He said what?!?!

So last night I was getting Brayden bundled up to help Cort shovel the driveway...At one point I said "ugggg"- kind of like a moan or a whine, whatever you prefer, because I couldn't get his zipper to work at first. Brayden then said "You're freaking kidding me mom." Which is something I think I must say in situations like those...

I could not believe he said that! It goes to show that I need to be careful what I say...

Finally, an Appropriate Goodbye

Miss Allison
Miss Elissa

Miss Corri

And Miss Ramona

So when Keaton was rushed to Primary Childrens from IMC, we never had a chance to say goodbye to the nurses and doctors who we had grown to love! They have spent almost 11 weeks with Keaton when he left and it happened so suddenly, I was sad I never got to thank them or tell them goodbye.

So yesterday, Keaton and I went out to IMC to bring Christmas treats, say goodbye and just to visit. We had a wonderful time. The last time they had seen Keaton, he was around 5 1/2 pounds, and now he is 10 pounds, 3 ounces! So he has almost doubled in size. I called ahead of time to make sure to come on a day when Keatons primary nurses (and my favorite!) were working- they all happen to be working together so it was wonderful!

I made great friends from these wonderful people and am so glad I finally got to appropraitely thank them and tell them how much I appreciate what they do!

When it rains it pours right?

So we've all heard the saying, when it rains, it pours right? Well I am reaching a little bit of my limit these days and ready to just have a normal life!! I was in my docs office last week and he noticed a massive lump on my thyroid...something anyone would notice if looking at my neck...And so I went to an ENT on Tuesday, had an ultra sound done and there is a large cyst, and 2 nodules (1 nodule inside the cyst, and one next to it). The cyst will be drained and the nodules will be biopsied to see if they are cancerous. I had half my throid removed in 2002 from a nodule, but it was the good news is, the chances of these being cancerous are very slim.
Soooo...I just want to stay home and be a full time mom and be with my cute new baby! But I guess it can always be worse...always. I am very lucky that this is so minor. Now on January 7th, I'm having these things done, and then we will go from here!
On a much happier note, we are leaving on Monday for Arizona!! YAY!! I will get to see all my family and they will get to see Keaton. I am so excited. I am excited for Christmas and New Years! I am so excited to see my sweet mom with her massively broken arm...what a mess we all are!
