the Holidays

Tuesday, December 2, 2008

I have not blogged in a while so here I go. We had a really nice Thanksgiving week. My husband's father, step-mother, and his brother came for a visit. They had a blast with Lukas and Thanksgiving was great! Naptime and bedtime has continued to be a battle with Lukas but I'm getting used to it and dealing with it better now.
My husband finally got his official orders to report to Hawaii in the spring. It looks like we will be leaving Florida sometime in April but we are not sure on the exact dates yet. I am excited but nervous about the move. It's sort of bittersweet.
I am really looking forward to our trip home to Louisiana for Lukas's birthday and Christmas. I cannot believe my baby is going to be 2 years old. I have been thinking a lot about when he was born lately and how lucky we are to both be here. I think the reality of me actually almost dying has only just recently sank in because I didn't think much of it at the time. I just did what I had to do and made it through it. I am so blessed to be here and to have my beautiful little boy. We are going to have a Spongebob (his favorite character) Birthday Party for him at my parents' home in Louisiana. This will probably be our last trip home for a very long time with our move to Hawaii coming up pretty soon, so I plan on trying to make the most out of it.
