I can't believe it's been a year already

Oh my sweet little boy! Happy 1 year birthday. It just doesn't even seem like it has been a year already. You are such a joy to our family. As you have neared 1 we have seen the boy in you come out more and more. Your sisters and mom and dad didn't teach you that cars drive, make noise, and crash yet you seem to do all those things with them. It's definately a change for us from foofy to loud and aggressive, we love it.

Already getting beat up and scratches all over you, although your sisters play a big part in that. You were so tiny and sweet I remember bringing you home and being so scared you were so little and had to have the glow worm light on you for 8 days because of jaundice. That was no fun, I couldn't snuggle up as close with you with the machine on luckily you were a sweet and quiet baby that didn't require a whole lot.

You are close to walking but not quite ready, you have learned to hit your sisters and fight back when you know you are taking a beating. You have learned to voice your opinion and know how to get us to respond to you. You crawl up and down the stairs all day long and think you are so big.
Your so quiet, and have a very serious side to you. It's very hard to get you to laugh but you love to smile. Your eyes light up and you can even raise your right eye brow, it drives your dad crazy. You get so excited to see your dad when he gets home and you crawl super fast with your head down and barrell right into him, you are definately all boy and we are so glad you are a part of our family. I love you.

More doctor visits

Sorry my blog lately has consisted of bad sick posts, but hey it's that time of year. Last night we took Lucy to the ER she has some weird rash all over her face. Come to find out it's called the fifth disease, commonly known as the "slapped cheek syndrome". My kids have crazy things that they come down with. It is highly contaigious and there is no cure, it could last up to 5 weeks, it's kinda cute in a sick way she has big chubby cheeks and now they are bright red. This morning Talmadge as a patch of red on his cheek so we will see. Scott and Zoie went to the Doctor today they still aren't feeling better. Come to find out they both has strep throat, and Scott on top of that has a sinus infection and another virus she isn't sure about that is causing him to have severe hot and cold sweats. Awesome huh. I agree with some of you I think Heavenly Father watches out for mothers so they can take care of the family when everyone is ill. Keep your fingers crossed Lucy and Talmadge don't end up with strep, or myself for that matter. With Thanksgiving coming I'm so greatful for my family and for health and strength. I find in times of sickness I really am greatful for good health most of the time.

When it rains it pours

Well my poor family after the doctors appt. we went to Costco to get Talmadge's antibiotics. Zoie had the urge to throw up right in the entrance of Costco. Nice huh, she said look mommy they are cleaning it for me. With children you just can't have too many embarrassing moments. That same night Lucy was up at 11pm throwing up all over as well and it continued on throughout the night. At about 5am Scott was up hanging on to the porcelain throne as well, what a night. Everyone is still a little under the weather, meaning extremely cranky, and high temperatures. 24 hours of antibiotics and I have a different baby at my house, poor guy. Thank goodness mom has stayed healthily throughout it all to make sure the house hold is taken care of. Hopefully I won't get a turn.

Sick Baby

And so it begins. Just when you get the doctor bill payed off from last winter, in time to rack that one back up. Poor Talmadge well all my kids they have been doomed with ear infections forrrreeevvvveeeerrrrr. We just got back from the Doctors today to find out he has a double ear infection with his left ear on the verge of bursting, Lucy has a sore throat, and Zoie is saying her ear hurts. Unfortunately my baby gets sick and it goes straight to his lungs he has the cursed asthma. This is him being pinned down to enhale his medicne on his machine for 3-5 minutes. When we are through he is ticked off and his nose is bright red from keeping the mask on. I hate winters here in Oregon. It seems we are always sick and we seem to catch it all. Poor me Huh, that sounds pathetic I'm sure all you mothers out there have to endure the same thing all winter longa s well.

Strawberry Shortcake

This is a really cute quiz, try it. I tried guessing on Scott and chose wrong (Chocolate cake with chocolate icing), he picked ice cream and it doesn't really go with his personality ........guess I'm still working on trying to figure him out. :)

If all of the eight desserts listed below were sitting in front of you, which would you choose sorry, you can only pick one! Here are your choices:

1. Angel Food Cake
2. Brownies
3. Lemon Meringue Pie
4. Vanilla Cake with Chocolate Icing
5. Strawberry Short Cake

8. Carrot Cake

Now that you have made your choice, this is what the researchers say about you...

Little Late----Halloween

Well as you can tell Lucy was a tiger girl, Zoie was and "evil" witch that evil part had to be in the description as far as she was concerned, and Talmadge according to Zoie was a Cheeto. He was really a little tiger but he looked big and orange like a cheeto. We had a good time we went to the chuch and did the trunk or treat and ended up with way too much candy. It's always a good time to do that. The kids also got to dress up for Lucy's school and that same day Zoie was able to dress up for her dance class, Halloween what a weird Holiday it is anyway. Who came up with the idea of dressing up and going out to get candy???????
