Disney Princess

I still haven't downloaded the pictures from our weekend in Payson, but here is something I got from a friends blog.

You Are Snow White!

Pure and trusting. You are a gentle soul who can get along with just about anyone. Everyone you meet instantly falls in love with you. How can they resist? You have a pure, lovable nature that's irresistable. Just don't trust everyone who comes across your path.

Which Disney Princess Are You?

Apparently I am pure and trusting...bla bla bla, but I don't trust everyone who comes across my path?? I'm not so sure about the rest of it either, maybe I messed up and need to take it again!

Back at work

Lacy will be 6 weeks old tomorrow, and I'm up to 4 days at work this week. As long as I stay busy it's OK, but when there's not much to do I start feeling like I should get home to the kids instead of being here "wasting time". I'm very lucky to have my mom and mother-in-law to help take care of the kids while I'm working though, because if I didn't there's no way I would be able to work at all! All 3 kids go to my mom's twice a week, and Talon & Hailey go to Leah's (a lady in Joe's parents neighborhood) the other days. Since I've been back at work Charlotte has been taking Lacy on those days so that she doesn't get clobbered by all of the other kids at Leah's house. =) I wish I would have downloaded the pictures from my camera last night, but by the time I got home from swim lessons, unloaded the car, washed the dishes, gave Lacy a bath and started some laundry I was exhausted! Hopefully I can talk Joe into going to Payson this weekend for a little bit of R&R with just us and the kids.
I have my 6 week follow up tomorrow and I'm so excited that I'm finally going to get to swim again! Yeah!!

Mother's Day

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day! Talon and Hailey gave me a card that they signed themselves, and Lacy gave me a card that Joe had stamped her hand and foot on. It was really cute. Joe gave me flowers and a card, and offered to let me pick out a Mother's ring. We think we are done having kids now, so it's pretty safe to go ahead and get one. We spent most of the day at my Uncle Martin & Cheryl's house, where the men do all the cooking and clean up for all the mom's. Then, we went to Joe's parent's house for Sunday dinner. It was a pretty good day. Here is a picture we took while we were at Uncle Martin's house.
I know the picture on our main page doesn't have Lacy in it, but I'm not ready to replace it with this one...maybe we'll go get some professional pictures taken if I can lose about 20 pounds. =) This picture was the best one out of about 15 we tried that day...arghh! Those kids sure are hard to get to sit still and smile.

I wanted to share my cousins "labor story" because I thought it was sooo crazy! This is Brynn's story (the one I had lunch with the other day). She was in the hospital bed and had already gotten her epidural, so she was completely numb. She was getting uncomfortable and pulled herself up higher in bed, and the nurse came in and said that they lost the fetal monitor connection and she was going to try to re-adjust it to find it again. Well, the nurse couldn't find the heart beat, so she told Brynn that she would check her first and then go get the doctor. When the nurse picked up the sheet, she said "the baby is here". Apparently, when she pulled herself up in bed the baby's head came out!! So, the nurse took the baby's head in her hand and the rest of her slid out. Isn't that the craziest thing you've ever heard? She was over 8 lbs too!

Big Day

Today was a big day. Talon had a Dr. appt at 9:00 this morning and got four shots! He was so brave and didn't cry while the nurses did the first two. The second shots were the stingers though and he cried a little bit for daddy. On the way home I told him that I was so proud of him for being so brave and he told me that he really wasn't because he cried, but I told him that it was OK to cry a little bit because it hurt a little bit and he agreed.
The doctor tested Lacy's stool again and there wasn't any blood!! Hooray, that's the first time it's ever been clear. She is also up to 8lbs 8oz now. I guess the crushed up 5 dollar bills they put in this formula must be working. =) She is still spitting up quite a bit, but he didn't seem too concerned about it since she gained almost an entire pound in a week. He also said that the crying should be much better in another week or so, once the old stuff is completely out of her system. Hopefully she starts feeling even better real soon.We went to lunch with my cousin, who had her baby two days after Lacy was born. Here are all the girls who had babies recently that were at lunch with us.
Then, tonight Hailey passed another level in her swim class. Congratulations Hailey!

The end of another season...

Our softball season ended 3 days earlier than I would have liked. We lost in the semi-finals on Thursday night. It was a heck of a game though. We were down 2-4 in the bottom of the 7th with one out and runners on 2nd & 3rd. Kelsey Rodriguez was up to bat, who has a batting average in the 700's, and she hit a line drive that almost made it over the 2nd baseman's head to tie the game, but she caught it and threw it to 2nd for a double play. :-( What a bummer! The girls had a great season though, and got first place in their region even though it was the school's first year in 4A. I'm very proud of them, even though it was very disappointing to lose last night.
Lacy is doing OK. She's not keeping down as much of the new formula as I hoped she would, but she seems to be doing a little bit better. If nothing else at least the new formula doesn't stain her clothes when she spits up on them. A friend of mine said that she thinks Lacy has already developed an eating disorder because we call our dog "fat dog" and ask Hailey were her cellulite is all the time. We were joking around and said that Lacy must be saying to herself, "man if I get into those 3-6 month clothes I'll just die!" Her and Talon are both going to the Dr. on Monday, so I'll have another update on her then.

Another weigh in...

I took Lacy back to the doctor for what has turned out to be a weekly weigh in on Monday. She was down one ounce to 7lbs 11 oz. She will be four weeks old on Wednesday and only weighs two ounces more than when she was born. =( The good news is that her new formula was delivered today, and she seems to like it. Although she spit up a bunch this afternoon (Grandma Dairman said she had to change Lacy once, and her shirt twice while she had her for 3 1/2 hrs this afternoon), she just had a full four ounce bottle and only spit up about 2 tsp. of it. YEAH! I really hope this new formula gets her feeling better. She'll go back to the Dr. on Monday to get weighed again.

Softball Party

We had the first round of state today at 1:30 this afternoon and we won 10-0. Then, after the game we had the whole softball team and their families over today for a swim party and barbecue. I didn't take any pictures because I was too busy to remember to, but I think everyone had fun. We borrowed Jono's (Joe's brother) Rock Band and Wii, so those high school kids would have something fun to do in our all kid house. =) They all signed up to bring something, so all we had to do was the meat and buns. Then, they cleaned up EVERYTHING before they left. All the way down to taking down the tables and chairs...that was great! We play the next round at 6:00 on Tuesday at Rose Mofford. The state tournament is single elimination, so only if we win we'll play Tuesday at 6:30, then Saturday at 6:00. I can't believe the season is only one more week! It seemed to fly by this year...probably because I missed a couple of weeks when I had the Lacy. Joe is so great to do all he does so that I can continue to coach. We figured it out the other day and my first year coaching was in 1998, so this is my 10th year!! I remember my first couple of years the umpires would come in the dugout to check the bats and helmets before the game, and would tell me to take out my earrings (they thought I was on the team), and now they ask me if I have a kid on the team! I must have changed a lot in the past 10 years...I've gone from looking like I could be on the team to looking like I could have a kid on it. Jeesh!! Believe it or not, Joe has been there since the first year and has made it to almost every game. He is so supportive to put up with all he does for 3 1/2 months while I work from 6am-3pm and then go out to the field until 6:30 everyday. I DEFINITELY could not do it without his support.
