Hello Again! I have missed blogging and I'm excited to get back at it. To catch up since the last time I blogged: Tyler and I had a BEAUTIFUL baby girl in August! Leah Lou has blessed our lives in so many ways and we love having her a part of our family! She has the biggest smile and loves being sung and read to! We are just starting to feed her solid foods and put her to sleep while she is still awake (I hate hearing her cry!) Tyler and I graduated in December which was a big accomplishment for both of us! After going nine straight semesters taking over 15 credits, working part time, and being pregnant, I finished my degree! It is an accomplishment that I will always be thankful for and I could not have done it without the support of my husband and my family! We have also moved to Pocatello, Idaho where we will be living for at least the next two years while Tyler works on his MA in Rhetorical studies. (If you don't know what that is here is a round about definition, he will be studying the art of communicating with a pinch of philosophy added into the mix. This means I will never be able to win an argument!) Our apartment is short and small, but it is perfect for what we need right now. Tyler has promised me the kitchen of my dreams when we are finally settled because of the kitchen we have now (pictures will soon follow). 2011 was filled with so many blessings for our family along with a good mix of trials, but we are excited for the new year! Some of my goals this year include losing my baby weight (I'd love to loose 50lbs by the end of the year to feel good about myself again), oversee the planning my families AMAZING reunion in July, and enjoying every second of Leah's life! I love being a mother and a wife! I'm starting to understand what this life is truly about and I love it!
