Our big kid!

Eileen posted this picture of Gabe on her blog and I forget how much out big girl looks like her daddy until I see a baby picture of him. So precious and it explains so much about their great relationship, they truly are peas in a pod!

Well I have accepted the job to manage the new restaurant that the owners of Big Whiskey's are opening. It is called Whole Hog BBQ and altought I am nervous I am very excited as well. I am excited that I will no longer be coming home at 3 in the morning or smelling like cigarette smoke and bar funk. I will be exchanging that for smelling like smoked meat and home by 10. For the first few months I will be gone none stop while opening the restaurant until all of the chaos settles down. I have found a babysitter for Aubrey that I think will work out great. She is the wife of a guy I work with and she stays home with her two children ages 2 and 4. I took AJ over there for a playdate the other day and it was a success. I am excited that Aubrey will have a friend to play with and get to socialize a bit more. I mean mommy and daddy are fun but lets be serious they are only intersting for about 3 seconds in Aubrey world.

She sure is bigger than life now a days. My little baby is a toddler and I just want her to sllllloooooowwwww down!!!! Although that is not going to happen I just try to cherish everyday with her, because one day she will be off to college doing her own thing just as I set out to do 6 years ago and now look. I can't even begin to understand how my parents must feel watching me now. So for now it's one day at a time and as long as my little family is happy and healthy we will be just fine and can handle anything that comes our way. I am confident that everything will always work out.

OH NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BOOBIES ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!
