40 days of thankfulness (day 1 con't)

My husband and I met in 1995 in high school. we were in band together. we were good friends. we've been dating since 2000. I can say that we've taken care of each other through thick and thin. even though his job keeps us apart we are deeply together in spirit. I am most thankful for his love and dedication he shows to me and the family. He wouldn't get married to me unless he was able to provide for us, and back then while I was waiting for him, I felt that he was being selfish. I felt like he had put his needs over mine... but I was very wrong.

I love you so much.

2 calendar months left (eep)

two calendar months left before little one makes an appearance. I guess I am going to be as ready as I can be.

jake's learning - he no longer wants to learn his ABC's, he wants to learn everything else! His favorite right now are motion songs and I may get sick of spinning if I have to dance Libby Loo one more time. HAHA.

new laptop, new 'school' year?

I finally got a new laptop to replace the 2006 vaio so hopefully there will be more updates to come as I can 'shoo' jake away to use the computer and while he is entranced by the 'newer' toy I can use the computer instead.

Well we've started jake on startfall. it was kind of an accident that has ballooned in to an obsession with letters and phonics... so i'm kind of just going with his flow. he absorbs so much information! I am a little worried about over doing it but as long as he enjoys it I've decided to stand back and watch him blossom.

I guess I didn't realize it would be this soon that he would be interested in learning letters, i thought he would still be the little nursline who would rather be playing with toys or something.

ahh well I am reminded how time will pass quickly and before I blink one, two, three more times, he'll be in highschool or something and I will be looking back thinking about my little man who wanted desperately to learn his ABCs.

the name game

i think we've finally decided on a name for zombie bean.

myka elina (erina)

we don't know if we want to use the R or the L for romanizing the japanese. we are currently leaning towards the L but I can't shake the fact that it's supposed to be japanese and an R. it'll have kanji in place too so no big deal but i do feel like why even give her a japanese name?
