Stories

The boys and I were talking yesterday about careers that they each might want to have. Tyler began to get very sad because I told him how long Drs have to go to school. But he still wants to be a Dr. I asked Alex if he is going to go to school to be a police officer and her said no, "I want to go to school to learn about Jesus!" We might have a pastor on our hands!

Sofi is choosing to walk more than crawl, Bina still wants you to hold each hand before she walks with comfort. We are having tons of watching each of our children grow and develop at each of their ages. Parenting is TONS of hard work, but so much fun!

The joy continues!

Daddy's girls!
Bet you can't do this...
Family popcorn!

Beach time with Carolyn!

HAIR FOR BOWS FINALLY!
Fun at the beach!!
Sofi had a fever and was so sad most of the time, but nothing ice cream can't fix!
Bina ate hers and Alex's... he wasn't feel good either. My 3 youngest had a 24-hour fever.
This is Tyler's flag. At 6 I am going to make a flag for each child, given them a special name and teach them they are growing up and ready to learn so many wonderful things about life, God and all His goodness! The flag will wave on their birthdays and any other special days... like if they did well on a test, won their game or any other special event!

Tyler The Protector!
This is represented by the shield, his favorite color is red and he also picked blue and the cross symbolizes Christ's death on the cross and "t" for Tyler!

KRUSTY!

SOPHIA TOOK 8 STEPS TODAY!!! BINA TOOK 3! THEY ARE ON THEIR WAY!!!!
Bina is acting and feeling just fine. We have been giving everyone plenty of water!

Here is the new member of our family "Krusty" the crab climbing his tree!

DEHYDRATIONS IT IS!

I took Bina to the Dr this morning, where she saw a NP. The NP has had experience with seizures as a mother too. After telling her all that happened and adding that this morning her diaper was very yellow she is convinced it was from the heat. Babies need more water than us, plus we were outside all day. We are so glad the possible seizure did not last long and it only happened once. If it happens again she has to go right to the hospital. We are not even concerned about it happening again. As suggested by the NP we will not be outside mid-day today... suppose to be a hot one again. Hope you have a great day! All is well here!

HEAT STROKE???

Mom and Dad...I tried to call tonight, so if you read this first all is ok!!!
But Thursday was soooo hot and we were outside a lot... Bina had a 3 second seizure we think induced by heat stroke. It could have also been her head was turned weird and she was in pain... but I am thinking it is b/c of the heat. She froze and stiffened, Beth laid hands on her began to pray and she snapped out of it right away. After that she drooled a little, was dopey and then was playing like nothing happened. We called the nurse and she said if it happens again she should go to children's hospital. If not, she needs to be seen tomorrow. I will make an appointment in the morning! She was fine afterward and no other seizures. We are all drinking tons of water. I will update you after the appointment.

6 yrs old!! Almost..

Although it is not his b-day till Sunday... I am going to take the Red Robin server's advice. Celebrate your birthday for as many days as your age! It just so happens: His lunch was day 1 of 6... we have been talking about it and celebrating it in small ways since!!! These balloons ended up being popped with joy in our living room! So not only will we have fireworks, but we will also have a balloon popping content per Tyler's request!!!
