DJ's Post Surgery Appt...

Today we had DJ's post op surgery.

Dr. said that his ears are great!!! The tubes are working and he can hear a lot better! They did another hearing test on him and he did a lot better. He kept throwing a fit cause he dropped his binkie, so he couldnt hear everything cause he was too busy crying. But other than that the surgery was a success!!!!

The dr. also told me that if his ears are draining fluid then that is a sign of an ear infection, and to call and they will give him some ear drops. But if he is tugging or anything like that, its not a true ear infection.

So cross your fingers that we get no ear infections!!!!

What A Week... Week 5

What a week.... there was so much going on this past week, this might be a fairly long post ;)

Lets see..... this week was full of birthdays, baby showers, and Dr. appts.

Reagan had her Dr. Appt on Thursday and is doing great on her weight and height.


15lbs 8oz 45th %tile
26 inches 55th %tile
46cm 55th %tile *Head*

She has eczema just like her brother and still has thrush. I swear this thrush is never gonna go away. Ive changed bottles 3x already and sterilize them every night. I think it might still be lingering because DJ loves to take all of the binkies and put them in his mouth. He is a very sneaky lil guy. She is crawling like a mad woman and is now trying to pull herself up. She tries to climb up on DJ's couch and she has almost mastered it! She is a lot faster than DJ was, he didn't start crawling till 9-10 months. But he had teeth at this age and Reagan still is gumming it.


DJ is also doing great, he hasn't been complaining about his ears and hates when we put ear plugs in when we wash his hair. DJ's eczema has also flared up and Dave keeps calling him "Benjamin Button" cause his skin is all rough and bumpy from the eczema. Poor kids have Dave's skin. He is talking a lot more now that he can hear!

He Says:
nana *Banana/Grandma*
what dat
babo *Pablo*
shasha *Tasha*
mouf *mouth*
noe *nose*

and i think a few more but i cant think of them...

We went out to sushi with our friend Amanda. DJ tried sushi for the first time and threw it back to Dave. He will stick with his steamed rice with teriyaki sauce! And Reagan was eating lemon slices :)




Saturday was a very busy day....

We had my Cousins 5th Birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. DJ had a blast! He loved going on the rides and trying to play the games. Reagan just hung out and was passed around :) It was so packed there, we might take DJ another day so we can stay longer and play.


He kept saying "Yee Haw!!!"

we then went to our friends Baby Shower. Dennis & Melissa are having a little girl named Sora Rose. Melissa is due on March 29th but no one thinks she will make it.. lol We had a lot of fun there and i made her 2 Diaper Cakes. Everyone loved them! I was very proud of myself!!!




Today is going to be a relaxing day. I might make a few new tutu's and don't forget to check out my site Tutu's For A Princess. Stop by and let me know what you think of everything!!!

Melissa's Baby Shower Diaper Cake :)

I made my Friend a Diaper Cake for her Baby Shower :)
here is how you make them :)

First you get diapers and roll them up and put rubber bands around them. Make sure the rubber bands are in the middle.
Then you take a toilet paper roll and wrap 6 diapers around and tie them

Once you have a few rows you can start on a new roll. **1st row has 6 diapers, 2nd has 12 diapers, 3rd has 18 diapers, 4th has 22 diapers**

After you make a few tiers then you can decorate. I used Black ribbon with white dots and white ribbon with black dots and Hot Glued the ends together, then I added some Gerber Daisies.

And TA DA!!!!! you have a very cute Diaper Cake!!!

Happy Birthday Sweet Baby Eli...

Happy 1st Birthday Sweet Baby Eli
you will always have a place in my heart
Your Mommy, Daddy, Brother & Sister miss you so much
I hope you are having a big party up in heaven
Please Keep Kristi. and her family in your prayers...

Bridges, Sassy Babies, TuTu's, Sick LO's.... Week 4

Wow what a week.... First off, DJ got sick with the flu on Monday, then it came back to haunt everyone on wednesday night. Dave and I were down for the count. It was BAD!
To The Bay.....

This weekend we went to My friend Ellie's House in North Bay by San Francisco so i could take there "Save The Date" Pictures for the wedding. Well her husband was oncall and had to go to work before i got there so we just ordered pizza and let the kids play :) We havent seen eachother since October...
Me, Reagan, Miranda, Ellie

On the way home we stopped by daves cousins house, but no one was home. So we headed home. DJ fell asleep right after we left. He had a great time playing with mia. Everytime his butt hits that seat he is out! He must really love it!

So i thought it would be a neat idea to make a TuTu for my little cousin who is turning 5 in a few days. She loves the Disney Princesses and all the frilly things. The TuTu was really easy to make. I used 2 Spools of Tulle, 23 inches of Elastic, and 4 Yards of Hot Pink Ribbon.


I let Reagan play in it and she was cracking up because the tulle was tickling her!

Manic Monday "week 3"

Yes, I'm a day late... I'm sorry :)

Things have been really busy around here, I finally have a chance to sit and type :)

DJ is doing great after his surgery. He is running around like nothing ever happened. the most down time he had was when we got home from the surgery and he slept 5 hours. After that it seemed like he has more energy after the surgery than before :) I'm glad he is back to his normal self and bouncing off walls...


Reagan is crawling!!! She started to army crawl about a week ago and she finally has it down! She is all over the place now! Her bottom teeth should be here any day, i can see them through her gums :) She has learned that if she cries she will be picked up by people, so now when she cries and i don't pick her up, she throws a big girl tantrum. She is just like my middle sister ;)



Last night Dave went to WWE Wrestling, so i was home with the kids for a few hours. I called my dad to see if he wanted to come over for dinner but he already ate, so i asked him to bring over some corn starch, i want to make this pudding that i saw online. We used the rest of the corn starch to make Quicksand Goo. You mix water and corn starch together in a big bowl, then pour it onto a cookie sheet or plate. I put it on a baking sheet and put him in his high chair. He didn't want to touch it at first but once i dug in, he was all for it...





my kitchen was and still is a disaster... but we had a lot of fun :)

Tonight is a new episode of The Secret Life Of The American Teenager!!! I cant wait! Its getting really good. I hope Amy and Ricky get together in this episode :)

well kids are fussing, everyone have a great Monday!

DJ's Surgery Was A Success!

We are back at home and DJ is now sleeping :)

We got to the surgery center and filled out paper work, then they took us to the pre-op room and had him get into the little gowns. My dad called it his "Dress". There they took his temp, asked more questions and took his BP.

They also brought in a DVD player so he could watch something to keep him occupied, they had Thomas the train in. He never watches that show so he was not interested in the movie. He wanted to push all of the buttons instead.
Finally the nurse came in with his "Happy Juice", he wasn't going to drink it so they put it up his nose, he was PISSED! Screamed for a few minutes then it kicked in and he looked like a drunk! i couldn't stop laughing. The Anesthesiologist came in and talked with me and told me what was going to happen.
A few minutes later i went with the nurse to wheel him to the operating room. When we got to the OR Door i had to say bye. So i gave him a bunch of kisses and went into the waiting room with the family. About 15 minutes later he was out of surgery and in the recovery area. When i got in there he was screaming his head off and wanted mommy :) He was mad because his socks kept falling off because of the toe monitor/cuff. Once the nurse took of his monitor and pulled up his socks, he was fine. He got a Banana Flavored Popsicle and got mad whenever someone took it away.
After about 20 minutes of observation he was ready to go home :) We got him dressed but he wanted to keep the green socks The ride home was good, he finished his Popsicle and was really sticky. We got home and he laid on his backyardigans couch and was watching backyardigans when he fell asleep, he is still out. :)
he has a check up with the Dr in two weeks.

DJ's Surgery In The Morning...

DJ's Surgery has finally approached. We have to be at the surgery center at 5:45am in the morning. DJ cant eat or drink anything after midnight tonight. He's going to be a little upset when he doesn't get his waffle and milk in the morning :( But he does get to go in his jammies :)

When we get there I have to fill out all of the paperwork and all the other things that go along with the surgery. We will then be taken to a pre-op room where DJ will get into a gown and the nurse and anesthesiologist will come in and talk with me. I have to tell him that both my mom and dad have had trouble with anesthesia. It took my dad 4 days too come out of it after his hernia surgery. So that really freaks me out.

After that I will go with him to the surgery room until he gets ready to go under, They will give him a "Premedication" so he is a little groggy. Then i will give him kisses and go wait in the waiting room. The Dr. said that the whole procedure of putting the tubes in, cleaning them, putting drops in, and cotton his ears only takes about 20 minutes.

After the Surgery he will be wheeled into the recovery room and be monitored by a nurse. We will then get to go into the recovery room and be with DJ while he wakes up. He will get some juice and maybe a little snack. If all is well, we will get to leave after about 1 hour in the recovery room. We will get ear drops for after the surgery with Dr instructions.

Hopefully everything goes as planned and nothing happens. When we get back tomorrow, i will update on how he is doing.

Please keep us in your prayers...

Happy 1 Year Blogoversary! "Week 2"

I cant believe its been a year since i started this lil blog! I think it has come a long way :) When i started it i didn't think i would keep up with it but here i am 1 year later and over 175 posts. Go Me!!! I first started this blog for my pregnancy with Reagan but it soon turned into a Family Blog :)

This past week has been a pretty boring one ;) We got all the information about DJ's surgery for this Friday. He's not allowed to have any food or drinks after 12 midnight prior to the surgery. He is gonna be very mad. he likes his milk and waffle in the mornings. I have to call his Ped tomorrow and get a blood test done by Wednesday, that way they know his blood type and all the other things just in case something happens while he is under and needs a blood transfusion or something along those lines.. *Lets Pray Nothing Bad Happens* Its a fairly easy surgery and he will/should be home a few hours after his surgery.

Dave and our friend Dennis are going to WWE RAW on Sunday at Arco Arena. So i will be at home by myself with Reagan and Surgery Boy. I might have some friends come over and help me while Dave is gone.

Super Bowl is today and there are NO GOOD TEAMS playing today... It would be a much better game if the TITANS were playing. I mainly watch it for the commercials but this year a lot of companies are pulling out of the commercial slots. I guess P.E.T.A. made a commercial but NBC said that they aren't going to air it. S it must have been really bad... Oh Well i can care LESS about Peta. That is a COMPLETELY different subject...

Other than all of this things are going okay. We are out of town this weekend and whenever we are out of town Reagan does not sleep well. she tosses and turns every 15-20 minutes. so i got no sleep. so a nap is definitely in the future today.



I have a Vacuum Feind! Everytime i bring it out, he wants to vacuum..
