So lets go back to about 2 months ago. It was late in the night, Annalise had been asleep for an hour or so. All of a sudden she started flopping around on the bed. At first I thought she was just kicking off her covers (she doesn't like to be covered up)... but then a couple of minuets later she did it again and again and again. She'd kick her legs up in the air, her body would tense up and then she'd be done. My heart started pounding and I freaked out.

I went and got Mike whom I think was watching tv at the time. He came in and watched her but he didn't seem to concerned. I WAS FREAKING OUT! We woke her up to see if she did it while she was awake (she did not)... so after a few she went back to sleep. As I had fallen into sleep she started again and I went and got Mike and this time I was crying because I had no idea what was going on. He grabbed the computer and we laid in bed looking at what it could possibly be. He was thinking that her tummy hurt and it was just a reaction to that. All I could think was taking her the ER my baby is having seizures.

We woke her up again and let her watch her movie while we talked and Mike calmed me down. We were up until about 2 or 3 and we finally let her go back to sleep. She did not do it the rest of the night. Since that night it's been in the back of my mind, but I wasn't as worried... maybe it was just a freak thing, maybe she was teething and it was her reaction to the pain.

Fast forward to 3 nights ago. 11pm she started again. I didn't go straight to Mike cause he is REALLY passive when it comes to anything and really pisses me off. So I went and got the computer and looked up all possible things that could be going on. I let it go on for 2 hours and I could not stand it anymore. I woke Mike up and he came and woke Annalise up. She was not a happy camper at all. She did not want to be awake and cried and screamed at us the whole time. After about 2o minuets or so we let her go back to sleep and she didn't do it the rest of the evening.

I took her to the doctors yesterday. For a rash she has and the night thing. The doctor didn't seem to concerned either... which really pisses me off, but I'll bear with the damn doctor for the time being. I did notice a trend in the two instances. Annalise had stayed up late both times and was overly tired. So the doctor thinks she may have issues with being overly tired. She wants me to record her doing it (if she does again), so she can see exactly what it is she is doing.

So for the time being I'm not gonna stress, but if she does it again I'm gonna be mad. Please pray that it's nothing terrible and she'll just grow out of it.

I'm bad...

Haven't gone to the gym in 7 days. Been sick all freaking week and I'm miserable. So is Annalise, she has a horse voice. So sad. Last night we were both up all night coughing.

Tomorrow we have another baseball game. Then we are going to the Lacey Fun Fair... then off to do some scrapbooking! I've been collecting a few things here and there, so lets see if I can get a book put together by myself!

Well our household is gonna be going through some changes. I'm not gonna go into it right now, but I'll fill you all in later when I have a moment!

Poo #2

Annalise went potty in the toilet again this morning. We were hanging with Mike in the bedroom and she got this look on her face and said, "poop". I asked her if she wanted to go on the toilet and she ran to the living room. (Where we have the training potty seat, we are trying to get Ryker to go in the potty!) So I sat her down and she was getting distracted. So I put one of her movies on, and little did I know a few minuets later she poo'd!!!!

I'm so proud of her, she is AMAZING!

Oh the list keeps getting bigger...

My mother in law makes chocolate suckers and I'm starting a shop for her on Etsy... and will be making them to! I will be making a trip to her house in the next week or so to set up her shop... and then I'm gonna learn how to make these treats and will be part of the business!

So Mike started playing softball with some of the people at his work. I guess they are starting a team. Anyway, Mike really wants me to play also. (I used to play when I was younger)... So for mothers day he got me some softball stuff. A glove, balls and a PINK baseball shirt! Mandy also got a mitt so she could play with us to.

We went to the park yesterday and played around, I got to hit a few balls... surprisingly enough I can still hit and I can still catch the ball. Even though I was a bit scared of being hit by the ball, I did pretty good for not playing in YEARS!

So there is another thing our family has started doing. It was actually awesome today. Mandy, Tia, all the kids and Mike went to the park again today (mothers day) and hit some balls around. I sat there and watched my husband coach Jared and just fell in love with my family all over again. We've evolved into a better family. It seems to get a little better everyday. Getting outdoors is helping me with my stress and my migraines... and my depression! (maybe my doctor was right).

So I've started working out at the gym, softball and scrapbooking... on top of 4 kids and keeping my household up. Lets see how I do?


So I have started my new hobby of scrapbooks! My sis-in laws and I made one for my mother in law... and I got the bug. So Tia and I went to the store and bought some stuff, and then we went back with Mandy and got some more. And for Mothers Day... I got a gift card for the scrapbook store down the road. I went there today after our mothers day celebration and got a few more things. My head is spinning with all the things I want to do.

But I am gonna start with just 1 book and a small book. It's gonna be a theme of Summer... So we'll see how that goes and I'll keep you updated. I am soooooooo excited!

This week...

So this week is our every other week family dinners. I've got Tuesdays (as I always do)... and my day I'm making a Mexican macaroni dinner. I'm also going to shoot for working out 3 days. Last week was only 2. I hurt my arm and it's starting to mend so I'll be good to go for this week.

I also started scrap booking yesterday and it's fun and I'm having fun!!!
