Where has the time gone? It's been 1.5 yrs since my last post.

I'll be quitting my job in a month to go back to school full time in the Fall. I'm pursuing a career in sonography and I'm sure that will fly by quickly too (15 mo program). So when I'm done -- bring me your bellies mommies!! Hahah!

Sara looks like a little lady now instead of a baby like her last picture. My big girl and her size 8 shoes (yes, that number is astounding to me!)
26 lbs and too heavy to tote around on my hip now. She's speaking in short sentences. She can go on and on in her gibberish and tell you her whole day spent with grandma while you grasp maybe 5 words and try to comprehend the gist of her entire story.

Here's to hopefully not extending my blog gaps to another 1.5 yr! No promises!

Dec 4: Snowy Houston?!?!?!

Here we are taking a picture with Kim's little snowman & our neighbor Zoe.

Sara out playing in the snow with Grandma.

Sara's helping us put up the Christmas tree decorations.
Sara fell and bit her tongue so of course she gets a popsicle to make it all better!

What a Crazy Couple of Months!

What a mess these last 2 months have been. Fortunately, I have a great support system to help out.

Early September, I went in for my prenatal check-up at 9 weeks. Yes, I got preggo again. Unfortunately, I had miscarried & the baby stopped growing at 6 weeks. The doc said it was one of those spontaneous things that just happens. If your body finds that it didn't create something perfect it knows that it can try again next time. It became a long process after we found out. I guess it's better to find out earlier, rather than later.

Then about a week later, my doc found a lump in my right thyroid. He ordered an ultrasound & then the specialist ordered a biopsy. I had a solid tumor that took up 1/2 my right thyroid. I have a family history of thyroid cancer (as well as breast cancer) and there was a 2/3 chance of it being cancerous. Oct 21 I had the entire thyroid removed & surgery went successful. My body's just having a hard time adjusting after the surgery with all the chemical imbalances, but should go back to normal in about a week. The wonderful news is that today I found out the pathology report showed the tumor was NOT CANCEROUS! That means I don't have to worry about radiation or any other cancer treatments! Yippee!

Vanessa, poor baby, came down with Swine flu also. She's had a hard time breathing and was hospitalized for a day. She's doing better now, but her doc finds it best to keep her on asthma preventive meds thru the winter. Hopefully, she won't be seeing the inside of any more hospitals.

It looks like we're in the market for another vehicle also. Kim's had his Infiniti for 2 1/2 yrs & it's been thru 2 engines already (1 recently replaced also). It died on the highway for me coming home from work a couple weeks ago. The fuel pump went out & was fixed. Then the Service Engine light came on because the catalytic converter went out last week. Now Kim's still in a loaner (about 2 mo) & has made a complaint to Infiniti about his car. His file is still under review, but either way the car has got to go. Luckily, his car is still under warranty, but it's only got 1,000 mi left before it's gone. With the way things are going with the car so far, we don't want to see what the bill would look like after the warranty expires.

My wonderful mom has come down to help out also with the baby since I am unable to pick her up from the surgery. Everyone's been super helpful and nice. And Kim wins "The Hubby of the Year" award for being so supportive in every way possible.

Our Little Cute Blessing

I am super lucky to have such a wonderful cute daughter! Sara is sporting her t-shirt that Kim bought her at Babies R Us. It says "My First Astros Tee" and her cute lil Converse sneakers. We didn't even get a chance to let her wear those shoes before she grew out of them. I managed to get her big feet into them just for the photo. She started getting cranky after a few minutes.

She's started to clap whenever you say "yeah!" She likes to shake her head "no" especially when she's done eating. She's also trying really hard to wave "goodbye" & "hi" to us when we leave for work & come home.

Sara was so hungry she just grabbed the bottle off her tray and started going at it. Now I'm trying to get her to hold it up herself. She can do it for a few minutes but then gets tired and starts sucking air. :( She'll get the hang of it.

She's kinda fussy these days with all her teeth. She's had her front bottom 4 teeth in for a while. Now all of a sudden, the top 4 are all coming in at the same time. It's really hurting her & we've been so thankful for the Orajel & Tylenol.

Kim's Redemption

I guess he's forgiven!  He admits to being a jerk even though he doesn't remember anything about that night.  The only thing he recalls is splashing me in the face with beer.

Depeche Mode Night

We went to the concert tonight & it was going great until the hubs became wasted.  Splashing me in the face with beer, tipping over in lawn chairs, walking around with his eyes closed,...  It took us 1 1/2 hrs to get from The Woodlands, to Richmond to pick up Sara, and finally back home in Katy.  Boy did that drive feel longer than it was.  I kept screaming at Kim to call his mom & let her know we were close.  I tried slamming on the breaks while on Westpark Tollway & rolling the windows down.  He just kept yelling back "I'm dialing" while the phone was under his leg.  He never called.  We get home & I told him to let the dogs out so they can go potty.  He comes back in from the garage & asked if he should load Sara in the car.  I asked "why?" since we just got home.  He replied "so we can take her to my mom's house."  I asked him where the dogs were & he said they were in the Mini.  I said "get them out of my car right now!"  I let the dogs in the backyard since obviously that was too complicated for Kim.  I didn't even bother to ask him to feed the dogs since I didn't want to see his interpretation of that.  Now I'm just hoping he'll be more coherent when Sara needs him tomorrow & I'm at work.
