Hello 2014!

Our last month and a half has been very busy..  James is still in the middle of training for the Cincinnati Fire Department.  James was also chosen to be the new intelligence officer for the 123rd Air Control Squadron.  He will be going to AMS in a few months and will come back as a 2nd Lieutenant.  Then the Becker family will be heading to Goodfellow AFB so James can take a 7 month intelligence officer course.  I'm so proud of him and I can't wait to see what God has in store for our family.

Hudson now has two teeth.  He learned to crawl on November 21st and now he flies around our condo pretty quickly.  He also learned to stand up on his own the same day.  He spends a good portion of his days pulling up to a standing position and then letting go, to see how long he can stand with no hands.  His little hips swivel back and forth as he tries to keep his balance, but he can only make it work for about ten seconds before he tumbles down.  It makes me smile every time.  :-)

I just finished my first semester as a full time student.  I am happy to say that after four years of college, I am no longer a Freshman.  Since I am in a five year program, if I continue at this rate, I should be done by the time I am.....42 years old....right about the time Hudson will get his driver's license.  I pray to God that it doesn't take me that long and that I am able to continue going to school full time.  

While I am between semesters our goal is to get our condo staged to sell.  We would like to expand the family but our condo is getting a little tight and Achilles desperately needs a fenced in backyard.

Here are some things that happened recently.

We had a great time at a baby Halloween party.

Hudson was the only boy to attend!  He loved the female attention...

We played in the leaves...

Turned Hudson into a monkey...

Decorated the Christmas tree...

Welcomed Hayden Cromer (Hudson's cousin) into the world...

And Hudson celebrated the end of the semester by destroying my homework!

This has been a wonderful year and I look forward to seeing what 2014 has to offer.
