little bit about us....
Tyler is my husband, soul mate, best friend, team, partner, lover- everything you can think of. Of course we have our moments... who doesn't? he is a 22 yr old forklift operator at an international farm equipment company. he is an amazing father- one of the most hands on ones i have ever seen. he enjoys working on his racing truck..which is actually how we met (another story for another time) he is also my biggest helper. he helps with EVERYTHING. he cleans cooks helps with the boys... i cant complain :)
Blake is our firstborn son, 19 months old. he was born vaginally (induced @ 37 weeks 1 day for high blood pressure-had him the next day at 1:00pm) on March 24th 2009. He was actually due April 12th 2009 which was Easter. He was 20 inches long and 6 lbs 10.4 oz. he was a peanut, but from then on, he grew non stop becoming 95th percentile by one month old. and then stayed at 95th or off the charts for good. he was even on breastmilk the first 2 months! I remember him drinking 15 oz every feeding at 4 months, when i finally asked the doc what i could do...his appetite was insatiable!! The doctor actually gave us the go ahead to introduce solids. his body was just ready! and he did great! He is now the most pleasurable child, most always well behaved and listens well. and is simply sweet! he is my gentle giant :o). His favorite things are: fans, balls, lights, people, phones, remotes, food, and his grandparents (all 4...and all 7 great grandparents...his great great grandma died early this year :( ). His vocabulary is now about 30 words or a little more. lets see how many i can think of: ball cup uhoh up puppy dog kitty nanna momma dadda baby guy hi ear eye car clock tick tock cheese girl butterfly food hot cold hat etc.
Jordan is our newbie. he is 5 weeks 3 days old today. due sept 22nd 2010, born sept 12th 2010 at 8:11 am via c section (dystocia, heart decels, partial transverse lie) i was 38.5 weeks preggo. he was 7 lbs 8 oz and 21 1/4 long. nursed great from the get go. he has many stomache issues that i wont get into now, but all in all he is not the happiest of babies (nor WAS blake). he like stripes, nursing, being warm, nursing, and nursing. and being patted on the bottom. he isnt growing as fast as blake did but thats fine with me and my back.
me. I am Liz (Elizabeth) as many of you already know. I am a 21 year old stay at home mother of two under two. i am also of course a wife. i come from a happy wonderful family which i adore, my mom and dad, and my older brother. i enjoy horseback riding (i used to be in show jumping and had a horse named Lacey), as well as painting and drawing, and sculpting- when i have access to a wheel.
see? all that punctuation and proper form/grammar went real fast lol.
