Family Pictures

Well, no news yet. I have been feeling a bit strange this week. I'm not sure if that means anything. According to the calculator I used a pregnancy test wouldn't even be positive until next week, so I can't test yet. Oh well, until then I thought I'd post some pictures of my cute nieces. Gianna is 1 year and 4 months old, and Haley is just about 1 month old. Of course, I'm hoping we have a boy to balance out the family a bit. :)

Not a One-Sided Website

The beauty of this website is that I have full access to it.  I can post what I need to say in order to counter the ridiculous things that sometimes come out of my husband's mouth.  What ridiculous things you ask?  Well, lets start with those names.  This is the first problem we are going to have with a baby.  I have names already picked out for a boy or a girl.  Darren doesn't have a clue what they are.  I'm not going to have a serious discussion with him about names until we know for sure what we are having.  If I mention it now he will make just make jokes and never agree to them.  Good news for him is both names have some kind of airplane/flying connection.  It was not intended, but he may actually like them once we finally talk about it.

I have been off my birth control pills for just over a week now.  I never considered it before, but these pills are just like any other medication.  Once you stop taking them there may be side effects.  For the past few days I have been feeling awful.  I've been tired, achy, and slightly nauseous.  I'm much better now, but at the time I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me.  I did a search online and it seems to be pretty common.  I guess when you have been taking a certain pill everyday for years your body just doesn't know how to react when its stopped.  One big concern I had was acne.  I used to have it really bad when I was a teenager and I even took Accutane in high school.  When I was on the pills I would always end up breaking out during that one week a month.  I thought for sure I would have a problem when I stopped, but I haven't had a single zit yet.  I hope it stays that way.

Where are we?

Well we are now dealing with live ammunition and an unprotected base. Yep we are firing live rounds. Kelli is off diet coke and is eating healthy. She is taking prenatal vitamins. I am just living day to day. I truly enjoy flight instructing. The hours are long....but I am learning so much. We have discussed baby names. I like Charles Lindbergh Jamal Jesus Kawasaki Byrd for a boy...and Amelia Erheart Maria Suki Shaquanda Byrd for a girl. We will see....Kelli hates both.
