New Baby

Our good friends just had a beautiful baby girl on August 30th.

Due to mommy not feeling well and the kids having snotty noses we had not gone to visit.

While the kids were at Mom's Day Out this week I went to see the gorgeous Brynn Taylor. (Doesn't her name sound famous?!)

She was beautiful. Simply beautiful.

It even made me want another one!

Some day.

Feeling Good

Some of you have been emailing me asking how I am feeling. I wanted you all to know that I appreciate your thoughtfulness and your prayers.

Two weeks ago today they cut my dosage of Interferon in half. The Dr agreed with me that being nauseous all the time is not any way to live the next 11 months. Therefore, the dosage was chopped.

At first I felt no different. I was still nauseous, still tired, and still felt like crap.

It took about a week to start feeling better. I have not had to take any nausea medicine for a week. Other then the headaches (which I think are more of an allergy thing) I am actually feeling pretty good.

I have my appetite back, which may not be a good thing! I just have a hard time eating some things because they remind me of being at the cancer center. Hopefully, with time, that will go away.

I am able to sleep at night without Ambien, my husband is happy about that. Ambien does some crazy things to me!

And I don't really need to take naps anymore, even though I would like too!

Of course, there are days when I am better then others. But that happens even when you aren't on chemo drugs.

I am just glad to finally be feeling like a human again. It's been a long two months.

Huge thanks and hugs to all of you. I don't think I could make this long journey without my family, friends, and bloggy buds. You all rock!

Every week my mommy sends me a little surprise in the mail. Last week this was my surprise. I hope you know how much I appreciate my surprises. They make my week a little brighter. Thank you so much mom.

Suckers Rock!

Kyler's newest thing is to scale the counters and get into the cabinets to get out candy.

I have debated getting rid of the candy, but, well, I really like candy so that plan was quickly forgotten. Now I just hide it:)

The other day he got into the sucker bag and he dropped one on the floor.

I didn't notice.

Ella did though.

And she decided to eat it with the wrapper.

After watching her for awhile I decided to be a nice mommy and take the wrapper off.

Then she really enjoyed it!

Kyler didn't get a sucker until he was almost 2!

I guess you could say I have relaxed a little!

I love suckers!
Thanks Mom!
Suckers Rock!

I am finally an Aunt!

My sister had her baby boy today at 5:03PM.
His name is Deegan Dean.
He weighs 8 lbs 2 oz and is 19 1/2 inches long.

I don't have a picture yet, check back for that. I hear he has a good set of lungs and lots of dark hair.

I can't wait to meet him. Congratulations Aunt Jacki and Uncle Chris.

We are so happy for you.

Aunt Jacki is all tummy!

Just Like My Bro..

As you can see, Ella enjoys climbing just like her brother!

What am I going to do with these two monkeys?!

I'm glad Mama put this here!

Sweet, I did it!
