My little Doll

Chad calls her momma's little barbie doll. I have no idea why he says that....

Lily and I were talking Saturday night and we decided to paint our toe nails. Too much fun for mama, until I realized (after painting her first five toe nails) that I had no polish remover. If you ever painted 4 month old nails, you know that this is the key supply along with q-tips. We worked it out in the end and I have to say they look so cute. Sorry for the fuzzy picture, that's why I pay people to do the work. As in Michelle Jenkins Photography. Do I get freebies for the plug Michelle? :) Oh and ignore the 2006 in the bottom of the picture, don't know how to change the year. And go figure, I got the camara in 2007. How does that happen?

Wheel of No Fortune

Well, I guess it's official. I'm not Wheel of Fortune material. :) I guess I should explain. About a month ago, Chad and I were watching some t.v. when something came on that got me excited. The WHEEL MOBILE was coming to town. Yes, that's right. The WHEEL MOBILE. Not only was it coming to town, but it was stopping about 5 miles from my house and holding open auditions for Americas favorite game show. (Wheel of Fortune - for those of you not in the loop) :) At that moment I knew what I had to do. So April 15th I got all glammed up, dropped the kid off with her Noni and headed to get my chance to spin the wheel. The only other two people I could find to go with me were my friend Tiffany and her sister. Everyone else I invited kinda did that laugh, you know the one where they're laughing at you, but trying to play it off. That's okay, I was kinda laughing at me too. But seriously, how could I not go? It was a random drawing where they called you on stage to interview you and play a mock game with 5 contestants at a time. Unfortunately none of our names were drawn, but we had a good time anyway. If they only knew how good I am. Seriously, I can solve those problems like nobodies business. Here's to trying. My camera broke while I was there so no pictures. If I get some from one of the others I'll post them. I did get a free Wheel of Fortune pen and CD ROM just for showing up. Yep, that's what we call hitting the jackpot. Although my pen never really worked and I don't know what I did with the CD.

4 Month Check Up

So Lily had her 4 month regular check up today which means vaccination time. You know I'm fine, I prepare myself and wait for that moment where I can scoop her up in my arms, hold her tight, and tell her mama loves her. This is how it should go right? Oh but no. Let me tell you what really happened. I mentioned to the nurse before she shot up my daughter, that I wanted to feed her right after she was done. She smiled at me and said "that's long as I can love on her when I'm done". I kinda stood there and grinned back, not knowing what to say. Well sure enough when she gave her that last shot it happened. My daughter is lying there turning blue from lack of oxygen because she forgot to breath while she was screaming and the nurse scooped her up and stood there comforting her. My heart broke. This was MY moment to comfort my daughter. I was suppose to make her feel better. Don't get me wrong, she is a really good nurse and LOVES children, which is why she wanted to hold her. But some things shouldn't be taken away from a mama. Anyway, this could be me just being overly sensitive, but it really did make me upset. I will however, make sure it will not happen next time.

Here I go again

To get a nose ring or to not get a nose ring...that is the question. For those who know me this isn't a huge shock. You just never know what I may come out looking like. I did the whole eyebrow ring for 3 years and now I'm itching for another piercing. The ONLY con is - it will leave a little scar. I'm thinking you won't notice it, much like my eyebrow scars. I'm sure my family will have a lot to say about it, but they love me anyway! (and I love them anyway) Despite all my hair colors and piercings (and maybe future tatoos) :) they've learned that this is who I am. While other peoples opinions are important, you can't be afraid to be who you are. Altough it is a little harder here in the South. Up North they're a little more...accepting...may be the word. So what should a girl do? I'm thinking I may just end up getting it. Who knows, maybe someone wants to brave going with me and get a piercing of their own!?

A Real Miracle

Right now, my little girl is on the floor grunting, kicking her legs, trying to turn over on her back. Kicking her legs....I can't get over how amazing that is. My heart melts when I see those little toes curl! The doctors told us she probably wouldn't have much use out of her legs, if any. If only they could see her now. What a true miracle of life! I'm so humbled when I think about how God touched and healed my little girl. A beautiful gift of His amazing grace!
