Life as I know it

This month and the last bit of Feb have consisted of
Reags being sick
Isaac being sick
Our first pack meeting...The Blue and Gold Banquet
Idaho Falls, maybe even just Idaho's first (not certain though) Caucus 
Making my own fabric covered button earrings AND clips
Watching some of my most favorite kids...Isaac and I had a "sleepover" at their house.
(I use to nanny for them.)
Taking Reagan to the park for her first time. She was fine with that.....
Getting ready to go visit our favorite people!!!!

Poor little one had to get her blood drawn. And also needed a catheter to take a urine sample. sad. At least we can figure out how to help
these little ones in this era.
She had a fever for a week, was miserable, and would snuggle with us.
all signs something was not right.
Gramps (a.k.a. her pediatrician) finally decided it was time to look into this further.
He said he was trying not to be a grandpa and was really trying to put off having to have her
have blood drawn etc.
The tests showed that she had a bladder infection. Antibiotics cleared things up
and my babes is back!
There are MUCH worse things parents have to go through.

I did had some pictures of the Banquet. Mostly of our boys' AMAZING cake decorating skills.
However, due to my late blog posting I didn't save the pics. I thought I had downloaded them, so I erased them. Sad.

 the line wrapped around the school. in the snow.
patiently waiting


 His name is Isaac, like the hubs. So since Reagan
was born he always says, "She gets confused and thinks I'm her dad too."
 we were watching a show and he pulled one of these numbers. 
to say I love him doesn't fully express how deep my feelings are for this kid.

Park...we will be seeing a whole lot of you from now on.

A few in between pictures

 pro: she can pick things up (i.e. food) and put them in her mouth
con: she can pick things up (i.e. buttons) and put them in her mouth
 i can't say it enough...she loooooooves babies.
 "china man smile"
 it does not matter where or when, she ALWAYS is in complete heaven when being feed a bottle
without fail. her eyes close. her hand go immediately to her eyes to rub and rest.
(this was in the VERY loud Caucus)
 she looks "bite size" on this
 my new "must have"... Bountiful Basket.
this was a friend's I picked up.
I had basket envy
 mom sometimes I think it is fun to pull myself up on things...
that's fine

ps.....flash back. she's so beautiful. truly.

I'm sure you'd like to know...

here are the rules:
1. post these rules.
2. post a photo of yourself and 11 random things.
3. answer the questions set for you in the original post.
4. create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them.
5. go to their blog and tell them they've been tagged.

Here goes...

1. being wrinkly, long natural finger nails, and the feel of newspaper all give me the creeps,
even imagining them as I type  gave me a yucky shiver

b. I turned 11 in Taiwan, my cousin, who is more like a sister, Jessica Kristen
invited me to go with her family. Very fond memories.

3. I secretly and genuinely want to never stop having children.
Realistically though, I'm sure we'll draw the line around five or six.
I also realize there might be moms reading this thinking, YOU ONLY HAVE ONE...just wait...
but seriously. Bring it on.

d. I never thought I was "crafty" but a year into my marriage I realized..
I love crafts. I love being in control of my decor, or 
accessories for me or my babe, and would LOVE to create
onesies for Reagan or refashion old clothes for myself.
as well as quilting, croqueting etc. get the idea :)

5. It never gets easy, for me, to read that Dumbledore dies. 
(P.s. I could listen to Jim Dal read Harry Potter almost every minute)

f. There are few things I adore more than taking pictures

7. I have the largest imagination of all mankind. Not in a good way.
In a very unhealthy, planning a get away for me and
my baby in case someone tries to hijack us in our car while Isaac runs in to get a movie, kind of unhealthy.
(you think I'm joking... there are names I could give that would validate the truthfulness of this)

h. I dream of warm(er) places to live

9.  Alfalfa Sprouts, fish, and cupcakes make my tummy smile

J. Road trips, or any trips for that matter, make me the happiest

11. I sincerely don't think twice about the size or luxury of  my future home
but I continuously imagine getting my hands on it and make it my own.
the possibilities...

My favorite activity to do on a sunny day, would have to be a day at the pool.
picnics and walks are fantastic also

I blog to keep a history with pictures. As well as to share my passions and "goings ons" with others
as well as getting to have a part in others' lives.

Taking a drive to clear my head,
 and saying a private prayer
 would truly be the best way to relieve frustration/anger.
Instead I choose to act like a child and pout and cry.

My perfect day would be a toss up between a day at home with nice weather so I could
 be productive by doing crafts
as well as playing in the sun with my baby and hubs.
A road trip not too far away to somewhere that would provide my family
with new activities and food. Large zoos and Indian food?

My ideal vacation would be one of warmth and relaxation (a beach...) with a few days of
fun activities.
Along with nights filled with rain storms.
Oh and....only purchasing a one way ticket.....

Dream job....WELL. I truly worked in one of my dreamist of all dream jobs
when i worked as a orthodontic assistant. best.ever.
Although my truest desire for an occupation I have come to find within myself is..
photography. mmmm I would love that

Biggest pet peeve. Either people talking/being obnoxious in a movie you overpaid to enjoy
bad drivers.

too many favorite tv shows and movies...however if I had to choose..gun to my head...
Emperor's New Groove

Worst fear?  easy.           mice

Hospital overnight?   Only to have a baby. I'm not sure if that counts.
So yes...but so have so many before me for this same reason.
only time
