What we have been up to

I am not the best blogger in the world because i can come up with any reason to not get on and write. I have been lazy and there is nothing else I can say about it. I do love spending time with my boy and everyday he gets bigger and it just makes me so happy. I love watching him grow up. It is crazy to think that just a year ago from the 4th of July I found out that I would be having a baby and now he is here and smiling and laughing and pooping, it is just so exciting to me.

James has been working like crazy and is doing really well with the early mornings. I spend most of my days hanging out with my little man and trying to clean up the house which doesn't go to well except for the dishes because I can do those. Motherhood is alot of work but i love everything about it. There are some days where i don't want to get all fixed up and do my hair but I do it anyways because it makes me feel better. If I have any advice it would be to always get ready for the day.

It seems that almost everyday that he gets home from work we run over to my parents house and go swimming. Declan loves the pool and just hangs out in it. We love being with family and how much time we get to spend with them.

We love our new house and I need to post pictures of how it is looking but lets just say I am super slow at unpacking. Speaking of the house we have been super unlucky with some certain little visitors that are nasty and making be want to scream. Those nasty things that I am speaking of are scorpions. They are nasty and mean and I kill them every chance that I get. We have found three in the house and as soon as I see them I go at them with a hammer and carpet cleaner. Now you ask why carpet cleaner, well because it has a wonderful bottle that shoots a straight stream right on them. We walk around with a black light because it makes them light up neon green. We go hunting in the backyard and we make look ghetto but we get the job done.

Other then the nasty little monsters things are going really good. I am going to be painting the kitchen red and the down stairs bathroom with pictures to follow. I love the fact that i get to do whatever I want to my house and make it look the way that I want it to.

Here are some pictures to hold you over until I post more.
