New Layout.....

Since Christmas is over I thought it time to get a new look for my journal. :) I might have someone make one for me, something I can keep forever, but we'll see. I do so love the Birdie layouts. :D

Daddy & The Kids

Kevin is home with the kids while I'm working. He called me and asked me if Lola laughs, humms, giggles and kicks while eating her dinner (solids). Yes, she does. Lola loves food! She still nurses great, but the kid loves solid food. I don't think we'll have a problem weaning her off the breast/bottle. :) He was just astonished at how happy she was when he was feeding her. He said he's never seen a happier baby. We're blessed!

12 Hours

Lola sleeps for 12 hours at night. O_O She may get up once for a change and a feeding, but that only takes 20 minutes and then she's back to sleep. Lex, on the other hand, is apparently afraid he's going to miss something. LOL! That boy is out of control. I'm just glad Kevin is home on vacation and HE'S been getting up with him. heheheheee!! I'm up helping Raven get ready for school. She has her first game tonight and practice right after school, so she wanted me to do her hair. We're done, and she's gorgeous!! Lots of pictures later.

Early Morning Posting

I went to bed at 8 last night as soon as I knew Lola was asleep. I came up here, crawled into bed, read a few chapters of my book and feel asleep. Lola slept till 5, got up, I changed her and brought her to bed with me. I normally don't like to do that, but Lex was in our bed and I didn't want him to wake up and me not be there. We came back to bed and slept till 6:30. I just put her back in her crib so I could make some coffee and while I was doing that she fell back to sleep. :) Wonderful. I feel so refreshed. Kevin can't understand why I don't want to stay up and watch t.v. with him, and I tell him that it's not that I don't want to, it's just better for me if I don't. I feel bad because we barely see each other during the week except for when the kids are asleep and then I'm either cleaning up or in bed. We've decided that we should take one night out of the week for just us. Kids in bed by 7 and we hang out on the couch together till 10 just watching a movie or something. It doesn't help that my brother and his girlfriend have been staying here because they haven't had electricity since last Thursday. O_O And Raven is sleeping on the couch. :/ Oh well. Things will get back to normal soon. I hope. O_O

So Lola is now in size 4 diapers and 9-12 months clothing. HAHAHAHAAA!!! She is so BIG!!!!!!!!! Hilarious. She will probably be slower at crawling and other things because she is so big. LOL! She can sit up on her own for a little bit, but she weeble wobbles all over the place and then falls over. So cute. She seriously is the sweetest baby ever. All smiles all the time. :D She's up to eating solids twice a day She's refusing to nurse in the mornings, she wants food. Well of course! Look at her!!!

She's a big girl!! LOL!! I still make most of her food. I made the apple sauce, rice cereal, bananas, avacados, carrots and peas. I found a jar of food that she really, really loves. Earth's Best Peas & Brown Rice. She loves it!! I'm a little nervous about giving her something that I haven't made myself, but I taste everything she eats and this stuff taste just like peas and brown rice. It's actually very good. My dog comes running when I sit down to feed Lola. LOL! He thinks it's great, too. :)

Raven got her uniform last night!! She is now officially a ROCKETS cheerleader. She was so embarrassed about how short the skirt was, but she loves it. :) I took a lot of pictures so I'll post some last at some point.

Lex is just now waking up so I got to go change him and get ready for the day. We're taking the kids to get their pictures taken with Santa!! Raven is not wanting to, but oh well! She has to! LOL! Teenager torture. >:-)

Someone Is Starting To Teethe!

Poor Lola. Her face is always flushed, she's drooling everywhere, she's chewing on everything and she's sleeping a lot! She went to bed last night at 8 p.m., woke up crying at 11:30, I went down to check on her and she was chewing on her blanket so I gave her some teething tablets and Tylenol, then i nursed her back to sleep. She slept till 5 this morning, I changed her and nursed her and she fell back to sleep and didn't wake up till almost 10 o'clock! O_O Not that I'm complaining, it's just that she must be in pain and that's why she's sleeping so much. I feel bad for her. She doesn't complain one bit. She just fusses when she needs a change or is hungry. If she's in pain she just makes this "Uh uh uh uh" sound, I give her some meds and she's perfect! We couldn't ask for a better baby!

"Oh My Goodness!"

That's Lex's new thing to say. He runs around saying it all the time. It's so darn cute! I love him. :)


I found this website a while ago. It's filled with really cute snack ideas for toddlers. Here's the link.....


I made the apple ornaments yesterday and Lex ate it all!!!! Wonderful!

Mastitis & Thrush -_-

Ouch. Both at the same time. I think we may be all done breastfeeding. :( The doctor wants me to try to just pump, pump, pump until both clear up and it doesn't hurt as much, but I told her that I'm not getting much at all, so I may just stop altogether. The she said NO!!!, don't stop, if pumping is no good, then just keep breastfeeding until I just can't any more or it hurts too bad to do it. It hurts so bad to breastfeed. I mean it really, really hurts. :( I'm gonna keep going though, cause I hear that's the best. We'll see what happens. I was hoping to go as long as possible because, well, it's cheaper. LOL!!! Doesn't matter to me though, we had a great run. Maybe I can keep going a little longer. Just gotta suck it up and deal with the pain. :(

My Little Piggy

Lola is a little piggy! She's up to eating solids TWICE a day now. I have a feeling she'll be off the boob a lot sooner than "normal". Hell....we still can't get Lex to give up his night time bottle! He was all done, but then Lola came home and he totally regressed and we can't seem to get him to give it up. I'm working on it though. I was thinking of putting a hair or a fuzz ball on the nipple, to gross him out, hoping that will do it. LOL! I'm so mean. Lola ate peas last night, apple sauce and cereal. Piggy! LOL!! I love her.

Lola & Lex

Both had appointments yesterday. Lola with her pediatric dermatologist and Lex with his doctor for his diarrhea. Stupid Derm....had to go back to the old one because she's a specialist. The new doctor I found won't even touch Lola's Hemangioma until she's 5! WHAT?! Nop fucking way am I waitng THAT long! So the new derm called the old derm to make sure they could get us in AFTER 2 p.m. when Kevin is home. I made it clear that we can not do morning appointments and if they couldn't do that then they should refer us to another pediatric derm asap. They'll see her in the afternoons from now on. :D Being a bitch pays off.

Lex looks great other than the constant diarrhea that we just can't seem to shake. Gotta take a stool sample in today. Gross. It's outside waiting. LOL!! He did great! He let the doctor examine him and didn't cry once! My big boy. :)

Today will be spent making cookie dough and some light cleaning. Not much cleaning to do because all it is is maintaining. I super cleaned last weekend due to that whateveritwas that we all had. I wanted to make sure that the house was not only clean, but sanitized as well, and it is. :)

Gotta run. Lex is waiting. Speaking of which....I have GOT to get him his own apron. How cute would he be?! I need a new one as well. Hopefully I'll get that matching set I've had my eye on. ;)

Never Again!!

I don't ever want to be in labor again. LOL! I was watching A Baby Story and had to change the channel because I was getting nervous thinking about Lola's birth. -shivers- SO PAINFUL! Never again. Sorry, Kevin.
