My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

Road Trip
Ever since Michelle came to the East Coast last January while her husband is deployed we’ve been wanting to get together IRL. We finally succeeded yesterday. We met with the kids at the Port Discovery Museum in Baltimore, Maryland.

The drive down was uneventful and the kids were raring to go by the time we arrived. The museum was great – tons of stuff for the kids to do. The only part I found a bit stressful was the net tunnel climbing part. It was HUGE and was in the center of the building but spanned the 3 stories of the building with multiple entrances/exits on each floor. So I had to keep the kids out of it for the most part b/c it would have been too easy for them to get separated and lost. With my backpack I couldn’t climb with them and leaving my bag with my wallet and epi’s was out of the question. They got to climb on some of it and were really good about coming down when I told them to. Michelle took all the girls up once to do the big slide which made Kayla really happy.

There was also a cooking class which we could not take part in. Since they were using white bread and chocolate or butterscotch chips all of which contain dairy.

Both of their favorite part of the day was going down the big slide. And Kayla was just too excited to be meeting and playing with another Kayla. She thought that was pretty cool.

It was so great to meet Michelle, Kayla and Lucas. Her Mom joined her too who is really sweet. Both her kids are just too adorable. Thanks for a great day Michelle. We all had a lot of fun.

We were able to get a group picture with the kids sitting still. Amazing!

You got some great pics! I'm so glad we were finally able to make this happen - sorry it took so long! We'll be here through June, at least (for Kayla to finish the school year out) so we'll have to try and do this again sometime :) Thanks for joining us in Baltimore!

That's so cute that your Kayla wants to bring the pics in to school!
