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.

A successful day back
Kayla is officially back to school. She is so excited that "summer is over" and to be back to class with her friends. I was afraid she would not be able to fall asleep last night, but luckily she had no problems and I didn't have to wake her up today.

When we got to school, she walked in and when she saw her teacher's assistant, she ran up to her and threw her arms around her. Definitely happy to be back. I brought her to her classroom and dropped off her medicine pack and safe snack box. Alysa and I then headed off for a special treat of Philadelphia soft pretzels. Alysa wanted to stay at school too but the promise of the pretzels helped to get her out the door. When I picked Kayla up it was business as usual - she "did nothing", sat next to "no one" and had a fruit snack bar for snack.

All ready to go

She was excited to have a pretzel and a cookie, although my strange child preferred the pretzel!

Kayla loved her first day...

Tomorrow she'll only be at school for an hour b/c the girls have an OMT appointment at 10:30. I'm hoping it goes as well as the first one.

I am glad to hear Kayla had a great first day back to school. That's wonderful! She does look very excited and happy to be going back.

Oh, does that pretzel look yummy! If I had my choice to, I'd choose the pretzel over the cookie too!

She looks like such a big girl. I am so happy she enjoyed getting back to school. P is off this week so we are trying to cram a million (literally) things in that need to get done around the house. We were carpet shampooing at midnight last night. Will catch up soon.
