I'm Baaaaaack! :)


Dear Paisley,
I feel like it has been years since I put anything on your blog. I know it's been a while, but school and work have been brutal here lately! On a good note, I think I got all A's from this first summer session, so I think it was all worth it!

This past month, we've had the All Star baseball game that your daddy coached at Smith Wills Stadium in Jackson, Memorial Day weekend, and several fun weekends camping and hanging out at Nana and Pappy's. I guess our way of relaxing is staying busy! :)

Your favorite thing to do right now is have us read to you and point out animals! You love saying the names and making the sound the animal makes.....it has to be one of the cutest things ever when you tell me that the cow says "Moo" like this......

or when you say that the bird goes "Teet teet" like this....

The kitty cat says "Nowwwww"....the frog says "Brrrrrr" (in the cutest little growling voice I've ever heard!).....the pig says "Ain't ain't"....and the monkey says "Oh oh ahahah"! Hahaha. You also know what the sheep, fish, alligator, snake, dog, and bee say! :) You are one super smart cookie!

There's no way to write about everything we've done this past month and a half, but I wanted to make sure I put some pictures on here, especially since this IS your scrapbook! So here goes.....

Back in the Groove

Dear Paisley,
I have been a terrible blogger here lately, but I'm doing well to be sane at this point. Your daddy and I both deciding to go back to school at the same time was definitely something we should have thought more about. These last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of computers, paper, essays, and teacher work samples. I know it will be all worth it in the end....if we can just make it to the end!

This past weekend I played tennis down on the coast and you got to stay with Nana and Pappy. You've started saying so many new things and your cute little personality is really starting to develop. However, you have started this little (more like HUGE) fit throwing thing when you get sleepy.....not some of you best moments. You started saying "I Love You" and "Laylee" (that's Paisley in your language), and when you want to draw you grab the paper and pencil and say "ABC". So cute! I'm hoping to get some pictures loaded up tonight when I get done with my homework...but I am trying to avoid another 1:30 am bedtime, so we'll see.

Hope you're having a great day at daycare! Later Tater!

Back to Being a Student

Dear Paisley,
The next two months' posts will probably be few and sparatic if today is any indication of the days the follow. Today was my first day as a Graduate Student at Delta State University. Today was a whirlwind in the least....early morning class until lunch time, straight to work from there, hoping I get to your daycare by the time they get ready to close, and off to fix dinner and do homework. It's been a while since I've done this whole student thing, and it's definitely going to be a challenge juggling grad school with a full time job, wifely and motherly duties. But like one of my professors says, "You can do anything that has been done before!" And MANY people do this everyday, so I sure can do it! :)

This weekend, we learned that you know "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands". You were making this big flying arm motion and then put your hands together and rocked them. Then you acted like you were rocking a baby. It was absolutely one of the cutest things I've ever seen! :) I guess Children's Church is working!

Well, I've got to get back to homework...man, that sounds weird.....Maybe I'll get to upload our Memorial Day pictures onto here sometime this week!
