I realize that I haven't blogged in a super long time, but I have felt so busy lately. I am now the teacher and director of preschool at Lincoln. It is great because my pay more than doubled and I am still working the same amount of hours, maybe a few more, but I bring home most of the stuff I need to prep for my days so I can be home with Benny Boy. I love my job and it is the perfect amount of time to be gone each day. I am only gone about 4 hours a day, and Ben takes about a 3 hour nap when I am gone so I don't miss much. I give you stay at home moms some props though, I don't think I could stay home everyday, I need that time away. Maybe if I was rich and could go shopping or something, but I'm not so I would be stuck at home....Plus I love teaching!!! It is a blast and good to know all those years in college have paid off.
The roof to our house will be finished this week, yeah! Then it should be pretty fast after that. I hope to be in our house by Ben's birthday, but that may be wishful thinking... We are making a few changes to the house. We are making our master bath bigger and putting in a tub, then we are also making a walk in closet for our bedroom. Then we are making a breakfast bar in our kitchen. I am super excited. It has been nice staying with the family, but we want our house back. While we are so thankful to Derek's family, we need our own space, and I am sure they want their house back.
Ben has changed so much, he has such a personality and is such a ham. He loves to flirt, especially with old ladies at the grocery store... It cracks me up.
Here are some updates for Ben:
-crawling all over the place
-eating anything and everything we put in front of him
-liking formula less and less
-standing up
-walks when we hold his hands
-sings when he plays on his little piano
-and he loves laughing!!!!
Ben goes to the doctor in a couple of weeks so I will post weight and height stuff when I get that info.
Oh and Jenna, I am totally Jealous!!!!! We will be trying in about 6 months for number two. Totally looking forward to growing our family.
To all you mommy bloggers, keep it up, and I will try to be better about it as well. It is so nice to know that I am not alone with what us mommies go through.

Nice to have you back. However, I need Ben's piano so I can hear him sing. Didn't know that one.
