Baby K, A big brother at 10 months

Baby K (the 10 month old) became a big brother today at 12;30.
The baby was a whopper at 7 lbs 14 oz. He is the cutest thing with the roundest head and a head full of hair. He looks just like baby K.
I feel so sorry for mom. She's trying her best. But seems to be swimming upstream against a current.
I'm not sure whats going to happen in this case. She lives in a different county now, so we shall see how all this plays out in the next few months. What ever happens is going to be hard for all concerned.
I took him to the hospital tonight to visit her and she seemed overwhelmed with both of them. Kinda to be expected, she did just give birth this afternoon.
We shall see........

A Boy & his PB&J

The Boy is a very picky eater.
He still will only eat one thing at a time. As in, only Mac & Cheese. Only chicken nuggets. Only a PB&J. No side items. No fries or chips. And he wouldn't touch a veggie if his life depended on it.
Finding WHAT he will eat at any given time is an adventure, so to speak.
But he will always eat Smucker's Uncrustables PB&J.
I have one in the car with me when I pick him up from preschool. It's the only thing I know he'll eat.
Smucker's uncrustables are giving away 80,000 sandwiches!
Go to to find out how to get yours Free.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Smucker’s Uncrustables and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. In addition, Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.”

When it pours...literally

We had down pours this last week,the likes that our state has not seen in many, many years.
Many of our neighbors were flooded. Some a little, some alot. I've never thanked God more for living on this hill I dislike sooooo much.
Today I was finally able to go to the next county over (all the major & most minor roads were washed away or out) to take Baby K to the Dr, as he has had a fever for 2 days. But he is no stranger to ear infections, so I didn't think too much about it. But he was terribly cranky, very unlike him. The Dr did a swine flu test and it came back positive!
This is not good. I do not want 3 kids and me (or the husband) sick as dogs.
If you think about it say a little prayer for our sicky house.

Baby Einstein & a priceless hippo

Mom Central & Baby Einstein have given us the opportunity to preview their new DVD "World Animal Adventure". Everyone loved it...from the 9 month old to the 3 year. You would have seen mommy in the picture too, but someone had to take the picture.
World Animal Adventure DVD is the newest product from The Baby Einstein Company that brings exotic animals from all over the world home to babies and even pre-schoolers. The Boy loved it. It has a new feature I've never seen before in their DVD's. Grow With Me. So that older children get more & more out of the video. The 9 month old loved looking at the animals from all over the world. The 18 month old loved trying to say the new words. The 3 year old even tryed out some new words instead of hippo, he tryed to say hippopotamus,which was priceless!
We give the new DVD an A+.

A picture is worth a thousand words

Nothing to say for now. All is unusually quiet on the home front.
Of course our house is full with no chance of anybody going home in the near future. So I expect to be left alone for awhile. We'll so how that goes.

Wendy's has a Heisman & your kid gets a chance to shine!

In high school, students not only need to focus on their grades, but they often take on other
activities as well, playing baseball and tennis, writing for the school newspaper, volunteering in
the community, and serving on school committees. Though hobbies, these activities help teens stand out amongst their peers when college applications roll around. With college admissions growing more and more selective.
The Wendy's High School Heisman program presents a great opportunity to help those students who have managed to balance so much, stand out. This award celebrates high school seniors who excel in academics, athletics, and community involvement; in essence, recognizing them for all of the things they already do. Colleges want to see well-rounded students who demonstrate dedication and commitment, making this program especially relevant and accessible.
High school seniors who have a 3.0 average or higher, participate in a school-sponsored sport and contribute to their community can apply at , or a high school educator, guidance counselor, or coach can nominate them.
As a little reward, the first 41,100 applicants will receive a free Wendy's gift card in amounts ranging from $5 to $50.
One male and one female from each high school will win the award and continue on in competition for state and national awards. Twelve national finalists will participate in Heisman Weekend festivities during an all-expenses-paid trip Dec. 11-13 to New York City. ESPN2 will feature all 12 national finalists during the Wendy's High School Heisman Awards Ceremony, which airs Dec. 13.
The Wendy's High School Heisman website will display the names of all applicants and individual school winners on October 22, 2009.

First Day of School

We did it!
You would have to know The Boy to know what an accomplishment this truly was.
He goes nowhere and does nothing without his mama.
We talked school up big time over the weekend. Made a big deal about packing his backpack and snack box. He picked out the snacks he wanted to take, ect. He got up bright and early to get ready to go. But I still expected a melt down when it came time to get out of the car. But when we pulled up for him to get out. They opened the door and he said "my name is Havid, and I have a backpack."He jumped out of car and went in with not so much as a tear. He said he had a great time and loved his teacher! You could have knocked me over with a feather. I had steeled myself for a huge meltdown that never came.
Today however, he was not quite so eager. He didn't want to get up and didn't want to go. But by the time I got him dressed, in the car and there, he had calmed down enough to just go right in again. I was so relieved.
Now if we can just keep this going for ohhhhhhh say 17 more years.

This Boy starts pre-school!

In this picture he was about 9 months old. He fell asleep on the cat food place mat. He slept with his legs tucked under him until about a year ago.
It seems like time is flying more quickly with this Boy than with his 3 older sisters. Maybe it's because I'm so much older.
All I know is there is no way this little baby should be going away from mommy for 3 whole hours a day! Yes, it's true. I'm excited at the thought of being able to do whatever I want and do it in peace & quiet. But I have a feeling tomorrow I will sit and stare at the wall for 3 hours, worried that some little person is being mean to him or the teacher doesn't understand him or what if he thinks I'm not coming back to get him??
Oh geez, I was never supposed to have a "very first day of school" again. It's not like I've never went through this before, right? I'm sure I'll be OK. Yes, I'll be OK. Yes.
I sure hope he will be too...I hate being mean to 4 yr olds for being mean to my boy.
