Pictures of Roxie

Martin has decided he doesn't want his picture to be taken. Every time I take a picture of of him he run away shouting "NO NO NO" I think he believes I am steeling is soul with ever flash of the light. So I had to settle for my little Model!! Who couldn't love that face!!

Roxie is standing and Grandma's Hat

Thank you Grandma Bremner for Roxie's New Hat!!! The same day Grandma Bremner's hat came in the mail was the same day Roxie decided to show everyone how she can stand up all by herself. It is only the beginning...

Big Boys Can Hug Girls

Martin can be the sweetest boy in the world and I truly love him with all my heart!

I was busy getting the kitchen cleaned up from the Tornado that passed by (ROXIE) and I noticed it seem really quite and I kept thinking Roxie made a dash for the stairs and I look over and Martin is giving Roxie a big hug and say " See Big Boys can Hug Girls." Than he gave Roxie a sweet kiss and said " I love you Roxie so much." I almost started to cry and than Martin decided Roxie should be on her back and he shoved he down.

Same day Martin decided he wanted to play patty cake with Roxie and I wish I had it on film it was so funny because she was laughing so hard and Martin was giggling.

Every day is the Great Adventure of my life.

I have been trying for a week to put up videos of Roxie and Martin but so far it doesn't seem to be working. I'm not sure if the video to long it is about 1min and I have tried to edit it but it still doesn't seem to want to publish it. Any Ideas?

Random Pictures of Martin and Roxie

Just a few random pictures I took of Martin and Roxie.

There comes a time when a woman needs to stop thinking about her looks and focus her energies on raising her children. This time comes at the moment of conception. A child needs a role model, not a supermodel. ~Astrid Alauda, on the "hot mom" trend

Martin's Pictures

Martin loves to take pictures of everything and every body but it seems one person gets the most camera time and that would be his model Roxie!!

Locks for Love

(Only pictures I have of my hair)
I decided after seeing a Saint Jude Ad at the movies while preggers with Roxie I would donate me hair to Locks For Love. It was very powerful and moving ad and it brought me to tears because all I kept thinking was if that was my little girl I would want her to have a wig. So finally the time came to decided to keep or to cut. I never thought in million year I would ever have a hard time making this decision because I have always had short hair ever since 4th grade when I begged Sister Blake to cut it all off when she was only suppose to give me a trim and perm.

After a month of thinking about it I decided to donate my hair. She cut 10 inches for Locks and cut an additional 2 inches for the style. I couldn't believe my hair was that long and I do miss having long hair but that is the best part it will grow again.

Sleep and Vegas

Doug left for a business trip to Vegas this week and I stayed home because Roxie still needs her Mom. Background ever since Doug and I have been married I have never been able to sleep when Doug goes out of town so like always I haven't slept in three day and if I do sleep it isn't more than 3 hours. This week was the hardest not only did I not sleep but neither did Martin. Every night he would wake up around 3am crying wanting his Dad or saying his stuffed puppy wanted dad. Roxie is such a light sleeper that when Martin would cry out she would wake up and than all of us would be up at 3am.
Last night was the worst I had finally fallen asleep around 1:30am and I hear this wimping coming from Martins room about 2:30Am so like a good mom I head into his room and find him standing in his bed crying because he wants his Dad. I tell him we will see dad tomorrow and he layes back down and goes to sleep. Than again at 3:30 am Martin let out a scream and I go into his room and again he is standing telling me he is scared and I again rub is back until he fall back asleep. While I was putting Martin back down Roxie wakes up and she wants to cuddle (WHICH NEVER EVER HAPPENS) So I put her in bed with me until she falls back asleep. Now I'm thinking I can finally get some sleep. NOPE 5:30am Martin calls for me again and says he had a very bad dream so I climb into his bed and cuddle until he fall asleep and than head back to my bed until 7am when both kids wake up. I have decided Doug is never aloud to leave town unless I get to go with him. Last night was worse than any night I had with Roxie as a new born.

OH and do 3 year old get more teeth? And if they do does it cause them not to want to eat?
