Hard Day

Isaac is gone. And Sam still doesn't like to sleep. Noah is crazy, cute crazy though(well, peeing his bed isn't cute:)). And Morgan, she had a rough one today.

Once everyone goes to sleep, I finally sit down & the emotions take over. This was the 2nd time in 2 months I have called an ambulance for Morgan. There is nothing like being on the phone with the 911 operator while she is asking you if you know CPR & she tells you that paramedics are on their way. I do know CPR, but do I know it well enough to give my child?

Morgan's seizures have been getting worse. Super scary worse. The last 2 times we couldn't get them to stop. They lasted(well, which seems like forever) but at least 10-15 minutes, maybe more. When you're in the middle of it, you lose all concept of time. I give her the medicine to stop it today & nothing. Grand Mal Seizure! She gets to the point of you wondering if she is going to ever breathe again. Poor, sweet girl.

Noah, on the other hand. Got to ask a Police Officer all about his belt & take him in the toy room to play cars & then I heard him run down the hall as he said "Let's go to my room! Let's play choo-choos!" And the big gentlemen kindly obliged while he was holding Sam, who was just in a shirt & diaper:).

A BIG THANK YOU to our Orem Fire Department, Paramedics & Police Officers today. They are seriously wonderful.

And thank you to our friends & family that are always so willing to help. Thank you for watching the boys for a few hours today so me & Mo could snuggle & take a nap.

I hope & pray that Morgan will rest well tonight, at home. And that they are over. Please keep our sweet girl in your thoughts & prayers. Love to all.

7 Month Stats

So I took Sam in yesterday & he got 2 flu shots & 3 or 4 other ones & that oral one too. Let's just say he didn't sleep much last night & I'm one tired Mama who SHOULD be in bed:).

But here they are:
WEIGHT 20 LBS 2 OZ (75%)
HEIGHT 28 & 3/4 (come on, just say he's 29:))(90 something)
HEAD (?) (70%)

My baby boy is getting big fast. He sure is a cute little fella:). Who would really be happy if he was mobile, but he has a Mama for that & she gives lots & cuddles & kisses:).

June 12, 2010

Well, I signed up for my 1st HALF MARATHON.
June 12, 2010

I am so nervous & I can't wait! That competitive side in me can't wait to see what this almost 30 year old body of mine can do! I can't wait to see how training goes & to hopefully see how my body changes from all the working out!

Wish me LUCK :)!
Any of you big runners out there have any tips?:)
And any of you want to join me??:)

Photo Session #2

These were some shots I took trying to get Christmas card pictures the 2nd time. Kids are so hard to take pictures of....well at least all of them together. They are still absolutely adorable. Taken after church on Sunday after church in the middle of December.

Sam naked because he peed through his outfit:)
Happiest when he's naked:).
Noah telling me he doesn't want to take anymore pictures.
But boy, he looks like a total stud! So handsome!
Miss Morgan being her cute self.
This was her cooperating.

There's always someone giving me a squint.
This one's pretty good:)

3 Kiddos Cooperating for Pics...HA!

This was the 3rd attempt for family pictures for our walls & for Christmas cards. There are some super cute & funny shots. These were taken on December 17, 2009.


This is the real reason that I have dropped off the face of the planet.
Sam is a grumpy goose. A cute grumpy goose nonetheless.

Princess Morgan being cute.

Noah loving the sweet car.
Finally something this little boy likes that has to do
with taking his picture:).
Sam is such a handsome boy.
His little skin is so kissable:)
The many challenges & faces of taking pictures of THREE children...
Not at all bad.

Morgan giving her squinting face.

Noah sticking the candy cane in his ear.
He's so amused.

Noah sad, Morgan's thinking it's funny.

Noah happy, Morgan not so happy.

Let's be honest, the faces speak for themselves.
Some super cute family shots though.

Too bad you can't put all the smiles on the kids together in one picture:)
Thank you Fullmer's for being so wonderful with our children!

You Might Ask....Where Have I Been??:)!!

Right after the last post, our family got strep throat.

Noah got it the worst. This is him on the couch the day after we tried to get family pictures for Christmas, our 1st attempt. He's totally passed out on the couch, which is unheard of for this little boy that has no idea how to sit still. He had to get the antibiotic shot & had his glands so swollen we had to keep checking to make sure they didn't get hard & absessed. Then we all got horrible colds. So that was about 3-4 weeks of our life. Needless to say, we did not get those family pics.
