my amazing family

Andy and I just celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary, and at first I didn’t really think too much about it, but honestly it is starting to sink in and I really really REALLY love him!!  We have had 4 amazing happy years, and each one gets better and better.  Add in Jackson and its like a dream life come true!  So apparently my dream life is a little family in a little house in Arroyo Grande, a hardworking and fun husband, and a little boy that mostly drives me nuts but I can’t stop thinking about him every second of every day!  I am so happy to be meeting new friends and wandering the village with Jack.  Every single day I am waiting and waiting for Andy to come home from work. 

So here’s to dream life’s coming true!  AND all my seeds sprouted this year- ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!  Thank you to everyone I love and get to share my wonderful happy life with!!!

Oh AND Andy has this cowboy hat- dorky and strange at first, and now I totally dig it.  He looks goooooood.  :)

i want a baby!

major baby fever, they are everywhere.  Andy and I have decided to try for another little person, and I can’t be more excited.  Jack is almost 2, so he will be just under 3 when the new one comes along.  I think this will be a good gap for Jackson to be an older toddler but they can still play together in a couple years. 

It is crazy to think of having 2 little ones, but people do it all the time so I know it is possible!  Sometimes I am so tired or have to put in alot of time for work it almost seems irrational for me to want another baby, but in my heart I know that I want just one more… and Jackson will have so much fun with a little baby.  It is more important for me to have a happy family than stress myself over working too much just to have more play money. Work has been getting busier and busier, and I have been doing less and less advertising, so I am in the process of re-organizing my business process to be more efficient and profitable so I can spend more time with Andy, Jack, and another tiny.  It’s what I want, and I have been going back and forth between family and work-family-work-family-work- family- work.  And the answer is….. FAMILY!!! YAY!

So hopefully there will be a little tiny in my near future to squish and love and kiss.  Jackson has been so much fun and has changed my whole outlook on life and what is important.  It’s kinda weird to think so much about another person…. I still stare at him and am obsessed with how cute and perfect he his… even when he is throwing mud on me, or jumping off the couch, or waking me up way too early, or not eating his veggies, or dumping sand in my kitchen, or ripping my ranunculas out of the ground.  He is fun and loves his family and grandparents and aunts and uncles and has so many little quirks.  I can’t wait for another one to obsess over.

the new year.. 2011

it has taken me awhile now to think of a resolution.  of course there is running more, but i want to do that anyways so i don’t think that counts. 

so i came up with… be better mommy and do more fun stuff with Jackson.

he’s growing so fast it’s unbelievable and I want him to have as much fun as possible.  so to achieve my resolution, we will have a schedule (go figure i would do that) of super fun things that we need to do everyday.  i am thinking each day will be start with breakfast, then something outdoors.  running or walking, learning to ride his bike, or digging in the dirt.  after that we will come in a do something artistic and learning-related like painting, drawing, gluing, etc.

after that is lunch and then naps.  once he wakes up it usually late afternoon, but there is still time to go into town.  we can get shopping done or stop by the park before its too late. 

i think we will have fun!!! so now i just need to do it….
