Southern New Jersey

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 100th Post
I can’t believe this is my 100th post. I’ve never been a journal person, so in some ways Blogging has been hard for me. I can get overwhelmed and caught up in my little world and miss a day or two or three. And when that happens, it’s even harder to get back on b/c I feel like I’m so far behind, it’s too overwhelming. But, so far I’ve stuck it out. It’s been fun and I’ve learned some more html. As most people who know me know, I love learning anything new about computers.

So now, to celebrate, I am going to take a “page” out of my Sister’s Blog and share with you 100 things about me.

I hope you enjoy!
