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

It's 4 a.m.
...do you know where your child is?

J woke up last night at 4am to get a drink of water. He found Alysa's door wide open (usually I hear her open it but I was apparently zonked). He comes in to me all frantic telling me that Alysa was no in her bed and he couldn't find her. I looked first to note the gate to the stairs was up and I know she can't scale it or open it and put it back up. I know he was a bit panicked thinking the worst. But since she's done this to me at naptime (hiding from me), I was pretty confident I knew where she was. I was right...

She was in her bed asleep when I went to bed. So she apparently woke up and decided to play under her bed. She slept there the rest of the night.

This is what happens when you turn your back for 2 seconds when your 2 1/2 year old has a pair of scissors (safety scissors) in her hand. Her older sister gets a hair cut.

We're currently at my Sister's while J is at home working hard. We had a pleasant drive out here and all the kids were beside themselves with excitement when they all saw each other. It will definitely be a fun couple of days.

Oh I don't blame J for being scared. I'm glad she was just under the bed. And the hair cut is cute. I hope she didn't sever the curls;)

That is too funny! Although I would have had a moment of panic too; especially waking up in the middle of the night and being fully awake!

It seems haircuts are a rite of passage around that age! I'm surprised Kayla let Alysa cut her hair!

She looks like a Sleeping Beauty, so peaceful. Oh, I know I would have had a panic attack too.

Luckily, Lindsay, cut just a little under her bangs, to where you can tell if you are looking, but it's not very noticeable.

Katelyn cut her hair the same age, a big chunck off the side, when her hair was super long, I think I cried.

Life with small children is never boring, is it?
