Lacie takes a sick day. in pictures

she doesn't look sick!

Crap on croup!

Ugh, Lacie has croup again. well, it is better than swine flu, but still. Dr. E. says she is most likely getting that due to allergies and she will most likely get it again thru the winter months. Not a whole lot to do for it. It is not too bad, but when she does cough, Good Lord! she sounds so bad!

i knew it would happen eventually

Lacie has been battling the on and off cold. Blech!
let's see, she went about 6 months with no illness! so i guess i cant complain. but it started about 2 weeks ago when i got a call from daycare not too long after i dropped her off. yeah, Lacie was projectile vomitting. fabulous. *sigh* so i picked her up and hoped and prayed that she would not barf in my new car.... i had no interest in having the barf smell take over the new car smell. thankfully, she held it all in. so we got home, i covered the couch with sheets and towels and gave her some Sprite. 10 minutes later, she was running through the house, then stopped.....and hacked up the sprite. trying to catch barf from a toddler is no fun. thankfully, she barfed twice, and that was the end of it!
of course, the 24 hour rule kept her from daycare the next day. so she and i went visit Aunt Kelly at work then went to Paw Paws to get brother to come home.
well, now we are battling a really bad cough and cold. off to Dr. Elofson we go!

Mommy's heart is heavy this afternoon.

i happened to stumble across a blog today that has made me so sad. I don't know this person, but my heart hurts for her so much. I don't know the entire story, but her baby was born very very early and he did not survive. I can not even imagine going through something like that. i just can't. i would be a complete total mess if i lost my child. no parent should have to lose a child. i would probably be like Izzie on Grey's Anatomy when Denny died. i would be plastered to the floor and wouldn't have the strength to move for a while.

her blog also had a link to a video of someone else who went through the same thing. it was an 18 minute video, and it was like a letter to her baby. but her baby was born super early, and he lived for 26 days. the video was of their short journey.

well, by the end of the video, i was a teary eyed sobbing mess, sitting at my desk at work.

all i want to do now, is run to daycare and get Lacie and just hold her tighter than ever and hug and kiss her. i am so greatful to God that i have such a sweet wonderful rambunctious baby girl! and i cant for get my "baby" boy! who is almost 8! but, he is not a baby any more and is currently making his rounds this summer at all the grandparents' houses. i miss him, but i know he is in good hands and is making memories with the grandparents!

so, when you get home, hug those babies extra tight tonight and thank the good Lord for these prescious days as they go by fast.

more "she cans"

More things that she, she being Lacie, can do:

-whine and cry and throw fits.
-drink the water straight from the faucet in the bathtub. nice.
-fall off the couch head first and laugh about it
-drink tons of juice when she gets home
-blow bubbles by herself, even though half the time the stick from the bubbles gets in her mouth
- watch Dora Dora Dora the Explore for hours straight.
-climb down the front steps with her hands full
-climb into her carseat by herself
-open the refridgerator by herself!
-put the milk jug back on teh shelf, something she insists on doing.

just a few new ''can dos'

where has the time gone!

this first pic is of the happiest child on earth! Daddy let her play with his XBOX 360 control!
this pic is at the dinner table.

Lacie is almost 2 and a HALF! she keeps me so busy! she is quite the talker. you can almost hold a 3 sentence conversation with her. not a whole lot going on these days, well, nothing out of the usual. Lacie is just growing up right before my eyes!

her current interests are: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Einsteins, Teletubbies and Dora the explorer.
she loves to eat: hamburger, corn, mashed potatoes, chips, cool whip, biscuits, eggs, GRITS
latest word/sayings: NOT NICE! I LOVE YOU! DADDY DID IT! or mommy.

she is already starting to pick out her own pajamas! ha! i put a gown on her tonight and she flipped out! she wanted the DOra one and ended up wearing strawberry ones. but she calls them apples.

she is also fascinated with Shoes! ha! go figure! she loves flip flops. or as she calls them : flee flots.

she can count to 13 but always skips 4. i guess she just doesnt like that number.

she can now open the fridge on her own! ha! she want to be the one who puts the milk or juice back in there.

oh, and she likes to call herself "C C"

see ya real soon!

the last few months

ah, the last few months have been extremely busy, i just dont have time to sit here and update and take my time. so, i decided i will attempt it today. i am back at work after easter and so far the day is not busy.

Lacie is just sprouting up! she is getting so tall and she is sooo SMART! you can almost carry on a short conversation with her now. she now says I LOVE YOU MOMMY (or daddy, pawpaw, etc).
she can tell you who most people are if you show her a picture. even people that she doesnt see very often, like Uncle PJ.....although she calls him TeeTay.

She loves Little Einsteins on TV. and Dora and Cars.

she still wont let me put her hair in a pony tail. hopefully she will get over it eventually. her hair is getting soooo long and i refuse to cut it. i dont like short hair on girls.

I think we are getting close to potty training..... i plan on buying some pull ups soon......we'll see how well that goes.
