Rest in Peace little Gracie

I've been part of an online message board for over 4yrs now. When I was pregnant with Seamus I met alot of ladies on that board that were also due in July with me. One of these ladies was a gal not too far from me but up in B.C. Canada, we never got to meet but we talked often. Her little Grace Ellen Breanne was born on July 4th, 2006, just 14days before Seamus was. Gracie got H1N1. (Gracie's Page) and had been in and out of the hospital a few times. Poor Gracie was hospitalized 17days ago for the H1N1 being in her lungs. Gracie fought a couragous battle, but sadly her little body couldn't take it any more.
Rest in Peace Grace!

Seamus update

I posted here about Kieran's Early Headstart FC noticing an issue with Seamus' eye(she was his old FC also, but he aged out at 3yrs). Well we had his eye appointment today (11/16). The verdict is...its not a lazy eye, but he does need glasses. He is very far sighted, which explains why he can see things me and hubby can't (we are very very nearsighted, me a -5.5 in R eye and -5 in L, hubby -4.75 and -4.5 respectively), but because of that he has a very hard time seeing up close, things that are easy for hubby and I to see. The eye doc was telling me thats why it seems he crosses his eyes or seems to have a lazy eye, because he is focusing too hard on the object that is close up. His left eye is worse then the right, the one we thought was lazy, so he has a stronger prescription in that eye. The eye doc has us coming back in January to test him again, she's hoping that with the glasses his eye sight will improve if not then he will need eye exercises. She didn't say what eye exercises are but I'm assuming that means patching one eye for a while then the other?
His glasses are blue and in a rectangle shape, he picked them out, it was cute, after trying on about 6 pairs we got to the ones he chose and he said "I like these." My only issue is that hes supposed to have them on all day, which isn't going to be possible, during his quiet time I will have to take them away because he will play with them and break them. I'm just not sure how to go about getting him to keep them on, he sees me with my glasses every day, but hes also wild and crazy (I still love him lol) and I'm scared he will break them and not wear them.

Aloha Friday #2

Aloha Friday at Island Life

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

The weather here has been crazy the last few years, in 2007-2008 there was over 120" of snow in total for the winter, in 2008-2009 we had just over 160" and 37.5" of that fell within 37hours(everything shut down it was a MESS!). This year they are saying its going to be super rainy...I dont think I believe it, I know El Nino is here this year but something tells me we are in for another snow dump. We've already had snow luckily it didn't stick, but its been anywhere from 30-50 for the high and 17-40's for the lows.

How has your weather been lately?

Gettin Creative

I won a 100% wool sweater from a giveaway, so tonight(well Wed.) I decided to use my mom's semi working sewing machine that I'm borrowing(I have no clue what I did cause its not working right all the sudden) and made Kieran a pair of longies and a soaker! The longies....well lets say they will work but may not be the prettiest thing in the world, and I already knew how to do the soaker I just used the pattern I use to make fleece ones.I'm thinking I may need to sew in an extra soaker in the wet zone if its possible after I've already sewn it all together?

I hope you all had a good Halloween! We sure did. Seamus was a little Rock Star, and Kieran was a leopard. We couldn't find any costumes we liked for Seamus, since hes too big for most 3t stuff an ok in 4t's we were limited because the 4-5 stuff mostly had masks which he wont do, and the 3-4t he didn't like, so we made one up. Little Kieran fit just comfy in her 3-6mo outfit with a long-sleeve onesie, baby legs, socks and a cloth diaper under...shes tiny lol.

We first went to the mall with my brother and his wife and my nephew(who is 4days older then Kieran but he was due after her). Then afterwords we went home(had some really bad feminine issues that needed fixed) and took Seamus(and Kieran) around our neighborhood, then a friend of mine asked to come over to her house and take Seamus around there to get her out of the house. My friend has a 5mo old little boy and she dressed him as a monkey though everyone thought he was a bear. Seamus had a kick out of my friends 17yr old brother who dressed up to go along and took Seamus up to the doors with us. It was fun...then I fell...I'm a big klutz so it was to be expected but I normally trip, I don't normally get a huge rock under the arch of my foot and fall...now I have either a sprained or strained ankle...Anyway we stayed out way too late till around 10pm and Seamus knoked out when we got home, Kieran didn't she decided it was play time the booger.

Getting ready to go
