Slow moving...

Jocelynn has made good progress with not peeing in her diaper at night. Thursday, Saturday and Sunday she woke up dry. Friday and this morning she woke up wet. I expect a few wet nights before she gets the complete hang of it. I'm just happy she is starting to wake up dry more than wet!!!!

Merry Christmas!!!

I hope all my wonderful friends and family had a fantastic Christmas! My was great! Jocelynn was a lot of fun this year. It was very exciting to see Christmas through her eyes!

John and I didn't do much for each other this year, we exchanged a few gifts via a stocking. The most important thing is that we were together!

Jocelynn received some clothes and quite a few toys. I am really glad to have a toy room to put all of them in for her! Her favorite by far is the toy train table and accessories that my parents gave her and the Barbie house Santa gave her! I think once we get her Leapster 2 going she will have fun with that!

Christmas eve was great! We attended the Christmas Eve Church service and then headed to my Brother and Sister-in-laws house to enjoy a feast of Chinese food and decorate Christmas cookies for Santa! It was so much fun watching the girls glob on icing and sprinkles....lol

The only mood killer on Christmas is that we are on to the next cycle. Even a holiday could keep AF away.....

Two Steps in the right direction!

Both Dr. appointments today were good.

Jocelynn is healthy and right (or above) the learning curve! The Dr. was a little concerned with her weight, as I am, and have decided as a household to all eat healthier after the new year.

She is 43 1/4 inches tall(97%) and 58 pounds (also in the top percentile). She has always been in the top percentile, but her weight curve is headed further upward than her height curve. I don't want her to have to go through what I went through as a heavy child, so we will be getting that under control.

I'm also trying not to make too big a deal out of it because I don't want her to become self-conscious.

John's appointment when very well! Apparently the previous urologist didn't know what she was talking about. The Urologist we saw today (who specializes in Male Fertility) said that a varicose does effect sperm count and testosterone levels. So surgery is a go, now we just have to schedule it, he will be down for about 3 weeks and it will take 3-6 months to see any significant results. The Dr. also started him on an oral med to help his body to stop take the testosterone and converting it into Estrogen, which she believe is what is going on since he is overweight.

All in all we like this Dr. very much and we are very happy that we have been able to take two steps ahead and we feel like progress is going to be made soon! Looks like 2010 will be a great year!

On a roll!

Saturday night wasn't just a one time thing. Jocelynn has awoke in the morning the last 2 of 3 nights completely dry. Monday morning she woke up to a barely wet diapers. I think she started to pee and realized she shouldn't and stopped. The last 2 mornings she has been completely dry! I will give her tonight and Christmas eve and if she wakes up dry after those nights we will try the big girl panties for bed!

I didn't realize this would mean so much to me and that I would feel so proud of my little girl who is growing up!

Jocelynn also has her annual exam today. I will update with her 'stats' later...lol

John's appointment is today. I am nervous but really want her to give him the answers he need. He did do some research and found a herbal supplement that he has been taking and it has help a great deal with his mood swings and patience. Please just pray that she doesn't give us the run around like the last two specialist have!

As I sit her and type, my brain is going a million miles a minute. Why? I can't say, but this next week could bring some amazing information to John and I. Please keep us in your prayers!

Happy Times!

I want to wish my brother Jeremy a very happy 25th birthday! Man I feel old!

We have finally made some progress! Jocelynn is still in night time 'diapers'. It is frustrating and expensive, but I can't really knock her since it is her genes. I have really started working on getting her through the night dry. No drinks after dinner except about 3 sips at bed time, also keeping an eye on her liquid intake level during the day and making sure she goes potty right before bed.

Well, it did seem to making a difference until last night. She woke up completely dry! I was ecstatic. Also she took a 2 hour nap this afternoon and again completely dry when she woke up! I know it could be a one day thing, but it is progress!

I did praise her and made a huge deal about it. She got excited and said, I guess Santa has me on the nice list now!.....lol so cute!

I guess we will se what tomorrow morning brings!

On another note, my Mom walked into the kitchen tonight to find her getting in the fridge to get herself something to drink (which she knows is a no-no). Well, Mom was working on the grocery list, spoke to Jocelynn about what she was doing wrong, and then went back to her list. With a look of complete horror on her face she asked my Mom "are you putting me on the naughty list"? Mom and I cried we were laughing so hard. It is funny how she takes the whole naughty/nice list so seriously!

Starting to look up!

A week, how long is a week. 7 days? It seems to be much shorter than that, and yet so much happens!

Jocelynn went to visit Santa on Wednesday! She walked right up to him and started talking. She was so cute!

John has an appointment with the Male Fertility Specialist on Wednesday 12/23/2009 at 2:30pm. I am excited for this, but nervous at the same time. I just pray that she can help us! (I will update after the appointment) Jocelynn also has her annual check-up, should be interesting to see how much she has grown in the past year!

I have finally finished my Christmas shopping and all the presents that had to be shipped are, and most are in the recipients hands! It is a great feeling!

Friday is Christmas!!!!! It seems so crazy that this year has gone by so fast. 2010 is in less than 2 weeks! We are praying it is a wonderful year for us!

I am also looking forward to next week because I only have to work 2 days, then I have 5 day off to enjoy myself and family time!!! A much needed break!

So far the holidays season has been more hectic for me this year than last. I think it is because I am working outside the house 30 hours a week. I miss being home with Jocelynn all day, but I also enjoy the adult conversation that comes with work. Hopefully soon, I will be able to cut my hours back to 2 days a week instead of 4!

Happy 4th Birthday Jocelynn!!!!

My baby is 4 years old......how can this be? Why does time have to go so fast. It feels like yesterday I was in the hospital holding my newborn!

He birthday fell on a Saturday this year, so she was able to have her party and celebrate on her special day! It was a semi-small party with family and friends and she had a blast playing with "her girls" as she told me! She received her Barbies and a horse. Play Doh which she wanted and a new Comforter with Curtains and even a travel bed set for when we go to Delaware! She was a tired little girl, but a happy little girl!!!!

The fun project with foam pieces!

Let it Snow!!!!!! 2009-2010

We have the first snow of the 2009-2010 winter season! I love it! The first words out of Jocelynn's mouth when we got up this morning was, "can we go out and play in the snow?" LOL. I love the innocence of a child!

The pine tree in our yard!
We will be going to get our Christmas tree this afternoon! I love that fact that there is snow on the ground! It is truly beginning to look and feel a lot like Christmas!!

The past week has been interesting! Busy as usual, but manageable. We have slowly started decorating inside and outside and I hope we will be finished this week!

Jocelynn's birthday in Saturday! We have a party planned and hopefully we will be going to visit Santa on Sunday! Jocelynn has asked a couple of time, so I guess there is no way getting out of it!

I love my Dad and Brother's. This weekend they have been on the roof putting new shingles down. It had started to leak in our bedroom, and the roof is at least 18 years old, so it was time! Even after the snow last night they were up their this morning to finish it!

Working Hard!!!!!

LOL! Love My Brothers!!!!!

Now Santa will have a nice place to land on Christmas Eve....lol
