The title of this post has a few meanings. I am starting over with this blog. I am bad and forget to post... a lot. I know. I am sorry. But in a sense its a good thing because now I can start over.
I am starting over. In a lot of things. Life has changed. Far more than I ever thought it would. See over 7 years ago I met the love of my life, J. He was and still is insanely important to me and I was then and still am madly in love with him. That all being said, just because someone is in love it doesn't mean that things will work out. That's the case for J and I. See as hard as I tried, our relationship was not as strong as everyone thought it might be. So as much as I tried to fight for us, it was not successful. J and I are splitting up. Its heartbreaking but it is life. For a while I felt bad for myself but then I realized that I needed to be strong and move forward, to start over, so that is what I am doing.
Baby A and I are going to relocate somewhere. Where, I am not yet sure. But the thing is I have so many possibilities. Its exhilarating to have possibilities and hope everywhere. See A and I can go anywhere and do anything. Its an amazing feeling. I am ready and excited for the challenge.
It isn't easy. Shoot I wish it was. It isn't something that I thought I would be doing, but if I am going to do it, well then I am going to rock it. That's how I see it.
So the direction of this blog is changing. No longer is it about a young couple in love. Instead this blog is about a determined and focused woman, single mom, moving forward in life. I am not even sure if anyone even reads this (I wouldn't blame them if they didn't seeing as how I am not consistent in posting) but if you do, I am excited for this journey and to be able to share it.
Hope all is well.

Anyway an update on us. A lot has been going on. First we have been in Delaware for 5 months now. We are really starting to like it. We live in an area with not a lot going on but we are close to a lot of things so that is good. We love our house which at one point I will post pictures of (if I can ever get pictures without toys in them). And ready for the random part, Jack and I are actually working on our yard. I know it surprises people. We are not big on dealing with the yard but here we had no choice. It was dead and looked horrible. So we decided to do something about it. We put down seed and have been watering it daily. Now it isn't as nice as the neighbor's yard but at least we now have grass. haha.
Jack and I are both liking our jobs and doing well. A loves her nanny and we adore her as well. So all in all it is a good thing.
Baby A is getting so big. We are actually starting to plan her 1st birthday party. Hard to believe it but she is already 9 months old. Its crazy. I will write another post with an update just about A. She is pretty darn cute (I may or may not be biased). haha.
Anyway I promise to get back to this. I feel like I say that a lot, but this time I am sticking to it. I am writing it in my calendar. haha.
Hope all is well with everyone.

1 Month Old
Not liking her picture being taken.
Favorite Things - Bentley, nap time and her turtles on her pack n play.
A Little better about the pictures now. haha
Favorite Things - Daddy, going to the YMCA, her swing, Bentley, cuddles with Mommy
1. It is illegal to talk on your phone and drive, or text and drive. This is no bueno for me. I am always talking on the phone while driving. That is an adjustment.
2. Apparently there are no Bank of Americas anywhere close. That has proven to be interesting.
3. We are the only Marine family in base housing. That being said we are also the only people that buy the Marine Corps Times. Its fun to pick it up and watch people look at you like you're crazy.
4. There is a ridiculously amazing dog park at the end of our street. We have found it a great place to meet people.
5. Base housing is awesome. The rest of the base leaves a lot to be desired. It seems like the Air Force likes to put money into the housing more.
6. We are moto. We always knew this but it is amplified more on an Air Force base.
7. We are learning a ton about the Air Force here. It is interesting.
8. There is a ridiculously long and dangerous bridge that we had to cross to get here and to go to DC. Jack and I were both scared, not going to lie.
9. It gets cold here. We were so not used to that.
10. Aubrey has gotten some rosey cheeks since being here. Adorable. Here she is in her Bumbo being all cute.
Hope all is well with everyone!

Not sure if I shared this but Jack decided last week that we would be able to do the move ourselves. So instead of the military coming to pack up our belongings we have done it ourselves. Or should I say I have done it. I found out on Wednesday that we were going to do things ourselves. Jack rented a Uhaul and I have packed our entire house in just 5 days time.
Tomorrow we pick up the truck and load it. I have to clean out the fridge and vacumn the floors but other than that we are as ready as we can be. Jack plans to drive the uhaul and I will take the Prius.
Bentley is going on vacation for a week with our amazing babysitter. He is going to drive up our other car and Bentley and meet us in DC in a weeks time. We are quite excited about this.
So yeah the journey begins in 2 days. Wish us luck.
Hope all is well with everyone!!

We went to the doctor for her 4 month checkup. Little miss is according to her doctor "perfect". We couldn't agree more.
She is now 11 lbs and 7 ozs and 24 inches long. She is in the 10th percentile for weight and the 50th for height. I see lots of dresses in her future. Her pants don't exactly fit. They are too short. So dresses it is.
Daddy was not the best when she had to get shots. Baby A took it like a champ. Daddy on the other hand couldn't even watch. He doesn't like seeing A cry and of course she cried when she got her shots.
We are still in the process of getting the move organized. But I wanted to give a quick update on our little peanut.
Hope all is well with everyone!
