All about us.

I have a friend who did this & I thought it was cute & fun. I wanted to do take a minute & reflect back on me & Robbie. With all that is going on in our lives it is fun to remember how our lives started out together! I hope you enjoy this post & I would love to see all of your answers!

A:Yes. We grew up about 5 miles away from each other.

~Who is the smartest?

A: I think Robbie is more"book"Smart & "street" smart. If I had to be lost with someone ( & actually want to survive!) I'd feel very safe with him. I am more "people" smart so we compliment each other pretty well!

~Who has the bigger family?

A: I have more people in my family but his family gets together more than mine does.

~Do you get flowers often?

A: When Robbie is out to sea I get flowers ALL the time from him. But I get flowers plenty! I love it when he surprises me with them for no reason... just because flowers are the BEST!

~How do you spend the holidays?

A: Depending on the holiday, we usually spend the holidays with family & close friends.

~Who is more jealous?

A: I don't think either of us are really jealous people.

~How long did it take to get serious?

A:2-3 years.

~Who eats more?

A:Robbie does. especially now my appetite is not very big, I eat small amounts through out the day.

~What do you do for a living?

A:I am a stay at home mommy! Robbie is in the United States Navy ( & I love it!)

A: Robbie does.

~What is your song?

A:What A Beautiful Mess, by Diamond Rio. (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay, by Otis Redding & a funny one... Without Me, by Eminem. That one came out when we first started dating seriously so we always played it. That & Otis Redding were played A LOT during his boot camp days by me!

~Who is oldest?

A: I am by 8 weeks. I like 'em young!

~Dog or cat people?

A:I guess I would say both. We have both!

~Who cooks?

A: We both do. We each have meals that we can cook well. But the majority of the time,if we cook, I do it. (I'm not a big fan of cooking while I'm pregnant)

I love reflecting on how we started & what we do together now. I love my husband with all of my heart & wouldn't trade him for the world. I don't tell him often enough as I should but I appreciate him & adore him! Thanks honey I LOVE YOU!

Healthy treat.

Robbie has been taking lunches to school lately & he packs them in a Harmon's reusable bag. The kind all of the stores have come out with to help with your groceries. One night he brought his bag home with some food left in it, he put it away (low enough for Trent to see it) & thought nothing else of it for the night. As our night was winding down I was doing dishes & Trenton was playing with dads lunch bag. I turned around & he had grabbed the apple out of it & had taken a bite!

I didn't know until then that Trenton knew how to eat an apple like that, we always cut them up for him (smart kid!), but he just kept choppin' at for a while & was happy as a bee eating it. We let him carry it wound the house because he was being really good with it holding it with both hands so we didn't see the problem with that. I think he is holding the spoon because he was trying to use it but found it much easier to just bite it! I love this picture & I love that Trent loves his fruits & vegetables...for now!

Bed time

We decided since Trenton is going to be a big brother soon we needed to get him a "big boy" bed. At first he didn't like it at all, in fact we'd find him in random places on the floor, but after a month he has started to realize the freedoms of having a bed instead of a crib. Things like he can play till he drops (which isn't always a good thing!) or in the mornings he doesn't have to sit in the crib & wait for me to get him out, he can simply play with some books or blocks. He is getting better at getting back in bed when he is finished playing, that is a great thing!
These are some pictures of the progress & some of him sleeping in random places!

Last nap in the crib. (He always tilts his head to the side when we takes his picture now. too funny! )

The extra mattress is in case he fell out. The crib bed sat a little higher then his toddler bed. (next picture)

I love his toddler bed. So dang cute!

Random sleeping spots!....
I was walking down the hall to go to bed & this caught my eye...Little fingers begging to be let out! It was about midnight & he was fast asleep. When we opened the door this is what we found...I could only open the door enough to get the camera in there to take this. It took a few minutes but we finally got in & got him into bed!

In his closet. ( he had the door closed when I went in.)I have a few of these pictures on different days. He would refuse to take a nap. So after an hour of waiting for him to fall asleep I would just let him out. When he would eat lunch or dinner he would be so tired he would fall asleep mid meal. How sad huh!? but kind of cute at the same time!& last... we walked in for bed time & found Corrie making herself nice & comfy. Trent was SO excited to see her on his bad, he loves her!
