It's Been Way Too Long......

First off, I want to apologize for not blogging in so long! Life has been extremely busy...in a good way! We are chugging along here in Mobile, Alabama, and we have been very blessed along the way!

Kamryn has been moved up to an older classroom at daycare. I had very mixed emotions about this. There are no cribs in this class, just toddler cots. No bottles. No binkies. No high chairs. She sits at a little table, and eats in the cafeteria. Can you believe it? My little baby now eats in the cafeteria! I was a little misty-eyed when I dropped her off for her first day in her new class. Adjusting to this new schedule has been a little tough for Kamryn. She only gets one nap a day as opposed to two naps. So, when I pick her up, she is EXTREMELY cranky. She is sooooooo overwhelmingly tired. I try to put her down for a nap as soon as I can when I get home. She is getting more and more used to the routine. But today, she cried when I dropped her off, and that made me sad. She rarely does that. But when she does, it just tears me up. But her teacher assures me that Kamryn always stops crying in mere seconds after I leave.

Our family has wasted no time getting in the swing of summer. Last weekend, we celebrated my niece's six year birthday with a pool party! We have decided that Kamryn will easily be a water-baby. She loves the water! She even got her head wet, and loved it! Of course, being around a pool is scary. When I was a news reporter, I did stories on tragedy after tragedy of little toddlers finding their way to the pool and falling in. We would like Kamryn to learn how to swim as soon as she is physically able to. But I can tell you this...she loves the water! For now, she has no idea that bad things can happen.

This weekend, we celebrate father's day. We will once again head to Hattiesburg. I will spend Friday night with my dad and Saturday night with Josh's dad. Josh's dad hasn't been able to really spend a lot of time with Kami. So, I am excited about spending the day at Rowell Ranch. We are also blessed to spend the day with Josh's pa paw, who fought for his life last week. After prostate surgery, he had a stroke and kidney failure. (it's a long story that I won't get into in this blog). But pa paw is a tough cookie! He pulled through and he is back to his old self!

We are also praying for our friends Glyn and Ashley, whose twins are due in about four weeks. So far, things are looking good! I am excited about the impending birth. It also brings back memories of Kami. I remember being so happy the day I gave birth. I also remember struggling to adjust to motherhood. Indeed, life will be different for the Guidry's, especially with two babies. Can you imagine? I know twins are quite common, but it's hard for me to comprehend the thought of having TWO newborns at one time! I know my friends will be overwhelmed, but they will also be very blessed. I can't wait to meet the twins!

I will post Kami swimming pictures shortly. Much love! XOXOXOXOXOX!
