I'm A Slacker! I Admit It!

Well blogwise anyway! LOL Yes I've been MIA off and on and it's not because I don't truly enjoy my blog world or my bloggy friends I just truly have a hard time breaking away from real life lately to blog about it. Crazy I know! But since I know you are dying to know what's been keeping me from telling you all about my excitement lately, I'll update you! :)

First as you all know I recently parted ways with two friends. This was very hard for me and I've been struggling with it. But I know that it's the best thing. I read today that sometimes you have to have the "props" knocked out from under you so that you learn to lean on God. Boy has that been a true statement for me.

Second my mom came and we had a great visit. She even went with me to get Jaxon's very first hair cut. He was such a big boy! Sat there and got all his little curls cut off. It was so hard for me because those curls are the only thing that survived the NICU. But he can't keep those curls forever and it was driving me insane that his hair was hanging over his ears. So here is some pictures from his big boy hair cut! :)

Next I said goodbye to one of my dearest friends, Kim. They PCS'd from Hill and are headed overseas. This was so hard for me. They lived right across the street from me so it definitely still gets me when I look across the street and there isn't anyone over there. Well, any of Kim's family anyway. I got to watch Baby Joey for a little while right before they left and him and Jaxon had a very good time being silly boys together. :) Here's some cute pics from that day!
Ian and I managed one night out together. We went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner and then we met Ian's friends at Bogeys. We had a good time. Here's the only shot of me and Ian that night. It was pretty silly looking but what can I say that's us!

Then I think it was the next morning Jaxon woke up and began to throw up. He couldn't stop. Then he just got very sleepy and wouldn't do anything but lay there. He was also running a fever. So I took him into Primary Childrens and they admitted us overnight to the RTU (Rapid Treatment Unit) because he was dehydrated and wasn't perking up with his IV fluids. I was completely exhausted but the good news was that the next day, after lots of IV fluids and the throwing up finally stopping, he was much better and we were able to go home.
So we came home on Sunday. Tuesday was Brennan's 7th Birthday and Jaxon's appointment with the ENT. So we got up and took J to the ENT and they scheduled him for tubes on Wednesday. (Yes the NEXT day!) So after the ENT I had some other errands to run. Then I grabbed some cupcakes from the store to take to Brennan's class. I went home and fought with Tricare most of the afternoon to make sure they would cover the surgery. UGH it was literally a struggle. Finally that afternoon I got the answers I needed and so I got to enjoy the rest of Brennan's birthday. We made taco's for dinner and had mini ice cream cups for dessert!
The next morning we took Jaxon to the surgery center for his tubes. It went very well and only took like 15 minutes. He wasn't too happy when he woke up though. But I'm hoping that there won't be anymore ear infections.

So we made it through those obstacles and we got to have fun at Classic Fun Center on Saturday for Brennan's birthday party. We all got to skate, bounce, eat cake! Lots of fun!
Me skating with Jaxon in his stroller!
Brennan blowing out his birthday candles on his transformer cake!
He got a ton of new toys, transformers and power rangers seemed to be the theme!
Brennan and Mommy
Jaxon was wiped out from the party!
Well there has been other stuff going on but those are the most important high lights. I have orientation on the 29th for school and I start March 3rd. Wish me luck! I'm so nervous about going back to school. Hugs, Denise
