Bugs and Bunnies!

This week was supposed to be Baron's week off, well sort of.  He had the week off only to work on maps for the next portion of school.  The plan was for him to spend all day Tuesday and Wednesday at the library getting all 30 of them completed and then we were going to spend the rest of the week as a family and even had plans to go to Destin for the Friday and Saturday!  Plans are funny though.  When we make them, they usually don't ever work out how we plan! Instead, half of Tuesday was spent working on maps because I got some terrible sort of stomach bug! Baron ended up having to come home to help me take care of Charlie.  Stomach issues and babies are not a fun combination! Well, needless to say I passed whatever I had onto Baron.  The two days we had planned on him working on maps stretched into five! Oh well! Today we seem to be feeling better.  Neither one of us are totally back to ourself yet, but getting there.  We are keeping food down so thats good. Since Charlie had been cooped up in the house all week with his sick parents, today we got up and met some friends at the park for some pre-Easter fun.  Enterprise hosts an Easter egg hunt for all the kids in the city.  Charlie didn't get any eggs, but he did not seem to mind.  He did though get to have his picture taken with the Easter bunny! He was most fascinated with his fur, tried to pull it out! After it was all over we stayed a little while.  Ashley's 2 boys, Sawyer and Eli, played for a little bit and Charlie tried to jump out of his stroller.  In the end I decided I still don't like bugs and bunnies well I guess they are kind of cute, at least when they are holding my sweet Charlie man!   

Checking to see if it was real!

Charlie and the Easter Bunny!

I love my little man! 

Sweet Sawyer ready to play! 

Sweet little Eli sleepy after hunting all his eggs!

What's new? Oh so much!

Ok, so I know I said I was going to do better keeping up with the blog and it has been 4 months since the last post.  So, maybe I had high hopes, but oh well I am here! These past couple of months, life in Enterprise has just taken off!! Since January, Baron and I have joined a church, I have started sewing again, learned how to crochet, and most recently have been playing with cake icing, trying to see if I am any good at decorating cakes! When we moved here I prayed for friends, and God has sent me friends!! Sitting at home and wondering "What are we going to do today?" is a thing of the past!  Charlie has officially mastered the art of crawling! Scout has gotten pretty quick about getting out of the way when he sees Charlie coming. In the past week, our dare devil has discovered how to walk while pushing his walker! Oh my is he busy bee! I think with the next baby (No! I am not pregnant!) I will stay away from the caffeine! Without a doubt I can say that the little boy LOVES to play! We could have never imagined how much fun he would be.  He is such a joy and can literally bring a smile to just about anyones face. Baron finished up another portion of flight school yesterday. He made a 95 on his last check ride.  Their check rides consist of an oral test from what they have studied and a test of their flying skills.  He is one step closer to being the Black Hawk pilot he has dreamed about! If all things go as scheduled we will be finishing up and he will be graduating some time towards the end of August or the beginning of September.  Our time here has flown by. I never imagined how hard of a move it would be to move away from here.  I know when our move day comes though, there are going to be quite a few tears! From here we are not sure where we are going, we are still praying about that. This next month, we are looking forward to dedicating Charlie at church on Mother's Day and Baron and I are getting baptized!!! Both of us were baptized as babies but as adults, we have chosen to publicly express our love for Christ and affirm our faith through baptism. I wasn't kidding when I said we have had a lot going on!! No promises, but I am going to REALLY try to keep up with this thing from now on!!

We are back in the new year!

So it has been a while, but we are back! A lot has happened since the last post back in March. Our sweet baby boy was born, we moved to Alabama, Baron now has his first 5 flight hours training to fly helicopters, and Charlie is about to turn 5 months old! So lets back track a little bit. Charlie Owen was born on August 10. He weighed 8lbs 6oz and was 20 inches long. 9 days after he was born, we moved to Alabama. It was a long trip with a week old baby, but we made it! He slept most of the way so it really wasn't too bad. Its hard to believe we have now been here almost 5 months! Charlie is now growing like a weed!! At his 4 month checkup he weighed 16lbs and was 26 1/4 inches. As of recently he is sitting up on his own and is rolling like a rolling pin. Its been so neat to watch him grow. We love to hear him laugh and watch him play. Baron started flying on Monday. It is a challenge but he is loving it! Not only has it been a challenge, it has been exhausting. Ever other week he has to get up at 3:30 am to start his day. When he gets home in the evenings, we have a little family time and then its time for him to hit the books. He made a 100 on his first test last week. He has made me so proud. His busy schedule has been hard to get used to, but we are adjusting. So far though, 2011 is treating us well. Hopefully there will be a few more updates from us this year than last, so stay tuned!
