Ava's First Pumpkin Patch

This past weekend we took Ava to her first pumpkin patch. It wasn't much of a pumpkin farm but we got some good shots of babygirl and some pumpkins.

7 Months Old

Avabug is 7 months old already! She is one amazing little girl and she brightens up my day always. Her smile makes me forget about everything and she has the funniest quirks.


  • She is pulling up on everything these days, the playpen, the couch, the crib, me... I think she's going to be an early walker. Her daddy started walking at 9 months.
  • She has this thing with her tongue. It's like she's half-white/half-lizard. It's the funniest thing. She moves it in and out and curls it, you have to see it. hilarious.
  • She has started repeating "dadda" over and over . She starts whispering it then she screams it. She says it when she sees her daddy. I think she knows that's her "dadda"
  • She can hold her bottle when she's not being lazy. It definitely came in handy when mommy went shopping the other weekend.
  • She is not sleeping through the night yet :( I just don't think I am blessed with a baby that sleeps through the night. oh well. extra snuggle time.
Here are some of our recent shots of monkey. Enjoy!

Lauren and Micah's Wedding

This weekend another one of my best friends got married. It couldn't have been a more perfect day. The weather was awesome and everything turned out perfect. I could not be happier for them both. Here are a few of my favorites from the weekend.

Me and the bride-to-be

I loved her bouquet. Those pearls are her great grandmother's

The doctor finally came in with the results of the scope. They were not able to see what exactly was causing my mom to bleed. There were no active sites of blood that could have been the culprits. But my mom suffers from cirrhosis of the liver and they suspect the bleeding came from a rupture of the esophageal varices (enlarged veins at the lower part of the esophagus). She lost a lot of blood and her blood count was very low. They gave her more blood throughout the night to make up for the blood loss. The biggest and scariest part of the doctor's speech was when he told us if she would have lost one more pint of blood she wouldn't be here.

But tonight she finished the last of her transfusions and the nurses disconnected all the tubes from her arms. They are going to continue to monitor her levels tonight and she'll hopefully be able to be discharged tomorrow.

I am thankful to everyone that kept our family in their thoughts and prayers.

It's been a rough couple of days.

Monday I had to take Ava to the doctor. She has a double ear infection and conjunctivitis. Since Monday, she's been fussy and miserable. I stayed up with her til 2 in the morning. Poor baby couldn't breathe. Oh the joys of a child in daycare. I wish I could be a stay-at-home mommy and shield her from all the nasty germs.

And today has been a doozie. It really scared me. I was at work and my sister called me. She was hysterical on the phone and said an ambulance was taking mom to the hospital; that she had thrown up a lot of blood. I was instantly panicked and I rushed to the house to meet them.

We have been at the ER since early this morning and we still don't even know the prognosis. I am just hoping and praying for some good news. I mean, throwing up blood can't be good but I am hoping it's not as bad as I am imagining. From watching all my ER's and Grey's Anatomy's when someone throws up blood it's usually not a good sign. And my sister said it looked like someone was murdered in the bathroom :(

It's such a strange feeling being worried about your parents. I guess I have taken for granted having them always worrying about us kids. I still depend on my parents emotionally and the dynamic is finally starting to change and it scares me to death. I guess I didn't have to think about things like these serious situations happening so soon.

I haven't even had the chance to see my mom yet. That is what I am waiting for now.

Please pray for my mom.
