Just Like Poppy

We have already had a really exciting morning and it is only 9:00 am! Just like any other Tuesday I had to go to work and Nanny comes and picks Addyson up to keep her for the day. Well when I got out of the truck this morning I thought that I had unlocked the doors when I got out to get Addyson to put her in Nanny's car. (My doors do not unlock automatically when you turn the car off.)When I got to her door it was still locked. So I went back around to my door and it was locked! I had locked my keys and Addy in the car. I tried to call locksmiths and they were all different names but the same recording. (HOAX!) So I called the police department and they sent out the firefighters. Addyson was calm as could be while waiting for them to get her out. She thought it was great that firefighters "just like Poppy" were rescuing her. ha! Addyson could not stop saying "just like Poppy!" They were great.

Daddy's Prize

Daddy promised her a prize if she was a good girl at the doctors office when she got her shots. So he gave her a choice between a "chino" from Starbucks, she loves them, or ice cream. She told him she wanted pink ice cream. So that is what she got! And she sat and ate every last bite of it. Isn't this face just adorable?

2 Year Check Up

Today was Addyson's 2 year check up. She was so excited to get to go see "Dr. Keish" as she calls him. The nurse weighed her on the big girl scale and she thought that was just great. She weighed all of 37 pounds! And when I say all of it I mean it. She is getting to be hard to carry around. She is solid as a rock! She stood nice and tall for the nurse to check her heighth and she was 35 inches tall. Almost 3 feet but not quite. She was very still for the doctor when he was checking her out. She especially liked him looking in her ears. The doctor said that she was one healthy girl. She had to get 2 shots today. I had told her yesterday that she was going to get a shot. She has been watching her Nanny give herself insulin and was not scared at all. She said " I be a big girl like Nanny. It not hurt!" Well she made it through the finger prick and was fine, but the shots she was just not up for. She did so good though sat very still with tears coming down her face. This was only the second time that I was in the room with her when she gets her shots. Normally I stand right outside the door because I have this thing with needles. But I am trying to get over it and thought the best way to do that was to conquer my fears and stay in the room with her while she gets her shots. I felt so bad leaving the room everytime that I knew that I was going to have to suck it up and stay in the room with her. So needless to say Mommy did really good today too!

Addy has not been taking naps on the days that I don't work. It is hard for me to put her down when she wants to be with me because I wasn't with her the day before. So today after she went to the doctor I think that she was just so worn out from the shots and the whole day that she decided to give it up and take a nap. I just do not know what to do with myself this is unusual at our house these days. Well I better get back to my "me" time and get some things done that I have been dying to do.

Old Technology... New Home Decor

My "old technology"
So about a week and a half ago I posted on Facebook that I was in need of an old console t.v, hence the title "old technology." In less than a few hours someone at messaged me and said that they had one. I messaged her back and she said that I could pick it up any time. So about 2 days later I went and picked it it. The sweet lady was from a church that my dad use to pastor. I tried to offer her money for it but insisted I just have it. It is super nice. After posting this on facebook all of my friends curiousity had piqued. They were all interested in what I was going to do with it. Now that all of you think that I am crazy. I have started to take this "old technology" and form it into my own peice of home decor. I have never done anything like this before but would love to start doing a lot more of it. I just love some of the things that I have found that people have made their own with just some elbow grease and a little paint. Well I know that you are dying to see what I have done so far on it. With out any further blabbing...  here is what I have done so far.

This is my "new home decor" so far. Excuse my husbands legs in the picture. He took out the t.v part for me. He is so good to do that kind of stuff for me. I hope to get the rest done pretty soon. You know we stay pretty busy around here.

No Surgery for Me!

After a month of preparing myself for going under anathesia and the IV, because those two things I dread more than anything, I am NOT having surgery thanks to good ole bronchitis. This is the fifth time this year that I have had bronchitis and I am totally annoyed by this sickness. I was really disappointed that I was not having surgery because preparing yourself mental for something like this is the hardest part and I had reached that point at the begining of the week. Now I have a whole month to sit and think about what could happen and how much the IV is going to hurt. Ha! I know that I am crazy but I can handle all the pain that comes after the surgery but cannot stand the thought of a needle in my hand or bend of my arm or back side of my wrist. I know that sounds pitiful, but I just am really afraid of IV's!

So you ask what kind of surgery am I having? Well about 6 years ago I had a skiing accident and hurt my knee. Ever since then I have had problems with it. They told me at some point I was more than likely going to have surgery. So about 2 months ago a friend of mine dropped by unexpectedly and scared me. When she did I jumped and came down on it the wrong way. I had an MRI and they found that I had torn my meniscus. I am sure that the skiing accident just made the meniscus weak and when I came down on it the wrong way it just torn in half. So I am having surgery to repair my meniscus.

So now until Nov. 22nd I will be preparing myself for my surgery. I will tell my husband a million times how nervous I am and my daughter will hear me and she will say "Nanny, you nervous?" And by Nov. 19 I will be mentally ready for my surgery, because believe me physically I have been ready since my accident. It has not been easy but when your a mommy and a wife and work a job you just have to suck it up and keep on.

Another Pumpkin Patch

I am so behind on things that have been going on. We have been super busy and have had no time for "blogging". But I know that I have to do it cause this is like Addyson's baby book. I don't want to forget the things that we did  or the new words that she said. So on with the post enough of all the excuses of why I haven't posted in forever.

We visited a local farm with Jimmy's parents. They have a bunch of activities for small children. It was such a great trip. Addyson loved it. Her favorite part was the pumpkins of course. She is completely obsessed with pumpkins right now. She carries a small pumpkin around the house with her all day long. It is so cute! Oh yeah and her other favorite part of the trip was getting an icee while we were there. Yum! The drive there and back was beautiful. The leaves had already started to change making the drive even better. So glad that we found this great place.

 This place was super cute.
 It had a petting zoo and pig races.
 Milking the cow.

 Drinking her icee. Yum Yum
Her favorite part. The pumpkins!

A Week of NO Work

Ahh.. a week with no work for my husband or me! It was amazing. We spent our week at defeated creek campground. We had such a great time. We went last year and Addy was not that much into it, but this year she absoulutly loved it. She played so hard every day that by the time it was 8:30- 9:00 she was more than ready for bed. We ate a ton of food while we were there and I am not exadurating when I say a ton! Everything we ate was so so good though. While we were camping we also took our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. Addyson loved being able to pick out her own pumpkin. All she kept saying while we were there was "big punkins"! We love every second of our trip. Can't wait to go back next year.
Fishing with her Daddy for the first time!
