Last Day :(

Today was Hunter's last day at playgroup in Lanse, MI.. we will soon have to find a new playgroup in Sacramento, I'm so sad as I loved all of the mothers there and we will especially miss Hunter's home visitor, Katie!

But while it was bitter sweet.. Hunter had a really good time with his friends.. while he was playing fireman and the other little girl was a farmer hahah!

Best Buddies.

Hunter just absolutely in love with his baby brother.. everything is about baby - "aw baby cute" "it's okay baby" "Hi Baby!".. and on and on.. he wants to do everything for him, and he always wants to hold him LOL.. then after about 15 seconds, he makes this face, and says "here baby" in other words.. my arm is hurting, please take him from me LOL!

Bella Bands

So I got a Bella Band while I was pregnant with Van.. and found another use for it post pregnancy lol. Today Van was just super fussy, he's already teething! He's typically not fussy on his teething bad days, but today was the beginning.. So I put him in my lap (the only place he would be calm and was trying to sleep).. and wrapped us in the Bella Band.. he loved it.

Oh and Happy Valentine's Day! I know this isnt a Valentine's Day photo, but there's pink in it.. thats a little credit, right?!

Good Day!

Today we found out that all of Hunter's tests came back all normal, the only thing that came back abnormal was his vit D was a little low.. so he has to take a high amount of vit D supplement.. which apparently if it's low can trigger the alkaline phosphorous (the count that was skyhigh) to be high.. so today was a very relieving and happy day!

sorry for this mess you see here LOL.. it was very late!

Today Was a Big Day

Today was the day that Hunter had an ultrasound, an x-ray, an injection for a CT scan, and then the CT scan last.. which means, my little guy had to be "put under".. of course they need people to be 100% still while doing these types of scans, and being my little guy can not sit still, they had to sedate him.. it was the WORST feeling in the world to walk away from my child and leaving him in the hands of complete strangers. I'm so glad that they gave him a gas mask that put him under temporary sleep.. so I was able to be there while he fell asleep.. and then I gave him a couple of kisses and had to walk away so they could give him an IV drip to give him the real anesthetic to be asleep.

I had already recieved the results of the ultrasound as well as the xray.. both came back clear!.. I got a call last minute before closing for the results on the CT Scan.. but I missed the call, I am assuming because the pedi's nurse was going to tell me over the phone the results, that those came back clear as well!!! the only thing we have left to hurdle over, is Cilliac Disease. If it is not this.. then it's a Vit D deficiency in which can be controlled with a simple vit D supplement.

here is a photo of Hunter being prepped.. the very nice nurse let him play with her stethoscope.. he really loves them. Then gave him this cute Moose who Hunter then was "listening" to Moose's fault. He loves that Moose, who is already named "Muscle Moose" for the brave little kiddos!

Cupcake Day!

Today I made cupcakes for Hunter and Van's playgroup.. I am no baking by any means, nor do I really know what I'm doing, but I like to pretend lol!.. We also made cookies that Hunter liked to coat with sprinkles!

Bath Fun!

Today we had some bath fun, Hunter loves bubbles in the bath and typically when the boys bathe together, I don't put in the bubbles because of Van... but, I gave in this time.. and Hunter was having a ball putting bubbles on his brother!

Get In The Spirit!

Hunter and I went out looking for some Valentine coated M&Ms and could NOT find any! Walmart didn't have any either, surprisingly! When we got home, I thought to try one more place that I hadn't thought of, and.. they had some! But, only with Peanuts.. I needed them to make cookies with for Hunter and Van's playgroup, but because of peanut allergies I thought not to go that route, but I still bought them.. for home lol!

Sort This.

Hunter LOVES Shape Sorters.. but, he seems to only really like them when they are not his lol. Doesn't it always work this way?

What We Take for Granted

We are still waiting for the results of the two most important tests.. and in the meanwhile.. while everything is running through my mind, one minute im positive about it.. the next I'm in tears over the "what if's".. but while going through this emotional roller coaster it just keeps reminding me just how precious everything really is.. I now give 10x more hugs and kisses to my children than I normally would in a day, and let them know how much I love them. Everything Hunter now does just makes me smile and more proud of him.. we really do take everything for granted until something happens to someone you love. I really just appreciate life more and what we have been given.. I don't think that I could really stress enough to people that everything we have is very dear to us and to not ever take anything that you have for granted. This whole thing, whether it comes back good or not so good, I will always look at life differently now.
