Better than yesterday...

McKaleigh's behavior is leaps and bounds better than it was yesterday, and I'm so glad. Normally she's very independent and loves playing alone for a good portion of the day. Yesterday she was having none of that! She wanted to be with me constantly, which makes it difficult to do anything, seeing as she's not as teeny tiny as she used to be and is so hard to carry around! Right now she is very happily playing in her jumperoo:).

Michael found out that he's leaving next Saturday instead of next Friday. So at least he'll get to be there for a little bit of McKaleigh's birthday! Well, that is, if they don't leave super early in the morning. We still have to go out and get her presents. I wanted to do it without her, so there's some element of surpise. Even though I doubt she'll get too excited anyways, haha. I'm pretty sure we're going to get her a Fisher Price Little People wagon full of blocks. Maybe we'll get her one other smaller item too. You hate to spend too much on toys at this age, since they outgrow things so quickly.

Michael just sent me a text and said the official list of names of those getting promoted just came out and he is on it! So there is our 100% confirmation that his promotion is happening on the 1st! Yay for raises:)!

One year old and Sgt all in one week;)

My baby girl will be one year old in ten days!!! How crazy!

My husband will be a Sergeant in eight days!!! Finally! Haha.

And nothing significant is going on with me.

I did get a new computer:) It's HP and I love it. It's nice to finally have a built in webcam and mic. Plus, I'm tired of sharing my hubby's computer. I downloaded Google Chrome, and I love that, too! Google really know what it's doing!

So, bad news, right before McKaleigh's birthday, Michael will be leaving for training. So sad! And then sometime near the end of this year he'll be leaving for a year long deployment. I'm really just ready to get it over with, though. It will be a nice opportunity to pay off some big bills. I'm just glad it's only a year. Think of the wives during the world wars! When their husbands left for war they didn't come back until it was over! So I am grateful that it is only one year.

McKaleigh has been a little terror today! She wants my laptop so badly and will not let me be! Normally she play very well by herself, but today every time I put her down she comes straight to me, to steal the computer! I tried to leave my hair down, and she just yanks on it, so hard! I grab her hand and tell her no, but she just thinks it's funny. Oy vey.

What's a girl to do?

I'm not good with titles...

I'm blogging again! Woohoo! Hehe...

So I just got gmail, and have started using all of the google programs, and I gotta say, love it! My computer is broken, so I've been using my hubby's and he has NO spreadsheet or document programs. GoogleDocs definitely comes in handy:).

I've done really well with working out! It's exciting to actually be in a routine of sorts. For so long I was making so many trips. I don't think I was ever home for an entire month, which made it so hard to get into a good routine! I can't believe my daughter is going to be one in a month! I should probably call in to set up her one year appointment soon.

The crib thing... so didn't work. I have her back in bed with me, and I'm pretty sure we're co-sleeping for the long haul, lol. Things went well for the first two days, then she realized she could stand up and scream her head off. We live in an apartment, lol, I was scared the MPs were gonna come knockin' on my door! Haha. She sounded like she was being tortured and I just couldn't handle it:(.

Hubby is gone, TDY (temporary duty) in Missouri. He'll be back soon, but it's been crappy having him gone. Can't wait for him to get back:). Just a small preview of what next year will be like.
