I got a new sewing machine for Christmas last year. I just barely pulled that sucker out last night! It feels so good to have my stuff out again, and I have my stress reliever of crocheting my blankets!

Unfortunetly her concept of time is a wee bit off.

Whew, how times flies by!
boogie boarding! Man we couldn't get this kid out of the water! He LOVED it!
but mostly she just loved sitting on the beach. We'll have to remember to stock up on beach toys before our next trip!

Arina has been to two dance classes. Daddy took her last Friday because i had an appointment with Jax in LA. He kept texting me, telling me she was a maniac! That she wouldn't sit still and she was all over the place. I was a little disappointed, but when I got home and watched the videos he took, I think he over reacted a little bit. He is expecting her to be perfect already, and she's only 2!

Even though there are some things I just have to splurge on, I'm one that rarely pays full price for something. I LOVE Old Navy and The Childrens Place, but I almost always get great deals on their clothes.

Here you go Tracie. Jax talking. This is the last video I have of his voice. You can see by his fat face that this was right before he was trached. When I watched it tonight before posting it, I had all 3 boys come in when they heard his voice. Carter was like, "oh I miss his voice".

Carter helping Jax ride the merry-go-round.
You all know that Jax trach has been a love/hate relationship for me. Many people say, I love it because it saved my child's life. It did indeed save my child's life, but I still hate it. It has robbed me of my beautiful son's voice, and no, he has not, and will not, figure out how to talk over it. He just doesn't have the strength or comprehension. I've posted pics of me sleeping on the floor in Jax room, because I've had to suction him all night long. I can easily say that I have slept less since having the trach, than in my whole adult life combined!

Even the smallest leotard and tights I could find were too big, and the shoes, ginormous! But she knew where she was going, and she was ready!
I will admit that I was petrified! I lay in bed last night with all kinds of thoughts running through my head.
Sometimes the wand went in the mouth, and sometimes when the teacher sat her down she would stand back up and follow her.

Life is just a tad bit crazy right now!
Most little boys play little league, but this boy is a little different. We found his amazing talent for baseball when he was just 4. Right now at 9, he plays with 11 and 12 year olds, and is still one of the best on the team. Here we've started private catchers classes, (the position he excels at) because this kid isn't in it for fun. He has high hopes of a college scholarship, and of course he talks about the major leagues. Now this kid knows that the majors is mostly about luck! There are a thousand kids with the same talent, but only the lucky one's will be seen! So he has a back up plan. He wants to be a pharmacist!
Right now we are knee deep in All-stars. Last nights game was a nailbiter. Carter was hit in the arm with a foul ball. He actually cried, and even after throwing a few times, he had to come out. This kid NEVER comes out of the game, so I was concerned that he was really hurt. I mean the kid was plowed over at the plate and stayed in the game. After that play one of his coaches nicknamed him "the rock". Catcher can be a dangerous position!
