Joey is going to be a year old soon. I can't believe it. Why is it when you are a kid it takes FOREVER to get from one birthday to the next but when you're a parent you wish you could slow down time between birthdays? I think we are going to have 2 birthday parties for the Yo-Yo, one up in New England when we go in September to visit Joe's family (I'm stoked to go back up there, I love everyone in his family, they are all great!) and one at home when we get back. So he should get fully spoiled with a bunch of stuff he probably doesn't need. But oh well, that's part of the fun of having a child.

July 4th

I know, I know I am like 2 weeks late, but oh well.

On the 4th during the day we just hung out at home, went to the park to take some pictures of Joey and walked around the mall. Here are some of the park pictures.

That night we went up to the Space Hall with my mom. She gets a special pass to go up there every year. That is where they set the city's fireworks off from. We brought some ear plugs for Joey just incase the canons were too loud for him. While we were all waiting for the show to begin some kids that were close by had sparklers and Joey loved watching them wave the sparklers all around. About 10 minutes before the show began Joey fell asleep and slept through the whole thing. I guess he didn't need the ear plugs. He only woke up at the end when we were packing up our stuff to go back down to the car.

That's pretty much all that our weekend consisted of. We lounged around the house the rest of the long weekend.

Just another day.

Sorry it's been so long since my last post. There just hasn't been much going on. We bought tickets last week to go visit the inlaws in Septemer. 2 full weeks of New England fall. I'm excited. I'm making Joe take me into Boston, and we are going on a Duck Tour and to the Sam Adams Brewery. We are also going to have a birthday party for Joey while we are there. I'm excited to see everyone again. I love Joe's family. I've told him before that if we ever split up that I'm keeping his family and he can have mine.
Joey is slowly starting to sleep through the night. A few weeks ago we started just giving him his paci or a small bottle of water in his crib when he woke up in the middle of the night and now theres more nights he doesn't wake up then he does. The only problem is, he thinks that 5:30am is his time to get up for the day. We lay him in bed between us and try to catch a few more minutes of sleep inbetween him talking and hitting us. He's getting so big now. He is pulling himself up on anything he can. And he crawls everywhere. This weekend we are probably going to get a baby gate so we can keep him out of the back of the house. He likes to go back there and munch on cat food.
This weekend we are going to the Cherry Festival in High Rolls. It's a fun time. We just walk around all the booths, buy a bag of cherries and enjoy the coolness of a higher elevation. It will be a nice change from the 3 digit temps we have been blessed with.
That's all that's been going on with us recently.

Memorial Day weekend so far.

So far we have had a good weekend, We finished cleaning the house, it was left really dirty so I had to clean even the walls and doors. We went to the pound yesterday and adopted a puppy. He is a heeler mix and is a solid blonde color. Who knew adopting a puppy at the pound would cost $150.00. Then we went to walmart to get all the puppy stuff we need. A crate, food, bowls, treats, leash ect. We decided that the crate could be better used as a babysitter, we could save thousands a year if we didn't have a daycare expense.

Just kidding of course but it did make for some cute picutres.

Blogging Virgin....

Well I am popping my cherry, this is my first blog ever. I wanted to have a place where our families could keep up on what is going on with us and see recent pictures of Joey.

He's growing so quick, it's hard to keep up. He's 7 and a half months and is cutting his 3rd and 4th teeth. He is almost crawling but alot of times gets mad that he doesn't move as fast as he thinks he should be moving and gives up. He also started pulling himself up on things, my baby is going to be running before I know it. We recently started him slowly on table foods. He plays more than he eats but he was getting bored with jarred food and wouldn't eat.

Joe just put in for a new position with his company installing new software and training other employees on the software. It would mean alot of travel for him but the company would provide him with everything he would need and Joey and I could go with him places if we wanted to.

I am still truckin along at my job. There are days that I want to quit, I don't like some of the inner workings of the company, and other days that I love my job. I like what I do I just wish I didn't have to deal with all the pissed off customers. I am considering going to school for medical coding. I could work from home doing that if I wanted to, or work in a hospital where there is more room for advancement than the place I am now.

We also just got a job with the church. We are now the lock up security custodians. The job came with a house. We actually have a house now! It's great, 4 bedroom, 2 bath. We now have a yard that Joey can play in when he gets bigger. We no longer have to climb the stupid stairs to get to our apartment anymore. We are enjoying redecorating and have a long list of stuff we want to do to fix up the house a bit.

Well that's about all that is new with us. Come back often to see what is up with our family!
