3 Sickies

Paul caught what Annie had on Sunday, and I came down with it yesterday! First time I've had a fever in over 7 years! I felt like death yesterday-full body aches and I was dizzy when I stood. Today I still feel bad but not as bad as yesterday. Annie has been taking care of me- she'll feel my head and ask if I have a fever. :) She's too sweet!

Here is a pic from a few weeks ago where she was holding me while sleeping...I got up and she stayed in position. :) I love my little lovey! She makes everything better! :)

Baby Bottle CRACK

Nana Nell got Annie a baby bottle pop for Christmas, (in her stocking). I think she liked it...

The Power of Photoshop

In July 2010, we were the parents to our sons, "Woody and Buzz," and Annie was in foster care.

I photoshopped pics of the kiddos from July 2010 together to see what our family would have been like had we not lost the boys. :)

Still cant show their faces, though you get the point. :) I have it without the hearts of course and it makes me oh so happy. :)

Sibling Splash Time

Once in awhile I'll let Annie take a bath in my big bathtub, and I'll join her. She loves it! Jersey on the other hand is terribly jealous of our time. He'll jump up on the bathtub ledge and sit and whimper.

So yesterday, Annie requested that Jersey join us. So I finally broke down and allowed it. Once he got in, he questioned his decision. He didn't hate it, but he didn't love it either. We'll see if he'll still beg to join us next time! Lol

Sick Baby and Losing Weight

Lame title. Whateves.

Sick Baby:

Annie was sick yesterday for the first time ever! Yes she's had 7 hospitalizations and 5 surgeries, (with me...more before she came to us), but this was the first tone get immune system was compromised. She had a little chest congestion and a 101 fever. Her Dr was closed so I had to take her to the er, (with her issues, you don't play when it comes to a fever so waiting til today was not an option).

She had a cold! lol Pretty embarrassing being at the er for a cold, but the Dr said I did the right thing bringing her. I had given her Advil which was making her feel pretty good...had she been sick looking he would tapped her shunt just in case.

Losing Weight:

I've always heard starving yourself will keep you from losing weight. Never gave it much thought. Well, I've never had the biggest appetite and go without a meal sometimes. I was thinking that's a win win because it will help me lose weight. Well, I haven't lost another pound this month-I lost 10 last month! What?! I know it may have something to do with my hormones, but I wondered if it had something to do with my "starving" myself, (not like anorexia, I promise!). Sure enough, I ate a lot yesterday, (well, every meal and snacks lol. and actually we splurged and got pizza- crummy weather and a sick baby... and pizza is my fav and I haven't had pizza since December so it was a treat). Anyway, I expected to be up on the scale a bit this morning but I was actually down! I think my body was like, "yes! I can work properly now with burning all this." Needless to say, I've learned my lesson and will be eating all of my allotted calories with 3 meals/3 snacks a day.

Funny side:

I made an appointment today for myself to deal with all my issues I've mentioned on here, (hormones namely). I told the nurse my name and she goes, "I'm gonna need you to spell that last name." lol of one attempts to spell it and few attempt to pronounce it, (keier- like fire, le- like lee, ber- like brrr it's cold in here... so kire-lee-brr).

Anyway, I spell it and she says, "and Tricia first name? Well that's an easy one, T R I S H A." "Well, it's actually C I A." "Of course it is! It couldn't be the easy one!" Lol I love my double hard name!

Here are pics of Annie from her September surgery.
