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.

Thirteen Things I’m Looking Forward to in 2007

1. My new bed due to arrive later this month
2. My birthday NOT being on Easter this year
3. Our family vacation at the end of June
4. Whatever days we get to have as a family
5. The Balloon Festival in July
6. Our Annual Mother’s Day Brunch
7. Not having a family obligation on Father’s Day this year (like last year)
8. My girls continuing on the path of weight-gain
9. Lowering our expenses even more – I just got a quote on new car insurance with over $500 in savings…
10. The girls’ birthdays – Kayla’s 3rd and Alysa’s 2nd (yikes!)
11. The arrival of my newest niece or nephew
12. Visiting him/her and my other 3 niece and nephews in Ohio
13. Continuing to explore the world through Kayla and Alysa’s eyes

You have some great things to look forward to. I hope you build some amazing memories.

By the way, I was reading your profile on your girls and they are darling. You went through a lot to get them here, and I am sure they now richly bless your lives. We struggled with infertility for awhile, too. It is a hard road to travel, but I am so grateful for the things I have learned while on it.

Good list. I would imagine that it sucks to have your birthday on Easter. Your birthday undoubtedly gets lost in the holiday.

My 13 are up.

I wish you luck with lowering your expenses. That is a job in itself.

My son's birthday fell on Easter (April 11th) once. That was a tough year. I almost forgot to buy him an Easter Basket, along with presents. And...it was tough to plan a birthday party.

Fantastic list! Sounds like a great year ahead. I am saying a prayer for the weight gain. Hopefully things will look up on that front.

Just stopping in to say hello and thanks for stopping by my Front Porch..and the Giggle sign...I bought it at Stein Mart....there was never any doubt in my mind which room I was going to put it in either ;)
