We're expecting....

Well, not us per say (heck I have my hands full enough).... But this beautiful babe here is expecting...

That's right. We are going to have us a cute little baby horse running around in the next few months! I'm so excited but scared at the same time. And in all honesty, we have six already, don't really need another one. But I figure by the time the little baby is ready to be broke, then it will be time for Ms. Addy to be strapping on the chaps and pulling on the boots and learning how to be a cowgirl. That's of course, if she wants to. I hope we have a baby that looks more like momma and less like daddy. Paint horses are my favorite.

Let's see, other news going on.

Addy has been sick. Took her to the doctor yesterday because she had developed a new cry and it sounded like she was in pain. She hasn't been running in fever that I am aware of. I was guessing it had something to do with her little kidneys and the issues she has with them. Nope. Double ear infection!!! Whoo hoo... They also wanted a urine sample. Have any of you ever had to be around while they try to get a urine sample from a 4 month old.... not fun!!! We sat in the lab from 7:30 to nearly 10 waiting for her to peepee... nope, she wasn't having it. And finally, when she did, the bag came unsealed and pee went everywhere. So they send me home with another bag and a collection cup to try to get the sample. We're sitting on the couch watching tv, trying to pee, when all of a sudden she grunts and poo is everywhere.... UGH!!! Bag still in place I clean her up and sit down to wait for pee and as you would guess, when the pee came the bag became unsealed from her skin and pee was everywhere again... I give up!!! Called the doctor and she said not to worry about it but if she is still acting different or like she's in pain in the next couple of days, bring her back.

And this didn't stop here. The antibiotic they have her on makes her belly upset. We're sitting there watching American Idol last night and she is just pooting away. Of course, Becca and Blake are laughing. And I admit I was giggling too until I picked her up and there was poo all over me and her!!! Ick, Ick, Ick. This only made B & B laugh harder!!!

Her sitter says she is better today, thank goodness! Maybe we will make it through the night without an "incident".

Not much else going on. Potty training Em (my niece/foster child) right now, trying to deal with CJ (nephew/foster child) and his disruptive behavior (i.e., screaming at adults, stealing from daycare, etc.), William (nephew/foster child) has actually been on a good streak. Look for them to switch up any day now. I think they refuse to all be good at one time.

Hoping to go to Texas this weekend for my niece, Kristin, is having her 17th bday party and the kids really want to go.

I'm ready for normalcy again!

My daughter would FLIP her lid over that new baby horse!! She is obsessed with horses.

Also, I know we don't know each other, but you seem like an amazing person to take on all that you are with such an open heart. I admire you.
