Potty training! Yes Cyann is potty training and she is doing GREAT!


I have to confess though it is so hard, I feel bad I am spending so much time training Cyann, I feel the other girls are getting left out. :( Its so hard.

I am working on trying to include the others and Im hopping this is just temporary. Right, this should take a week of focusing on training her and then it will get better? I know it does not always work that way but if you wouldn't mind praying that this training process would take and all that would be GREATLY appreciated.


I just spent the last hour holding my baby. OH Wait, She is not a baby anymore. She is one month shy of THREE!

I cant believe how time has flown by, really its crazy how it really feels like yesterday that I was holding the hairiest baby I had ever seen. :) She was so perfect. My little bear. Didlebear.

We have grow so close over the last few years. Been through so much and have overcome so many challenges. They have said you can't or wouldn't but you HAVE.

Your almost THREE!!! Can you believe it!
Im so proud of you! and I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!

Love mommy

Post surgery recap

Noelles surgery went really well. She did great and was declared the model patient of the day (she was the only one who woke up not screaming).

She was wide eyed and happy this early morning. :)

All dressed in our cute hospital gown.

I wish I looked so cute. This is after the relaxer they gave her, she was crazy loopy, it was to funny.

Post surgery she drank 16 oz of water right off and then just hugged her cup.
At home swinging and eating a snack. She has had so much water and juice its great. While she was eating oatmeal she would take a bit and cry while she swallowed so I gave her some Lortab, she is lots better now. Thank the Lord for medicine.
Thank you all my dear friends for all your prays and support.

I know its been way to long since I have posted but I am hoping I will post more often, we will see.

Tonight we are getting ready for surgery number 3. Noelle is having Myringotomy with Tube placement and Adenoidectony in short tubes placed in her ears and her Adenoid removed.

This is her second Tube placement. She has had a rough last few months and I am looking forward to having my sweet clean nosed little girl back that loves to laugh and play. I am excited to see if this helps little Noelle in the whole snoring department.

The whole thing will take 20 mins and she will be completely out for the whole thing which is scary for me. I dont like it when she is under and she is a bear when she comes out of it.

I will let you know how it all goes tomorrow. Im going to go to sleep its an early morning.

Noelle Update

well folks Noelle is the most amazing little girl, nothing not even a scary long named syndrome can hold her back.

She is talking!!!! yes she is saying WORDS!!!! Yes even whole sentences!!!!!

She has said "I want one." "Who's that?" "Want more" "Need that" "Mama dirty" (her diaper was dirty) "Want that"

I love hearing her say things! It is so wonderful.

In other news she is getting glasses today. She is near sighted, Im hoping this will help some with her walking. (she stumbles alot and does not see steps) I will post pictures when we get them.

well thats all the exciting news for now. Who said that RTS would hold her back?
