My Princess is a Big Girl!

This past week has been somewhat of an adventure for us. We moved Hydie into a "big girl" bed. Right now it is just a twin mattress/box spring on the floor with a guard rail. She loves it! She has only gotten out once but mostly she will stay in until I come in and get her. We really didn't want to move her from her crib so soon, but she is a climber and she climbed out the week before and scared us to death! So, we are now a big girl in a big girl bed! Trooper is really enjoying Alaska and is growing like crazy! He is finally 99% potty trained and knows basic commands like sit, stay, no. He is such a quick learner and I am SO thankful! We are still working on manners (not to get in Hydie's face, not to lick visitors, etc.) but hopefully those will all soon come! This past week I also finally received my camera that I have wanting for EVER it seems! I got a Canon Rebel XSi and LOVE it! It is an intro. professional camera so hopefully I can get some good quality pictures of Hydie with it!

More Updates....

The last blog entry I caught up on what we did while in Mississippi. Now, since we have been home we have had valentine's day and played in the snow! Valentine's day was so nice to be able to hang out with John and Hydie all day! Hydie and I didn't even get out of our pjs! I cooked v-day breakfast (heart-shaped pancakes, eggs, and bacon) and John cooked a FANTASTIC dinner (my favorite- Shrimp and chicken alfredo, green beans, corn, and key lime pie for dessert)!! Hydie had lots of fun on love day too! She had a few happies from John and I but CiCi and Pop-Pop also sent special v-day happies to their love bug! A few before valentine's Hydie and her friend Lindsey went on a little sled ride through the yard! They had so much fun and played and played until their hands got cold! Since then we haven't had much going on!

It's Been WAY Too Long!

Yes, I know it has been forever since I updated! So here's a quick update...After Hydie's birthday, we had Christmas with John, he left for a patrol, Hydie and I flew to Mississippi, went to Adam's wedding, spent Christmas with the Carter's, Hyde's, Fulghum's, and Gallagher's, and had Hydie another birthday party with family and friends from Mississippi. To say the least, we have been a little busy! We were in Mississippi from December 11-February 1. John flew in on the 28th to see his Nana that is very ill and flew back home to Kodiak with Hydie and I on the 1st. I am so very thankful I had John's help this time on the flights. Hydie was quite a handful. The day after we got home, Hydie FINALLY began walking on her own without holding on to things. Now, she is all over the place and I can't keep her still! My baby girl is getting so big! I want to thank everyone for everything ya'll did for us in Mississippi! We are so blessed to have such awesome family and friends! It was so good to be able to visit with each and every one of you!
