Busy, wonderful times!!!!


We only have ONE clinic visit… and ONE pt appointment. And the rest of the week is FREE for me to be at HOME and get things DONE.

I am beyond thrilled! I might actually try a *gasp* SCHEDULE!

Clinic visit was today. It went well, labs that I can see online look fabulous! Annabelle is still throwing up frequently though, so we are going to try and change her formula. We want to change to a “big girl” formula anyway, so we are going to have one that digests a little easier though. Will be a few days before we get the new formula though. PLEASE pray this works and offers Annabelle some relief! She is always super uncomfortable during feeds, and I can just see the misery on her poor baby face!

We also had Annabelle’s one-year pictures taken today (only a month late!) THANKS, Kelly (my cousin-in-law) for taking them! You rock!

I don’t have them all back yet, but she posted two on Facebook today, so thought I’d share them here! WIll share more of my favorites when I get them all back! Later this fall I hope to get family pictures taken… but this Momma has to shed a few pounds before a camera is allowed to aim at her! Slimfast, where for art thou?

Oh, and we are up to 70 votes on the parents.com nomination! Not that competitive me checks it or keeps track or ANYTHING like that… HA HA! THANK YOU all who voted, you rock:-) And if you didn’t vote, well, you rock too! I promise!!!!

I just realized this week, that next monday is Labor Day. It’s odd. Usually I would be ticking off the days. Not only because it is a “day off work” but because in my job, a day off meant big schedule changes so I was intimately aware of this well in advance.

So it was weird that a holiday snuck up on me! My in-laws are coming in this weekend, so we are all very excited to see them again!

Anyone else have fun labor day plans? We’ll probably grill out, one of my FAV to do. (and for those of you planning on reminding me of my weight loss goal… hush. Well, actually, thank you, but still. Hush! *grin*)

OH! Another plan for this week. Annabelle got a wagon for her birthday… and we’ve yet to try it out! It’s just been TOO hot. SO sometime this week, in the evening, we plan to get that thing out and take Annabelle on her FIRST WALK!

Pictures will obviously be proudly posted!



  1. Krista, she is adorable! 🙂 So happy to hear how things are going.
    Hugs and blessings,

  2. so Glad Annabelle is doing sooo well. LOVE the shoots you posted of her. She is beautiful.

  3. how about transitioning to a blenderized diet? (till she can eat more by mouth)

  4. Oh my goodness, That first picture makes my heart melt into goo and puddle down to my toes….Soooo precious! Hooray for schedules! 🙂

  5. What a little diva! Her pictures are gorgeous. Hope the new formula gives her some much deserved relief. Blessings to you all ~ We'll be moving this weekend and getting settled the next…so yeah that's our plans.

  6. I love those pics. Annabelle is adorable. Glad things are going well.

  10. love love the updates and the pics of such an adorable baby girl!

  11. Congrats on the 70 votes for Parents magazine. Also, I L-O-V-E the pictures of Annabelle!!! Your cousin(-in-law) does wonderful work! Thanks for sharing them with us. Kelly also had a wonderful model with which to work, too. 🙂 I'll pray that you find the right formula for Annabelle. I know that is difficult. If it brings any comfort, you can't tell by looking at her that she is having any problem with digestion. (Praise be to God for whoever discovered feeding tubes. Where would us CHD families be without them?!)

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend together with your family. We still pray for you and the whole family!
