What we've been waiting for!

Our seven year anniversary was on the tenth. We didn't do anything because we wanted to wait to celebrate until after the match. So the week was spent waiting for this week to come. I know I shouldn't spend so much time looking to the future and focus on the present,  but I have been waiting for us to match for YEARS.

Monday we found out that we DID match and it was so nice to know that we did it and that Johnny would have a job in the summer being a REAL doctor! We are so proud of him and all the hard work he has done to make his dream come true! It was also St. Patty's Day and we celebrated with Corned Beef and Cabbage. 
The rest of the week was long and hard for two reasons: one because I had to wait until Friday to find out where we are going to spend the next three years, second because Johnny had the night shift all week. It was hard to have him gone for so long. On top of his 12 hour shift he had to stay for morning report and rounds which means he really had a 16 hour shift everyday. Hard on him and us. The kids seemed to sleep horribly all week so none of us were getting any rest. 

Well the long awaited Friday came and we found out we are headed to Des Moines, Iowa! It was not what I was expecting, but we are so excited! I really didn't care where we went as long as we got in some where. It will be so nice to feel settled and have friends and feel a part of a community.

Johnny says the program is good and the hospital is very nice as well as the people he will be working with.

Saturday after Johnny got home from his last night shift he took a little nap and then we headed out to celebrate! We went out to dinner at Longhorn Stake House. It was super tasty and we all were stuffed so we decided to take a walk around the mall. We also went to get our groceries for the week. By the time we got home we were all pooped. It was a week of ups and downs and now its time to get busy with the move, finding a house, and Johnny's LAST WEEK as a med student!

Extra Kiddos

Johnny didn't go to school on Monday because a big storm was supposed to snow us in again, but it ended up not snowing much. We just stayed at home but we did give Quentin a little haircut. We tried just trimming around his ears, but it looked weird so we ended up buzzing it. It was a little sad at first, but I decided I like it how it is his big brown eyes stand out even more and who knew there was a little blonde boy under all that hair. 

We didn't do anything out of the ordinary until Friday night. I babysat for a couple in our ward so they could go out to eat and then go to the temple. So I had six kids to take care of including mine. I was a little nervous especially since one was only 2 months old. 

But the kids had so much fun and it was so much easier than I thought it would be. Daphne was so happy to have someone to play with. I had a fun time cuddling with this little cutie. I thought Quen would be totally jealous, but he was fine with it. 

Johnny had to work on Saturday so it was another normal weekday basically. I don't like not getting a full weekend with him, but sometimes you gatta do what you gatta do.

What we do.

I missed updating you all last week, but that's okay because we really didn't do anything. Just our normal daily routine. We didn't do anything this week either. I guess we went to the doctor on Monday, but that was it. 

Quentin turned 6 months. I can't believe it. Time goes by fast when you are a mom of two. Its funny to think he was only 2 weeks old when we moved to Maryland. He is still as needy as ever and the thing he needs is me. I can't get anything done because I always have to hold him. I love my mamas boy. We have started feeding him baby food and he doesn't seem to enjoy it very much. He always makes a face when I put the food in his mouth like its gross. He is so happy and always has a big grin on his face. I think he may be scooting around pretty soon. He loves balls and mirrors. He has started making dinosaur squeals when he talks and is pretty loud. You can tell he always wants to be playing with his sister and that he loves her. I can't wait until they can play with each other. We love them both to pieces!
