I'm done working! Well, done working and getting paid for it! ;-) Yippee! I can't believe it's actually here! Pinch me! Actually, it's a little bitter, sweet.. Everyone here has been great.... I've made some great, life-long friends and I'm going to miss seeing their smiling faces everyday! Luckily, they're very close and I will be able to pop-in anytime! ;-) Seriously, Love you girls! Thanks for the going-away breakfast and for everyone wearing pink! Most of the guys did too... or close to it! ;-) I appreciate it and you so much!

I've been praying for this to happen for a long time and the timing hasn't been better or couldn't have been better! I have no doubt in my mind that the Lord's hand orchestrated each move since Matt and I first started 'planning' for this venture! Actually, who am I fooling, the Lord knew BEFORE Matt and I ever even thought about it! He is an all-knowing and all-loving God and I just feel so undeserving for what all He has blessed me with!

Cyd dressed in her 80's one piece for me today. It's going to be a pain changing diapers, but I couldn't resist! It's SO CUTE! Of coarse, Target, and of coarse, Animal Cracker in hand!


Our summer has already started to fill up and I have come to the conclusion that it's NEVER going to slow down! ;-) I've got a trip scheduled next week to visit the twins, Matt starts traveling 4 days a week for a month (June) then 3 days a week for the next month (July). Cyd & I are going with him to Atlanta the third week. Also in July, we have a family vacation planned to Connecticut and New York to visit my Aunt Carolyn & Uncle Mario! August, we'll be moving into our new house, September Baby Amelia/Cecilia (yes, I'm annoying and have been toying with the name of Cecilia even after I declared to the world her name is/was going to be Amelia) will grace us with her presence... Throw in birthday parties for nieces & nephews and weddings and it's making for an exhausting summer! It will all be SO MUCH FUN though! I'm just a bit overwhelmed right now, b/c I just haven't let myself think of anything else lately other than leaving work to be with Cydni. ****Which, if I'm going to be honest with you, I'm getting scared! All that I've known is full-time work and all that Cyd has known is going to hang-out with other kiddos! I hope she likes that I'm devoting every bit of my being to her and doesn't get bored with me!!! ****

I just LOVE her tired eyes in the morning!

Luckily, with all this happening, I won't have to worry about working on top of it all!

God is so good! I hope you can see the smile threw the screen!

Anyways, that's it from me! Have a fantastic weekend!


Last night, I found Cydni just sitting in her play room playing with her 'i-dog.' I thought it was so cute and snapped some pictures real quick!

I see you out of the corner of my eye mommy...

Sorry, I'm not looking.

Congrats on your decision to stay home full time! It is definitely the most rewarding full-time job I've ever had! You're going to love it. It's the most important job you can evr have!
Emme has that "80s" outfit too! I saw it at Target and couldn't resist. Too cute.
