Well, I finished student teaching and I finally got my first 4.0 in college, to bad it was my last semester. I have not been able to find a job right now, I check on the internet everyday to see if there are any openings in the area and no such luck. So for now I am staying at Big Whiskey's, bartending and filling in as a manager when they need it. There are talks of another store going in on the south side of Springfield and I will be moving there if that happens. It has been a tough semster but college is finally over. I really could not hav gotten through it without Gabe. He really stepped up and helped me through my hardest semester yet. It is great to see a father so engrosed in his childs life, those two are peas in a pod, alike in almost every way. My two little babies.
As for the little bitty she just is not so little anymore. She is up and mobile and into EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!! Gabe and I are pretty exhausted by the end of the day, but it is so worth it. She is so funny!! She dances and sings and loves to read books. In her toy chest she has all sorts of goodies plus books and as of right now all she digs out are the books. She will walk to book to me or Gabe and say booooook. She also moooo's like a cow and woof's like a dog when you ask her. She is done with baby food, she only wants what you are eating and will let you know it as soon as you take a bit. We are extreamly lucky to have a good eater, I have yet to find something that she does not like. She ate spinach the other day, what kid eats spinach. We are also transitioning to milk, so far not a huge fan she is still kind of attached to the "baba". I am also excited that the is a fruit eater. She loves cantelope as much as I do and she will eat 2 bananas a day if you let her. All in all she is the best baby (well toddler now) EVER! I am pretty bias but I am scared to see what the terrible two's bring because she has been such a good baby.
As we approach Aubrey's first birthday I am so sad, happy, excited, worried and every other emotion there is. I CAN NOT BELIEVE THAT IT HAS BEEN A YEAR! They really do grow up fast and I find myself missing that little bundled baby that we brought home almost a year ago. All of the worry, the sleepless nights and days, the missed days of school and work, and stress of it all has been so incredible worth it that I wonder how I was so lucky to be blessed with this little girl. She truely is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I thank god everyday that she is happy and healthy.
Thank you to everyone who was able to attend my graduation and all of those that sent their wishes. Thanks for all of the support over the past year I love you all.
