Memorial Day Outing

Since it was raining all day today Jeff & I decided to make a trip to Leeds, Alabama to the Bass Pro Shop to see the, as AK calls them, Pish. She had such a good time looking at the fish in the fish tank, playing on the boats, and looking at the humane shelter puppy dogs outside. We left crying because she had to leave the pish and the doggies. So sad:(

Hopefully before the end of the holiday weekend we will be able to play outside in the pool and sprinkler.

Fun at Kate's Party

Ashlyn Kay's friend, Kate Northington, turned 1 this weekend. We had such a good time at her birthday party at Homewood Park. She played with Hollis, Mary Florence, Riley, & Kate, oh and of course BUBBLES! Here are some of the pictures from the party.

Vacation Adventure

Jeff & I headed to Gulf Shores with our friends the Gilmers for a relaxing weekend of fun in the sun, shrimp, and sleep. We arrived on Thursday sans children and we were ready to relax. Within a hour or so we had a couple pounds of shrimp in hand sitting on the pier at the bay having a blast. It was off to a good start. The next morning Lynlee and I went to the Beach Club for our Pre-mothers day massages provided by our sweet husbands. They were amazing! We had a great time just relaxing and then headed to the outlets for some retail therapy. After shopping for a couple of hours we grilled out and then all went to bed. It was a great day! Saturday the sun wasn't out but it still seemed like a day that needed us at the beach. Once we got to the beach the clouds had burned off and we laid out for several hours. The wind was blowing so it was nice and cool. The boys picked up sandwiches and it was great eating them on the sand. We decided we had enough sun and sand and headed back to the house to get ready to hit the dinner scene and florabama. I, absent mindedly, left a package at one of the stores at the outlet on Friday so we ran out there before dinner to pick it up. The boys decided they needed some retail therapy too. I started to feel a little sick and I was a tad bit burnt, but I didn't think it was that bad. By the time we got in the car I felt horrible and dizzy. We ran to the pharmacy to pick me up some Burts Bees Wax after sun care and some Emetrol. I decided I needed to go home and lay down. Sweet Jeff stayed with me while I shivered and slept. I woke up feeling better. Sunday morning, about 30 minutes after I woke, I started having sharp pains in my stomach and back. After rolling around on the bed in tears Jeff said we were heading to the ER. G drove us there in what felt like lightening spread. We waited in the ER for a minute then Jeff yelled at someone and off we went to OB labor & delivery. I was admitted and they started to work. The staff was so nice, slow, but nice. After a battery of test I was told I was severely dehydrated and it caused pre-term labor contractions. The babies were fine and I just needed fluids. They made us stay overnight, Jeff loved the bed-ha, and we finally left Monday morning. So needless to say our relaxing, childless vacation, turned out to end up crappy....but always a adventure! Just another scene from the award winning show called the Moran Circus!

Terrible Two's are upon us

Lately Ashlyn Kay has been a "little" testy at times. I chalked it up to one thing or the other and denied to myself that the terrible two's were here. They officially arrived On April 2, 2010! After arriving at the home of the Samford's (my employer), Ashlyn Kay, Cameron, & I all began to play on the play mat as we do each morning. Things were fine until Cameron was standing up at a musical table and AK knocked her down (on purpose) because it was and I quote, "mine, mine"! Obviously cameron got very upset. I was embarrassed and irritated that ashlyn kay had decided to be violent to stake her claim. So while soothing Cameron, AK and I took a walk upstairs to her tent and yes I said tent to where she had time out for 5 minutes. Once her timeout was over with I tried to explain to her that is not how sweet little girls act and that she had to apologize to "kiki". We came downstairs and she gave "kiki" a hug. Then cameron wanted to play with another toy which was no where near AK. But ohhhhh noooo....not gonna happen. AK ran over to that area screaming "mine, mine, mine" and when I told her no she could not do that she threw her toy across the room and gave me that devil look! Someone got her butt tore up then back to the tent! Now I would like to remind you all that this was within a 15 minute period of walking in the door this morning. Can we say...bad morning? After our 2nd timeout of the day and a spanking she seemed to be kinder and made me think she realized what was going on. Thank goodness nap time was close. I always feel bad when I spank her and put her in timeout but I don't want her to be the bully kid. I texted Jeff and told him what "his" daughter was doing and he said, "she's your daughter". I reminded him that I was the child who never got spanked nor put in time out because I was a precious angel!! ha! Then reminded him he was the 1st child to be sent to in school suspension at age 5! Now you be the judge...daddy's daughter or mommy's daughter?

1st day of official potty training

Today was our 1st day of official potty training. I have attempted off and on over the last month or so, but ended up giving up after one day due to life being too hectic. But after the 3rd time of AK ripping off her diaper because it was either wet or dirty and then trying to put her pants on without a diaper on I have decided she is ready! So we had our potty today, went through 3 pullups and no tee tee in the potty. Everytime she waits until I put her pullups or diaper back on then she wets or dirty's her diaper and then tells me, "diap diap". Which means change my diaper. Ahhh! This is miserable and it has only been 1 day. Please Lord allow AK to be a miracle child and potty train by the weekend. haha! I will keep you posted on our progress or possible lack their of.
