Rebecca Alwine, M.A.

Today I received the wonderful news that my diploma has been mailed! It reads:

American Military University
Master of Arts, Emergency and Disaster Management, WITH HONORS

Woo hoo! I am so excited. I knew I was close, but wasn't sure if I eked out the honors. Can't wait to get this framed and displayed. :)

Hospital Adventure

Well, last week I had quite the adventure. I was admitted to the hospital with contractions on Wednesday. I had to stay in bed and on medication there until Monday, when they sent me home on strict bed rest. Now I am on semi-strict bed rest. My doctor, concerned for my mental health, has allowed me one, non-stressful, seated outing a week. Otherwise I'm home, resting, not allowed to do chores or lift Declan. A challenge, I tell you!

On the positive side, Declan started full-time day care last week and loves it! He's thriving and learning so much. He is becoming more independent every day. He is now sleeping in a toddler bed and is progressing quite nicely. I love having a little man, but I miss my baby! At least he hasn't given up the cuddling yet...
