- Our wedding in May
- Anna started daycare (loves it there)
- the death of both of my grandfathers, almost 3 months apart
- Trip to Destin Florida for Daniel's brothers wedding
- A whole week long vacation in October...and we forgot to take our camera!
- Enjoying the first part of our vacation as our belated Honeymoon!!
- Anna has spent several long weekends in Vidalia
- Trying to keep Anna well! This child has had way more than her share of sickness in the last 4 months
- I became a Pampered Chef consultant!!!
- Learned our daycare is closing in May...debated over how to change our life...prayers were answered when a lady who is friends with our current daycare owner asked if she could keep Anna when daycare closes!
- Anna talking, saying Momma, Da-Da, "at" for cat, bye (in a southern accent), and pa-pa for paw paw...only her me-me has heard her say this!
- Anna sitting up, scooting and now crawling everywhere! She is into everything!
She had the cutest lil lady bug costume for Halloween...but unfortunately she got sick right before it was time to trick or treat so we didn't get to wear it! We will have a photo shoot soon though!
And...the princess is almost 9 months old! Where does time go????
Most of my pictures are on walgreens cd's...I'm going to work on some picture post...but for now I'll add my favorite from June 13, 2009 on the beach in Destin Florida!

I'm also planning on selling Pampered Chef after the 1st of August!
Oh, and an update coming real soon....Today was Anna's first day of real daycare! I'm hoping for a good report when I get there after work!
I have tons of pictures to post (beach trip, our wedding, Anna's uncle Matt's wedding and so much more)...but with a super slow computer at home I haven't had any time for blogging!

Anna is now 3 months old and growing up so fast! She loves to "talk" and laugh...she knows what she wants and normally isn't happy unless it is her way! I have tons of pictures to upload but can't seem to find the time anymore! I think she has the beginning of her bottom teeth coming in...we have been able to see them forever but here lately she is gnawing on her hands like crazy...or anything she can get in her mouth....and drools and blows bubbles like crazy!!
Clingy has finally decided that she likes Anna....good thing since she was on her way to finding a new home.
We have been back and forth to Vidalia a few times and Anna has even stayed a week with her Grammy! Her great-grandpa (Hayes), my moms dad, finally got to hold her a few weeks ago...they just did their normal staring at each other! Ha!
We are going to Vidalia this weekend. We had originally decided to go visit and Daniel and my mom were super excited about fishing at the Barlow's on Lake Concordia...well yesterday my mom found my grandpa on the floor when she walked in to feed him. It appears that he has had another stroke, although the test are not showing it yet. He is in the hospital at NRMC and hopefully will be moved to the rehab on 5th floor this week. Although he is in the hospital mom still has to feed him, this stroke has caused him to not be able to feed himself anymore, nor can he walk or stand. All of his food has to be in liquid form, we have been blending food up for him for a few years now. The food at the hospital isn't the right consistency so my mom and her sister are still having to prepare his food and feed him. Hopefully Daniel and I can help her our while we are there this weekend!
While we are in town we are going to homecoming Sunday at Calvary...It has been years since I have been there and I am sooo excited!
Oh, and the biggest news....we are getting married on May 23!!!!
We are going to Houston for Memorial day weekend, all of Daniels family will be there and up until my grandpa's episode yesterday, my parents were going to be able to make it for the weekend. Things are kind of uncertain at this point...just taking it day by day. Originally my sister was planning on staying behind to take care of my grandpa's feedings so my parents could come, but now that his speech, and other motor skills have been affected she is unable to take care of him. The ceremony will be nothing big at all...we wanted something simple and casual...Daniel and his groomsmen (his dad and uncle) are wearing khaki shorts and a white shirt and I'm wearing a sundress and my bridesmaids (Daniel's cousin and her daughter) are wearing carpi's and a shirt that match my dress in color...
Oh, and Anna loves her new babysitter Kelly! Thanks again Casey! We owe you big time! Daniel is getting a lot more done at the office without the princess in tow each day!

Also, we found a babysitter for the summer and possibly one for the rest of the year! My friend Casey told me about a girl from Vidalia that she knew and that I knew of but didn't personally know. To make a long story short I called Kelly and she will start after her finals on May 11th! I'm so happy that we found someone and I owe Casey big time for helping me out so much!!!!
I'll post again when I know more results on Anna! She can't have anything to eat after 5 tomorrow morning and she normally eats by at least 6 each morning so I am going to set my clock for 3:45 and try to start waking her up to eat...I know she is going to be one unhappy little camper if she doesn't eat then though! Say a prayer that all goes well for us tomorrow!

Anna was a few days old here, she was holding her head up looking around while we were still in Vidalia the week she was born...and she fell asleep with her head in Daniel's hand!
My sister, Melissa holding her for the first time!
Work for me was work....felt like I had forgot everything, couldn't wait to get off...but wait...my baby wasn't home waiting on me. Daniel got home shortly after I did and we both realized real fast that although we enjoyed the quite time, we really missed our little princess. BAD!!!
Late last night I sent a text to my mom, dad and sister and said I need pictures ASAP! My crazy parents took a picture of themselves and sent it to me!! They did send me two pictures of Anna sleeping on my daddy but I opened the one of them first and cracked up! They are crazy!!
I called and talked to Anna this morning...she is keeping her grammy on her toes...between my mom going to bed late and Anna getting up not long after she went to bed wanting to talk and play and by the time they fell back asleep, moms cat wanted in and then my dad got up at 3 am to go to work...not much sleeping happening at Grammys last night!
The worst part of it all is that Anna is there all week! They wanted her for more than a night and I did have strep throat this weekend (thanks to Dr. Me-Me for getting me well!) so the extra rest has been nice especially since I am used to sleeping when the baby sleeps during the day it made for a long day at work yesterday! I'm heading to Vidalia Thursday after I get off work...and Daniel is leaving for a much needed camping and fishing trip with his brothers, dad and grandpa.
I read today about my friend Casey dealing with the first week of daycare and I know I will be in the same shape if Anna ever has to go! I don't gamble but I'm tempted to start wishing that I could win the lottery so I could stay home with my princess!!
Stay tuned to see how we survive...who knew you could become so attached to something so fast huh? :)
