4 days away!

Kyson David will be TWO YEARS OLD in just 4 more days! I'm excited and very sad. He's growing up, becoming his own little person, discovering new things, and understands so much now! I just love him to pieces! He is in desperate need of a haircut at the moment :) Shaggy baby, lol. He has quite the temper, which we're working on... Parenting is hard sometimes! We did decide to go with a Cars themed party! I bought a Lightening McQueen shaped cake pan, but it's really not that great and was a waste of money, pretty much. Then Mom tried a coconut cake decorated like a road and grass with two toy cars on it, but that was a bust too. Now I'm trying my hand at a Tow Mater cake, and I actually think it's going to work! If I manage to pull it off I will be very very proud of myself :) Tab is supposed to try her hand at Mater cupcakes too! I can't wait to see Kyson's face this Saturday :) I can ask him how old he is and he'll hold up his fingers (one, two, four or five randomly) and say "Two!". He also "sings" the Happy Birthday song to himself :) Both of my babies are sleeping at the moment, which doesn't happen but MAYBE once a week, and I just sent Joshua to Publix to pick up a couple of things that I need to finish decorating the trial cake. So I have the house all to myself for a few moments. Woo hoo? I've really never needed  a lot of "me" time. I'm sure it has something to do with growing up with so many brothers and sisters. When Josh and I first moved away to Carrollton (2 hours from home) I was completely miserable and lonely. I said I would never move that far away from my family again, but now that we've been back for more than two years, I am ready for an adventure and to be away again, lol. Which reminds me!! Josh goes for the physical fitness test for a correctional officer in Alto, Ga in a few week! Hoping and praying he gets it! I should probably stop typing and go clean house, since at the moment it is an absolute wreck!! :)

I'm sitting in my Mom's kitchen with the windows and doors open, listening to the leaves on the trees rustle. It is so peaceful at the moment! That definitely doesn't happen very often in this house! Mom went to take Doreese (closest sister to me in age) back to school. Promise (who is home schooled), Kayla (who's 5, but not in PreK), Becca (21 months), Kyson, Kade, and I have played all morning long! But at the moment they are almost all asleep :) The bus with the elementary schoolers gets here in about 45 minutes, but since it's FRIDAY, they won't have any home work! And that means that they can go directly outside to play :) :) And just as soon as Kyson wakes up, he will be BEGGING to join them, lol.

Life is still going great :) Josh is looking for another job, since the "raise" he got when he became a manager at McDonald's was... not what we expected, he's hoping to get something ASAP. Which I am all for, lol. Kade has a slight cold, AND TWO TEETH!! She is still one of the best babies ever. Kyson is on his way to becoming completely potty trained. If we're at our house, he uses the potty about 85% of the time, about 50% of the time when we're at Mom's house, but we haven't tackled the potty on the go yet, lol. I think he is too busy playing at his Nana's to bother with making a trip to the potty while he's there. He gets a sucker or some other small piece of candy every time he goes (if he askes for it). One day he went like 5 times in a row!! And of course thought he should have five suckers, lol. It has almost been TWO years since I had hime :/ I'm so sad that I can never get those days back, not that i regret them at all, it's just that I can never again cuddle with my newborn Ky again! He's so big now! He falls asleep in his own bed in his own room every night! He comes toddling through the house around 3 am every night to get in our bed though :) It's OK, because I get to wake up to him every morning. Most of the time it's with his little fingers on my face saying "tickle tickle tickle, Mommy!"

I wouldn't trade my life right now for ANYTHING. I am so incredibly blessed.
