Happy Birthday to Me!

On Tuesday I turned... oh goodness... 28! I can't believe it. It's so unreal to me. I feel like it was just yesterday I was a little girl playing in my pink bedroom with all of my Barbies.

Now here I am, a wife for almost 8 years and a mother of two beautiful children.

My birthday was beautiful. I woke up to Michael and Wesley bringing presents into my room and putting them on the bed for me to open. Later my girlfriend threw a birthday party for me at her house, and it was SO fun to spend time with friends, laugh, and enjoy treats!

We went to dinner that night at my favorite Mexican place, and all of us were in such a SiLLy mood! We laughed and laughed and LAUGHED! Then we had cake and ice cream, did some shopping, and had lots of fun.

I took pictures, but don't have time to post them. I will get to that later.

So yes, I am 28 and my birthday was great... how could it not be with my amazing hubby and two kiddos!?

The plan was for Wesley and Sophia to be Mickey and Minnie. He wanted so badly to be something "scary", but I was able to talk him into one last Halloween as something "cute". Well, we were at Wal-Mart today and wondered over to the costumes, and he saw Luigi. For the record, this child is JUST like his Dad and Uncle Thomas... he LOVES Mario Brothers. So when he saw Luigi, he begged and begged and PLEADED his case to me, and I caved. It's not Mickey, but it's still cute!

Sophia will still be Minnie Mouse. She has a love for Minnie you would not believe. She watches Mickey everyday, and when it's over... she starts crying hysterically, and I have to start the video over. I have to admit, I love that she loves Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, etc... because I grew up loving them too!

Last year Wesley and Sophia were Peter Pan and Tinkerbell... it was perfect!

Sophia's surgery date is set for mid November. They are going to try a non-invasive procedure and if it doesn't work, we will have to travel south to a different state where they will have to do a much more serious surgery at a children's hospital.

There would be a 3 inch incision on her abdomen, and we would be in the hospital for about a week. I would have to make the trip by myself, as Wesley has school and Michael has work.

I pray the first surgery does the job.

Since the day Sophia was born she has had on and off health problems. I will never forget what it felt like to be so close to losing her the day she was born. All of these new problems bring that fear back to me, and I hate it.

Prayers, please. We love our angel and want to put this behind us and move forward with a HEALTHY Sophia!

My 200th Post

I wish my 200th post was a bit more uplifting - but I guess that is just how life goes.

Sophia sees her surgeon on Tuesday - and we are setting a date for surgery.

We really tried to avoid this, but things are not getting better on their own.

I'm a wreck. I hate having her put under anesthesia.

Some say I worry too much, but I'm a mom, and that's what moms do.
