A Big Update (Length Wise)

Lots of things to update on so I hope you will just hang on tight cause it's a long one!!!!


I'm so excited that my baby sister, Stacey is going to have a BABY!!!! YAY! We are all so excited!! This will be her first baby and I will say that it's about time! We have all been waiting for her to have a baby. So congratulations to my baby sis and we are praying her pregnancy goes by without any complications!! And I think she is having a girl because I keep saying "she"!! I guess we will see if I'm right or wrong in a few months. I will keep you posted.


My older sister, Lisa is still waiting on the results from her spinal tap. She is now on medical leave from work since her doctor put some really strict restrictions on her and her job said they couldn't accommodate her with those restrictions. Hopefully she will start getting her treatments and she will be able to go back to work by October 1st!! So if you will keep her in your prayers that would be great.


Also, the little girl that I asked for prayers for is now home but she is still struggling. Her family is struggling to give her some quality of life while she is healing from all the surgeries she has had in the last few months. Her liver is not functioning well and they are waiting on news of a medication that will make a big impact on her liver. Please keep Ashley Adams and her family in your prayers.

And Finally:

Well, I guess I need to update on what's been going on around MeMe's lately.....
On the grandbaby note, Harrison, Tuff and Ada are growing way to fast!! I cannot believe how fast time goes.




Harrison is now 21 months old and is saying all kinds of words! Well all kinds of words EXCEPT MeMe!!! Now how hard can that be???? I have worked with him from day one on saying MeMe but he always says Mama!!! Go figure! But he does love his MeMe. I love when he comes in every morning and runs straight to me to pick him up and he lays his head on my shoulder and says "aweee"!!! It makes me tear up to just think about it. We are so lucky to have this little person in our lives. And I like to think that he is just as lucky. I sure do love him. Harrison is such a busy little boy but he also loves to be cuddled! He is now saying, Papa all the time, I ask him to say Nana when she was over yesterday and he says "Nana"!! Just like he's been saying it forever!! I guess he will say MeMe when he's ready. He and Tuff had a nasty virus a few weeks ago and he was the sickest I have seen him. His fever got up to 103 while he was here and it scared me to death! The doctor says it was viral. Well I have never heard of a viral infection that causes blisters in the back of the throat. I tell you, those boys were miserable!


Tuff is now almost 14 months old and he is a little lover!!! He loves to love on Ada! He's not real cuddly and he can be quite stingy with his kisses but he will walk by Ada all day and lean over to kiss her. He learned to throw a ball a while back and now he wants to throw everything! He and Harrison have learned to turn our tv on and off and this goes on off and on all day...Drives me nuts!!! Now Tuff is definetely a Papa's boy. He follows him around all day and Papa has been taking him on a few little outings and Tuff is lovin it! Tuff has been going to our High School football games to watch his cousin play and I think he is really lovin that!


Ada is 3 1/2 months old and she is our little Butter Bean! I started calling her that because she is such a chubby little girl and when she smiles her face looks like a fat little butter bean! She is now smiling all the time, holding her head up so good and she likes to be sitting straight up!!! No more holding her like a baby! Ada hasn't rolled over yet and I'm pretty sure that is due to her being so chunky. Her laugh is so cute and I right now I would have to say she is a MeMe's girl! Papa says that will change since she is now with us in the mornings when he is here so we will see! She has been fighting ear infections and has now completed her 3rd antibiotic! She will go back today to see if they have cleared completely up. She has been eating 6 ozs. and acts like she is starving in 3 hours. So I gave her 7 ozs and she ate that right up. She spits up all the time!! I mean from the time she eats right up until her next feeding! The doctor says some babies are just spit up babies!! You would think with all the technology there is these days they could find something to help. She weighed 15 pounds at 15 oz.


UPDATE: Ada’s left ear is still no better than 6 weeks ago!! Now on to her 4TH antibiotic! If it doesn’t clear up after this round of meds then it’s off to an ENT.  I personally think this has been going on way too long!! I just hope there will be no damage in her ear.


  1. Harrison, Tuff, and Ada are all SO cute!

  2. Will keep you and your family in our prayers. All of your grand babies are so cute. They are growing so fast. Hope you all have a good week.
