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.

This & that
Monday evening, J was ready for a late night swim and decided to let Kayla join him. She’s routinely up reading in her room until 10-10:30, so a 9:30pm swim wouldn’t be a huge deal. When she came downstairs, sneaking past Alysa’s room (who was fast asleep) she was beside herself with excitement. Her pure wonder and delight at the stars, the nighttime sounds and warmth of the water was infectious. A perfect time to live life and see the world through her eyes.

Then Wednesday my friend Jenn (the one who moved to California in May) and I were finely able to get it together and get the kids to sit down with the webcam. It was so great to see her and Emma and the kids were just beyond excited bouncing around, joking, making silly faces and showing each other toys. It did all of us good to see each other and now all the girls talk about is going to see Emma’s new house. I can tell there will be many more webcam chats in our future.

My back is on the mend thankfully and I even braved Kohl’s again to return a few things. Alysa was much better behaved thankfully and I even got her a new outfit which made her day. Considering she ends up with 99% hand-me-downs from Kayla and takes it all so well, I was glad to give her a new outfit to show Daddy.

They’re currently outside soaked from head to toe. J never took down the “ball pit” from Kayla’s party which is an inflatable kiddie pool filled with balls. They jumped in and of course it’s full of water from the rain. But that just made it all the more thrilling for them. Oh to be a kids again…
