New Year/New Blog!

Well, hello hello. Wow it has definitely been awhile! I have neglected this blog thing so BAD! To be honest, the last 4 months have been a whirlwind and I am just now having time to sit down and really reflect on everything. So let's see. In the past month, Josh and I graduated from K-State with a Master's degree in MFT. A week later we packed up all of our stuff and moved back home to Texas....with my parents. Everything has really been great so far! Josh and I both got jobs within 2 weeks of moving home. I got my dream job working at ETMC Behavioral Health department and Josh got a position at Sundown Ranch, which is a chemical dependency program. We are really excited to begin this new chapter in our lives (although we really miss our friends who really became family in Kansas).

What about Colt you ask? Well, he is just the love of my life....besides Josh ;) I swear he gets more beautiful every day. He now has two teeth (bottom) coming in, which puts him in a great mood most days ;) No, he really has been a champ about them because I know they sure don't feel good. He is now 7 months, almost 8 months old. I always get compliments on his beautiful blue eyes and his to die for smile. He is a big little guy too! He is about 19 pounds! He sits on his own and is almost crawling. He has also mastered the ability to pull up on his own! I sometimes wonder if he is going to walk before he crawls though because he really hates being on his stomach! He definitely gets irritated just being in one spot though, so I'm sure it won't be long until he gets really mobile. Let's see....what else....oh yes, I guess you are wondering what Colt will be doing now that Josh and I will be working full time! Today, I went by Angel Keepers which is a preschool for 6 weeks to 4 years of age. They were really sweet! They will be calling me today about an open spot so pray we get in! I really liked it and I think Colt would really enjoy being able to socialize now with other babies his age. I just hope he doesn't initiate any with his new teeth YIKES!

Well, I guess that is all for today. I have promised many that I will start to keep up with this better and I will do my best to keep this promise! Happy New Year all. And to that, here are some pics from Christmas of my little Colt man!

  2. Congrats on the jobs!!! Those were such cute pictures of Colt! Keep them coming!

  3. Glad you are blogging again! Hope you all are enjoying being back in Athens! We will have to meet up one day when I come to town. I am always in the mood for some CL and I would love to meet your handsome little man.
