Water Park

My nephew Christopher, his girl friend Jakie, and her two girls came up this weekend to go to the water park. And they invited us to come along. The girls had a blast!!! The water park is perfect for their age it's not to big and it's not to little. Chastity even went down the big water slides that are dark the whole way through and it goes in and out of the building. She LOVED IT more then the little slides. Alyssa didn't go down any of the big slides. But she did go down the little slides her favorite part was the lazy river.
 We will differently be going back. We just got the day pass and it was totally fine the girls were so tired once we got home. So it was a perfect long fun filled day.
Thanks again Christopher and Jackie for asking us to come and spend the day with you all. We had a blast and can't wait to do it again sometime soon!!!

Back Pain = Degenerative Disk Disease

2 weeks after Teagen was born my TM started attacking up again. For those of you that don't know I was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis back in 2009. Here's the link to my old blog were you can read about it to understand better.
I started back up on all my meds right away except my muscle relaxers cause I was breast feeding and wanted to continue. Hoping that all the other meds would get it back under control. Well it didn't.... so after a few break downs I had to stop breast feeding. And I wasn't happy about it and didn't have great luck with Alyssa and Chastity and was doing awesome with Teagen.
The past few weeks the pain has gotten worse in my back and on my left side. To the point where I can't lay on my back or left side and if I do I'm in horrible pain. I have woke up many times having moving to my back or left side crying from the pain. I've been taking Vicodin and it helps some with the pain as long as I keep on it every four hours.
I had an MRI on my neck and my brain on Tuesday which took almost two hours. I almost had to quite because the pain was so bad in my back.  But I got through it with a little bit of crying and talking to myself in my head to clam down. I already have to take a zany just to be able to get into the MRI because it's so tight and small in there it freaks me out.
And then on Thursday I had my MRI on my back. My doctor called in a volume for me to take to help with the pain. It help some and made me really sleepy.
I went to the doctor today and found out that I have Degenerative Disk Disease plus the Transverse Myelitis. I'm going to start taking an inflammatory, physical therapy, and back strengthening exercise.   And pray that it works. My mom also has this and goes and see two specialist and also gets shots in her back to help deal with the pain. As of right now I'm not going to do that unless this shows no improvement.

I'm 2 months

I'm two months old!! I weigh 9lbs. I can smile, laugh, coo, and make a yelling sound (that's what my sister's call it.) I still sleep a lot and will sleep anywhere between 5 to 8 hours at night. But during the day mommy and daddy wake me up too feed me every three hours. I don't like taking a bath but I love to be held. I still wear new born clothes and new born diapers.
Mommy thinks I'm just going to be itty bitty baby.
Mommy and I had a little photo shoot. I haven't been feeling to good so nothing to big.

Teagen Frances

Here she is.... and of course her middle name came from Auntie Ali and my Grandma. My sister Heather had a baby girl in August and named her Alison Morgan. Alison didn't get to meet these two little girls but they have some big shoes to follow with being named after her. And even though they didn't meet her they will know everything about her. And will learn to love her just like we all do.

Starting Back Up

I'm Back......

It's time to start blogging again. Oh how I have miss blogging so much.
A lot has happened since I last blogged.

We got pregent, moved to Middlebury, had a baby girl named Teagen born December 16, 2011.
Both Alyssa and Chastity have loved having a baby. Chastity is now a big sister and Alyssa now gets to babysit two sisters at some point in time. Since I had the girls so close together Alyssa doesn't really remember that much about Chastity being a baby.
My labor went great except for when she stop breathing twice after she was born. But was put on oxygen and started breathing again. Nothing ever came of it. She was 7lbs 18 1/4 long born at 8:36. I had Aaron and my Mom by my side. She did fine until she started spitting up a lot and has GERD. When we took her in at her one week check up she was 7lbs 6 oz. And doc wasnt to happy with the poor weight gain so he wanted me to being her back in a week later which was a Friday. And she had lost weight and was down 7lbs 4oz. So I had to being her back in on Monday and she was down 6lbs 14oz. So since she wasn't gaining weight like she should of been and kept on lossing we were hospitalized and she had to a feeding tube put in.After a long weekend in the hospital we were relased to go home with the feeding tube in. And Aaron and I were taught how to feed her through it. She now is up to 8lbs and no longer has a feeding tube in. We had to have some test done and are still waiting on the results. One of the test we got done is Amino Acid Disease and the other is Cystic Fibrosis. Both are very scary and are praying that they are both negtive.
Life is wonderful and I have never been this HAPPY before. I hear it from a lot of people that its great to see me smile or to hear me laugh.

Shedd Aquarium

Aaron and I took the girls to Chicago this past weekend. We had planned on taking the train but with the schedule it didn't really work out so we drove. Which was no big deal, chastity was a little disappointed but like I told her there's always another time. Which we plan on doing cause we didn't get to take them to Navy Pier because it was very cool and raining.
So we just hung around the hotel Friday night. And order some great deep dish pizza.
Then on Saturday we took the girls to the aquarium. Which none of us had been before. We had a blast and loved every minute of it. We went to our first 4D movie. Which was very cool, it snowed, blew bubbles, wind blew and your seats moved, vibrated, and also poke you.

Chastity is FIVE!!!

Alyssa and I woke up early to get Birthday Pancakes made for Chastity. Something that I have done for girls ever since they turned one. Then Alyssa went down and woke Chastity up all so sweet and nice. We sang to her, she blew her candle out and then she look at me and said "Mommy am I really five?" I looked at her and said "you sure are". As you can tell from the pictures she has CRAZY hair when she wakes up in the morning.
We then did a Hacienda Dinner. Kept it small since we all got together over Memorial Day weekend. These hacienda party's are something that my girls look forward to. With the chips and ranch, the hat, the singing, and the cake. Chastity has been talking about it since Alyssa's party.
It's hard to believe that five years ago she was so little and tiny. And now she's so big and she thinks she's all grown up.
