So, Summer is coming to a close, Paul only has about 3 weeks till he leaves. His recruiter came over last night cause he was in the area and wanted to check up and answer the rest of our questions. He said Paul has airborne school in his contract and that surprised me because I didn't think that was in there. But he is excited about it and I'm happy for him. No matter how long his trainging is he was told he will be home for Christmas, because they Airborne falls during the Christmas Exodus.

Mason is still trying to get himself walking and is getting more and more verbal. I can hardly talk on the phone without having to listen really hard over a loud yelling baby!

Hope alls well!

Only a month!

We are down to Paul only having amonth left before he leaves. He is getting excited and I feel like time , in a way, is dragging. On one hand I want him to go and start so he can be done so I can see him again. On the other hand I don't want to have to do with out him. It's catch-22! He says he is ready and has no regrets. He told me that it was always something he sorta wanted to do and see how it would be so he is ready to experience it. Paul has been spending a lot of time with his friends and getting in all that time and playing that he know he will miss out on.

In other news Mason is about to start walking and I am excited! He is getting in to everything though and Saturday we realized he doesn't like crowds at all. We went to Pauls family reunion and Mason was not happy with all the people getting in his face and talking at him. He broke down and cried... it was so sad to see his little lip poke out. He does the bottom lip thing perfectly.

Anyway, I hope everyone is well!!
XOXO, Stephanie

I am back from my break

I haven't blogged in a while again because I have a had a busy month beginning. We went to Dallas o visit my grandpa for the 4th of July. Let mr tell you 13 hours in a care with a 7 month old baby and 3 other people is hard. I drove the whole way. We left here at 9 am and went to Longview, TX first to pick up my best friend. She was going with us and I was so excited because I hadn't seen her since I had got married. Then we moved on to Dallas. Mason actually wasn't as bad as I though he was going to be. We stopped a lot and my sister and her Boyfriend entertained him the whole way.

Lately I have just been trying to spend time with Paul, but it's getting a little harder because all he wants to do is hang out with his friends. He say's it's because he's not going to get to see them for a while, but he won't get to see me and Mason for a while too. I guess he figures he's "always" around us.. Whatever. I'm sure he will realize he should have spent more time with us when he is gone.

I need to start getting a list together of thing I need him to do before he leaves!
Anyways, I'm going to try to start bloggin again more often!!
xoxo, Steph
