1. Today was a lazy day, but isn't that what Sundays are for?

2. Our great friends Amandalyn and Joey came to visit last night. We went out for our traditional dinner, The Wok About Grill. We even managed to force down some ice cream...force being more for Joey and Jr :)

3. We took Paxton to play at the park this evening...it was still beautiful out at 5:00. I am still amazed how at Paxton has turned into such a little boy! I'm afraid though that one of these days he's going to get us into trouble. In more ways than one...

4. While we're playing at the park Paxton wants us to chase him, so instead of yelling, "come get me" he yells, (very LOUD) "DADDY COME BEAT ME UP" Lol...really Pax?

5. That's almost as bad as yesterday...after we went shopping at Costco with my mom we came home and I was getting Paxton ready for his nap. I told him I was tired and might take a nap with him...Paxton then asks, "why are you tired momma, did daddy beat you up?" Yikes...

6. All the beating up started yesterday morning when Enrique was chasing Pax around the house telling him, I'm gonna get you.

7. My mom came to Wenatchee to run a few errands so we met up for breakfast...Thanks mom. I always love visiting with you! Then Paxton and I joined her for a trip to Costco. I don't remember the last time it was that busy, it almost seemed like Christmas season, if not worse!

8. Paxton's been asking when it's going to be his birthday...oh man! Soon I guess, sooner than I want.

9. I'm hoping to do a few more senior shoots this summer, so if you know any Junior's-soon-to-be-Seniors send them my way!

10. Oh, I've been making some big changes over at my "other" blog. You'll definitely need to check it out! I like it so much that I'm thinking I might just combine both blogs into one...since they both are a part of my life! I'm really hoping that I'll be able to get more "clients" to post about!

and because this is a photo blog...here are a few images from our time at the park today. All taken with my iPhone.

No Word Friday

Today I took this picture...

At first glancec I almost deleted it. Then I re-looked at it and fell in LOVE, this picture resembles so much, but mainly to me it represents our memories. Our time of visiting the park will soon be over, soon Paxton will be off to school, and I'll be working (hopefully.) We'll always have the memories, but soon that is all we'll have! So for that reason I'm holding onto this picture and will treasure it, dearly.forever.

1. I realized that I never made a TOT or TOW so now we'll have a TOF!

2. The girls came over this morning...they don't have school today and both Abe and Kelly are working so they came here. Pax loves when they come, although sometimes they probably don't think so. He doesn't like sharing me :)

3. Pax woke up almost as soon as they got here, when they came into his room he said, "my girls are here." I like how they are his, and they are the girls. He also refers to them as his cuzzies quite often. He's also figured out which one is which, and usually never mixes them up.

4. The older Paxton is getting, the more of the girls I see in him. He even has their pack-rat qualities. I remember when I used to pick up the girls, they usually had to have a bag full of various things...or they would always be packing something in a sack to play with. Pax is the same, we can't leave the house without a bag-full of something.

5. This week I did clinical observations at the clinic and the hospital. I'm really excited to start clinical rotation now. I was able to meet all the people I'll be working with at the hospital, which was nice. The first 6 months of rotations I'll spend at the hospital, and the last 4 months will be at Community Health. Working at the hospital will be way different than the clinic, but I'm glad I'll get to experience both. At the hospital most of the patients are in-patients so they'll need their x-rays taken either in their room, or we'll have to get them in a wheel-chair or bring them down in their beds. At the clinic the patients should all be fairly mobile so they'll be able to walk in and out of the room by themselves.

6. I really wish that miss Cindy lived a little closer. In order for me to be anywhere by 8 I need to leave the house no later than 7:15. It usually takes me 10-15 minutes to drive to their house and then another 10-15 minutes to get where ever it is I'm going. If traffic is bad, it can take me 20 minutes to get from one part of town to the next! Wenatchee is crazy-busy in the mornings!

7. The other night Paxton and I were talking, and I told him that he's Mexican. He said, "no I'm not Mexican, I'm Paxton." Then I tried explaining that being Mexican isn't a name it's what Paxton is, just like his daddy. So then later when I told him again he said, "no I'm not Mexican, Daddy is a Mexican." The way he said it was so funny. Junior and I laughed so hard, for a long time!

8. We just got back from the Wenatchee library. The girls and Pax had fun. It's actually a really nice Library. They have their own floor just for kids with lots of tables, building blocks, chalk tables, and a reading area where the kids sit on steps. We had a good time!

9. Paxton is teaching Isabelle how to vacuum. He's telling her, "like this, over here, oh here, right there, oops here's some." She'll be a pro by the time she leaves. :)

10. I've been showing Paxton pictures of family and friends lately and he loves it. He really loves seeing Addelynn's pictures, he gets so excited and says, "that's my friend Addelynn." He told me the other night she was his best friend. I told him that was good because her mom, Amy, is my best friend. Paxton looked at me very serious and said, "no she's not, I'm your best friend." I love him.

I meant to mention that when I took Paxton to the doctor yesterday that he weighed in at 30lbs! At his 2 year checkup he weighed 26lbs, so in the last 10 months he's gained 4lbs....woo-hoo. Actually I don't think that is very much for his age.

His cousin Kendry is going in for his 9 month check up on Monday. I was curious what Paxton's weight and height were so I checked and at 9 months he weighed 17.4lbs and was 28.25" tall. That put him above the 50 percentile for height and below the 50 percentile for weight. My guess is that Kendry will probably beat those numbers by leaps and bounds! :)

I spoke with his doctor today about his ear and he recommended that I stop the antibiotics if Paxton is no longer complaining of pain.

Ten on Wednesday

1. I feel like I'm working as computer tech. these days. I've had so much computer trouble, it's crazy. I think the most frustrating part is that since my computer sort-of-crashed I wasn't able to uninstall Photoshop correctly, so now it's not wanting to let me run it because the user-key is still activated. Ugh, I've tried everything...I'm actually in the process of my last try now. Please let it work...

2. We got a new toilet this week...why you might ask. Most of you know that Enrique and I have the worst-weirdest-craziest-strange-LUCK ever. I swear we do, Enrique is really bad, but I have weird luck too. How it happened: Paxton went to the bathroom and held down the handle too long so the toilet wasn't re-filling with water so I started to take of the lid to the tank. Paxton started grabbing for it so I tried to move him and dropped the lid. It fell down onto the bottom part of the toilet landing on the part between the toilet-bowl and the tank and chipped off a big chunk of the toilet. Water started spraying EVERYWHERE, I reached down to turn the water off but turned it the wrong way first, finally I got it shut off. Then I had to clean up all the water...not a good start to the day.

3. Now we have an energy efficient toilet, the kind that barley uses any water. Most of the time I go back to the toilet to re flush it because it always sounds like it didn't flush completely the first time.

4. I picked Paxton up early yesterday from Miss Cindy's because he was crying complaining that his ear hurt. After I picked him up we took him to the Dr. just in case. Before we went in I asked him if he put anything in his ear and he told me, "yes mommy, I'm sorry I put a wrench in my ear." Sometimes he just says things like that though so I figured I should have the doctor take a look anyways. She tried, but he resisted (a little) so she just figured that since he's had a cold that he probably has an ear infection so she wrote him a prescription. I'm a little hesitant to continue giving him the medicine since he hasn't complained again about his ear hurting. We weren't able to see his regular pediatrician so I think I'll give him a call today.

5. So did the groundhog see his shadow or what? I never did hear, but I am most definitely ready for Spring.

6. It is so gloomy and dark today. Paxton actually asked where the sun was.

7. I have a new craft/project I really want to try. I'm thinking that maybe Friday I'll give it a go, if it turns out I'll post here.

8. Amy might be coming to stay in the Spring a while with her dad and I'm so excited! Paxton and Adde are so much a like. I love watching them play. This time though we'll pack a sippy-cup for Adde that is exactly the same as Paxton because for some reason every time they've played together they always fight over his cup because Adde wants it too. :) I think it's so cute!

9. You know that for about 6 months of this last year I thought I was 26. TeeHee. I couldn't remember if I was 25 or 26 so I asked Enrique and he told me I was 26 (along with a comment about how could I not know) so when ever people asked I told them I was 26...until someone corrected me. Sheesh. This year I will turn 26 though. Yesterday someone guessed that I was 22....that's pretty exciting!

10. Another note...I HATE Vista. I know that's a strong word, but I do. Enrique's computer has it and I really just can not get the hang of it. It has the strangest way of saving files. Maybe it's because I'm used to XP, but hopefully by the next time we buy a computer they'll have XP back.

and since no post is as exciting without any pictures here you go....

Paxton got a new toy, it's bigger than we thought it would be. It's in his room for now, but I think it will soon be moving somewhere else. Either to Grandmas :) or to storage. It's just too big.
