Finally the Christmas Tree is up!!

We finally had a chance to put up the Christmas Tree. I was messing with my camera's modes and took this picture of Kyan messing with the Christmas lights. I thought I would share, it turned out pretty cool!

Christmas Party in Myrtle Beach

We went this weekend to Myrtle Beach for the annual Hemophilia of South Carolina Christmas Party. It was a blast. We stayed at the Landmark Resort. Nevaeh loved all the pools. She even sat on Santa's lap. Here is proof.

Guess WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kyan is finally walking. He decided he was going to do it tonight. He still isn't very good at it but hey he is making progress. Guess he decided he didn't want to turn 16 months and not give walking a try!!

Lights at the Zoo

Here is some pictures from The Holiday Lights at the Zoo. It was this years Christmas party for the Children's Blood Disorder Center. Nevaeh had fun but I am not sure if Kyan had too much fun. He was tired and ready for bed.

Sleepy Kyan!!!!

December 02, 2006


Is anyone else wondering where this year went??? I can't believe that it is December. And I also can't believe that Nevaeh is going to be 4 tomorrow!!!! Where does time go?? When Trey was in Iraq time seemed to take FOREVER to pass but now I can't get it to stop. I was even wrapping some Christmas presents last night. That is a first for me. We are so far ahead this year in Christmas shopping etc. Kind of scary!!

Kyan has his hemophilia clinic next week on Wednesday. I am going to see the physical therapist with him. He is going to be 16 months on the 15th and still not walking. He is still in the "normal" range but since he was diagnosed with "weak trunk muscles" he will probably have to see the physical therapist more often to get over this hurdle. He still isn't showing much interest in walking. He tries occasionally but he is really wobbly and he gives up. It is very hard for me to watch. Well I post more tomorrow with pictures from tonight's Christmas Party at the Zoo.

Early Birthday Present & almost ER trip!!

Nevaeh got a early birthday present today from her Aunt Regina. She couldn't wait till Sunday at her party to open it. She snuck in the other room and opened it. It was a Barbie w/ her dog Tanner. You feed the dog and he poops. LOVELY!! But she really wanted it. Well the new Barbie and her dog almost caused us a trip to the ER!! Nevaeh decided to stick a piece of the poop in her ear. And at first I couldn't get it out but luckily I finally got it. Just thought I would share!

Happy Thanksgiving & Happy Birthday Amanda!!

Hope everyone has a Happy Turkey Day!! We are having some friends over for dinner.

November 22, 2006

Another dinner out!

This time it was with Baxter. Same restaurant as last time, Terra. We got to try out the new Baxject II. I liked it but am thinking the BioSet from Kogenate still works for us. While we were there we got to meet a new "hemo" family. We are no longer the newbies on the block. They have a 13 month old daughter with Severe Hemophilia A, who was just diagnosed in August. A little unusual because they have no family history like us and its a girl with the disorder.

Anyway, the next couple of weeks are going to be busy. We have a battalion Christmas party on Friday night, the HTC's (Hemophilia Treatment Center) Christmas party on Saturday at the Zoo and Nevaeh's 4th birthday party on Sunday. Then the following weekend, it's Myrtle Beach for the SC Hemophilia Chapter's Christmas Party weekend. I am so looking forward to that one. We had so much fun last year!! I will write more later!

This Weekend

Ok this weekend I hope to get a lot of scrapbooking done. I am still way behind!!! There is an online crop with Personal Scrapper that I am going to participate in. I hope to post some of the ones I finish.

Can I Get Off the Merry Go Round?? PLEASE??

So I haven't blogged in a while. I am feeling like my life is like a merry go round. Constantly moving and going too fast without my consent of course. We went back to the treatment center today for another head bonk. UGH!!! Of course the use of a helmet for Kyan was brought up again. Ok am I a bad hemophiliac mother by not wanting my child to have to wear a helmet??? I don't want him to feel different then everyone else. Maybe I should just relent and get one. Gosh all these trips to the doctor could be avoided. Right?? This time a toy truck fell off a shelf and hit him in the head. He started to get a bruise with this one, were last week he didn't get a bruise.

Oh well, He got factored and we are back home. He is passed out in bed!!! Poor little guy! The treatment center is trying to find a Home Infusion Nurse for me. That would be wonderful. I hope it doesn't take too long to find one!!! I will post more later.

Fun Fun

We went yesterday to a free dinner/training class on inhibitors by Novo Nordisk . We end up going to a lot of this types of meetings. The more knowledge the better in my opinion. Inhibitors scare me!! Kyan and Nevaeh came with us. They were so good. The restaurant (which seems to be a favorite for Factor companies) is a nice one with table clothes etc. Kyan kept trying his hardest to pull the table cloth straight off the table. And pretty much ate the entire time we were there. Everyone always get a kick out of his appetite.

On a side note, the head bonk from Thursday is much, much better. Kyan did however decide to test his factor 8 response and fall out of the bathtub after his bath. And like magic, the bump from the fall was gone the next moring. WOW!!! I am loving factor. If only it would last longer than 12 hours!!!

November 09, 2006

Thought I would post this picture of Nevaeh. I love this outfit and thought she looks adorable.

I had to take Kyan to the treatment center today for an infusion. He fell and hit his head on the wood entertainment center. It was just a pre-cautionary infusion. He doesn't have any signs of a brain bleed, so that is good. It was pretty scary! Poor little guy! He screamed when he saw the nurse. He knows what is going to happen as soon as he sees her.

Pretty boring here!!

Not too much going on here. This weekend was pretty boring. Trey worked all day Saturday and did have off (for once) on Sunday. When Nevaeh went to bed she said to him "Your going to be here when I wake up?? YEAH!!". It was so cute. We went out to breakfast Sunday morning to Ryan's (Kyan's favorite!). He ate just as much as Trey & I, if not more!!! That child can eat and he is only 1!!! We couldn't buckle him back in his car seat after we left without letting the straps out some!!!

Happy Birthday!!!

Regina!!! Hope you have a great birthday!!!!!!!!

Costume Pictures

Here our their halloween costumes. Kyan wasn't to jazzed about having the Elmo hood on his head!! We got so much candy!!! I handed out 2 bowls full of candy and got 2 bowls full back!! UGH! I didn't want that much. People were just handing them out in fist fulls.

Happy Halloween

We took these this morning in their Halloween shirts. I will post more pictures later.

Halloween Trial Run

We went to the "Boo at the Zoo" last night with some friends. And what you see Kyan doing in the picture is pretty much what he did ALL NIGHT long. But Nevaeh had fun at least! She is a fairy if you can't tell. Can't wait for tomorrow night!! Hopefully Kyan will be in a better mood.

October 29, 2006

Not Yet!!!

Here is a picture of Kyan that I took the other day. Still not walking. He is creeping along furniture still. He has been doing that for months now. I don't know when he will ever attempt to take his first step.

October 28, 2006

The Great Pumpkin!!!!

I got to watch "The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" with Nevaeh last night. I told her she could stay up past her bedtime to watch it. She was so excited to sit on my bedroom floor with me and watch it. I hadn't seen it in years. Trey was at CQ, so once Kyan was asleep it was just us girls! Nevaeh is getting so excited for Halloween. But she pretty much does this for every holiday. Next one will be Thanksgiving and she will drive me crazy till it gets here!! Hopefully Trey will be off this year for it or it will be pretty boring.

October 24, 2006

Tonight for dinner!!!

I took this picture of Kyan tonight during dinner. He was fully enjoying my spaghetti!!

Back Home

The kids and I are back home from Virginia. We went to take care of my nieces while my sister and brother in law went to Atlantic City. It was hectic of course, taking care of 5 kids is. Kyan had a bleed while we were there. He is doing better but appears to be getting more teeth now. I took all the kids to a pumpkin patch while I was there. Here is one of the pictures.

Pumpkin Patch

We took the kids to a church pumpkin patch up the street from our house. Kyan of course didn't like the hay we sat him in!!

Week One Over

So week one of watching my new daycare kids is over. And it wasn't too bad. Driving all of them to pick up Nevaeh at Preschool was interesting that's for sure. We went to take Trey a change of ACU's and dinner at the barracks tonight. Nevaeh was so devastated that we didn't stay to eat dinner with daddy. She hasn't seen him since Friday of last week and it has been really hard on her this time. She cried all the way home and just moaned "I want daddy!!"

October 03, 2006

She got in!

Finally the call came yesterday that Nevaeh got into Preschool. I tried so hard to get her in somewhere here in Columbia. Everyone was wait listed. But she finally made it. Only a month late, so she shouldn't be too far behind the other kids.

She went today and she absolutely loved it. She asked me before we left if I was going to stay with her. I said no only for a little while. And her response was good!! I didn't want you to stay! Gosh!! All ready the little DIVA!!!

I also started watching a friend of mine's kids yesterday as well. So my computer time has been pretty much cut down to maybe a minute here or there. That's probably a good thing. LOL!

Just Starting

Ok. So I have always wanted to blog, but never have. So were do I begin. I am a mother of two and a scrapbooker. Scrapbooking has become my release. My sister introduced me to it in 2003 and ever since I have been hooked. I am also a military wife. We have lived in Alaska, Kansas and now South Carolina.
