Ribbit, Ribbit...

A while ago, Todd was reading a children's book to our niece Gabby with all sorts of animals in it...the reading went as follows...

"The cow says moo...the dog says arf, arf...the rabbit says RIBBIT, RIBBIT..."


Needless to say, Todd has some explaining to do to Gabby...

This is a frog, Todd...this animal says ribbit, ribbit!!

This one's for you, Christy...

I had the most bizzare dream last night...I had to share it with everyone...

So, I went over to visit Chris and Christy and when I walked in the house, the baby was there!! To my surprise and dismay, I was not told of his arrival...which made me MAD!! I walked over and looked at him, and he was no bigger than my hand!! I asked Christy how much he weighed and she told me he was 7 1/2 pounds. I thought to myself, "There's NO WAY this kid weighs that much...2 pounds MAYBE." I asked Christy when she had him since I'd seen her the day before and she said that he came last night...last night?? How are you home from the hospital at 8 in the morning?? (It was 8 in the morning in my dream...)

I was holding my nephew, Armando (Not sure what this is about), and he seemed to soil himself...I offered to change a diaper and Christy told me "No...you don't know how..." "Really??", I retorted, "I do have a 5-month old daughter...all I have to do different is cover the "boy part" so I don't get soaked!!" By this time, I'm a little irritated... (in my dream, of course)

I then offer to barbecue some kielbasa sausage for the new parents as a gesture of my love (I have no idea why) and walk into their HUGE backyard...(clearly another part of my dream) and throw the kielbasa in the grass because I'm so mad no one told me my nephew was here...AND they still think he's 7 1/2 pounds??? My mom comes out, talks to me rationally and tries to explain that no one meant to hurt my feelings...then she proceeds to pick up the kielbasa and pick off the blades of grass and dirt that are stuck to it and says to me, "Let's just go make dinner."

Then I woke up.

Moral of the story: If Chris and Christy don't want kielbasa sausage thrown in their yard, I'd better get a call when my nephew is born!!!

The Drags

Today my Father in Law {Buzz) got myself and my brother in law Chris tickets to go see the NHRA Hot Rod drag racing at SIR. I must say it was awesome. It was so freakin loud and fast. We got to see the cars go 330 mph. It was really a lot of fun. Thanks Dad

Stop Getting So Big!!!

She's rolling over, scooting around, crawling over her boppy and trying to sit up all by herself!

I just want her to stop growing so much...just for a while so she can stay my little baby longer! Is that too much for a mother to ask??? :)

Todd's So Old!!

We went to Todd's 10-year high school reunion this weekend...he's so OLD!! I mean, he's almost 29, which is almost 30, which means over the hill...he's going to be checking the 30-45 box on the church welcome card soon, so if you think about it he's basically 45!!

Amazing how quickly we age... :)

Please pray for my Grandma...

For those of you who don't know about all of the medical issues my grandma has had lately, here's the "short" version:

*In October 2006, she had what was to be a routine hysterectomy and there were complications in the surgery. Her incision didn't heal correctly, so the doctors and wound care nurses have been working really hard to get it to heal.

*Since some of the complications have been in her digestive tract, she's had a PIC line (feeding tube) in since the previous surgery. She has been able to eat off and on since, but on Wednesday she was taken by ambulance to the hospital with a fever of 104 due to an infection in her PIC line. They've had her there since.

*There's been a mysterious fluid in her abdomen that the doctors have tried many times to identify and take care of, but as of yesterday the fluid was still gathering and possibly causing inflamation in her liver.

*My poor grandma has spent almost all of the last two months in the hospital. She hates to be there (who doesn't) and it just doesn't do good things for her mind and soul to be there. She just wants to be home...and I don't blame her :(

*My 82-year old grandpa has been her primary caregiver since all of this happened in October...he's such a faithful husband and loves my grandma more than I think we'll ever know, but it's taking its toll on him as well...he just wants his wife to be well...

*My grandma has been battling diabetes for many years, and it's been even more difficult to control since she's been on and off the PIC line...she has dangerous sugar highs and lows all the time, which only contribute to the difficulty her body is having healing.

We are just asking God for a miraculous healing...we are thankful to all of the medical professionals that are trying their best to take good care of her, but we know that her recovery does not rest in the hands of the doctors.

Thank you all in advance for your prayers on her behalf.

So Hot...

Days like today are the reason God created basements!! Our upstairs thermostat is reading 80 degrees!!!! The basement is MUCH cooler, so we've moved down here for the evening...and might even sleep down here! :) Geeze...what are we gonna do tomorrow when it's 97???

Drink lots of water, everyone, and maybe eat a popsicle or two...

My first swim!!

My cousin and I went swimming at my grandma and grandpa Yost's house yesterday! It was really fun!! Maybe my mom will take me for swimming lessons...

P.S. For those of you who are concerned, my dad IS wearing swim trunks...they're just a little on the short side... :)

Such a Fun Sunday!!

First, I played with my toys...I like the new book my mom got me...it has stuff on it that I can chew on!!

Then I had a barbecue with my uncle Chris, aunt Christy, Nana, Papa, Greg, Peggy and Mom & Dad! It was fun...and my uncle Chris even fed me a bottle...he did a good job...he'll be a good dad for my cousin! THEN, I found my feet! My mom better be really good at keeping them clean, because I like to chew on them...Yum... :)
Then more playing with my toys...I had so much fun with my bug...it's my favorite... :)

AND THEN, I had rice cereal for the very first time! My mom and dad taped it, so soon we'll post it for all to see...let's just say I got more on myself than in my mouth, but it was fun...I really like chewing on my spoon!

Well, that's all for now...I'm waiting for my cousin Gabby and auntie Lisa to come visit tomorrow! They're staying at our house for a whole week!! :)
