A Day At The Farm

So this is my family!! I loved every minute of the weekend that we spent together. Hannah and I had fun together just girl time. We went on a hay ride and she loved it. She was so excited about everything that we did from the animals,looking at pumpkins and drinking cider. Hannah is full of love and she shows it everyday.

This weekend my heart is overfilled and I am so grateful to God for my beautiful family.

Hope you all had a good one too.

My Little Pumpkin

Happy 10 months my sweet pumpkin. You and Hannah had so much fun at the farm today. You were so good watching your sister do all the activities.
I found out today that you really like apple cider donuts. You were all smiles when you were eating it.

So what can you do that is new this month. I ask you to give me a hug you put your head on my shoulder. You give the best open mouth kisses ever very slobbery. You get frustrated with Hannah and push her away.You still think she is the best no matter what. When I walk in the room you say "hi". You are getting better with people food. Your favorite book right now is "Good Night Moon". You can use your sippy cup really well. You love tang watered down!

Gracie, you get sweeter and sweeter by the day. You smile all the time and laugh more and more. I love you so much Thank You for giving me such happiness.

The Whole Group During Mass/ Godparents

Mary Grace After Her Baptism

It was such a fun day and very long. I had so much fun with my family. I just wanted you to see her in her dress. It's the same dress Hannah wore after her baptism.

P.S. I am teaching myself how to download pictures so bare with me.

Hey Erin are you proud?

Hannah and I are pooped after no nap

Please Tell Me Why......

Why did I leave work during my lunch because I was cold to get a coffee at Starbucks. When it is 59 degrees outside and raining; now my coffee is cold.

Here in Maryland tommorrow is supposed to be 75 degrees. This is a problem because people are getting sick from this weather. I am just sick of this weather.

Please tell me why I was so hungry at 12:00 and ate my lunch early.

File this under I'm just sayin!!

Let's Pray...I Mean Play!!!

Things that Hannah does that make me feel like a good mother:

Hannah playing with Fisher Price Mid-Evil Little People Castle starts reciting the "Lord's Prayer".

I think that was a proud mommy moment!

Thank You

Thank You to all my bloggy friends for such nice well wishes and thoughts.

Dean is doing much better. He still gets headaches and a little sore but not as bad as it was.

I am so grateful he is okay. I can't imagine my life without him. I have hugged and kissed him a lot more. I am actually planning a getaway weekend for just the two of us. We soooooooooooooo need it!!!!

Gracie had her 9 month well visit. Gracie is 21.5lbs she has 4 teeth coming in. The pediatrician said I am doing a great job with her. I told her that Gracie is waving,clapping and doing so big. Gracie is also doing the sign for more. Gracie did the sign for Debbie(pediatrician) she was very impressed. Debbie still advised that I keep giving her Zantac if she is in distress. I can tell a difference when she hasn't had it for a while. Mama don't sleep at all.

Gracie has a new boyfriend. Brandon the triage nurse. Well Brandon is just so awesome. Brandon held Gracie for a minute and she wouldn't come back to me. Brandon also is very informative about the girls . He know his stuff and knows when to say come in. I can call him about anything pertaining to the girls and he calls me back. I could have tons of questions on the phone and he will answer them all.

So Brandon if you are reading this we heart you here at Readheaded Mommy Land. You are truly a blessing in our lives. Thanks for taking good care of the girls and me too. Thanks also for the 3 cases of rock.

You Title The Post

I haven't posted anything lately because my life has been put on hold. That's the way that I feel really.

Thursday morning I was getting ready to walk out the door for a doctors appointment with the girls. My phone rang it was my mother in law. She told me I need to listen carefully. She proceeded to tell me that Dean couldn't get a hold of me. I find out that Dean was taken to the hostpital. He was at work and a 60lb dehumidifier hit him on his head and neck. According to my husband he saw stars and fell to his knees.

When I got to the hostpital(a.k.a. worst hostpital in the world) they didn't know where he was. I finally got to him he was on a board and had a neck brace on. His response was " this is no big deal you didn't have to come". So the usual protocols were done. Eight hours later I took him home. I went and got his meds filled and got him lunch.

Hannah went to my inlaws and Gracie stayed with me. I know Dean needed rest and he wasn't going to get it with Hannah around. I love my Hannah but she doesn't stop talking unless she is sleeping. I knew Gracie would be easy to handle.

So Dean is in a lot of pain. He has been out of commission since Thursday. I am playing the role of both parents. I took off Friday to make sure he didn't go unconscious on me. Saturday I got up early took the girls to my inlaws I went to work.

After work I treated myself and went to Target and got a white chocolate mocha at Starbucks. I needed to get a few things for the girls. I went all by myself and didn't feel guilty.

I am really tired and overwhelmed. My life flashed before me and I couldn't help but think the worst could have happened. My husband has a strong build to him. The doctor says he's lucky he could have broken his neck.

I went to my parents church yesterday. I just needed my mom and dad. The girls were happy to see them. Gracie just wanted my dad and Hannah wanted my mom. So I got to take in Mass. For some reason I just started crying during the communion song. Now that I think about it that was the first chance I got to really reflect on the last few days.

I finished teaching Sunday night. The 6 week course went well. I had to take the girls with me because I didn't have anybody to watch them. I will write more about the 9th graders later. I will say they were so awesome to work with. They really impressed me with the discussions we had. I am going to miss them. I will be back next semester and I am excited.

So I hope you all are well. Have a good week!!!
