Christmas 2010

I have had a perfect series of four Christmases. Tammy's battle for the Power Wheels Jeep paid off by starting our Christmas off big. G had tons of fun with all of his cousins on both sides. Baby S was held by everyone and was a perfect doll. The family time was excellent. The Food was great throughout, and the gifts were awesome.
I hope everyone else had as wonderful of a holiday season as I have had this year.

So G has been pining for a helicopter, with a button to spin the rotor, for Christmas. Tammy took him to see Santa and he told him he wanted the helicopter. Then when it was time to go he said no, i don't have my helicopter yet! Santa wisely said, "I'll bring it to your house!" G replied, "Oh, and then you can play trains with me!"
So Tammy installed the iPhone Talking Santa app. Tonight when we told G that Santa was coming tonight, he got her phone, launched the Talking Santa app, and told it the following, like he was on the phone with Santa:
"You have my hel'copter? With the button? Okay! See you later!"

Suffice to say, Santa has the helicopter.

Christmas traditions

Some things are special just because...

One of my favorite Christmas memories is putting the lights on a tree my grandma made. She made two of these, one sat on her kitchen table every Christmas and the other she made for a friend of my mom's who loved the tree.

Last year this friend gave me the tree, i had forgotten that she even had it! She had saved it for 30 years for when i had a child.

So this year G took on my tradition and decorated the tree, I have to admit that it actually made me cry. My grandma was such a special person to me and thanks to a special friend I have a piece of my past.

What a great day!

Since G isn't in school right now, I thought it would be fun to host a Christmas party at our house with all of his friends. The list went from having 5 to having 10. We had so much fun, the kids played so well together and I even got some quality time with my friends.

We painted trains, played in the fake snow and ate yummy food.

I am exhausted tonight, but feel extremely blessed to have such great friends and hopefully their children and ours will be as great of friends as we are!

blah blah blah

So lately I have felt very grown up, I don't know if it's having two kids or if I am just getting older "gasp".

We have been super busy lately, between being sick, I am back to work, holiday events, introducing baby girl to the world and so forth. I have noticed that as selfish as it sounds that by the time the weekend arrives that I really just want to spend time with just my family. So if you don't hear from us as much don't take it personal we are just busy being parents and loving every moment of it!


Tuesday, December 7, 2010


I have to admit that I have become somewhat of a homebody since having baby girl, for one it takes a lot more time to get both of them ready and out the door and another is that G is not a fond of carts... need I say more.

Well I decided that I was going to be brave and do Santa pictures by myself. Our appointment was at 10:40 and I started getting ready around 8 and good thing I did. G's apparently has grown about two inches since I bought his Christmas outfit so after trying on three different outfits I was finally pleased with his outfit. He on the other hand was not. Baby girl was easy it only took me changing her outfit twice.

The whole way there I kept pumping up Santa. I told G that he was so lucky that he was going to be able to see Santa and that we had a very special visit planned. The moment we walked in he was all smiles, he walked straight up to him and jumped on his lap. We managed to get several really good pictures. One thing I forgot to mention is that the past month every time we have been in the store and G has wanted something we have told him that we would tell Santa and that he would maybe get it for him at Christmas...back to the pictures. Once we where done with the pictures I told G that it was time to tell Santa goodbye and to get down off his lap and his response was he hasn't given me my helicopter yet. Santa being the great Santa he was responded that he was going to bring it to our house on Christmas. G's response was "Yes, you can play choo choos with me"... I love being a mom.

So much to blog, but so little time

The past couple months have flown by so quickly and I am very aware that my blogging has slowed down. Life has been busy, but wonderful. Sylvie is growing so fast, smiles constantly and is so loved by her big brother. I was unsure and nervous about how he would adjust and he has done wonderfully especially for only being two.

We spent Thanksgiving at home this year due to us all being sick, didn't want to risk getting Dandy & GranDawn sick and truthfully didn't have the energy to make the trip. I will blog more later about the day. It turned out to be a really special day for us.

We our in full force getting ready for Christmas. Josh and I are like two kids when it comes to shopping for Gid and Sylvie, I think we truthfully are a little out of control :-) The benefits of having two incomes and only two kids. Going tomorrow to do Santa pictures which I am sure will be interesting.

Just wanted to take a moment and post some updated pictures.

Shutterfly - My hobby

So I have to say that a lot of my friends are extremely talented. One of my best friends from Cali can sing like an angel and has started painting, I have to admit she is totally awesome at it. I have another friend that can sew anything, a friend that can crochet, another friend that makes gorgeous cakes, and the list goes on... I on the other hand am not artsy. I have tried - taken classes and so on. I was whining, I mean talking to J the other night about this and he said that my talent is Shutterfly. I started laughing and my reply was that it doesnt take talent to use Shutterfly, just determination to set aside the time. I have to admit I love all their products from their birth announcements to how easy it is to upload pictures to I am excited this year to start working on our Christmas cards that will of course come from them. I counted and I have done over 50 photobooks. 34 are just of our family.

Tonight I was spending some time with G and I grabbed one of the books to have him look at it with me and his response was No- Mommy I want the train one. This being one of the books I did for him this summer of our trip to the Museum of Transportation. This melted my heart that he remembered that book.

I always considered it an addiction, not a hobby, but I think I have changed my mind. My favorite memory growing up was looking through all the photo albums my grandma had and I hope some day that my grandchildren will enjoy looking through these as much as I enjoyed making them.

Fall festivities

So we went apple picking Saturday, at the Eckert's Millstadt Family Fun Farm, with Tammy's parents and some of G's cousins. We had a great time and saw several friends unexpectedly. We started the day off right at IHoP with the new cinni-stax for us, a giant chocolate chip whipped cream smily pancake for G, and S had some milk and slept through breakfast :).

There were horse rides which G rode 3 times: (see cousin A on the horse behind him)

Plus G and I rode a camel! I kept thinking of the bit in the Seuss book Go Dog Go with the seven hump wump that belongs to Mr. Gump. Pictures of this will have to be added from the real camera.
Then we rode the carnival rides with the cousins, who screamed mightily inside the spinning apple ride (like the teacups, but enclosed). We had it spinning faster than anyone else riding. Honestly I was slowing them down to make sure everyone's lunch stayed down :)
Then we rode the swings, and the airplane swings, and drove the plywood tractor model (big win).

Then we went and picked some apples, while family friends Kay and Charles watched (spoiled probably) baby S.
Tammy has the good pics of that so look back later for them.

Sunday we started the day off right with homemade cinnamon apple swirls, that Tammy and G made with some apples from Saturday! Then went to the pumpkin patch and had even more fall fun with Cara, Eric, and Davin.

Naturally we rode a horse right away :)

Then Davin took G on the four wheeler barrel train, followed by a hay ride for all of us!

Here's a great picture of my beautiful wife with Baby S too. Check out that awesome hat Amanda made for her!

Anyway, we had a great time taking our kids out to enjoy the Fall weather and hang out with family and friends! Look for some extra pictures here once we get those pics off the real cameras :)

Two weeks

Well it's been two weeks now since the arrival of our little girl, and things have settled into a routine now. Our friends and family have been a tremendous help, mostly by bringing dinner. Everyone has also been great about helping us keep G aware that he is still important and making sure he gets plenty of attention. I will also give a special thank you to Tammy's parents, for watching Gideon when we were in the hospital, and to her mom, who has been over to help out most days since I've gone back to work.

The baby has a wonderful temperament. She's very calm most of the time, unless she's hungry or being changed. On that topic, I'd like to state that we can't seem to change her without her peeing while we're doing so. Everyone always says to watch out for boys peeing on you when you are changing them, but with G he went mid-change maybe 3 or 4 times. S has peed about 3/4 of the times we change her. I suppose the warning then may really be that boys can hit you with it... :)
Anyway, we've found our basic sleeping routine now, which is the same routine we used when we had G, which is basically that I take watch until about 1am and she has 1 to 6. I suspect this will vary over time with my part increasing, but since she is nursing, that middle shift still requires Tammy's involvement.
Tammy is looking great and up and about quite a bit. Her main limitation now is for lifting things. I think we're doing really well with all of the changes this time. It certainly helps to have some idea of what to expect, and experience to guide how we handle it.
Since I expect this blog will someday become a book that both kids will read, I'll add some advice here: when you do have children, share the load. It can be very tough waking up in the night and doing your turn at feeding/burping/changing/rocking,and you may think, maybe if I let them cry, my partner will get up and do it... Never do this. If you are very exhausted or sick, ask for a night off, or swap shifts. Maybe offer to watch them so the other can nap during the next day or something. Just be sure you plan it out. Sleep loss is a heavy hitter, and if one of you falls too far behind on it, you both will suffer frustration, anxiety, and irritation.
So, we're doing well, getting as much sleep as we can. Now here are some pictures of our first weeks as a family of four.

Just as she arrived:

We got this of G being a big brother at the hospital:

Here's Daddy's favorite pic of her at the hospital:

Here's Mommy ready to go home:

A little face she made:

And here's my happy family all cuddled together:

Anyway, I'd say we're off to a great start.

Here at last

Meet Sylvia Barbara Dalton born September 2. She weighed 8lbs 3oz and is 20 inches long.

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Almost time....

We are right at the 12 hour mark before baby Sylvie graces us with her presence. I decided to spend as much time with G today as possible and to finish up a couple of last minute things and at this point everything is almost done. I decided to go ahead and work tonight to keep busy and hoping that would help time fly and truthfully it has.

Thank you everyone for all the calls and text messages, I feel extremely loved and it has helped calm my nerves.

We have been talking about baby Sylvie for the past couple of months with G and I think yesterday he had enough of the talk, when we got up in the morning he said "lets go to the hospital and get Sylvie" I think someone else is ready to see this girl too.

So as of tomorrow we will be a family of four.

I like how that sounds.

Loving two...

So I have to admit the closer I get to having baby girl, the more my heart sorta melts a little. I am so excited to be adding to our family, I cannot even express the excitement to see her and hold her, to have two little ones in our life. It melts my heart every time I walk down our hall way and I look into G's and baby girls room. I feel so blessed.


there is a protective part of me with G that I know this little one is going to need lots of attention and will have more "needs" at first than he does now. He's had my undivided attention for two years and I am nervous how is going to handle sharing Daddy and I. The past two weeks the very thought of him being away from me while I am at the hospital brings tears to my eyes. Yes, he is staying with Pa and G-barba, but I am protective and as much as I like the break, I like being able to roll over and check on him on the monitor anytime during the night I want. I love that the past three weeks when he wakes up he calls for me... I love we take naps together and he hugs me anytime I ask... and I don't want anything to change our relationship.

I found this poem and I thought it was so appropriate.

So to my special little boy this is for you....

Loving Two

I walk along holding your 2-year-old hand, basking in the glow of our magical relationship. Suddenly I feel a kick from within, as if to remind me that our time alone is limited. And I wonder: how could I ever love another child as I love you?

Then she is born, and I watch you. I watch the pain you feel at having to share me as you've never shared me before.

I hear you telling me in your own way, Please love only me. And I hear myself telling you in mine, I cant, knowing, in fact, that I never can again.

You cry. I cry with you. I almost see our new baby as an intruder on the precious relationship we once shared. A relationship we can never quite have again.

But then, barely noticing, I find myself attached to that new being, and feeling almost guilty. I'm afraid to let you see me enjoying her as though I am betraying you.

But then I notice your resentment change, first to curiosity, then to protectiveness, finally to genuine affection.

More days pass, and we are settling into a new routine. The memory of days with just the two of us is fading fast.

But something else is replacing those wonderful times we shared, just we two. There are new times only now, we are three. I watch the love between you grow, the way you look at each other, touch each other.

I watch how she adores you as I have for so long. I see how excited you are by each of her new accomplishments. And I begin to realize that I haven't taken something from you, Ive given something to you. I notice that I am no longer afraid to share my love openly with both of you. I find that my love for each of you is as different as you are, but equally strong. And my question is finally answered, to my amazement. Yes, I can love another child as much as I love you only differently.

And although I realize that you may have to share my time, I now know you'll never share my love. There is enough of that for both of you .you each have your own supply.

I love you-both. And I thank you both for blessing my life.

80 Years!

We celebrated my Grandma D's 80th birthday on Sunday. Yes in the heat and yes outdoors. I always knew I was from a big family, but this was reaffirmed this weekend when I was taking pictures. One thing that my dad's family does not have in common with my mom's is that they dont take very many pictures. My other Grandma wouldn't leave the house with out her camera being in her pocketbook(purse). So I was determined to take lots of pictures on Sunday. This was a great plan until I got started and realized this wasnt going to be an easy task. I wanted to make my grandma a scrapbook with all her kids, grandkids, great-grandkids and great-great grandkids.... about half way into the project I was regretting my decision but I was determined to see it through, heat and all.

Trying to get families or groups are not always easy when she has 6 kids, 19 grandkids, over 31 great-grandkids and 2 great-great grandchildren. I would say about 80% of the family was there, not counting 8 of her siblings.

Here are some of the groups....I told you I was from a large family :-)

Tonka trucks

Well my brother bestowed his Tonka trucks on me with the condition that when I had a little boy he gets to play with them. I unboxed them today, and G found them and went crazy for them. Here's the video. Oh, and G says thanks Uncle Brad :)

A bit of art for the baby

When we decided on the baby's room theme, I was planning to paint letters to match it, like, Eiffel Tower on the A, that sort of thing. Then Tammy mentioned wanting some children around the world stuff to hang in there, and I said, "Well I can do that." It became much more involved of a project than originally planned. First I made sketches of the children:

Then painted some precut wooden people popsicle sticks:

Then did some woodcutting to make the hats and hair:

Then I decided to cut my own front piece to be the Earth, and used my Dremel to round the edges off:

Then I painted the Earth:

Then put it all together and we have the complete result (drumroll please):

Look closely to see our family on top of the world... :)

I'm still debating whether to paint her name on it, or make it a clock (it does have 24 people so a clock would work well). Still, this has turned out far more impressive than I had originally imagined, and I hope she will treasure it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Terrible Thursday = Terrific Thursday

Yesterday started off on a bad note, Gideon woke up in a bad mood, we where late getting out the door due to a diaper explosion and then when we got his school he had a total meltdown. He is usually really good about going to preschool, yesterday was not the case, tears ran like the Mississippi. Great way to start the day. I head to work and the day did not get better. Sitting in a chair for 8 hours when you are 8 months pregnant is not fun. I usually try getting up and walking around ever hour or two (per doctor's orders) but that didnt even seem to help. My computer locked up about 4 times which is so much fun to sit and have to restart all your programs. So by the time 5:00 came I was out the door still in a bad mood.

Then I walked into preschool to pick up G and there is nothing that can make you smile more than to have your little boy run up to you and say "I had fun with my friends", my mood started going uphill. He is talking non-stop now which I love so on the way home he talked about how he played outside in the sprinklers and he played with playdo.... when we got home Josh was already home grilling steaks(I love a man that knows when to step up without being asked). It ended up being the perfect night, weather wise. Josh and Gideon played in the pool and I sat out soaking my feet enjoying my family. We headed in about 8:30 and G went to bed without any problems and I am happy to say that I was in bed by 10. I love days that start out bad end up being great!

Getting excited...

So we are getting closer to baby girl's arrival date. I am scheduled for the c-section for Sept. 1, but my doctor and I both feel that I will probably go earlier. Baby Girl is super active, she moves all the time which is such an amazing feeling. I have been having contractions for the past couple two weeks, but nothing has been consistent. I told J the other night as G was sitting on my lap that their is no greater feeling than holding one child and feeling another one move inside of you.

I have been working on her room this week, thanks to several friends this little girl is going to be one well clothed little girl. The clothes keep coming and I have to admit they are all adorable. I told J that I am going to have my own little doll. I always thought that you received less gifts for the second child vs the first, in this case, I don't think its going to be true. You can tell with a lot of my friends that their hasn't been a little girl on the scene for several years.

J and I are super curious to see what she is going to look like, I am so excited to just hold her.

Sing-along G

So for months now G has been making nighttime song requests, mommy's song (wheels on the bus), choo choo song, daddy's song, stars (twinkle twinkle), etc. But this past week he started singing along with us. So now as we sing him to sleep he hums and throws in a word or two that he has picked out of the songs we sing. It's exceedingly cute.

Of course that sort of cuteness makes it even harder to get up and leave the room before he goes to sleep... Especially with him saying, "Daddy sit," every time. I know it is good to teach him how to fall asleep on his own, but I think it may be tougher on the parents for all of the guilt you feel while doing so.

I am blessed....

I have a wonderful husband,
an adorable child, a little bundle that will
grace us with her presence soon.
I live in my dream home,
I like my job,
We have great friends,
a wonderful family, immediate and adopted.

I never want to take for granted the life I have.

I feel very blessed.

Big Ted

So I still have my two teddy bears from my childhood, Big Ted and Little Ted, and since we had G they've been in his room. The other week we changed out some furniture and Big Ted moved to our dresser during the rearranging. Today, G was extra fussy at nap time so Tammy put him in our bed with her. She was downstairs when he woke up crying. When he calmed down enough to use words he wouldn't move off the bed and kept saying, "Bad bear get me!" and pointing at Big Ted. I'm a bit crushed, as that bear had to be next to me every night for me to go to sleep when I was a child. I blame Toy Story 3 with the evil bear for this... Now I have to convince G that this one is a good bear...

Baby Girl Update

Everything is going great with Baby Girl, we had an ultrasound this week to see how things where progressing. Everything looked great, she weighs 3.5 lbs and is in the 45% for weight. I am feeling great, a little tired but doing ok. I still haven't gained any weight, which I am happy to say and I tested negative for gestational diabetes!!

It was great getting to see her move around and we could see she has hair! It was standing straight up around her head. Super cute. One of the reasons that we are having such a hard time deciding the name is that we like one name if she is a red head and another if she has dark hair. According to my father-in-law, J was born with a head full of hair. I told him that I was hoping Baby Girl would have her daddy's hair and he said they are hoping for a red head. I can say I am super curious to see what she is going to look like since G turned out so blonde.

I am at 32 weeks now and so have been working to get everything done and at the same time spend extra time with G. I can honestly say the thought of leaving him for 5 days is going to be pretty emotional for me. The longest he has been away is overnight and that isnt easy. My doctor said that he thinks I will go early at around 37 weeks. Which makes me a little nervous considering how close that it is.

My prayer is a happy, healthy baby and a smooth delivery.

Family Reunion - 2010

We just got home from the family reunion! and had a wonderful time. Here is my favorite picture. Started having some contractions the last night we where there, but luckily they stopped after an hour.

Wednesday, June 30, 2010


So the past two weeks it seems like I have had a lot on my mind, the day before Father's Day I learned that a friend of mine had committed suicide. He was 38 years old and had 3 adorable children. We had worked together for about 5 years at two different places, I hadn't really talked with him the past year or so, but at one time would of considered him a really close friend.

It has weighed on my mind lately. I have been blessed in life with tons of friends. Some have been/will be lifelong friends and others have only been for a season. Looking back if I would of told this person that in 5 years you are going to end your life, he would of laughed in my face and called me crazy. I wonder what changed that you would feel so hopeless and think this is the only way to solve "life's problems".

I feel extremely blessed in my life, I am married to a wonderful person, I have an adorable little boy, a little girl on the way, great family and my list goes on...but there have been times in my past that I struggled with life, but never was ending it an option. I believe in the "after life" and I also believe that the decisions we make here we will be accountable there.

I have struggled with this, I know I don't know the whole situation and I am sure I never will.

YouTube Choo Choos

YouTube on the TV has been an excellent tool for teaching G about various animals, music, muppets, construction vehicles, light sabers, swordfighting, and various other things, but one thing on there is his favorite thing to watch. Steam engine trains. Any time those are on, he will work his way up to sit on my lap and we can spend or thirty minutes just watching choo choos. Really he would watch more than that given the option. Anyway, it's one of those moments when your child is snuggled up against you and you think, "this is a moment I will think back on and smile about someday."

Room in progress!


So we have been working on the room and making great progress, here are the pictures so far. I can say that the best is yet to come. J has several projects in the works! Will post pictures when he is done.

Tuesday, June 22, 2010


So we moved G into his own bed when we got back from Cali. We thought it was perfect timing since he had slept in a big boy bed for 10 days. Today while working on Baby's room, some one had a relapse!! Thank goodness it was only for a short time.

My new toy!

Anyone that knows me knows when it comes to baby gear there are 2 things I am super picky about and that is baby shoes and my stroller.

While in California and after doing much research I fell in love with the Phil & Ted stroller,( ) it was the only one that I found that could be a single or double. The only problem with it was the price didn't match our budget even off Ebay. I started watching craigslist, and in 3 months only one was listed and sold an hour after it was listed. I finally decided to post a " wanted" ad, much to my suprise someone responded a month later!!! It is in brand new condition! And a price we could afford!! The couple we bought it from was great, we ended up hanging out at their house a while and teasingly I asked her if she was selling anything else like pedipeds and much to my suprise she was!! We bought baby ------ 2 adorable pairs!!

I call this a successful night!!

Go craigslist !

G loves his new ride!!

Biker boy

We've been working on bike riding since spring and now G has pretty much mastered it. We bought him this bike last summer because it had rocket ships on it, then it stayed in storage the whole time. It has seen some very heavy use this year though. Check out the video.

Here's a picture too:

FB Quotes worth mentioning...

So I have to admit I am somewhat of a FB junkie, I have an iphone so it give me constant access which is good and bad. I love it, our life is busy and this is one way that I can keep in touch with people takes less than 2 minutes to say "Hey I hope you are having a great day" or "Happy Birthday, friend". The thing I have noticed is that people tend to post quotes, I love quotes and every now and then certain ones stick out to me more than others. My favorite quote of all times is "The sturdy oak is nothing but an acorn that held its ground". This week there where two that stuck out to me...

"God always answers, just sometimes the answer is no" and "In the kingdom of God, attitudes matter just as much as actions".

Go Daddy!!

Daddy is finishing up Baby Girl's room tonight! And then we are going to start doing the decorating painting, we will post pictures soon. So excited to get this part started since he has come up with some really cute ideas!!
I am so glad I have a creative husband .

I think she is going to love her room.

28 weeks tomorrow...

So believe it or not time is flying with this pregnancy, the closer I get the more nervous I get. Yes, I am wishing my life away. I am not a good pregnant person, I worry over everything, some of this I think is due to going into preterm labor with G. I remember when I hit the 35 mark with G how relieved I was just knowing he would be ok outside of me...and of course being stubborn decided to wait and have to have a c-section.

This is our last pregnancy, so I do want to treasure every moment. Baby Girl is so active, I love feeling her move inside of me. She is a huge fan of big brother, it's super cute at night when I am putting him to sleep and he is talking to me that she goes crazy kicking and moving around. I think they will end up being the best of friends and the worst of enemies all in the same day.

This pregnancy is so different than it was with G. I don't know if it is because I am more aware of things or if it truly is different. We are going to start painting her room this week and happy to say that after ordering 3 different bedding sets, that one finally came in that was not on back order. My goal is to have her room done by the time we go to the reunion. We are pretty prepared for her, especially with clothes thanks to several friends!! and I have been stock piling diapers for a while. We still need to get some of the basics, but figure we have time for this.

So in less than 85 days we will be holding Baby ------ in our arms.

Nothing is sweeter than a little boy running into the room while you are working and when you ask him what he needs he says "Give my momma kisses."

Life is good.

Happy Birthday, my sweet little boy

Two years ago a little boy came into my life and melted my heart in ways I couldn't even imagine. I didn't know that you could love someone so much or so deeply. He really is the apple of my eye. Happy Birthday, my sweet little boy.


Sunday, May 30, 2010


I feel very honored to have had two great men in my life that fought for our freedom, you would call them soldiers, but I called them Grandpa!! I wish I could hug them and tell them "Thank You"

100 DAYS TO GO!!

Before our little girl arrives!!! Daddy is going on the way home to pick up the paint samples for her room and part of her bedding arrived today. Our goal is to have her room done by the end of June. Here is a picture of her bedding and the artwork we have ordered!! Can't wait to see it all put together. We are still trying to decide on a name.....

While Daddy is away...

J headed is off to New Orleans this weekend with the boys so G and I decided to take full advantage of not having any time constraints. Friday we headed to the mall and spent over an hour there riding the carousel and playing in the play area. Today we went to breakfast and then to the Fenton Firehouse Open House!! It was a winner, G played with tons of cool things and even got to practice putting out fires. Hopefully he won't try this at home!! They gave all the kids free bike helmets. G picked the Spiderman one, super cool!
