surgeries oh my

As most of you may know, I just had my gallbladder taken out and I am SORE!!!!! It isn't a kind of pain where I am constantly on pain medicine it is more of a discomfort. It feels as if I was kicked in the ribs, I hope it goes away soon!!!

As for everyone else in the family, Regan is officially a 2nd grader now!! Where did the time go? Am I old enough to be a mom to a 2nd grader?? Bridgette will be in pre school in september and it will be harrison and I for a half-day 2 days a week.

So far this summer we haven't done anything to fun, we had to cancel a camping trip due to my surgery but am hoping to make it up somewhere. Both regan and bridgette are playing soccer starting in august and they can't wait. They want to play now. Ha ha

Well we have a few weeks before harrison has his surgery for his ears. We cant wait we are doing a countdown and doing everything in our power to prevent him from getting another ear infection. Poor little guy! His recovery is going to be much quicker than mine fortunatly. He will be back to normal within 12 hrs.

I guess that about covers it for now. Hope everyone is having a great summer so far!!!

Bridgette Jean!!!

Bridgette just turned 3 yesterday. Where does the time go???? Took her to the doctors today and she is 34 lbs and 37 inches tall. She is going to be tall!! The dr is concerned about her belly pain that she seems to have. I need to change her diet a little and then if that doesnt work then she will be tested to see what is going on and to rule out celiac disease. I am praying that the diet change will work, I do not want her to have to go through all of the testing that is involved with celiac disease.

Harrison is growing like a weed!!! He is climbing into everything!! Regan also is doing well, still loves school and hates when he has to miss it!

Sleep is....

OVERRATED!!!!! Boy do my kids know how to test me!! For about 2 weeks now, 1 or all 3 have been getting up numerous times!!! Last night was the WORST!!! Both boys were up at 3:30 a.m. wide awake and wanting to play! I finally caved and put them both in the living room and I fell asleep on the couch. Harrison crashed again around 5 but then was up again at 6. Regan never fell back to sleep and I am thinking that he was pretty miserable for his teachers today. It is an early bedtime night, especially since Bridgette only had a 10 min nap and was up late last night.

On another note, I cannot believe that Harrison will be 9 mos on the 24th and that Bridgette will be 3 in March!! My little ones are growing up so quick!!!

If you have any suggestions on the sleep thing, please let me know!! I am DESPERATE to try anything!!!

Wow time has really flown by!!! As you all may know, we have a new addition to our family. Harrison Joseph was born on May 24th. Regan and Bridgette just adore him! He loves Regan and tolerates Bridgette. He is 8 mos old already!! I can't believe it!!

Bridgette is almost 3 and boy does she know how to test our patience! I am hoping to put her in nursery school this fall. Sean doesn't want to but I think she is ready and very willing to go! It would only be 2 days a week for 2 hrs I believe. Other than that she is growing like crazy!!!

Regan is doing GREAT in school!!! He LOVES going everyday. We just got his report card and he has 90's or 100's in mostly everything! I hope he continues to enjoy school. He is also in boyscouts now and is enjoying that also. He is hoping to go to boy scout camp this summer.

Sean and I are doing well also. We are still house hunting and am not finding anything that we can either agree on or in the area that we want. It is very frustrating because right now all 3 kids are in 1 tiny room. I hope we have some luck soon!

Big Girl!!!

Where do I start? I will start with Bridgette. She has grown up so much in the last few months. She is very very stubborn! Here is a list of things she is doing now by herself without help:
Get dressed
put shoes on
carrying on a conversation with you

Don't worry I fixed the carseat issue, she isn't very happy with me now, but oh well safety first! She had a great birthday. I was babysitting 2 of her buddies that day so she played all day long! Last weekend my mom and I took the kids to go see Sesame Street Live for Bridgette's birthday. They really enjoyed it except Bridgette got mad every time Big Bird or Cookie Monster left the stage. Other than that she is keeping us really busy!
Regan is doing pretty good. He was having issues with his reflux but that is now under control.
He is sick now with a sinus infection that is messing with his ashtma. He is having a hard time breathing at times, and last night he couldn't stop coughing. Poor kid, I hate when he gets like this, because there isn't anything I can do about it. Other than that he is doing well. Still loves school and can't wait to go. He is getting excited about the baby coming, he says that he can't wait til his "brother" gets here. ( we still don't know what we are having)
Sean and I are doing well. I am getting really uncomfortable and anxious. Sean is working crazy hours. The kids haven't seen him very much in the last 2 wks, but it will be worth it in the end. I will try and get some pictures up soon!

Regan and his library card!
Bridgette in the dentist chair

The kids went to the dentist yesterday. Regan had been there before and knew what to expect, but it was Bridgette's first time. When it was her turn, she hopped into the chair like she had been there before. She was hilarious!!! Sean said to me "Why did u need me again?" Regan was a little uneasy about everything but then again he had surgery on Thursday so he was a little scared I believe.

His surgery went really really well!! He ended up having an infection in his left ear when he was in there. As soon as he woke up from the surgery he was talking up a storm like he never fell asleep. As we were being discharged, the nurse who took care of him told him that for being a very nice patient that he could have a prize and brought back a new puzzle for him. He was so excited to bring it home so that he and daddy could put it together.

Regan is also becoming a very BIG boy. We went to the library yesterday and he filled out the paper and got his very OWN library card. He was so happy that he made me bring it to his class today( I worked in his class) so he could show his teacher and all of his friends. Other than that not to much is going on!
