Has it really...

Been that long since I was supposed to finish up vacation pictures! Yikes! I have a lot of catching up to do. We've had LOTS going on around here. A wedding, a slab leak (Which meant me and the girls were gone for a couple days at a time here and there). Then after that was finally done I figured things had calmed down so I took Jade in for her 9 month check up and besides being tall and developmentally past where she needs to be she wasn't gaining weight. Like at all! So I am done nursing and she takes formula, which I am not complaining about. And the doctor hear a murmur in her heart and referred us to a cardiologist. So we went to see him and she had an EKG and we talked to the doctor about it all, but because of the murmur that they never heard before plus other symptoms...including weight we have to take her to do a heart ultrasound to be sure it's nothing else. Not really something I was ready to deal with, but we are. She goes in a few weeks for that so we just are praying that it really is nothing serious for our little girl. On the plus side in the 5 days between her two appointment she had gained like 8 oz. which is a good sign. The nurse probably thought I was crazy when we saw her weight! I was a little excited about it!
And we've just had so many other little things going on that I can't believe we're already this far into August. What is happening to the time?? Plus, I have a 3 year old who has turned into a nightmare lately! And I mean NIGHTMARE! She is mean to Jade ALL day long, won't go to bed at night, and thinks it's funny when she gets in trouble. I have tried it all...okay not tabasco (Cortney...I don't know if I can!) but seriously anyone have any advice for an on the edge momma! Phew...okay sorry for the rant. I just had a lot that I needed to get out there. Soon, and I mean within the next 30 days :) I will post pictures. Lots and lots of pictures! But for now I better be off or I'll start getting into something else that is really bothering me. Anyone else HATE $$. There I couldn't even type it out :)

I am so sorry about sweet little Jade Car! Please keep us posted...as for Makenna she and my twins would get along great:) What I have tried and saw the best result with i think I told you about but don't know if you've tried it, I do a tiny bit of apple cider vinager and we call it sassy sauce. They know I mean business when I bring that out.Try it and see how it goes. she won't like the taste but she will figure out you are serious. Hang in there:)
