Isn't it amazing how ONE YEAR makes a world of difference!!!

I have been Dirk and Millie's Nanny for One Year, and one have a few weeks left!

Here's the difference one year makes:

Dirk graduated Preschool and is now loving Kindergarten everyday!!

Dirk is a big kid and loves showers more than Baths!

He learned how to ride without training wheels :)

He can write his whole Alphabet {upper & lower}, and is reading.

He is a super boy, I love our conversations!!

I love his hugs, and he hugs Montgomery.

He is a cuddlier, and the most thoughtful boy I know.

Dirk loves oranges and popsicles

He loves Juice and not a big fan of H2O


Millie went from a highchair, to booster seat, to chair

Millie grew hair :)

She learned to talk, and become a DRAMA Queen

She loves to sing {more like humm} Her Favorite is EIEIO

She loves cowboy boots

She can pick up her own toys

Millie loves her BABY {and she has like 20 of them}

He favorite word is "DUKA" which in English is MILK CUP

I have had a great year with Dirk and Millie, I will miss seeing them everyday, but ready to be there AUNTIE again :) With Special Visits and Spoiling them with Gifts!!! I'm kind of teary as I write this, I love these kids, like there my own :) They are great kids!!!

WOW!!! one year, where did time go???

Jan 8~9

I had Sunday, January 8Th off of Work, so I headed to Cadillac to meet Paislee, the daughter of my friends Ryan and Brandi. Paislee was born on Christmas Eve. Paislee is so tiny, born at 7 lbs, 5 oz. she is smaller than Millie's baby dolls. It was fun to hold her and watch her sleep. Makes me kind of nervous awaiting the arrival of Montgomery. The hospital actually lets you take this little thing out of the hospital. They don't come with instructions. Oh dear!!! I know I'm worried for no reason, but she is so tiny and beautiful

Then I headed to LRCR, CWM3 and I had hotel reservations. We had a beautiful 1st floor, courtyard room, I love having a door to the courtyard, a little nicer in the summer, but Sunday was a beautiful sunny day! It was so nice to let loose and relax. We went swimming, went to China Buffet for Dinner, played a little, and relaxed in our room. We had to do an early morning Breakfast at the Willows, because I had to leave by 93oAM to be on time for work. It was a peaceful day, spent with people I love and care for.

99 days left...

It is hard to believe that I only have 99 days left of this pregnancy, it has gone so fast. I still feel like it was yesterday that I read a positive test.

Did you know that a full pregnancy is 280 days and I found out on day 36, which meant when I found out I had 244 days left and now I'm down to 99 :)

On Sept 6Th I entered my 2ND trimester, and thought my morning sickness would get better, but boy was I wrong :( It got worse.
November 22ND, We found out we were having a boy and decided to name him Montgomery Gene Miller. Gene is after my dad, who passed away in 1986.

My 24Th Week I celebrated Christmas and Montgomery got spoiled, and my 25Th week I rang in the new year!!!

As I get ready to enter my 26Th week, tomorrow, and my 3rd and last trimester on January 19Th. I have a lot of big events on my calendar, My little cousin is getting married on January 13Th, My last day of work is the 27Th, and moving on February 1st.

Time has gone by fast, and I hope that the next 99 days go smooth and fast. I can't wait to hold Montgomery in my arms and kiss his sweet cheeks.
