Ok so I read this blog Mckmama and she has a new link system. There’s a great new “linky” service available and I wanted to let you know about it. It’s called MckLinky – www.mcklinky.com. After realizing the need for a new, reliable linky capability, Brent Riggs and MckMama got together to create a free, easy to use linky service for all their blog friends.
MckLinky is a free link list feature that allows you to do include lists of other blog links like MckMama does on Not Me! Monday. You can use MckLinky any time you want your blog readers to leave a list of links on your blog. It’s simple, reliable, free...and loads of MckFun! Ok that was written by Mckmama...so try it out!!

Ok...so Ella has had blood in her stools again!! Ahh....she has been really fussy while she has had bloody stools almost everytime she poops. The doctors do not seemed too concerned....but I am frustrated not knowing. I just want to know if its a big deal or not. It bothers me especially since she has been fussy as well. We went up at church to have someone pray for her... and every since that earlier today she seems alot better....lets hope for a miracle!!! She still has blood, but not fussy at all today...praise God!! So I am hoping God answered our prayers and if not I will be ok with that....just trying to figure our mystery baby out!! That is what everyone calls her, even her own pediatrician and that was even before the bloody stools!! We had a wonderful weekend. On Friday Chloe, Ella and I went to the pool with our friends Emarie and her daughter Audrey and son Will. It was a good time and then Friday night we went to Olive Garden to celebrate Chloe's 5th birthday!! She picked it out. Then we went to DQ to get some star popsicles, cause momma can not have dairy :( Then on Saturday we went to my dads friends son graduation party. Chloe had a blast...there were alot of little kids her age...it is so fun to watch her play with other kids. She is really nice to her friends!! Then on Sunday we went to church and then to Emarie's son Will's 1st birthday party...it was a really good time. She did a really nice job as hostess and the party was alot of fun. :) Happy Birthday Will!!

How to calm a baby that won't calm

So today was the first day that Ella was SO fussy!!! Nothing worked with her today...I have not had that feeling yet of not knowing how to soothe my own baby. It was very frustrating not knowing. I hope it was just a fluke and tomorrow will be a great day with her. I left for a couple hours today with Chloe to take her to her first soccer practice and then the grocery store. Ella was home with daddy. It was a much needed little break even though I was worried and for some reason felt bad that daddy had to take care of the crying babe! I do not know why I felt like that. He is a very capable dad...I just guess with breastfeeding I can usually calm her. That is another thing...today she ate ALL day long!!! I was trying to leave to run errands in the morning and I felt like everytime I was ready she would eat and then nap. I did not want to wake her so I let her sleep..then she would wake up and then eat again...uggh...yeah it was hard but like I said before tomorrow WILL be better even if she is fussy I will be prepared :) Also tomorrow we are going to the splash pad with some friends. It has been like 93 degrees this week and we need some pool time!! Yeah Chloe and I are excited!! Summer is here!! Chloe had her soccer thing at the YMCA and she did so great!! They just practiced kicking the ball and throwing it over hand...she looked so cute!! I love her so much!! She is getting so old...we are able to talk like she is a bigger kid all of a sudden. She is SO smart!! I love both of my amazing children and it will be so fun to see them play together!! Everyone find some ways to stay cool this week with the awesome heat wave!! :)

Not a post for awhile

Wow...it has been awhile since I last posted. We have been very busy. We were out of town for all last week, celebrated Chloe's 5th birthday, Dan has been working alot, I have been dealing with a needy, adorable baby. So it has been a little chaotic. Anyways, so the cottage was fun, it is in the middle of nowhere Wisconsin. Chloe loves it, she gets to swim almost all day. Ella did not know where she was, she seemed to be a little more fussy there. Yesterday we celebrated Chloe's bday...even though it is not until next Thursday. We had family at my parents house. It was a low key fun time. The weather was awesome and sunny and hot. The kids did a pinyata and pin the tail on the donkey and got to just run around and play. When I see Chloe with older kids I just think she seems so big. She acts so old. Now we are going to be getting ready to move. I am so excited. It is always fun to go through everything you own and get rid of stuff and reorganize it. I LOVE it!! I know it is alot of work and it will be hard with a baby (I can barely clean my kitchen, since Ella) but Chloe will be with her Dad all week of July 1st, they are going to his granparents cabin, so I will have one less kid and will hopefully get some things done. Today is Father's day. We went to church and then I asked Dan what do you want to do...we will do whatever you choose. So guys what he chose??? I just want to lay around and do nothing with the family. So that is what we did. Just hung out. Then he had to go to work overnight tonight :(

The whole Fam saw the chiro

Ok...so today we all saw Ella's chiropractor. I love her and she does any amazing job. I recommend anyone and everyone to see one. I read a magazine on chiro care and really it helps your whole being. It really is crazy. Also we had Ella's 4 month check up. She is 25 and a quarter inches tall, and weighs almost thirteens pounds, at 12. 6 lbs. So she is growing :) I also told her ped. that we have seen a chiro for her acid reflux problem and that she is off meds and that we are not going to vaccinate Ella for now. Oh my, it was not fun. She went off on the vaccine issue and told me reasons why the chiro worked. Well she has her opinion and so do I. Anyways, we are going to the "cottage" next Friday. We are all getting excited. The cottage is a cabin that Dan's whole family rents out every year for a week and all the cousins and everyone go. It is a great time and a great cheap vacay. The kids love it too. They are outside the whole time, and just play in the water and sand. Well once we go and come back I will post pics.

update on chiropractor

So we were seeing a new chiro, because of insurance reasons. Well we saw the new lady twice and Dan came the second time to see the new lady. Well Ella screamed the whole time while she did what she does and when we left Dan was like I will let you go see the chiro that I love. So I was excited and saw her again on Friday. I love her, she does an amazing job and is very personable. Well Ella seems to keep on getting better and on Wednesday our whole family sees the AWESOME chiro, Dr. Katy! I will update how that goes. This weekend was really nice. On Saturday an old friend of mine who used to nanny Chloe from one to two and a half, came over to visit. Her oldest son is Chloe's good friend, and she has a ten month old and is pregnant. She is so cute pregnant. Well it was really nice to see them. Then on Sunday, we went to church and then Chloe was invited to a birthday party from a friend from preschool. We were all invited. It was at a farm. Chloe got to ride a horse and there were goats, lambs, donkeys, chickens, llamas, cats, dogs, and tons of horses. The weather was perfect, and it was such a blast.
