2 copays and a prescription

Tatum 5yr check up - Weighed in at 42 lbs and 42 in tall. She is 50% in both.... Everything was great except a rattle on her right side.... Last week AShlyn had walking pneumonia, so it came as no surprise. Dr. told me to watch for a couple of days, if she gets worse start her on the steroid.

Tyler 6m check up - Weighed in at 19.5 lbs and was 26 1/2 in long. He was 70% in weight and 50% in height. That is why everyone thinks he is HUGE..... he is short conpared to his weight. He has been coughing and had a runny nose, so it was no surprise to me that he has a double ear infection and walking pneumonia. Not contagious since there is no fever, but you can tell he doesn't feel well. So he is on the steroid as well. He also got 4 shots and a liquid...
I also talked to Dr. Johnson about him not taking a bottle and not eating. We are going for a Swallow study.... This will show us is there is a blockage or anything. We already know he has reflux and this could be a reason that he will not take a bottle.... Hopefully we can start him eating food soon... I have been trying for a month and he gags and projectile vomits it everywhere, everytime... TMI I know

He is trying to sit on his own, and is rolling over both ways and sometimes more than one roll at a time.
When he is not sick, he is a good baby. But he is definitely a MOMMA baby. I love it!

More coming soon!

ok, so i have a new computer and cannot figure out how to resize my photos.... therefore, my header looks silly....
if anyone has suggestions, please tell me!



Well, it has been way to long since i posted last. My life is flashing before me..... Tyler will be 6 months old on Monday, Tatum turned 5 this past March and Ashlyn will be 4 at the end of August.
These last several months have been a whirlwind....
We have been to the doctor more times than i can count with Tyler. At 9 weeks old, Tyler got sick for about 6-7 weeks straight. He ended up having several ear infections, which almost led us to get TUBES.... and he had RSV. Luckly we did not have to go to the hospital, but we did have to do numerous breathing treatments at home. During this time we had to do this with Ashlyn several times as well.
Tyler rolled from belly to back at 4 months old, and then he rolled from back to belly at almost 5 months. He is now rolling all the time and i am sure that he will be rolling to get things soon.

OUR BIGGEST PROBLEM!!!!! He will NOT take a bottle.... Did you read that clearly, he WILL not. Do you know how hard that makes it for me. Luckly he nurses in about 5-7 minutes and is then done. But it does make it very hard to leave him for a long period.

The girls are loving him more and more everyday... They are so sweet to him.
Several days ago i heard him crying in the living room, i went to see what the problem was.....
What did i see.... Tyler completely naked on the floor and Tatum trying to change his diaper. She was really being so sweet to him, but he definitely didn't like it!!!

I will post pictures soon. Tyler has changed so much in the past 6 months.
At 4 months he weighed in at 15.13 and then i had to go back two weeks later for another ear check and he was at 17lbs.

I am sure he is pushing 18 lbs now. He feels like he is starting to level out some. He has NO rolls, he is just thick!!!

Thats all for now. Will post more soon!

Tylers 2 wk pics

My sweet friend from church Alicia Hale has a photography business. She came over and took pictures for us. Here are a few she gave me for the blog. Thanks Alicia, we love them!

The Girls Christmas Program

They are in there somewhere. This is all of the 3k, 4k, and 5k classes at their school.
Tatum with her class.

Ashlyn with her class.
Tyler was 1 1/2 weeks old at their program. For those of you that are thinking it, yes i went and so did Tyler. He was tightly in the sling, so noone could touch him, but i have figured out that we just have to keep on going. There is no slowing down when you have a 3 and 4 year old. They did so great singing.
Great job girls. We love you so much!

The First 2 weeks home

The first 2 weeks home were such a blur for me. I was so exhausted and still very swollen. It hurt to walk from the c-section and the swelling. My feet were so huge they wouldn't even fit into crocks... Luckily the girls were still in school, so that was a great help. Once my mom would pick them up, I would either feed Tyler again, or go straight to sleep. I think atleast every other night we went out driving to look at Christmas lights. I couldn't drive for 2 weeks and for me that was the worst torture ever! For those of you that know me well, you know i am not a home body. All these people that told me the third one just falls right into place.... I am not sure what they were on when they were telling me that, but not the case here. It has been much more of an adjustment for me to have 3 than to have 2. Maybe that is because Tatum was only 17 months old when Ashlyn was born, I dont know... but this sure seems harder.

Our first night home

We had a good first night home. He woke up 2 times during the night. I slept in the recliner since it was easier for me to get up and down from. The girls did great with him being at home. Josh was still off on Friday, so it was nice to have him here. We had to take Tyler in Friday to our doctor for a weight check. He was still at 7.14

Hospital Pictures

Here are a few pictures from the hospital of Tyler. We were there for 4 days. When we left on Thursday Dec 4th, he weighed 7lbs 14oz. We were ready to get home and see the girls, but i was nervous at the same time.
