Yes. Life gets in the way of blogging sometimes. We are all still here just living life every day.
The guys are still providing for their families and get to come home occasionally. Dakota gets to more than Poppie. Poppie got to come home a few days and he has really missed his Princess.
He only got to stay for three days but hey, we’ll take what we can get.
When Dakota goes back out after a few days of being home, Jossie comes back and stays with us. We are holding down the fort here with Dallas on security detail. Lol. She is doing good on school. She has passed all her tests but not with all A’s like she strives so hard for. It seems like all she does is study.
One weekend when Dakota was home he helped her study for one of her tests.
Dallas is still rocking on on karate and school.
Atleigh still loves to watch him, til she gets tired lol.
She said since Uncle Dallas was barefoot, she wanted to be too.
Dallas is growing up on me way too fast. This is his freshmen pic this year at school
He is getting buff too
He’s been complaining since back in the spring about his eyes. So we set up an eye appointment and yep, he’s very bad near sighted. And he has dry eyes really bad. Even a sniper has to have eye gear sometimes.
He still takes his Uncle job seriously.
Can’t take him anywhere.
Dallas was feeling bad for a few days with what we thought might be the starting of a kidney infection. He got to where he was refusing to drink anything, not even with his meals cause he didn’t want to pee. When I explained what an IV was and the possibility of having a catheter, he started drinking. What do you do when you don’t feel good? You hang out together.
Atleigh has had a stuffy, runny nose and cough for a few weeks now. But thank the Lord, no fever. I think it is also allergies. Bless her.
Even Princesses have bad days. Bless it. She was so tired but still hungry.
She is getting so long and she has learned how to push off with her feet and try to get out of something. So now it’s time for buckles.
My momma got to come and visit one day and got to spend some time with her.
She didn’t know what to think with two crazy grandma’s in the house at the same time lol.
I have been seeing her some outfits. Here she is modeling a few:
Her other Grandma who is called Lolly, dressed her up for a photo shoot one day.
Me and Atleigh have so much fun every day. One day when it wasn’t too hot and she was fussy cause she didn’t feel good, I grabbed the stroller and we headed outside. She learned about cats and flowers. Lol
She loves to be a part of everything I’m doing. From cooking supper, making rolls and even dying her some onesies
She loves to watch cartoons and cooking shows. Believe it or not cooking shows are her favorite. She likes to look at recipe books too.
I think she’s loved just a little bit……
Since she loves to kick her legs so much, Poppie found her the perfect thing and she loves it. Oh my, she just bounces up a storm. Mommy put it together.
She has still got a stuffy nose and was coughing so much mommy took her back to the Dr and she has croop. They gave her a shot and hopefully it will clear up. Thank goodness she never ran fever. She is now 4 mths old and sleeping in her bassinet. Since the day she was brought home from the hospital, she has slept on her mother’s chest every night all night. This was an emotional transition for Mommy but they both did fine.
There are days where even a Princess has had enough.
They finally figured out what was wrong with my mommas back. She had spinal stenosis and spinal fluid blockage along with a herniated disc. They set her up to have surgery and they did it Thursday. She was supposed to get to go home the next day but they can’t seem to get her blood pressure regulated. She is in pain and doesn’t like to take pain medicine. Not to mention, being confined to a bed is driving her nuts. She doesn’t have an appetite and you can barely get her to drink. She did however, walk down the hall and around the nurses station with all of us behind her cheering her on. She could sit in a chair for a few minutes. We went to visit yesterday and I had to force her to drink and she was proud when she could pee on her own because she will not get to go home until she does that more too. This morning when I checked she had a rough night and had ran a low grade fever all night. This has been hard on her due to age too. Hopefully all goes well tonight and she may get released tomorrow.
