Is it just me or does his hand look blueish (compare his hand to mine)? I keep telling the doctor that I'm starting to get concerned about him, but they say his breathing and heart rate are good. We are scheduling a cath soon.

Lately he's been getting tired VERY easily from playing.
Sleeping constantly.
Crying for only a second because of lack on energy.
Wheezes constantly.

So we'll see.

Time Flies

I was looking back at some old blog posts today and it’s amazing how fast we’re all growing… even me!  From when Lily was born to today everything has completely changed.  I was so scared back then, and now I enjoy every minute of being a mom.  I’m so ready to have my large family!  People always ask me if I wish I were older, and my answer changes sometimes, but I have to say that I love it.  Who knows where I’d be today without them?  I mean they have inspired me to grow up.  They make me want structure in my life.  They make me enjoy the little things… savor moments.  Yeah I could do without the dirty looks and the rude comments, but it’s a price you pay when you have kids at such a young age.  I have such love for my family and can’t wait to one day have another!  I have had to grow up faster and do things I never thought I’d be doing at this time in my life.  But I feel myself growing everyday and have my family to thank.  I can’t wait to see the person I am in a couple more years!   

Healthy Lunch.

Yesterday I stocked up on meat, fruits, and veggies at Publix. I’m so excited for us to starting eating right, and more ACTUAL meals! Here’s Lily’s lunch… Austin and her loved all the fun foods!

Life Happens.

Today I had to go get something to eat… I was dying. So Chris and I headed out for lunch… or so we thought. Chris forgot to put the garage door up and backed right into it, so it’s pretty much useless now. The glass is all broken the wood is torn. So yeah… life happens lol. Atleast we got it up and now we just lock our garage door to the house.

The Stomach Bug.

Last night poor Lily caught the inevitable stomach bug that everyone has caught.  And today Chris came home from work because of it.  So today we have all suffered in bed.  The kids haven’t been eating so this juice has been the only thing keep their nutritious acceptable.

Signing Time!

Lily and Austin are so smart! Today we've been working on sign language. Austin can already sign "more" and "milk"!
Lily pretty much has it all, but she'd rather just say the words!
[In this picture Lily is signing "Mom"! :)]

Lily's getting pretty good at her ABC's!
Today we watched a couple alphabet videos and went through some flashcards!
It amazes me how fast she learns, yet potty training is the hardest thing in the world to figure out!

Anniversary Dinner!

3 Year Anniversary.

We are going to celebrate our anniversary this weekend, but since today was the actual anniversary, I made this pork chop- mushroom thingy on rice. It was yummy! And a lemon meringue pie for dessert!

I loved having a meal for just the two of us!
(well besides Frank Sinatra in the background!)

I do... again!

Three years ago today, I told the man I love that he would become my everything in life, my partner, my other half.  That day was beautiful.  I felt so loved and happy and was so ready to start my roadless traveled with my new husband!  Since that day we have grown into not only a married couple, but a family!  We have had our wars but have fought them head on.  Now we are stronger than ever!  I love that man so much!

So today I say, "I Do", again!  I'm recommitting myself to him.  And hopefully the next three years will be even better than the last!  I love you Old Man!

Slumber Party.

Last night was the first night Austin and Lily slept in the same room. It was quite a night. If you enlarge this picture you can see all of Austin's fun new scratches on his face. I don't know if they're necessarily from Lily, but they are definitely from last night! Hopefully tonight will be a little easier on all of us!

Now that Austin is almost 15 months old, we are finally getting his crib fixed.
The movers broke it when we moved to GA, and it has really sucked not having it.
Poor Austin has been sleeping in his pack n play all these months.
Anyway hopefully it'll be fixed and he can sleep in it by tomorrow.

Sticky Snow.

I love that I woke up to snow! Snow rarely ever sticks out here. Although it will probably be gone by tomorrow it was fun to wake up to a winter wonderland this morning!

Friday, February 12, 2010


Yes, SNOW in Georgia! And not just a quarter of an inch... it's STILL SNOWING! What a wonderful Valentines weekend! Lily has been enjoying every second of it this year! Chris loves shaking trees onto her head (pictured above), and we all enjoyed grape snow cones! Excited for tomorrows festivities!

It's always fun when Emily comes to visit! She makes fun foods, get Lily all dressed up everyday, and is always thinking of fun things to do with us! She's the best!

Austin's FIRST haircut!

The (accidental) look on his face explains it all... he was not too happy about it! But it NEEDED to be done! I'm very pleased with the turn out.

Cheer Sport Nationals

This weekend I worked as a Cheer Sport Vendor with my sister and her co-worker.
It was fun to get away and make a little extra cash!
We can always use the money and now I can start saving up for a Macro Lens!!

Alex said we look like we are on QVC haha!

Most mornings he has THREE EGGS, a yogurt, a banana, and some dry cereal.
The kid is a BEAST!
