Okay, so a REALLY scary thing happened today with Jace. I was on the phone with Christina when I saw that Jace was choking on something. He was in the floor playing with Kylan's books so I didn't have a clue what it could have been since I didn't notice anything but the books there earlier. I basically threw the phone down, of course, and starting beating, okay not beating, but trying to figure out what Jace was choking on. He started throwing up, which was a good sign, but still nothing that I could see him choking on. I am then calling mom on speeddial with one hand while trying to help Jace with the other. I didn't know what else to do basically. He kept throwing up and finally after the third time I finally saw something in his mouth. Kylan the whole time is in the background crying I don't want Jace to die momma. I am of course panicking but trying to be brave for Kylan's sake. I grab the object out of Jace's mouth, and of course mom is running over from next door and gets here to help. He is no longer choking, just scared. I ask mom if I need to go to the ER just to have him checked over, she says no he is fine, just gave us all a good scare. Well, the object was a small piece of plastic off of Kylan's yogurt package which had been unnoticed when the books were placed in the floor by Kylan this afternoon. So anyway, the point of this blog, besides of course giving God the glory that he watches over my precious babies, is BABYPROOFING, BABYPROOFING, BABYPROOFING!!! I always make a point to look for small things and to vacumm as much as I can, but there is still room to miss. Also, after it is all said and done, I thank God that he protects my family and that my boys love each other. I am posting some pictures of pre-baby drama from this morning before school. One of them shows him chewing on the tag attached to a blanket, which just goes to show, everything goes straight to the mouth.

9 months

Little man turned 9 months old on Wed. It is so hard to believe that he has been here for as long as it took him to grow inside my belly. I can not believe that he will turn one in three short months. He is doing so well. He says mama, dada, and lots of other babbles. He also waves bye bye on occasion. He is still not full-fledged crawling yet, but instead "army crawls" like he is sneaking up on an attacker. Bless his heart, at least he is finally trying, lazy little thing, ha! He is also pulling up to things. He has 6 teeth, and they hurt very much when he bites. We went to the doc. today for a 9 month check-up, plus he has been tugging at his ear again. We waited there in the clinic for an hour and a half, for them to tell us what we already knew, that he has yet another ear infection. This only makes his third, which is still much better than Kylan did at this age. He had around 14 by his first birthday and had tubes in at 13 months. Jace checked in at 21 lbs. exactly. He is getting so chunky. He is already wearing 12-18 month clothes. I am looking forward to watching him learn to walk and talk. Kids are such incredible beings, and I can't wait to have one more. Speaking of babies, we went to visit Angela and baby Macie this week. She is adorable and doing really well. It was wierd seeing John holding a little girl. I told him that he could give me a little girl one day, but we all know about those Suttons, they only create little boys. That is okay too, though, I already have another boy name picked out for someday......

a busy day

Saturday turned out to be a very eventful day. One of my very best friends Angela, delivered her beautiful little girl Macie Grace. She was 7 lbs even and reminds me so much of big sis Maggie. I was amazed at how much they look alike. Angela was two weeks early, which didn 't bother her a bit. She was so ready to see that sweet little girl. John and I took the kids up to the hospital to see and hold her. Of course the kids had to stay in the waiting room, so John and I had to take turns seeing her. I'm hoping one day that Macie will be Jaces' little sweetheart. Kylan tells everyone that Maggie is his girlfriend, so we might as well set up the babies too, ha ha! It would be wonderful if they really did end up being together, how nice would it be to have your best friends as your in-laws?

After visiting with them we got ready to go out to eat with good friends Brian and Tracy. We went to newport and ate Chinese. It was nice to go out with friends and visit for awhile. The kids stayed at my moms for our "double date." Kylan called before 10:00 asking when we were coming home. I asked him if he was tired, he said no, he just wanted us to come home. I thought that was so sweet of him until he said, I'm just ready to play my new game, lol. Figures, huh?

valentine's day

Well Valentine's Day was great! I was so proud of John for not sending me flowers to school today. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE flowers, esp. yellow roses, but not for Valentine's Day. To me I would rather have flowers on some random day, a day where I know he was truly thinking of me, and not a day where it is shoved in his face around every store that he must get me something. And believe me, it's Valentine's Day, so yes I expect something, lol, but NOT flowers. He really suprised me this year, I have to give him that. I found a purse that I REALLY wanted but wasn't sure that he really knew how much I wanted it. Well, lo and behold he had it AND a new pair of tennis shoes. And believe me, I needed new shoes. I had not bought new tennis shoes since Kylan was a baby, yes Kylan, not Jace. Kylan is 5 so that tells you something. I don't wear them that much, but had mentioned awhile back that I could really use a new pair. I was super excited about his thoughtfulness. He had also left a card for me from him and one from the boys, which was super sweet. I have to say how blessed I am to have such a sweet husband and sweet boys, they really made me feel special today, and every other day!!!!

Oh, I also wanted to share a picture of an outfit I just had made for Jace. I have been OBSESSED with buying clothes for him and found this lady who makes adorable lounge sets. I pick out the fabric and she creates a one of a kind outfit. I love her work and she is wonderful to work with!!!

family get together

Well today the family gathered together for an afternoon of food and fun for the kids. All grandkids were present for the first time since the newest addition Cameron arrived. We weren't sure that he was going to be able to make it or not, so we took a group picture just in case he didn't get to come. By the time he did get there we were all heading out the door, but I did manage to get a picture of him and Jace. We all hung around to visit with him a little before we had to leave. It was a fun afternoon for the kids, they played hide and seek and enjoyed entertaining the adults with flips and silliness galore. We had a great time all catching up.

My mom and I have been making a couple of cakes here and there. I am posting two recent ones. I seem to get in a mode to where I have all of these plans to do all of these things and then stess about them when it comes time to do them. For example, I feel soooo guilty that I work so I go to very time consuming lengths to make sure that I do treats for my boys playschool classes for every holiday. They are a lot of fun to do, and Kylan loves to bring things to his friends, but it just tends to get a little crazy around any holdiay. For Valentines day I made shovels that say I Dig You with candy in them. I thought they turned out cute and wanted to share the idea just in case anyone else needs an idea!

A try at blogging

Okay, so I'm very new at this, but have been inspired by one of my very best friends Christina to try this whole blog thing out. I'm finally used to the myspace world and am now venturing out to try and see how hard this might be for me. Anyway, this blog spot is just a place to visit and check out my crazy life! I am outnumbered by boys at the moment, maybe one day we can have a little girl to be on my side, lol. For now though I am enjoying my beautiful boys and learn something new from them everyday. Hope that I can keep this updated often and will try my best to get the hang of this soon. Thanks for stopping by!!!!
