For all of those wondering how Curan is doing, he seems to be doing a lot better this week than last week. He is super busy, with about 30 hours of work to get done in a 24 hour period of time. He gets very little sleep and very little time to eat, so he said that he leaves meal time hungry. They have to memorize two quotes per day, plus a whole lot of other military history and protocol which they have to be able to recite at any given point throughout their 13 weeks. Needless to say, he is very stressed, but doing his very best to keep his eye on the goal.

Levi and I are doing well. We can get a little bored sometimes, but Netflix and outings throughout the week tend to help with that. He is eating a whole lot of food for such a little guy, and only weighs 17 lbs 11 oz putting him in the 4th percentile for weight. He's very active, though so the doctor seems to think that is about where he is supposed to be. He is still trying to walk, and has been standing up by himself without pulling up on anything. He is such a sweet little guy to have around!

Anyway, that's about all for now! Hope you all have a great week!

Our Crazy Life

Well, I have been thinking for a while about starting a blog especially since we will be moving shortly, and this will be a good way for people to keep up with how we are and what we are doing. I suppose I will start with what is going on now! Curan is gone until the end of August, and Levi and I are on our own! It is definitely an adjustment to be a "single" mom, but I think we are managing fairly well. We have a lot of people that are willing to help out, and that have shown a great deal of concern for us. Thanks to everyone who has reached out! Even if it was just to say that you are here for us if we need you, you really have no idea how much that means. We will soon be in a place where it will be much more difficult to find people who are so caring.

Levi is acting different since Curan has been gone, and I know that he really misses his daddy. He is learning new things everyday, and it amazes me so much to see all that his little brain is starting to comprehend. He is really just a joy to have and I thank God everyday that he blessed us with such an awesome, adorable, smart little boy (I'm not biased at all :-) ). He has taken 3 steps so far, and is really trying to work up the courage to start full on walking. He will pull up on the couch, raise his arms up in the air with a sheepish grin as if to say "Im gonna do it!" and then falls. Soon, though, I know I will be chasing him everywhere.

Well I suppose that is about it for now! Thanks for reading :)
