Semester's End

The semester is over. It's actually been over for about a week and a half. I'm just now getting around to having a little time to blog.

It was a little bit of a rough semester. It was the first one where I didn't have the "easy" courses. I made it through though, and I made it through with shining colors! I'm so proud of myself...

I MADE THE DEAN'S LIST!!!!!!

Yup, that's right....ME. No matter how hard I tried in high school, I could never get better than a 'C' average, and here I am ending my Sophomore year of college on the dean's list!! I even got an 'A' in chemistry! That's one class I did not think I would do well in at all, and I did just the opposite. :)

It's a pretty amazing feeling.

I have never been one to brag much and boast like this, but I feel I really deserve to right now. For once I'm not afraid to say, "Look at me!"

Spring semester will be a bit harder. Anatomy and physiology=yuck. Plus the lab. Not sure what is in this lab....kind of looking forward to it. Maybe that's the medical student in me. Hahaha.

This next semester will be a challenge no doubt, but I can do it. I can do it. I can.

I'm going to do it.

A Season of Firsts

*Side note: I am going to TRY to set aside one day a week to blog, that way I can empty my head weekly...not let so much build up, good or bad. We will see how it goes.*



December is here, it's officially the holiday season. This season is going to be full of a lot of firsts for my little Q-man. He already had his first Thanksgiving, which was fun.

I can't wait until Christmas this year. We don't do a lot of presents at our house. After all, presents are not what it's all about, but I can't wait to watch Quentin rip and tear into that paper...will probably have to stop him from eating if of course, but it will be fun to watch. :)

A big first I am hoping for, is him being able to meet is Uncle Nickie for the first time...that will be a precious moment!

Developmentally, Quentin has a lot of firsts coming. He is on the brink of a few of them happening in the next few weeks. He is almost crawling, and starting to pull up on things. His pincher grasp is getting better, and he is becoming able to understand and show affection...

All at once...

Too much at once...

Slow down kid!!!!



He has the best little faces and smiles. I make him smile and snap those funny faces as often as I can.

Perfect example of one of those funny faces. Love it. :)

One of my favorites. Looks like he is thinking, "What am I doing?!" So great!

Look at that big smile!!! Such a happy baby. He loves playing with Piper. He lights up when his siblings walk in the room.

I could post so many more pictures, but it would take all day...I'm going to have several novels of pictures by the time he is grown. That's ok. :)

I will just be that crazy mom that has a MILLIONS pictures of their kids...I don't mind being that crazy mom. I will have BOOKS of memories to reminisce over. I'm happy with that.
