Momma's Wild Child

What a day, what a day to take to
What a way, what a way to make it through
What a day, what a day to take to a wild child....
(Wild Child, Enya)


Ainslie is my wild child. Wild at heart, wild in spirit. I love that about her. But, she also makes me crazy! I asked Brian tonight,"I wonder how long it will take until her hair grows long enough to NOT hang forward in her face like she's some wild animal?" I think I can wait a while longer. I want to let her be a baby for as long as she can be. Wild child or not.

Visiting the Doc's Office

Ella and Finn went in for their 4 year and 2 month old check up, respectively.

Ella took 5 shots to the legs like a CHAMP with not so much as a grimace. She squinted her eyes during the last one while she discussed the subtle differences between the Disney Princesses with the nurse administering her shots. (I later asked her why she could easily take shots without crying, but couldn't keep from whining while asking to watch her Barbie Thumbelina for the 4th time in a row.) She got the movie for taking the shots so well.

Finn had a shot too. He only cried for like 2 seconds after his. The big shocker in his visit is that he weighs 15 lbs and 13 oz. He doesn't officially turn 3 months until the 20th. :) Apparently there is some kind of fertilizer in my milk.

The only person NOT getting shots cried more than the two who did: Ainslie. Apparently, she doesn't like being pinned up in the little room waiting on her siblings. (Ah.... "What will the terrible two's be like?!" you ask. Me too.)

In other news: we have been tracking some puberty-like symptoms of Ella's for about the past 6 months. After a previous visit with the Dr. and the progression of her symptoms in the past months, Ella is being referred to a Pediatric Endocrinologist for testing. It could possibly be precocious puberty. Please pray for our family as we try to get this all figured out.

I have no time to say...

.... hello, or goodbye or pretty much, anything.
I have been soooo busy doing things that I feel like I have neglected my poor blog.
I have alot things to discuss, a cute baby boy, my rebel toddler and my cute newly turned 4-year-old. But, like I said, there is no time.
However! Spring break is coming up soon, so maybe then!
In the mean time, I am getting psyched for Baby Ilgy! Tomorrow! :)

I have 2 lovely daughters and 2 handsome sons, who keep me very busy and a husband who keeps me grounded. I received my BA in Graphic Design Communication in 2003. A year and a half later after working in corporate America as a graphic designer and living through my OWN REAL LIFE "OFFICE SPACE" I got certified as art teacher. I have been teaching since the fall of 2004.
