Long time, no post.

Just a short update, not too much detail.

Moved to York, SC, trying to get back to NC since my mom decided to skip out on our lease. Long story?

Abby is almost 11 months old. Brooklyn will be 3 soon.

DH got a new job shortly after my last post, which is going alright. Currently looking for a better paying one, though.

Friends staying with us as well until they leave for their station in Germany for the Army.

Not alot of time for blogging obviously. Maybe more tomorrow :)

Two beautiful healthy daughters.

Having a place to call home.

Awonderful husband who adores me.

Never being lonely!

Kids that sleep well at night, most of the time.

Family that is loving and supportive.

Unending smiles from Abby Grace.

Listening to Brooklyn's sweet voice all day!

Of Quesadillas and Pirates and Non Napping Babies

Ugh. I feel sick. I made Brooklyn and I a cheese Quesadilla for lunch. I think I used too much cheese. *Insert green about to puke smiley here*

Brooklyn LOVES this Backyardigans Pirate Treasure episode. I'll admit it, it's got some pretty catchy songs. ARRRR! We bought her the singing "Uniqua" Pirate Doll that goes along with this episode. It's pretty much how I know she's up in them morning. I hear that thing singing in my room, with a fan on through her closed door. It's LOUD. Apparently "You can't be a pirate if you're sitting in your seat" Why is that? Pirates don't sit?

Anyways... things are going well with Abby. She's getting chunky and apparently going through her 3 month growth spurt. The kid is eating like it's going out of style. Even at this very second, she is making those " Excuse mwah, I'd like to partake in some boob now" noises. BRB.

Ok, maybe she'll be contented just sitting on my lap. *waits for screaming and thrashing* So far so good.

HA! This show is funny. It definitely has some adult humor in it. Here's an excerpt.
"What do you do with a scurvy pirate? Raid their ship and then hotwire it!" How do you explain what hotwiring a ship is to your kid? Seriously.

Well, tomorrow is Turkey Day. Also known as "Try to compromise and make everyone happy by not having any say in what time dinner is" Day. My Mom isn't cooking a Thanksgiving dinner this year because my Dear Sister isn't going to be spending it with our family. She's coming for dessert, so dessert is all Mom is doing. I'm fine with that I guess. I mean, Christmas is going to be a big deal this year with lots of out of town family coming in. So, we shall eat Thanksgiving dinner with my husband's parents. This could get interesting.

On another note, Abby can now fit into Medium Fuzzi Bunz :( She's getting so big!

I'll leave you with some pictures of the girls from this morning's diaper change, and a few of Abby chilling in our new ring sling.

Of Life, or something like it

I love this life. No, Seriously!

Why do people always make comments like "Wow, you must have your hands full!", or "Better you than me!". My all time favorite comment came from my mother a few weeks ago at Target. Both kids were fussy and/or crying and she looked at me and said "Yeah Amanda, why don't you just have more kids?" Kids cry. I wasn't unnerved. What warranted that comment? Just because my children are 20 months apart doesn't mean it is an impossible situation! I wouldn't trade it for anything.

When my oldest daughter runs up and gives our baby girl a sloppy toddler kiss, It makes me smile from the inside out. I can't wait to have more children, God willing. Just between you and me, I already miss the feeling of a little life growing inside of me. It is God's WILL for us to have more children. I just feel it in my heart. I, in NO way, feel like our family is complete as it stands right now.

Anyways, I hope this will become a place I can ramble and complain and rejoice all in the same post.

I'll leave you with some sisterly love, and one of her royal cuteness, just for good measure!
