Happy Birthyday Stinky!!!!

342 - Copybw
Here is a newborn pic and one from her birthday last year.
2 year ago our miracle angel arrived.The reason we call her a miracle is because I had some trouble and they told me she would never be born.I started bleeding at about 6 weeks and it lasted a long time..We worried all the time that she would not make it but she did.She arrived 5 weeks early but was/is perfect in every way !
Dear Makayla
First off Happy Birthday !!!
You have brought so much happiness and joy to our family.
Mimi said you were brought to us to keep me going since my Lupus was rearing its head again.I agree you keep me going.
It has been wonderful this last year watching you grow and become more confident with everything you do.
It is such a joy to wake up and hear your sweet voice calling and I am really glad you call Deanna to change them :)
Your language is growing and your personality as well.
As for your hair ...well that is inherited but I promise to keep lots and lots of neat bows and hats for you to wear.
We love you
Mommy and Daddy

A summer/swimming PSA

A friend posted this PSA about children's swimwear, and I never even thought about it before I read it. This makes perfect sense. Please share if you'd like.

These are her words, so I am copy/pasting it exactly how she wrote it:

I do this every year, and it's getting to be that time again... if you've heard it before, pass it on to someone who hasn't.

I used to swim with a Master's team and one night they were doing deep water rescue drills with the lifeguards at the same time as our workout. I was doing laps in the deep end and the trainer tossed a baby doll, clad only in a diaper, into the deep end of the pool.

I peered through the water as the doll sank, and I kid you not, you could *not* see that baby in twelve feet of water. This was in a basically empty pool without a lot of other kids splashing and reflections from light and I was *in* the water and STILL couldn't see it. It was a vague pale blur in the water, and it made me shudder to think that could be a real child down there.

Now on to the PSA - I talked with the trainer afterward and he said he wished there were no such things as kid's swimsuits in white, sea green or turquoise blue, because those colors blend right in to the pool bottom in most pools. He said to dress your kids in the brightest freaking colors you can find - neon pinks, oranges, reds, just for that increased visibility factor in the water.

Easter Candy

Grass tennis as Mack calls it

Cha Cha Changes....

When we moved we tossed or donated so much stuff it is unreal.I dont like clutter and it gets on my nerves.I am also sick and tired of the food my kids waste.Soooooo cha cha changes are coming starting today.I have been saying it for some time that I am going to toss it if I havent used it in 6 months or if the clothes have not been worn in a long time.I also want to calculate what we spend on food and household stuff for a month.If anyone has a system they use please share with me.
So today we will take inventory of the food we have and start with how much money it is worth.
Then everyday write down what we spend on food.
Wish us luck

Soooooo here is the latest..

So here is the story.I talk to my parents every single day.Sometime more than once a day.I had been calling since wednesday and no one answered.We are 7 hours ahead so I was getting worried since we talk every single day
My mom finally called thursday evening. My dad woke at about 4 am thursday and thought he was having a stroke.He was seeing red spots etc so they went to ER.I am not sure if by ambulance or what.My dad is fine and they think it is vertigo but changed some heart meds as well.They didnt call sooner so I would not be worried but holy cow it worrys me.
I hate being so far away it really sux.
