JD's a Miami Dolphin

Pretty NUTS! Saturday and Sunday were crazy to say the least.... lots of phone calls from NFL scouts and linebacker coaches, JD's agent, and finally excited family and friends:] JD was drafted the 5th pick of the 7th round... so #214 of the 256 drafted....to go play Linebacker for the Miami Dolphins! We are so excited and kinda scared... well I am at least... all at the same time! He leaves this Thursday for the first mini-camp and will be back Sunday. The OTA's are sometime in the middle of May for a couple weeks and then Training camp starts towards the end of July. We won't move out there til August once all the camps are over and it's more set in stone that we'll be staying there. Until then, we'll just be back and forth all summer! As for Vet School, he'll get a deferment for a year and then if he keeps playing longer than that, he'll just have to reapply once he's done if he still wants to go to vet school afterwards. I am so proud of JD and all his hard work!! No one is more deserving of this opportunity! We are surely in for an adventure!JD was still on the phone with the GM so he was trying to hear but we were all so excited!!

We're so proud of you Sweetie!

One Month & Lots of Updates

I can't believe Jonnie is over a month old already! She is growing up so fast... it is so much fun but actually really quite sad for me. It seems like she changes and is doing new things every single day! A lot has been going on lately and I am going to jam it all into THIS post since I don't know when I'll get around to doing another one! I couldn't sleep this morning so I woke up at 6 and decided to get some things done before Jonnie woke up and wanted to eat again:) Updating our blog has been on my to-do list... just kind of towards the bottom so it gets shoved aside! ANYWAYS.... On with the updates:

**Jonnie is now ONE MONTH and two days and growing by the minute.hahaha... I love it when she yawns.. it cracks me up the faces she pulls already.
Speaking of faces.... I can't get enough of this one! haha... She had just woken up.. probably after a night full of one or two hour increments of sleep... we gotta work on that!

**Yesterday was the first time she smiled while she was awake.. and she did it when JD was playing with her. I think she has a crush:]They have the cutest little relationship already:]

**Our insurance is trying to make us pay for all the NICU bills... what the heck was the $5000 copay and then they covered 100% after that bull crap all about then?! UGH.. I hate insurance. Hopefully we can get this figured out soon.

**Easter was great! We spent it at my parents' house and had some fun Easter egg hunts... Jonnie had a cute little Easter dress and looked adorable!She was getting sick of pictures already!

**JD got a call and letter from Washington State telling him he's been ACCEPTED! So the day after we sent off our $500 NON-refundable check to Oklahoma State to hold his spot... we are now shifting gears and heading to Washington State if the football thing doesn't work out.

**THREE more days til the draft... and also when JD will get the big call from a team if they want him as a Free Agent. The whole process is nuts... but so far he's been talking to Indianapolis, Miami, Dallas, and Kansas City. So we'll see what happens!

**ONE final stands between me and graduation! WOO! I think I'm gonna take it on Monday.

**We got a storage unit for the summer.. thanks Brye and Michelle for finding it!... and started moving our stuff in yesterday. No matter if we end up doing the football thing or Vet School, we're doing the storage unit thing til we find a place in August wherever we end up... TALK ABOUT FLYING BY THE SEAT OF YOUR PANTS!

**Weber had their football banquet last Thursday and JD got Defensive MVP for the 2nd year in a row... WOO go babe! (I'm still trying to figure out how to balance Wife and Mom... clearly I stink at the wife part lately cause I didn't get ANY pictures of him at the banquet. Cosy did though so I will need to steal those from her.)

**I LOVE being a Mom and just adore Jonnie. I'm sure she didn't know what she was getting herself into when she became part of our family.. but boy is it an adventure!What I do 99% of the time I'm with her...

I think that touches on just about everything. We are doing great and just trying to get by each day. We love the hot weather and taking walks whenever we can! I can't wait til JD is done with this semester!! video

3 Weeks:]

I know I have been a MAJOR slacker with the blogging lately but I have been wiped OUT! Of course Jonnie sleeps a ton these days, but lately I have been taking full advantage of her naps and sleeping right along with her. I'm definitely still getting used to the whole night time thing. She just doesn't sleep nearly as well when she's not being held so it has been kinda hard. We're working on it though and she's getting better! We are learning new things every day and having a heck of a time while doing so. Jonnie is such a little ball of fire and I love her so so much! We had her 2 week appt last Monday and she looks great.... she was weighing 9 pounds 1 ounce so all her eating is paying off. I was surprised she was gaining any with the heavy loads she drops in her pants a million times a day:] She's definitely MASTERED eating AND pooping. It's been lovely.
Helping Daddy with homework late at night while I was getting some sleep:] JD is the best.
She SOMETIMES likes her binky, and it is sure nice when she does!
One of my favorites so far... ahh I can't get enough of this girl!
