Graduation Take One :)

Someone definitely filled out and grew more hair over the past 8 months.

I find it so hard to believe that yesterday was Lynlee's last day of "school". They had a picnic for them yesterday followed by graduation last night. I'm going to be totally honest here. Our pictures aren't the best. I didn't run up front and take them as she got her diploma. Ryan does have a cute video that I"ll try to get and see if I can post it on here but we kept it pretty simple. Since her birthday falls late in October she will actually be in the same class again next year and then move the 4yr old class the following year. We have a couple more graduations to attend so don't hate me for the fuzzy pictures. haha.

New Swing Set.

Life is good here. Boring but good. I haven't blogged in forever but I wanted to share a few pictures from the past weekend.

Lynlee's Pappy and Meme got her a swing set. She LOVES it! and don't even get me started on the sweatshirt and jeans at the end of May.. Geesh!

this, that, and big news

Oh I feel like I have So much exciting news to "talk" about today. I had planned on blogging every single night last week but I think it just got pushed to the side. Give me a break though, The Voice was on three nights last week. A girl has to have some priorities. haha

The BIGGEST and most exciting news for you that don't know is that Ryan started a new job yesterday. His last day at Armstrong was last Friday. The best part?! His new hours is 7-4 Monday thru Friday! I can't begin to tell you how awesome this is! And even though it's great for us I do have to say the past two mornings of Ryan not being here has been challenging. I actually felt bad yesterday because I never gave him enough credit for all he did every single morning with Lynlee. She is a handful and I have always got off very easy when he is around. I keep telling myself it's an adjustment and it will get better. I'm praying it's true!

The weekend was amazing! I went wedding dress shopping with my BFF. She got her dress and we ordered our bridesmaid dresses :)

Lynlee had labs on Friday. They are lower (for the most part) and we get repeats in one month.

Lynlee has less than 3 weeks left at her school. Our biggest obstacle right now is finding a part time baby sitter on the mornings and some afternoons that I'm working. I have to say I'm nervous with this part, but its all about change.

I think that's all the exciting news. Here's a few pictures that I thought I'd share. 

Oh how she loves her Bubbles!

Sleepy head ;)

Have Faith

Every now and then I go back and read some of my older blogs. I mainly do it when I need to verify the date of something or I just want to see what we were doing this time last year. My mind is always blown when I do go back. Lynlee has grown so much in one year let alone 3 1/2. Time flies and some memories fade.

I've been blogging for 3 years, have over 300 post and over 30,000 views. On day one I never thought it would go this far. I was doing it and still am for Lynlee. So she can read her story and so not one part is forgotten. But I believe other things have came out of this too. I've met some amazing people from this and hopefully given some hope for the future.

When I go back and read the words I wrote I'm in awe of it all. Sometimes I wonder if I really wrote that, or how we made it through that. Those first few years of Lynlee life was so scary. I read my words and I'm sad that I was like that. Sad that I was so so scared every. single. day. Not one day went by that I wasn't afraid for Lynlee. I was extremely over protective and never at ease. The worry was beyond describable.  I feel like we missed out on the "normal" baby stuff because I was waiting for something bad to happen.

The saying "if I only knew then what I knew now" was written about us.

There are many things I would say to myself but number one would be. It's all going to be okay, have faith.

And that's the truth. Everything has been okay. Some days were definitely scary, challenging, and unpredictable, but in the end it was all okay. And in the days to come it will all be okay, so have faith.
