We have a busy week ahead of us. While Jonny is finishing up with school and tests, I’m preparing the house for our trip to Vegas. I’m determined to scrub the entire house and have the all the laundry done by Friday. I also have to go shopping and get some clothes for Kylie. She hit a growth spurt and doesn’t fit in anything, so I have to find some good deals and buy almost a whole new wardrobe for her.
Scary Night March 11, 2009
Night time is really hard for me to sleep so I’m usually awake on the couch watching T.V or reading a book. Last night as I got up to the restroom, I saw a dark figure of a man in our backyard patio reaching for the sliding glass door. I screamed as loud as I could and ran into the bedroom to wake up Jonny. Jonathan immediately opened the bedroom window and starting yelling as loud as he could while I grabbed his phone and called 911. We heard the guy shout something as jumped over the neighbors fence. The police came, took my statement and investigated around the house and back yard. The most scary part about all of this was the sliding glass door was unlocked!! If I hadn’t spotted the dark figured man when I did, who knows what could of happened. I am so grateful that we had family home evening early that night and the spirit was strong in our home. I know that Heavenly Father was watching over us last night and we are blessed that something worse didn’t happen.
Another Hurdle March 8, 2009
Kylie was diagnosed with alpha thalassemia when she was first born. Its a blood disorder that affects the normal production of hemoglobin which causes low iron. She hasn’t had to take any medication and its not severe at this point. We don’t know if Jonny and I are both silent carriers. If we are, there is a 25% chance that my pregnancy won’t go to full term. The baby’s blood would be so mutated that there wouldn’t be any production of hemoglobin and would cause utero.
My last doctor appointment after the doctor listened to the heartbeat, he felt my uterus and said “Hmmm” he felt again and asked if I was eating enough. I told him I was eating about 2ooo calories a day and asked him what was wrong. He said my uterus was smaller that usual for being 26 weeks along. I remembered when I went in for my ultrasound and the technician said that the baby was small and pushed my due date 2 weeks back. He told me that he is concerned that the baby isn’t growing fast enough and wants to start monitoring his/her growth a little more extensively.
Now I freaked out!! I’m doing all my research about the blood disorder and driving myself crazy in the process. I’m calling the doctor on Monday and see if I can get blood work done on the baby and myself.
Kylie’s Hair February 16, 2009
Kylie’s hair is finally starting to grow! This morning in the bath Daddy couldn’t help himself and gave Kylie a brand new do.
I think its going to be a new baby trend…he he
We had a wonderful Valentines Day. I cooked Jonny a nice 4 course meal and he surprised me with a trip to Bogus Basin. He was able to get the entire 3rd floor of the Lodge all to ourselves. There was a movie projector set up with popcorn, candy and all the seasons of Friends. Candles were lit everywhere with sparkling cider and roses. He is such a sweetheart!
I am so blessed to be married to a wonderful man! He is so cute and so romantic. He always manages to surprise me at every opportunity he gets.
this is the dinner that I cooked. The pictures are not in order but it went salad,scallops,lamb and cheesecake
Fun Sunday February 2, 2009
Today has been wonderful and busy! We had to get up early for church and when we came home, we had to scramble to get everything ready for our Superbowl party. I was afraid there wasn’t going to be enough seating but forgot to include the kitchen chairs in my head count. We watched the game, cheered and chit chatted with each other. I am so grateful that everyone ate plenty of food because we had no room in our fridge for leftovers.
Kylie did great with everyone and was so funny to watch. Anytime there was music on a commercial, she would dance around and give a big cute grin to anyone who would watch her. What a show off!
I’m still on bed rest but cheated today to get the house and food ready. I couldn’t just watch Jonny do it by himself. He has been such a lifesaver these past couple of weeks with picking up the slack. Every day when he gets home, he will clean the kitchen and make sure I have everything I need. When all the house work is done, he usually sends me off to bed for a late afternoon nap…
What a sweetheart, I think I’ll keep him around a little bit longer 😉
