My Little Monkey

Fills her Mama's heart with so much love and happiness.  How did I ever live a day without her?

I do love my husband.  I dont know how I lived without him either.  But my daughter, she makes me want to be a better woman even more than her Daddy does.  I want to do well in school, in life, because I want Kaia to know that she can.  I want to smile more and frown less because I want her to always smile.  I want to earn loads of money, and now it's not 'cause I'm a greedy miss selfish but because I want to buy her cute clothes, have enough to keep her involved in activities, provide her with a warm, safe, and beautiful home to grow up in, and send her off to college some day (too soon I'm sure), and maybe even throw her a fancy wedding some day.

I want all this for her and more and she isn't even old enough to ask for anything yet.  Im sure Todd and I are in for quite the ride with our sweet angel.

What fills your heart with immeasurable love and joy?

Always Running

I feel like I'm always running these days.  No, not literally, though I wish that was the case.  Instead it's just one thing after the other.  Classes, followed by homework, followed by baby feeding, changing, bathing, development, playing, followed by more homework, followed by cleaning and errand running.  Then it's just wash, rinse, repeat.

I am enjoying school.  I am finding my groove, mostly.  I am looking forward to my future as a nurse.  And yet, I so miss my lazy days with my daughter.  I love sleeping in until 7 or after and having nothing to next to nothing major on the agenda.  I miss long snuggles with her soft, warm little babiness every day.  There is no sound quite like her sweet voice babbling to her Mommy all day.  And now, now she's becoming so much more fun too!  She says Mama.  Her Nanny said she signed it too!  Such a smart baby!  I don't want to miss one moment with her.  And so now, I cherish each second I have with her even more.

Gone Too Long

Hi all!  I'm sorry I've been gone too long.  I know.  I'm not doing well at juggling my new demands with the old.  Though, don't worry, Kaia's still being taken good care of.  The blog and exercise are not doing so well though.  But the weather today is gorgeous and I'm going to be taking Kaia out for a stroller jog here shortly.  I cherish every moment I have with my daughter now even more now that I must be away from her so many hours of the week at school.  I don't think I could ever have been prepared for how much I'd miss her even if everyone told me in a million different ways. 

She's so precious and so sweet my little angel.  She's 7 1/2 months old already.  Time has flown.  She was reweighed the other day and has gained one pound so she's holding her own staying steady in the 25th percentile.  That's what you get when your Mama and Papa aren't exactly big people I suppose.  Also, the most wonderful thing ever . . . she says, "Mama ma, ma, ma" now!  I know it's not necessarily about her Mama, yet, but she says it nonetheless and it melts my heart and makes me smile every time.  The girl is good!

My Mom was here visiting for a week and a half.  Thank God for such a blessing and having her here to be our Valentine.  Kaia misses her dearly.  She felt much loved and spoiled having Grandma watch her while I was at school.  I wish she could stay always.

That being said, we are yet another day closer to Daddy being home again though it still feels so far away, having him home again truly will be a wonderful blessing.

I have been trying to catch up on all of your fabulous blogs ladies.  I am sorry I haven't been doing so well.  I've enjoyed all the posts I've been able to catch up on so far.  I've missed you all.  Big hugs to you all.  I hope you are well and had a wonderful Valentine's day filled with so much deserved love, chocolates, and jewelry :)
