Bed Hog

Emmy sleeps in bed with me when Matt is out of town. She sure misses her daddy. Notice how she is sleeping with his picture and is wearing pjs that say "daddy loves me". So cute :) I love her to death but how can a person so small take up so much room on a California king bed?
On a side note I love my sweet kids :)

Riding her bike with NO TRAINING WHEELS!!! WAHOO!!!

How has my little girl gotten so big? She started preschool today, has learned how to ride her bike without training wheels, is a pro and driving her pink mustang and loves peeling out. Time flies!

Emmy loves barbies, playing house, friends, dance and jumping on the trampoline. She is such a wonderful big sister and is very patient and giving with Jackson. She loves coloring and drawing and is especially good at designing dresses in her drawings. Emmy is creative, loving smart and beautiful. She is a total girly girl! Her favorite colors are pink and purple. She loves her new fish and named her Peacock. Her favorite food is stroganoff. She is a great driver in her car and loves taking Jackson for rides. Emmy loves trying new hair styles and hopes to have hair as long as Rapunzel one day :) She truly amazes me everyday.

Emmy, I love you more then anything and am so proud of the girl you are! Keep up the good work!!!

We have had a stressful few weeks! Matt had his appendix out July 24th. It is always so scary when Matt gets sick because his diabetes complicates things and he never complains unless something is serious. Everything was going OK after recovery for a couple days. His sugar levels were a little high but that was to be expected. As the days went on Matt's stomach got more swollen, he was in more pain, his sugars kept rising, his fever came and went and he was feeling horrible. We called the Dr everyday for 5 days. She continuously told us everything was normal and he was fine. Finally after begging Matt we decided to take him into urgent care. When we got there he was so sick I thought he was going to pass out. To make a long story short they found that Matt has multiple abscesses throughout his stomach. We were at the hospital for 4 days. Matt had to have the abscesses drained and was put on antibiotics. We decided to switch Dr's and I am so happy we did. I felt like things were taken care of and Matt was actually listened to.
My reason for this post is to express my gratitude. I am so grateful for my family. I am grateful that we are an eternal family and no matter what happens we will be together forever. I am grateful for my children. They are a constant joy in my life. Their sweet spirits have changed me so much over the years.
I am grateful for modern medicine. Without it I would not have a husband now. I am grateful that Matt has medicine to control his diabetes. I am grateful for Dr. Murdock. I am so grateful he took Matt as his patient, listened to us, communicated with us and visited us numerous times throughout the day to tell us what was happening.
I am grateful for my extended family and all the help and support they gave us while Matt was in the hospital.
I am grateful for my Heavenly Father. I was so upset and felt like he was the only one I could turn to. I am grateful that he listens and helps me daily.
Last and most important right now is my husband. Matt, I love you more then anything. You are my constant rock. You make me a better person. Your love for our kids brings me to tears. I love the passion and outlook you have in life. I love the way you deal with my grumpy ways and help me no matter what. I love they way you still cuddle me every night after 6 years. I love the person you are and how much you care for others. I love that you have a never ending work ethic. But most of all I love that you are here. I love that you can experience everything and watch our kids grow. I love you so much!
Things have really been put into prospective for me lately. Nothing matters more then my family. Thank you everyone for your support, prayers, help and love!
