Aizen's New Hair Cut!!!

Aizen looks like a new boy!!! I buzzed his hair today while doing Daniel's and he sat through it and didn't fuss at all.

I've been wanting him to have a little boy haircut for a long time but just hadn't found any time to sit down and do. And you know toddlers, you can't get them to sit for more than a few seconds. I can see it now.... Aizen running around the house with just a diaper on, mommy chasing him with the clippers, the giggles and laughs, little chops of hair done looking like he had done it himself..... yeah right!!!

I also did it because lately it's been causing me a lot of pain to look at him. He looks SO much like Ruby from the behind and I would burst into tears when I looked at him. I miss my little girl so much and so the hair needed to change. Well here are the before and after. Isn't he handsome??

Aizen ~ TOTAL Adrenaline Junkie

I didn't realize until I was watching the video back that you can't move the video "clockwise" like you can a photo. lol.... so to watch this video just prop your head to the right and it will look all good.

Aizen is my total adrenaline junkie baby. He LOVES to be tossed around and Daniel was doing this with him, by accident at first, but Aizen loved it so much that he kept leaning back for more. Enjoy!!

Melody Is Feeling Better

.... just what the title said. She is still congested from all the fluids in her ears but she is happy and perky. I like having my little girl back. She has gone over 36 hours with no fever and we are continuing with the antibiotics. She goes back to see Dr. Patterson in 2 weeks to make sure her ear infection has cleared up. Thanks to everyone who has been praying for her, I couldn't have gotten through this time without you. Blessings. =)

I Made A Bow Holder & Melody's ER Visit

This stuff happened on Monday, I just realized this post is at 12am on Wednesday. hehe

Melody has been pretty sick since Thursday evening. She had a fever that lasted the weekend (well technically she still has it) and Sunday she starting vomiting. Yesterday, she got really splotchy on her skin and something was very off. She went from vomitting once an hour to ever 20-30 minutes for 3 hours.

So, I took her into the ER with my father in law, Daniel stayed home with Aizen. They had him register her and we went straight to a room. Guess what room we went to?? The room that they resuccitated Ruby in. Boy was that hard, it turned out to be a good thing in the end. I got to look at where everything was and process what might have happened and how they knew where everything was. I was able to control my panic attack. I thought if it is urgent enough for them to get her into this room, then I need to deal with being in the room so she can get the care she needs.

The doctor we had was fantastic with her. Melody has an anxiety disorder and she was Terrified to get an IV. She was Very dehydrated. So, the doctor worked with me on this and she was given a drug to make her really dopey and sleepy. They also used a cream called Emla at my request. It basically numbs the skin so that you don't feel the needle going in.

It took 4 hours to hydrate her and 1200 mL of iv fluid. She was like a different child after being hydrated. She is doing Great today. She still has her fever. She ended up having a double ear infection. =( She played spore, wanted to do homework when she heard it was coming home, drank lots of water, had crackers and rice pudding. Please continue to pray for her. She is still congested and feeling bleh but her spirits are up.


So, yesterday morning while she wanted my company I decided to make her a bow holder for all the bows I have been making lately. THANK YOU MEL!!!! for all the ribbon, it has come in SOOOO handy. So this is what it looks like and Melody helped me pick out all the little buttons and where to put them on the main part of the yellow bow. I can't wait for the alligator clips to arrive in the mail so that I can attach them and when it gets nicer she can wear them.

I used a wooden dowl on the main ribbon with the buttons to make it straight and not floppy and glued on everything else. The heart, flower and butterfly were bought at Michael's awhile back and we jazzed them up. It was a lot of fun to make.
