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.

Mothers Day 2009

Thursday, September 21, 2006
Well, Thursday is my Friday where work is concerned. It's been a long week and I'm still not feeling good. So it's an extra welcome day. I think the girls feel the same since they won't detach themselves from my legs once I get home from work on these days. They are a sleep and I'm crossing my fingers for a semi-good night tonight. Last night was better, but not back to normal. And with our colds, dh is still banished to the couch - so I miss him.

I'm thinking it will be low-key this weekend for the most part as we recover. I don't see us making it out to gymnastics and Kindermusik. I don't think the other Moms will appreciate me coughing all over their kids. Sunday, my best friend is coming over for a visit and my Dad (aka Gramps) will be babysitting the girls so we can go out for an adult lunch and shopping. I'm very excited.

And I'll say, as much as I don't like the days getting shorter, it's so nice to take the girls outside and feel the cool, crisp air. Kayla loves being able to put on her "life jacket" - it's what she calls any jacket, coat or zip-up sweat shirt. She gets this from Dora and it's one of my favorite of her Toddlerisms. We took a nice walk as a family yesterday. Alysa in the stroller and I pushed Kayla on her tricycle. It was fun.

And 3 days ago, Kayla started to get into singing the Alphabet song. Well, the first day, she managed "A-B-C..." and then would get confused. Well, today, she is singing all the way up to V. Now that's fast learning. I love their little sponges, er minds.

Well, I had to take a break from typing to go up to Kayla as she was crying. Not good. But it's typical that she needs to cry herself back to sleep after being sick. Not fun, but it's "normal". So this was my last time tonight to go up there. Hopefully she'll go to sleep soon and the rest of the night will be quiet. Well, one can dream, can't she?
