Busy And Announcement!

Life has obviously been super busy. I think it's time that I catch up on the everyday life adventures. Then I can (as I have time) go back and add the moments that I was hoping to do before these updates. This will be our last few months in a nutshell.

On April 5, 2012, Baby A turned 1 years old. Her party was fantastic, and my family was here to visit. They stayed for two weeks, and we went sightseeing and did all the fun stuff that we do while family is around. Once they left, life went back to normal.

Mr. Man works long hours with his new job. We had just gotten orders out of cycle (to Italy), so he was having to do the briefings and meetings and such to make it happen in such short notice.

Then came the time that we would find out if he made Tech or not. Just one week before finding out, we got some exciting news.

We ARE pregnant with Baby C2!! I know. I should have announced this forever ago, but I wanted to make it a memorable post that I would look back on, but it looks like life has other plans in store for us.

A week later we found out that Mr. Man missed Tech by just a few short points.

A week later I found out I passed my teacher's certificate test with flying colors! I was able to send my records to the Louisiana Department of Education.

In between then and now, it has been appointments after appointments. PCSing, well checkups for Baby A, allergy appointments for Baby A (allergic to egg), and so forth.

We are two weeks away from packing up our house. 3 weeks away from taking our leave in Louisiana before heading to Italy. And 50 days away from starting our journey to Italy.

This is where we are at the moment. Life continues to be busy and hectic, but it is just that time of year with PCSing and Summer time all in one.

Hopefully I can break some of this up into different posts. We also recently went to a really nice air show right outside of Cambridge. It was amazing. Baby A LOVED it! Lots of pictures from that.

Baby A also models now for some small town boutiques, and she has been featured in a magazine twice already. This is the route I chose over pageants because pageants (to me) have gotten a bit out of hand. I would love to show ya'll some of her photos when I get the chance.

I also have decided that I want to do more studying in photography. After taking her pictures and pictures for other people, I have found that it is a passion of mine. Along with fitness... so I plan on going back to school to get a personal trainer certificate after Baby #2 arrives, and take some mentorships for photographing when I get settled in Italy.

That's where we are at. I am happy to say that things are great! Everyone is excited and happy over our upcoming adventure.

Until next time...
