I’m Here

I’m @ MishMish.Org – be sure to update any links that refer to! Thanks – see ya there!


Fruits of his labor

This is Michael’s crop so far this week – two of Emma’s favorites!! I am going to make a cucumber/tomato salad tonight to go with dinner. Mmmm!

I’m working on things over here…

I am working on transferring my domain name, which means in the meantime I cannot use it for anything…I am transferring it b/c I decided to go back to Blogger for a while (I think – until I know for sure I’ll be maintaining both my blogger & wordpress sites) and for some reason the site I was using before wouldn’t let me change my DNS to point my domain to my blogger site. I don’t know what was going on there, but I coudn’t get any assistance and decided they didn’t need my business if they weren’t going to help me out!

So…during this mess, please excuse things if my site goes up and down or if the links change! I’m at the mercy of the transfer process!!

One Tree Hill

Old McDonald’s Farm

The Friday before Mother’s Day Michael took off & we took the kids to Old MacDonald’s Farm.I hadn’t had a chance to post about it and then we had our allergy scare – so I’m finally getting to post the pics! Enjoy!

Emma had a blast! There were so many animals & she was able to touch & feed just about every one of them! This place is neat and would be fun for b’day parties – Emma’s would be hard to have there, though b/c it’s in December and it’s so hard to predict the weather for an outdoor party. They do have huge nice pavilions, though.

Don’t they look cute???

She is just recently brave enough to get this close to the animals to feed them…

All fears seemed to be gone & she was climbing in all their pens!!

Until the chicken decided to peck her finger, though!! She didn’t like that! HA HA!

She also tried her hand at tether ball!

Aaron, of course, enjoyed the day from the comfort of his shaded stroller!

She & daddy took a train ride, too – don’t they look so enthused???

This little guy grabbed the entire bag of food from Emma’s hand – Michael had to kinda run after him to make it drop it so we could get it back! LOL

The day was a lot of fun – but HOT! Summer is definitely here. Next time we’ll have to take our suits so we can get in the water, too.

Allergic Reaction – Update

Well, we’re on day 2 of Emma’s allergic reaction to her antibiotics and I have to say I was very scared. Actually, last night I slept with her sat up and watched her most of the night. Yesterday morning when she woke up she had red blotches all over her…

Even with the Benadryl the doctor recommended by this morning it had become so much worse…

(this one is first thing this morning)(this one is from the exam room this morning about 2 hours after she got up)

The doctor gave us three prescriptions…two for antihistamines and another for a steroid. The only reason for the steroid was b/c her little face was so swollen and b/c her hands & feet hurt so bad from the swelling. She hasn’t really been able to walk much b/c her feet hurt so much. There are areas where the hives are starting to turn dark, almost like they are turning into bruises. The doctor said this was actually good b/c it meant those areas were healing.

There is nothing worse than seeing your babies sick and unhappy. I pray the medicines help her. When she is sick she never wants to eat anything – food, snacks, sweets or anything…so it’s been a struggle there to get food in her. And it still may be at least two days before the rash is gone, but I just hope all the swelling goes away today or at the latest in the morning. It is so scary seeing her like this. I almost rushed her to the emergency room, but her tongue and mouth weren’t swollen at all so I figured the drama of the ER wasn’t really needed – don’t want to scare her any more about going to the doctor than necessary.

Her files at the doctor’s office and the pharmacy are all updated to read that she is allergic to Penacillin now, just like mine say. Mother said her reaction ended up being a lot worse than the reaction I had when I was about her age to the antibiotics. I am just thankful it is only on the outside & that her tongue, throat, etc didn’t swell. And I guess it’s good this happened when she was so young – can you imagine the drama of a teenage girl waking up with her face all red, blotchy & swollen?!?!? We’ll have plenty other teenage drama without dealing with that one! LOL

Announcing Aaron Michael

Well, better late than never! Poor 2nd baby – I don’t have his baby book yet and his announcements are just now going out! Well, not even physically either – it’s been so long I’m not sure what the proper etiquette is on mailing out late birth announcements so I am just going to post them online! He’s still just as precious no matter his mother’s fopaux!!
