Sorry for the lack of blogging lately. There is so much happening in our household. It’s been fabulous.
First off, Miss Audrey turned 3 months on October 12th. I’m WAY behind on blogging about that one so I’m going to skip it and blog about 4 months (in a couple of weeks). Things that have been happening. She is staying awake longer and is such a happy baby (most of the time) but I was started to get worried. She has been struggling with holding her head up on her own. When I try to give her tummy time she just cries. She doesn’t like it OR she is just lazy and doesn’t do a thing. So I decided to google it. (Is that what everyone does??? Please tell me yes!) Well most babies should be able to hold their heads up by 3 months. I did read that pre-term babies can be a few weeks to a month behind. Well, good news is that Miss A has really started to hold her head up on her own this week! It’s so cute to watch too. She is trying so hard. :) She is cooing like crazy and really really loves her daddy. I do have a bunch of iPhone pictures to share but not at this time.
Secondly, I got a teaching job! I feel like it is such a blessing. Meant to be. Perfect. I was able to stay home with my sweet baby girl during those first crucial months. Teaching was something on my mind and heart constantly and I was so eager to get back into the classroom. This opportunity came about (really long and odd story) but I’m going to be teaching 4th grade. I will only have 13 students (be jealous) because the school is super small and in a small rural town. (love it!) I haven’t decided if I will continue to blog about teaching stuff on my personal blog or start a new blog. I think two blogs would be quite a bit to keep up with so I might just stick with blogging about it on here. Sorry for you readers that are not teachers. :)
Third, my amazing husband has been switched from evening shift (2-10 pm) to day shift (6-2am) and it’s been great. He loves it. I love it. Our evenings together as a family are so much nicer and smoother. No stress. This couldn’t have happened at a more perfect time with me getting a job and all. Also, my husband turned 34 on Friday the 21st. I got him a new pair of tennis shoes that he has been wanting (those Nike shoes that simulate bare foot running). I also surprised him at our friends bon fire with a brand new four wheeler. He SO deserves it and has been wanting one for a while (since he sold his other one).
Finally, for Halloween/Fall we decided to visit the pumpkin patch. We will not have Tryp for Halloween so we wanted to do something fun with him. We visited a local place called Farmland Adventures where they had corn mazes, petting zoo, pony rides, and a huge pumpkin patch. I took pictures but my son refused to look at the camera. He was a very busy little guy. Here are a few:
I know that I’m going to be pretty busy (with a job and family and all) but I have lots of other cute things to blog about! Happy Fall y’all! (The cooler temps are nice)
