Some cliff notes to help find the girls. Kimmie comes in second. Annie comes in third. Annie is the violent sweeper to the right of the screen.
Yesterday Madeline had her first pig tails in. It was super cute!
Our kids rarely get out at night. Since they wake up at 6:30 every morning regardless of what time we put them to bed we tend to put them to bed early so that they are well rested. Last night Daddy went to see Hot Fuzz at the theater leaving Aunt Steph and I home [...]
“Daddy, where you?” — Madeline Said while looking for me in the pantry. I was getting something behind the door. I think the speech therapy is already showing results. (Just kidding.)
Today we went to Portrait Innovations to get some family pictures taken. We needed to get a casual family photo. We also needed pictures of Annie and Kimberly in their tutus for their dance recital since we did not want to pay a lot through the dance company. And we had yet to get Mimi’s [...]
Kimberly wrote this on the white board on Mother’s Day. It was so sweet. I had to get a pic!
A friend of mine had a great idea to make handprints for a Mother’s Day. I loved the idea but could not think where I could put them until I came up with this idea. I think it came out cute.
Today was Madeline’s first day of speech therapy. She did as well as we could expect. It took her about 40 minutes to warm up to her teacher and she did not communicate with her much. We are hoping that in the weeks to come she will get more used to this. The Therapist minced [...]
“Scus you” ~ Annie She tells everyone to say excuse me when they burp or do anything impolite. It really is such a cute little way she says it.
Bill and I have noticed that we are so much more patient with Mimi since her diagnosis. It really is nice.
A big thank you to everyone who has sent emails about how strong I am and how special Mimi is. You are all right, I am very strong. I wasn’t feeling it yesterday, but I am today. I know that we will face this head on and I know Mimi will succeed. You were also [...]
Well, actually she was feeling very hot. She had a high fever for 2 days. Yesterday amongst all the other chaos I took Kimberly into the Dr. She has 2 ear infections. She is on antibiotics. She is feeling so much better already. She is such a little Mommy. I wanted to take her into [...]
Madeline had her speech evaluation done today. We always knew something was not working correctly. She has always been able to comprehend huge amounts of information but can barely say 10-15 words. She has good control of her mouth so that was not the issue. The issue lies in her brain. I have quoted from [...]
Today at Mimi’s neurologist appt the Dr. flitted from one thing to the next. One minute he was saying that we should increase her dose and check her levels later in the week. He flipped to the page about her EEG and closed it faster than you can blink and said it was fine. He [...]
I have taken some time to ponder what my issue is. I have come to find out that about the time of my hysterectomy my life changed. Everything fell into place with the kids and I wasn’t having to work so hard. That is when things began to fall apart. I had always used a [...]
Madeline has got the hang of potty training. Today I was washing dishes and she came in naked as a jay bird to tell me “poop.” I was praying it was in the potty and it was! Woohooo! My big girl! She was so happy. She made everyone come in the bathroom and look. Then [...]
Today the girls wanted to rotate their Little People stuff in the house. They have to rotate between their Dora castle and their Little People stuff otherwise there is just far too much junk. I told them that once they had the Dora stuff cleaned up I would do it. This generally takes them ages [...]
“You gotta keep that kiss forever!” ~ Annie said emphatically and passionately “You keep that kiss forever!” ~ Kimberly said in a very bossy tone “Ever” ~ Mimi said with much gusto When I kiss them on the cheek I tell them to keep it there so they will always have it. This is how [...]
Men, like nails, lose their usefulness when they lose direction and begin to bend. ~Walter Savage LandorSunday, May 6th, 2007
I haven’t posted a lot lately and honestly I have been in a funk. I am sure all people go through it. Just floating through days while everything is just going on. Not living actively just getting from one day to the next. This is not normally how I live but I do sometimes get [...]
This week the kids have had runny noses. They have been kinda grouchy and that has rubbed off on me a bit. Daddy has been working tons of hours on a deadline and that means extra time for Mommy with the little ladies. It is amazing how a couple drips of snot can make them [...]« Previous Entries
