Happy Father's Day!

Today Eden and I got to celebrate the love of our lives - her Daddy! We are blessed to have him in our lives as he's the one who takes care of us in the long run. He's always there to make sure we're safe, fed, and happy.

Eden and I started the day by waking up early to make Daddy's favorite muffins - honey bran muffins. We haven't found a store that carries the pre-packaged stuff, so we did the big kid thing and made them from scratch. I'd never done that before, so I was proud that they turned out yummy.

After breakfast and for the remainder of the day, Lane studied for his test that he has tomorrow. He has taken 2 tests and done some other physical stuff for grades in API and so far has a 97 average. It was a bummer to have to stay home all day to help him study, but we're willing to make those small sacrifices. Throughout the day when he would take study breaks he was able to spend time with us and we even had a chance to take some pictures! The one of Eden and Daddy doing tummy time together is my favorite so I'll be sure to share :)

Happy first Father's Day, Lane!!!!!!!!!!!

Milestones GALORE!

Our lives in the past 2 weeks have been filled with milestones for both Lane and Eden!

May 23: Lane got his promotion to 1st Lt
May 30: Eden was baptised at Dunwoody United Methodist Church in GA
June 3: Lane started API - the first part of flight school.
June 3: Eden rolled over for the first time...and she did it twice!

Wow, there have been so many BIG events in our lives that we have had lots of fun down here. Eden and I went to work early with Lane on Monday May 24 in order to be there for his promotion ceremony. He, along with 4 other Marines were promoted that morning.

Later that week we left for GA as a family. We arrived in GA on Thursday afternoon and were able to spend the long Memorial Day weekend with our families to celebrate Eden's baptism at our home church. It was a great weekend to catch up with family and have Eden baptised!

Just yesterday Lane was able to start API, which is the first portion of flight school that he will complete. While we are in Florida there are 3 portions of flight school that Lane will have to complete. Each school will become more and more specific to the aircraft that he will be assigned to fly. Also, yesterday, Eden rolled over for the first time! She rolled over twice from her belly to her back. Because she did it more than once I was able to get it on video for Lane to see! I was super excited and proud of her and I also got a little sad because it shows that she's growing up (something that I'm not quite ready for...I want her to be my little baby forever!)
