I was raised on the Gulf of Mexico in Pensacola, Florida. My twin sister, Michelle, and I were born on July 21, 1986, and we partook in many of the same activities growing up and shared many of the same friends. Around the age of 4, our mother enrolled Michelle and me in ballet classes at the dance studio around the corner from our house; I fell in love with dancing there, and as I grew older I added jazz and tap to my weekly routine. As I got older I learned to love writing, and English became my favorite subject. After graduation, I attended Pensacola Junior College and obtained my Associates degree in General Studies; I still currently attend the University of West Florida, which is where I transferred in order to receive my Bachelor’s degree, by taking online courses every semester. I met my husband, Blake, when he was stationed in Pensacola in the summer of 2007, and I moved to Jacksonville, North Carolina after he received his orders to be stationed there in the fall; this is why I attend college courses online, now. We married on March 9, 2009, and he deployed to Africa two months after. He returned in January of this year (2010), and in May we celebrated our one-year anniversary by spending the weekend in New York City; we enjoyed our first Broadway musical that weekend. We found out that I was one month pregnant in July, and we are very excited to become first-time parents. Our baby is due on March 18, 2011, and we couldn’t be more excited, although we still aren’t far enough along to find out the sex of our baby. I am excited to become a mom and look forward to sharing experiences with you all!

I can’t believe I’m writing this post, but it’s time for me to say good-bye to TummyTime. It’s weird that this is going to be my last post because Levi is only 9 months old and I have so much more to share with everyone and so so so so …

I’m not sure if it’s all in my head or if it’s because I’ve been sick and extra moody, but I feel like Levi could care less if his mommy was around him anymore. He never reaches for me anymore now that I’ve finished school and Blake is done with …

I think that Levi truly enjoyed his very first Christmas EVER! He received so many toys that I don’t know what to do with them all! I do know that transporting them back home will be hard to do because of all the gifts we’re taking back with us.

Levi will be experiencing his first Christmas this year and we’re all so excited to watch him try and open presents. He won’t know what he’s doing probably and he’ll more than likely be more excited about eating wrapping paper …

We’ve just arrived at the new apartment in our new location and let me tell you that the amount of boxes consuming the living room from when Blake was here moving stuff in is overwhelming! I understand that he didn’t have anyone here to help him unpack or clean the …
