For those of you that don't know Cohen and I have moved to Florida,
and are anxiously awaiting the day when Jerry can join us!!!! We came early to save some money and so I can be home with Cohen during the day (I'll be waiting tables at night....yay! It's like being 18 again!lol. But it gives me the flexibility to be home with Cohen in the day and to get back to Vegas to see my man graduate at the beginning of may. Then Jerry will come back to Florida with me for 2 weeks and then have to go back to Vegas for 1 more month to tie up a class. Then hopefully he will have found a job by then..but if not then we will be with my parents until he finds one. It's hard to be without him, but we are making the best of it...I work 4 nights a week and I try to shoot for the weekends so I don't sit and pout :). And I love having my days with Cohen. It has made me oh so much more decisive that I want to make being home with my kids my goal and priority till they are in school.
We go to the park and play group and the library for story time and when I'm feeling super ambitious the beach (It's so fun but not as relaxing with a 2 year old that wants to be by the water the whole time!! And when he's not doing that he's talking to a million strangers!!!! plus it's been windy and not THAT warm...he doesn't mind...but if you notice most of our pics I'm wearing a sweatshirt. Cohen isn't in one because he's already drenched it before the picture is even taken!!!! He LOVES the water and the birds and the sand and everything!)
I have also taken up a new Saturday morning hobby of Garage Sale hunting. I'm border line obsessed :).Let's see what else, Our ward is good....Sundays are by FAR the hardest day of the week for me, I ache for Jerry that day...but I've made a few friends in the ward through play group and relief society, there is a heavy military influence out here with Eglin Airforce Base, so there are a lot of women that feel my pain as far as being apart from their men so it's nice to have some people to relate to on some level.
Cohen has made the transition amazingly well. My parents have a chihuahua named Dexter and Cohen LOVES LOVES LOVES him. They chase each other around here all day long. Cohen loves to go on walks if Dexter can come because he gets to hold the leash. He is also sleeping in the big boy bed now! So there is a milestone. He's been getting out of bed the last couple nights but we're starting to get it under control :). He loves to wake my sister Dani up every morning and explore her room with Dexter.... He loves to ride in the golf cart. And all the attention from Grandma and Grandpa Skinner. So that's a relief.
He does ask about Grandma and Grandpa Moser, and his cousins and Aunt Susan from time to time...I tell him "They are in VEGAS" and he says "BeGAS!!!!"....thank heavens for skype. It really has been such a blessing....Especially for Jerry and us.
As for my pregnancy, it's going well, I'm 22 weeks and feeling good. I havn't really told my work yet...I decided to just let them figure it out. It wasn't something I wanted to spring on them right when I got the job. But it's hard work but, bright side is I'm exercising right? :) lol. It's a restaurant right on the water, you can see all the boats come in from fishing and what not.
Jerry meanwhile is plugging away at school, and applying for jobs and working out like a maniac!!! He's already lost 13 pounds since I left. I'm so proud of him in all those respects, he sure works hard and is so so good to me. I don't know what I did to get so lucky as to land someone like him. I thank God every night.
And that is our nutshell! Hope all is well for everyone!
Oh!!! And Jerry and I finally decided on a name for Cohen's baby sister. She will be Brinley Eve Moser. We are so excited to add her to our family!!!!
Conference in the Car - Dallin and I listen to Conferences in the car. It's really my way of getting some spiritual uplifting on the way to work. It works pretty well. I am curren...
