Parent Magazine Contest

Good Morning Everyone,
Makenzie was entered into a Parent Magazine Contest this week. I was wondering if you could take a few seconds out of your day and vote for her. I would be cool to see her at the top. I don't want to be one of those crazy parents that has an obsession of putting the children into contest. But with this one Makenzie was entered into it. Not really sure how she became one of the finalist.

So My question to you is...
Can you please go vote for her daily?!  It literally takes just a few seconds to vote.
Here is the link...

You are more than welcome to go ahead and share it on your facebook or even post it into your blog.
Lets see how far she can go!!
Thank You all for all your support and help =]

Family Update

Wow, it sure has been forever and sometime since I have blogged. A lot has happened since the last time I wrote on here. So I'm going to do a quick little update on everything.

 -- Many Great opportunities have been put in his path. He/We are definitely looking forward to our future.
-- He plans on going back to school starting in July. He wants to get his masters now. Crazy Boy but very proud of him.
-- He is dieting and working out on a daily basis now. He is definitely looking mighty fine. =]

-- I'm no longer working at the billing office that I had my externship at. I'm currently a stay at home mama until the middle of May. I was offered a part time job with the kids pediatrician. =] Which means, that we will not have to put the kids in preschool anymore. Saving $1200 a month and I wont be spending $200 in gas a month to get to work every day. So we definitely have scored in savings with an extra $1400 a month. =]
-- I am also dieting and working out. Soo close to my prepregnancy weight. So I am very excited about that.

--Just turned Two in March. We had a Minnie Mouse Birthday Party for her.
--She is soo in love with Minnie Mouse. We are sure looking forward to our trip to Disneyland in September.
-- She has been having many ear infections since the beginning of the year. So this past Thursday, We had to have tubes put in her ears. I was completely okay with her getting the procedure but I was not okay with her getting completely put under even though it was for literally 5 or so minutes. After the surgery she slept for a good 4 hours when we got home.  When she woke up, she was a totally different person. Her voice is so much clearer.
-- Speaking of voice, she knows about 300 words if not more.
-- We are still working on the potty training. She knows when she has to go and she can usually hold long enough to tell us that she has to go. So we hurry and run to the bathroom. We did get her some training panties. She has been wearing them around the house. I work on having her go potty every 15 to 30 minutes just so she can get in the habit of going and recognizing that she has to go. It really seems to be working. We have not let her wear her training panties out of the house just yet, just because we want her to get in the habit still at home. But I think we are getting very close.
The Marker won the Battle

-- He has 4 teeth now. Chris seems to think that he does not have any other teeth other than the 4 that he has. But I can see the other LiL teeth coming in.
--He is officially ONE years old. I can not believe my baby is a year old already.
My handsome LiL Man!

--He also has been battling a few flu's. Every time the wind blows or he gets a little cold... he gets croup. Luckily, I have the breathing treatments that I can give to him on a daily basis if needed. Today, I took him in to the doctors because he has been running a little fever off and on over the weekend, plus he has been very croupy. So I figured it would not hurt to take him in. We got him in and his doctors are starting to think that he has asthma. However, he is to LiL to be tested for it. But he is matching up to all the requirements to have asthma such as: Does it flare when it is windy outside?...yes! When he starts to get a LiL cold does it end up to being a barking seal cough?...yes!
Does it get worse when he is outside or inside?...Outside when all the plants are at bloom. and there were many more questions that she asked me. So he is not fully diagnosed with asthma yet but  its starting to sound like he has it.  They did give him some medicine that he has to take everyday. =[
--On a happy note, he is trying soo hard to walk. He really wants to keep up with his sister.

**Things that we are looking forward too*
--Heading to Cali in just a week to spend time with my dad and step mama.
--In June, We are heading to Oregon for a Gerhardt gathering.
--September, we are going to Disneyland. It will be the kids first trip to Disneyland.
--December, take a trip to Minnesota for a Gerhardt Christmas.

19 Months

Dear My Beautiful Princess,
You are 19 Months Old Today!! You have definitely have grown to be such an amazing LiL Person. You bring so much joy to your Daddy and Mommy as well as the rest of our family and friends. You just have the cutest smile and personality.

You are definitely my little princess -- you are starting to love your bows again. There was a period of time where you did not like wearing them but thank goodness you are back into loving them. One of these days, I will make the time to make you new ones that go with all your clothes.

Shoes -- Mommy and Daddy are starting to notice that if you don't have to wear your shoes you wont. You would rather just go barefooted. Trust me, if Mommy did not have to wear shoes all the time she definitely would not.

Food -- You are becoming be the quite the lil eater. I honestly do not think I can think of one item of food that you do not like. You will eat anything. Your favorite foods are Chicken, cheese, and bananas.

Toys -- You love playing with all your toys. Your newest favorite toy is your baby dolls. You love bring your baby every where we go. I think it is soo cute. You do everything mommy does to your brother but to your baby -- you burp her, you feed her, you love her, you put her to bed and say night nite...It is the sweetest thing.

Movies -- We are starting to let you watch TV a little more than you ever have, but we have let you watch movies more than anything. Your favorite movie is RIO...You dance and you are glued to the TV when that movie is on.

Our LiL Helper -- You are definitely a great helper. When Kayden cries you bring a bottle. If its close to bedtime you pull out his bath. If the sun just rose you bring him a toy and if a movie is playing you will cuddle up to him.

LOVES -- You love giving LOVES. When we ask you to give us 'Loves' you stop what your doing to give mommy, daddy and brother some kisses and hugs.

Talking -- You say a handful of words but you would rather get by pointing or using some kind of hand gesture to show us what you are trying to say. Daddy and I think that you will start using yours words any day now but we are honestly convinced that you are just waiting for Kayden to start talking so you can talk to him.

I Love You, Princess.
I love watching you grow each and every day.
Love always and forever,

M.I.A Status

Lately, I have been M.I.A with me finishing school, starting a new job, and just being a mother of a 19 month old & 6 month old and trying to be the wifey my hubby deserves. Which leaves barely any time for "me" time.

I hope that I can find the time for "me" and time to be able to do what I love to do...which is blog about our family, updates, photos or anything else that comes to mind.

Sooo I will do a quick LiL Update...

* I just graduated from Northwest Health Careers for Medical Billing and Coding.

* I was hired at the Billing Company that I was doing my externship at.

* Found out that My Brother in Law, Luke and Sister in Law, Lindsee making me an Auntie to a beautiful baby boy. I'm soo happy for them and can not wait to me my nephew.

* Hubby is in a pretty intense training class for work

* We just celebrated two years being married =)

* Makenzie is growing like a weed ... & I think we have entered the start of terrible twos. =( But this shall past...hoping sooner than later lol She has all of her teeth but one. (Which is crazy to say that she has all her teeth but one) Makenzie's newest thing is bring a baby with us where ever we go. Its soo cute, she holds her baby like I do with Kayden, she burps her baby, tries to feed her, and she will even put her baby down for night nite...which she actually says.

* Kayden is finally starting to sit up but falls over every now a then, He is starting to hold his bottle by himself, and he is starting to walk in his round about now, He is a roller, put him down and few seconds later he will be on the other side of the room. He is definitely a busy bee just like his sister.

My Handsome Hubby and I

My Handsome LiL Man

Until Next Time...
Have a Great Night =)

6 Months Old

Dear LiL Man,
You are growing up to be quite the LiL cutie. I still cant believe that you are a half of a year old. Can you please stop growing up soo fast. It is making me really sad. Especially this past weekend when we went to buy you a bigger car seat. I was not expecting that to happen right away.

You definitely loved sitting up while we were shopping for your new car seat. Mommy and Daddy Definitely loved listening to all the LiL Giggles coming out of you.

Lately, you just love to smile and smile and smile. Which makes me feel amazing. You are one happy and healthy lil man.

You Love hanging out with Makenzie and playing. This past week, you and Makenzie were just hanging out in your highchairs, and daddy and I were just sitting back watching the two of you. You both started playing and laughing at each other. It was the cutest thing ever.

You love to roll over from your back to your belly. No lie, I would put you down, within a few seconds of putting you down, you are on your belly.

I'm not to sure what your stats are at this point, but you have your check up in a few weeks. =)
If I had to guess on how much you weigh right now, I would have to say 20 pounds. You are definitely growing up to be quite the cutie. I just love watching you discover new things.

Things you Enjoy...
~Sitting up
~Rolling Over
~Eating Food
~Playing with Kenzie
~Peak a Boo
~Being Tickled

I Love You, Kayden Christopher Roy!!
Love always and forever,
