Seems as though this year has gone by so fast. I can't believe that Gabe is almost done with his first year of school! He will be 6 May 31!!! Where have the last six years gone? I look at him sometimes and wonder " What happened to my sweet small baby?". Aaron and I are going to be putting Gabe in a small private christian school next year, and I honestly can't wait. The classes have less than 10 kids in each class and there is a lot of one on one attention that I think he could really use. The program they use for school is that which is used for a lot of christian based homeschools, and I have heard AMAZING things about it. I am so excited to watch him excel in first grade! He loves math and science...just like his daddy that is for sure:)

Liquid diet and a 5 year old...

So I FINALLY got Gabe into the pediatric gastro dr at Mt. WAshingtion Childrens Hospital here in Baltimore. We have one of the best dr.s in the state of Maryland. I was so happy to NOT have to dealw ith military crap anymore! WE are fianlly getting some answers!

For those of you who don't know, and you probably don't care to know either but I am going to tell you anyway, for the last three years Gabe has very severe bowel issues. His PCM *primary care manager* with the military REFUSED to give us a referal to have him checked out. Now that Aaron is no longer military, we can go where we want when we want and I LOVE IT.

So anyway, this weekend Gabe is on a liquid diet, 34mg of mirilax *twocaps* in 16fl oz every 8 hours and an adult FLEET enima once a day for 3 days. *yes he was THIS backedup*. On Tuesday we go back in to take x-rays to find out what is going on in his little tum tum. He has gone from 45 lbs in aug to 34lbs on Tuesday. He went from 50th% in growth chart ot 15%...this is NOT good.

The baby is cutting molars.

That is about it.

Will have more news in a few days:)

Been tooo long

It has been to long since I posted here. But have been rather busy and honeslty not online a whole lot. I have been working ont tagging, hanging, and pricing over 600 items for a children's consignment sale at Ft. Meade the end of April. Along with that and the two kids, cleaning the house, and having a husband, taking the time to blog has taken the backseat.

It has been a rough winter for our family with the "sickness" as we have come to call it. We can't seem to get out of here!!! Once someone is feeling better, someone else turns up sick! It is driving me nuts! I think Gabe missed WAY WAY WAY too much school. But with a fever you can't send them. I would rather let him sleep then wake him up just to turn around and have to go get him.

Spring is here though. And people are starting to feel better, except now we have allergies and allergies with Gabe equals asthma attacks. I am not looking forward to that.

The boys are getting big. Zeke is walking. Gabe is getting really good at video games.

A new year; a new life

With the comming of the New Year, I am trying hard to do a lot of "things" to change my life and my families life. Of course the saem old resolutions, lose weight, spend less time doing this and more time doing that. But, along with those "normal" resolutions, we have made some other as a family, and I can't wait to get started!

1. Pay off all our debt. We staretd off great by paying off one car ebfore the New Year came. Now we are left with one student loan for 5,000 and one car for 8,000. !!!! That is it!! no CREDIT CARDS, no un paid medical bills...nothing just a car and 1 loan!

2. Spending more time together as a family. Doing anything as long as we are together.

3. Saving money to BUY a house.. We have been thinking over our options and we need to see where Aaron's job leads before we settle on one descion we have made in our brain storm. It just all depends I guess. I will update as things play out.

4. Maybe...MAYBE trying for baby number 3...probably closer to the end of the year. Not sure I want two babies in diapers...I have seen people do it...and I don't think it is for me we want to wait until we are OUT of debt. Which won't take more like towards the end of the year...hoping for a girl this time...if not we decided we would stop at 4 and adopt.

5. LIVE LIFE!!!!!

My baby is 1:(

My baby Ezekiel James turned 1 on Deceber 17, 2009. We had a HUGE party planned with at least 20 guests who RSVP'd. We were so excited and had even bought two cakes to feed everyone! But guess what? It got SNOWED OUT! NO ONE COULD COME! POOR ZEKE! POOR US! * that is a LOT of cake to eat*. Our neighbor and her 3 children did come and they played and ate cake and did presents. It turned out to be a quite little party. Maybe next year it won't snow out right?

So exciting!

My cousin Shanna is having Little John today! I am so excited for her and her husband for the many blessings a child, especially little boys:), bring to a famiy. What joy they must be experiencing! It brings me back to when I was in labor with Gabe. It was a very bittersweet moment for me as my husband wasn't there when he was born. In fact, Aaron wasn't home until Gabe as about 5 months. I am so happy for Shan and John that John gets to be there. I am also so greatful that Aaron was able to be there when Zeke was born. My heart is filled with such joy for them as they embark on the best adventure that life throws...children! At the sametime my heart is full of tears of joy remembering the births of my two precious babies and thinking that my little guy will be 1 in 1 1/2 months..:(

It is hard to believe that my baby Zeke will be 1 soon:( I hate to think about it. Makes me want to have another one already! I have started working out and going to Weight Watchers with a good friend that had a baby about the same time I had Zeke. We both want to loose some weight before we have more kids. I still have baby weight to loose from Gabe and he is 5!!! Shows you how fast time flies. I know it isn't an excuse for not loosing the weight though:)

Soon Gabe and Zeke will not be the only great grandchildren either. My beautiful cousin Shanna is due anyday with her first baby Little John:) I am so excited for her and her husband John. What a blessing little boys are! She is going to make a great mommy:) It is sad to think that we are all grownup, married, and having kids! I remember her and I just being little girls. Oh well:(

Gabe is very excited for Halloween. He is going to be a spider and Zeke is going to be Eeyore!

Will post pics after Halloween!!
