2010 Update

I can't believe I haven't written since I announced the birth of our daughter. Things have been really crazy in this house with 8 people living here, but Ed and I are forever grateful to my parents for allowing us to get back on our feet. My parents and my older sis have been a Godsend when it comes to watching the kids. There is so much to update, that I will just list them out. Hope this isn't too jumbled.

1. Ed is still working at Market America in Greensboro. He has been having mandatory overtime, so his work schedule has been pretty crazy. It's definitely a change from GA when I was working 40 hours a week and he was at home. I am enjoying having so much time with the kids, but I REALLY miss time with Ed too.

2. About 8 weeks ago, I started working part-time for my best friend from high school. He owns 3 different companies, and I am his administrative assistant. I only work between 12 and 15 hours a week, but it's enough time for me to get out of the house and make a little extra money.

3. Timmy is doing pretty well adjusting to NC. He is really enjoying playing with his cousins. He loves going to church and participating in Junior Church activities. He sings in the choir and last week he was an usher. He has joined a coach pitch baseball team, and his first game is this coming Tuesday. He will be 7 years old on this coming Saturday. He has REALLY been asking a lot of questions recently about salvation. So, if you think about it, will you please pray for our little boy. Thanks.

4. Silas has grown SOOO much since we moved to NC. He has started talking much better, and he is DEFINITELY a Nana and Papa's boy. He LOVES keys like they are made of gold and ALWAYS wants the keys as soon as we put his clothes on every morning, even if we aren't going anywhere. He will be 3 on May 5th, and we are going to try and potty train him this summer. I have really enjoyed spending more time with him since we moved to NC.

5. Emma, our new baby girl, she will be 4 months old this week, and I can't believe how big she is. We did have a little scare last month around the middle of March, she got pneumonia and RSV. She was pitiful. It was the 2nd scariest sickness my kids have had. (The first time was when Timmy had to be hospitalized with a severe asthma attack) The coughing was just horrible to hear. I ended up sleeping on the recliner with her on my chest so I could be right there if she got into trouble with her breathing. She has beaten this sickness, and is eating and sleeping great. She has been sleeping through the night for about 3 weeks, but will wake up around 3am wanting her paci. I put it in her mouth, and then she falls back to sleep til 5:30 or 6:00. I am LOVING having a daughter and picking our her clothes and bows. We have been truly blessed with our Emma girl.

Well, this about sums it up...I will try to blog more often and post pictures soon.

I am not sure if anyone is even reading this, but if I still have a few readers out there...sorry for the delay. Thanks for reading....
