I took Logan to the Doctor yesterday afternoon and he has an Upper Respiratory Infection, Viral Infection, Rhinitis and Pharyngitis. I have been giving him a lot of pedialyte because his urine outtake is not that good. The Doctor prescribed Zithromax. He has been getting up a lot during the night just crying and really congested. Poor little guy. We have just been staying in doors these past couple of weeks trying to keep him healthy.
Today the girls had a Church activity it was Hairstyling and when they were done they had there pictures taken. They had so much fun getting there hair done and it turned out so good, They look so beautiful.

We had a very busy weekend, Saturday we worked on the outside of the house adding more rock and also put in some solar lights up and down both sides of the driveway and walkway. It looks really nice.

Sunday we worked inside the house Richard added baseboards to our Master bath because when we moved in there were none there. The girls and I organized there bedrooms and moved furniture around adding a little more space.

Richard starts his Vacation July 3rd so we will be paint the garage one of those days. And plan on taking the kids out and do stuff with them.

We just found out today Richard's Beaver,UT run got cancelled so he will be on extra board which means he will go were ever there is work. So all this week he will be going to Wickenburg, AZ which is great that is awesome miles. I cannot wait for his Vacation to start we will have him for an entire week.

Logan is SICK AGAIN, he was better for an entire week and got sick again his cough is worse. I have no idea why he is getting sick all the time, I really don't take him anywhere. He has a Doctor's Appointment today at 3:30. I had to cancel his Therapy tomorrow and they told me he might loose his spot if he misses anymore which they tell me all the time. I was like OK I will bring him sick. They said well we don't want you to do that. Well then. So I have to get a Doctor's note saying he is to sick to go to therapy. I swear....

I have been remembering the past and all of the things Logan has over come, so I decided to look through some old photos and found these he was only one years old at the time these were taken. He has grown so much since then his personality has really blossomed. He understands everything you say to him. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I have.....

playing with Daddy

What a big Ham....

Logan loves his glow worm, he calls it his Baby

Logan had Therapy today, he did good in Speech. His Therapist uses the Kaufman Flash Cards and really tries hard at pronouncing the words he sees.

O.T. he cried so I had to go in and sit there while he did his therapy, He really needs to be seen twice a week but she is completely booked so Logan will be put on a waiting list when an extra day becomes available.

For some reason Logan has this fear of falling when he sits in a child's chair he freaks out, but if he is in a chair with a table in front of him he is fine. This just started up recently and I have no idea why. Also when I sit on the couch and I put him on my lap facing me he freaks out he is afraid he will fall down.

Another concern is when he chews food he does not chew very well he will take a bite chew once or twice and then swallow. Today she gave him a piece of Licorice to see if he would chew it and he just took a couple of licks and that was it. He will almost eat anything by mouth, but he does have texture problems if that makes any sense at all. So we will be concentrating on that also.

Almost forgot Logan ate 4oz of vanilla pudding in Therapy.... way to go Logan :)

Happy Father's Day

WOW what a day it was, the girls had so much fun and they really made out, Gift cards, Money, Jewelry, Jewelry Boxes. My mom made the girls jewelry boxes they turned out so cute, it is something truly to treasure for years to come. Richard and I got the girls Nintendo WII w/gaming accessories, case and sonic unleashed.
Everyone came and had tons of fun, after 2 1/2 hours of skating the girls were ready to go home bruises and all. We had some family come in from California and after the party we came back to our house and Richard Bar b qued. I was so tired by the end of the day.
Today the kids and I made it out to Church, Logan was in Nursery for 2 hours and he did pretty good, fussed on and off for a little bit but was fine. We came home and Richard just woke up and is getting ready to leave for work, unfortunately he has to work today. Before he left for work he was able to set up the WII for the girls so they are playing with that right now.
Logan is doing great back to his normal self throwing toys and tantrums and being a little cutie pie. His Nurse was able to come over yesterday and watch him so I could concentrate on the girls and there special day.
I also wanted to wish my Husband a Happy Fathers Day. When I look at you being a Dad to our Children my heart swells with gratitude and pride, I feel so blessed to have a Husband like you. I am so thankful that my children are blessed with a Father as caring, thoughtful, and supportive as you. I want to thank you for always putting our children's interest first. We love you from the bottom of our hearts.

This morning Logan had an appointment with Dr Stewart his Orthopedic, every time we go there he says the same thing it does not look like Logan will need surgery for his legs and he does not know if Logan will walk. While the Surgery part is great, I am a very optimistic Mother and I believe my son will walk some day. The Doctors have been wrong with Logan in the past. He gave us a Prescription to get him a walker/stroller chair for him to use while he is in School.
Since his AFO's (leg braces) were getting to small they fitted him for another pair, we should have those in about 4 weeks.

We then came home had lunch Logan got to take a little nap and out we go again I called the pediatrician and was able to get him in. Logan is still not feeling well and has been very cranky these past few days, He was up at 2am this morning just screaming and did not want to go back to sleep. After an hour of screaming I put him down he fussed for a little bit and then started talking to him self, then up again for good at 5am. The Doctor said he does not have an ear infection which totally shocked me. He has Pharyngitis and Stomatitis he gave me a script for it. So hopefully he will be feeling better real soon.

Alicia and I are doing so much better which is good because Logan keeps me up a lot at night.

Richard is doing good he has been out of town and hopes to be back by Saturday morning for the girls Birthday party.

Thanks for checking in on our family!

I took the girls to the park on Saturday came home and a couple of hours later started feel sick. I am feeling much better no fever just cough congestion a very runny nose I look like Rudolph, it is so sore. Alicia also got sick. So we have a house full of sick people. We are starting to feel a lot better. But Logan still has a runny nose and has been fussing all morning long. I had to cancel his Therapy today. The girls are having there ninth Birthday party at the skating rink Saturday so hopefully everyone will feel 100% by the end of the week. I have Logan sitting on my lap right now crying so I better get going...

at the end of the day it looks like a tornado hit my
family room, this is nothing.

Logan does have a cold, poor little guy. He was up a lot last night just crying. He finally fell asleep around 1am and was up at 6:30am. His Respite Nurse will be coming over in the morning to watch him while I take the girls out to the park and do a few errands. It was a really nice day today only 86 and tomorrow will be 78. I will be able to turn my air off and open up the windows. I am taking this opportunity to take them to the park before it reaches 102 in a few days :(
78 degrees is not heard of in Vegas in June.

So we bought our new House in October of last year we bought all new appliances except a dryer. A friend had one a did not need it anymore so we took it off her hands, well it stopped working so I had to buy a new one. I was looking at Home Depot and I found one I loved it's a Maytag Centennial 7.0 cu. ft. If you need a new dryer I highly recommend this one. The only down side is the Dryer door is a little low for me, but I am 6'3. Other than that I love it.

I finally got a chance to take some photos of Logan he is such a little stinker lately he has been throwing all of his toys, he thinks its really funny and he loves to hide the remote control under the couch or anywhere we cannot find it. I caught him hiding a toy under the couch and I had to snap a picture. I was just watching him and laughing.
Also he thinks it is funny to try and stand on his head and throw toys in between his legs.

My handsome Husband is working this weekend so it is just me and my wonderful kids :)

Thanks for checking in on our crazy family....

Tuesday Logan went to Child Find again to be evaluated by the School Physiologist, Nurse and then Speech. They asked a million questions and every single person asked the same thing which can be very irritating. Logan did really well but when it came to seeing the Speech Therapist toward the end he just started to cry he was hungry and tired, 3 hours of being there really took it's toll on him. As soon as I put him in the car and left he passed right out. We go back in July for the results.

Yesterday Logan had Therapy, after that we went over my Mom's house and spent the day over there and had Dinner, Richard was out of town so I thought why not.
Logan is feeling a little under the weather, I am not sure if he has a cold or it's allergy's. His nose is running, he is congested and he has been throwing up.

Elizabeth had her Doctors appointment today to see her Asthma/Allergist she is doing great. The last time she wheezed was in April so he is lowering her Advair dose from 115/21 to 45/21 and she does not have to take Nasonex for awhile he wants to see how she will do. In a few months he wants to take her off of Singular Chewable tab and put her on a Zyrtec Pill.

Today we got a New Car we traded in our 06 Izuzu Ascender and got a 2010 Chevy Traverse LT fully loaded we love it actually it is my car and I am in love with it :) It does so much.

Today Logan had his O.T. and P.T. Evaluation at Child Find, He will be starting Preschool August 30th, and this is part of the process to see where he is at.

I found out that I will have to go and see Logan's Cardiologist and Gastrologist to have them fill out forms. When he starts school, there are food limitations. Logan can only eat certain foods by mouth and unless I go to the Gastro Doctor and have them fill out this form that says Logan can eat by mouth and that he can have crackers or a sandwich. If not then he will not be able to eat anything by mouth. I think it is ridiculous that they can not go by my word that they have to have it written by a Doctor.

For the Evaluation they gave him toys to play with, blocks to stack and tried to get him to stand and fitted him for a Stroller Chair to use in School because he can not walk or sit in a chair by himself, and to use for the Bus (which I am not sure he will be taking any time soon). And ask hundreds of questions. He did really good no tantrums or meltdowns. We go back tomorrow morning to see the nurse and other people, and answer more questions which is a 3 hour process. After all this is done we go back sometime next month to get the results.

The girls are doing good, I do not have anything planned this summer for them. So far they have been playing with there toys, playing video games and driving me crazy. There best Friend from a couple of doors down is out of town and will be back on the 14th. So they have been bored and I have been dragging them with me to all of Logan's Appointments. My Mom will be watching them tomorrow so they won't be that bored :)

Well Memorial Day was the day the heat began. We have had such nice weather all Spring and now it is ALL OVER Saturday it will be 107. OK I will admit I am very spoiled when it comes to the A.C. I DO NOT GO OUTSIDE... I get up early and try my best to get everything done in the morning before 11am. I love the A.C. and it loves me.... Well Thursday it was only 98 so late in the afternoon under our big umbrella I took Logan outside and he went in his kiddie pool for about an hour, he loves the water and could stay in it all day if I let him. He did not have a nap this day and was up at 5:30am, so at the end of the day he was so tired (See photos above)

Every Friday our Church has Activity days with the toddlers and today it was at someones house and they have a nice big pool. We swam for 2 hours with lots of sun tan lotion on. The girls had a blast and Logan and I also had a great time. Nobody got burnt except right under Logan's eyes is a little red but he is just fine.

Saturday Logan's respite nurse is coming over and I will be doing lots of running around, It will be so easy. Let me tell you Logan is getting so big he now weighs 30 lbs 4oz. It is really becoming hard to carry him around everywhere, sure I use a stroller but at home I cannot. By the end of the day my right arm and back are just killing me. So when his nurse has a chance to come over and watch him I am so thankful. The girls also want to come with me. They have been saving up there allowance and want to buy some girly things.
