About Me:

I'm a very happy and delightful person. I love spending time with my family. I am active and affectionate. I am strong and inspiring. I love all living things and I am easy to please. My mom thinks I am very easy to love. I bring joy, light, and love to our family. I am like a sweet sticky substance that bonds our family together. On July 6th, 2009 When I wss only 13 months old, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. I started Chemo Therapy the next day. I'm not going to lie.. it is nasty stuff, but it is saving my life. I am doing my best to not let it slow me down. I love life. I have a lot yet to experience and I am always reaching.

Look at me now

Oh goodness. I am currently wrestling with you. You want to suck on the dog treats in front of them instead of just givig it to them. I don't know how to convince you that it's gross. It's yummy to them, so it must be yummy for us -right? WRONGO.
Yesterday was another day at clinic. You were happy to see Robert, and Dr. Wright. You got to see Oliver the little Yorkie and give him a treat. You braved another port access and then met a little boy your age named Dominic. He has a tumor in his cheek and was awaiting an MRI. Hopefully it is an isolated tumor and hasn't spread. You are doing a little too good at tolerating your meds so the Doc bumped the dose of your Methotrexate up. I don't like it, but we have to do what it takes to keep you well.
A couple of days ago you went to the aquarium with Dad. I was at the school, but you must have had fun because you won't stop jabbering about it. Turtles, snakes, fishies, penguins,washing hands, fishies swimming , sharks, and on and on you go.
Lately you have been hooked on Mickey Mouse playhouse and 101 Dalmatians.
The weather has been crazy lately, but when it's decent you are begging to play outside. I love it!
You are going to the property with Dad and Mikayla tomorrow. You'll spend a whole night and a day without me. I'll join you guys with the boys on Friday. It's going to be hard on me, but you will be busy having a good time with Dad. He's all about fun.
Well, I have bills to sort and pay, a house to clean and a camping trip to pack for. I'll write again soon. Love you.

Happy Birthday Baby!

You are two already. Getting too big too fast. You are strong and determined. I love that about you. You played puppy party with the kids this morning before they went to school. That got you off to a good start. We went and had your picture taken today. We get to see them tomorrow. :) I wanted to sing Happy Birthday to you before daddy left for work tonight, but you were way too tired and didn't want to wake up from your nap so.... I guess it will have to wait until your party. You seem to be feeling good today. When I put your pretty pink dress on you, you twirled and twirled like a little princess. As usual, you were happy to see Grandma today. She came with us to the photo sitting. You had lots of love to share with everyone. We love you !

Nursey Dylan came and accessed your port today to check counts. You screamed , and said owey as he cleaned and prepped your chest but when he poked the needle in... you didn't even flinch. Once I said all better... Yep, you were fine. You smiled and waved as he left. You are so sweet and forgiving. It's no wonder why you are loved so much. Robert called. Your counts are right where they need to be so I guess they won't need to mess with the dosage of your meds again . (at least for now) I took you shopping with me today to the mall. You slept most of the time in the stroller. I will admit, it was kinda nice. You are absessed with the toilet again. This time at least you are wanting to use it properly instead of just splashing and drinking the water. YUCK!
I bet you made yourself poop at least 4 times today. You even thought the tiny baby poop was cute. You are funny. I love you baby.
