Well I'm moving on up!  Sewing surgical hats in three styles and they've been selling pretty well at the hospital so I am taking a chance and branching out!  I just opened my etsy store, I figured why not!  I am always looking for a way in order to make a little extra and this is an added plus since I love sewing!  I just want to get a few pictures of the boppy covers that I made for a friend of mine for her beautiful baby girl!

Little man is doing very well, back to school and has an early release day Friday.  And he doesn't know it yet, but he gets to have a sleep over with his cousins at my sisters that day too!  That will make two date nights in the last week for us!  We had a great weekend together, my niece and nephew had their birthday parties on Saturday and it was a blast!  My mom and I went out shopping before the party for some last min gifts and while we were shopping Hunter and my dad went to another build and grow workshop at the local Lowes.  Then after the birthday party he got to spend some more time with Grandma and Spud, always makes him happy!

We went and saw "Gone Girl" Saturday night, and I loved it!  Jury is still out on how Jared liked it, I don't know that he was ready for the kind of movie it was.  Without giving anything away it just twists and turns, just like the book.  If you haven't seen the movie or read the book I highly recommend reading the book first!  It was so good I had to get another one by her and read it as well, read Dark Places and Gone Girl in a week!They were so good, couldn't put them down!

We have another full weekend coming up, so until next time!

Long Time

Well it's been far too long since I posted anything.  We are still chugging along.  We are still trying for baby number 2.   We were told we would need to go see a fertility specialist, but we have decided against this, we already have one amazing little boy who is the center of our world.  We thought that we would rather use the money that may of gone to a fertility specialist and spend it on little Hunter.

Hunter is now in Pre-K 4 at the elementary school five days a week!  He loves it and is learning so much.  I never realized just how much they are supposed to already know by the time they enter kindergarten!!!  Pre-K is for them what kindergarten was to us growing up.  I am so blessed that he was able to enter this program.  He got in on a need for speech therapy.  His MDO teacher last year noticed what we had already, that she couldn't really understand him and neither could his friends.  So we started the process late last year in getting him speech therapy through CCISD.  And let me tell you, it's a PROCESS!!!  We had to go and have him tested, and as I knew he qualified for the full evaluation, which was another two months down the road.  When we went for the full evaluation it was a FULL day of testing in all areas of development.  We were both exhausted afterward, he totally melted down and was done with the day, and I couldn't blame him at all.  After that it was more waiting and waiting for all the instructors to meet and 'grade' his tests.  We finally got the call and after filling out more paper work (so much paper work) he was officially accepted and got to start after spring break.  He was in Pre-K 3 the last nine weeks of the school year.  And he made great progress in that short period of time!  So much that he didn't have to do anything over the summer.  So now he's back in school and having so much fun with all of his friends.  He loves his teachers and as I heard after the parent-teacher conference last week I learned just how much they love him!

I am still working nights, which is so much easier now that Hunter is back in school.  Not much to report on that end, other than lots of new people.  And I'm making scrub hats for everyone!  Love making them and I'm making pretty decent money doing it!

Til next time, I promise it won't be so long!
