Giggles, Grins, and Forceps

I know, I know, shame on me for letting my son play with forceps...
I was helping Jake get his ingrown toenail out
and Becks thought it was hilarious to 'pinch' people with them.
He was only pretending, because I had to teach him after
he got dad's leg that it hurts, and to only do it for pretend.
He was having such a ball though, so I grabbed the cam and got some way cute shots.

Cupcake fun!

Our nephew just recently turned 4, and had a birthday party @ Grandma & Grandpa's house.
He had an awesome Spider Man themed party, with a really cool and oh-so-colorful
cupcake-cake. It was way neat! Beckham really enjoyed the cupcakes, as you can see...
I think he may have eaten the frosting from a total of three or so that day, it's a wonder
he wasn't puking his guts out later on in the evening.

Beckham loves Cantaloupe. Loves it.
I knew the second he started eating his first piece that I was going to need my camera:

Oh, and I must add, he went through 4, yes FOUR, wedges of cantaloupe!
I couldn't believe it!

We're in...

... the Navy!

DH just got home from MEPS and is an official member of the United States Navy!
I started a new blog today, too:


We're so excited for this new, life-changing opportunity!
He's going in as a Culinary Specialist, which sounds so very exciting.
His ship date is December 16th, 2008 (if he wants to, he may be able to head out before that).
I'll have to post a pic later of his awesome picture that's on his military ID, it's so *cute*!

***Finally remembered to add a pic of his temp ID card***


Well... I am hoping that after today, when DH gets home,
I'll officially be a NAVY WIFE! He's @ MEPS right now,
getting all his physical stuff done. Yay!

I can't wait
to start blogging
I have a new blog, dedicated specifically to our upcoming Naval lifestyle:
as we adjust to our new life as a military family.

I must admit, I'm scared to death, but at the same time,
I am so utterly excited! I cannot wait to see what this new
life-changing experience has in store for us.

♥ Sydney
