Bloggy-ness (will be long... it's been a while.)

I haven't blogged in what feels like forever. I've been just a bit overwhelmed with life in general. I haven't even checked my email. I don't want to see or talk to anyone. It's just one of those times. But I figured, so much has happened, if I don't write it down... I'll forget it all. So here it is... I'm starting with now, and working my way back. Sorry if that's confusing.
Maddie has the bluest eyes!
My girls!
It started out okay enough. I had a DR. appt for my wrists and such. So i got the girls ready to take over to krystins. After I got all our stuff ready to go out the door, I remembered I didn't have my insurance card in my wallet, so I ran upstairs to get it. When i came back down, Madison was kicking in her carseat carrier funny. I came down to see her, and she was gagging. Taylor said "Madison eat!" Lately we've had issues with Taylor trying to feed madison. So far she's had chocolate, fruit snacks, gold fish, milk, juice... It was turning into a problem. (Just typing this story is making me sick to my stomach!) Lately we've also been letting Taylor eat Jelly Beans that we bought for easter. Taylor tried to feed maddie some jelly beans. I COULD NOT unbuckle the STUPID snaps on Maddie's car seat. I just kept screaming "Madison!" while I tried frantically to get her out of her seat. I finally unbuckled her and had scooped one jelly bean out of her mouth, but she was still choking. Every once in a while, there would be a tiny cough, but mostly just gagging and choking. I ran and grabbed the phone while turning maddie over on her stomach in my arms. I was beating her back and trying to decide if I should call 911 or Chris. I dialed chris's number first while I was still beating on her back with her stomach down. While it was ringing, Maddie finally threw up and the other jelly bean came up with it. Needless to say, by this point I was Panicing. I was crying so hard I couldn't even tell chris what was happening. All I could really get out was "Taylor gave, Madison, Choking" I'm sure he was freaking out a bit too. I was finally able to tell him what had happened. He calmed me down a bit. But I was still crying. The odd thing was Maddie was fine... no crying... nothing. She was just sitting there like nothing had happened. Taylor was standing beside me the whole time saying "Mommy sad? I'm sorry Mommy." It was SO heartbreaking. It makes me tear up just thinking about her telling me how sorry she was. She did understand too... After dinner tonight, chris gave taylor a couple jelly beans, she took one in each hand and said, "Maddie No eat." I hope she remembers it. And they will not be alone again like that... No way.
"Madison No Eat!"

I did get to Krystin's, and then off to my appt. I was diagnosed with carpal Tunnel! Great! The dr kinda hinted at me not crocheting anymore, but that won't happen. I enjoy it too much. He did give me a steroid pack, some pain pills, and splints for my hands that I have to wear 24/7, except for the shower. Once my hands aren't hurting so bad, then I can go to just wearing them at night. I can't wait!
When Chris got home from work, we both went in different directions... he took the girls with him. he went to target for a a couple movies... then off to best buy (he had gotten gift cards for his birthday.) He bought Quantum of solace, How I met your mother season 3, the Italian job (why we didn't already own that one I have no idea!) and a cd (can't think of who right now, I'm tired.) I went to the post office, Krogers for my perscriptions, and then off to sonic for dinner (1/2 priced burger night on tuesdays... It's becoming something of a tradition!)
I had the perfect night with the girls tonight (chris is out playing basketball!) first, they both took great baths! I even let taylor play in my shaving cream (her new fun thing to do in the tub.) And Maddie LOVED watching taylor splash and play in the tub. I love it when they crack each other up. After their baths, we went into their room and read The rockabye farm. After that, we had prayers. taylor's getting very good at saying her own prayers.
Taylor - Heavy Fawa
Me - Thank you
Taylor - Day
Me - Bless
Taylor - Daddy
Me - Bless
Taylor - Madison
Me - Bless
Taylor - Mommy
Me - Bless
Taylor - Taylor
Me - Bless
Taylor - Granma, Granpa
Me - Bless
Taylor - Mamie, Papa
Me - In the Name of Jesus Christ
Taylor - AMEN!
I Love it.
Was pretty uneventful... nothing real noteworthy... except I watched twilight for the 3rd time since I bought it.
Taylor in mommy's cinderella shoes!

We had a great day at church. Relief Society was awesome. Have you ever had a lesson that you know was meant JUST FOR YOU? That's what happened to me this past Sunday. I had to read a story aloud. The story I read was almost exactly like an experience I had once. I know I was meant to read that story and remember my experience. It was a much needed reminder how much my Heavenly Father knows me personally and loves me.
Here's a pic of Maddie after church... Just chillin in her swing!
Chris's Birthday. My handsome's getting old. We had a fun little party with some good friends. Chris got some good birthday wishes via text, facebook, phone calls... I think it was a good day for him... He had already gotten most of his gifts from me... But I suprized him with a gift card from the girls. He also got a New Titans jersey, the new Halo game, and a book. I think he enjoyed it. I know he Likes his presents. He's worn/played/read them enough... And he's already used most of his gift card... so I'm guessing It was a good day.
My Parents also left this past Saturday for a trip to TAHITI. I'm so jealous. And I can't wait for them to get back... I need my mommy :) I have so much to talk to her about. Chris's mom is away right now too... Where did all the mom's go? I need to talk!!!!!! LOL.
well, technically, Saturday Morning
Me and chris stayed up late Friday night... at like 12:04 chris said, "Hey, It's after midnight!" so i went out and bought Twilight. Chris, being the great man that he is, sat with me and watched it... til we passed out. We finished it on saturday. I've currently watched it 3 times, and planning on another one in the next day or two. I notice different things everytime I watch it. I still don't think it's a great movie, edward's still not cute, jacob isn't either... but like rita said... it reminds me of the book, which I love. So there... yes, the movie isn't good... the acting sucks. But I'll still watch it.

Last wednesday we went to the zoo with my friends from the white house ward and krystin. it was a great morning to go, and I'm loving that I decided to buy the membership. We got our cards in now so I'll be going all the time. Madison did very well sitting up in the rental stroller. And there was enough room for both my girls in the single stroller. I was excited to save the 2 bucks. After we had lunch at the zoo, we came home and my friend Devrie came over and her boys played for a bit with taylor. it was fun to have them over and i hope she's able to come over again.
We also talked about my next project. I'm going to make a couple/few busy books. I'm trying to decide how I want to do them. I"m just in the planning stages right now... but I can't wait until i actually start getting the peices and sewing. I'm so excited. maybe I'll even finish this one! :)

Well, I think that's about caught up. There are tons of new things taylor is saying, but i can't think of them now. I'll make a list soon. She's getting pretty funny... and sassy. So be on the look out!
Maddie at the Dr. office last Week.


  1. I enjoyed reading your post! I'm sorry to hear about the CT...I feel your pain girl! The only thing I can say about it is take it seriously!

    You don't have to give up crocheting...just ease up on how much you do it or you will absolutely be in chronic pain. It will not go away (pain)unless you allow yourself to heal.

    Ok, enough soap box! Your girls are adorable! I was freakin' out right along with you about the choking! SO SCARY!! It's ok to cry, too! Every Mom has been there!

    Love you Keaven...take it easy!

  2. WOW, you have been busy! I hope you are doing okay! Im trying to send a hug via comment - are you feeling it?
    I didnt know Chris's birthday was so close to Mikes! Happy Birthday Chris!
    Hey, Next time you go to the Nashville Zoo let me know, Id LOVE to meet you up there and let the girls play... I have been wanting to take Savannah for so long... Plus Spring Break is coming up, it would be something fun for all the kids to do!!! :)
    I hope to see you Saturday... I know if nothing else helps you feel better - THAT WILL !!!!
    Love ya,

  3. ok the SUPERMAN song came on everyime it comes on I think of old times =)

  4. CT huh that sucks big time! And I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought Edward and Jacob should've been hotter! I can't believe how fast the girls are growing! We need to do something soon I need some out-of-the-house time :)
