Strain Family Update

SO a little update on the family, Miss Miah is an aspiring beautician, she got the scissors down awhile back and cut a chunk out of her bangs and two big chunks out of the back the before and after are below.I was really disappointed I am not very happy about her boy hair cut.

Before she cut her hair

after she cut it..


Miss Ellie is sporting two new teeth on the bottom, rolling all over the place , really trying to sit up and saying da da da .. little stinker.. but an old wives tale says that what ever a little one says first as to momma or daddy that is the gender of the next baby . SO hopfully it is right. Gus deserves a little brother some day.we are still waiting on the results of her blood work that was sent of a few weeks back. you can read about her conditon HERE.

Ellie playing in the floor


And while we are speaking of mr. Gus. he is sick, his doctor thinks he has whooping cough on top of already having croup and bronchitis so we are waiting on his test results but he is allergic to the whooping cough vaccine the first time he got it he ended up in the e.r with a sever allergic reaction.SO if the test comes back positive who knows what is next.

here is a pic of MR . Handsome


so when we get the test results back from miss ellie and mr gus i will post them .. hope all is well with ya'll.

ok ppl we live in the country and in the country there are all kinds of bugs and they get on my window sills and die and they are GROSS to clean up SO.. i put a piece of clear contact paper cut to the size of the inside of my window seal and when it looks gross i just simply take a garbage bag to the window and peel it up and toss it.. works great.. sometimes i do wipe it off but hey it works. and i dont have to touch dead bugs..

Making your home sing Mondays

Well things are getting done around the house but my heart is NOT singing.. IVe been struggling all week with some pretty heavy stuff. The tile laying, shower installing and new vanity for the bathroom is on hold, We also decided to move the extra stuff from the girls room that we were using for storage in to my sewing room now the storage room and to NOT rip up the carpet and paint the walls just yet but to go ahead and move the girls in to it the way it is. SO this weekend I reorganized my sewing room to make room for our extra stuff, we are goin to move the hubby's dresser out of the girls room in to our room and put up the crib FINALLY .. she is almost seven months old and move miah's toddler bed and her toys in to the room and then rearrange gus's room. so there is significant progress on the house.. but my heart is broken.. We took our six month old for her six month check up and her head was measuring a little on the small side so the doctor wanted a MRI done. we got the results back and she has been diagnosed with Microcephaly. you can Google it if you want more info . Basically her brain is smaller than it is supposed to be and it can cause SIGNIFICANT DELAYS. SO FAR.. she is hitting her milestones but it is a hurry up and wait game and I AM NOT a patient person..so hope you all are having a HAPPY MONDAY and read here for more mondays

Please Pray for MISS ELLIE!!!

SO we had a MRI done and low and behold it is been determined she has something called Mircrocephaly. It is a conditon where the brain in her case the frontal, temperal and periatal lobes are much smaller than they should be. the other parts are of normal size. you can google it if you want more info ..right now im still in shock and trying to process it all myself.. She is developemental where she should be for a 5-6month old.. she was a preemie so she is a littel behind but notmuch.. Im tired and stressed to im off to bed .. here is a pic of my sweet little Ellie..

They are now throw up haphazardly in to their unfinished new home. It is where they are supposed to be when it gets completed. We have SEVERAL unfinished home renovation projects goin on right now and everything is out of place and pretty much driving me crazy!!!!

On my mind:
finishing this bathroom remodel


Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses: This is for my father in law and his HARLOT!!!
1 Corinthians 6:12-20. 
 12"Everything is permissible for me"—but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible for me"—but I will not be mastered by anything. 13"Food for the stomach and the stomach for food"—but God will destroy them both. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. 15Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! 16Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh."[b] 17But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.  18Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. 19Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

We are Still working on our bathroom, The water is back on Thank GOD!! but we are still with out a door, wall that divides the bathroom from the hall way and the wall at the end of the tub that hides the water heater and linen closet. The jacuzzi tub how ever does work and is GREAT!! we also have NO sink yet , no tile or shower head yet.. I hope maybe this weekend we will be able to finish the wall and install the tile and the sink and shower.. I did the "redneck thing" and hung a sheet up so we have some form of privacy while in the bathroom. Since there is NO wall. So all that stuff that was In the bathroom is now in what will be the girls room but i was using as a playroom, part is blocked off by doors waiting to be painted and put in. the other part was over flow for toys since miah and Gus are sharing a room until we get her and Ellie's room done. Miss Ellie is still sleeping in our room but IS sleeping thru the night.. YAY!! well she is up at around six am .. but so am i putting Gus on the bus for school so  i consider it all night. In two weeks miss miah can go back to her preschool program and then i will only have miss Ellie home. I am thinking of getting a part time job . I wont know what to do with only one immobile child at home. The house will stay SO much cleaner cause i will have NO one home till around 3 ish to mess it up..So I need to organize the playroom so the toys are usable and the stuff from the bathroom is put up so the kids are safe, and a good ole once over the whole house.It is SO unorganized since we started this remodel.. things are out of place. The place i had for my sheets and towels was over the utility en-clove in the hall but that was eliminated to move the wall out for the new tub. So they are piled up in the soon to be new linen closet but has no shelves yet. SO maybe by tuesday my home will be singing.. Have a HAPPY MONDAY!!!
