Hives update

I am proud to say that the hives are doing a lot better! I was able to take a wonderful bubble bath with my favorite bubble bath (picutred-- Thymes lavender yum!) for the first time in almost three years!  I am still too nervous to go hot tubbing.  Last time I got a pedicure it gave me a few hives still.  The hot water seems to bring them out.

My dermatologist told me that there is new research that shows that a significant number of chronic hives sufferers have a Vitamin D deficiency.  There have been reports that if the Vitamin D levels are increased that the hives will improve.  I got tested, and wouldn't you know it, my levels are low.  So, I am starting on Vitamin D supplements ASAP to see if it helps.  I will cross my fingers! :)

Visiting Cecily and Beckett

 Beckett was playing Peek A Boo during lunch! Cecily and I tried out a new sushi place.  I can't even remember the name, but it wasn't the best place we have ever been too.  Oh, well.

 Beckett tried on a coat, but he wouldn't stay still for long enough to get a good picture!
 We found the cutest little Mickey Mouse rocking chair that was just Beckett's size! He loved it! Too bad it was $50. 
 We took Beckett to Gardner Village to look at all the witches.  He learned how to say witch! It was so cute! It was funny because it sounded more like "wish".  He loved to look at the witches and point at them, but he did not want to touch them or get near them! We tried to sit him on this bench and he was not too happy! So Cecily sat on the bench with him, and she put him on the witch's lap.  He was trying to get away as fast as he could!
 He did have fun walking all over the place though.

And of course, he loved the little pond, he wanted to go swimming, but it was a little cold for that. :)

Happy first Birthday Alexis and Max!

Max had a cool guitar cake!
Alexis had a delicious carrot cake! Love the butterflies!

Alexis was happy with her presents :)

Max loved his cake!
Alexis playing on Gigi's pool
Lol. Alexis' face is so funny!
Beckett had tons of fun in the pool with the balls! It just doesn't look that way from this picture...
Where did Max go?
He was hiding under the birthday quilt that I made for him!

Alexis loved her birthday quilt too!

Yay! It was a great party, and I was happy that I could make it! I love you Alexis and Max!!!!

Look who I got to spend the day with!

Deserae, Addam, Cecily, Ryan, Eric, and Joanna went to Blue Fish for a sushi lunch, and then to Wheeler Farm to look at the animals! I didn't get too many pictures, but the boys had a lot of fun! :)

Beckett's second hair cut!

I went over to visit Cecily and Beckett yesterday.  Beckett can even say my name! Well, almost.  He calls me Des or Deser sometimes.  Deser is so cute! Lol.

 This is the before picture.

This is Beckett wearing Ryan's first pair of shoes!

We had to wash all the extra hair off of Beckett after his hair cut! I couldn't get any pics of the haircut because he didn't like it very much, so I had to hold him while Cecily cut his hair.

This is the after pic.  He almost looks bald, but he isn't, his hair is just so light! Anyway, I had a fun visit!

Beckett's First Birthday

I am a little behind with my blogging, but here are some pics of Beckett's first birthday party.  All the babies had tons of fun! And Beckett liked the quilt that I made for him! :)

I haven't had anything too exciting happening lately, So here are some pics of my nephew Beckett. He is almost one (his birthday is in less than a month!).

This is his first haircut.  I can't believe how good he was.  I think he was just so curious about what was going on!

What a cutie!

Silly Beckett, sleeping with his bum in the air!

I am looking forward to seeing everyone for Beckett's birthday party! It should be a lot of fun! I hope that I get to see Max and Alexis soon too, it is sad living far away and not getting to see them all the time! :)

Fun at the Aquarium!

Cecily, Beckett, Jessica, Jordyn, and I went to the Living Planet Aquarium in Sandy today! It was extra fun because they have a new penguin exhibit that was only three days old! We all had a lot of fun!

Here is one of the eleven penguins that are on exhibit.

Cecily, Jessica, and the babies having fun!

Jordyn liked the fish for the most part... Some of the scared her a little bit.

Eek! A Giant Frog!

Beckett liked to look at the fish too!

They had a cute little canoe to take pictures in!

Beckett and Jordyn hanging out together!

It was a good time! We will have to do it again!

It is almost Easter!

Beckett is getting ready for Easter!

He is also getting ready to go swimming!

It is still too cold to go outside without a jacket though!

I went and spent the night at Cecily's house last night. It was fun to see Cecily, Ryan, Beckett, and my mom!
