How much can they remember???

My hubby and I were out in our pool with Little Lulee the other day. She loves to "chwim" as she calls it.

I was asking her all kinds of things just enjoying the moment with her when I came up on this one question she got very excited about. I asked her "Do you remember being born ?". She looked at me and said "Uh huh, arm". I said "what about your arm?" She took her hand and punched her fist up toward the sky.

Some of you know that when I had her I had to have an emergency C-Section because she was trying to come out arm first. Which by the way, the day before we went to see the new Superman Returns movie. Coincidence??? Maybe. Ha-ha!! So there she was with her hand down and the doc did an exam and she grabbed his hand. The doc was surprised to say the least. He even let hubby check the hand out before birth. Lulee was waiving at him.

I don't recall her ever hearing her whole birth story, I mean it's possible. It is just so cute and shocking to ask her the question and she will look at you and shoot her arm fist first up into the air every time.

We took her to the doc for a routine check up, which by the way she did beautifully at this visit which is really saying alot for this doctor. We switched doctors recently from one that had been my oldest's doctor for thirteen years. I was really anxious about meeting the new doctor because Lulee is always so scared of any medical facilities.

This doctor was amazing. She came in and decided to stay far away from Lulee and said she wanted to talk to Mom and Dad to get to know about her. She grew really comfortable with the doctor and then the doctor saw birdies in her ear and Lulee fell in love with her at that moment.

Almost everyday since the visit she has said over and over how she did good at the doctor and she will also say "Mommy, I like it Doctor". This is really nothing short of a miracle.

Anyway, while we were there we told her of the birth story and what happens when we ask her "the question". She asked the most obvious question of whether she has heard the birth story or not, but she said that there have been stories that babies have remembered stuff from birth, so maybe Lulee does remember.

Maybe we all remember stuff like that, but the older we get we lose those memories when replaced with more current memories.

It definitely makes you think.

Just a quick update.

Olivia is scheduled to have her surgery this morning. Please say lots of prayers. Her Mom and Dad are really nervous about the surgery. Please pray that she makes it through the surgery and recovery without any problems.

Olivia made it through surgery and anesthesia beautifully. She is now recovering with her Mom and Dad at home. They have determined that they believe it is a typical dermoid cyst. They are sening it off for testing and they will have the results in a couple of days.

Ian is recovering really well and can't wait to start farming with his Daddy, according to his Aunt Jolie.

Also Mandy is doing really well handling her treatments with chemo and radiation.

Thanks for everyone's prayers.

My Baby Got Braces

Here's Sadie Bug awaiting her "grill", ha-ha!! She was so excited and nervous at the same time. She has been waiting for this day for a long time. She knew what color she wanted to get and made sure to dress accordingly. She got the color perfect pink and she had her pink shirt, pink mani and pedi and probably pink undies too. She takes the matching thing seriously!!! She got that from her great grandmother Nanny.

Here she is getting her "before" pic done. She looks like a cute little duck doesn't she.

Lying there with MUCH anticipation. Perfect Pink here we come!!!

This lady was so nice as she prepared her teeth for braces. She also finished up by putting the wires on and the color bands for the brackets. She must have known what color Sadie Bug was going to choose because she dressed accordingly as well. :)

Here he is, Mr. Orthodontist giving my baby a new smile.

Look how proud she is of her new braces.

We of course all came down here for this big event. Lulee came back a couple of times to check on Sadie Bug. She hung out with Daddy mostly in the waiting room doing what she does best. She loves to clean things. Daddy gave her a wipe and here she is cleaning under the table. She cleans all the time at home too. She's a sweetie!

Hubby's Ficticious Wife

All of you who know my hubby knows that he is a talker, he is a regular Chatty Kathy!!! That's why we go so well together like rice crispies and marshmellows.

My hubby is such a handy manny. He fixes everything at home from cars to computers to even holding my hairbows, that I've made, delicately so the glue can dry. Believe it or not, he even cuts his on hair. 99.9% percent of the time it looks good too.

The other night he decides he is going to cut his hair and it gets a little on the late side once he's started. He then decides he is tired and will finish up his haircut the following morning. Needless to say he doesn't finish up the haircut until a week later therefore forcing him to sport a date-stamped mullet.

OH MY GOSH as if that wasn't bad enough to look like that. He is getting ragged at work and I find out that he has told all of them that his wife cut his hair and just has to finish the job. Whatever floats his boat right?!?!?

I live in the South and will not reveal exactly where, but I know very little about hunting. I have done my fair share of fishing and have only gone hunting a few times. I didn't go to hunt, but to hang out with my Grandad and my Dad also on a few occasions. Those hunting ventures were to hunt squirrel and also dove, but never ever have I gone coon hunting, nor do I know of anyone who has. However, my hubby was talking about me at work one day and he and this guy apparently were discussing hunting and it came up that I had gone coon hunting. WHAAAAAT???

Does this man even know me at ALL?? Were we even BEST FRIENDS (for three years) ???
Ok, so either my hubby is super confused and has a fantasy of being married to Daniel Boone's sister, or he just loves to see what people will think about me once they've met me in person.

Either way I have to make a really good first impression, huh!!!

Prayer requests

I have prayer requests that I would like to share with you all today. Please pray for a friend of mine, Mandy James she has had surgery removing a brain tumor learning that it was cancerous. She is now undergoing radiation and chemo. Here is her website to read her whole story.

Please pray for my friend Jolie's little nephew, Ian. He is 11 years old and just had surgery last night for appendicitis. He will be in the hospital for a week for recovery and monitoring.

Jolie and her nephew Ian

On to a happier prayer request, my friend Stephanie and her hubby had their baby yesterday and I would love for them and their new baby girl to be added to your prayer list as well. I spoke to them this morning and they are "cruisin' " as Steph said, which translates to doing well.

I stole a copy of their family pic (before new baby girl). Aren't they a cute fam.

Thanks for your prayers.
