Clinic and Crawdads

Today was Daxtons clinic visit. We haven't been to clinic for a whole month. I was a little nervous, that is the longest we have been between visits. Everything went well. His echo looked great. And all of his labs were good. So there was no reason to be nervous. I did however have a total embarrassing melt down with our Doctor and our Nurse. I am just super stressed, really worried about Daxtons development, buying a new house, the girls are driving me crazy(always fighting), my pink eye is driving me crazy, etc. It all just seemed to explode right at that moment. They were so nice and listened and gave me words of encouragement. I told them they could charge me for therapy time also. It always does feel good to cry. This picture is Daxton at clinic playing with his favorite toy. He did gain 1 pound. Seriously that was all one pound in one month. I think I had my expectations a little too high. But hey at least he is gaining. Here are some updated pictures of my little man.

When Daxton was in the hopsital we got a Life Flight t-shirt from one of our Life Flight friends This is him showing it off.

This boy loves books!

Sleeping with his alligator. One of my favorite things is watching my sleeping babys....so peaceful!

Tuesday night we went up to Strawberry resevoir with some friends to catch some crawdads. It was the coolest thing ever. You throw in a piece of chicken leg on a fishing string, wait for a few seconds, pull the string up and there are 3-4 crawdads biting the chicken leg. The boys caught about 20-30 of them then we took them over and boiled them-poor little things-and ate them. They honestly were not too bad, it is just like eating a mini lobster. It is the most bizarre thing I have ever seen. We had a lot of fun. It was so beautiful there. I love the mountains! It was a perfect evening. Thanks Topher and Ryan.

Daxton and Hazel waiting for Dinner....

Mady and Macy putting rocks in Ryans exhaust pipe, they are such good helpers. Don't they look so innocent?

Nutrious and Delicious, tastes just like chicken(not really)

Our Feast, it looks like a cornucopia.

Ryan and his girls sitting around the campfire roasting marshmellows and starbursts. YUMMY!

So comfy.....

I just wanted to show you all how attractive I have been looking. I know, I know try not to be jealous. I don't know who would ever say that they liked having pink eye? Seriously.

Who let the dogs out?

P.S. The movie quote answer was Lord of the Rings-Fellowship of the Ring. Good guessing

Pink eye, yucky

I have had a terrible case of pink eye. I have been trying so hard not to give it to the kids. I finally broke down today and called in for a prescription. I am one to just let it run its course but I have had it. I was looking up home remedies for it. One was to put lemon juice in your eye, ouch! Another was to put breast milk in the eye, no thank you. I did try to put contact solution in the eye and that did not work. So I will now use the eyedrops.
So while I have been under the weather I have been on a movie kick. So the quote this week is from these movies(hint). The quote I wanted to give Ryan said was way to easy so here it is. "Many that live deserve death. Some that die deserve life. Do not be too eager to deal out death and judgement. Even the wise cannot see all ends"
Good luck

Saturday night and the moon is out.......

My blog was defiantly in need of a face lift. So instead of preparing my Sunday School lesson for church tomorrow I will update my blog.
My sis-in-law is doing better. She is out of the ICU and now on the floor. She should be coming home sometime next week. It has been pretty nasty stuff. My little Mady was super sick for several days but is finally feeling better. So far no one else has gotten what she had. I did however wake us this morning with a little bit of pink eye-unclean-hopefully that doesn't transfer to my babies.
I officially started packing today. I started in the Attic where all of our storage is. It is so stinking hot up there I thought I was going to die, but I got that part out of the way. Our home inspection was last Thursday and everything went well. The house needs a new water heater and dish washer and the seller is taking care of that, so that's good news. We are so excited. We are going to be so house poor. I don't think we will be going on another cruise anytime soon. That is ok!
We have Daxton's cardiology appointment this Thursday. It has been a month and I am going crazy. The Transplant team is my comfort blanket. Daxton is doing great so I am not too concerned heart wise it is just nice to know everything is still ticking away the way it is supposed too. Daxton finally popped out his top tooth. He was very miserable for about a week. I was getting a little worried but after that white little mama showed herself life was good again.
Now I'm off to give Daxton's one am meds alittle early, shhh don't tell anyone.

p.s. Movie quote for monday was Dumb and Dumber. Seriously one of the best movies ever. That might be a stretch but it is pretty dang hilarious. "Samsonite....I was way off."

Swine Flu and Monday Movie Madness

My sister-in-law is in the ICU at intermoutain medical center with the swine flu. She is in pretty bad shape. They can't get her oxygen sats up so they might have to put her on a ventilator. Her husband has it also. We were over there on Saturday and now Mady is not feeling good. I took her to the doctor and he put all of us on tamiflu just as a precaution. Please send some prayers her way. It is pretty scary stuff.

Movie quote "We're really doing it Harry!"
(this should be an easy one)

First time home owner!


Well we are really doing it. Ryan and I are buying a new home. We are super excited! The home is in Bountiful so we will be still be close to family. There is still a lot to get done but we are hopeful everything will go smoothly. I was curious if anyone out there in the blogging world knows anything about first time home owner grants. I have been searching on the internet, its a little overwhelming. So if anyone has any information, advice I would love it.

No guesses?

Well I guess you don't love this game as much as I do. The answer is First Wives Club with Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, and someone else I can't remember. Love that movie! Me and my two best girlfriends in High School used to watch that movie all the time. Total chick movie.

Hairdresser like mommy?


This is what I walked into the other day........

Sweet Princess we might need to take a few classes before you cut anyone else hair.

She at least left the top layer so that we could camouflage it.

Next time mommy will hide her scissors
