Army venting

I guess I’m just a little upset, because before we were told Chris wasn’t leaving till the 18th.  They’ve been stringing us along and I honestly never know when he’s going, because the plan is always changing.  I kind of wish he would have left back in March so it wouldn’t have caused all this stress.  But seriously I’ve loved this extra time with Chris.  Well now they say he’s leaving on the 8th.  But he has to go in and work on Saturday… OUR LAST WEEKEND!  Plus since the change of command is this week he has to go into work next week.  I just believe they’re sending him just because of his dwell time when we told them that the cardiologist TOLD US that Austin’s surgery will prob. be in June or July!  I mean seriously!  This is a compassionate reassignment for AUSTIN and they send him away right when we need him here?  They could wait till October for the next rotation.  I just don’t think his command is all on board.  It’s like there is no communication at all! 
Anyway I’m really going to miss my hubbyboo

This week will be a busy one!

Watching Miss USA 2009

Lily really enjoyed watching Miss USA this year. She was dancing to all the music, and ooh and awing everything! I really think the California should have won. That gay marriage question was unfair. But whatever.
Lily is this year Miss Cutie 2009 :)

(I haven't learned how to take pictures at night so these suck... oh well)

She's fine

They were at the hopital till 2 am and FINALLY they sent her home saying she was fine. If she did eat something it probably wasn't even in her system anymore by the time they saw her. But i guess I was worrying about nothing. But seriously, Chris and i both thought something was wrong with her. But i guess we were wrong.

Ear infection?

Lily was acting so weird.  Like she wasn't complaining, but that girl had NO balance.  She kept tripping over herself and couldn't walk towards anything without tripping or fall over.  I tried to see if she was faking by having her get a piece of candy, but she couldn’t make it to the bowl.  After a little while she couldn't take it anymore and just started crying her eyes out.  Then it was like she was seeing things.  She was trying to pick up something in the air, and then trying to get "it" away from her.  Then she ran into my arms and started crying pointing to the air.  She suddenly said, "NO NO NO" to "it" and her whole body went tense and she started crying again.  I know I can't explain it in writing, but is NOT doing well at all.  My mom said she either found some medicine or she has a massive ear infection so Chris just took her to the Emergency Room.  I hope she's okay!!!!



We finally put up our first decoration in the house.  I painted the letters, because chris's army friends came over.  I wanted there to be SOME personality.  Anyway here it is!

sicker than ever

I know i probably shouldn't have taken this picture, but now you understand.
Besides he was going to cry anyway.
Today Austin has been so so so so sick. He is uncontrollably coughing his lungs out, very congested, cannot stop crying, has both eyes and ear infected, got his LAST Synagis shot for the year, and is so pitiful! I haven’t stopped holding him since he woke up this morning. When I did put him down to change his diaper he FREAKED. Right now he’s liking the keyboard noise, but otherwise he is miserable. Even right now as I type he has this miserable look on his poor face. I can’t seem to make him happy. I just want him better NOW! Atleast his heart isn’t reacting to him being sick. I just want him to smile again.

UPDATE: Austin feels like he is getting a fever.

My giveaway!!

Tea Party Protest and Aussie

Austin and I went to the doctor today and he is not doing well. His hearts fine so there’s no need to go to the hospital, but BOTH of his eyes are infected PLUS his ear. He’s been so upset. I’ve been having to give him baby Tylenol a little too often and he’s been watching to eat every hour on the dot. I feel like there’s nothing I can do, but just give him loves, food, and meds. That guy has my heart hurting.

Also today was the Tea Party Protest for tax day. Chris and Lily went to show support for Fair Tax. Which I actually agree with… I just couldn’t go due to my VERY sich baby. But Chris said that it was a lot of fun. He managed to take pictures for me. Anyway I hope my baby feels better soon!

Aussie Poo feeling lowzy.

{enlarge to see eye gunk}
Today Austin was fine for most of the day… I mean he was still coughing some, but no big deal. Then soon after I picked up Chris from the Marta Austin’s eye started getting gunk in it. So I of course got it out. Then it would come back, double. I was getting SO ANNOYED. It just kept getting worse and worse. So finally I decided to just let it go so it could fix itself. That was SO HARD watching the gunk swimming in the middle of his eyeball… it looks so annoying for him. Anyway by the end of the night his eye was glued completely shut from the dried up gunk. Plus his cough got worse and he looked terrible. These pictures are from the beginning of the evening.


I have updated from April 1st till now so go check way back then! It’s a picture of a flower!

And leave comments!

Hello Chris's chair

Meet Chris’s chair. He loves his chair. The only time I am aloud to sit in his chair is if I’m nursing Austin. He has appointed Austin as the new chair “owner” while he’s gone. I am to have Austin sit in his chair, because little Austin will temporarily be the man of the house.

Easter fun!

{Easter Basket}
{Dye Eggs}
{Easter Egg Hunt}
Today was a busy, busy day. We started out the day going to church up at the Lilburn ward. Lily did SO well at nursery. It was weird seeing kids I used to babysit all grown up! But all in all it was the same old Lilburn. Nat decided that our kids should take naps before the afternoon activities, so we left church a little early and the kids took their naps. Before Lily went down we let her have her Easter basket… SHE LOVED IT!!! She was excited about everything! I was so tired from waking up so early that Lily and I took a nap together. Then after we woke up we all went over to Natalie’s in-laws to dye eggs and do an Easter egg hunt. Chris and I left a little early and started getting dinner ready. Chris made the ham and I cleaned the downstairs. Nat’s family and Jess came over and we ate an Easter dinner. Then Jess made cookies and Nat, Jess, and I stayed up till nearly one am talking. It was a fun, tiring day!

{HaPpY eAsTeR}

I know I have A LOT of updating to do... I'll get there :)
We are going to Lilburn Ward today for Easter Sunday!

Sandy Spring {easter pictures}

Today Chris and I went up to the Atlanta temple to take some pictures in front of the pretty flowers. The kids did not want to cooperate, but I got a few cute ones. Afterwards we went to the Perimeter Mall and enjoyed that part of town. We were right near where we got married so that was pretty neat!

Mall With Jess

Today Jess and I went to the Mall of GA. She had lost her luggage this trip so we needed to buy new items. It was fun. Then the weather turned AWFUL, but Natalie, Jessica, and I still managed to go to outback for dinner :)

I got the kids ready to go to the mall, but they ended up not coming… oh well. They still looked cute!

Emily, Chris and I were watching the kids while Nat and Jess went to the grocery store. We played memory, but the kids grew tired of it fast so we went outside. They LOVED IT!!! Well until Deano got a splinter.
