It's been a while...

...Since I have blogged for real. These days I am doing lots of things, like running after Miles. He is now climbing up and down the stairs more than playing with his toys! I also believe that clothes in this house are multiplying! Every time I turn around there is a pile waiting for me to wash. Same thing goes for the dishes! Let us not forget there is still unpacking to do. My goodness! I am just getting to our bedroom and I just came to terms that there is entirely toooo much CRAP! So I began to throw away or donate stuff. The house is coming together slowly. I have decided to try to sell diaper cakes for real now. I am going to try to set up something on the Internet very soon that is the goal! I am really excited! It won't just be diaper cakes but that's all a secret for now!

Ryan had been doing a lot of overtime and we are both feeling the effects of it! But I have to say that I am extremely lucky to say that I have been out of work and into another kind of work being at home with Miles and my husband supports that! I have still been looking for a job but the story is that I am too qualified for some things and not qualified for the rest! I keep trying and in the meantime I'll enjoy watching my son grow in leaps and bounds. He just turned 17 mos on the 28th, WOW!

Miles has been making a lot of the alphabet letter sounds and jibbering up a storm. Still waiting for some real words! Please if your kid has been talking in complete sentences from the womb, good for them! He has become more interested in his books other than to eat them. He holds the book properly and turns the pages for the most part 1 to 5 at a time!

Well I don't want to spoil you so I'll leave some for later! Sorry to my loyal readers all 5 of you. Oh yeah, Ryan's Birthday is on June 2nd! Be sure to wish him a happy one!

Hi Cousin Melanie,

We are glad to hear that the diaper cake business is about to get underway and will anxiously await news of what the other items will be. Whatever it is, we wish you much success.

Don't let all of the housework (combined with motherhood, of course) get you down. Generations of women before you made it through and you will too. When you work outside the home, it's even harder because you only have Saturday and Sunday to enjoy your family with one hand while you are cleaning the house with the other. You are really blessed so, enjoy the time at home while you can. Three cheers for Ryan and the job he is doing as well!

Keep your chin up...it will all be over before you know it. You'll look around one day and Miles will be packing his suitcase to go off to college (or whereever his dreams might take him). It's no use holding on to the suitcase handle and beggin' him to stay because your time with him will be up!

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY", Cousin Ryan and give Cousin Miles a big kiss for us!
