Day 164

Happy Memorial Day everyone. We went to Britta's gave today. It seems like it has been longer then 5 months since she passed away.

I hope you are able to visit your loved ones graves, and of course remember the fallen Heros who have died while fighting for our freedoms.
This week my brother graduated from Preschool
 He kept calling his diploma a "telescope". Hope he doesn't do that when he graduates high school.

and we celebrated my dad's birthday.
We went to my Gram's cabin for Memorial Weekend.
The weekend was full with:
Eating..... not much else to do in the mountains.
My mom painted the girls' fingernails.... everyone but mine. I am apparently not old enough yet.
My cuz Blair is terrified of "bugs" and she squealed  most of the time.
I talked to my other cuz Caleb a bit and filled him in on the family.
My brother and sister along with all the cousins looked like street urchins after playing outside all day, and they would crash after their bath. Exhibit A:

Mom and I would sit out on the porch. She would read while I listened to the breeze blowing through the tall trees. The wind almost sounds like horses, it is so loud and distinguished.
Dad, mom and I got to watch my favorite show.... Revenge
We do not have TV at our house, but there are a couple shows my parents like to watch on line.
If you have not seen Revenge you must watch it. Mom started watching it while she was in the hospital recovering from Britta and me, and soon got my dad hooked.  She would talk to the nurses at the hospital about the show and that got me curious. Since I was in the NICU when she started watching I had to catch up on my own. You can see the old episodes here.

I will give you a run down:
A: Emily. Her father was framed for an act of domestic terrorism. and she is seeking "revenge."
B: Daniel. Emily's Fiance and son of the Grayson's (G and H in the picture)
C. Jack. Emily is really in love with him
D. Nolan. Her partner in crime and friend of her father's. Nolan promised her dad he would look out for Emily.
E. Decklin. Brother of Jack, and was the boyfriend of Charlotte (F)
F. Charlotte. Daughter of the Grayson's
G and H. Victoria and Conrad Grayson. Owners of Grayson Global and framed her father.
I can't write too much more with out giving most of the plot away- but it is a fantastic show. You have got to watch it. ...and I think Jack (C) is a hunk!

Day 158

Hi everyone! Sorry I have not posted in a while- I misplaced my password again. I have got to find a better place then my diaper to keep all of my important paperwork.
Lots has happened.

My gram bought a house in the mountains, and we go to go up the weekend before last. My mom and dad brought my oxygen and monitors to make sure I could handle the thinner air due to the elevation, but I was a champ. (shoulder brush)  In the middle of the night while we were there my aunt Laura started having contractions. She drove back down to the valley and luckily made it back in time! She had her baby soon after- so now I have a new cousin. Welcome Caleb to our crazy family! I need to get him alone and we can discuss some things. Caleb and I are basically the same size, too bad he is not a she because I could double my wardrobe.

I went to the doctor and am now 8lb 9oz. My  pulmonologist told my mom I should be gaining twice as much weight as I am..... what does she want me to do? Sit in Manteca and hope that I absorb it? Besides I like it when people ask my mom how old I am, and she says "5 months." They get the funniest looks on their faces. The doctor ordered me a sleep test to measure my oxygen levels at night to make sure I am not having apnic spells at night.

My brother has been playing soccer and he scored a goal his last game. .....It was a goal for the other team mind you, but a goal none the less. We were very proud! I sure like watching my brother and sister. They never stop moving which is good when you have such a short attention span like me. My brother is one interesting kid.  

My Aunt Amanda and Aunt Stephanie had a party for my mom. They called it a shower. It was the best party I have ever been to because soon after we got there I realized the party was all about ME!
I got to meet family and friends. Most of them held me but all of them said how cute I am and how small and adorable I am. It was awesome.... I could have stayed there all day.

My mom and I have been writing a book about Britta. We are really excited about it and she is going to self publish it. She found an illustrator named Patti. I did not get to meet her, but my mom says she is as cute as a button and so talented. We are all very excited. I will let you know the progress.

I found my fists. I didn't know I had these awesome little things on the end of my arms, but I do and they taste so good. If you get hungry you should check our your thumbs. I like them so much.

 Here I am discovering my thumbs.

 I hope you all have a good rest of the week. If you have time- check out your thumbs. They taste like chicken.

Day 141

I am talking! Just little sounds here and there. Mom and dad sure are easy to please- I make the smallest little noise and they get so excited.
My mom entered a writing contest. The winners will be announced soon, but the blog that is having the contest occasionally posts some of the entries for the contest and mom's article was posted. You can check it out here. 

She has also been making fermented lemonade. I have not had any my self- just milk for me of course. My sister likes it and my brother will not even go near it (typical) all the while dad changes the subject when she asks him to try it.
If you want to make it here is a video by the healthy home economist on how to make it. .... mom cheated and added 1/2 cup more sucanat. It's good for ya.
