Excited and Nervous!

So, I guess it's time I can tell you all what i've been up too. Since your all friends. Well I hope you are, and not just stalkers... ;)
I'm not sure i'm ready to let it out there but it's exciting so I have to tell you! I'm finally doing something for ME! I've been wanting to do it for a long, long time (like years) I just didn't want to be "another one". But I really don't care because I LOVE it and have such a passion for it. I'm taking a course in the beginning of Sept and can't wait.

So i'm JUST starting out, so be gentle. ;)
ps: it's still in the works but it's coming.
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
Also go "like" my facebook group page!

Oh also this blog is so messed up. I tried to redo from scratch the other one but accidentally was signed up under THIS ONE. Totally destroyed everything. Sucked. Big Time. So it's coming too.

Back to School!

Kyla is going into Kindergarten!! I decided to change things up a bit and do my own back to school pictures for her this year instead of the boring ones that normally get done. I wanted to do something fun, and I LOVE how these turned out! She didn't want to stop and wanted me to keep taking pictures. She's the the best. 
She also told me she doesn't just want a camaro, she wants "one of those cars where the top is off." I said, "oh those are convertibles". She says, "Ya I want and Camaro and a Convertible."
What 5 year old asks for that?! She also wants a skateboard now and wants to go with Dustin, since he has one.
Love her.

Anyways, here she is! All grown up!

I freakin love her.

Laken and Dad!

Laken is 4 1/2 months old! Insane right?!
She is the best! She is rolling over both ways, reaching and grabbing at toys, "talking", and smiles and laughs all the time. She is too cute and I could squish her all day.

So I took her to my pediatrician last month and she diagnosed her with Sandifer Syndrome. Honestly it's confusing, but it looks like she has mini seizures. It's not fun to watch and freaks me out every time. She can grow out of it, she's on medication for it and she's only had one episode since being on it. That's because I forgot to give her the medication that day. So i'm glad it's helping. One of the symptoms we found is weight loss. So Laken hasn't gained any weight since she was 8 weeks. I took her on Thursday for her 2 month shots and she still weighs 10 lbs! She is longer in length (40th percentile) but her weight and head are in the 2nd and 4th percentile. It's really starting to worry me and i'm tired of the doctors saying it's normal without looking into it.
There are a couple things that i've thought of.

Her poop isn't seedy, and in breastfed babies the seedy stuff is the fat and shows they are getting fat. So i'm wondering if my milk is fatty enough. I've told every doctor and nurse this since she was born and no one seemed too concerned so I wasn't concerned. But now I am!


Her Sandifer Syndrome is keeping her at one weight and won't gain.

or both!

She eats a lot, every 2 hours or so. She is a happy baby and still sleeps through the night and is developing normally. So I feel like if she wasn't getting enough that she would be fussy and up all night hungry right?
So at the appointment on Thursday she referred me to a dietitian and they got back to me so quick because they want to see her asap So I have an appointment tomorrow morning, which is really rare to get in that quick up here! I bought some formula to start supplementing her because I didn't want to wait until her next appointment but since it was so soon I want to wait and see what they say. I'm starting to get more worried and pray nothing is wrong with her and it will be an easy fix. But it's always in the back of my mind. So i'll let you know what happens tomorrow.

My Dad also came to visit this weekend!! It was so much fun and so good to see him and it's nice he lives a lot closer so we can see him more often.
We went to the spray park, had a BBQ, the girls made cookies with him, and we went out for dinner and a movie with NO KIDS. That's right, I left Laken with our sitter! I have pumped milk frozen so we got her taking a bottle so I can have some freedom! It's awesome. Next up. SPA DAY! Well after my husbands 24 day shift.... boo. 

So that's lately. Seems like the blogging world is pretty boring these days because "normal" people get summer holidays. Others have babies and husbands who work a lot for gay priorities like bills and buying a house. Whatever.

ps: In this first picture in the background take a look at what I bought! I got the girls the Melissa and Doug Responsibility chart and it's great! Thanks to Vinnie for telling me about it forever ago, I finally got it! Also I am getting on top of the twins and their WHINING!! It's bad. They have such high pitched voices and whine for everything! It's going to stop asap. Thanks to my awesome Parenting Solutions book, I have a few ways to do it. I'll let you know how it goes!!

The End.

I know right!? It was so peaceful.
And I caught this today. Made my heart melt.

Any ideas?
