Sitting here drinking my morning coffee and watching my little munchkin play in his playroom, and I can’t help but think about the next few months and what they mean.
First, there is going to be a month apart for my husband and our family. He has to go away for training and unfortunately, I have no say whatsoever. We have a wedding to go to so I thought he might get exempt but when duty calls, it calls and I don’t see that happening.
It means a 7 hour drive back to Ohio for me and the two munchkins, and I’m kind of nervous to do it alone this time.
We switched Bubba to a big boy car seat and I’m deathly afraid of it. When he sleeps, he looks like he’s strangling himself and since it’s rear facing, it scares the bejesus out of me. But he has to be in it so what can I do?!
It means making another road trip to Chicago but this time… To see my cousin get married!! I’m SO excited because I wasn’t able to be at the last family wedding and it killed me. I’m so excited to see everyone and enjoy some time together.
With fall approaching, it means our little man’s first Halloween! He is going to be Bam Bam with one of his girlfriends as Pebbles; precious I know. We will be making their costumes so stay tuned for our adventure in that!

It means our first Thanksgiving away from family, but our first Thanksgiving with our Army family. My friend J said she would make the turkey (thank God) because I’m sure I’d burn the house down trying. I’ll be sticking to the side dishes…

And the thing I’m most excited for… Bubba’s first CHRISTMAS!!!!! I seriously am peeing my pants with excitement! What’s the next best thing to believing in Santa? Playing Santa! I can’t wait… Like seriously I’ve already started shopping. Now to find places to put this stuff…
And last but not least, Bubba’s first birthday. Cue waterworks. I can’t believe in fourish months he will be one. I want, actually NEED time to slow down. I’m not ready to start crossing these milestones off his baby book checklist. All the more reason to cherish each day even more than I already do.

And speaking of that, someone is ready to snuggle with me for his morning nap…duty calls 🙂
