She's Growing Up

My little lady is growing up, she is hitting some milestones, such as....

Sitting up

She has been sitting up for the last couple of weeks, but in the last 4-5 days has officially become a "sitter", I can sit her down and she will just stay there for as long as she wants, or until a bigger (little) brother pushes her over. Notice the ADORABLE sweater, my sister (Marci) knitted it for her, she also made matching shoes!

Eating solids

So far Addy has tried Sweet Potatoes, Pears, Squash and then she had some of my mashed potatoes from Cracker Barrel last night, she even sat in a high chair!!!

She also loves her Jumperoo, so much so that she feel asleep in it. I love the drool, LOL!

My little man just came up to me and said "poo, poo, poo". I could smell that he had done the job and thought he was wanting his diaper changed. No sooner than I thought what a good little boy to come and tell me about his situation that I realized that something wasn't right. What do you think happened next? The little man was grabbing me by the hand still telling me "poo, poo" when I noticed that his little handshake had a present attached. SICK! He had reached down the back of his diaper and gotten a handful of ick and then so lovingly shared it with me! YUCK!!!

Google Me

Here’s how it works: Google “[your first name] needs” and share the first 10 results. That's it: it is that simple. But be honest! Anyone else want to play?

Here is my list:
1- Suzie needs to shut it!
2- Suzie needs her curtains taken down.
3- Suzie needs Dick. (ROFLMAO)
4- Suzie needs your help.
5- Poor little Suzie would need years of therapy after the unfortunate Santa wardrobe malfunction.
6- Suzie needs monetary help ASAP!
7- Suzie needs to just shut up!
8- Suzie needs an image tune-up.
9- Suzie is just one of the many animals under Saga's roof right now and they all just need some TLC.
10- Suzie needs additional medical care.

Winter Blues

I am feeling so gray today, I just want spring to be here already. Instead I am looking out my window at a very gray day! Cloudy, cold and a little bit of snow. I am stuck inside taking care of 2 sick babies. Jack and Addy both have new colds to add to the long list of sicknesses this winter.

I long for the warmer days when I can take the kids out for a stroller ride or to a park to play. I can't wait for the new leaves to appear and enjoy those first few weeks of spring. I love the bright green of brand new leaves. I love watching the flowers start to grow and the grass starting to green up. I get giddy when the willows start getting their leaves, they are the first trees to show a hint of spring and they hang on until the bitter end. I also love walking along the river when it is swollen up with spring runoff. I would love to clean out my garage, but not today, it is too cold and yucky. I love opening my windows and letting the house air out, feeling the crisp clean morning air flow through out the house.

Ahhhhh, I long for spring.

When It Rains, it POURS!!

My last few entries have been about us being sick....So is this one! Since I am using this as a journal I just have to jot it all down.

I was super sick last week. Super sore throat, fever and achy. I am now convinced I had strep. I am still not up to 100%, but I am getting there.

Yesterday I took Jack to the Dr. because he had a rash on his little man part, which turned out to be nothing. The Dr. checked him over and noticed a very red throat with patches all over it. He ran a strep test and it came back positive. Jack for the last few nights has been a total BEAR! He wakes up screaming and then continues to cry and scream for hours. But, during the day he is just fine, running around playing and acting like nothing is wrong. Last night was absolutely horrible. Jack was up at midnight screaming, he woke up Addy and she then had to throw a fit. This lasted a couple of hours. Addy never really feel into a deep sleep and I started wondering if she has strep too. All day long today Addy has been super fussy and Jack hasn't taken a nap, SERIOUSLY I dont' know how the boy functions on such little sleep.

Trenton walked in the door at a little after 3 and told me he wasn't feeling well. He went and laid down and is now sleeping. I called the Dr. and am taking him and Addy in tonght to the after hour clinic.

I am still wondering if I should take myself to the Dr, but now I think it would just be too late for meds to be of any help.

Oh the fun times at our house.

And The Show Must Go On

.......even when Mommy is sick. I have a horrible sore throat, so sore that even after taking 800mg of ibuprofen it still hurts to swallow my own spit. I have a fever, so I am also super achy and just feel down right rotten. I have spent the day in my pj's and fuzzy socks. Addy & Jack are in diapers, I took their jammie's off, but don't have the energy to go find them something to wear. The only reason why I am blogging is because I am nursing Addy, which means I have to be in a chair, so in front of the computer I am. I just called Hal and asked him to get me a frosty on his way home. I saw that Arianne had one today and that just sounds so heavenly to pour down my sore throat.

Wanna see what my house looks like when I take a "sick day"?

Hey, just a little update....Jack is back to being a pooing machine! Miralax is wonderful!
