Ballet and questions I can't answer

Someone has a ballet recital coming up and thoughts are mixed about this. I'm a nervous wreck as she goes from being uber excited then to she doesn't want to do it at all. We'll see which wins next week. (shaky sigh)

and this little ham Grady can't get much cuter if he tries. When I get him the morning, he'll hit the deck of his crib and pretend to be asleep while giggling and saying " nigh-nigh" like he knows he's pulling a prank. He does the same thing when I go to get him out of his car seat. He says "map" any time he sees anything Dora related . If I ask him something he always responds with an "ok" like "Grady let's put on your shoes OK?" and he'll say "OK" or "Grady, let's go get in the car OK?" and he responds with an "OK" like he's my little pal wanting to please. Can u say cute??

18 month checkup and he was all smiles...until the shots. OUCH!!

Lily needed a little break from shopping to "rest her body" . I swear my kids have mono sometimes. They need mental breaks randomly and I oblige.

The other day she randomly said to me, "Mommy. I have a question for you. How come when I talk to God in bed he doesn't answer me back? Like last night in bed I told him thank you for the trees and he didn't say anything. Maybe he was napping. I need him to wake up to protect me while I'm sleeping. Okay?"

I always wonder what goes through their mind and she's at the age she can articulate everything that is swirling around like when she said "how does God protect the whole world and hold it all at once?" or "how does he make people that are far away?" She's unraveling a piece of her heart everyday and I love to see what is next. I can't wait to see what's in the heart and mind of her crazy funny brother. The other day, Lily asked him if he wanted to play Candy Land and he responded with an enthusiastic "OH YEAAAAA" and off they ran.

Lils had a scary ct scan last week because of the mold issues. Actually she was so scared I laid with her and so we both got one as we slid back and forth spooning together pretending like we were on a roller coaster ride at the fair. It showed she has a strong sinus infection from the mold which we're still treating by an awful visit to an ENT doctor where she had to be scoped but the new treatment plan seems to be working. We're starting to see the light at the end of this stinky moldy tunnel. They also saw she has scoliosis so we'll get that checked out by a back specialist next week. Holy cowabunga with all the doctor appointments and roller coaster of specialists without cotton candy at the end.

In between our appointments, we have a lot of fun checking out the new digs of the neighborhood making new friends and keeping the old because one is silver and the other is gold. Yes, I was a girl scout and loved every minute of it.

Narcolepsy, mono or Epstein Barr? Which one is it? lol

Any day it's not raining, you can find us biking, jumping, chalking and running around outside. Sometimes Grady is running further than we'd like (as in far away down the street into the next neighborhood if he could), hence the driveway fence which was the best purchase evaaaah!!

Happy Friday Eve everyone and have a great looong weekend!!!
