She had to have been switched at birth....had to of been!



Right after this monkey stood up and started yelling and waving his finger at her...I said that's my boy showing sister that this is wrong.. LOL she loves Barak Obama, no idea why, because our household is NOT his biggest fan. So this to me is weird, cute, but weird

Can you guess what we are getting ready for?




Cold Cold Cold weather. It is suppose to gets in the 20's today or below, OH and some ice storm is coming too! Yeah! (sarcasam) It is 36 right now, but the temperature continue to fall. The only thing that I hate is that on Friday it was 75 degress now today it is going to be a high of 31...seriously! That just bugs me, and by the end of the week it will be in the 60-70 again. I'm doing a little bit better since yesterday, I am waiting to get into a doctor and see if they might be able to help me. Thanks so much for everyone that left me comments, that helped a lot!

Have you ever had a day, week, or month where you are just down? Well this is my month or year for that apparently. I am going through a lot right now. I don't want to go into detail, but I just need some encouraging words right now. I know that what is happening to me has got to be normal, but I can't take it. We are having some marriage issues, and I don't know where this will go. I want so badly to be with my family in Alabama, and I think that might have a lot to do with why I'm feeling this way. I don't know what is giving me that desire to go home, but it is worse than it was when I first moved out here. And the crazy thing is, I love Texas. That's why I'm so confused. I don't want to be in Alabama, but I want my family. I have missed ALL of my newphews first everything, and it hurts. None of my family gets to see Ant's firsts or be here for everything going on, and I just can't take it. I have wonderful friends and family here, but what do I do now? How do I please everyone? I thought I was doing pretty damn good being away from all my family, but I'm starting to see that I'm not. So I'm torn, and I have no idea what to do. I just want to lay in bed and cry right now....I need some advice.

Does anyone know?
















what this may be?monkey gets this crazy rash every night, sometimes in the morning. His legs turn bright red almost like sunburn, then welts come up. It doesnt seem to bother him, but I've tried everything and it won't stop coming! The doctor said it was a staph infection in his skin, but with it coming and going I don't know that I believe that. It is not rough like exzema. And no lotion or anything works to get rid of it. It is not an allergic reation, we have ruled that out also. The rash sometimes starts at his head and covers his body right down to his toes, with tiny bumps. I give up.....any help?

We found motivation.....

Tonight at Ballet class (for princess) monkey got up out of the blue and walked about 4 steps to a remote (video game remote) I was so happy, but didn't want to make a big deal, so at home we video taped him walking some more. This is the most he has walked EVER he has taken probably 20-30 steps in the last hour. So maybe video games will be his motivation to walk.....haha

Playhouses, Zoo, and the Happy Meal Shapped Mcdonalds

There has been a lot of things going on lately. The kids have been back to school for a couple of weeks, and the hubby is back to work also. I have started babysitting my friends two children during the days, and working from home for a few hours each day as well. We got the playhouse done, but they haven't gotten to play in it a whole lot due to the cold weather. Sunday it was nice and about 65 out, so we packed up all five kids (my friend and her two kids came along) and we headed to the Dallas Zoo. None of us had been before, and the kids enjoyed themselves.
monkey still is not walking, he will be 17 months in a few weeks, and just has no desire to walk. He will walk holding onto something, but not on his own! It is so frustrating, we've tried everything!! His aspiration issues seem to be OK, but maybe coming back again, and having some other minor breathing issues. He will be going back to the lung doctor soon so hopefully they can see whats going on. I don't know if there is a connection in the not walking, breathing problems, aspiration, and rashes or if they are all just bombarding him at once. Any ideas??
