anytime a guy says “that’s what she said” always reply with “not to you”
Fml. Seriously. .. I could die. I love sex and it seems like I can’t get enough of it, but I don’t think it’ll ever be the same.
Well, not only am I no longer 21, but we are officially in the year 2014. CRAZY, I KNOW. I’m sure some of you are surprised you’ve made it this long, and some of you are just bored with the same old traditions but are any of you actually thankful to be part of this new year? I’m not sure if I am either. I mean, I am… but I’m bitter, and grumpy, and moody. It may just be me being my crazy emotional self, but today was a hard day for me. I had to face the fact that I’m getting older and that my life is now starting to progress much faster than I ever thought it would. It seems like this last year of my life just FLEW by.
First, there was January 1st, 2013. That was a VERY hard day for me. Robert left for basic training and I was about 12 or so weeks pregnant at the time, with Melody. I thought it was the end of my life and that once he came home, we’d be completely done like we had been saying we were for months. NOPE! We weren’t done. We wrote and wrote… and then wrote some more. We wrote when times were easy, and when times were hard. We wrote when both of us needed a bit of a push to get out of bed and keep going, me with Aiden and him with training. It was a rough 4 months (I don’t even want to think about what deployment is going to be like with two kids).
After that, was March when we learned that we were having a GIRL and Robert turned 21 in basic which was not fun for him but reassuring for me. :P I was SO overly excited that we were having a girl. After having Aiden for two full years at that point we were ready for pretty pink and purple dresses and girlie stuff. We wanted a girl so we could have one of each and be done… but are we done? and then my beautiful boy turned TWO! HOLY FREAKIN’ COW! Where did those years go?! Oh yeah… let’s not get into that.
After that was April. That was the month I had been waiting for since he left. The 21st was the day I got my husband back. Would we be happy, or would it all fall apart? Well, as you can see, we are still together and more happy than I ever thought was possible for us. Especially after our first few years of marriage… Those were pretty rocky, but look where we are now! How amazing is that? I thank God every day for showing us how much we needed each other. He is my helm and I am his anchor… and sometimes the other way around.
THEN only ten days after that, Aiden started REALLY walking and Robert reported to Fort Stewart, Ga which is where he is station. We all went together and got set up in our new home which is only temporary of course seeing as military moves quite a bit. I wonder where we’ll be in another two years. I hate Georgia. I hate the humidity, I hate the spiders, I hate the fact that you have to drive at least an hour to get to any decent city with stuff to do. I definitely miss home but I have to say there are a few things I enjoy. Being away from both of our families has really given us a chance to rely only each other. It has brought us closer together and given us the space we needed to really become our own little family unit. We’re adults now, how weird is that?!
JULY! So… July was a long month. I was pretty much dying to have Melody at the beginning of July. I was praying and hoping she’d come a week or two early since I was SO uncomfortable. Being pregnant was MISERABLE. I hate being pregnant. It does not do anything good for my body. But when I started having contractions that broke my water at 2AM on the 25th I was terrified. Can I do this? Is it gonna hurt? Will she be okay? SHE WAS PERFECT! She was the most beautiful baby I had ever seen in my life. I mean, I love Aiden but OH MY GOODNESS he was an unattractive newborn. Melody came out pink with her eyes open and looking straight at me. She had my heart from the start.
October was uneventful. We didn’t celebrate Halloween.
skip forward to Christmas. everything went fairly well. I got everyone’s gifts and stockings together and they seemed to love them.
baby girl is now in my arms so i’ll just leave it at happy new year. lets hope its a good one!
