It's begining to feel like Christmas

It's begining to look a lot like Christmas! Yesterday December 21 it was 85 degrees here in Texas. Really hard to get in the Christmas spirit when you are wearing shorts and flip flops. Went to bed last night with all the windows open and woke up this morning freezing my ass off. Only in Texas will it be 85 one day and 45 the next. Fine by me though, I'm ready for it to get cold and stay that way for awhile. Of course I will be ready for it to be warm in a few months, typical person never satisified. Life is all wonderful here in the Wilcox house. Zane and Zoei are out of school for the next two weeks. So that means my days are filled with a 9 year old,7 year old,1 year old and 3 month old.... Needless to say it's pretty fun. Now don't get me wrong there are times when I wish they would all go outside and not come back in until dark, there are times when I just have to go sit outside for a minute to calm my nerves, but in all honesty I wouldn't have it any other way. Jeramy has been working his ass off. He's still considered a temp so he has been going above and beyond what they ask of him. Going in two hours early, staying as late as they need him to. Then he comes home and watches the kids so I can have 20 minutes of peace. Even though I am going to the grocery store, it's being able to get out of the house for one, and also being able to hear myself think LOL. Little miss Z is wonderful. Can't tell you how much of an easy baby she is. After my two experiences with babies I never thought it could really be this easy. There are a lot of things different in my life this time around. NO DRAMA, no moving every other month, no crazy people in and out of my life. I am settled, my first two kids are thriving, I'm married to my soul mate, a real man, a man who does what he is suppose to as far as being a good husband and being a DAMN good father. She is just so easy going, chill and goes with the flow. She is the best sleeper out of all of my kids. Zane and Zoei didn't sleep by themselves all night long untl they were 1 and 3, Zeelynn has been doing it since she was 6 weeks old. At that age she was going to sleep by 11 or 12 and sleeping till 5 or 6. Now she goes to bed by 10:30 and sleeps till 7.... I finally get to sleep in the same bed with Jeramy again. I could of started doing it alot sooner but I was kinda weirded out by her sleeping all by herself on the other side of the house. Scared I wouldn't hear her crying, but don't have to worry about that anymore. Have to admit after not sleeping in the same bed with him for 3 months the first few nights were crazy... He was flipping over on me, because we were both use to sleeping in the middle of the bed again, the heat coming off of his body was just crazy.... but I'm use to it again. Only took a week to get back in the swing of things. Let's see what else is going on. I was going to do some online schooling but for some reason I just couldn't shake the feeling of something not being right. I know that was God telling me that wasn't the place for me... I have to find something I can do online because I watch Daegan during the day and of course Zeelynn is with me ya know. I am sure God will show me what way to go and things will work itself out. .... 
God is so good and has blessed my life in so many ways... Peace Out and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!

I should blog while I have the chance. Zeelynn is currently watching Hannah Montana and talking to the tv. Daegan is asleep in my bed so if I'm going to do it I have to do it now.
Life is so good right now.... It's a week before Christmas 2010. I really haven't done enough shopping. I got the three kids we have to buy for on jeramy's side of the family and my moms done, that's it! I still have to buy 6 more things for our kids, my sister, Daegan, then Patty and Christy... and a womens and mens gift for the chinese christmas. I am going to try and knock it all out this weekend, we will see how that goes. Let's see what else. I really always thought that boys were suppose to be cheaper than girls, but Zane has proven that thery so wrong. Seriously Zoei's list this year is a Hannan montana wig, perfume, and a calculator that prints the paper.... Zane's is another nerf gun, the only one that he doesn't have, the newest one that came out which means it's expensive, another PS3 controller and another game for the PS3. Santa is bringing the newest Call of Duty game for him and for Zoei she wants a desk Chair. The things she comes up with reminds me so much of me it isn't funny. Ok gotta cut this short, my littlest Z is wanting to eat...Imagine that, she's content for 45 minutes and when I try and blog, she wants to eat 5 minutes into it. Oh the joys of motherhood! (p.s. I wouldn't have it any other way!)

what life is all about

This is truly what life is all about: Zeelynn and Daegan hanging in the crib. December 9, 2010

Our weekend getaway

I really suck with this whole blogging thing now. Daegan is a free flowing spirit that gets into EVERYTHING ~ and Zeelynn, well she is still a little baby who needs a lot of attention. I really need to take the time to blog because there are things I want to remember. Let's see what has gone on in the past month since I've blogged. Jeramy and I got away for a weekend. He has his monthly drills in Houston so I asked my mom if she would watch all three kids for the weekend. I really didn't know what she was going to say because even though Zane and Zoei are 9 and 7 and can pretty much do for themselves, Zeelynn is a lot to handle. When you haven't done a baby on a day to day basis for a long time it can be overwhelming. I was so excited when she told me that she would. It was the first time since I was 7 months pregnant that we got to get away. Even so being that pregnant wasn't that fun. I mean it was good to get away but at that point in pregnancy you are just miserable LOL So this time around I was back to having my normal body, feeling really good about myself, and I got to be alone with my husband all weekend. Jeramy didn't get off work till 6:30 Friday night. by the time we packed up the car and got gas we didn't even get on the road till 7:30. We checked into the hotel at 11:30. He had to go to the base during the day so I just chilled at the hotel, watched TV slept....felt so good not to have to get up because someone was crying, or hear mom Zane did this or Zoei did that. I met up with him for lunch.... Then Saturday night after he got out of drills we went to the movies to see the new Harry Potter movie.It was like a movie Tavern place. So we ordered chips and queso, popcorn and some long island ice teas. LOL After the waitress brought our stuff out and left for a minute she came back and said sir let me know when you get done with that long island because someone just bought you another one. We looked around like who.... she never said so we never found out. Just like when it happened at Chili's and those people paid for our whole meal, we were in shock. Sunday we got up and I dropped him off at drills. Went back to the hotel, got ready and packed everything up. I met up with him for lunch again, he went back to the base and I went to the mall. He wasn't going to get out of there till 3 at the earliest so I had some time to kill. I walked around the mall, then went to Walmart and walked around there.... finally at 2:45 I was like I really don't have anywhere else to go, so I just went to the base and sat in the parking lot. Jeramy came out there and told me he would get to leave after they finished with the helicopter. He ended up getting out of there at 3:10 and we were back on our way to reality. It was so much fun. I realized that Jeramy knows a lot of just random shit, and can actually talk for a LONG time. I drove all the way down there Friday night and we talked the whole four hours down there. There was not a minute of silence....... It was so good for my soul. It was just want I needed. So glad that I married my best friend

Loving my life

I'm really ashamed that it's been almost a month since I've blogged....There are so many things happening in my day to day life that I don't have the time to blog anymore ;(  I use to post one everyday and then it got to maybe a couple times a week to now only doing it once a month. It's like when I do have a time to breath I catch a nap, or do the dishes or laundry or just sit on my ass and watch tv.
Let's see what has happened. Halloween was fun. Jeramy was actually here this year instead of being in Virginia which was fun. Zane was an army man, for the 5th year in a row lol. Miss Zoei was a spanish princess...she is such a beautiful little girl. My littlest Z worn an outfit that nana bought for her. It was black and orange stripes with bat feet and said my first halloween. We took the kids around my moms neighborhood like we have done since they were born. Love the fact that I use to walk those streets when I was a kid with my parents and now I get to do it with my kids. My Zane man is kicking butt in school. Last report card he got all A's and B's. His teacher is so precious. She's young and still has that energy and excitment for teaching kids. She isn't like the teachers at Corey that are old and just want to dope your kids up on ADHD meds. Zane still takes his pill but it's just enough to calm him down to focus. He can still eat on it and still has energy to do stuff. Zoei Cole is something else LOL. Last report card she got straight A's. She still gets in trouble for talking and being the little social butterfly that she is but who cares. As long as she is doing her work and making A's I can't complain. She has been a little violent this year. Wonder where she gets that from????? It's happened 3 times so far. First time she hit a boy with a book upside his head. The teacher said it wasn't like she was pissed off it was just playing around but still she hit him upside his head. The second time she had drawn a picture on the dry erase board before school started and wanted to show the teacher. Well this boy decided that it needed to come off so he went up there and started erasing it. Zoei took it upon her self to slap his hand away. The third time she didn't get in trouble at all. She was riding the bus home and was talking to another girl. Well there is this girl that lives in our neighborhood that thinks she runs everything. This girl didn't like the fact Zoei was talking to one of her friends so she slapped Zoei in the face. Instead of Zoei sititng there in shock, or crying she stood up and not only slapped the girl across her face, but she head butted her also. LMAO!!! I have always told my kids from day one if anyone ever puts their hands on you, hits you kicks you whatever the case may be. If they put their hands on you, you better beat the shit out of them. Maybe that isn't the "right" thing to tell them to do but I don't want them to ever take that crap from anyone. They know they can't go around starting crap with people and starting fights, but if someone takes it to that level then they better kick their ass. She didn't end up getting in trouble at school for it. I don't know if the bus driver just never said anything to anyone or what really happened but I never got a call or a note sent home from school. Zeelynn is just precious. I'm thinking that God said to himself since April had such a hard time with Zane and Zoei, I'm going to give her the easiest baby in the world. Honestly she is two months old and has only had 2 nights that were bad. Even while still breast feeding her she started sleeping through the night at 6 weeks. She goes to bed at 11 and sleeps till 5 or midnight and sleeps till 6. There have been a couple nights of her getting up at 4:30 or somewhere around there but that isn't bad at all. I still get 5 or 6 hours of straight sleep in the middle of the night. Her random smiles and coos make my heart smile from the inside out. She is to the point now where you can talk to her and she tries to talk back. She moves her eyebrows up and down like she totally understands what you are saying to her. She smiles the biggest smiles. We have switched her to straight formula. It got to the point where I could only pump 4 times a day and I was only getting between 2-4 oz. Well she eats 5 or 6 oz at a time. I lasted two months with her which is longer that I last with Zane and Zoei. Zane I lasted 6 weeks, Zoei I lasted 3 so I'm pretty proud that I lasted two months with Zeelynn.
My life is so good right now. There have been some ups and downs for sure but for the most part life is wonderful. I know in my heart of hearts that God is in control of everything and that everything happens for a reason. God will never fail me, may make me get scared and bring me to my knees but He always comes through. Peeks and Valley's in life build our character and make us stronger human beings.

catch up blog

Can't tell you how wonderful my life is right now. Ok it has been for the past five years but having Zeelynn brought in a whole new love for life. Words can't describe how much I love my husband and children. They are my world.... I have a man who gets up and goes to work everyday to provide for our family. I have two big kids that amaze me with their passion to go, do, be, and see everything. Their hugs and kisses make my soul smile. And I have this new little bundle of joy who gives me these random smiles that fill my heart with so much love. Zane Zoei and Zeelynn are such good kids. I am so thankful to the man upstairs that I am where I am in my life. Never in a million years would of dreamed that life could be so fullfilling. My days are filled with pumping, feeding, dirty diapers, spit up and those precious smiles. And that's just from Zeelynn. I also get to spend my days with Big D, Bruiser, Boogie which ever nickname you choose. Love the way he scrunches up his nose when he smiles, the way his eyes get so big when he hears a truck, the way he gets jealous of me holding Zeelynn....wouldn't trade it for anything. Thankful, blessed, greatful....I could honestly go on and on. I finally feel like my life is complete. I had Zane and Zoei and for a long time didn't want any more kids. Then found Jeramy and fell in love all over again. For a while the three of them were all I needed. I got to grow as a person, as a mother and I had to re-learn how to function in a NORMAL relationship. You can ask Jeramy when we first got back together when we would not agree on something I would automatically get in his face, yell scream rant and rave...took a long time to figure out that I wasn't going to get  a reaction out of him like that. I had to teach myself how to sit down and have a normal conversation, how to argue the right way lol.....Jeramy and I went back and forth on the subject of having a baby and finally 4 years later we decided to go for it and a year after getting my IUD taken out we have this preicous little girl. I am married to my best friend, my soul mate, and I have the three cutest kids in the world. Complete.... my life is complete

Partial blog

It's been so long since I've blogged...kind of ashamed of myself lol. Can't knock me too hard though, I did just have a baby a month ago. I can't believe how fast time goes, Zeelynn will be a month old tomorrow. I have to say that God blessed me with such an easy baby this time around. I was 18 when I had Zane so I wasn't prepared mentally, emotionally or any other way. It was the biggest slap of reality when I brought him home from the hospital..... Duty calls so I will have to finish this later

Zeelynn's birth story

I am on cloud 9 right now. It's our second night at home with Zeelynn. Zane is spending the night at Marco's house, Jeramy is playing his game, Zoei is laying in my bed watching TV (probably asleep by now), Zeelynn is sleeping in her crib and here I sit on this computer. What should I be doing? I should be sleeping while Zeelynn is, but I'm so excited about life right now I can't calm myself LOL Wanna here her birth story? 
I was scheduled to be induced Wednesday morning at 7am.But I had to call at 6 to make sure there was a room for me. I called and they said they were really busy so for me to call back at 7. I thought well I have an hour so I'll take a hot bath. Jeramy comes in there about 15 minutes later and says you know we are going to be late? So I told him about the conversation I had and he said she had called back and to come on it. We get to the hospital about 7:30, it was raining cats and dogs to it took a little longer. By the time I get in my room undressed, they check everything they needed to check, and started the meds it was 8:30. Not longer after that my dr came in and checked me and broke my water. He said I was 3cm dilated and he would check me in a little bit. By 10:30 I had already gotten my epidural. The nurse Lauren checked me again at 11:30 and I was 6cm. She started saying if we have this baby by lunch you can eat, I was like hell yeah! You know how you can't have anything to eat after midnight which is just cruel for a pregnant woman LOL.  So I called my mom and she went and got the kids. Her my dad, my sister and nephew came up to the hospital and we were just sitting in the room talking and bullshittin like we usually do. At about 2:30 my sister and mom were going to leave, take the kids to my parents house and then go to hobby lobby. I gave everyone kisses and hugs because we thought we were going to be there for awhile longer. Lauren came in and said I need to check you. Everyone went out in the waiting area just to hear the news before they left. She checked me and I was 10. Jeramy was on the phone with his mom trying to tell her how to get into the room. I was like um baby, she can't come in here he asked why? I said cuz I'm a ten and we are going to start pushing. His eyes got so big and said mom, you aren't going to be able to come in here cuz she is about to start pushing. Jeramy went out and got my mom and she came in and I told her that I was a 10 and I was going to push. She said I guess we aren't going anywhere LOL Lauren got everything set up in the room and said we are going to do some trial pushes. She told me when I was having a contraction and I pushed, she said ok stop pushing your baby is crowning. I had to lay there with my legs together and not push. Thank God for epidurals cuz I couldn't feel a thing. My dr comes in and gets ready and tells me when my next contraction was coming. You know when you have a contraction you push three times through it. Well I pushed once, then twice, and with the third push she was out. Jeramy happened to look down while her head was coming out and he just closed his eyes and looked up , the nurse said dad, are you alright? LMAO! So Miss Zeelynn Nautica made her grand arrival at 2:51pm on September 8,2010. She weighted 7lbs 2oz and was 20 inches long. Just precious...there isn't a word to describe how you feel when you finally get to lay eyes on this baby that has been inside you for 9 months. Just amazing. A Miracle and gift from God above.

Night before Zeelynn's birth

I honestly can't believe that tomorrow is the day...Seems like I have been pregnant for so long, but then again it feels just like yesterday that I was checking the test to make sure I really was seeing two lines.Tomorrow she will be here: TOMORROW SHE WILL BE HERE!!! Am I ready? Do I really know what I am getting myself into? Of course I'm ready and know what I am getting myself into, but with it being 7 years since I've done this I am wondering....You remember some of the pain, but your body blocks out a lot of it. Why do you think women have multiple children. If there were no such thing as an epidural I don't know if I would of ever done it again LOL Hats off to the women that can do it without drugs, but I am not that woman. I find myself trying to rack my brain, trying to remember all the little things. I am so excited, nervous, anxious, happy, blessed...any and all emotions I am feeling right now. I am doing the last load of laundry right now so that I can pack my bag. LMAO Nothing like putting it off till the last minute huh? There really isn't a lot that you need to bring cuz the hospital has most of it. I'm just bringing clothes to come home in shampoo tooth brush the necessities, bringing 15 outfits for Zeelynn and bows galore LOL Oh and Jeramy's clothes for work on Thursday. Anyways it's 10:15, I'm going to go finish up what I need to get done and then I'm going to jump my husbands bones for the last time for a few weeks LMAO, Yes I did just say that!

Good news dr appt.

So I went to the dr today and got some good news. Last Wednesday I was only dilated .5cm and he flat out told me I wasn't having a baby that week. I went in today and still haven't gained any weight. Holding strong at 25lbs. Pretty crazy because with Zoei I gained 37 lbs. He said she is measuring just right and then he checked me. I am now dilated to a good 2cm and everything is softening up. I will go in next Wednesday and they are going to do a songram to see how big she is and he is going to check me again. Then if I still haven't gone into labor myself he set an induction date of Sept. 8th!!!!! WHOOOO HOOOOO Ashley says she doesn't think I will make it to the 8th, she guessed the 4th. I kind of need her to stay put until the 8th because Jeramy starts his new job Monday and hopefully he will get a full week in LOL. Feels so good to have an end in sight. I know I am down to the nitty gritty and that feels good but to have a date and time set feels good. The thought of going into labor on my own freaks me out. Yes I have had two children but with both of them I was induced. I never dilated with them until I was induced and it took me 10 hours to have both of them. I am already a good 2cm so if I make it to the 8th I can't imagine it taking that long. I told Jeramy that if we plan on it going fast it will take 24 hours and if we plan on it taking a long time, she will be here in a blink of an eye. This day felt so far away for so long and now literally it's 13 days away. YAY YAY YAY!!!! I can't tell you how excited I am to meet this little girl.

 Don't understand why he thought he could just come back into their lives and there not be any problems. Don't know why he thought he could just come back in like nothing had happened, and he hadn't just disappeared for a year in a half. For the past two weeks my ex husband has been writing my daughter. He tried to be sneaky and add her as a friend on facebook thinking I wouldn't know. He didn't realize that I know everything that goes on with my children, and we have such an open relationship they tell me everything. Giving it a lot of thought I figured I would let her write him back but not add him as a friend. That way she could talk to him, but not see everything that he does. The first few days she cried because she didn't like what I was saying to her. She didn't like not being able to add him as a friend. They talked for a few days and then he fell off the face of the world again. Typical Kyle style. Then a few days ago he finally wrote him back. The tears have been coming more regularly for the last two days. She doesn't understand why I keep him at bay. She doesn't understand when I tell her that he does things and has people around him that I don't agree with and that I don't think kids need to be around. It's such a fine line because I can't look at her and tell her that he drinks everyday, that he still does drugs, that he has the low life's of the world around him. That he got his new baby taken away from him because of the things he does. But me just saying that he isn't a good person isn't enough for her. She wants more answers and more of an explanation of everything. I have always told myself that regardless of Kyle's and my relationship, regardless of how I feel about him I would never project that onto my kids. I have always wanted them to be able to make up their own mind about him when they get older. But with him coming back into her life and talking to her it is putting me in a position where I have to explain things. So how far do I go? Do I go into detail about why he can't be around them, but not as far as how I feel about him? Jeramy said just give her the facts. Let her know what has happened but not put my opinion in it. Oh what to do, what to do???? There really isn't a way for me to not hurt her. I either have to let her cry and wonder why I won't let her see him, or let her cry when I tell her the truth about it all.....

Makes the heart grow fonder

Can't tell you how much fun I have had with my husband since he got back from his drills. Friday was an eventful. I took Jeramy to meet up with his friend so they could ride together to go to their drills in Houston. Came home and watched Daegan and the kiddos. Ashley came and picked up Daegan and then about 6 the power was knocked out. We stayed here till 7:45 and nothing came back on so the kids and I went over to my moms house. I came back home around 10:30 to check if the power was back on and it still wasn't, so the kids and I slept at my parents house. It was fun hanging out with my mom and the kids. It was a pain in the ass trying to sleep in the same bed as Zane. My kids are such wild sleepers, and my mom keeps her house at a normal temperature so being 9 months pregnant trying to sleep in a different bed with my son, I was miserable. Saturday we came back home and chilled all day long. It was weird not having Jeramy here, especially when I went to bed Saturday night. Zoei slept in bed with me, but it wasn't the same. I was so excited to go pick Jeramy up on Sunday. I finally got him around 7ish. We hung out at the house and he played guns with Zane Zoei and Marco (my third kid). I went to my moms house and got my charger that I left over there. Came back home and Jeramy and I laid in bed, watched TV and talked. He said to me, "I missed you this weekend, I didn't like not having you in the hotel with me, something just wasn't right." Put a smile on my face from ear to ear. Sometimes it feels good to hear that you are missed or that you are needed. I really feel like we re-connected, can you do that after only being gone for the weekend? I think so. Sometimes absence makes the heart grow fonder.......

houtson and galveston

This past weekend Jeramy had to go back to Houston to do his army drills. The last time we went was back in April of this year and it was just him and I because we really didn't know what to expect. We didn't go in May because the transmission went out in our car, and they didn't have drills in July. So this was our first time back. Needless to say it was not any less crazy. The first time we went the Sgt. didn't give Jeramy the address of the hotel, just the name of it. (for your information there are about 6 hotels within a 5 block radius that all have extended stay somewhere in the name) Anyways the first time we were there we spent an hour going from hotel to hotel trying to find out which one was the right one. We found it and ended up being in a room by ourselves. Some of the guys told him that the hotel that we stayed at was the one that they always stayed at. So this time we thought we were good. We packed up everything and loaded into the car and we were off to Houston. Took us about 4 hours to get there and we went to the same hotel that we went to last time. Walk in only to find out that it wasn't the one that they were staying at this time. We thought are you serious??? We really have to go through this again. The female Sgt. is ..... probably shouldn't say anything I guess we will just keep it at she doesn't handle her responsibilities very well. After calling a few sgt. we finally get a hold of someone and he tells us that they changed hotels this time...wouldn't of that been some helpful information for you to tell us before we got down there??? Come to find out some Female sgt.'s were complaining about the rooms last time so they upgraded everyone to the Holiday Inn. We get there and check in go up to the room only to find out they had put him in with another guy. So the hunt was on for another hotel room. We couldn't invade that other guy with four people LOL. We went downstairs to see how much a room would cost for the night and he said $129.99 Now there is no way in hell I am going to pay 130 dollars to sleep in a bed. Sorry just not me. We left and went to a couple of more hotels and they were 120 and 107 even with a military discount. UMMMM NO ~ Finally we saw a best western and went in there. There cost with the military discount was 60 bucks a night.... I can handle that. I won't pay 130, too expensive and I won't pay 40 because you start thinking what kind of place is 60 was a good middle number. Saturday morning I got up and took Jeramy to the base because after all the searching and crap it was 9pm before we even got into the hotel and I wasn't about to go to the grocery store after being in the car for so long. Took Jeramy to the base and went grocery shopping. Came back to the hotel and the kids and I were at the pool by 11 in the morning. We swam for a couple of hours and then went back into the room because we were all hungry. Stayed in there maybe an hour or so and then Zoei asked if we could go swimming again and I of course said yes. Back at the pool we were until 3:45. Jeramy called me and I went and picked him up. We just chilled in the room all night and we were all passed out by 11. Got up the next morning and took Jeramy back to the base. Told him that I was going to take the kids to Galveston. He basically said 45 runs into the ocean and it was only 30 miles away. The kids and I packed up the car, checked out of the hotel, filled up the car with gas and off to Galveston we went. I was kind of nervous because I am such a visual person. Any time I drove to Kentucky or Virginia to see Jeramy while was active duty, I googled it and got a good visual picture of where I was suppose to go. This time around I just knew to get on 45 and go south and eventually I would find the ocean LOL. It rained on us driving down there but I thought if we just get on the other side of this storm then we will be alright. Sure enough by the time we got to Galveston it wasn't raining anymore. We parked and got out and went down to the water. It was kind of surreal. As a kid we went there so many times, so it was kind of crazy being back but only this time I was the adult and I was taking my kids there. After about 20 minutes of being in the water it comes a down pour. The kids and I got out of the water and went and sat in the car. It only poured for maybe 5 or 10 minutes and then it was just a little sprinkle. So we went back in the water. A little while later it started raining again but we didn't get out that time. No one else even got out the first time, so we just kept on swimming. I taught the kids how to ride the waves in with their belly. We kept going further and further out and eventually we saw a jelly fish. That was my clue to leave. It was time anyways because we had to make it back to Houston before Jeramy got released from drills. We stopped at a gas station and got drinks and snacks then got back on the road. We were exiting the st when Jeramy called saying he was done. (perfect timing) We picked him up and then got back on 45 and headed north. Made it about half way home and I had to pee...of course. We stopped and Jeramy drove from there. 
All and all it was a fun trip. I am so thankful that I get to do these things with the kids. I love making memories with two of my favorite people in the world.

Nesting bug is in full effect. I feel like there is so much stuff we need to do, but haven't done... when in all honesty all we need is diapers. We got a bunch of clothes and the bassinet from my neighbor, and I am going to breast feed so she could come right now and everything would be alright. No we wouldn't have all the little odds and ends that you need and I wouldn't have the crib or bedding that I want but you get what I'm saying. We have to go to my grandmaw's house and get the bunk beds that are in her garage and bring them to our house, we have to move a dresser and an armoire that need to flip flop rooms. We need to get the crib from Lindy and set it up in the girls room. I just can't wait for the girls room to look like a Girly Girls room with all the pink and dots and their names hanging from the wall and for Zane's room to look like my little soldiers room. I'm an instant gratification kind of girl and HATE waiting. But in order to get all of this done I have to learn how to wait because I can't do it without Jeramy who is currently taking a nap in our bed. (i'm starting to think he is pregnant LOL) He has no desire to do it today, and next weekend we are going to be in Houston doing the army thing. So we agreed that we would do it the following weekend. That way we can have most of it done before the baby shower. I told Jeramy that we are going to get so much stuff and I want to be able to come home and continue the nesting process and put it all away LOL. Then the last month before she actually gets here we can get the things that we need and didn't get at the baby shower. I'm so excited to meet this little girl. I can't tell you how wonderful it feels to be bringing a little baby girl into this world with everything in place. With Zane my ex husband and I did have our own apt, but he had no job so a month after Zane was born we were homeless living in a motel off of division st. With Zoei my ex husband was living in our car in the waffle house parking lot and Zane and I were living with my parents. Nothing was ever in place or ready, but with Miss Zeelynn everything is perfect. She has a mom who can't wait to see who has been kicking the crap out of her, to smell her little breath, she has a brother who can't wait to meet his new sister. Even though he says she is going to be a butt head like Zoei, he tells me all the time he can't wait till she is here. She has a sister who can't wait to play dress up with her, to feed her, to change her, to be her little mini momma. And last but not least she has a dad who is so in love with a daughter he has never met. A dad who is more than willing to go out of his way to provide for his kids and wife. I can't tell you how much respect I have for that man.... He is just amazing. So here's to hoping the next few weeks go by really really fast and everything falls into place like it should so that I can get this nesting going!

memory lane

So I've been taking a trip down memory lane today. I guess the fact that it's almost July 4th, the fact that we are going to Houston to do his drills in two weeks and Jeramy got a call from his Sgt. saying they might get called up the whole army thing has been on my mind. Just made me start thinking of the journey we have been on since he joined the Army. It was so hard him being gone from July 09- till Feb. 2010, but him and I both knew it was for the best. He was stepping out in faith and taking a journey. A journey to grow not only as a man, but better himself in every aspect of our lives. Proud doesn't even come close to what I feel or think when his name is mentioned. Honored to be his wife, honored to be the mother of his kids. Honored to be married to a man who is brave enough to put his life on the line for every other human being, honored to see this man go out of his way to take care of his family.... Love Love Love me some Big Daddy J! He truly is my soul mate and I can't imagine my life without him. As I get to celebrate this July 4th with him by my side I am reminded of all of the people who don't get to because either their loved one is deployed, or is in Heaven. Blessed, I truly am blessed!
