Fall 2015 update

So it's been almost a year since my last post. Things sure have changed in that year. I had planned on going back to Six Flags St. Louis for the 2015 season, then got a full time job offer from a local community college, so I've been there since February. We found out the first week of my new job that I was pregnant with our second child, a boy.
Baby Tyler's official due date is October 4, but we're hoping a little sooner. Ayla is excited that we're having a boy, because "Grandpa needs a grandson". Tyler will be the only one on Sean's side, and the second on my side. We moved into a bigger apartment back in May, to prepare for the coming baby. I'm currently on leave from work until at least six weeks after Tyler is born, another reason we want him to arrive a little sooner. The sooner he's here, the less unpaid leave I'll have to take, since I'm not eligible for FMLA yet.

Ayla's gone fishing with Sean a few times this year, and has caught a few fish.
This was her first catch back in June.
She's going fishing with Sean again today, and I get to go see a movie with Mom and Jessa later. 


Ayla started kindergarten this year, it's hard to believe she's going to be 6 in just a few more months. She likes school and her teacher, and is disappointed that school isn't everyday, and that they usually have two "home days" a week. Today's a holiday, so she had three home days this weekend, and she's already asking about going to school again. 
She's lost two of her bottom teeth, and the replacements are coming in already. She's not too thrilled about going to the dentist for a check-up, but that won't be anything after we have her allergies tested next week. A check-up at the dentist will be a walk in the park after that. 
She's been going to Taekwondo with Sean once a week, which she likes for the most part, when she's not tired, as she gets to see Uncle Jason and Master 'Nard....since she still can't say Barnard. 

Not a whole lot else going on, aside from preparing and waiting for Baby Tyler to arrive, and getting Ayla to and from school, since we don't have her riding the school bus currently. 
Hopefully Tyler will be here within the next 2-3 weeks. 
Can't wait to meet our newest bug.
