So I have not posted anything in 10 days. Today my son, Ivan turned 10 months, TEN MONTHS!!! WOW, in two months one year. Crazy. I love every second with my boy, he is just so happy. Right now though he has been sick, which scares me. RSV is going around here in the valley of the sun, especially kids under age 3. Ivan’s cough got pretty scary when we were out running errands this afternoon. However, he was not on any medication, it had worn off and I hold out till before bed. Patrick and I decided to buy each of the kids a humidifier for their rooms, since the air here is so dry. We will see how this effects them, may still have to make a doctors appointment.
The past two weeks have been pretty crazy, but a good crazy. I am really enjoying watching both Noah and Cello. To see how Elle interacts with Noah is amazing, she adores him. When Cello gets to my house after school, both Noah and Elle run to the front door to greet him. Well, they both run out to the car to greet him! We play board games, build puzzles, run around, dance and just have fun. The other day after Cello came home the three of them were playing monsters. In the closet under the stairs they hid, and one of them would run after the other two out of the closet and into Art’s dog cage. Cello kept coming to tell me that Noah and Elle were in there. No one was being locked in, I DO NOT lock any human in a dog cage, just Art! They were playing, being kids and having fun. So I told Cello that there was nothing to worry about, just don’t lock either of them in! Its also funny to see how they tattle on each other for the silliest things. Elle will get sassy with Noah and tell him what to do, if he doesn’t do it, she tells me he needs ‘time out.’ Elle only gets time out if she does not apologize and throws fits, she doesn’t even go into time out once a week. She is a pretty great kid, however time out does work when I need to use it.
Valentines weekend was a fun one. Thursday the 11th, Kathy(Patrick’s sister) came into town! She got in late, due to the wonderful weather the east coast had. Then Friday, we had the pleasure to celebrate with Tera and her twins, Nicole and her bambinos, Aida and her kiddos, Lea and her son and then Ali(my step-sister) and her daughter. I borrowed Tera’s bounce house and the kids had a blast. Everyone was on sugar rushes and had a blast, shoot the last guests left around 5:30pm and the party started at 10am!
Friday night Kathy and I went to my friend Yaneth’s house for a purse/accessories party. It was fun, Kathy knew a couple of the girls, so it made for a more pleasurable evening. After hanging out with the girls for a while, Kathy and I needed to head home and refresh! We were headed to the casino once Patrick arrived home from work.
Oh, the casino! We picked the wrong night, lesson learned. Still fun, but some drama. I will not get into details on here, sorry. Nicole, Tera, Kathy, Patrick and I had a great time at the main bar(what we call it). We had a couple drinks, chatted and then went upstairs to visit my brother in the nightclub! It was not the kid of crowd we are used to, and we had a couple drinks, danced and then left. We all had babysitters to relieve, so we headed home. Friday fun day is all I like to say for this particular Friday!
Saturday oh, Saturday how I felt so relaxed! Kathy had gotten me a Spafinder gift certificate for Christmas and I finally used it! I had a Swedish massage, facial and pedicure! WOW how much I needed all three. After my four hours to myself, it was time for sushi! I met Patrick, Kathy and the kids at Kona! YUMMY!!!
Valentines day was a typical one for us, we don’t really celebrate it. However, I did tell Patrick I wanted new perfume, which he got me! Queen! Since I am the queen of the house, haha. It smells good and he likes it on me. Isn’t that what counts? I made him a country dinner and we watched our favorite show Dexter! Very romantic.
Well, that is all the catching up I am doing tonight, so until next post! tata
