So since my test post seemed to work – I suppose I will write a real blog. I wonder if it'll transfer my pretty text as well. I have a lot that I'd love to use!
I suppose I'll get to the point of this post. This would be our introduction. Currently talking (or should I say typing) is the lady of the house – Allyssa. I will most likely be the only one in here updating as I am currently a stay at home wife (SAHW), soon to be a stay at home mommy (SAHM). I am currently pregnant with our first child – a little princess. We'll get back to her soon – after all she will be the highlight of this blog. J
So we've established that I'm currently a SAHW. I absolutely love it. I love being home every day to greet Will when he gets home from work. Not to crazy about the cleaning, but I do what I gotta do. J I am 21 years young, just turned 21 actually in August. I love children – absolutely love them. They are my passion. I worked at a in-home day care for 5 years. I have also interned in a Kindergarten class my senior year of high school, and I was a substitute preschool teachers aid out here in sunny San Diego for a few short months. I quit that job to become a nanny for 2 beautiful children. That job, sadly, only lasted a few short months as well. All of my jobs and my internship have been very rewarding. My hope & goal is to, one day, open an in-home day care so that I can stay home and raise my daughter and any future kids we may have, as well as bring in some extra money & work with kids again. We will see where life takes me, though. I am also very into photography – though I am not all that great. I enjoy getting out & taking photos. As well as capturing our lives on camera. I take lots and lots of pictures – so be prepared for that!
The man of the house is my lovely husband – Will. You'll also hear me refer to him as William, hubby, DH (dear husband), or his new name as daddy. He is also 21 – though will soon be turning 22 in February. My old man! :p Will is in the US Navy and works as an IT – He's a computer nerd. He is a great guy with a huge heart. He works hard – sometimes too hard. And does everything in his power to make the people around him happy. He is liked by many people. He is a big nerd – he loves to play his X-Box 360 and other random games on the computer. He also loves old cars!
Both Will and I are from a city near Palm Springs, California called La Quinta, CA. We were both raised out in the Coachella valley our whole lives. We attended La Quinta High School – which is where we met and fell in love. We were young, 16 & 17, both juniors in high school in 2005. But age really doesn't matter. Will left for the Navy just 40 short days after we graduated from high school. Within 8 months of Graduating HS we were married – February 10th, 2007. We're coming up on our 3rd anniversary. And like any young couple, even as a marriage couple, we have had our ups and downs. But we're working through it. We currently live in San Diego, where he got stationed in January of 2007. We're here at least until his contract ends July 2011 – which is coming up fast! We are very thankful to have gotten stationed so close (just 2 hours) to our families and home town.
We have two kitties – Azul & Bella. They're our babies & are both very spoiled. They are a ton of fun & keep me company when Will is gone.
As I mentioned above – we are expecting our 1st child. A baby girl, whom we have named Emmersyn Diana, will join us March 2010. My due date is March 14th. We are both quiet nervous – but also excited. I myself have wanted nothing more than to be a mother. And now my biggest dream is coming true – and I am going to experience parenthood with my best friend and the love of my life. I couldn't ask for anything better. She is already a very spoiled baby girl!! She is the 1st Grandbaby on my side of the family – and my mom was very excited to find out it's a girl. She is the 3rd Grandbaby for Will's mom, but the 1st Granddaughter. So those two things alone have her very much so spoiled. I am so thankful for our families though – They have helped so much. We couldn't give our daughter everything she needs on our own, unfortunately. But we have wonderful family who have helped a ton and she is already good to go – I haven't even had my baby shower yet!! Being due middle of March puts me at 29 weeks pregnant today! This pregnancy has flown by!
Unfortunately, Will has missed the whole pregnancy. We found out I was pregnant on July 10th
– and had it confirmed on July 13th. But July 31st Will was off on his 2nd deployment. What was supposed to be a 6 month deployment – bringing him home end of January – it has turned into an 8 month deployment and now he isn't due home until the end of March. So it'll be cutting it very close to our daughters birth!!!
I have so much more I can write. . . But I think that, for now, this is long enough. Tomorrow I will be back to post more about my pregnancy & our daughter.
Until next time-
