Baby Soup!

This weekend we had tons of fun! Saturday it rained pretty much all day so we just hung out and had lots of family time. Sunday Hydie and I went to Jana's to sew and John went fishing. Well, we didn't get much sewing done but we did find a place that would keep Hydie still for a couple minutes! She sat in this pot on the floor for a good 20 minutes just playing. She LOVES to help cook and pots and pans are her all time favorite toy! Hydie is getting another tooth so we are doing lots of teething...She loves "otter pops" the little popcicles that are in the clear plastic....she just chews on the plastic until the popcicle isn't cold anymore! She is eating pretty much everything now...Sunday morning she ate an entire waffle plus some scrabbled eggs and a handful of cherrios. She is pulling up on everything and walking holding onto everything. She is also really quick and sneaky! I have NO idea where she gets the sneakiness from.... I am going back to college this year to finish up my associates degree to be ready for nursing school when we move. I am a little nervous about getting back into the studying groove but I'm sure I will do fine. I start next Tuesday the 2nd and my first class is Anatomy and Physiology!!! John is getting ready to go out on his first real patrol sometime next month. We are both a little anxious to get this patrol behind us. The first patrol is always the hardest!

Why Buy Toys?

Why do we bother buying toys for Hydie? Lately, she has no interest in "toys" but she really seems to enjoy the cat toys, door stopper, laundry hamper, and plastic bowls. Hydie is now pulling up alot more, and today she push on the laundry basket to walk. She is too cute! This weekend we did alot of cleaning out and organizing. It feels so great to have an organized home! Hydie has started really enjoying when Mommy is cooking or cleaning the dishes because that means she gets to play with the pots and pans or tupperware. She thinks it's the coolest thing for me to put cheerios in a container so she can shake it and try to figure out how to get the treats out. Hydiebug is definitely expanding her food options lately. She now eats pretty much what John and I eat (just in tiny bites) and she loves cheetos puffs but I don't give them to her much because they make the biggest mess! She is also drinking formula out of a sippy cup now instead of a bottle. She decided to do this on her own when she woke up one morning and completely refused to take her bottle but was fighting to get her sippy. We have almost finished renovating the interior of John's truck. I finished up the sun shades tonight. To say so myself, I think it looks pretty darn good.

Sleepy Baby!!

Thought ya'll might get a laugh out of this.

As we were eating dinner the other night, Hydie just couldn't stay awake to finish. As soon as I stopped the video, I gave her a bath and put her to bed. Hope you enjoy!

Visit With Papaw Fatty

After a 12 1/2 hour ferry ride, Papaw Fatty and Danny Boy finally made it to Kodiak Island. To say the least, they were exhausted! After they arrived Friday afternoon I took eat lunch and then off to the house for showers and cat naps. Once we got settled in John called and wanted to give us a tour of the Alex Haley since he was on duty all night. This was my first time on the boat so it was even very exciting for me! Papaw Fatty

Saturday morning after John got home from work, we all packed up and headed out for a day of fishing! John With His Fish

Danny With His Fish

We had so much fun Saturday and we even caught a good many fish. I REALLY Caught This Fish!!

As soon as we got home and got the salmon cleaned, we ate dinner and John cook some wonderful FRESH salmon and steaks!! Sunday we decided we had, had enough fishing and went sightseeing. We took Papaw and Danny out to Fossil Beach which is one of the farthest drivable points on the island. Today John and I both had to return to work so Papaw and Danny followed me into town and did a little sightseeing on their own. Our Mississippians left tonight around 6:00 p.m. headed back to Homer, AK to finish up their trip and head back towards home.

Fun In The Sun

July 17 through 30th Hydie and I visited Mississippi! It was so nice to be home and visit with everyone! While we were in Mississippi, we celebrated my 21st birthday, Brittany graduated with her LPN degree, visited the gulf coast, celebrated Papaw John's birthday, and got Hydie's ears pierced and pictures taken... To say the least we were a little busy but we had so much fun!This was the first time Hydie has ever been in a pool but you would never known it by looking at it. She is definitely a little fish!! John is now home and will be home until September. We are so excited to have Daddy home for a while! While we were in Mississippi, Hydie finally started really crawling and now you can't let her out of your sight because she will get into something! Papaw Fatty suprised me yesterday when he called to tell me he was in Homer, AK and would be traveling on the ferry to Kodiak and should be in Kodiak by 11:30 today! I went to meet he and Danny Boy at the ferry and we are now just getting home and getting them settled in. I'm not really sure how long they are planning on staying but am so excited just to see them and finally get to share Kodiak Island with some of my family!
