She is two today...

She is two today.... 
But not so long ago...she was teeny tiny. She was my only induction and scariest delivery (maybe someday I'll share all of my birth stories). Born at 6 pounds, 3 ounces. 
She is my third daughter (and was called "Sweet Pea" by her sisters for the longest time!)...

She completed our family

She was dedicated at our house when she was six weeks old by Uncle Jim

She was born with the least amount of hair *(and the only one born blonde)

She is the only one that didn't take a binky (pacifier) and sucked her thumb until she was five months old

She has always been my smiley baby!

She could not be contained and actually climbed before she could walk

And she walked the earliest of all three (the day before she turned 10 months old)

Recently she has decided she doesn't like her diaper on...

(yes, she's asleep without her diaper her chair)

She makes me laugh with her cheese grin

She loves to color!

She has the most beautiful eyes and eyelashes

and a curl that flips out on her left side...

She is two today.

And the best surprise God has ever blessed us with

Baby girl, you may be the most curious of all three of our kids, but you bring us so much joy! 
Happy Birthday my sweet sweet love!

Change of plans

It seems we have been thrown a curveball this week.  This morning Skylar woke up and her nagging post nasal drip cough was sounding worse.  After each cough she started gasping for air so we rushed her down to our pediatrician (who is still an hour away because we love him so much and don't want to switch).  She had also complained of her ear hurting.  Turns out my suspicion that it was something more serious than a cough was right.  She has an ear infection and pneumonia.  She has reactive airway disorder so it seems whenever she gets the same upper respiratory viruses as everyone else, they turn into something more.  She is on some pretty strong antibiotics so we're trusting she will feel better in the next day or so. It took three pharmacies to find it so either it's in high demand right now or it's not a usual "stocked" item.  Either way, I am grateful that we eventually did find it.  Now I'm in search of their chewable probiotics they are used to taking.  Our store stopped carrying them and we ran out about two weeks ago (coincidence?? I'm not so sure).

Bailey is 2 today and I'm hoping to get a birthday post together, but we'll see.  She started coughing this morning so we are hoping it resolves without any help.

I had intentions of posting five recipes for budget friendly meals this week, but it looks like I need to spend some time getting my family on the mend.

Sorry about the change of plans (but I'm sure you understand).

When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade.
Or in our case, when life hands you pneumonia, you make forts.
