20 Months Today

Today marks the 33rd anniversary of my wonderful in-laws and the 20 month birthday of my dear son. I will post his update when we return from our road trip to Redmond. We are going to visit Kyle's grandma. We want to get as many visits in as possible before the weather changes. Bronson is growing up so quickly and we want our relatives to be able to enjoy this growth as much as we do. Please tune in Sunday for his full update.

As I sit in a scene that comes straight out of one of my wonderful christian novels, I reflect. I am surrounded by the beautiful central oregon pines and looking out over Sunriver. I am truly happy. Yes, I currently have lots on my plate, but I am not going to let it ruin my current happiness. I used to wonder if I would ever get to a place of happiness again. I feel that I have finally found that place. My little family brings me such joy and I am so lucky to have a wonderful faith that keeps me strong.

Today marks just a week past a surgery that I really didn't look forward to. God knew that I needed it and some things have been fixed that would have later caused problems if we choose to have more babies. I am unable to go on the fun filled water adventure, but I don't mind. It is nice to be able to have some time to myself to think about some of the big decisions that are coming soon. The biggest decision that I hope to soon find the answer to is whether or not I get my dream job. I am currently in the background portion of a job for Independence. It would be a great fit for me and couldn't have came at a better time. I am wondering how Bronson will do in a daycare setting, but know that socially it will be good for him to spend some time with a few other kids. I have been blessed to be able to spend as much time home as I have. There might be a chance later in life for me to be a stay at home mommy, but for now I must work.

Kyle and I have began making plans for a small remodel to our home. We both have decided that since the market is going all over the map we would start making our home more ours. Our first plan is to start a kitchen mini-makeover. I want to have a small island built and replace the current countertops and sink. I have never been a huge fan of painted sinks and it really doesn't work for our lifestyle. We would also like to put some hardware on the cabinets to make then look a bit better. If I get this job I am hoping for this to a spring project. We have also elected to move our yard project to the spring because of unsure job situations. I officially lose my current job on August 31st.

We still haven't decided whether we would like to have more children. We believe that the decision is a joint one between the two of us and God.

Trips to Wal-mart

Watching a movie with Daddy
Taking a Corvette ride

His treasures from daddy, notice all his dad's dream cars...he says Bronson picked them out.

It seems that Bronson has really enjoyed the time that he is spending with daddy. Kyle has been taking him on many adventures the last few days. The only problem that I see coming is that Kyle buys him a toy everytime they go to Wal-mart. The picture doesn't include the newest ball that he came home with tonight. Kyle's excuse was I just love him so much and want him to have stuff that is fun to play with. The kid has WAY too many toys, but I can't complain about a man that loves his son.

Talking up a storm

Well, I have been out for awhile due to a minor surgery. I am still recovering, but these last couple of days have given me the opportunity to take time to relish in Bronson's development. He is talking so much. All it takes is one time for him to hear a word and then he puts it into his language and makes it his own. Some of the funny words happen to be my broom, vacuum, and help me, Amber, and Kyle. It is so much fun to listen to his chatter. I can't wait until I can add some blogs about his out of the mouth of babes.
