I don't do well with change and I often have to push myself to move past my comfort zone. My last job had become very comfortable, predictable, and easy. I wasn't growing, I wasn't challenging myself professionally. It's time to move beyond the big fish in the little pond scenario that I've been living in. I'm ready for the big ocean, the deep seas. I'm ready to be more. So, here I go: the next chapter unfolding and a whole new adventure waiting for me. I am excited to see where my life as a nurse will take me next.
And now, an update via photos and a few words, too...
River has fallen in love with our horse sized lab, Ozzy. He wants to pet Ozzy, climb on top of Ozzy, lick Ozzy, and annoy this poor animal to death. Despite his ferocious size, our sweet dog patiently allows our baby to love on him to no end. These two will be best buddies later, I am sure of it.
Brees is currently obsessed with pirates, superheros, and spaceships, in no particular order. Her imagination is UNBELIEVABLE right now and I'm not even sure she is ever completely living in reality these days. She is constantly rearranging furniture to create elaborate scenes, is always dressed in some costume or another, and will only answer you if you speak to her in character. She keeps us laughing, that's for sure.
Our two photogenic children AKA the two children who will actually look at the camera and smile. AHEM, Brees... Belle loves River and River loves Belle, that's really all there is to it.
We set River down in the grass the other night for a "baby's first time sitting in the grass" photo op. This fearless little guy took off at the speed of light, crawling and exploring and sampling as many blades of grass and leaves as he could stuff into his mouth before we could grab him. He got his daily serving of greens that day, shall we say.
Hey kids, can we please get just one picture all together for Mother's Day? Just real quick? Just, okay, can we please look at the camera? In the general direction of the camera? No? Okay then...
