Baby Kody Day 77


Quick update and post……I have been so behind editing pictures that I just needed to post what I had and move on.  I am missing about 10 days between day 44 and 54 and then some after day 65…..but I will find them and quick sneak them in at somepoint.  But moving on.

Things have been crazy around here.  We’ve been busy with the “daycare” or if it’s considered daycare.  Baby Kody and his sister are the newest addition.  Baby Kody is 2 weeks old…sleeps most of the day….and likes to be swaddled!  Easy baby.

It also gives me quite the  chance to snap some pictures of a newborn.  This pose has been one that I have wanted to try and get better at.  My first couple attempts were no go’s.  Finally I got it, but I couldn’t get the paci away from him.  We will keep trying.

Rylee Update

We officially got rid of the pseudomonas after just one cycle of Tobi Nebs…..Lucky us.  We do however still have a cough, which they treated with bactrim…..But soon after the flu hit the house and we were down and out for about a week.  Rylee is finally recovered and starting to eat again.  She has been quite timid with food.  Her cough is still present, however her lungs sound crystal clear…so we are heading to the allergist to see if that could be the cause of the drainage/runny nose(clear)/cough….Hopefully we can figure something out so we can start enjoying this nice weather.

As for nice weather…..It was here all week long…Will continue tomorrow, but then we drop back down to the 30’s….Total bummer but hopefully in a week or so we can have warmer temps and we can get out of this house.  I am really hoping it happens soon and the weather guy is wrong..

So busy busy busy and lack of posts on my part.  It’s just life here.  Crazy busy

Days 59-65

A week of pictures – We took in story time at the museum and colored with chalk, played with friend Nolan in the music room one day, took pictures of Baby Delaney, Played outside, Ate spaghetti, Climbed a rock wall, and flew to outer-space.  Whew!  The pictures aren’t in the exact day order, but I am so far behind that I am just trying to get a picture posted from each day!

Days 54- 58

A quick post to work on catching up…….A picture of baby Delaney, Rylee riding Kota’ the dino at the museum, Hunter digging for dino bones (Lovin the goggles), Funny faces while playing outside by Rylee (don’t mind the runny  nose and dirty face – It seems to be constant right now!) and finally Cheese’s from Mya!

Book Review: God Gave Us So Much

I have been given the chance to review the book God Gave Us So Much. I have reviewed a variety of the books in the "God Gave Us" Series and must say that I love them each. They are a great reminder of what God has done and broken down into a simple version that even a 2 year old can understand.

God Gave Us So Much is a Limited Edition Treasurery that consists of three of the books from the series: God Gave us the World, God Gave Us Love, and God Gave Us Heaven. It also includes an attached ribbon to mark your place if reading to little ones.

The stories are all wrote from the perspective of little cub. She mainly asks a variety of questions in which the adult in the story always answers and explains how God has given us the things.

The illustrations are bright and cheery and the children enjoy looking at them. The 4 year old I read the story to took the book immediately after and re-told each story.

I really enjoyed the story God Gave Us Heaven. I feel that children do not always grasp the idea of heaven and what happens when a person dies. This story however explains it in a very simple manner that still keeps the gloriousness of Heaven alive. This book would be a great story to have around when having to help a child greive a loss or preparing them for a major loss in their lives.

Overall this book is a great asset to our collection.
