The last week was way too busy. Sami had her 12 month appt. she weighs 19lbs 4oz and is 29.5 inches long and doing great!

Then on Saturday Sami started what they called "breath-holding spells" which i think is a load of rubbish! She cries, holds her breath and then her eyes roll back her face turns blue and she passes out! The ER doc told Charlie that this was a phase and she'd grow out of it, they didn't look at anything other than what a ped would at a well check... wouldn't you think they'd be more concerned? Or want to check her little noggin, nope they didn't!
She did it 3 times this weekend and it sucked!
And then I had to sit down with Mady and tell her that her Nana went to heaven, and let me tell you, explaining that to a 3 year old is hard. I told my mom that I quit lol! She seemed to take it okay, I just told her that next time she went to Buddy's she wouldn't see Nana because she wouldn't be there anymore and that she went to live with Jesus. And leave to Mady to ask me if it was the baby Jesus... I told her yes and baby Jesus really needed a Nana and that Mady had so many ppl that love her and that He saw how much Nana loved Mady that she would make Him a great Nana. She liked the idea that Nana got to help take care of Jesus, but at 3 how else can it be put into easy words lol... hopefully it'll be a long time (a really really long time) before I have to do that again.

Long week

It's been a long kind of endless week! I'm so glad that it's Saturday but not glad that it's almost over! We ordered new furniture, we should be getting it about mid-week! I'll post pics when I can...
I hurt my new car, I made it all the way home from work on awful roads and then I run into a big pile of snow coming into my driveway... it sucked!
The girls are great, Sami is walking now and I can't believe that she'll be a year old in 7 days, I'm so not ready for that... will have lots of pics to post on Sunday I'm sure

I feel like such a dummy today! And I've had something happen recently that makes me really want to get back into praying more often and maybe finding a new church to attend! Yesterday I fell down our stairs, there are 13 of them and I think I walked down 2 of them before I fell! Someone was definitely on my shoulder! It was really weird.... We were heading down for the day and Charlie asked me if I had socks for Mady, I didn't so had to go back and get them, for her and me. They had just made it downstairs when I was coming down, I started down and still have no idea what happened! I don't know if I missed a step or slid on a worn spot of carpet or what but I was walking and the next thing a know I'm sliding down, bouncing on each step, I end up going down sideways so when I landed, it was on my left hip! It hurt but I'm okay, bruised and sore but I don't think anything is broken! But when I think about how much worse it could be, OH MY! What if I had one of the girls or what if Charlie and the girls were still on the stairs! It's almost like I forgot the socks on purpose so that Charlie and the girls could make it safe! I don't know, it's just scary! I will probably post pictures tomorrow

The weekend, only a little late

I hate winter and I hate cold! But with kids playing in the snow is almost inevitable! We went sledding on Sunday but those pics will come in another post

Mantha didn't like having to stay inside while daddy and Mady worked on our sidewalks

And daddy and Mady shoveling, well daddy is using a shovel... Mady has a sweeper attachment, it fit perfectly lol

Christmas '08

Christmas in our house was busy busy! December in our house was busy! We finally made an appt for Mady's 3 year pictures and it's been almost 2 months since her birthday! So we're cheating and doing both girls at once, Mad for 3 and Sami for 1! The gils had lots of fun, Mady was really into it this year... Sami liked the paper.

It's definitely getting easier to get the girls together for pictures, but one is always looking the other way!

And this is the shot I got when Mady saw that Santa had brought the presents

Daddy bringing Samantha down, you gotta love the hair!
