Interesting Place To Nap

The other day I went upstairs to wake the boys up from their nap and found Leland sleeping in the closet. Apparently Caleb kicked him off the bed and decided the closet was a better place for Leland to sleep.



We have been getting our organic produce delivered to us for Natures Garden, it is some seriously yummy stuff!

Leland’s Birthday

We took the boys to the zoo for Leland’s Birthday and they had a blast!

What Am I?

Random stuff

Wow, I have been really bad lately about posting on here.  I guess I would have more to post today but my camera was having issues that we have fixed but I missed out on taking pictures of the boys getting their hair cut (Leland’s first one) and fourth of July pictures. I think I may have some though that I can post later from that day since Dave was taking pictures with his phone on the 4th. We had a looooong day that day. We drove up to the TN aquarium and spent about 4 or 5 hours there walking through the aquarium, letting the boys wade in the little man made steams outside of the aquarium, eating dinner, then waiting for my car to recharge because some how a light was left on in the car. From there we went into Atlanta and watched an amazing fireworks show… it was a fun day! Anyway, sorry I don’t have any pictures of that stuff yet but here are some others.


We Are Back Home!!!!!

On Tuesday Leland was discharged from the hospital at around 5-ish, we got home around 7:30 PM and started cleaning the house (well Dave did while I was cuddling Leland). We called our friend (Caryn) who was babysitting Caleb for us (Thank you Caryn and Christine who also had Caleb for a couple days!) and said she could bring him home. I think he got home sometime around 9:30, said hello to everyone then got ready for bed.

In the morning we tried to explain that Leland is going to need extra attention and talked to him about diabetes. Then I went to the pharmacy to get all of the things we need for Leland. While I was there Dave had to give Leland his insulin shot and Caleb was watching, he could see that Leland didn’t like it and pulled the needle out of Lelands arm saying “your hurting him” LOL. Dave explained that he needs the shots so he can feel better so when I gave him his next shot after lunch he didn’t seem bothered by it. He loves his little brother 🙂 .

A couple hours later Jen called and said she could take Caleb for a few hours and bring him home after dinner. It was a lot less stressful with only Leland to care for. Thank you Jen! So now everyone is in bed and we will see what happens tomorrow.

Update on Leland

For those of you who do not know we took Leland to the ER Saturday night thinking he had a bad stomach flu/virus and needed some IV fluids. Turns out he has type 1 (insulin dependent) diabetes. His body has stopped producing insulin. We are in the process of learning how to care for him at home, then hopefully tomorrow we will be out of the hospital. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers as we learn our new way of living!

Caleb Sleeping With…. Can You Guess Which Cat?

A couple days ago Leland was VERY tired so I put him in bed a bit early. I ended up having Caleb take his nap in our bed downstairs so he wouldn’t wake up his brother. I opened the door about thirty minutes after getting Caleb settled down for his nap to find this:
Caleb and Wookie

Caleb and Wookie

I wouldn’t have been surprised to see Moxie with him but Wookie? The cat who is always hiding? Hmmmm maybe she likes Caleb after all.

Last Post of The Year

Wishing you all a safe and blessed New Year!

New Blog

Those of you who are interested in midwifery, natural childbirth, homebirth, doulas, etc. I have created a new blog about my journey to being a doula and midwife you can follow this new blog here. Please know that subjects on this particular blog may express many different opinions and views, so don’t get offended when you see something you may not agree on. Lots of it will just be “food for thought” and might not even be my personal views. I want it to be a place for people to explore their birthing and mothering options.
