Harlem Globetrotters!

I just found out that a friend of mine just won us 4 tickets to see the Harlem Globetrotters next Tuesday! I am so excited! Aidan has wanted to go see them every time they have come in town, but we just haven't been able to...always bad timing... :( Anyway, now we get to go this year as a family of 4 and I could not be more excited! I can't wait to surprise Aidan with the tickets! Thank you Charla!!!

2 Sick Boys :(

Well, I have had 2 sick boys this week. Monday, I had to go pick Aidan up from school around 10:00 am because he had gotten sick. He stayed home Tuesday also because he still wasn't feeling great and I wanted to give him a good 24 hrs before sending him back. So off he went this morning...of course due to the bad weather last night, school didn't start till 10:00 am...which was good as it gave him some extra sleeping time! He seemed good to go this morning!

As for Ryan, he woke up last night at about 12:15 am just crying and crying. We put him in bed with us thinking maybe he had had a bad dream or something. He was just so fussy, and seemed like he had some gas. So I rubbed his tummy and held him and was finally able to get him back to sleep. Well...not for about 4:00 this morning, he just sat straight up in our bed and just started vomiting everywhere! It was awful! It was all over him, me, and our bed! I scooped him up and ran into the bathroom and stripped him down. I ran some warm water and gave him a quick bath while my wonderful hubby changed our bed linens and put all the dirty stuff in the wash. We got it all cleaned up and got back in bed, this time with some extra towels and a bowl! :) He got sick a few more times over the next couple of hours, but finally was able to get some sleep. I took his temp and it was 101, but didn't give him anything till about 2:oo this afternoon. Sure didn't want him losing his medicine too! I gave him some Pedialite with his Tylenol and he sucked that down so fast! Poor baby! It's almost 4:00 pm now and he seems so much better! I just made him a piece of toast, which he ate about half of, and now he's playing in the floor. I'm hoping we are nearing the end of all this sickness!

Praise God!

Ryan had another visit with the neurologist in Temple today. He didn't have to have a CT scan, just a clinical exam. The Dr. said his skull feels GREAT and it is healing perfectly! PRAISE GOD! He told us that the depressed area has improved tremendously and he should recover completely as his brain continues to grow. He also said that he doesn't need to have any more CT scans, nor does he need to follow up with him again. As long as Ryan's pediatrician continues to monitor him and feels comfortable with his development, then he is cleared from the neurologist! Thank you all for all of your prayers for our sweet baby! God has truly blessed us beyond measure. It was so humbling today to see the look on the Dr.'s face of such confidence and satisfaction with how Ryan has healed. Roy and I both walked out of his office with huge smiles on our faces and such joy in our hearts knowing that Ryan was healthy and needed no further testing. Thank you Lord for blessing us in this way and healing our baby!

I Heart

My new sign FINALLY came in! GEEZ!!! I so copied Miranda's sign that Shelly got her and Jeff for Christmas...thanks for the find y'all! I love everything about it! So, I thought I'd go ahead and post some pics because Kristi was so making fun of me earlier today! Here's to you KK! Oh, and by the way, Ryan apparently believes the sign is his, so he was kinda being a hogger of it!

President Obama

WOW! Strange to be saying that...I thought for sure John McCain was going to be our next president. Although I am disappointed, as a Christian I know that God wants us all to be united and support our president. I will continue to pray for President Obama and show my support for him as our president. I hope God uses him in ways to better our country and bring us all together as one. I feel blessed to live in America and have had the right to choose our next leader. I want a better country for my boys and any future children of our family, and through prayer and faith in God, I believe He will show us the way. God Bless America!

Sleepy Boy...

Last night Roy was working and it was just me and the boys! We were eating supper, me & Aidan on the couch and Ryan in his high chair, and I looked over at Ryan and saw my poor baby was falling asleep! I nudged Aidan so he could look too and we both started cracking up laughing! His head was just getting heavier and heavier and the next thing I knew he was out! That just amazes me how they can just fall sound asleep while eating in their high chair! I know every parent has these same pics to
Bubba thought it was so funny!

What A Difference...

So...I was taking some pics of Ryan in the bath last night and started thinking back to just a few short months ago (which is really almost 2 years ago) at how big he has gotten and how much he has changed. Walk down memory lane with me for just a minute...

Ryan's 1st bath...

Ryan now at 21 mos...

Ryan at 2 mos...

Look! He barely fits on his changing table now!!!

It's hard to believe he will be 2 in March. My how the time passes...
