I need to be better about blogging or poor little Shay will not have written memories like the ones I posted about Taylor. It’s true what they say about Mommy brain… I can’t remember anything. Especially now having two! Just better to blog.
Shay Morgan was born May 16th at 8:05 pm. 6lbs 12 oz and 19 1/2 inches of absolute cuteness. Here are a few pictures my awesome photographer friend, Barb, took of my girls.
More pics to come. 🙂
I’m so behind on updating pictures. Here are the latest pictures of Taylor. 🙂 Also, over spring break we made Taylor’s room into a BIG girl room. I’m hoping to post pics of her room soon.
For months now Taylor’s FAVORITE thing to play is doctor. To the point that she has 3 doctor kits. She can easily spend hours doctoring her dolls, stuff animals, the kitty (Misty doesn’t like it too much), or anyone who enters the house.
Over the weekend Taylor developed a cough. She doesn’t cough very often but when she does she turns purple in the face and can’t breathe ~scary~. So today I took Taylor to the doctor. I really think Taylor has to be the only kid that LOVES the doctor. As I loaded her up in the car she asked where we were going. You would have thought I told her we were going to Disney World. She beamed the whole trip there. You would not have thought Taylor was sick in the least bit as she skipped her way in the doctor’s office holding my hand. I was kind of embarrassed when the nurse behind the counter asked, “sick visit?”
When we got into the room Taylor was thrilled. The doctor came in and started his examination. Taylor had all sorts of questions for him. After several test, the doctor diagnosed Taylor with mild asthma. He said Taylor will need an inhaler at times she is sick and has a bad cough. He wanted to do a breathing treatment first in the room before sending us on our way. He prepared me first with how kids hate the breathing treatment. Taylor had to have the mask on for 8 minutes. Worried I gathered a pile of books. When the nurse came in she put the mask on Taylor’s face and started the machine talking to Taylor through the steps. Not only did my child LOVE the breathing treatment, she frightened me. She smiled from ear to ear. She also placed both hands on the mask, so we wouldn’t take it off, and breathed in as hard as she could to get every breath. The nurse was laughing so hard she called the doctor in to see too. When the treatment was finished she wouldn’t let us take the mask off. So the doctor went over the at home inhaler with me as Taylor continue to wear the mask (not turned on). As we left Taylor cried reaching out to the doctor and wanting to stay. I think I’m the only mom dragging my crying child OUT of the doctor’s office. As we were almost to the door the doctor chased after us and handed Taylor the mask for her to take home since she wanted it so badly. Yes, me very embarrassed as we walked all the way to the pharmacy and then to the car with Taylor wearing the mask with this big long tubing trailing behind her. Weird kid.
Before Taylor, I would complain my house was messy. I had NO idea how fast a house can get dirty with a toddler. I was so proud of myself yesterday… house squeaky clean. Then by noon today you would have thought the circus came through the house. The funny part is Taylor was “helping” Mommy clean. Tonight I found this video on YouTube and I will never complain about my mess again. Haha!
Oh my! I really think if Tay did this I would die. You can just hear the pain in this mother’s voice.
Background: Last night I went to my friend Robin’s house for her 4th Annual Miss America Party. Always a blast with tiaras, Nurf air guns, high calorie food, and lots of laughs. Anyways, it meant I wasn’t in bed
at my usual bed time of 9:30 but crept into bed after 2:00. I so didn’t get my much needed beauty sleep as Taylor decided this morning to wake up before the little birdies. I guess I was so out of it that Devin went and got her out of her crib (yes, she is still in a crib and will be until she is in kindergarten) and brought her downstairs to our room. All I know is I feel this tap… tap… tap… *in Taylor’s sweet loud whisper while right in my face* “You up Mommy?” I groan and roll over. Then I hear the petter patter as she leaves the room. Next thing I know I have a small toy tea-cup shoved in my mouth as Tay is yelling “I made you some coffee Mommy.” Then she showered me with kisses and told me she loves me. I might have bags under my eyes today and not all with it but I couldn’t resist this face.
My New Years resolution last year was to document Taylor and our family through blogging. Well… I guess I made it to September. Hopefully I can keep up this year. Thinking all the way back to September…. wow!… there is so much to post.
