The countdown has begun

This weekend was amazing and the only thing that could have made it more perfect would have been having Jason home.  Speaking of Jason coming home, the countdown has begun he will be home in approximately 33 days.  I am ecstatic because he is due to come home the night before my birthday!  The last few weekends have been a little rough, because Makenzie has been sick.  Last weekend Makenzie had the flu and this week she has been coughing and it got so bad that Saturday morning I took her to the doctor just to find out that she has and ear infection.  Fun times...

Oh, how much i love the terrible two's.  She now outright tells me no and doesn't do what I ask her and to make things worse she throws herself on the ground.  Oh, and the best part of this lovely terrible two stage she throws things and shoves them out of the way when she doesn't want to do what she has been asked.  She unfortunately has had a lot of time outs and time spent in our room lately.  If any one has any ideas of how to deal with this PLEASE help. 

Well, that's all for now I will post a couple cute pictures of Makenzie in  a few days.

Thanksgiving and 2nd Birthday

(Couldn't resist)

Okay, so I know that I am super behind and have a ton to talk about. First off last month I finished my second Bachelors degree in Paralegal studies and am now studying for my LSATs which I take in Feb. Never seems to be a dull moment in my life, but everyone who lknows me knows that i love to be super busy.

Second, thing is that Jason will be home in just ofver a month and I am super excited about that. Well, technically he won't be home in Virginia but at least in the states which is exciting. I know that he is as ready to be home as we are ready for him to com home. The next year and half is still going to be hard with being stationed in Mississippi and than being deployed for another six months after that he will be back in Virginia hopefully. If he doesn't make it back here we will go where ever he is stationed, because I can't do another separationa dn it's completely unfair to Jason and Makenzie. So, just a little bit longer.

Thridly, Makenzie just celebrated her 2nd birthday on November 30th. We where lucky enough to be able to spend it in Charlotte with Jason's brother and sister. The group of us took the kids to Monkey Joes a bouncy world for a little fun and entertainment. I have never been, but it was fabulous fun for not just the kids but the adults as well. After Monkey Joes we went back to my sister in-laws house for dinner, cake and presents. Makenzie had a princess theme to the party and just about everyone gave her something with a princess on it. I have put some pictures of her cake in this blog just to show you how fabulous the cake was. Thanks Stacey for finding it, it was perfect and Makenzie loved it too.

Lastly, Makenzie had her 2 year check today and she is perfectly healthy and progressing nicely. The doctor was impressed with her usage of words and the vast amount of words that she used and put together. Makenzie weighs 31.1 pounds and is 35 inches which is in the 90th percentile. I think height wise she is probably in the 80th. They had some technical difficulty getting her height and I don't think either one of the numbers are right, but what are you going to do about it. I guess when we take her in again in a year she will be a half inch shorter than what she is supposed to be :)
That's a quick update of everything that has been going on and hopefully I haven't forgotten anything.
