I can't believe that it is almost May. This year is going by very quickly and it doesn't help that we are counting down the days until our next baby girl will be here. 7 weeks and counting. I still don't know if I am ready for it, but there's no delaying the inevitable. Bethany is growing up too fast for me. I look at her and wish that she would be the cuddler she once ways, but seeing her explore and learn new things makes me happy too. We transformed her crib into a toddler bed, which has been a little trying, but surprisingly she took to it pretty well. I think she enjoys the freedom aspect of it, but I don't enjoy having to clean up after she's pulled all of her clothes out of the drawers. She is supposed to be taking a nap right now, but I can hear her pushing on the door. Thankfully she can't reach the handle yet.

I finally had a talk with Justin last night. I have been feeling very worn out and need a break but haven't been able to get one. We decided that one weekend day he will be taking full responsibility for her, from when she gets up to when she goes to bed. I am hoping that this arrangement will help me as it gets closer to my due date, to finally be able to rest and put up my feet.

I started school again and it's been going well so far. I am waiting on my financial aid to come through right now. The first class is about critical thinking and I kind of want to scream, but I need to get through it to be able to move on.

We are waiting now for Justin to submit his package to become a legalman. If everything goes as planned, he will be headed to school for a few months in Oct, and then we will be at our new duty station by Jan. I can't wait for the change, we have been in Jacksonville for 3 years and I am ready to move somewhere else (hopefully back to WA).
