This post is really just the random thoughts blogging around in my head.

Summer is in full swing and just as anytime we are hit with no real schedule, our family has migrated to a swing shift. We stay up late and sleep in. I love Summer! I love that we can just be. We don't have anywhere to be or anything to do on some days. We do have several appointments etc scheduled this summer so not every day will be a lazy summer day. I am going to enjoy it while it is here though.

There have been some exciting things happening around here. First of all Bekah gave herself a shot last night! When it was time for Lantus, she wanted to hold the syringe. I suggested that she give herself the shot. she decided to try it. She sat on Jason's lap and I held her skin on her thigh and after a few trial runs she decided to go for it. I am so proud of my brave girl!

Secondly, David is talking in sentences. First one was a couple of days ago "MY Daddy"as he was hugging Jason's knee. The next one was yesterday "I want candy" as he spied Megan and her BFF indulging in some Whoppers and tonight "I love you" to me. He is growing way too fast! I am trying to take it all in as I feel like I blinked and the other kids' baby days were gone. I love when kids start communicating because you can now get a glimpse of what has been going on inside their head.

Bekah qualified for the Littlest Heroes Project. We have selected our photographer and now just need to get a date scheduled. I'm trying to decide if this is an occasion that warrants a new outfit. My kids (esp the younger 2) live in hand me downs and second hand store finds. It's one way we cut corners so I can be home with the kids. Every now and then for a special occasion I will go buy something new if we have money in the budget. I'm thinking her Easter dress that her grandparents bought her would do just fine although, I do love the new poppy line they have at Gymboree. Decisions. decisions...

The next thing is not as good. Yesterday, the kids' pediatrician called. She was informing me that we needed to take Megan to see a pediatric GI doctor. I had taken Megan in about 6 weeks ago because she had been having some tummy trouble. The doctor decided to do a full blood work up and even threw in an A1C to humor me. All of the numbers came back great except for her liver was slightly elevated. At that time the doc thought it could just be a virus so retest in a few weeks. We went in last week to have to blood work redone and yesterday I got the call. It was Megan's birthday so I down played it. Tonight though, as I sit here in a quiet room, I have to admit that I am a bit nervous. Nervous about what diagnosis we will get and can I handle that and all of the other stuff that I have on my plate right now. I know that God is in control and that He has a good plan.


  1. Yay for Becka giving her own shot!! That's a big deal. AND yay for the Littlest Heroes Project. I just received the email from the Photographer this morning... so exciting ;)

    I am sure Megan will be just fine :) Keep up the faith and know that you ARE able to handle whatever is laid before you. We will be thinking of you guys... lots of prayers.

    Keep us posted.

  2. Test and waiting...they are acid to the soul. I'm sorry you have more on your plate to worry about, and pray that all is well.

    Some great milstones! I'm so happy for you too!

  3. First....I'm so glad you're getting things checked out with Megan. If there is a problem, you want to find out sooner than later. I'll be praying for you both.

    Second.....Woo Hoo, Bekah!!! You totally ROCK! I'm so proud of you for being such a brave young lady. God sure did give you the gift of courage and you are making Him so proud of you too! ((Hugs!!))

  4. Yea Bekah! What a brave little girl! You rock!

    Please keep us updated on Megan - - - will be thinking about you!


    Nate has started talking up a storm too! It is so fun listening to his sweet little conversations. I know just what you mean!!

  5. Yay Bekah! That is one tough little cookie!

    Good luck with Megan. I hate waiting to see doctors when you don't know what's going on! I hope they will get you in soon and figure things out.
