Elton your heart out!

Who says she can't enjoy a little Starbucks too? No's just whipped topping  and she loved every bit of it.

Tubby time



She's totally mastered using a fork and spoon but there's something about eating pasta with your hands that no child can resist.

The playroom is very slowly coming along. Finally got the photos for the 12"x12" frames I found on sale at Hobby Lobby. Now to find some chairs for Connor and his friends to sit in while they play video games and I'll be set!

Happy Birthday Amber!
Today the family attended a 6th birthday party for our good friend's daughter Amber. There was a 75' bounce house obstacle course, yummy food, and lots of fun and laughter. We all had so much fun that all 6 of us were in bed by 7:30pm!

If you're wondering where Kelsey might be, just look for Connor. She like his little shadow, following him everywhere and doing everything he does. Today I found her sitting next to him playing the Wii.

Every morning (just after the girls leave for school on the bus) Kelsey and I go into Connor's room for his wake-up call. Kelsey loves to get up on his bed and give him love until he wakes kind of alarm clock.

Kelsey and I had our first trip to IKEA...omg! My bestie Erin made the trip with us and you don't truly understand the immensity of this store until you actually enter it. I wish I had taken more photos but I was so time!

The girls helped me put together the storage unit I bought for Connor...well, they mostly played in the box.

Seizure monster strikes again! 

While watching television early last night it became quiet in Paige's room...finally, she was asleep. Then I heard this grunting sound. At first I thought it was Connor's tv then I got that feeling--the feeling I get every time one of the girls has a seizures. It must be my mother-of-a-epileptic instinct because every time I get the sinking gut feeling I open the door to find Paige convulsing on the floor. She had only been seizing for a few minutes before I found her and was able to administer the Diazepam. After 25 minutes, and no relief from the constant seizing, drooling, labored breathing, and vomiting, I decided to give her a second dose. Two minutes later she started to come out of it. 

She was up most of the night with stomach cramps (a typical side effect of the diazepam). She finally fell asleep around midnight and didn't wake up till after 12pm. As usual, she's very dopey and stumbles as she walks. Thankfully there was no paralysis with this seizure...found her just in time.


Instead of getting frustrated with her hands constantly in reaching in the sink while I try to do the dishes, I embrace it and treat it as a learning experience for her. I pull up a chair, hand her the sponge and let her 'play'.
