I am so upset. I don't know why but it's upsetting me.

Tonight was going to be a all girl night out and out to the beer tent and bar. Instead I changed my plans so that my friend and her husband and kids could come over. Get all excited that she's coming over and then last min cancelled. It's upsetting and hurtful. We were going celebrate my birthday and of course now we aren't. We always go and celebrate their birthdays and when it comes to mine we never do. :(

She's going to a family party I guess and it was planned last min. I understand family is more important to friends but it still hurts.

Well at least I am going to be party it up with other friends of ours and we'll be sure to have a GREAT time!!

Motherhood, Wife, and Friends

I notice that I always post about my girls and less about my husband and myself.

Not that I have much news to share. Life been busy. My work schedule has changed and I am excited about it. But a little nervous at the same time. I'll be working 2 days a week and long days. But that give me 5 days home with my girls :) I am back at the gym and loving every min of it. Been busy with the girls and getting my runs in.

Dave has been accepted to MIAT and we couldn't be more excited about it! He'll start in Oct. and will graduate in May 09 :) Then he'll be heading off to a new job and hopefully we'll be moving to a new state.

Lately, I've felt very alone. Trying to figure out where I want to go in life. I feel that my kids are walking all over me and taking me for granted. (yes i know they are 1 and 2) but they know what they are doing! Dave and I have been on different schedule and barely have time for one another. On top of that I am starting to doubt some friendships of mine. I should head back to Church because I think that is where my answers are at waiting for me. I start back up at MOMS in 2 weeks and I am happy for that. I miss my weekly meetings with other moms at my church. This year I will be Co-Leading the group with a friend of mine. It should be fun.

This weekend is my birthday weekend. Not that it's anything exciting because half of the people I know ended up cancelling on hanging out. However, I am going to make the best of this weekend. Tonight I am babysitting my friends baby so that she and her husband can get out. I can't wait since he's a newborn and a boy. Something different :) Tomorrow, I will get up and walk 7.5 mile and then head off to the gym to meet a friend for lunch and swim. After that we are having people over to hang out and chill before the summer ends :( Sunday, I'll be heading back to the pool for a bit to hang out alone. Then I am taking a friend of mine son and herself to Billy Ray Cryus. Not my idea of a GREAT concert but it will be fun since it's her son 1st concert!! Mondays plans are up in the air. I am sure we'll be doing some yard work.

Tuesday morning I'll be crying in the parking lot as Adrianna will start pre-school and I'll be turning 28! Then off to work and not sure what the evening plans are :) Hopefully my parents will want to take me out to dinner with the kids!!

Have a great weekend!

Hold on..Life going too fast

How did this happen?

How did she go from this:

To this:

and how did this happen?

To this?:

Someone needs to stop and let time sit still for a moment. My girls are just growing and going to fast!!
Adrianna is signed up for Pre-School!! I am so sad and excited at the same time. She is ready for this. I couldn't put it off for another year. She'll be going for 4 hours 2 days a week. She's more then excited. I love the school. Although it's not thur our hometown schools it's still in our area. I love that they have only 6-8 kids in their class room. Adrianna is also potty trained now :) Yeah for no more diapers but again another milestone that has been reached. She's on her way of asking Who, What, Where, Why and How? I love it and hate it at the same time. She's starting to ask people what their name is and telling people who we are. So much has changed in the last few months. Again, what happen??
Gabriella is talking in full blown sentences. LOVES to sing! Just loves it! She's counting all the way up to 10, sings ABC and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and a few more, she's into dancing as much as her sister and will be taking classes this fall. :) I am trying to find something to do with her and I while Adrianna is in school. I am looking forward to spending one on one time with her! She is right behind her sister with the Potty Training (I am in no hurry). She tells me when she is wet and when she poops. She goes on the potty after her sister goes on the potty. She loves doing whatever Adrianna does but she still is her own person. Again, how did this happen??
Please slow down...

Our Trip

After delivering a baby, we left for FL. We went to see my grandma the girls Nana. She's been having a hard time since Grandpa passed away in April and we thought what would be better then having us all down there :) Dave actually got to go this time! We had a great family trip. We didn't do anything too exciting for once. We actually swam in the pool a lot, napped, read, played at the beach, saw some dancing at the beach, swam in the ocean, got to see dolphins in the ocean (so exciting!!) and eat. Nice relaxing vacation with no plans!!

The girls got asked to go upfront!! But of course I felt rushed and my camera didn't take the best pics!! But they were up there for a good 5 mins and got to touch some of the stuff!
My husband and his goofy ass smile.
Adrianna swimming alone!!
the best pic I could get of the dolphins since they are fast!

If you've never witness a birth I highly suggest you try to do so.

I, on the other hand got to witness one last week on 07/30/2008. One of the most amazing moments ever. A friend of mine asked me to join her and her husband and take photos. At 1st I thought it was a joke. But she was serious. I am so glad I did. I am still working on the photos but I'll post some that I have anyways.

We checked in on 07/29/2008 and got some sleep. She started laboring off and on though out the night on her own!

She delivered on 07/30/08 her birthday as well. 10:02 am a 9lbs 7oz baby was born. Baby Reece! He's a doll. Next to giving birth to my kids and marrying Dave this was one of the best days I ever had! I am still high on it. It makes me want to go to school and become a nurse for Labor. However, I could never put a needle in someone :)

A bond between 2 friend, 2 mothers, and 2 women will never be the same. The bond between baby Reece and I will be something I won't be able to explain to others. I get it now. I get all of it. I know why God put us here to do this.

I thank God everyday for allowing me to be part of something I never thought I would get to be a part of. Thank you....

Don't mind me. I didn't really sleep!
