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.

It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Thursday, the light went up outside, Friday Kayla and I decorated inside, Friday night the tree went up and Saturday night we put the ornaments on the tree. Ever since, all I hear from Kayla…”Is it Christmas Day yet???” I keep telling her she’ll know b/c there will be a lot of presents under the tree. I tell her it’s Christmas TIME, not yet Christmas DAY! It’s not working. I’m hoping the countdown calendar will help her. She’s already not sleeping from all the excitement. Last night at 11pm (she had not yet fallen asleep), I got the “Is it Christmas Day yet?”. It may be driving me a little crazy, but I’m finding it SO adorable and exciting. This is the first year where she really gets it from the start. She REMEMBERS and she feels the magic of it.

With all the decorations

Helping with the tree

*pssst...giving up dairy was easier than giving up real Christmas Trees*

All decorated! At least they're thrilled with the tree - good thing they are all that matters!

I don’t know about you, but I can’t help but get caught up in all the excitement. Christmas is my favorite holiday anyway, but with kids it’s even better. I can not wait to see the looks on their faces this year after they see what Santa brought them. I just can’t help but get caught up in all of Kayla’s excitement. So since I can’t beat her, I might as well join her….

Is it Christmas Day yet???
