They took him today for a visit to his pediatrician here, and was tested for cerebral palsy and other debilitating illnesses. Initial tests show that he is clear of the the obstacles they had originally prepared them for. And the pediatrician said he is nothing short of a miracle. He had so many people praying for him and asking God to watch over him, and he is doing great now. If this isn't a true testament to the power of God and prayer, I don't know what is.

I had many things to do today. Laundry, cleaning out a closet, cleaning, working out. But I think I am going to take a "vacation" and drown myself in my new book. I am not one to buy books very often(that's why libraries are so wonderful, although I buy a lot of books for the kids), but I splurged and bought 'Eat Pray Love' the other day. I have been on the wait list at the library FOREVER for this book and I was tired of waiting so I plunked down my moola and bought it. So today I declare as my mini vacation and I will lose myself in a book. Have a wonderful, crisp cool air, sunny, fall smelling beautiful day!

Tonight Janey and I are headed for Kindergarten Family night at her school. She will walk me through her morning routine and show me some of the things that they have been working on. I am just sad that Tom isn't here to be able to go with us. After that we are going to order her birthday cake for her party on Saturday. She wants a High School Musical party and normally I try and make their birthday cakes, but I haven't a clue on what to do for a High School Musical cake. Therefore, off to the bakery we go. If any one has any ideas for a cake, I am all ears.
I have been cleaning and doing laundry all morning and I just put Nolan down for a nap, plopped down on the couch to type this post and turned the tv on and guess what is on one of the HBO channels?!?! 'Singles'. I am so excited. I haven't seen this movie in a long ass time. I love it!! So I declare my work down for the afternoon and I am enjoying a movie. All by myself. With no kiddies around. Ah, sweet serenity.

I started having terrible back pains, but not the normal labor pains that I had with Chloe. I could talk through all of the contractions that the monitor showed I was having. I remember telling my nurse(who looked to be about 13 years old) that I was having a tremendous backache and she brushed it off.
After awhile of having these back pains, the real labor pains came shooting through my body and my O.B came into to check on me. I was almost ready to push. Wow, that was fast! Little did he or we know that Janey had decided to come 'sunny-side' up and extremely fast through the birth canal. Less than two pushes she came screaming into the world and was whisked away by doctors and nurses because the cord had been wrapped around her neck and she was blue.
Janey's 1st Birthday
Not only was she blue, but she was completely bruised from her top lip all the way up her head. With her coming out the way she had, she had bruised her entire face on my pelvic bone. She had such a traumatic time trying to meet us for the first time. Janey's 2nd Birthday
Janey's 3rd Birthday
The doctors at the hospital said the bruising on her face and head wasn't a big deal and would fade over the next few days. When we took her to our pediatrician when she was a week old, he was concerned about the bruising because she had a serious looking bruise behind her ear which *could* indicate a skull fracture. He immediately sent us to Children's Hospital for a CAT scan to make sure that there wasn't any fractures.
Janey 4 years old Fall 2006
Thankfully, the CAT scan showed that everything was normal and we were utterly relieved that she was okay, just REALLY bruised! She has been 'perfect' to us and for our family since the day she came to us 5 years ago today. We are so lucky to have this little girl in our life. She makes every day a little brighter and a little more interesting.
Janey -Birthday Girl age 5
Happy 5th Birthday Janey! We love you so much skeeter.
In other news, Tom left for a business trip today and is just outside D.C until late Wednesday night. I will be doing it all on my own here until then. I am not looking forward to it considering he is my rock and my better half. I miss him so much already and he only left this morning. Wish me luck to get through until late Weds. night!
