Amundsen House of Chaos

Let's face it, when you have a kid who survived a stroke, life is always going to be a little chaotic.

I can't believe May is almost over already! This month is a huge month for us. 3 kids born in May makes for lots of birthday parties. Riley turned 1 on the 4th. I can't believe my baby is already 1. She is so little that she can't be 1 yet. I guess when you miss out on 4 months of your babies life because your other child is in the hospital a year goes by a little faster than normal. She is walking and getting into everything. Her favorite toys are Colby's syringes for his medicine. Now before you think I'm a horrible mother we don't have any needles in the house for those syringes. I just use them for the meds into Colby's feeding tube. She is starting to sign using some of the signing time videos I got for Colby. She also says Thank you, mom and dad and uh-oh. She loves to play patty cake and peekaboo. She's such a good little kiddo. Colby turned 3 the next day on the 5th. Everybody at every doctors office we go to always thinks he has the coolest birthday. It's 5/5/05 Kind of crazy that everyone thinks that is so cool but I guess it is! Colby is trying to talk more and he loves preschool. I really didn't want to send him to preschool. He has such a hard time with new places and people that I was afraid to send him. As usual he is a trooper who proved his mom didn't have to worry about him. He is sad that he has to take a month off so his teachers can have a summer vacation. I'm sad because I have really enjoyed my 2 1/2 hour break 4 days a week. Sounds awful until you see how involved my day is with everyone. Jahnna turned 5 on the 24th. I'm not sure whe she got so big. It doesn't seem possible that she is 5 already. I still remember (vividly) being pregnant with her. I like to say that she has been a whirlwind since she was concieved! If any of you remember how sick I was with her and how much she bounced around nothing much has changed. Well ok, I don't throw up 10 times a day anymore but that' about it! She is so fun. She loves her brother and sister very much and tries to very hard to help in her own way. She just finished up dance and her recital is tonight. Sometime she amazes me with the thing she says. She has asked me all week this week what my favorite thing in the whole world is. I always tell her my family and then she adds in don't forget Jesus and Heavenly Father mom! It didn't seem like a year ago I was sitting here holding a newborn on my lap and watching Colby and Jahnna jump on the trampoline. This year will be a tad different seeing as I know hold my 3 year old on my lap and watch my 1 and 5 year old play. Sometimes the changes in life aren't quite what you expect but I guess we just keep going one day at a time.
