The New Year

Well, here it is 2009, and I dont have a whole lot of plans just yet. I do plan on however losing 30 pounds. I just want to look like I did before I had the baby. Nothing major, just a better self esteem. I have started by making one big change, I no longer drink sodas although I could use some serious caffine right about now.
Family life is going great. I am back in school, Robert has two teeth, and Wes couldn't be happier.
Robert is getting so big, every day seems to bring new changes. I can't believe that in about 4 months I will be planning his first birthday. He has already said his first word, and believe it or not, I won, he says "momma". And its "momma" all day long. Oh my gosh is he busy too. Constantly on the move. If he is on the floor he is into everything. He crawls, backwards... he hasnt quite learned how to push himself forward yet. But he is getting there. If he gets stuck against something, he pushes off of it and turns himself so that he can move again. I have to keep a major eye on him now. If not everything will end up in his mouth. Having a baby is a busy job, but I wouldn't change it for the world.
Im doing well, like I said Im back in school. I am about to transfer from a tech college to a university. Im nervous about it, its going to be a lot more work. But in the end its going to be well worth it. I am however changing my major. I want to be a regular ed teacher. I am burnt out on special ed. Even though my job is rewarding, after doing it for so long, my nerves just can't take it anymore. Plus the politics of it and even more stressful. Work is going really well though. I have a differnt state of mind when Im there. Im there for the kids and nothing else. I put my other feeling aside and do my job. Speically since it's so hard to find another one. I know Im safe there and I dont want to jeopardize that.
Wes is doing GREAT! He is in his last week of training and he is so excited. Starting next week he will be on his own doing his own thing. I see such a spark in his with the job. He doesn't get up dreading his day anymore like he did with his old job. He comes home with a million and one stories and even though some days are not a busy as the others, he is still loving it. Im so proud of him too. He has pursued his dreams and everyday they are coming true.
