So I really need to finish babyproofing the house. We've done the preliminaries so far. Outlets and cabnits we don't want him in. His newest obsession is the warming drawer of the oven. Usually he just slides it open and closed but this time he decided to get in!
So as soon as we get back from the beach , it's off to BRU to get appliance babyproofers and drawer latches.

We went to the beach for the 4th of July weekend to visit Sarah as she is recovering from surgery. We had a great time. I drove down Thursday night after work with Bobby and Jacob flew down after work on Friday. Friday, Sarah, Larry, Bobby and I all headed down to the beach. It was hot and there were a lot of waves so there wasn't much water time which meant that we didn't stay that long. Larry and I went and picked up some swordfish steaks while Bobby napped and then Larry went and picked up Jacob from the airport. We grilled out and after we ate (and B went to bed) we hung out and listened to a lot of Phish. Larry must have every live show.
The next day, we got up , had breakfast, and napped most of the day. Finally, around 3:00, we rallied it togeher and went back to the beach. We went to the bay side this time which has less waves and we were able to get B in the water with out too much fuss. He throughly enjoyed eating the sand.
On our way home we stopped at Joe Pattie's and picked up 4 lobsters for dinner. Bobby made friends with them on the kitchen floor before we put him in bed. After dinner, we played Apples to Apples, where I spanked everyone. Finally, I played that game well. I usually do terribly.
We headed home around 10 the next day and it took us a solid 7 hours to get home due to repeated stops for Bobby.
It was a great weekend, relaxing and full of good food and laughter with great friends.

So here I am entering the "blogosphere".

Hello. Welcome to my blog. I guess I should start out by telling a little about myself and why I am here.
My name is Dana. I'm 29 and live in Atlanta. I have lived here my entire life, was born and raised in the same house in Marietta primarily by my dad. My parents were divorced when I was around 5 years old and I honestly do not remember them ever being married. I am the baby of my family, with an older sister and an older brother.
I am married to Jacob. He is the love of my life, my best friend, my soul mate if you will.
We recently celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary and will be celebrating 5 years together in a few short weeks.
We have a beautiful, darling baby boy, Bobby who is almost 8 months and is the light of my life. I never thought I could love someone else so completely as I do him. I work full time and desperately wish to become a stay at home mom so that I can watch my little boy grow up. However, for the time being, he is being lovingly cared for by my mom and my stepmom throughout the work week. Jacob and I are are so very thankful that we have them to help us raise Bobby. We have a happy, busy life. A beautiful home, good jobs and two very sweet but annoying kitty cats.

So the reason that I am here is because I've been thinking for the past two weeks or so that I would like to get out all the things that run through my head. So much in my life changes so quickly that I feel as if I need to get it down, these moments, little things , good and bad, funny or tragic so that I can look back and remember this wonderful time in my life. So here I am and I apologize in advance for randomness.
