WHAT DO YOU MEAN MY MOMMY HASN'T BLOGGED IN AWHILE?



Just a recent photo of the Cheekster. Looking inquisitive isn't he?

Let's see, if the weather has a drastic change it's b/c I, along with the babe, went to church today. Yep. And it didn't catch on fire when I walked in either. How do you like that! Between the baby having the reaction he does when he sees Jesus & me having to get him blessed, I felt this strange pull to go. I'm glad I did. It was a nice meeting & Cheeks was soooooooooooooooooooooooooo good through Sacrament.

Now what I want to know is...when did I get to be the same age as the Bishopbric? Anyone?
Anyone at all?
The Bishop is easily my age, if not 2 or 3 years younger.
Nice looking Bishop. Very Teethy! You know that "I'm a Mormon, so I have a smile like the Osmond's teeth", that's what he had!

I'm doing the walk for MS next week. If you would like to donate email me or leave a comment on my blog & I will send you the link. Any donation is high appreciated. I mean, any people. Like a $1!

I started WW again. Lost 5 lbs so far. I am sure I have gained it back. It's really wonderful when you are talking to someone & they say "You're pregnant, when are you due?". I was like, Um, no that's the baby weight from him...he's 8 months old. I have to go throw myself in traffic now. Nice talking to you. Whatever!

On a high note. Went to the Cheesecake Factory yesterday for lunch.
Erin, the babe & myself.
The hostess actually had a brain in her head.
She asked if we would like the napkin & plate for the baby.
I asked just for the napkin.
She didn't give him crayons.
And
She brought a plate of bread with 3 slices of banana on it for the babe.
Ok, if they normally bring the banana, don't tell me b/c I like to think it is b/c they do it for all babies :>)




I scrapped a few weeks back. This is the latest page. I am hoping to get to do it again but who knows when. At night, afterwork, I am too tired and the weekend I am playing catch up on chores, running my errands & spending as much time with my growing too fast for my liking son! Whose responsiblity was it to tell me 8.5 months flies by in a blink of an eye?

On that note...Whoops out!

Random Photos taken this week

Tim & Cheeks.....Timmy sure does love his baby brother!
He is so good with him & Cheekers loves him too!


Believe it or not, he does smile but this is what you get when you tell him he has to eat the burger he ordered & decided he didn't want.


Finally, a foot fetish. Hmmm....I wonder what relative he takes after?

I TOLD YOU SO!

Larry Birkhead be the baby's daddy. One look at a photo of the baby & um, hello, even Stevie Wonder could tell.

Now onto more important things. Like my son!

Poor thing. He had his 1st trip to the ER Sunday night. He has had a cough & runny nose that I attributed to teething. Then he started to weez which I thought was just the junk in the throat that everyone gets but older kids & adults can cough it out. Well he sounded worse to me on Sunday night so off we went.

They checked him out. He has Bronchilitis. A virus that settles in the airways. The Ped gave him a treatment of Albuturol but he didn't respond. Only 30% of kids do. She sent him on his merry way & told me he would most likely get better in a few days & to follow up with my regular ped.

Today he sounded less weezy...thank goodness. Took him to our reg. ped who suggested getting a vaporizer & letting me know his cough can last 10 weeks! HELLO! 10 Weeks! That's a mighty long time for the Cheekers.

He seems to be on the mend, so that makes this mommy happy.

The Bobster was home all last week. Sure my house was messy & chaotic but it was nice to have him here. He left yesterday to go back to Rochester but should be home this weekend.

Easter weekend we went camping. Well let's rephrase that, Bobster's family went in campers & we rented a trailor. It was so nice! I had a really good time & would definitely do it again but only in a trailor or a superduper trailor. We took all the kids with us so it was a nice family time.

On Sat. everyone went to Bridgeport to watch Chucky (B's bro) race. He won the heat race & placed 8th in the feature. Not too shabby. I didn't go b/c it was freezin & the Cheekers wasn't feeling good. So I went outlet shopping in Lancaster instead. Only 15 miles from the campsite. Totally scored some great outfits for Cheekers for the summer. Went to the Gymboree Outlet which I thought would be like returning to the MotherShip for me but sadly it sucked! They had nothing for boys & what they did have was blah & just as expensive as the regular store. O well.

Just wanted to give you all a quick update!

Woops out!
