While it is easy to say "it wasn't meant to be," the people saying that aren't the ones that will have to figure out how to pay the bills. This said...I do realize that God has a plan and unfortunately it isn't always the same as mine. I am sure that His plan is better (okay, I know it will be better) but for those of us with control issues this is a hard thing to surrender. With this surrender comes the realization that when I initially found out I was going to lose my job, I figured we had until the end of June before our savings ran out. June has come and gone and we are still okay.
So. Knowing this, saying it out loud, reading it...why do I still have problems trusting his plan fearlessly and without question?

The second one was caught after Quinn gave the dog's hairy back a big, open-mouthed kiss. He didn't seem to like it (Quinn that is) but kept trying even after this pic. He really gets quite a kick out of Jeb. He often smiles and talks to him even though Jeb pays him very little mind at this point (unless there is still tastiness around Quinn's mouth...then there is licking attempted when he thinks I'm not looking. Yuck.)

West Palm Beach to be exact. The weekend before E started school, I left for a long weekend to go to WPB to visit one of my dear friends, Chris. WITHOUT KIDS! It was a wonderful time. We were able to spend girl time together, just talking, hanging on the beach, eating (okay sometimes she forgot to feed me but I quickly learned to make myself at home) and enjoying her son, Anthony (21 months) and her husband, Dan. Her mom made some killer food for us and I met their friend, AJ. For three nights I slept with NO disturbances! (okay...there was the slight disturbance of a 16 month old around 7-8am-ish in the morning...but that's better than 3 and unforunately I was already up!!!) It was awesome.
It was wonderful to reconnect and just relax. It is amazing to have a friend in life that together we can fill in any amount of time with talking and not run out of subjects. To know that no matter how much time passes, we can always pick up where we left off. To know that we can go years without seeing each other but she is only a call away and there aren't many secrets. To know that we have both grown from single, goin' out ladies to being wives and mothers and we are STILL friends. To know that there have been bumps along the road in our friendship but ultimately the bond hasn't changed. Freakin' fabulous. Love you Chris!

He rolls all over the place but hasn't attempted to crawl yet. Seems to be a little annoyed with the whole process of laying on his belly to get somewhere. I think he would rather just move to walking or jumping. He is definitely a mover and a shaker. That said, he LOVES his jumper. I sometimes watch him and wonder how he doesn't get whiplash. I think I would just throw up.
This is a favorite game with daddy: Daddy blows in my belly and I suck on his head. Hilarious to see but slightly gross afterwards.
