So my allergies have been crazy here and finally went to an allergist to find outwhat I am allergic to and if I stay here I will have allergies year round just like my mother thanks a lot. So I definitely know we will only be here at least until dave is done with school and get out of here because it is no fun. I like Texas but not enough to be feeling like I have a cold all the time. I have been crazy busy at work and will be getting even more busy but that just means job security for me which is always good with this economy. We have enjoyed our little girl a lot she is taking a few steps by herself from me to Dave a lot. She loves to talk a ton and makes plenty of noises in church. She loves going swimming and splashing around but definitely does not like going on her back. She is such an angel baby and feel so blessed to have her in my life. I also feel blessed to have a great husband who is on base right now this weekend he is so proud to serve our country and love that about him. I am also glad that his contract is almost over this year. Here is some pictures and some stuff we have been up to.

So much going on

I must first apologize for my negligence in writing. It is somewhat hypocritical of me because I gave my sister-in-law crap about not posting, but I haven't posted in forever. I think we all just think our lives are boring compared to others. Forgive me if this ends up being long, but it has been awhile.
I started school again on Friday and I am liking it so far. It is an online university, and it has been super easy so far. The first class you have to take is just basic internet stuff and where to find the tools you need to get through the program.
It would take more time than I care to spend typing to explain how the program works, so if you want to know more details let me know. In short, there are 40 assesments I have to complete, and I was lucky enough to have 13 of them taken care of with transfer credit. I am hoping to move through things quickly, because it is all self paced and the sooner I am done the sooner I can get to where I want to be: coaching.

Now on to the stuff you guys really want, what is going on with Olivia. She went swimming for real for the first time which was exciting because the water was still pretty cold.

She loved splashing in the water so much. She always loves to kick and splash in the tub too.

Livy is climbing all over everything now. The other day she was climbing on the printer to try and play with the blinds and she fell into her bumbo. It was hilarious because she couldn't get herself out.

Livy is the coolest baby around and she likes to flaunt it.

She also will eat just about anything you put in front of her. This is one of her favorites, smoked turkey from Rudy's. It was even funnier when we gave her some BBQ sauce that was a little spicy and she was trying to wipe it off her tongue.

Grandma Hardman came and visited us for Easter and we had a good time going to Sea World and playing with her.

Aunt Mary is here with us now and she has been such a great help. Livy loves following her all over the apartment, and especially pulling her hair. I really can't say enough about how grateful I am for my little sister and the help she has been already. We have been able to get so much more done thanks to her. She has discovered what it means to have allergies, and she has been such a good sport about it. She is the greatest.

She is such a little goofball and we love every minute with her. For whatever reason, she LOVES being upside down. If you tip her back once she will keep throwing her head back to do it again. I am so lucky that I get to spend so much time with her. It is amazing how much joy she brings to us everyday.
