On the GO!

So we're rockin and rollin all over the place. Looks like she has practiced her yoga positions (downward dog if you know yoga - hands and feet on the floor)! It's not a short video and yes, she eventually moves....I promise!

Nice day in January!







It was unreal today! We spent most of the day outside. I couldn't resist taking and posting these pictures!!!!!!

I'm a NEW woman!

I had tubes put in my ears this morning at UCLA! I loved playing in my little crib and I thought I looked pretty in my hospital gown. Is it breezy in here or is it just me?
The procedure went well and was very fast. My mom came in the operating room with me and she had to hold down my arms while the mask was put on my face so I would go to sleep. I cried really hard and eventually went limp! Mom was not happy about having to do this part. Isn't that what nurses are for? Then she left me with my blankie and met daddy in the waiting room. The doctor said I had A LOT of build up from all the ear infections and it was like cutting through "liquid cement". I was VERY unhappy in the recovery room and didn't stop crying for over an hour. Anyway, I finally stopped crying and got to go home!

I was sad most of the day and wanted to be in my mommy's arms ALL day! Thank you mom for being patient and understanding. Thank you to Auntie Jamie who skipped the gym to bring us Starbucks and yummy treats. Sorry I wasn't myself. I have a low grade fever now but when the doctor called to check in on me, she said that was normal. I am tired so I am going to bed now.

I hope I am a new baby tomorrow!!!!

Pediatric ENT

Amelia had an appt today with Dr. Shapiro who said that Amelia would benefit greatly from tubes in her ears. So.....we're scheduled for surgery Thursday morning. I will let you know how it goes. Here she is at the doctor today enjoying her bottle while we waited for the doctor.

Thank you!







Ryan and I went out to dinner with Ryan's MBA classmates! They were so sweet to get Amelia a girly stroller/walker, clothes and a doll. They also got Jbird a Thomas the Train track set. He LOVED it and so did Amelia. Here they are enjoying their presents!

I put on an Einstein for the kids in Amelia's crib and Jeremy kept getting in Amelia's way! Don't worry, this doesn't happen often...just a rainy day treat!

Jeremy & Jack




They took a break from playtime to hang on the couch under the Kansas blanket!!!!

Stubborn Crawler

She moved forward yesterday but refused to do it for the camera! She does like to push up on her legs....hope she's not walking too soon :)

Since it was so nice yesterday, we watched the Steelers game in the garage. Just in case you're wondering why the carpet is split and different couches.

Xmas delayed!




We went to Missouri and had a fantastic time! Jeremy loved seeing his cousins, playing with his grandmommy and seeing all his aunts and uncles! Santa treated him well and it was a whirlwind of present opening! Amelia and Nellie were covered in paper! They LOVED it! One of Jeremy's favorite presents was the tool set he got from Oma and Opa. Here he is playing with it!!!!!
