Christmas and Sickies!

Lets start a few days before Christmas. Poor Hayden was having trouble breathing and many nights of no sleep with lots of coughing. I took him to the Dr. and he was diagnosed with Croup. Hayden they put you on prednisone. We go home and the next day your a little better but two days after going to the Dr. I notice that you seem to be worse. You are now suddenly weezing and seem to be unable to catch your breath. I call the Dr and they have me bring you in immediatly. They take your oxygen level and you are at only 90% which is not good for a little guy. They give you a breathing treatment in the office and take your levels again and praise God you are back up to 98%. So it is determined that you will need the breathing treatments 3 times a day with a slow taper off. Finally you are on the mend.

The day after we get Hayden all fixed up Pierce is coughing crazy. Pierce you had been coughing for about 2 months but suddenly you seem severly worse. Your coughing makes you gag because of the junk coming up you are now running a 103 fever and higher. WE are at your mimi Bells and we make the decision that you need to go to Nite LIfe Pediatric which is an emergency walkin clinic for children. i take you in and they run their tests and you come back with RSV, influenza A and Influenza B, and you having walking pnemonia. No wonder you feel so horrible. I feel terrible for you. You are now on antibiotics and tami flu. The Dr. at the office also determines that Hayden likely has RSV and not croup. WE get home and you are just a mess. I finally get you to bed and not even a few hours later you are moaning and crying calling for me. I go in there and you are just so uncomfortable and in so much pain that you wanted to lay in bed with me. I was literally up with you till 3:30 am and I finally was able to put you back to your bed. I go to bed by 4:00 am and am up at 6:30 with your brother. It was a terrible night. This was one of many nights that I had had terrible between you and your brother. I always seems all the sickies come on when Daddy is gone and mommy winds up dealing with everything alone. its hard but I do it because I love you both so much.

Finally two days after all the fiasco it is CHRISTMAS DAY! MOmmy is still very tired because she hadn't got much sleep but I am up early with breakfast in the oven and with you boys up and dressed waiting for Mimi and Poppa Bell to come over. Daddy and I decide to exchange gifts. I got Daddy a robe and pj pants. And he totally swept me off my feet he got mommy razors, VS underware, VS perfume and a BEAUTIFUL Sterling silver braclet with a charm that had both Hayden and Pierce on it. It was beautiful an dmommy was sooo suprised that Daddy could be so sweet. So finally Mimi and Poppa come and we open gifts. It was so much fun. Pierce you just wanted to open every ones gifts. You were so happy and had so much fun. We played and opened gifts ate breakfast and just enjoyed company.

After breakfast and gifts we went to your mimi and poppa fullers house. We opened gifts there and had a great time. We than went to aunt terrys and dales. Pierce and Hayden you guys were both wonderful. you both enjoyed christmas so much. Hayden you love the gifts you love the music and the lights. Pierce is so funny because anytime you play with any toys whether they are yours or his you come up and try and take it from Hayden and say "my turn". you are so sweet. Both of you boys are just such blessings from God and I am so thankful that we are where we are today. Thank you boys for making me a mommy. Pierce your birthday is tomorrow how exciting!

Of course today Pierce I must add you did your first puke! You were acting crazy and had drank a bunch of water and all of a sudden puke. Lovely. Hey of course Daddy is at work so I clean up we cuddle and off to bed. I love you boys thank you thank you thank you for loving me too!!!

Pierce your 2nd Birthday!

I can't believe I haven't written about your 2nd birthday party considering we celebrated it on November 27th! I guess time gets away when you have family and kids and a busy life surrounding you. WEll where to get started. It looked as though it was going to be a very gloomy day but we were (daddy and I) determined to make this your best 2nd birthday ever. I had been preparing for this day for weeks and the last part to do on this day was put it all together!!!

Daddy got home from work that morning and decdied that his boy needed ballons for his birthday and that we needed more food. So off we went we got about 20 ballons half filled with helium and I got more food and home we came to start assembling. The morning started early but it still didn't seem like enough time. We fed you lunch and sent you to bed and Daddy and I were off like mad men!

Up went your bounce house first, than the ballons got tied to tables chairs and trees, fishing polls went out back by the fence, cupcakes were baked, a cake was frosted, cupcakes were frosted and sprinkled, food prepared, decorations set out, baths taken, a baby fed, clothes bough because Lord knows you didn't have a nice outfit to wear for your birthday and before we knew it it was almost 3:00 pm and the party was about to start.

You woke up in a pretty bad mood but started changing shortly after I gave you a cookie. Its amazing what a cookie will do for a grumpy little boy. Than your Daddy opened the blinds in the back and you got to see the party scene. you were blown away. The look in your eyes said it all!! Your first guest to arrive was Kella with her mom Kelley and Josh. You got hugs and you guys were the first to jump on the bounce house what a ball you had.

Some of your guests were: Gracie, Christina, Matt, Nanny Dyal, Aunt Jackie, Nathan, your grandmas and grandpas, great grandma wheeler, aunt terry, Brenda, Ramon, Rachel, Daniel his mom and Shayla, Kerriann, ethan, Xavier and Zach!
Your party was wonderful.

All the adults set out side while you kids jumped, ran, played on the play house, played with the sand, ate and just really had a ball. Your Daddy grilled hot dogs and hamburgers it was delicious. We also had bbq beans, coleslaw, chips, fruit salad, cheese and crackers! After we ate around 5 things quited down and we all came in side as the sun was setting. We sat you p and sang happy birthday to you! You loved it and requested for us to sing it again... so of course we did!!!! After happy birthday cake and icecream eating and cupcake eating we opened gifts.

You got so many wonderful things you are just such a special little boy. All these people came because they love you and you have affected them in ways you coul dnever imagine. That day will go down as one of the most fabulous days from your beautiful smile to your high jumping to you excited gift opening. You really are a special boy and I am so thankful to be your mommy! This day was wonderful and seeing your happy smile and your beautiful face I knew all the hard work, money and time that was put into your 2nd birthday was totally worth it! You are the light of our lives! We love you little boy! Your mommy and Daddy!
