First Day of School!


I have been so excited to start school! I could hardly wait for the big day! Today was that day! I will be riding the bus soon, but for the first few days my mom insisted on taking me herself.  When we got to school I grabbed my teacher's hand and waltz off with her, ready for my newest adventure (didn't even look back!). I think that my mama was going to be okay, although she needed a tissue for some reason.  I am only going for 3 hours each day, but it will be so great to be able to play with other kiddos!! I'll tell you more when I get home!

I hear ya!


I did really well today! We were at Santa Rosa Children's Hospital in San Antonio, where they had lots of toys/activities for kids in the waiting room. I did enjoy playing for a while before I was called back.

When they called us to a room, the fun began. I completely refused to have my blood pressure taken (as usual). I did let the doctors listen to my heart and with lots of assistance and I even let them take my oxygen saturation (sorta!). The worst part of the whole day was when the nurse attempted to get my blood pressure. I'm not fond of being held down at all, and I'm not shy about expressing that!

The anesthesiologist was very nice, as were all of the nurses and the audiologist.  My papa stayed with me until I was masked and passed out. Mama hates seeing me go under anesthesia, so I was thankful that my papa hung out with me! (I did get an IV, but not until I was completely out! (Score!))

By the time my mama got back to the recovery room I had stuffed my mouth full of animal crackers and was pretty happy, but groggy. I polished off that bag of animal crackers, had a cup of juice and then moved on to a bag of gold fish. I was starving people!

Half an hour later and we were out of there!

My little brother Kylar was a trooper all day too. (He's learning from the best!)

Great news is that my hearing is perfect.  And my speech is getting better every day.

Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers!

Please think of me...


Tomorrow I am going to be having a hearing test. It shouldn't be a big deal, but I have to be put under general anesthesia. I am not fond of hospitals, but I'll be fine. Mommy, Kylar and my Papa are going with me. I can't have food or drink after midnight tonight, and my check in time is 12 p.m. So I guess you better wish my mama good luck too.

If you've got time, please say a little prayer for me!

Thanks guys, you're the best.

PS: Doesn't my eye look fabulous!? I've come a long way baby!!

CSN Review - Hana Lotion Pump

I originally had these poor broken dispensers. They were cute, but they BOTH broke! The top part that screwed into the pump just fell off.  Ugghh. (These were NOT purchased from CSN!)

They definitely needed replacing, so I got these gorgeous new ones from CSN. I placed the order and two days later they were at my front door!


I use them at my kitchen sink. One for hand soap and one for dish soap! So much prettier than a bottle of Dawn, right?!

Great product!
This collection will add an elegant took that will bring a unique beauty to your bathroom (or kitchen!). All pieces are hand weaved. I would absolutely recommend  this product! Nice, durable and pretty all at the same time! (The most difficult part about placing an order with CSN was trying to narrow down my purchase. They have over 200 stores and SOOOO many products.)

*I was given a $40 gift certificate for CSN Stores, but this in no way influenced my opinion of the product reviewed here.

Our last hoorah of the summer!

We decided to go to the New Braunfels Children's Museum last week. We needed to do something fun before my big Bubba started up the 4th grade. I had a blast and I think my brothers did too! I even got to paint a masterpiece all by myself!  Sorry about all the photos, my mama is a mamarazzi!

Kylar climbs...



My little brother is going to be a climber, just like I am! I can scale the kitchen table like no body's business. Mama and dada are in for it! {evil laugh}

Brotherly love, part two!


I am so thankful that I have such a cool big brother. He's got cool things and he's got lots of patience. He is pretty much the greatest big brother than anyone could ever ask for. I am blessed beyond measure! (My little brother ain't too shabby either!)

Chompers!

Kylar has 3 teeth now! One on top and two on the bottom. He is gonna catch up with me before too long!

Mama and dada wanted me to tell you that I'm doing a great job in my toddler bed!  Naps are a little more difficult for me because it's light outside and I wanna play, but I'm learning!

I am just loving that Kylar gets to sleep in my room with me! Sometimes we play a little, but I don't get away with it for too long because Mama and dada have a video monitor hooked up so they know exactly what we're up to!  Not cool.

Now I just gotta see if Kayson can share with us too and we'd all be together. Too bad his bedtime is later than ours!  Man I bet he'd figure out how to turn that camera off! I'll have to work on getting him in here too!  Oh the fun we'd have!

All in...

I surprised my mom today during nap time. Yep, I escaped from my crib and completely surprised her. I just walked right up to her, like it was no big deal!  

So mom and dad decided it was time for the toddler bed. We dusted it off and daddy took down my crib. They decided that now was as good a time as ever to put Kylar in my room as well.   

It's 10:30 p.m. ... so far so good! Wish us luck!

Broken leg, not all bad!



































Bubba is totally not using this wheelchair any more, but we had fun while it lasted. He is still in his cast, but he's gotten much better at using crutches.

We're at Vacation Bible School this week, having a blast! Hope you guys are off to a good week!

Thank you TARGET!


I had an appointment today in San Antonio with the wonderful Mr. Wenske. He enlarged and polished my prosthetic eye. Because my eye is so special and so is Mr. Wenske (my ocularist), he takes a long time to get it just right. So... we had some time to kill! We were hungry and mom needed a few things so we went to Super Target (mom's favorite).

First we ate lunch in the snack bar, it was delish! I got mac and cheese with apples. Mom says she owes Target a big thank you for having healthy food options, on the cheap! Before today I wouldn't eat apples so she is sooo excited! We were so impressed with all the choices they had in their snack bar!

The grocery side of their store is impressive too... put's our little HEB to shame. Oh how mommy wishes we would get a Super Target ... or a Central Market... or Whole Foods... but for now I'll just make her happy by eating my apples!

(Mr. Wenske, mamma and dadda were all so proud of me for being such a big boy when he took out my eye and put it back!)

Independence Day!


We had a great day today! We watched the parade in all of its glory. It was HOT and super humid, but fun. We hung out with our friends the Dunns for hot dogs and lots of other goodies and then headed home for nap time. We're looking forward to watching the city fireworks tonight and then popping some of our own tomorrow night! Hope you all are enjoying your families this weekend.
