the last few months

Wow again a long break I need to set an alarm to go off every week to remind me to do one of these things. You would think that with the amount of time I spend on the computer that I would be able to write something. Anyway... Here is what is up.
Daniel and I have moved home to Texas to live with my mom for a few months while Alex is training for a new job in the Marines I initially moved home to help my sister with the kids and allow Alex to fix up the house to rent out (we would be moving in a few months anyway) allow Alex to focus on school, and apply for a new job in the Marines (has to have a job to reenlist) and lastly for me to make more money (not super important but fell into the "pros" column). The house has now been rented, Alex has reenlisted and is doing really well in school. He is a junior now and continues to bring his GPA up. My sister no longer needs me to watch the kids for now at least, and I am making more money which does not hurt. Alex is currently living with a very kind and generous couple from our church who allows him to rent a room in their home. This kept us from paying fees and deposits on an apartment for Alex to live in for only a few months. We are very grateful to them. All is well we miss each other alot, but try to talk every night and at least once a week on web cam. He will be leaving to Virginia for nine months of school. I will stay here in Texas during that period as well.
Daniel is running around like crazy. He is your typical little boy, climbs on everything, runs around screaming at the top of his lungs usually(he likes the sound of his voice) and getting into as much trouble as possible, and that is just while he sleeps. JK. It amazes me everyday when I didn't think I could love him anymore...He blows me a kiss and says I Wobe you... then I realize that I can and proceed to look for what he just took and tore up. He has started to really have an opinion on things and will shake and nod his head to posed questions, as well he has fine tuned his art of flirting with all persons of the female sex. 6mo. to 106yr. does not matter. Daniel suddenly turns into an angel with dimples when a girl walks by. Just last night we were walking the track by the hospital when a couple of ladies stroll by in the opposite direction. Daniel turns around and runs after the, yes runs after them, screaming might I add. They stop to carry on a conversation with a 16mo. old. as they go to leave he waves and blows them kisses, and then the kiss earlier does not feel so special. Just kidding I take all I can get.
I have just successfully cut his hair for the first time. he really need a haircut so I decided instead of paying someone 15 dollars I could do it my self and just to let you know I think I did a fine job. I will post pics later when I can figure out how to upload from my phone. Alright I think that is all for now. I promise pics are to come.
