Dr update!

So I brought the two babies to the DR and they do not have any symptoms of Pneumonia.. thank goodness Liam does have an ear infection thought so I have to pick up some meds for that. but all is well with the kids and me... My mom on the other hand had the bug and is sick even thought I had to drop off the babies to her so I could go to work.... so hopefully I'll be able to leave early today and get home to help with the kids and let mom rest. everyone around me is dropping like flies to this cold thing.... Yikes

Tuesday, December 30, 2008


Yes, you read it here pneumonia... we have it well Dennis has it and prob had it for about 3-4 weeks. Dennis has been fighting a cold for 4 weeks and finally went to the Dr. last night and bingo we have an answer PNEUMONIA! wonderful ! greeeaaaaatttt
and yes he is contagious till Friday so he has to wear a mask around the children woo hoo how's we get so lucky! try explaining this to a 2 year old why his father all of a sudden is playing DR. and dress up !LOL So Liam has had a cold for about 3 weeks and I think he's going to be going in to be checked because he is to start at pre-school in the beginning of the year! all this after the wonderful Christmas he had.. Poor guy. I think I may have Avery checked as well since we are all together and they say that infants sometimes do not show signs.. wonderful :( So will have to make that appointment and round up the crew or get Nana to do it which will be a whole other story ...... So that is what is up with the family this week... sounds like New Years will be a blast this year!!! LOL

Merry Christmas!!

So christmas has come and gone like a whirl winds once again... and now we prepair for next year! yippieeee

So our morning started out fine Liam got up and came down to open his presents from Santa. he saw that the cookies and milk were gone that he left out for the big man and that the keys we had left out side the door were now inside next to the plate that Liam had also left for Santa to get in since we do not have a chimney.( we have an old set of keys tied with a ribbon that we set out side)

So he was excited and instead of opening one gift after another he first took them out of the Santa bag and piled them up to then open them and play with each one as he asked either I or Daddy to open it so he could play with it. it was great!

we then got ready to go see Baci since she decided that morning she was not going to aunt Pegs(arrgghhh) so everyone had to go see her in the home. on the way there or as we pulled in to the nursing home Liam proceeded to throw up all over himself. this was the beginning of the a 48 hour bug... nothing he ate all day would say down and he didn't eat a thing Christmas day or the next day. we are just now able to eat and or drink something that has not come back up. I hope the baby did not catch it. I'm praying it did not infect anyone else.
so besides the puking all day on Christmas we had a nice time. We saw everyone at Aunt Pegs and had a wonderful time!

this is Liam giving Avery her gifts there is a baby in there some where

Dennis taking an hour to figure out what flavor candy cane he wants he was driving us nuts because he would not pick one!LOL

Tuesday, December 23, 2008


As of last night I'm officially done with shopping!! did not think I was going to get the last 4 things done for Christmas But with the help of an awesome hubby. Who at the present time feels like an elephant is sitting on his head squeezing his butt cheeks together , as he says. we got it done I just have to go and pick up the pictures of the kids from the printers and wrap them to night! I'm done I'm done yipppiee (doing a happy dance at my desk) so the tree is up the cookies for Santa are baked and presents are wrapped!! this time it was cut close but we did it!! Just have to put the keys out so Snata can get in to leave Liam his gifts...... whoo hooooo

So Behind!!

So the tree went up on Sat. I Felt like it would never go up...
but it is up ... we will just see how long it will take before some of the ornaments end up on the floor.. this not due to cats but to one curious child!

And last 2 weeks ago we got our pictures done so it was for Liam's 2nd year pics, Avery's 6 weeks and family pic's all rolled into one..

last week we did the family sausage making at Aunt Pegs and had a wonderful time we made a whole Heep of sausage, Polish , Italian and sun dried tomato!
so we have been extremely busy.

Then there is the Christmas shopping that I have been squeezing in to any spare space there is.. on line and out on the street.. I really don't want to be dealing with the actually store with 2 kids in tow it's really not hat fun

although it looks like I'm having a blast I'm not I truly am not having fun.

o- yeah I forgot the colds I did not mention the sniffling and sneezing wonderful colds that kept us from the birthday party on Sat. How could I forget those .......LOL

Then there is the blog that has been truly neglected.. sorry guys it's the holidays!

Saute Pan Part 2

A great deal considering and open till this Sunday for anyone interested. William Sanoma has a sale on one saute pan that normally is 160. for 69.99.
I figure if I'm going to pay that much for a pan why not have it be a great one and pay a bit more so I think I got a great deal and the search is now finished!! Woo Hooo

Monday, November 24, 2008


O-my It was wonderful! amazing! how does she dance for 3 hours on heels?
she sang everything from Thunder Dome to Proud Mary! It was awesome.
She is truly a great performer.
I got ready for 5 and was out the door I had given Dennis all he needed for a night with the kids. headed over to my Friend Iva's house to get her and we were off. We went to New carrolton station to take the train in and we arrived at 7 the concert was to start then but I guess as typical .. since I have not been to a concert in years, she started at 7:30 the opening was Tina in the middle of the "stage" on a platform that came down to the center stage. the staging was great. they had a cage for the song Thunder dome. the camera eye for the James bond song and then at the end the had a large arm type thing that swung out over the crow that she stood n and it went from the right side of the stage to the left it was great. not to mention her dancing during proud Mary the signature dance move that she does. it was amazing on the back drop during the end of the intermission she had pictures of herself and Ike showing the begining of her career to now and all the headlines it was a great presentation she is amazing it was the most wonderful Mothers day gift ever! thank you so much for the night(Dennis) love you!

Saturday, November 22, 2008

All I want is a new saute pan....

I've been to 4 places and who knew that a saute pan would be so much..?
is it typical for them to be 50.00 to start the up? geeze I don't want a gold plated one or a copper one
(saw those for about 120.00) when did pans become so expensive or am I being way to cheep? So i continue my search for a new one... hoping the one I have for now will do until it dies but hopfully not too soon?

1st Snow!

Liam's 1st snow of the year!

too cute!

So holding Avery last night and she is trying to hold her head up... she does it for a while then she lets go and her head falls which ever way....(that not too cute) anyway she is already changing I can see it.She already looks older.. yeah i know she is older .. duhaaaa but she all ready has changed... all in the single 4 weeks she has been here.. ya so I'm a bit crazy ..LOL

Friday, November 14, 2008


So decided today to see if my boots fit... and about half of them will fit if I wear a very thin sock. I then decided to go thru my other summer shoes.. and I'm very sad to say that a majority of them are not fitting.. So very sad..... So may shoes and so many do not fit sniff sniff
I wonder if my feet will go back down ? Are the swollen or is this it? I know I'm not the only one this has happened to and this is not the first time it has happened because with Liam I had the same issue. I wonder if it's because of BFing?
But alas I think this is a permeate thing and I will have to find new shoes... I know you prob think this is a good thing but finding shoes is not always easy ... anyway Fair well to my shoe collection.... at least this way I see the ones I have not worn in a while and can get rid of those!

Lunch Visit

SO today we made plans to go and see daddy at work and have lunch. While doing this I was also meeting up with friends from my office because we are right down the street from each other. SO we left here at 11ish I think a bit before and made it there in about and hour due to a bit of traffic and some time it took to park due to the parking attendant who had to refill the ticket meter but could not find the right key first then had no clue how to refill the tickets. Anyway it was a great visit and I went up o the office to see everyone. Unfortunately the bosses were not in or back yet from there lunch so.. I waited around for a bit but they were not showing so I proceeded to then go down to Dennis office to visit with his coworkers. So we were there for about 30 min or so but you would think I was there all day by the time I got back it was 4pm LOL yeah 4 what the heck were we doing? seems like we were not there long but it was 4 Liam took a nap on the way home. So that was an hour.. not to bad considering.. SO now we are home watching The Point. because I returned all the dvd to the library. we will have to go back tomorrow to get new ones. so that was our day today..

Trick or Treat!

This is our little dragon before Trick Or Treating

Friday, October 31, 2008


So I am sad to say my normal size feet 8.5 have gotten larger..... since the pregnancy! I just tried to put on a pair of boots that I used to wear. They are SO VERY TIGHT so not sure if this s a good thing because now I don't have shoe, ie.. boots for winter and will have to go out shopping for new boots!! yeahy on one hand and boo on the other having to spend the money right now for new shoes is not something I'm looking forward to.. Perhaps Santa will bring me some?? HUmmmm anyway Now I have more than a few shoe/ boots that I can't wear... Unless it's a temporary thing but I fear it is not .... O-well shoe shopping will be on my list of things to do now will have to surf the web for those awesome deals!! LOL

Insomnia yet again!

So here I am it's 3 am I've been up since about 2 thinking I would go back to sleep , But noooooo. think it may be due to the fact that I'm going in on Tuesday and the fact that my mother refuses to move out of the house after I've and comments in front of her to leave and when is she leaving and she does do or say anything nothing phases her? I don't get it I've almost basically said to her get out move you have a house what are you waiting for?
Plus the fact she loves to talk about everyone ex- specialy my husband behind our backs and she get caught all the time. Does not think anything of it. Does she not see that she's only killing herself and making herself look like the ass. I'm not sure what her issue is but I'm really getting tired of it and I'm about to blow-up at her yet again. she is driving me nuts.
So here I sit at now what looks to be about 3:25 am watching food network Unwrapped Love this show and my mother is sleeping on the Porch area and I don't give a poop if I woke her up. that's what she has to deal with if she is going to stay and I'm fed up!

Friday, October 17, 2008


38 weeks and I'm going in on Tuesday to be induced!! SO the PEA will be here either Tuesday or Wed.!!!
SO excited and so ready for this to be all over!! Now if the family would move out of my house!!
anyway that is my exciting new for today!!

Pumpkin Picken and other fruits!

We had a wonderful Sunday out at Larriland farms! WE love this place.

Liam had a wonderful time Picken apples and tomatoes with daddy and then we went over to the Barn where they have a hug hey maze for the kids. I went in With Liam but then he quickly took off and Mommy got lost!LOL I could not find Liam! my only panic was he could get by me and head to the exit and I would have not seen him and then he would be wondering around the farm ... So Dennis walked the perimeter as I asked another young girl if she has seen a little boy in a raven sweatshirt. thankfully she said yes he's right here. so As I rounded the corner Liam was there all smiles! thank goodness he did not panic. Prob because there was so many kids in there and he was having a ball.

So we then headed over to the pumpkins and Liam found his right away and would not let go for anything.

Unexpected Hospital Visit

So went to the DR. this afternoon and guess what I was told I had to go to the labor and delivery to monitored!! Wonderful ...all becuse my blood pressure being a bit higher than normal I believe it was 140 the first time and 133 the second time. So that sent me to the hospital that thankfully is right next door to the OB's office. So my appointment with the DR was at 2:40 Go to see her around 3:30 and by 4:15 or so I was being hooked up to a blood pressure cuff that took my pressure every 15 min and monitoring the baby heart beat till about 6:45 They stuck me about 3 times trying to get some blood after I told them where they normal stick me but why listen to me I don't know .. So they finally stuck me where I said and things were fine Hello if you listened first I would not have this huge bump on my hand from where the vein popped. SO as soon as I was all hooked up my pressure was at 109 LOL so figures! and I don't think it really went over 133 again unless I was talking with the nurse. that's what made it go up when I was on my side resting it was always 120's or so. So that was fun no one knowing where I was I called my mom to let her know why I was running late and tried to call Dennis but for some reason I could not get the number to go thru and then I could not get to my cel when I heard it ring due to being connected to a machine. wee what fun. So the Dr did come in and was like figures your fine "prob one of many false alarms you may have" I'm hoping not too many of these.
So I think in about 2 weeks we will have a little one and I have to tell my bosses I'm done at the end of this week even though I'm suppose to be done now per what the DR. said today but I think it's a bit much considering it's the first time my blood pressure when up. So well see

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

Not much today

Humm not much to post today i went to the DR. yesterday and things are good. baby in postilion thank goodness. Not sure of the weight will find that out next week.

things are progressing slowly on the mom moving out! the furniture is to be delivered today for a second try. Guess they tried to bring a huge semi down a really small street and it did not work. so Today should be the day.. well at least the furniture day! so We shall see when mom will go.

Adam is to come at the end of October which would be great cuz the baby will prob be her by then! mom will be out of the house and dad could also stay at her place so the guest room would be free and I could have someone come and clean the house between her moving out and Adam showing up! will have to post a pic of Uncle Adam. this is Uncle Adam at 250 feet rock climbing in colorado

So things are moving.. slowly but at least they are moving and to top it off Dennis is putting up moulding around the dining room and living room door!! woohoo looks wonderful!

Saturday, September 27, 2008


Turn baby Turn!

So the last DR. visit was good the baby was heading in the correct direction. Thank goodness.
everything else is good. so I'm happy with that. just now ready I've gotten to the point where I'm done.. yeah know I 'm between 34 and 35 weeks and soooo done. every 5 min. to get up and pee the constant heartburn.. O- the joy's and Today is our company cookout and guess what it's raining woohooo this should be good. not much else so I guess I'll stop..

Breached baby

So went to my next Dr apt. with my OBGYN the one I like!
and come to find out the baby is breached! woohoo great for me(sarcastic)
So until the 37-38 week the DR said she will not worry about it but if the baby does not turn she talking C-section... not looking forward to that so PRAY the baby turns!! right now it's laying across my body instead of head down!! WEEEE what fun!

Liams Perspective!

This is Liam and his perspective when he gets hold of mommies camera!

Tuesday, September 16, 2008

OOOOO Pinching!!

Not only pinching pushing and running into you at full force with his head?
what is that all about?
then he's been clenching his teeth and making a growling sound? where did this come from? I asked him who is that who showed you that? no response. HUmm so we had about 3 timeouts from the time I got home from the Dr. till bed time and I was ready to put him to bed at 8 instead of 9 because Liam was out of control! but as soon as Daddy came home things were fine and he curled up with him on the couch and fell asleep. feeeww
So not sure how to nip this in the butt except with the time out. he hates it. but it's the only thing I can think of I just don't get it and of course it's always about the same time .. when we get home so I think it may be an attention thing ? the clenching of the teeth and putting his face in yours worries me because I don't want him to crack or chip his teeth? that's the weird thing I have never seen anyone do this except for one other child to remain nameless.... but he is not around that child that much so not sure if this is were is been learned. I don't like it. ex specialy
the putting his face in yours. I've old him no that's not nice but not sure if it's getting thru?
we'll see or it will be more time outs until it stops.

Krispy Kream Sunday!!!

How come no one has thought of this? or has and I have not seen it?

How awesome would it be to have a HOT Krispy Kream Doughnut sandwiched between two scoops of vanilla bean ice cream with hot fudge and caramel.,Whip cream and nuts with a cherry!


of course this is the only time I can think of something so sickening sweet because there is no way I can have one!

But why has there been no collaboration on this between Brusters Ice cream and Krispy Kream or any other ice cream place.

O- the joy

of a sunday right now!!

Dr. apointments week One!

So Week one down and finished. Not to bad I came in to work and hour early on Thursday and left at about 1:45. I was almost late because there are people in the parking garage that 1 don't know were to pay and 2. how to move thru the parking garage when there are three lanes open and they just can seem to get in the line with one car in it. They must stay in the longer line are they tied to the bumper of the car in front of them? . DUH? don't get it?
So I was about 5 min late and that really did not matter because they had me sit there waiting for about 15 min to sign in? go figure. then I went back to sit in a chair with 2 little monitors on my belly that could hear the baby's heart beat and every time he/she moved I had to hit a sorts buzzer thing like I was playing Jeopardy. So I think I sat there for about 45-60 min waiting and watching some bad TV. I was out by about 3:30 and home by about 4. I sat my big butt on the couch and watched Project Runway I had recorded. wee what fun At least I got out of work early.
So that was the first week. So this coming Monday I have the Apt. at 2:45 so this one will be the same as I do on Thursday's as well as a sonogram I think? and then they said the medication was working well with the sugars so to keep it up.
that's all that's it
until Monday!

Tuesday, September 9, 2008

To the Dr.s again and again and again.......

SO went to the diabetes center at the hospital yesterday and...I'm on medication to bring my levels down during my fasting period. Yippie for me Not only that!! I get to go to the hospital twice a week !! until the birth! I'm so lucky!(sarcastic)So as it stands now I have Dr. appointments for: 9/11. 9/15,9/18,9/22, 9/25, 9/29,10/2,10/6,10/9, 10/13, 10/16, 10/20, 10/23, 10/27,10/30 all of them doing an NST test which is a fetal non stress test and half of them to have an additional Bio physical profile lasting from one hour to one and a half hours.
Lucky Me !
and then I have my normal OBGY appointments that I will try to coordinate with this lovely schedule! How the Hell did I get so lucky!:(such a basket case this am trying to figure out how to tell my work. I've told them but we have yet to sit down to figure out a schedule to work with when I'm on this big project. and the Project manager in the office is an idiot and does not realize he has to get someone else to cover for me and I'll take a back seat to it because they have to figure out what is going on as much as I don't know or do know they have to get caught up. woohoo for non stress lets see where my blood pressure goes from here during to this!

Thursday, September 4, 2008


So Looks like I'm heading to the diabetes center on Monday for some testing and a talking to. Yippiee for me!
this all because my morning sugar levels are too high but fine for the rest of the day.
So next Dr. apt will be on the 18th with Dr. T and before that the diabetes center on Monday the 9th.
We also well, Liam will be starting swim classes on wed. at the local swim center. hopefully he will act like he did for his grandparents not like he did for me last Sunday at Poppies and not wanting to get in at all.
I also have my kick off meeting with the local mom's club on the 9th so that should be fun.. sorta know a few people but hard to join allot of the activities because they are during the day for allot of that SAHM and I'm not one of those just yet. so it's hard to get to know people but they have helped with the locating of baby sitters and help when in a pinch for day care! so that's all for today! woohooo

What to do with your trick or treat bag when not holding treats!

Last night as Liam get's ready for bed He notices his treat bag for Halloween I was looking for and found. I had hung it on his mirror as not to lose it yet again. So daddy was reading a story and he wanted it. I was called in from the next room to find this!!

So for all of you wondering what to do with your treat bag before and after Halloween here you go!

We think we sould send him to Jamacia to join a band?
The bag is the spider from pottery barn.

Monday, August 25, 2008


O it was so great to see him! He's so big and talking about everything. I have been told he jumped off the deep end of the pool and was swimming around like a fish. All with his swimmy vest on. Some people (I was told) found it hard to believe he is two. Yeah he is tall for his age. I think. but he seems to have grown up in those two weeks he was gone! Aww it was great just to sit and watch him play! I have to get the pictures from mom!! to post any! of course he did not want to go to bed he wanted to be with mommy and daddy. but he was tired and I got him down. brush the teeth, wash the face and two bed books. he then proceeded to throw every stuffed animal he has in bed with him and climb in. I was like id there room for Liam in there? he just climbed on top of them. and I had to cover with both blankets. it's so nice to have him home
although he was up this morning at 6:30 and I had to get him to lay back down till everyone got up. Hope he did I had to bribe him with a granola bar. LOL
but he had to tell me I had to change his diaper and then when I put him up on the changing table he was like wrong way and turned himself around.LOL all full of conversation this am. So glad we signed him up from swim class but he may have exceeded the mommy and me one's we are suppose to do and we'll have to upgrade to private lessons? we'll see the first wed of September!

Wednesday, August 20, 2008


SO I did not think it went bad until I sat here and thought about it for a while. I think the DR. was calling me fat and lazy? saying that I had a 50/50 chance of being diabetic because I have gestational diabetes and that it runs in my family. Thanks the proceeds to tell me my numbers are high and that he wants to test me in the office. Fine I think. Dennis has the wonderful idea to test with my monitor at the same time. theirs reads 85 mine reads 119 so someone is off? so I'm getting a new monitor today. because he also mentioned taking insulin... aaa no I don't think so thank you but no. let's see what the new monitor say's and then he has me going over to the diabetes center in the hospital and of course they don't call my cel phone which I gave them to call me instead of the house since I get home late. so I'll have to deal with that tomorrow. GRRREEEAT!
then he looks at my blood pressure numbers and say's there too high still and that the one in the office are too high also... and have I been diagnosed with hypertension before.. again AAAAAAA- NO there too. this is after my normal Dr. , Dr. T has said to stay under 140/90 is were I need to be and that is normally where I've been. until this fool is telling me no there still to high. would you like me to just lay down and not move to get a low pressure?
So I emailed my normal DR., Dr T and asked her what she thought I also made the or tried to make my net apt. with her but could not so the one after the next will be with her so I can talk to her about it. unless I get an email back from her sooner than 4 weeks. next apt. is in 2 weeks with the man that thinks I do everything wrong.

So Liam is away, Dennis went fishing in ocean city. And I'm alone to do what ever I want!! Woohoo (do a little dance).
So I had made an appointment to get a facial at 10:30 am
I woke at about 8:30am
got my butt out of bed about 8:45 to shower and dress down for breakfast at 9 am
Left the house at 9:45 to stop at Kholes to return a blouse and get a new bra that fell apart , not sure they would take it back but they did and I got 2 new ones (yeahy)
deposit at bank at 10:15is and then off to the salon for my facial woohooo.
Facial was awesome and she massages my arms and back it was the most relaxing hour and a half! bliss
so Now it's 12 noon. stop by Tuesday morning find a blanket like Liam's for the baby. (good find)
Head down to Sweet Pea Repeats to see the new stuff they got in the place was full on moms and grandmothers. got a few things for Liam for the winter and the new baby a few items. Did not see a crib Hoping to get one at the wee sale this Sat.
1pm Head to Garry's for lunch have a chicken wrap and salad with Ice tea. the waiteress continually calling me sweaty and hun , hate that. That did not do so well fro my sugars they went up must have been the chicken it was fried.
head to the market to pick up a few things on sale, Greek yogurt, Yumm lower sugar than the others and much creamer!! yummmy got a steak I thought I could grill up for Dennis and I that evening and some Fresh veggies.
drop off at the house.
4pm head to the nail shop to get a pedicure! woohoo relaxing once again. warm bubbly water around my feet.
the Girl at the shop is also due in Sept. she so tiny she looks like she's ready all the Asian ladies in the salon say I'm carrying a girl. I'm like really hummmm.
So finish that head back home and plop my self on the couch at about 5pm
Fewww Nice day. watch the Olympics
call Dennis .. steak on hold for now heat my self some chicken and butter nut squash for dinner
9 pm comes around and I'm done! head to bed
awesome day!


So as you all know Liam is with his grandparents in Florida.. and Guess who's coming.... FAY!
SO my DH is in a panic wanting me to call. I called last night everything seems fine I'll call yet again this afternoon. To make sure things are still fine and see if I can talk with my dad because sometime mom does not get things right well lets say more often than not mom does not get things right. LOL
SO that's that for now I'm sure they are fine and they would not put Liam in harms way.

Glucose Test

So I think I got out of doing the 3 hour glucose test! Yippie I just have to monitor my blood sager instead and deal with it that way so I am considering my self gestational diabetic because I failed my 2nd blood sugar test it was 180 which I know is way to high. So the Dr. has to prescribe me the test strips and I'll be all set! I have the monitor form last time and I'm good I have everything. so Hopefully I can start doing it tonight if the prescription is called in today.
So I'm happy about that but not so much that I have to watch what I eat but I've been being more careful since the test results sooooo. no more ice cream not more pasta or pizza, no fries or bread just veggies and protein.

Totally stolen from a new Blog friend, Maria!!!
OK Here it goes I'll do my best but I may have to come back to add to ones I'm not sure of right now.
A- first thing that comes to mind is my brother Adam he's now living way out in Colorado living the life of a skier, climber and what ever else he can get into.

B- Baby bean more like jumping bean in my stomach boy is this one a kicker, moving like he/she is ready to get OUT! LOL

C- Cats, We had 4 but we are now down to 2 we lost our two fav's Max and Mozart with in about 6 months of each other now we have Princess and Deuteronomy to keep us company.

I- indigestion .... WOW still kicking thank goodness for Zantac! praise the lord!

D- Dieting, yes I know that's not what your suppose to do when Preggo but again I have Gestational Diabetes so a new diet has been introduced.. low sugar and trying to keep the blood pressure down as well weee what fun

E- Erie feeling of silence when I get home as you all know we are with outLiam till next weeks. I hear crickets!

F- Fishing - off shore to be exact is what my hubby does for fun. the treats that are brought back are great! which also reminds me of fish and chips can't seem to get a good fish and chip since I came to MD but there have been some close ones!

G- Gelato! yummm there's a great place around the corner from us in town yummy stuff

H- Home sweet home Now it's Maryland but I grew up in Ri in a po-dunk town in the middle of no where and I know your thinking RI is too small to have a no where but it does!!

T- Thomas the train... I have not missed that guy as much as I do now that my son is on vacation and I have not had to watch a single episode!

U- under ware can I just say that the undergarments I have do not last. geees I need more which then leads to the shopping LOL


W- water or waterfront property something I hope we an work up to it's the plan! to have a house on the water not that it has to be the ocean but on the river or something that would be nice

the silence at times is defining at the house.
there's not running of little feet on the floor or crashing of toy trains together, no giggling or hi mommy, daddy. no Come here or I want ca's, movie...... the jumping on the sofa and laughing so quite
but then there is not crying and screaming of NOOOOO

This say's it all

Liam's On Vacation!

SO.. It was done on Saturday after a long afternoon with the family at the Reunion and about 4 hours of swimming Liam was sent on his way with Grampy and Nana to Florida. We had a wonderful Sat with him and it sucked to see him go of course I cried as he left and I'm crying now talking about it LOL
Shaking it off......

OK So I know he's having a good time because I've talked to my mom about 3 times since they left. He has asked for us but Nana tells him were working and will see us soon. So they stopped in GA for peaches and I guess Liam went to wash his hands and feet off at a spigit and then decided to take off his shirt and pants to really clean up! LOL (boy does he love water)

and then of course the diaper was around his knees so he had a little free for all cleaning up!

Sunday Dennis and I had a nice day going to breakfast with some friends and then heading to Annapolis for the afternoon. We walked around a bit. bought a few things and then ended the day over at Pussers restaurant on the water and watched the boats go by. about 4 it started to rain a bit so we are asked if we would like to move inside. so as soon as we sat down inside it started to hail! about the size of nickels people were coming in drenched! So glad we moved!

Anyway The house has been very quite with out Liam.. I miss him terribly but I know he's having fun in Florida with the Beach and the gulf of Mexico and of course the pool!

here are a few pictures of him before he left at the reunion.

Doesn't he look like he's having a wonderful conversation! LOL
