had a checkup today and he's in the 82% for his height and the 48% for his weight. He's beautiful and I can't believe how fast he's growing. He talks up a storm and has the cutest little things he does. Eric whistles ALL the time (it's a joke with my family lol) and Ryan has picked up on that and tries to whistle. It's the cutest thing. He also folds his arms and snorts lol. He says bumma and bumpa for Grandma and Grandpa. Oh I love that little boy.

I had two more seizures on the 22. My mom stayed with me for about a week and took care of me. They have no idea what's wrong with me. I have to wait 2 months before the neurologist can get me in, so we'll see.

My brother's wife is due with their baby girl any day now. I can't wait to meet my neice! I'm kinda hoping that she waits until the 6th to come, that was my Dad's birthday, I think that would be neat.

It's been a while but thought I'd post since KBUG was asking about me :) I've been doing ok, just busy taking care of my baby. He's getting so big. He's already 14 months old. Wow! His hair is super curly and oh so cute. He brings me so much joy. Watching him grow is better than I could have ever imagined.

We got good news, we will be stationed here at least 3 more years after Eric graduates next month and goes through his training. We are flying his brother in from AK to be here for his pinning and graduation. It's been 11 years since they've seen each other. My sister is engaged to marry her high school sweetheart. They are so wonderful together and he's just an amazing guy for her. I'm thrilled. My sister-in-law will be having my little neice the end of this month or the beginning of next. I'm so excited to meet her. Her name is Makenzie Reece. I made a couple cakes, one for my brother's bday and one for the baby shower last week. At the baby shower there was a lady there who does cakes professionally. The next day she asked for my number so she can give it to people to call for their cakes instead of her. I thought that was awesome. I love making cakes! I hope it works out.

Adding to what I had to say in my entry yesterday:

On my Dad's anniversary my brother ended up coming down as well. He sent me a text and said, "I sure wish I could have Buffalo Wild Wings" I sent him one back "You could if you came down" He sent one, "OK" and rung the doorbell. It was such a nice surprise. So everyone, except his wife, were together for one of the hardest days in our lives. I just doesn't seem possible. Living a year without my Dad just doesn't seem possible. Also, Courtney, in case you still read the blog, THANK YOU so very much for your thoughtfulness! She did such an amazing thing for me. She sent me this on the anniversary:

I went to the dr Monday, it's not my blood sugar or my thyroid. Who knows? I have to go Friday for all-day testing. I hope that test comes back good and then everything will be clear. Then I just have to wait 6 months to drive again.

My baby boy will be 1 year old in 14 days. Where does the time go? He's growing like a weed and he's the sweetest little boy. He loves giving kisses. He talks all the time. He loves helping his mommy. He says, mama all the time. He's started saying "uh oh", "bye bye", and "book" book sounds like boo. He's so laid back, he reminds me of his Grandpa Tommy. Oh I just love him!

I've been very sick this week. On Monday morning I had a seizure. It was the first one I've ever had in my life. My sister and her bf were here. They called 911 and the ambulance came and got me. I was in there for two nights. I had all sorts of tests ran on me, thank God for insurance! Today I went and got more blood work done. Next Friday I'm supposed to have a prolonged EEG test done. So, I'll have to be at the neurologists office all day long. But, I think we figured out what it is. This morning I had a terrible headache and nothing was getting rid of it. I had a craving for m&m's, so we got some and my headache went away. Then Eric remembered that in the emergency room the nurse mentioned that my blood sugar was low. So I looked it up and it says that can cause seizures. My mom talked to the nurse that comes to her work and she said it sure can. She also told her that I've been extremely cold and tired for a long time and the nurse said that can cause that too. So, I'm going to call my dr on Monday and see if they'll test me for that and hopefully I won't have to have the EEG thing done.

Tomorrow will be a year since my Daddy passed away. I really can't believe it. I don't want to believe it. I miss him. I still haven't dealt with his passing. I don't want to. I miss him with every part of me. My mom, sister and her bf are coming down tomorrow. I wish my brother was too but I guess his wife's family is having a family reunion tomorrow too so he can't. Where did the year go? Why does he have to be gone? My only solice is knowing that he's in Heaven not suffering anymore. At least he's getting to roll down those big hills that he always dreamed of. So, to the best Daddy that ever did walk this earth, THANK YOU! You are such an inspiration to me and I love you more than words can ever express.
