Life Happens

A few things have happened since my last post. Well... a lot, actually.

Fox can now roll from back to belly and he will go from one end of a room to another in the blink of an eye. He also is a kicking fool! I have bruises on my legs to prove it. Crawling is in our near future.
I am trying to teach him to wave and say "Hey!" and I can tell when I do it he wants to copy me.

My grandfather was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis last Friday the 16th and we got the awful news there was nothing the doctors could do for him. After 3 weeks in the hospital, being pumped with a cocktail of drugs, being put on a ventilator, having his lungs flushed and biopsied, and coming off the ventilator... they made the discovery. He was transferred to hospice that day and I have spent a lot of time while he's been sick.
He passed away last night and although I had prepared myself for this day nothing makes it easier. My faith has become stronger and I talk to God almost daily. I put my faith that He has a plan for all of us.

Yesterday I also was laid off after working at my current job for 17 months. My position was eliminated and outsourced to a call center. It came as a huge shock to me and 3 other ladies I worked with who got the boot. I was very upset in the moment because I have an almost 6 month old baby, bills, and an unemployed fiance. How are we going to survive? But like I said above I have faith that God will bring us through this situation. I hated being away from Fox for 10-11 hours a day (including my commute). I have always dreamed of starting my own business so maybe this is a step in the right direction. Who knows? Well, He does. ;)

I am so thankful to have Fox to keep me happy. I can be so upset but when that little boy smiles at me, it melts my heart and clears my mind of all the negative. I have to stay strong for him and my family.
