I have my first cold. It is not fun.
Last night, I woke up crying, coughing, and gagging on my snot. Mommy suctioned out my nose, cleaned me up, elevated my mattress, and rocked me back to sleep. I was fine after Mommy took care of me.
Mommy on the other hand, she was a nervous wreck. She was so worried about me that she slept on my floor.
This morning I am better. I have been coughing and am still a little congested, but my nose isn't runny anymore. Tonight Mommy is going to run my cold mist humidifier, and let me sleep with her so she can keep a good eye on me.
Hopefully I will get better soon!!! Being sick is no fun.

I ROLLED OVER TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The first time I rolled over was this morning. I was laying on my back on my playmat and Mommy went to put her makeup bag to her room. When she came back into the living room, I was on my belly. Then, I rolled from my belly, back to my back. Mommy grabbed the video camera, but I didn't feel like doing it again. Later this evening, I was playing on my mat again and Mom had the video camera handy. She was taping, and I didn't feel like rolling over. She stopped video taping, and the urge to roll over struck. So, I rolled over. Ha. The joke was on her. Anyway, a few minutes later, I was put onto my back again and Mom brought out the video camera. It took some coaxing and patience, but Mom finally caught me rolling over on camera! She was so proud of me!!! I am proud of me too. Go me!!!!!

Brandon and I went to Killeen this weekend to see the Willis family and Kelsey's ballet and tap recital. We had a great time. Here is the play by play.
We got to Killeen around 4pm, and were going to check into the Econolodge hotel where I originally made reservations. Thank GOD for Ginny because when I got to the Econolodge, I just could not bring myself to get out of the car. Luckily I was on the phone with her and she looked up hotels again and found a better hotel for just a few dollars more a night. Whew. The Econolodge was C-R-E-E-P-Y!!!!!!!!! If I wouldn't have had Brandon with me, I could have stayed there. I ~did~ afterall stay in the Fort Knox Inn in Radcliff, KY. THAT was bad. Bullet holes in the windows, a HUGE gap under the door that bugs could easily get through, and blood stains dripping from the mattress to the floor. BUT, having Brandon with me...NOPE. So, Ginny for the win on that one! Love ya Boo!!! :-)
Anyway, after the hotel situation, we met up with the Willis family. Kesley is almost 7 years old now and is beautiful as always. We finally got to meet little Kyla!! She is so cute, but is a little meanie! lol It's adorable. We hung out with the Willis family and got to catch up a bit. It has been about a minute since we last hung out. Saturday morning was Kelsey's recital. It was ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE. I have made an executive decision that Brian and I MUST have a daughter!!!! O.M.G. I NEEEEEEEED a daughter. I need to put her in dresses and tu-tus, and tap shoes, and glitter, and bows. It needs to happen. Oh, and to just fuel the fire even more, there was a, get this....FATHER/DAUGHTER dance!!!! It was probably the cutest thing on the face of the earth!!! I just sat there and imagined Brian up there with our little girl and I about lost it. The cuteness was overwhelming. So, after the recital we went to dinner with Tracy's Godmother, Anna. Then, we all went bowling. I taught Kelsey how to shimmy for good luck. Hahahahahaha, it was SO cute!!! She insisted on shimmy-ing before EVERY round. It was so much fun. Sunday was spent getting ready to come home as the Willis family came into Houston to visit their family here.
The only bad part about the trip was actually ~being~ in Killeen/Fort Hood. The entire time I was there, I was reminded of Brian. Every restaurant we passed made me think of the many times we went to dinner. I would imagine us sitting there, and try to guess what he would order. I thought about how when he gets back, we get to go find a place to rent while we are stationed there. I imagined us spending time together in a little house raising Brandon together and just living life normally. Nothing extravagant. Just boring, everyday stuff. I just missed him so much. He needs to come home. I miss him too much.
Overall, it was a great trip In conclusion.....Brian and I must have a daughter.

Hello everyone! I haven't blogged for myself in awhile, so I figured now would be a good time.
Let's see....how are things with me....
Well, things are going well. I was recently able to visit with Stephanie and Camdyn a while ago. I also got to see Whitney, her husband, and little boy. It was so nice seeing everyone!!! Camdyn has gotten so big, and is pretty much the spitting image of Kevin. It was so much fun spoiling him and being able to hang out with Steph again. I had a great time. The weekend flew by way too quickly, but I will see them again I am sure.
Speaking of traveling, I have a very busy couple of months ahead of me. This upcoming weekend I am going to visit with the Willis family. My Goddaughter, Kelsey, is having a ballet recital, so I am going to see that. They will also get to meet Brandon for the first time and I will get to meet Kyla for the first time! I am looking forward to that. In July, I am going to North Carolina for the first time in 8 years. I was there in 2002 for Beth's graduation, but due to the death of my Pawpaw at the same time, I wasn't able to really do and see much. So, I will be there visiting with my Dad and Stepmom for a week. Heather is going with me, so during the day while Dad and Addy are at work, we will be sightseeing and going to the beach and having fun. I can't wait for that trip! That is all of the traveling that I am doing that I know of. I am sure that at some point I will be visiting a few other people, but those will be day trips.
What else is going on.....
Oh, I am officially registered in school!!! Yay!!! I start in August and am registered in 4 classes. Speech, History, Intro to Education, and Psychology. I am SO excited to physically be taking classes again!! The online class thing is just NOT for me. The great thing about my classes is that I was able to get them at night, so Brandon will not have to be put in daycare!!! I am SO relieved. I have a GREAT daycare that I can take him to, but I want to be with him during the day. I want to be there to video tape everything for Brian. I want to spend time with him. So, it works out well that I am taking night classes. I can't wait to get this show on the road!!!
I am officially on a diet. Bleck. Haha. Well, it is just something that I have to do for myself. I just need to. I plan on going to the gym after classes, so that will become my routine. I am going to start going to the gym with Heather on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and one day a weekend until she leaves for school. I am excited about that as well. I'm going to be one hot momma when Brian comes home!!!! lol
Speaking of the love of my life, Brian is doing well. He is getting situated in Iraq and dealing with the daily grind. Brandon and I got him a PSP for Father's Day, so he is loving his new toy. He gets to call every couple of days, and emails when he can. He talks to Brandon everytime that he calls, and everytime Brandon just smiles! It is the cutest thing ever!! It hasn't been like the first deployment where we could talk on messenger all the time, but maybe that will be an option later in the deployment.
Brandon is doing wonderful. He is getting SO big!!! I posted a blog on his page about his 4 month doctor appointment. He is 18 pounds 4 ounces, and 27 1/4 inches long. He started eating solids May 24th, and LOVES it. So far he has had rice cereal, green beans, sweet potatoes, sweet peas, and carrots. He starts squash on Thursday and then it will be time to start fruits. He is absolutely my pride and joy and the best part of my day. He wakes up every morning smiling and talking to himself and rarely cries. He is such an excellent baby. I love him so much!!! It is unreal.
Emily is doing well. She has adjusted well to the other dogs in the house. I was quite worried about how scared she gets, but she has taken to it nicely. She plays with the other dogs and is very good. She has become more fiesty, but I think that is more out of necessity than anything.
Eh, I'll throw in a little vent. I have just become so fed up with people's lack of responsibility!!! It is such an irritating quality for a person to have. I am sure that you all have met someone that just REFUSES to take ANY responsibility for their own actions. It's almost like they expect the consequences of their actions to NOT affect them. They blame everything on someone else and have an excuse for everything. These kind of people get under my skin and piss me off!!!! Especially when they involve me in their immaturity. One day....maybe one day, they will grow up and realize that if they would just step up and be an adult, maybe their problems would go away. Oh well. Such is life I suppose.
I think that is about it for now. I am going to take the boy and go cuddle. He has watched his Baby Einstein video twice so far, and is getting fussy because he is fighting sleep. So, we may go take a little nap. I hope that you are all doing well!!! Thanks for reading about my boring little life. :-)

Well, as of May 30th, I am officially 4 months old!!! Yay!!! I am getting SO big!! I had my 4 month well baby appointment with my new pediatrician June 4th. I weighed in at 18 pounds 4 ounces, 27 1/4 inches long, and my head circumference was 18 inches. I got my shots and cried, but Mommy was there to cuddle me and make me feel better. Daddy was also there, in spirit and got to talk to me later that day and tell me how proud he was of me. I am wearing 9-12 month clothes and am SOOOOOO close to rolling over. I just love to smile and laugh at people and I do not stop talking. Ever. Mommy started feeding my baby food and it is good stuff!! I started out with green beans and after a couple of days had sweet potatoes. Yesterday I had sweet peas for the first time. I love my veggies!! Everyday I am getting cuter and I have all of these girls here wrapped around my little finger. I love being the baby!!!
