good look'n jeremy

So I can't remember if I posted that Jeremy had Lasik surgery on his eyes. It's so amazing. He has like 20/20 vision now. I'm very excited and happy for him. I think it's really nice for him not to worry about taking care of his contacts and dealing with that anymore.

fried motherboard again

Our computer fried again. We have the worst luck with computers. Our kids haven't even been on it very much lately. I'm on Jeremy's laptop. His computer doesn't have new pictures on it.

We're all doing great. Jackson has two more doses of medicine today and then he's done. I can't tell if he's getting bigger or not.

Makayla is loving her new school and primary. I love that she loves to be there and has adjusted so well. She's getting really good at her lower cases letters and at sounding out words.

Isaac still is having a hard time at church. He doesn't want to stay in singing time and sharing time, but he enjoys class. We've been going to playgroups and he's meeting new friends and does pretty good playing with other kids. I thought having friends from his sunbeam class would help him at church, but now he wants to play and wrestle with them during singing time. He is definitely my hard child to figure out.

Jeremy is getting closer and closer to having salesmen here. I think he has 1 1/2 weeks til they get here (all 13 or 14 of them) I think he's going to be busier than he thinks. As long as he can keep enough techs trained and ready to go, it will be better than his first summer in Houston.

Our kitchen is still riped apart. We may have found someone to fix it. We're just waiting for him to give us a quote. I can't wait to have a pretty kitchen.

bye bye diarrhea

I'm so excited. The baby has been taking some new meds for the last two days and his diarrhea is gone. I'm so excited for him to start gaining weight. They think he'll be fine after taking this medicine for 10 days his diarrhea should stay gone and he should start gaining weight. I went to the specialist on Wednesday and he kind of gave me the business about why he was so small and why I hadn't seen him sooner and didn't I know that Jackson was grossly underweight for his age and then he showed me where on the charts he was and where he should be. I felt so stupid and like the worse mom ever. Than I realized that he had read jackson background (surgery, and 5 rounds of antibiotics in two months) When I explained everything to him, he told me to finish the meds and give him pediasure and that he should be fine.

Our kitchen is still in pieces and we've fired our man so now we need to find someone else to finish I think we a little afraid of what it will cost to fix all the mistakes.

love ya all

doctors doctors doctors jackson is so sick of doctors

So we went to our new pediatric doctor. Jackson had his one year shots and I was concerned about his weight and having constant diarhea. JACKSON WEIGHTS 16POUNDS 2OUNCES! He hasn't gain any weight in the last like 4 months. I knew he wasn't gaining much but it really stuck me when I got back form Mexico, just how fragile he looked. He's had really bad diarhea since November. Which the doctors' thought was just from all the antibiotics he's been on since November, but now they're not so sure . He's having tests done (we had to give blood, urine and like 8 poo poo samples.) I don't know exactly what they're looking for. Something to do with his body not absorbing vitamins, allergies, or maybe he caught something by taking so many antibiotic that is messing up his digestive system. I also have to go see a G.I. which I think stand for Gastric Intestinal specialist.

These pictures were taken about a month ago. There's been a few changes but not many and there will be more changes soon. I'll keep trying to post more pictures.

I may have to post each picture of the house separately. Our kitchen is still not close to finished and we haven't seen the guy in over two weeks. We've talked to him. We need to find someone else to finish it for us. Half our back splash will have to be redone and maybe one of our counter tops. We keep learning the lesson "you get what you pay for" and a lot of time you end up spending more on the cheaper guy because of mistakes. (which is the case with us and our kitchen)

Dallas Temple Trip

Here are some pictures we took while at the Temple last month. We had never been to see the Dallas Temple, so it was fun for us and the kids to see it. It was also very cold, so our trip was pretty short. One trip around it, a few pictures, then on to our friends house, the Bells, for dinner.
You can see in one of the pictures evidence of Isaac's fall at Target. Chauntel was with the kids while I was at home working and he hit his head on the cart. They sent for an ambulance, friendly shoppers were helping watch Jackson and Kayla, and we ended up taking him to an urgent care place to glue him back together.
