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.

Thursday Thirteen #13
Thirteen Things about my oldest - Kayla

*I am taking this idea from my friend Janeen.

1. She took 2.5 years and 3 IVF’s to conceive
2. Her birthday is August 6th
3. She was 2 days early
4. In her short life, she has been dx’d with: Acid Reflux (severe as an infant and again at 18 months); a severe dairy allergy (she reacts if it touches her skin) and failure to thrive (which we are thankful she has overcome)
5. Her favorite show and character is Dora.
6. She has a very silly and wacky sense of humor
7. She LOVES gymnastics and can do headstands (against the wall), forward rolls, bear crawl across parallel bars and jump from high places – she comes up with new skills each week
8. She sleeps with her Map and Swiper dolls from Dora
9. She has a phobia of any person dressed up in costume; and even of statues of characters (i.e. a life-size statue of Humpty Dumpty)
10. She loves to line things up perfectly straight
11. She’s a Mama’s Girl
12. She loves everything about being outside – she will walk all the way around our “block”, even at night with her little flashlight and light-up sneakers
13. She loves to read and now she reads to me every night before bed

Awwwww! She sounds just adorable. I miss having 2 1/2 year olds!!
My niece has a phobia to people in costumes as well. She calls them "puppet people" for some reason.

I enjoyed your list--Jessica

She is soooo sweet! I can just see her with her little flash light walking outside (not today though, it's too cold). They are getting too big too fast. A very sweet TT!

I love kids that can do headstands...they look so cute when they do that kind of stuff. :P

My 13 are up.

What a sweet little girl! What a wonderful age 2 1/2 is. They are so full of wonder and see everything like it's the first time with such excitement. Mine will be 4 next month, and time just really flies.That's funny about her lining things up, mine did the same thing with crayons, and the magnets on my fridge.
Have a great Thursday!
