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.

Our Weekend
We had a pretty low-key weekend. The girls had gymnastics on Friday which is always fun, hectic and exhausting for me. And I will say, there is something to be said for diapers. I had to take Kayla out twice (once in her class and once in Alysa’s) to go potty. But…she came to me and she had no accident. So I’m very proud of her.

Saturday was a low-key day of cleaning and normal household stuff. It was fairly chilly, but nice enough that I was able to get the girls outside for a while. Kayla got to ride her new bike (yes, I still have to post those pics) – and I can tell it will take some time to teach her how to peddle.

Sunday, my parents came down and my Mom watched the girls while my Dad took me out to have a sinfully dairy-rich breakfast. Mmmmm…oh so good. Then I got to go shopping at The Children’s Place and Target to finish up Kayla’s summer wardrobe. She is officially done. Yay! Now if it would just STAY warm. ;)

My Mother also took Kayla yesterday, just the two of them to the store so Kayla could pick out some underpants. My Mom got her 2 packages and of course, both packages had to be Dora. No variety there for my little one. Why am I not surprised? The outing made Kayla’s day as she loves to go to the store – any store and this one had her train ride outside, so that made it even more fun.

It’s Monday now and nothing extraordinary is happening this week, but I am fully looking forward to this coming weekend. Friday, my Mom is taking the girls for a sleep-over. Friday night I am going out with some girls for my job b/c one of them just got married. Then I get to “sleep-in” Saturday morning. J is actually off from work b/c in the afternoon, we are all going (us, the girls and my parents) to see Sesame Street Live. So J and I plan on sleeping in to maybe 8am? Woohoo!!! Then we’re going out to breakfast before heading up to my parents to get them ready for Elmo! Then of course, Sunday is Easter. We are staying over at my Mom and Dad’s so we don’t have to drive up 2 days in a row. And sometime in the afternoon, my BIL will stop by to see the girls for Easter. The IL’s are still in Florida, so we won’t be seeing them. I hear the Easter Bunny has some fun stuff for their baskets this year. And I really can’t wait to see the look on Kayla’s face when she sees her chocolate bunny. I know that will make her day. Then of course, my littlest one is really into “choca” these days too. Though I don’t think the chocolate bunny will impress her as much.

We have not taken the girls to see the Easter Bunny and we don’t think we will. I know Kayla won’t have anything to do with it, and from how Alysa’s been reacting to strangers recently, I don’t see her doing it either. Neither did Santa and I’m not sure I want to bother if no picture will come of it. But who knows, I have a few days to change my mind – I do keep going back and forth… If I change my mind I'll let you know how it goes...

How was everyone’s weekend?

Isn't it nice to have family close? My mom takes Zane every Saturday morning so that SRH and I can each go exercise. Delightful!

Sounds like a fabulous weekend - yay on the potty training!

Sounds like she has mastered the potty! Good for her. Jason will have none of it. He's happy being stinky. Hope you have a wonderful Easter week and have fun at Sesame Street Live :)

What fun you had! Dora undies...LOL! We had to have the Princess ones! I am jealous that you get to go to Sesame Street Live, and that you get to have a night of sleep that doesn't depend on one of your girls getting up! We didn't do much of anything here. We are having some family here for Easter, so that will be fun!
