smiley guy

He really smiles now!
Two peas!


I have to defrag my disk so that my photo editing software will work, so I'll post pictures of the kids later. In the meantime, I am on new diabetes medicine which should help me lose weight and hopefully help my fatty liver problem!

The latest

Our little miss kept her MomMom and PopPop up all night! She must be cutting a molar since she starts crying for no reason when she's awake.
Sawyer is such a little man!

movie night

Wow, I found Big Bird movie, I haven't watched that in forever!
Let's see, who can I get to watch with me?
Unkie Shaunie will watch with me!
Shaun: "At least it's not Barney again"

At least I can hold Sawyer

It was so hard to be without my grandkids while I was recooperating. Tegan had to lift up my shirt to see my boo boos everyday but I missed spending time with her. It looks like her hair grew 2 inches. Sawyer is so strong now...he likes to stand up. I just want life to be back to normal....

I was just thinking to myself the other day that it will be a matter of time before Tegan gets into Shannon's makeup, but by the looks of it, she got into mine!!!

Stick it to me!

I found a sheet of stickers last night, and gave them to Tegan, along with a piece of paper to put them on. She had other ideas, however, after patiently taking the stickers off, she decorated herself!

Sitting on the porch

Rainy Evening

Sitting on the porch
on a hot and rainy night,
Earth swallows the downpour
as thunder booms
and cracks the sky with light
The warm breeze carries the
loamy scent of earth
across the field and to my yard
where I sit, rocking, quietly
in respite

Willy Wonka

PopPop, can I have some chocolate?
Look, they're over there!
A girl needs her sweets, you know!
Willy Wonka is the man!
Nom, Nom, nom..
That's what I like about PopPop---He does everything I want!
What do you mean, don't stuff three in my mouth?
I'll give you a bite, if I can just have one more!
Ah, come on PopPop, just one more...they're right over there!
I hate when they cut me off!

Day at the beach

Before she gets in the water, she clips her stroller straps. She likes to clip!
Ahh, another hot day in the water!
She holds onto PopPop to get her sea legs!
There she sits, alone and unhappy...
But wait, she found a couple of playmates! Not bad, two boys and a toy!

Tegan's condition

The Pediatrician called and told us that Tegan has a bladder reflux condition that she should outgrow. However, to avoid further infections which could ultimately damage her kidneys, she will be on a low dose of antibiotic for one year. That seems easy, but Tegan hates that antibiotic and spits it out, so we will have to find a creative way to incorporate that into her day. Any ideas?


A member of the family

Hmmm, I overheard MomMom saying that I am more alert so I'm like a 'real' member of the family
I guess that's cool, these people are ok...
Except there are a few things to worry about....
like what about those dogs? They come sniffing around me like I'm some kind of steak, licking the formula off my chin!

But there are alot of perks...I hear granny can cook pretty good!
And then there's the holidays...
Yes, being a member of the family might not be a bad deal...is there anything I'm forgetting?
