The Mommy Do

MK got a haircut from Aunt Sisi today. She wanted her hair to look like Mommy's. Turned out pretty cute! Looks so much older, now if she'll just act more mature;) She's gearing up for preschool. Rumor has it we are moving into our new house on Tuesday. Will keep you up to date on when we are officially not homeless!

We are busy loading all of our belongings for our big move, AGAIN! Can't wait to post that we are all settled in our new home. I know MK is so excited to get into her new room and I think A is just so confused. Poor thing has been moved around for her whole life!

From Visiting Old Friends to IVs

We went to visit my good friend Julie and her kiddos this week in Houston. We have had it planned for months. So I got my car loaded with all of our necessary items. Hubby headed to the PGA tourney in Tulsa and was hanging out with Tiger Woods:)

Well, we enjoyed our first night of our visit. Thursday morning MK woke up throwing up!! YUCK. So after several episodes we packed the car up again, and hit the road back to Bryan. After even more episodes at home I called the Dr. who told us to come in for a shot. So off we go. Once there it was determined that she needed to be admitted to the hospital. (Remember, my hubby is out of town!) Luckily my good friends The Wests came to my rescue and took A to their house until family was able to come and get her. Hubby left the tourney a day early and headed back to see MK in the hospital. We stayed overnight hooked up to IV pumping her with fluids and antibiotics. Friday afternoon we came home with a little girl who is back to normal. (Only seems to want grilled cheese.) Thank goodness she's better. I hate seeing her so sick! She was a trooper patient. Using great manners with the nurses and doctors. She did not like being stuck all the time. "No more bloodwork!" she said!

Is this legal?

I've resorted to putting my kids in a cage! Me and the fam trucked it to Toys R Us yesterday in search of a contraption to keep my 8 month old in a confined space. Like I have said before she crawls to anything and everything she shouldn't. Cords are her favorite and the cable box. With all the packing in my near future I need somewhere to put her where I know she will be safe. She likes the cage for now but I'm waiting for the newness to wear off.

This weekend I will begin to prepare for my departure from Beaver Pond. Most of you have heard me speak of my beloved rental house, few of you have seen it in person. There's a reason for that! While I am extremely grateful that the Lord has provided us with shelter for the past 3 months, I will be sooooooo glad to leave this place.

Here are things I will NOT miss about Beaver Pond:

  • The fact that many many college guys have called BP their home so it creeps me out to imagine what has gone on inside these walls
  • I will now be able to go without my flip flops at all times. I have yet to walk the floors of BP barefoot.
  • The one burner on the stove that works properly.
  • The water that is either HOT or COLD!
  • The guy next door who mows his yard right by my window at 7 am the morning after I am done with boot camp!!:(
  • The copperhead snakes who inhabit our backyard.
  • The fact that everytime A or MK crawls across the floor I cringe.
  • The fact that no matter how hard I scrub or clean BP is never clean.
Ok, enough complaining. Like I said BP has been a roof on our heads and a place for us to live that is close to Traditions where hubby works and our new house is unerconstruction. It has been a blessing.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Tiny Dancer

Today MK finished her Cinderella's Circle Dance Camp. They had a performance for all of the parents. She did so good. They had their hair and makeup done for their big debut. She was so hilarious. They had all the girls lined up with the older (5yr.olds) front and center. MK was on the front row at the end. I think they put the "distractors" on the end. She actually did a few hip shakes and dance moves during the first go round. The 2nd time she did her own thing. She kind of turned into a hip-hop ballerina. All the moms around me were asking if I had taught her those moves! Don't know where they came from, but we were very proud of our tiny dancer and her first ever performance!

Growing Up

Well, A has decided to go and grow up on me! She took off crawling last week and is on the move now! She is totally different than MK, she goes straight for cords, outlets and all things she shouldn't. Today during her nap I noticed on the video monitor something I had never seen before. It was moving all around. I go into her room and she has the camera and is moving it all around and chewing on it. Then she proceeds to stand up in her crib! Time to lower the crib. Gosh, she's growing way too fast:(
