Sweet Babies :)

As I previously mentioned - I was blessed to have 2 new babies join the world on June 20th.  I was so surprised that they both decided to come into the world on the same day.  I remember when I found out about the pregnancies, I thought that it would be pretty cool if they had the same birthday!  But, I never imagines it would really happen.

So, who are these two little people that joined the world?  Here they are:

Adam Knox

 Lillian Cayte

Adam Knox belongs to my big brother, Michael and his wife, Amanda.  Amanda went into labor on Wednesday night and this little guy was born at 2:32 am.  It was a busy night - I was anxiously waiting for texts from my brother with updates on the labor.  They live in Indiana, so I wasn't able to be at the hospital :(  But, Michael did great keeping up posted then sending pictures and videos once he was born.

Just when I thought the day couldn't get any better, I woke up for work after a few hours of sleep and my best friend, Brandy had texted me that she was in labor!!  Holy cow!  I gave her a ring as they were about to head to the hospital, so I got dressed and headed that way too (after calling out of work)!  At first the doctor thought it would be rather quick for Lilly's arrival, but she held out until 2:18 pm.  Just like when her big brother Preston was born, the nurses brought her into the nursery and we all stood around taking pictures and videoing her getting her bath and fed.  How exciting!

Will and I spent some time at the hospital meeting Lilly, then I headed to my mom's for our drive to Indiana.  I was so excited to be able to see both babies while they are still so small.  I love the newborn age!!  Its pure bliss just holding them and watching them.  So innocent, so small, so snuggly.  Its hard to imagine that I can love these little ones so much (and Preston too!).

I wish these precious babies a lifetime of love, happiness, and health.  They will always have an Aunt Dana that they can rely on for anything!!

SmartVest Review & CF Appointment

Well, here is the long awaited official review of my new SmartVest SQL.  I don't have any current or updated vests to compare this too, so my feed back is based upon what I like/dislike versus the old and out-dated vest.

Weight - it is MUCH lighter than my ancient Hilrom Vest.  By all means, it isn't light but definitely a great improvement from my older model.  I can at least carry it myself!Comfort of vest - the fabric is much softer and less scratchy when wearing it.Technology - it has a digital screen, so I can set the time and know for sure how long I'm using it (the old one had a knob to turn).  Also, I can set different programs based on how long I want to use it, etc.  It's quieter!!  Will still doesn't enjoy watching TV with me while I vest, but I don't have to turn the TV to its max volume!  And, the dogs aren't scared of this one as much!There is only 1 I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…


My little bully babies are growing up.  Sarge & Stella turned 6 at the beginning of July and T-Bone turned 8 at the end of July.

We celebrated Sarge & Stella's birthday at home with some special treats from the local pet store.  T-Bone got to be at his favorite place on his birthday (our cabin in WV).  Unfortunately I was a bad dog mom and forgot his birthday hat and treat, but he got extra loving and sang to multiple times.

T-Bone had his bi-annual check up just before his birthday and had a good report.  We are changing his eyedrops due to the formula change in what he was using - it was making his eyes red and itchy. And then, in his ear (not the one that just had surgery) we noticed a tick like thing in one of the folds. He got very irritated with us when we messed with it, so thankfully his appointment was the next day, so I figured I'd let them piss him off.  Turns out, its not a tick.  The vet said it looked just like the mass that he saw in his other ear cana…

Farewell 34

I can't believe my birthday is tomorrow!  My #35daysofdonating challenge has been so fun and rewarding - it feels like it went by so fast.  I loved receiving input from my friends and family about organizations that mean something to them.  I even learned about organizations I didn't know existed.  In the last 34 days (35 tomorrow) I hope I've made a difference somewhere.  I know I didn't get to donate to all the suggested places, and I'm sorry if I missed one you wanted!  I wish funds were endless and I could do this every day forever!!!

You can check out my list of recipients here.

To recap my 34th year on this are some pictures of my favorite moments.
