Stick Family

After a month a being sick on and off....we got some bad cooties in our house one week....which lead to Aidan getting really sick. After many visits to the ER and to the doc....we were finally admitted to St Joe's hospital. Aidan had Pneumonia :( His 1st couple of days were no fun...he was hooked up to oxygen, had IVs put in (which took about 5 tries...he was so dehydrated that his veins were not holding up), and he did not want to eat or drink anything. After the 1st couple of days..he started to slowly get better. He started eating and wanted his friends to come and visit him :) It was very hard on our family but we made it through with all the wonderful help from our great friends :) We did have to spend Easter in the hospital and they were so nice to have eggs delivered and Easter Bunny even made a visit but Aidan told him to go away and he did not like! We are very happy to be home and happy to have healthy kiddos...although now Philip and I are VERY sick :(

12 Months

Took Ashlyn in for her 1 year well check up and she is doing great! She is at 23 lbs now so she is filling out GREAT. She is slowly starting to reach all her milestones. She can pull herself up, stand by herself, hold a sippy cup, loves to babble and she has not quite said "Mama" but she sure does love to say "Dada" I guess that should show us "whose girl she is" ;) She is doing so good and we are love having a little girl. She is so different from the boys. She is calm and laid back....but when she throws a fit....well she THROWS a fit. She also is VERY sensitive...if you try to discipline her or raise your voice...she will stick her little lip out and start to pout and quiver and then let out a small little tearless cry. It so cute yet so pitiful. All in all she is one happy, healthy, beautiful baby girl :)

This past weekend I got to spend sometime with my best girlfriend from VA :) My girlfriend Sarah came to visit for a couple days and we had an awesome time. We spent many hours staying up late catching up with one another, we did some sight seeing, and we had an awesome Girls Night Out. The added bonus was that Sarah was in town for Ashlyn's 1st birthday :) So glad that I got to see my good friend and got to have some girl time! Can't wait for the next visit!

Happy 1st Birthday Ashlyn

Can not believe that my baby girl is already a year old. On Saturday we celebrated her 1st birthday (which was also her actual birthday) . We had a small party at the park with some close friends and we had a wonderful time. I was worried about the weather since we had some rain in the beginning of the week but Saturday was BEAUTIFUL day :) We loved watching Ashlyn tear up her birthday cake. It was a very GREAT experience!
