Where oh Where is Kelly?

Standard

I have really slacked off on blogging lately. I am happy to say it is because I have been busy!

Another day another dollar

Work of course is always that. There is always a feast or famine going on there, but I enjoy helping moms and babies breastfeed. I am excited to say that I will be starting my WIC lactation rotations in on of our local hospitals starting in March. (as long as they don’t find another reason to delay it!) My new BFPC’s are well incorporated in our clinic and we all work well together. So glad to be working with these group of ladies!

Growing in leaps and bounds

The kids are of course busy with school. The girl keeps me hopping with all her speech and debate tournaments and LATE night pick ups and early morning drop offs. But she is doing well. Going to districts with her Prose. Has placed numerous times at contests with her DI and her policy debates. So very proud of her. She is also maintaining straight A’s!! And this is with her honors classes as well. She has started driving me around town and taking drivers ed. I enjoy the chaffering, but I do look forward to getting my car back with my seat in the correct position. She is shorter than me and I always forget when I get in after she drives. *knees in chest* lol

The oldest is gearing up for graduation and I am so not ready for that in the least. He has decided that the military is not for him, I am undecided about that, but I do know he has to do this on his own. I look at each holiday as my last one with him, but I have to remind myself, it isn’t the last one, he’s just moving on. Growing his wings and taking flight, but I am not ready for him to do that yet!

He and G are such good buds he made this his profile picture on Facebook. Brotherly love! 🙂

J & J are running everywhere. After we moved they got their own bedrooms and the fighting has reduced drastically, but of course they are so close in age and Big J is the youngest in his class he feels he needs to boss Little J around.

G is growing so fast and he’s discovering his voice it’s hard to believe he was just crawling this time last year.

Boy’s first hair cut.

Back!

He is toddling around everywhere and telling us all about it and taking names! I am just waiting for him to start saying complete sentences.  He has his friends at day care he loves going to and spending time with. Loves his Mrs Lori and Mr Bobby.

Cover Your Bum

The diaper bank is doing well. We had another purchase of diapers for the bank and we are currently helping 6 families with 2 graduates!!! We are waiting on the shipment of the Econobums to help the families on our waiting list.

We will be participating in the Great Cloth Diaper Change April 20 and have hosted 2 Cloth 101 classes at a local health food store. They are so glad to have us there and are happy to help us. We hope to have a good fundraiser at the GCDC and raise a little more to help more families. The word is out and moms are getting the help they need. Love doing this.

We will have our official website in the coming month! My amazing friend Brit has offered to develop, design and host our very own dot org!! This is so cool. Lisa and I are going to have nice photos taken of us and the boys to have on our site.

We also were interviewed by a reporter for a new local magazine, From the Nest. They focus on momenterpreneurs. We are excited for that and are working on photos for that as well!

So that is how my life if going in 700 words or less!

Stay warm!
