Finally an update!

Sorry it's been so long since I've last blogged. But just to touch on the subject of my previous blog, Jordan said he's thinking of talking with the VA about it but he also said there are more people out there who are more deeply affected by PTSD and they need more help than he does.

Anyway, since that last blog, a lot has been going on. We went up to his mom's for a couple nights and we were actually able to have a date night fully alone and go out and get something to eat. It was so nice. I would love to do it again some time soon.
Here's a picture of out eats from that night:

Not much else noteworthy happened. Aurelia turned 6 months old! Holy crap when did that happen?? She's still teething, isn't crawling yet but can get around by rolling and using her arms as like paddles in the water. She loves her Sophie Giraffe and Woodour's Bear as well as her star stacker and any tag she can find to chew on. It's funny, the little bear came with a teething toy attached to it and it has more scratch marks than teeth marks. Here she is listening to music with daddy on youtube. She loves the sound of banjos.

Rosslyn is really good as well. As cute and sassy as ever. We let her spend the weekend with Jordan's mom over Memorial day and when she got back, she had a full on meltdown because she had to leave her cousin. I'm talking screaming, crying, growling (grrrr), nearly puking, scratching me and so much more. I don't know why she does it either. It was sad and very upsetting at the same time. I didn't want to see her crying but I was upset that she was behaving like that since she never had before. And she did it again after we took a shopping trip last week. But thankfully those episodes are few and far between.

Friday was Jordan's sister's high school graduation. Jordan couldn't go because he didn't get off of work in enough time to make the 3 hour drive and still be able to see her graduate. But she's coming in to stay with us for a few days before she starts cosmetology school so that'll be nice. On the drive up, I decided to leave fairly early to beat the heat since I don't have a working air conditioner in my car. Well, it didn't work. We were about 45 minutes into the drive and Rosslyn got sick and barfed everywhere! So I had to stop at a walmart which thankfully I was right in front of, get her some new clothes since she puked all over them and let her in out of the heat for a bit. We got back in the car and she fell asleep and all was well, or so I thought. I was maybe 10 minutes from Jordan's mom's house and she puked again.... so we stopped, got her some gatorade and went to the house. She took another nap and was fine when she got up. Then, before Jessca's graduation, I decided to take her and the girls out to eat. We made it 30 minutes before she puked in my car again and I had to stop at another walmart to get her a clean outfit. We went into the restaurant where she vomited once again. Then we called Jordan's mom to get her because her car has air and she was seemingly fine for the rest of the day. Then we went to the graduation and wall was fine there. Everyone had accepted their diplomas, Jessca and another girl sung a beautiful song and it was at the final benediction that Rosslyn puked once more. I grabbed her and tried running to the bathroom. I was holding her and her puke was just running down my back. It was like someone pouring a cup of hot water down my back. Very unfun.

So the moral of this story is I can't take Rosslyn anywhere on long trips until my air is fixed. She gets overheated way too easily.

And that's just about it. We went shopping last week and I got a Nook Color!! I love it so much. The first thing I did was buy Catching Fire, the second book in the Hunger Games series and I read it in a matter of days. That's what I love most about it, is it's much easier to have access to it and read. I'm literally reading ever chance I get. When I'm feeding the baby, when they're outside playing, when they're asleep. So it was definitely worth the money.

I'll leave you all with a few more pictures taken with Instagram from my iPhone since I'm a jerk and I haven't used my camera in about 2 weeks.

Aurelia and Jordan's mom's dog Hooch. She loves him so much. She just giggles and grabs at his face and he lets her! He's such a good dog.

I am so jealous of your Nook!!! The girls are precious, as always! Its great that J is thinking about talking to the VA! The treatment there isnt cookie cutter at all, and they give him as much or as little as he needs. Its so typical for men to brush it over, but they should take the care they deserve. My husband was the same way for years! Baby steps!
