There is something going on around here....

And I can't quite put my finger on it yet. Yep, you guessed it, I'm hijacking mommy's blog again. She's been so remiss in her blogging responsibilities lately. I've been giving her heck for it too! I'm glad she's home from her scrap time, but daddy and I had tons of fun while she was gone! I got to watch lots of football and lots of Elmo! What a perfect weekend! Daddy did take me to the store, when we ran out of milk...good thing he went, or I would have had to throw a fit or two! The only bad thing about the trip to the store, is that I really love to ride around in the shopping cart and check everything out, but he just carried me in and grabbed the milk and tried to leave. I put a slight kink in his plan and decided to play a spontaneous game of fetch my binkie with him!

I'm still up to many adventures and keeping mommy busy. I'm still playing my early morning version of fetch the binkie too. I think mommy and daddy are getting tired of it, but it's such fun, and I'm not quite ready to retire it yet.

When i figure out what's going on around here, I promise, I will fill you all in, so stay tuned!

Oh! I almost forgot, I gotta send a shout out to my friend Maggie! Her baby sister finally arrived! I tell you, I've learned a lot of tricks from this girl, and I know her sister will pick up on those tricks quick too!

Okay, just one more thing to clarify, I am not taking over mommy's blog, I promise she will be back to fulfill her blogging duties. I just saw that my grandma left a comment, and I knew she'd come back and wanted to share my adorable photo!

Still Recovering...

Just got back on Sunday evening from our fun scrapbook girls getaway weekend. It was so much fun! I'll have to share m0re about that later!

I've missed you all, and I have lots to share, but right now, I am tired and cranky, so I'm going to go to bed!

Mommy has too much to do!

So, I get to invade her blog one more time!! It's been a busy week around here! First, I wasn't feeling well on Monday and Tuesday, so mommy said we could just hang around the house. I was so glad, even though I know mommy had lots of stuff to do. I was feeling better on Wednesday and my friend came over to help me with my speech. Another friend was supposed to come over, but she ended up not being able to make it, which I was happy about because I was super tired from my earlier play time and waking up through the night with this cough. Today, my friend Jessica came over to help me out with some cruising techniques and some stretching and climbing skills. We had a blast! She always brings this huge exercise ball, that is lots of fun to bounce on! I was worn out today too, so I took a super long nap. This was good for mommy, because she got lots of house cleaning done. I'm not sure she really liked doing it though...I'm pretty sure she would rather be playing with me.

I'm gonna tell you a secret have to promise not to tell mommy or daddy though. I'm really taking these long naps, so that I can play this really cool game with them at night before I fall asleep. It's called fetch my binkie! Here's what I do...first, I pull myself up to stand in my crib, then I start whining a little. When the whining doesn't work, then I toss my binkie out of the crib and start whining louder. This one always gets them. They really come running! I've got those two trained!

Mommy has so much to do to get ready for her trip this weekend. Daddy and I are making her go away, so we can sit in front of the big screen and watch some football! We really got her fooled though. She thinks that it's us doing her a favor by letting her go off with her friends to this scrapbook thing, when really we just want a guy weekend! She always lets me watch my main man Elmo on tv, but then she watches that soap opera of hers. I'm so glad I won't have to watch it tomorrow. Hopefully dad has a full day of Elmo programming ready for me!

Oh well, I know she's gonna have fun too. Peace out ya'll! Mommy will be back on Sunday!

So Happy!!!

I just found out today, that there is a wonderful family working on the process of adopting beautiful Mekayla!!! Sweet! That just made my day!

Just found out tonight, that another little girl who has been up for adoption in Texas for quite awhile has also found a home! I'm so glad these little girls have found families and that these families found them to be their missing pieces!

It makes my heart happy to know that these little ones have found loving homes and that their special needs will be met!

Just getting the word out....

There is a beautiful little girl in Las Vegas, that is in need of a loving family to adopt her. Her name is Mekayla and she is 5 years old. It is my understanding that she was abandoned by her parents and due to her special needs has been unable to find a family to adopt her. Please read her story and if you or anyone you know might be the family for her then please contact them! Ever since I heard about her and saw her photograph she's been on my mind. While I wish that we could adopt her, I don't think we would be able to with learning the ropes and getting used to Little J's needs. I'm just hoping that someone might read this and feel it in their heart that Mekayla is the missing piece of their family and give her the home and the love that she needs.

**For information on Mekayla, just click on her name to be re-directed to her page.**

Also, Mekayla's 6th birthday is coming up in the month of August. If you would like to send her a birthday card, I will have the address to send it to in the next couple of days. I think it would be amazing for this little girl to receive so much attention on her birthday! Just post in the comments if you would like to send a card and as soon as I get the address, I will share it with you.

I know, I'm a slacker!

I haven't posted in awhile, but things have been so busy around here lately. We're starting to really get into the swing of things with little J's therapies. He's been working so hard during his sessions and afterwards as well. This kid just doesn't stop! We've added one more therapy session starting this week and I know we have one other to get started. This kid's got a calender a mile long! It's been really hard trying to find a balance between what little J needs, letting little J just be a kid, having family time, having us time, and getting the things of daily life done.

While I know, that there are many things that little J needs, I don't want our lives to revolve around his diagnosis. I want him to have time to just be a kid and I don't want him to get burned out on all the therapies. I think we're doing a good job with the balance so far, but to be honest, just looking at his calender sometimes tires me out.

Well, also as you know, little J was quite proud of himself for his new skill of standing in his crib and playpen. Well, now he's has taken to climbing up on his knees to play with things on the furniture as well as climbing onto our this kid is really giving me a run for my money now. I'd better find time to hit the gym and get my stamina up!

Thank you to everyone who emailed me checking in to make sure all was okay. I really appreciate it. I promise, I'll get back to ya'll soon!

Take Care!
