I am so excited that Justice is no longer using his bottle. I took it away yesterday and then tonight he never even asked for it. I am so excited that he is now really turning into a big boy. I am now going to work on taking away the Binky. I am sad though he is no longer a baby.
This is the time in my life that I cherish because he will not need me as much anymore.
Today we had Damian come and play and Justice was so excited to have here with him. It was so nice. I am going to start working on him getting him into his big boy bed.

Saturday I had my first cookie lee party at my house. It went wonderful. Justice got to go and spend sometime with daddy. They went to the guy shops and had a lot of fun, it was nice to enjoy my party and not have to chase a little one around the whole time. They got home just as my party was ending. Justice and I have both been sick with a cold and neither of us are feeling up to par but that means that I have to work and take care of myself and him when we are not feeling well. Today he seems to be doing better though which makes me happy.
Sunday we did our usually other than church since neither of us still were not feeling well. We made our rounds in bellingham then went to nana's so that I could put him down for his nap and I could get some work done then we came home and waited for daddy to get home from hunting. It was good day other than being sick.
Today has taken me a long time to get motivated to anything, but I am up and ready to go now. Once justice wakes up we have to go to make an avon delivery, the bank, to a customers house then home. Then tonight I have to go to tukwilla to the cookie lee showroom it should be fun other than driving there and back. Not looking forward to that, Justice will stay home with daddy since I am leaving close to his bed time.
I decided that I needed to make some more money for our family and avon is not cutting it right now, I do not want to have to work where I would not have my son with me, so I thought I would try cookie Lee. My first party went really well and I got a few parties scheduled from that so hopefully this will help out a lot.

Today damian came down to play. It was fun and I wished I lived closer so these two can do this more often. We played in the house, outside and made some avon deliveries. Another normal day just with another kid.

Last past couple of days have been interesting. Justice decided the other day that he was going to be mean to me and would scratch and try to rip off my face and every type of discipline that I tried that day he would just get madder and do it again. That was a day that I just wanted to get away, but being a stay at home mom with no family right where I live that was not possible so I dealt with it and just waited for bed time to come. The next day he was totally different he woke up and was a loving boy all day giving me kisses with out trying to bite me and did not get mean all day. I loved every moment since he was the sweetest little boy in the world. He is sweet most of the time but he has his moments.
Yesterday Justice and I went and ran some errands and went to fred meyers, like always the puppy came with us. When I got back to my truck it was covered with blood. It look like something had been killed in there. I looked at the puppy and his foot was bleeding. He had gotten his toe nail caught on something and tore it out of his foot. Not sure how is did it, but it sure made a mess. We got home and got the puppy locked up so he would stay off of his foot. Then me and Justice went out and cleaned my truck and tried to get the blood out. Not an easy job.
Today we have just layed around so far and cuddled it has been nice. Not sure what we are going to do today, but probely not that much.

Justice has not been feeling well for the last couple of days running fevers of 103.2 and 101 just depending if he is on the Tylenol or not. He for some reason knows when I am going to bed and decides that is when he is going to get up. We have slept on the couch together for the last few nights which means I do not sleep, so I have gotten to cuddle with him all night which I cherish because I know that this is not something that I am going to be able to do with him forever. I am tired though because no sleep catches up with you. I am hoping that he starts to feel better and will sleep through the night tonight so that I can get some sleep too. Right now he is acting normal and is not running a fever. Lets hope for the best and that it stays this way.
We were so lucky last night, I live right next to the skagit county river and luckily it was not one of the ones that flooded. I am sorry for the ones that did get hit but thankful that our river was not one of the bad ones because if it was, I am sure that our house would be hit. In 2003 the river flooded here but not get to my house and I hope that is the case every time but you never know living in a flood plain.
Things are slowly starting to get normal around my house other than the no sleep.
My new years resolutions this year are simple and things that I know I can do.
1. make more money
2. spend more time with my husband
3. get justice potty trained and in his big boy bed
4. break the bottle
5. have another baby
6. organize my house and paint
other than that I am not sure what else I have.
Justice is getting more active and independent everyday. He likes to do things for him self and by himself a lot which is fine because he is growing into a wonderfully loving and caring little man, I miss doing things for him but I know that he needs to do them on his own sometimes since that shows him how to be independent and how to be a good little man. Life right now is wonderful and I would not change a thing about my life.

So today we got back in our normal daily schedule for the most part. We got up and did our thing then off to make some Avon deliveries and to do errands. We hit up the grocery store, took Aaron a coffee and things like that. Other than that we made dinner and just did things that needed to be done that have not gotten done. Justice is growing up so fast and I can believe that he is almost two already. I am sad to see my little man growing up so fast. I sometimes that he was still my little baby but those days are long gone and I am happy about it and sad all at one time.
There are days when I wish that I had a job outside of the home to just get away but I would not trade my life for anything and would not give up the chance to be home with my little man for any amount of money in the world. I had a child because I wanted to raise him and that is what I am going to do and no one else. I might be a little over protective and that is alright with me. Justice has only been babysat a few times and I really do not like doing that. He has not slept at anyone's house and I am not for seeing that in the near future. I don't know I am not sure how I would do not having him home in his own bed, I sure that he would do alright, but I am not ready for that maybe sometime in life that will happen. I have not let many people watch him, but I have no problems watching someone else's child. That seems natural to me but letting him go somewhere does not seem right. I am different I know.
I am really looking forward to this year with my family and watching Justice grow up into a little man and the perfect little boy that he is.

Life has been pretty chaotic with everything going on it the last few weeks. New year's eve we stayed home and had some friends over and watched a movie and ate snacks it was nice to be in the comfort of our own home until midnight when the fireworks started going off, which woke up Justice and he stayed awake the rest of the night on the couch with me. It was nice to cuddle with him, but it would have been nicer to sleep.
I got a lot of money for Christmas which was nice since I needed some new clothes and some money to do some thing for my self. I got my nails and toes done. My bangs cut then got them colored. I got my eye brows done and bought a bunch of needed clothes. I also got some small things for Justice but that is to be expected when I get money that I spend it on him. Aaron now on the other hand has not spend any of his money but that is the way things go around here.
We have also decided to try for one more baby and then we are done. I would like for Justice to have someone to grow up with and be close to.
I am glad that the year is over and hopefully 2009 will be better and I will make more money with avon then I did in 2008
