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.

On the Mend
Well, we are almost all over our colds. Alysa is the only one left with a runny nose still. My cough is lingering, but I'm feeling normal again. And Kayla is FINALLY back to a normal sleeping pattern. It's always a rough adjustment getting to to sleep good after the extra attention she gets from being sick.

Then, of course, DH finds out yesterday that his boss wants him in Baltimore today through tomorrow. HUH? His boss is notorious for this last minute communication. Luckily I was able to rearrange my work schedule, so he can go. So he leaves today at noon and will be home sometime tomorrow night. So it's just me and my girls tonight. He'll be missed.

I have some home-made baby food recipes ready for me to try out tomorrow. Alysa despised baby food - actually she most anything you have to feed to her. She only wants to eat crackers, toast and her bottles (or cup). Currently she loves soy yogurt, but we'll see how long that lasts. Hopefully she'll like some of this new stuff and it will help with the transition to table foods. We have a bad track record of eating in our house with Kayla's dairy allergy and both of them having GERD (Reflux). So it's a constant struggle for me with feeding them.

I also plan on working with Kayla on finger painting. For Father's Day this year, I had the idea to put their hand prints on a t-shirt for DH. I figured it could even be the start of a yearly thing so he could have a nice collection of their growing hands. No such luck - Kayla wanted NOTHING to do with the paint. So Sunday, I made a trip to Michaels and got some finger paints and water colors. I'm hoping I can ease her into it. I'll try painting it on her hands. But she doesn't like to be dirty - so I'm sure I'll get. "Mommy mess." "Wash fingers?" We'll see - hopefully I can have a fresh masterpiece for DH's desk at work when he gets home tomorrow night.

I guess we'll see how productive I am today and tomorrow - as any mom knows, it depends on the kind of day the kids have. Wish me luck!
