I swear I'm trying to catch them on camera with no luck. but I promise I will get some even if I have to take the camera to bed with me since he likes smiling at me at 4am trying to get me to not puit him back to sleep. and they aren't just little smiles i mean he smiles big smiles now. makes me wanna cry everytime he does it.. I'm so lucky to have two wonderful boys in my life that call me mama. I wouldnt trade either one for anything
About My Business
My baby is no longer a baby he'll be 3 in just 3 months 4-19. it seems like just yesterday he was a tiny baby like Eian. I can't believe how fast Alex has grown up. he's so smart and into everything. right now as i type he's watching tv and playing his game boy advance mario. just like his daddy. I'm gonna start planning his party soon. with everything else going on i need to start early. wait gotta get alex outta this level.................... ok sorry he gets stuck sometimes lol.
then my little baby is growing up too. i told ya'll he rolled over he's also smiling and making all kinds of baby noises, lefting his head and trying to get up. he is always scooting off his blanket. He is up to 12lbs 4oz and 24 in long now. it's crazy when we found out about his ds i wasnt upset i was worried about things to come if he would be behind, would his brother be made at all the attention we have to give him, was his heart ok. Today i dont even think about those things anymore. we know his heart is fine. he goes back to the heart dr in april just for a check up and then he wont have to see him except every 5 years. he's actually ahead on some and right on target with out milestones. Alex loves him more than anything. and is very protective. i wouldnt trade him for anything in teh world. those two little words are just that two little words. my son is Eian not Down syndrome. thats all he'll ever be is Eian and no matter what he does or doesnt do we'll all love him just the same.
dont even get me started on Joel. it'll be 8 years on feb 13 since that day when we started dating. yes we have had ups and downs, on time and off time. but all in all we fit together perfect. our life together is forever even if he doesnt wanna admit it lol.
Happy New Year
i think Eian's getting a cold so i gotta call his dr later he's up to around 12lbs now
OMG Eian Rolled Over
he was laying on a blanket on the floor on his back and i had his new giggling octopus ms jackie gave him on his left side working with getting him to lay his head on that side. i looked down at my phone for just a second and looked up and he was in the process of rolling over and he got all the way on his tummy. i almost cried. i had to look in Alex's baby book to see when he rolled over and he didnt do it until 4 months. eian's not even 3 months old yet. it could be a fluke but i'm the proudest mommy in the world right now.
Eian’s EI (Early Intervention)
Today was Eian's 1st real day of EI. Ms. Jackie comes once a week for an hour to our house and works with Eian. He did good. She worked with him on turning and keeping his head to the left. He wants to always lay with his head on the right side, so that is something we are working on. sometime after the new year he'll most likely be starting OT (Occupatioal Therapy).
Christmas Is Coming! Christmas Is Coming!
It's just a few days away. I can't wait. I am done with my shopping. Got everything wrapped. The boys have cute outfits. The next few weeks are gonna be so busy. But i'm so excited I can't wait to see Alex on christmas morning this year. last year he had fun but this year is gonna be the best so far.
I had the boys pictures made i get them back tomorrow. i'll post them once i do.
Eian’s 2 month check up and updates
Eian had his 2 month check up on monday he's up to 10lbs 3oz and 22" long. dr was really impressed with him. he laso got 3 shots my poor baby didnt feel good after that. then on tues Jackie from Early Intervention came over and he'll be having his EI every tues at 9am. so i'm happy he's getting that started. also we are gonan sit down next week and decided what other therapies he needs so we can get that started. He's doing so good moving his head and holding it up like a big boy.
Alex is driving me crazy the last few weeks the terrible twos are hitting us hard now. somedays i just wanna pull my hair out lol. but other than that he's doing good he's very smart and knows all kinds of things including calling me a dumb dumb head the other day when he got mad at me. He's so ready to get into his gifts under the tree. he loves all the "hoho lights" as he calls them. after xmas i'm gonna start working him him so much time a day on things that he'll need in school. since i'm gonna be a stay at home mom i've got time. plus hopefully it will give him something todo other than drive me crazy.

D is `for Down syndrome
Eian’s Cardiologist Update
he went to see a pedi cardiologist today for the first time. it went great his heart is just fine. thank god. that has been the one thing i have worried the most over since no scan was done in the hospital. he has also gained 5oz since last week. he's up 9lbs 6oz. he did so good. the dr did say he has the common open valve thingy that alot of babies have and that it will close up sometime in the 1st year so he did make a follow up appt for Eian in april. Also the greatest thing about the pedi cardio dr is that he has a 3 yr old nephew with down syndrome. so he was on a personal level with me telling me all the place to contact to get help and all the things i would need to do during his first year it was great.the lady with early intervention is coming tomorrow morning to set up everything and fill out all the paper work i'm so happy he's doing good. i'll post some pictures and videos soon of him
What is Down Syndrome?
What is Down syndrome?
Down syndrome is a lifelong condition in which a person is born with distinct physical features, such as a flat face and short neck, and some degree of cognitive disability (mental retardation). Although Down syndrome is permanent, most people who have it are able to live healthy, productive lives. Given the proper care and help they need, children with Down syndrome can flourish and grow into healthy and happy adults.
What causes Down syndrome?
Down syndrome is caused by abnormal cell division very early in fetal development. This abnormal division produces an extra or irregular chromosome in some or all of the body's cells. Chromosomes carry genetic material (DNA), or genes, to every cell in the body. The extra or irregular chromosome causes the body and brain to develop differently than in people who have normal chromosomes.
What are the symptoms?
Many children with Down syndrome have noticeable features, such as a flat face with small ears and mouth. Most young children have weak muscles (hypotonia), which generally improves by late childhood.
Below-average intelligence and physical problems often result in developmental disabilities. A child with Down syndrome may also be born with heart, intestinal, or ear and respiratory defects. These health conditions often lead to other problems, such as respiratory infections or difficulty hearing.
How is Down syndrome diagnosed?
During your pregnancy, you may choose to have tests to screen for Down syndrome and other abnormalities in your fetus. Screening does not diagnose Down syndrome but rather provides information about the likelihood that your fetus will have the condition. Screening tests include:
Fetal ultrasound, which uses reflected sound waves to provide an image of your fetus and placenta. During the ultrasound the technician may measure the thickness your fetus's neck (nuchal fold). Swelling in this area may indicate an increased risk of Down syndrome.
Maternal serum triple or quadruple screen test. This test measures substances in your blood that can give clues to your fetus's health.
To confirm a diagnosis during your pregnancy, you can have a chromosome analysis called a karyotype. This test can be done on tissue obtained through chorionic villus sampling or on amniotic fluid obtained through amniocentesis. Getting the sample for a karyotype slightly increases the chance for miscarriage. For this reason, karyotype testing is usually only recommended if screening tests (ultrasound or triple/quadruple screening) are positive for Down syndrome and/or the fetus is at increased risk for Down syndrome, such as if you are age 35 or older.
Karyotype testing can also be done in the first few days after birth from a sample of the baby's blood. It may take 2 to 3 weeks to get the complete test results. However, a doctor often has a good sense of whether or not the diagnosis will be positive based on the baby's appearance, the results of a physical exam, family history, and results of earlier screening tests (if done during pregnancy).
How is it treated?
You and your child's doctor will make a specific treatment plan based on your child's needs. This plan is adjusted as your child grows and develops. Early treatment focuses on identifying and treating health problems. Speech and language therapy, physical therapy, and nutritional counseling are examples of early and continuing treatment.
As your child matures, working with an occupational therapist can help him or her to develop job and independent living skills. A physical therapist may add exercises, and a counselor may offer ways to work on managing emotions.
Proper medical care, emotional support, and social opportunities will all help your child to reach his or her full potential. Many people with Down syndrome live into their 50s and some into their 60s or older.
MORE THAN ANYTHING PEOPLE WITH DOWN SYNDROME ARE JUST THAT PEOPLE, WHO FEEL, LOVE, LAUGH, CRY, DREAM, AND ACCOMPLISH THINGS. THEY WANT TO BE TREATED WITH RESPECT JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. DOWN SYNDROME IS NOT WHO THEY ARE IT'S JUST A PART OF THEM. GET TO KNOW THEM YOU'LL SEE.

My face may be different
Appts, Appts, Appts.
Seems everytime I turn around we have an appt for something but the craziness hasn't even begun yet. once Eian starts Therpy and all I'll be super busy.
We finally got his appt with the ped. cardiologist to have his heart check out. and for those who don't know heart problems go along with Down Syndrome. he's not had his heart looked at any yet so i'm really ready for this appt to make sure everything looks good.
I finally got in touch with Early Intervention. they took my name and info and said he does quilfy for it since he has DS. which is good. that will be his therpies and so forth until he's 3. They said that I would get a call from our local person either the begining of next week or the next since it is a holiday next week.
The dr Switched his milk and he seems to be doing better he's on Enfamil Nutramigen it's only $25 a can lol. lucky for us once i get the paper in to wic from the dr they will cover it thank god.
Eian went to the dr yesterday and he's up to 9lbs 1oz thats great he's gained from 8lbs 8oz in just 6 days. my lil piggy loves to eat.

OMG My Water Broke (Birth Story)
Tuesday i woke up to my phone ringing it was my grandma she was having trouble breathing and i got up at 5:30am and me and alex took her to the er we where there til 8 and we took her home. i had my appt at 9 am to see my new dr and have the gbs done so i left alex at my grandparents and went. i waited an hour to see the dr and after the appt we called and set my new c-sec date since i was changing hospitals and set it for 10-26 well i left and went back to get alex. we stayed there until about 12:30pm and i got alex up to leave took him to the car and my water broke. so we had my grandma and aunt take us to my moms so she could take us to the hospital i called joel at work and told him. we all got to the hospital at about 2 and it took my dr 2 hrs to get there all the time i'm leaking and having contrations. well after my dr got there they decided to transfer me to a level 3 hospital since i was only 35 weeks and off we went in the ambluance. we got there at about 6 and had to wait until 8pm for the c-sec. we went back and it took them almost an hour to get Eian out cuz i had so much scar tissue from alex. he came out at 8:59pm screaming and he weighted 6lbs and 5oz and is doing great he's a lil sleepy head and you have to wake him to geth him to eat but we got to come home today. his big brother alex just loves him so much. i'm doing good too. this c-sec was much easier than my first
it seems just like yesterday we were getting ready for Alex to make his entrance into the world now 2 and a half years later we are doing it all over again with Eian. i'm torn. part of me is so ready for Oct. to get here to have Eian and the other part is so not ready. I have so much to do to get ready but i'm so tired of being pregnant lol.
On another note alex has started telling me everytime a commerical comes on for toys that HOHO is gonna get him that. lol. this christmas is gonna be fun.
well thats about it for now. check back for more later.
********6 Weeks & 3 days Till Eian gets here******
I still can't believe my lil man is 2 years old he's so smart and even tho he's a handfull i would not trade him for anything. he'll be 3 years old in 8 months.
Then to think in 8 weeks Eian will be here. I'm so ready. We have everything ready for him. me and alex packed his hospital bag yesterday.
Can you belive that me and joel have been together for 8 years in feb. seems like a life time. things are good with us. i think he's as ready as me to get Eian here and have our family complete. now all i need is his last name lol but i'm not pushing lol.
Alex is so much like Joel it's not funny. But with my temper. what a combo lol. I can't wait to see who Eian looks and acts like. prolli Joel too. lol
We had another ultrasound the other day and Eian is all boy so no more doubts. He looks like he has alex's nose. Almost 31 weeks down. 8 more to go.
Alex played in the rain the other day for the first time he loved it and now wants to go out everytime it rains.
I posted a few new pictures. and i swear i have wrote out thank yous for the baby shower and i promise i'll get them out before Eian gets here lol.
Just An Update
Just thought i should stop in and update. all is well. we only have 11 weeks until Eian gets here and i'm so ready. I go back to the dr today. i have to take my suger test fun fun :( i hate that stuff. so far i've only gained 4 lbs. i had gained 6 but i lost 2 so we'll see today if i've gained anymore. Alex is doing good. he's growing and learning so fast. he's too smart for his age. we are still working on potty training. i atleast wanna have him trained during the day by the time Eian gets here. I've been working on the boys room it's starting to look good except all the toys Alex pulled out after i cleaned it but other wise it's getting there. i just have to clean it again and paint there names on the walls i have them in pencil i just need to paint and i'll be done.
my baby shower is next weekend and i can't wait hopefully joel will get to be off that day. I just gotta get my house cleaned now. We got a puppy his name is jack and there is a picture of him and alex in my pics. Alex is doing good with him so far he always wants to play with jack. me and joel are good too.

I'll be Having the Baby on....
OCTOBER 26 at 10:00 am. i picked my c-section date today. i'll also be having my big ultrasound on june 11 at 3:30pm cross your fingers we get to find out the sex.
15 almost 16 weeks
How your baby's growing: At around 4 inches long, crown to rump, your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 ounces. He's busy inhaling and exhaling amniotic fluid, which will help develop the air sacs in his lungs. His legs are growing longer than his arms now, and he can move all his joints and limbs. That means his hands are more functional, too. Sweat glands are appearing, and although his eyelids are fused shut, he can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, he's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but his taste buds are beginning to form. And if you have an ultrasound, you may be able to find out whether your baby's a boy or girl! (Don't be disappointed if it remains a mystery, though. Nailing down the sex depends somewhat on how clear the picture is and the position of your baby during the ultrasound; he may be curled or turned in such a way as to keep you in suspense.)
How your baby's growing: At 4 1/2 inches long (head to bottom) and 3 1/2 ounces, your baby is about the size of an avocado. In the next three weeks, she'll go through a tremendous growth spurt, though, doubling her weight and adding inches to her length. Her lower limbs are much more developed now. Her head is more erect than it has been, and her eyes have moved toward the front of her head. Your baby's ears are close to their final position, too. Some of her more advanced body systems are working, including her circulatory system and urinary tract. Her heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, circulating her total blood volume through her body many times. (By the end of your pregnancy, this will increase to about 190 quarts.) The patterning of her scalp has begun, though her hair isn't recognizable yet. Although closed, her eyes are moving (slowly), and she's even started growing toenails.
Happy Birthday Alex!
my baby turned two today. time flies fast. I can't believe just two years ago he was the tiny lil baby.He has learned so much in just these two short years. he is so smart. i'm so proud of him. well we have a busy day i promised him we would go to the park and feed the ducks and have fun. his party is saturday. i'll post pictures later
Almost 8 weeks
How your baby's growing:
Your baby is now 5/8 of an inch long, about the size of a kidney bean. She's constantly moving and shifting, although you won't be able to feel these womb wiggles for several weeks yet. Her embryonic tail is disappearing, and her eyelids practically cover her eyes. Still slightly webbed, her fingers and toes are growing longer. Her arms have lengthened, too, and her hands are now flexed at the wrist and meet over her heart. Her knee joints have formed, and her feet may be long enough to meet in front of her body. With her trunk straightening out, her head is more erect. Breathing tubes extend from her throat to the branches of her developing lungs. The nerve cells in her brain are also branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways. Though you may be daydreaming about your baby as one gender or another, the external genitals still haven't developed enough to reveal whether you're having a boy or a girl.
such a daddy's boy!
Alex is so much like his daddy it's not funny. He loves video games, women, wrestling, boobs, and ketchup. He has to do everything daddy does. When joel 1st got his tattoo alex seen it and just loved it he even took a bath at my mom's and drew on the back of his army man with his bath crayon and said like mine dada. so joel just had it touched up and i have to rub it down with lotion and after i do his i have to rub alex down too lol.
I think it is just so cute.
On a second note. this new baby is killing me. this pregnancy is so different than alex's. i stay sick to my stomach 24/7 it better be a girl lol. just don't tell joel he wants another boy.
The baby has a name now.
Boy- Dominick Eian call him Eian
Girl- Natalya Amee call her Amee
Well Friday nite Joel and I found out we are expecting again. It'll be due around Nov. 6 2007. I'm almost 5 weeks. We are excited it was a big shock but it went over well everybody is excited too. We'll just have to see how Alex does with a new baby. Good thing we got a bigger house now. lol
Joel's buying us a house
i'm excited nothing is final yet but we both really like it and it's very nice with a big back yard that is fenced in for alex to play in and he will have is own room along with a game room just for joel. i just wanted to tell everyone the news. i'll let ya know once we know something for sure

December 13, 2006 - Wednesday
Things are going pretty good here. Other than me being jobless(long story). we are trying to find ways to save money. still not sure if we are moving in with joel's parents or not. gotta work out some details with them. i don't mind paying them to live there but $200 is what we pay for our whole house right now. so who knows. alex is good acting more like joel everyday. he's learning to put words together to make whole sentances. still gotta take him to see santa. i've been making graphics and siggy for a board and i've enjoyed that. i've gotta go and take some pictures of alexa and eric for xmas. cuz we are going up to nc on sat for xmas with joel's grandparents. which joel will get to go to this year and i'm super happy about that.well thats about it so i'm out for now.

Joel gave me my christams gift early. well he let me pick it out. and i love it and i love him. i never tought i'd see the day when joel would buy me Dawn Jolly a diamond ring. but he says it's just a ring but whatever i'm still so happy with it and it's so pretty. it's 1/4 kt. in white gold. he is such a sweet heart even if he has pouted about it since he bought it. I knew in my heart he loved me even if he doesnt show it but he proved it to me no matter what he says about it lol. Joel Kaufman is the only man in the world for me even if he doesn't like it lol.
What do you think?
My Joel Can Be Sweet? WTF!!!!
nah i know he can be but it's not everyday. but he did prove to me that he still loves, which i have been doubting, we left sunday night and went to NC. we had a great time. i love being with him. he was so sweet holding doors and holding my hands. kissing me and it was a perfect few days. well anyways. we're good and so is alex he's learning so many new things its hard to keep up with them all. he's really loving HOHO, Nomans(snowman), nandeers(reindeer). and the ights(lights) the kids learns new words every couple minutes.
I had a good thanksgiving and birthday. i stuffed myself with great food. my dad-in-law is a great cook. when i left i just wanted to crawl in bed and sleep for days. alex was so sweet my mama got me a cake and they sang happy birthday to me and then my lil man blew out my candle. and stuck in little fingers in my cake lol it was so cute. we also ate at my aunts house and my cousin came with her three 3kids my god babies. alex had fun playing with kaylee, kathrine and noah. he kept trading poopers with the twins lol. me and brandi talked about her upcomming wedding. in which i'm her maid of honor. on friday i got up really early to go shopping i just had one thing i really wanted to get but i left walmart with a buggy full and $184 less in my account but i am almost finished with my shoppoing just a few lil ones to get here and there. joel send me a text yesterday tell me to ask for monday and tuesday off. i was like what why? cuz monday is his birthday HaHa joel i'm 23 and your 22 lol. i told him ok i would and i wondered why until i got home. i asked him and he was like we're gonna outta town and amandas gonna keep alex. ok i didnt get anymore details than that cuz alex was sleepy and joel was playing his wii. so i'm wondering who knows! well i got some great shots the past few days and i'm still not done. i'm trying to update my portfolio for you who don't know my dream is to become a photographer and own my own bussiness. i think i'm pretty good. you can check for yourself and let me know what you think here is my page deviantart i'm hopefully gonna be offering my services soon so keep a watch. i'm gonna try and shoot alex's christmas pictures today and i'm hoping Kirsten will let me get some belly shots to add to my collection.

I'd love for him just once to tell me he loves me it's been so long since i've heard it.. i know he does its just sometimes its nice to hear it. i'm not asking for a ring or anything that cost money i want something that means more than all the money in the world. i'd love for him to take me out just us. no alex no guys no video games. hell we don't even have to leave the house. just spend time together and i'm not talking me watch him play games we can do that on his b-day. maybe cuddle up and watch a movie. where we actually get close and he holds my hand with out me making the first move. i know i'm asking for alot but i just wanna feel like it did way back when he told me he loved me and kissed me everyday.
well thats what i want for my b-day
ok joel says if i clean our house and keep it clean we can have a party here for our birthdays since they are both coming up. mine nov 23 and his nov. 27 yes i'm older. it's gonna be cool i'm gonna invite all the guys over and have a good time. i'll be sending out invites soon. it's gonna be on nov. 18. yell at ya later i gotta get to work
well it's October. Alex is getting so big and smart. he's growing so fast. it makes me want another but i've decided that i wanna wait until he's atleast 4 i think 4 years is a good age between kids. i'll have him outta diapers and in preschool. me and joel are doing good. i'd love to be married to him but i'm also very happy with where we are now so i wont complain. although it would be nice to share a last name with my son lol. we had to get rid of teh hampster smokie kept trying to eat her. oh well i dont miss her. i'm thinking maybe a gold fish. i really wanna move. but i'm just waiting to see what joel wants to do. kirtsens doing good she's getting bigger and we are working on plans for a baby shower those important enough will get invites lol. i'm going to be in two weddings soon. my cousin brandi is getting married in dec and i'm gonna eb her maid of honor, she also wants joel as a groomsman and alex as a ring bearer. and in july my friend ashleigh is getting married. and i'm gonna be a bridesmaid. so i'm gonna be busy lol. i'm thinking about going back to school but i still dont know what for yet. who knows. i need to get busy and do a phoot shoot whith alex i havent done one is so long. i feel like i'm letting my passion go to waste. i do snapshots but i really love shoots. i'm getting together with jess soon and let her shoot alex lol. let him cheese. and for thjose who don't know about the cheese i'll tell you. we've tought alex when you tell him to cheese it he give the biggest cheeseist grin ever i just love it and so does everone who meets him well i'm gonna go.
