December 30, 2005

Well the holidays are almost over and the New Year is right around the corner! All the guests have left, and we are slowly coming to a sense of "normalness" again! The visits were great though and we loved having everyone! Christmas this year was a BLAST!! Samuel was finally at the age where he loves opening for the last week and a hlaf before christmas he would say "You can open 1 wait for Christmas!" Like he would know when it was coming! haha! All he knew was he wanted to open the gifts! ( we had them all out under the tree early.....big year hopefully he'll know who 'santa" is.) Finally Christmas morning came and i went into his room to rouse him.........All I had to say was..."It's christmas..timeeeeeee to open presents" and he shot like a jackrabbit out of bed (stumbling all the while..he was still groggy) and ran and sat in front of the tree going....."Which one Sammy? Which one?".......we had to tell him we had to wait for Popo and Papa to come. Of course the adults had to have thier morning caffeine (coffee), so we made Sammy wait...*mean daddy* Of course I dont drink coffee, but everyone else did. So we finally sit in front of the tree and Sammy goes to town...the first one he opens is from Popo..a shirt from old Navy and he holds it to his chest and says..."oh thats sooo beautifullll".......then hands it to daddy and grabs another one....His favorite thing this year seemed to be a puzzle of the beach...he will sit for an hour and play with that thing......we thought it would be the "tumble time tigger".....he loved it.....but quickly forgets about it. *lesson learned* Anyway our first Christmas with McKayla went without incedent as well....she slept through most of it. She got a bunch of cute clothes!....and diapers. (amen!)....Other than that it will be a quiet New year at home! maybe play a game with the grandparents, and then hit the sack! hahahaha No no no I'm NOT getting old! :) Till next time!

WOW!!! Guess it has been a while since I last posted huh? I have gotten to FINALLY meet my daughter! She decided to make her appearance on November 11, 2006....Veteran's Day. It all started out pretty funny actually, I had gotten up to go shee shee for like the 18th time that night, and I went to lay back down, all the while thinking of how I wish she would come, and how i hoped she wasn't late....It was about 4:20 a.m. and I layed back down in bed.....about 10 min later, i felt this little "pop" and warm water just poured out....I knew I hadn't peed on myself since i had JUST gone....I jumped up out of bed..scared out of my mind...and ran in to the living room to wake up Brad. ( He had been sleeping out there on a futon bed for about 5 mos , because i kept getting up to pee, and I had to have the windows shut..which made him sweat)....I told him to get up, it was time, and he FLEW out of bed....I got my bag (already packed) ....and call Jane and heart is going a million times a minute....I am soooo scared..the contractions start hard.....we run to the has to stay behind and watch sammy... Jane is no where in sight and we are about to leave her...Dad starts hollerin down the hall for her to hurry up......she makes it in the nick of time........Brad and her are so excited....meanwhile I am soo frightened. We get into the car, and race to the hospital...Jane calls to let them know we are on our way. We go in through the emergency room, and are brought down to Labor and Delivery.....they see I am in active labor, and rush to prep a room. I am the only patient there at the time so the whole ward is there, and running around....they hook me up to all the monitors...check me for dialation ( i was 4 cm, for 48 hours..per my dr appt 2 days before)..I was at 4 and a half but the contractions were comin...and STRONG...I asked for my one right away1 (thank God)...and was great for about 30 min.....then I started feeling the contractions again....and hard! Then this unbelievable feeling to push came over me and I shouted I had to push......the nurses all ran in and checked me and said that yes I was ready to push but Ihad a small piece of cervix in the way..she was going to massage ito ut of the way....well....I was feeling every contraction FULL force, and her probing me hurt, so i just about punched her..all the while yelling I HAD to push.....after about 30 min of pushing out came McKayla Sue at 8:56 a.m weighing 6lbs 12 oz..and 18 inches long! She had a perfectly round head, and a head full of dark brown/red hair. She screamed and screamed! But was so healthy! We stayed in the hospital for 24 hours...(sammy stayed with Popo and Papa) Though they came to visit us later that night. Sammy was So shy and unsure of what to do. We came home, mommyhad a slight breakdown :) I was worried about her feeding....and she was so small. We had 4 blissful days to ourselves...then Grandma, great grandma, and grandma's fiance all arrived from PA. For 2 WEEKS! The visit was actually nice..even if it was a bit stressful.....then came my mom and step dad. Right now we are in the middle of that visit! It is going nice, but I am looking forward to having 'normalcy" return..whatever that may be. McKayla is 5 weeks old today, and life is good. She is a happy, healthy, HUNGRY baby, and its hard to imagine a life where we didnt have her! Sammy LOVES her very much, and asks to hold her all the time! We are truly blessed! I'll be back on more.....the baby calls to be fed!

i can't believe my little boy is 3 years old!

You would think he was 10 the way he acts sometimes! LOL!

We are supposed to go to Chuck E Cheeses tonight. (on his "official" birthday) Daddy is getting off of work at 3:30 so we can go and have a lot of fun!

I think both Brad and I are in shock at how fast the time is going, and how quickly they seem to grow up. You always hear people say that, but I don't think i understood until today!

The weather here was bad over the weekend, so Brad stayed home from work and we got to spend a bunch of family time together! *sigh* so nice ! I cant wait until he isnt working 60 hrs a week!

Soon, soon!

We have a pool party planned for this Saturday so Sammy can enjoy his bday with some of his friends! I will be sure to get LOTS of pictures~

Well, we got the crib all set up this weekend, we still have to go and buy the crib mattress! I cant wait to see it all together! We basically have the kids room set up.....but I would like to get some things on the looks so bare. I will have to post some pic's when we are done.
Anyway, my son is bothering me to play with him (as is his habit whenever mommy wants some time to herself) So I finish off by saying HAPPY BDAY TO SAMMY!

Update: Here are some pictures of his 3rd birthday party at Chuck E Cheese and his party at the pool over the weekend

A few pregnant shots! *yikes*

Here are a few pictures of my big ol' belly!!!

I am HUGE (or so it feels) with McKayla and she sits SOOOOO low!

BUT I still had to gross everyone out and make my way to the pool a couple times a week! ha ha! 6 weeks and 6 days to go until I get to meet my daughter face to face! I keep worrying about things going wrong, and I find I have to constantly remind myself that it is in the Lords hands. i will deal with whatever comes my way! I am so excited and so nervous at the same time! Had my doctor appt last friday, and unfortunetly Dr Miura had a case of food poisoning, and i had to see someone else. The good news is that it was the same doctor I saw when i had the viral menigitis (3 weeks ago)...She was GREAT!! I like the both of them so much! She said that McKayla was weighing in at 3 pounds, and that I was measuring perfect for my weeks, and size! *whew what a relief* Everyone keeps telling me how small i am and it gets me worried! LOL....All in all she said everything looked great and I was to come back in 2 weeks!

Man we are getting close!....

Popo threw me a surprise baby shower ( I was SHOCKED!!) We were supposed to be going to California Pizza Kitchen to eat lunch, and I went to get them to go, and walked into to a HUGE surprise!!..

Sammy's birthday is coming up here NEXT week!! i cant believe my "baby" will be 3!!! We are going to Chuck E Cheese's (per his request)...just me, dad, popo, and papa...since it falls on a wed. Then on Sat we are going to try to have a small pool party at the downstairs pool. Should be a blast! havent got his gift yet.....*sigh* so much to do! :)
Well....gotta run and take bug outta his high chair..he helped mommy make his first batch of chochlate pudding, and now he is enjoying eating it with his cute I tell ya! Love to all!

Well! Boy did I cut that short yesterday!! We had such a busy day.......where oh where do I begin? LOL
Wow..*sigh* WHAT a day!....Poor Dh calls me from work (around 11) and tells me he is on his way to the ER, but he is in to much pain to talk and tell me why. *startes freaking out at this point* You see in the 8 years I have know my DH he has NEVER gone to the dr!!...and he has had metal beams falls and slice open his back.....SO....when he said that and then couldn't tell me why....imagine! make a really long story short...I left Sammy with my father (on his birthday forcing him to cancel lunch plans he had with a friend)...and rushed to the hospital....what should have been a 20 min ride...turned into an hour and a half (got lost?!?!?WTF!?!?!)*the whole time I am freaking here*....FINALLY get there, and run into the ER to be told he is in XRay, and I hav to wait 1/2 hour. (HELLO, thats like eternity when you have no clue what is going on)...o.k to make the story MUCH shorter (minus all the ER drama) After numerous Cat scans and XRays, they said he had a kidney stone.....A KIDNEY STONE.. Say what?? Clean out my ears!?!? A @!$%#^&$ stone! .......O.k O.k O.k...the doctor DID say it was ALMOST (not quite) comparable to giving birth....and DH did look as miserable as I have ever seen him.....but come on! *sigh* So after 5 hrs there, we head home where I have to make arrangments to go back, get the other car, and take care of him and bug. ........Im gettin a massage this weekend darn it! LOL.....Needless to say, instead of going out for a nice dinner for my dad's bday, Brad stayed home in bed, and Jane, Dad, Sammy and I walked down to TGIFridays, and had a quick dinner there. Brad is doing MUCH better today! (Thank goodness) He is back at work, but we are unsure if he will make it through the day with all the pain he is feeling! Sammy's bday is coming up, which is another monkey on my back..*sigh* My boy is growing up SOOO fast! Well better run to my appt on the the other side of the island! (drive is more like it) LOL Peace out!

Well, it's Sept 20, 2005...Papa's birthday...and we are sitting in Hawaii, Brad is hard at work in kailua, and I am home with Samuel. Mckayla is still baking in the oven with 8 weeks or less to go.....sheis quite the mover. i swear I never felt someone kick so much, and roll. Even the tech at the sonogram said she had never seen a baby so quick and active. sammyis doing great. Trying to get him into preschool....just a matter of an opening! We want to get him in and adjusted before the baby comes , so he has a chance to get away for a bit.....we also want him to make some friends. He is very active and he loves to play with other kids! His talking is getting better, though he still has his own language. Especially when he gets excited! I sure feel blessed to have such a great family...and that extends to my family on the mainland as well. I sure miss them. I can't believe how blessed I am to be pregnant, and have such a wonderful son!! Anyway...hormones are starting to kick in and make me teary eyed, so I better stop before I cry all over the keyboard....besides I am hungry for some Corn pops and a yougurt! LOL!! Till next time TTFN!
