It's been a while..

Now that I "quit" my deployment blogging, I haven't been on blogspot in a while. Hubby got home from afghanistan the first week of august and it's been a wild ride since! I found out I was pregnant august 28th. :))

Baby number TWO was born May 3, that may have something to do with my lack of free time ;) Her name is Blakely Reese and she is perfect (high maintenance maybe) but perfect anyway. I don't remember Karmen crying this much, but she seems to be (tmi) gassier than her older sister was. On a very, very bright note though she sleeps much better at 17 days old than karmen slept at 6 months old so thats a blessing. 

I'm on maternity leave, which will last until late July and although I'm having a rough time adjusting to being home all.the.time I'm loving the time with the girls and hubby. I work 3 12 hour shifts a week, so I leave the house at 6 am on the days I work and don't get home until almost 8 pm, so its nice to have so much more time with everyone. Karmen is definitely loving it.

We moved to a new home on December 1st. We started house hunting as soon as hubby got home from deployment during his month of leave he got afterwards. We found the PERFECT home after only looking at a couple and we still love it. 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, swimming POOL!, hardwood floors, etc. We love the neighborhood and so far have no complaints. We have renters in our old home and thats going good so far.

Anyway, that's about all the updates I have for this first post back. I will hopefully have many funny stories to share this summer staying home with a 4.5 year old funny, silly girl and a newborn.
