My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

My Little Big Girl
Well, we are all slowly getting better. Alysa is the last to get the cold, so she is still not feeling good, but the rest of us are on the mend. Now we just have to catch up on our sleep. Kayla mostly - b/c she is still going into 10 minute tantrums over the small things.

I have to say that now that Kayla is 2, I see such a difference in her. Her and Alysa are 16 months apart. Boy was that a rough transition. And I know that it is a hard adjustment for a child of any age - welcoming a new baby into the family. But I can see how it would be easier, had Kayla been 2. She is turning into such a Little Mommy. She is now into wanting to really help. When I give Alysa her bottles, she will come over and say "Kayla help." or "I help.". She puts her little hand on the end of the bottle and helps me hold it. Of course, if Alysa tries to put her hand on the bottle, Kayla will push it away. She won't even share Alysa's bottle. LOL She also like to give Alysa puffs or toast to eat. And yes, she feeds herself in between as well. It's so neat to see this new side of her. Even though she will not think twice of pushing Alysa down to the ground for trying to touch "her" toys, she will also rush to her side to pat her head because "Alysa bumped head".

And I know DH is secretly hoping for some Tomboy in both of them - so they will be interested in working on the car he is rebuilding as they get older. But for now, I see a girly-girl working her way out in Kayla. She has recently found my jewelry chest and loves to rummage through it. When she finds a necklace or bracelet that I will let her play with, she walks around the house so proud to look so pretty. And a week ago, while I was quickly painting my toenails b4 work one morning, she asked me to "Do Kayla's toes?". So I just got done painting her toenails for the 2nd time. The pink polish looks so cute on her teeny tiny toenails. And I can tell it makes her feel special to "be like Mommy".

I can see all the new fun things that are in our future. And hopefully grease, oil and tools will be there for DH too.
