Who's that slacker over there? It's me! It's me!

We're all alive, some barely, but definitely alive.

Let's see... Wednesday was J's PT again. Seriously, Charlene ROCKS. We also had a nursing student observing and J was turning the charm on all over her. She walked in and he just stared for a few seconds, and then his mega watt smile hit, and she was a goner. He got pretty grumpy about his neck being massaged, so I nursed him for a bit and he dozed off but woke up. We went onto the mat for more exercises and he got distracted from the grumpies and did *really* well!! Charlene's 11am appt cancelled so she asked if we wanted to keep going since he was doing so well. So we got another half hour session! We got him to rotate to the left to about 65 degrees, when he would only go to 45 the last week, woot! She has a toy there that he just loves, it's pretty funny to watch him do anything in his power to get that toy.

P is sick yet AGAIN. ugh. poor kid. He was sick last week but we thought he was better. Apparently not, or else he's caught yet another bug. He's been running a temperature for about 2-3 days, and just not interested in doing much. He's lost some weight, and he just looks SO skinny. It's not like he had any fat to start with, and now... makes me sad. His temp yesterday afternoon was 103.5 but the doctor said to keep alternating the tylenol and motrin, and if it goes over 104 to take him in to the ER, but if it stays about the same to call in in the morning and get him in to see the doctor. Loooovely. First, the boy hates thermometers even in the armpit (really. he screams the whole time) and second, he hates the doctor even more than the thermometer. But he woke up for a diaper change in the middle of the night (he's been drinking a ton, which is good) and he felt much cooler, so fingers crossed his fever's broken, because I really just don't want to deal with the doctor. I don't have much good to say about him, but we haven't switched M and P up to the doctors in Tucson yet. I heard through the mom vine that this doctor's retiring anyways, so who knows where they plan to shuffle my kids. I plan to shuffle them on up to tucson.

M's doing great with school, and yes, I still have a hard time dropping her off. Probably more because she rarely minds leaving me. No fair. They had school pictures on monday, and I spent most of the morning tossing shirts everywhere, trying to figure out what to put her in. Finally, with Megs all knowing help, I settled on a pink polo shirt with pigtails and, of COURSE, some pink bows from Karyn. I cannot WAIT to see what they look like! M hasn't been pleased with P not wanting to play with her, and tries to force him into fighting with her. It's entertaining and irritating all in one.

I'm starting to get back into my digiscrapping mojo, and got about 4 pages done since this weekend. But I've been a GROUCH lately though, poor CJ. The stupidest things tick me off, it's insane. J's been starting to sleep through the night, so maybe hormones are all over because of that....? Bah, whatever. But in a week I will TRY not to be grouchy, because....... i'm going to vegas, baby!!!!!! Me and the kidlets are going to visit mum for a few days, since Peggy (my dearest friends mom) is flying in to visit mum and she's never met any of the babes. I am SOOOOOO excited. Really. SO. VERY. excited. plus!! PLUS!! I'm going to break the fast with gaily! *swoon* I can't wait to get out of this town for a few days. Good food, good shopping, grrrrrrreat company, awesome. Awesome, awesome, awesome. I think i've preened enough.

So who wants to see my new pages? What, no one? Too bad. My blog, my rules, sucka.

These are some of my favorite pictures ever of P. It totally shows the little boy in him.

For a challenge on Weeds & Wildflowers

Because she'll hate me as a teenager anyways, why not make it worth it?

J would NOT go to sleep a few nights ago, so I snapped a picture of it and scrapped it. Just because he's the cutest, sweetest baby doesn't mean there aren't down times.
