Holy smokes it's been quite a while since I posted on here. It's been almost 2 years. Well, I apologize. In those 2 years a lot has happened! Elijah is potty trained (mostly lol), Jayson has started Kindergarten and last June we PCS'd to Fort Huachuca, Arizona. It's been an adjustment but we're very happy to be here even if it will be for a short stint just like last time. It'll be short because last November, Jay got selected to become a Warrant Officer (WO). He will begin our journey on that venture in October.
As a family, we've gone through a few transformations. Last November, our marriage hit a rocky time. Since then we've been seeing therapists on our own and a Chaplain together. Around December things started to seem to be working themselves out. It's been work but it's good to know we're in a better place now.
In January we started talking about our future and what we wanted out of life. When you have a rough patch in your marriage, you don't know what your future might hold so when things start getting better, you start wanting to plan and see if your thoughts on the future mesh well with your partners (still). I've regretted Jay getting a vasectomy pretty much since about 6 months from the time he got it. We were rash in our decision and I think having a difficult baby (Eli) caused us to rush our decision. Well, we've talked and talked some more and have decided to reverse our decision and try for more children. But you can read more about that in our joined blog Our Journey from Cesarean to Natural Birth. We've been waiting for referrals on vasectomy reversal and talking about our birthing options. Quite a bit of baby talk over there, so don't say you weren't warned! LOL
I'll probably cloth diaper, breast feed, co-sleep, baby wear and all the great stuff that comes with attachment parenting. All the wonderful things I miss about having a baby. Jay is very excited because we're going to attempt to have a baby while he's home to actually be there for. He's missed both kid's births and this would be an amazing thing for us to share!
Well, I'm running out of things to catch the blog up on so I'll leave the rest for another day.
I've missed ya'll!
