I do realize it has been a LONG time since my last post, but it is safe to say that it has taken me that long to get used to two children, realize I'm fat and need to stop eating, and playing both mommy and daddy is KILLING ME!
but, here I am blogging away and going to stick with it.
Update on my chitin's:
Rowdy- IS ALMOST 3!!!! Please just slit my wrists now, this is way hard to process. The kid is brilliant and prospering daily with knowledge. He is even teaching me. He starts preschool, with about 3 of his other friends, at the end of August and it is just going to break my heart to leave him with someone other than me, my mother, and my few trusted friends. As my friend Chelsea calls it, I'm going to need a Mental Health Day! Other than that, He is still about 31 lbs and 34 in. Short and Skinny. He has had a pretty good adjustment to his sister, we only have the occasional once every two weeks jealous battle which only lasts an hour or so and then he moves on to the next interesting thing.
Some of his favorite toys right now are, Hot Wheels (I love this cause they are only 1.00), Toy Story Toys; especially Woody, and playing outside with his outdoor toys.
He is STILL ADDICTED to milk, which I don't find bad at all cause he is building strong bones and he is really starting to come into his own with food...He hates PIZZA which I know is weird but hey is knows what he wants and he don't take anything else for an answer. He is his own individual and I hate every minute of it.
Also I just want to add, he is not allowed to date until he is 25, no girls are to even look in his directions or I will throw daggers at their faces :)
Emery- well well well. This girl has HIGH MAINTENANCE and she knows it, I know it, and everyone around her is bound to know it someday! Her and I struggled back and forth for about 2 1/2 months on her being colicy until we had a routine down pat. She struggles to put weight on and is probably as advanced as a 4 month old vs her now being almost 6 months but...we are making progress! She is in 3 months clothes and a size 2 diaper (this just happened today) and about 13 lbs 10oz and 24 in long. Another Short and Skinny kid. She eats about 6 first food containers of baby food a DAY and has a rice cereal bottle at bed time every night. She finally started to sleep flat in a bed (with no blankets MOM) and as far as her PFO (Patent Foramen Ovale) which is just a fancy term for a hole in her heart, I am sad to report it is still there. She goes back to the Cardiologist's office down at the Children's Heart Center at the end of this month to check on the progress and if the hole is still there then we will have to probably open her up and fix her...which sucks seeing your 6month having heart surgery but if it heals her, its worth it. She really suffers no problems from it, only recently has her chest started to cave when she crys excessively but other than that she seems great. The hole is not HEREDITARY, I want to make the very clear...it has nothing to do with my family history or even lack there of i should say, the hold evolved only because she was 4 weeks early, just like how she has a deviated septum, due to being early too. Which just causes her to have a stuffy nose in one nostril all the time.
So as far as I go. Im fat and happy. Its just that simple. lol :)
As of tomorrow I start Weight Watchers point counting and I went to Sam's Club and Smith's today and spent about 210.00 on food that will help me accomplish my goals. I have to be strict and buckle down and just do it, there is no other way. I fully intend to be as healthy as possible going into nursing school, which by the way starts in 7 weeks 6 days
So that is how much of a life I have left...wish me luck talk to you soon
