Well to say this month has had it’s challenges is an understatement but things are going good…so many things have happened!!!
Dalton is 1!!! I will write a whole post on his party but it was great and I can’t believe I have a 1 year old!!! All those years of dreaming and praying and hoping and here he is beautiful, intelligent, and vibrant! I am so lucky to be his mother! I love him so very much!
This week we finally got the carpet installed in his room, the painting finished, and we’ve been turning Adin’s room into a teenagers room instead of a little boys room! It’s been chaotic, sad, and exciting all at the same time!
Red and I went on our fist baby free date to celebrate our anniversary! It was just what we needed! My lovely husband took me to dinner, and then we had some drinks while bowling which was perfect. I mean I am absolutely terrible at bowling but I always have a blast, whether thats because of Red, or the drinks or the wonderful combination, haha… Either way it was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary! It was wonderful!!!!
Our eldest son celebrated his 19th birthday, which is scary to think about but hopefully from now on he’ll start making better choices, and make the next year much better than this one was for him…
I’ve been thinking a little bit about doing another round of IVF but it doesn’t consume me like it used to… I think that’s because I’m super busy, but also because Dalton so wonderfully fills the whole in my heart that infertility had placed there… I would still love to give him a sibling close in age to grow up with, but I’ve done a great job of sticking to my new years resolution, of living in the now instead of living today to get where I want tomorrow…
Don’t get me wrong I’m very much a goal driven person. But focusing on the right now has been wonderful in so many ways! This summer escape was a great reminder to me to focus on the positive and live in the right now!!! I’ve been doing pretty good too!
I’m finally half way done with my semester and feeling like I’m finally getting the hang of this crazy schedule!!!! Next week, I have an interview. Decided that it’s time for me to start a very minimal hour work schedule… I’m interviewing to become a substitute teacher and you are only required to work 2 days a month to keep your lic. active. I don’t have classes on Fridays, and most the time won’t with my college schedule, so this way I will be able to work one day a week. I’ll be able to get my foot in the door to becoming a teacher. I will meet tons of fellow teachers and principles which will really help me out for when I’m ready to become a teacher! I hope I can get hired on ASAP so that I can put some money aside for Christmas! I already got Dalton his presents, just want to get him some socks ( a tradition in our house), but I still have everyone else to worry about.
Later that same day I have a big math exam! SO hopefully I will do well at both things… Luckily that night I will get to have fun with Dalton’s first Halloween!!! Well I am exhausted so I’m going to end this, but I miss writing so I wanted to get it all out!
