Our Family

I'm Heather. I am a 21 year old stay at home mom and wife. My husband, Kevin, is in the United States Coast Guard and we are currently stationed at the black hole of America, also known as Upstate NY. Hayden was born May 26, 2009 and that's the day our lives changed for the better.

I suck at blogging.

Seriously, I suck at blogging. There has been so much going on since I last posted.

Where to begin?

Well, we had Lindsey's baby shower, which was A LOT of fun.

We had Army Wives night with pedicures!

I've been really busy with Hayden. He has two more molars coming in, and now he is either sick or his allergies are bothering him. It's so hard to tell. He has his 15 month appointment on Thursday. Kevin has been working like crazy still. He is also going to Kentucky for a week or so in October for some sort of training. I'm not really upset about it. I knew it was coming and it's only a week. I practically do that now.

I hate that people tell me that I don't really have the right to complain when Kevin is gone, whether it be for a few days, weeks, or months, because I know that he is *safe*. That's how always true, and it ashame people feel that way. Everyone's life is different. I hardly ever complain about Kevin being gone. It's apart of his job and I just deal with it. Do I have days where I hate it and it sucks? Yes, but who doesn't?

Anyway, I'm sad Army Wives is over until April :( I'm weirdly looking forward to winter. Maybe it's because of the holidays? I'm really excited for Christmas shopping. I have a lot of ideas for Kevin and Hayden!

No title?

I know I'm totally slacking on this blog thing.

It's been a week, I think, since I have updated this. I've been really busy with Hayden since Kevin is working all the time. We finally got to spend some time with Kevin this past weekend, which was nice. Saturday, once he got off of work (again), we went down to Alexandria Bay for the Pirates Invasion. It was nice and it was really  nice to get out of the house and away from Drum for awhile.

Sunday, we had some friends over for dinner. Then it was Army Wives night with Heather, Lindsey and Devin.

Kevin, Hayden, Heather, Carl and little Carl came over for dinner.

The amazing cake Devin made.
And the chocolate covered marshmallows I made.

And my amazing friends. Heather, Lindsey, and Devin :D

Who told him to grow?

Wellll, where to begin?

Kevin is finally home from what seemed like a VERY long weekend. I get bored too easily and I need hobbies, haha!

Last night, we had Army Wives night with Heather and Devin. Fun as always! Love those girls! We also got to talk about Lindsey's baby shower some. Super excited about that!

Today, Kevin didn't get home until closer to 1PM. We just hung out until dinner. I made fried chicken, augratin potatoes, and cheese and garlic biscuits. Then we took Hayden to the park, which was fun as always. Hayden is way too adventurous for me to keep up with him!

We also had to put Hayden in a toddler bed today. We realized that he is capable of climbing out of his crib and I'm not too fond of the idea of him falling out while trying to climb out. So, he is now in a toddler bed. So far, so good. The cat is even sleeping with him for a change!

This and that.

Where to begin?

Yesterday, Kevin and I went out, alone, for the first time in over 14 months. It was great. It was very much needed too. We went to Red Lobster. Amazing! Then, we walked around the mall killing time until our movie started. We got Hayden a very cute pair of shoes. Converses!

We saw Salt. Angelina Jolie is bad ass in that movie, if I do say so myself! Very good movie.

Today is boring. Kevin is gone all weekend, so it's just Hayden and I all weekend. I have cleaned the house and done all of the laundry. Nothing exciting. That's for sure.

Yesterday and Today.

Yesterday and today have been good, but long days. I'm ready to hand Hayden over to Kevin for a few minutes to relax :/

Yesterday, Hayden and I went to the splash park with Devin, Krissy, and Lindsey. It was fun and Hayden LOVED it.

Today, I took Hayden back to the splash park with Heather and Carl. It was a lot of fun.

Other than that, not much else has gone on. Some cleaning and some going insane, BUT not much else :D

It's been awhile.

I know it's been like TWO months since I've updated our blog, but things happen. Hayden keeps me SUPER busy. He is a walking, semi-talking, monster child that keeps me on my toes almost constantly. Nap time is my favorite time of the day. He is 14 months old today and he now says 3 words that you can easily understand, and 3 others he is working on. He is a smart child if I do say so myself. He waves bye bye or waves hi, whichever. He eats almost constantly too.

Hayden's Walking!

Hayden is finally walking! I am SO excited and SO proud. He is a little mister busy body now. Into everything and not listening, but I guess that's to be expected.
