Ok, so I admit it... I am horrible at up-keeping on blogging. Between being a full time stay at-home mom, business owner, wife, along with the cleaning, laundry, meeting friends for lunch, grocery shopping, producing orders, searching pinterest, checking facebook, etsy, answering e-mails and spending quality time with my family there never seems to be enough time in a day, week, or even a MONTH sometimes to sit down and catch up on my blogging. So here is my attempt!
A whole lot has sure changed in the past few weeks... Madisyn is now 3 months old! (15 weeks to be exact!) Sleeping mostly through the night, with the normal 4am feeding. I am loving her smiles, giggles and every little moment that we spend together. I have now dubbed her "mommy's personal assistant", as she is with me 24/7. Thank goodness I have a happy baby who loves our business supply shopping trips and can be right next to me in her bouncer, perfectly content while I work away! Of course, there are many "Mommy & Me" playtime breaks throughout the day to get my quality 1 on 1 time with her :)
Derrick has been gone often the past month, as he is doing work-ups for deployment. For those of you non familiar with Military, that simply means he is in the field doing training... A LOT! There is no "set" deployment in the near future as that all has changed now, but the Marine Corps is making sure they get all of the training time that they need. This means that he is gone for a full week, every other week. We have no communication during those times & only see each other on the weekends. For some wives this may seem un-bearable, but I am proud to do it. I am so proud of my husband and amazed at his determination to keep going every single day. We spend many days apart, but it is the days together as a family that make it all worth it!
