Family Life

James is our first child. Of course as a first time parent I have every right and obligation to say that he is perfect in every way ;) I will start this by telling a little about us. William and I met while working at Lowe's in college. He a lumber associate, me a lumber cashier. Worked out well huh? As of December 8th we have been married for five years. Almost immediately after getting married we moved from Dekalb, IL to Colorado Springs, CO. William was in the National Guard and was called up to active duty. Thankfully he was stationed in Colorado, and not overseas. We spent almost 2 years there. We then found our first house in Rockford, IL where we both got jobs at Home Depot, William going to New Orleans for Katrina and me starting a new job and a new home by myself... ahh the life. We knew these were temporary jobs as we were both STILL in college. William for elementary education and myself for accounting. Then it all changed when my husband found a great job with the electrical company. We sold our house and moved to a tiny town. While in the transition stage we found out we were pregnant! Now we have a beautiful 9 month old son and are getting ready for our next move as William is almost done with his training and will be permently placed in June.

Mommy's have the most fun!

James has been cutting his first tooth for a few days now.... which is so much fun. I have not gotten any sleep, because he hasn't gotten any sleep. As soon as I put him in his crib he screams like the boogey man is standing in front of him. I know what you are going to say... let him cry, he will go to sleep. I have tried this, many times. He does not go to sleep. Finally last night I decided to try putting him down in his play pen. He immediately fell asleep and stayed asleep for the whole night! Now the question is... why didn't I think of this earlier?
