It's been awhile!!

So it's been awhile since my last post. I really need to keep up with this. If not for my adoring readers, but for me.... later on down the road when Nathan is driving me crazy, and I can go back and read about how sweet he was :)

So he is growing like a weed these days. Strangers think he is at least 2 1/2 or 3! He isn't even 2 yet! He is counting very well these days also! He can count up to 13 and count to 10 in Spanish! He really likes to count down with the microwave and make the beeping sound at the end!

He has known his colors since he was around 13 months old, but here lately everything is PINK! Needless to say, we have been hitting the "colors" book pretty hard!

Back in April we took him to chuck e. cheese for the first time to a birthday party. I thought he would be a little reserved since there was so much noise and so many people. But as soon as we found our group, he was wanting down and trying to take tokens out of peoples cups! He had a blast, and didn't want to leave! He also recently went to his 2nd baseball ( 1st one since he has turned 1) and he had a blast! We had box seats so he was able to run around in the A/C and play with other kids.

I hate to admit this, but he still eats baby food! I try every day to offer him other things, but if he is not familiar with it, it is not going in his mouth! There are a few things we can get him to eat, but no enough to fill him up each day. But at least he is getting healthy food instead of junk all the time.

He is still OBSESSED!!!! with Max and Ruby!!! I really want to find everything to be able to have his 2nd birthday be Max and Ruby themed.

One major accomplishment we have recently done was to get him to wear hats!!! Before you would be lucky to get a hat on him for more than 5 seconds. But one night I put a hat on him and stood him in front of the mirror and that was all it took! So then I got his sunglasses ( again, he wasn't a fan) and put them on him in front of the mirror, and ta-da, he loved them!

He loves playing outside. He loves to splash in puddles of water. I'm sure our water bill is going to be outrageous this summer!

Well I'll do another update soon with pictures.

Do you take checks?

Today has been one of those days, one of those FANTASTIC days!!!

Nathan and I got up, made him a pancake and gave him some juice. We played, we built things, we had fun. Then Grandma showed up and I got ready and made a listed and headed to the store, BY MY SELF!! As soon as I dug for my shopping list I realized I didn't have my wallet! Luckily I had checks. Thank goodness I didn't need my driver's license!!

So I made it home and got Nathan some milk ready and he went to bed with out a fight! I wanted to get the vacuum cleaner fixed ( broken belt for a few days is not good) When I first tried to put the belt ( what seems 2 sizes too small) on I was sure I had bought the wrong size. After using a little muscle :) ta-dah! Now Nathan is napping and I'm dying to vacuum, haha!

I think what makes today a little better is knowing that Kyle is off work tomorrow. Since he got screwed in not getting a weekend off he is getting to take a day off this week and a day off next week! I'm kind of excited!!!!!

Well that's it friends, and for now I shall leave you with this...

Nathan Update:

-Still cute as ever!
-Counting to 4 in Spanish!!!
-Can count to 15 in English
-Knows his ABC's and can sing them ( only leaving out a few)
-LOVES money!!! It's so cute to hear him say "Coins" or "Quarter"
-Loves dancing
-When he plays with certain toys he likes to have music on. He has a toy that plays music so he will get it, turn it on and as soon as the music stops, he will stop what he is doing and get it going again. Too Cute!!!!
-Recently had his first trip to Chuck E. Cheese! And oh my word, he LOVED!!!! IT! ( The next day I showed him a picture of him and Mr.Cheese and he said "Chuck Cheese" again, too cute!
-Loves running and playing outside. Current favorite things to play with outside are :Rocks, "helicopter" things that are falling from our tree right now, and chalk!

That's pretty much it for now. He is talking so much and really starting to form sentences. Oh and he has mastered the iphone!, haha

Storytime Live!!!!

Yes, That's right friends, Storytime Live is coming to our area!!! And guess who's going? WE ARE!!! As crazy as it is, Nathan loves Dora and Boots ( not as much as Max and Ruby, I wish they were in the lineup ): )

Tonight when I was ordering the tickets, He was sitting next to me and saw the ad, and OMG he was excited!!! He started whispering "Dora", " Boots" over and over again. I think he will love it!!! I planned our seats( as much as I could) pretty well I think. We will be sitting in the balcony on the side. I don't want to be down on the main floor with all the crazy, germ infested kids ( no offence) I am really excited, and probably have no idea what we are getting ourselves into by doing this when Nathan is only 18 months old, but it will be adventure, and I'm ready for it!

Check back in late March to see if we make it out of there still sane,ha!

Why must you fight it?!

So the boy has been fighting naps lately. Sometimes he will give in around 2 or 3, but I just think that is too late for a nap. Usually by 5:00 pm his little eyes are so droopy, and we are looking for anything that has just a little bit of sugar in it, to keep him going just a bit longer. I don't want him going to sleep any earlier than 8 or so, otherwise we will be waking up at 6:00am and I DO NOT want to wake up that early!!! I think this teething thing is getting hard on him. I believe he is cutting up to 6 teeth right now, and they are the big ones in the back. I feel so bad for him. He constantly has his hands crammed in his mouth, just chewing away on his little chubby hands. And since it's been rather cold here lately, his hands feel like little ice blocks :( I give him teething tablets and Tylenol at night sometimes, but I don't want him drugged up all day. I can't wait for this process to be over with, and I'm sure he can't wait either.

Just a little update

Well it looks like our chance of moving to Owasso isn't going to happen. The superintendent didn't get the job, like we were hoping for. Therefore that means no job opening :( I was really looking forward to moving. I had been looking at houses, trying to figure out where things were... I was really excited. This was a dream job for Kyle. He deserves to be a superintendent somewhere. And I want that "somewhere" to be close. I know this is his year, something good will open up and he's going to move on up the ladder!! Until then, I'll keep praying for his chance.

On another note, We just had the Snow Storm of 2010!!! Thank goodness it was a snow storm and not an ice storm!!! Last year we had the worst ice storm ever!!! I never want to go through anything like that ever again!!!!!! (maybe later I'll edit this and add some pictures) We were so worried about this storm, I called a tree service and had them come out and cut back 3 very scary trees in our front yard! I'm glad we didn't have to hear any branches snapping or trees falling over this year! I have never been so stressed in my whole life while waiting for this storm to get here. But that is a whole other post, ha!

Anyway... well that's what has been going on in the Soller household.

Peace out :)

Why am I even writing this....

So I know I haven't posted in awhile, but seriously...who am I kidding, no one reads this anyway.

But tonight, I shall write.

My husband recently heard about a job possibly opening up. The course ( golf course) isn't even finished yet, which makes it even better. Getting to be there for the construction is a big thing. Any who, the thing about it is, is that it is in Owasso,OK!!! I never pictured my self living in OKLAHOMA!!! But for some reason, I am super excited about this. It would be an answered prayer.

I told him that he needs to have everything in an envelope, stamped and ready to be put in the mail as soon as he hears something about it.You see, moving up in the golf course industry is kind of hard to do. He has been at the same level for 6 years now!!! And he has had at least 3 bosses already. I think it is time for him to get to step up a notch, and obviously it isn't going to happen at his current place of employment :(

He has a friend at said golf course, so we are hoping that this friend could pull some strings for him. Ohhhhh I would love for him to be a superintendent at this golf course. This is what he has been working hard for , for so long. It would make the long summer hours worth it for sure!

Anyway, Well that is what has been going on. Positive thoughts and prayers are much appreciated!!
