This past weekend was so tough for me. I have been thinking alot about my Father & some other people that have passed away. I miss my Dad so much. We were really close & I could talk to him about anything. I guess the weekend being Memorial Day when people go to the graves to plant flowers & visit really got to me. I live in Nevada & I just can't do that anymore. My sister & brother do it now cause it used to always be my job. My brother told me something really neat that they did at my Dad's this year was put those solar lights that you can put in flower beds or along walkways. How cool , I can't wait til whenever I go back home to visit I bet it will look so AWESOME !!!!!
I have some close friends that have passed away & just the weekend gets to me. I'm doing better & I ran across this saying even though some of the people that passed away weren't old , it still seems like God takes the best. I bet to his garden is so beautiful. I just thought this was so neat & I just wanted to share it.


Well yesterday my Little Miss Carly was 4 weeks old. So hard to believe that it's been that long. Seems like just yesterday I was pregnant & waiting for her to come out. She is growing & changing everyday so much. I just love being a Mommy every child is so special in there own little way. This is the first time in my life that I haven't worked so w / Carly I'm seeing things that I probably wouldn't have seen if I had a job. Well that's all for now HUGS !!!!!

Happy Memorial Day to all. This day means so much to me. It's more than just parades & swimming & picnics. It's a day to remember those who have served for our country & the ones that still are. I can remember as a child going to parades & seeing my Grandpa be in the parade for serving in World War I. He was one of few left in the county I'm from in Ohio. After he passed away I was older & in the parades myself w/ the school. It still was a day that meant alot to me for the right reasons. Also it was a time to go to the graveyard & plant flowers & remember those who died. Now that I live in Nevada it's not so easy to go to the graveyard & plant things or go just to visit. My Father died in 1986 & I was only 21. I miss him so much, he was such a awesome father. Again Happy Memorial Day !!!!!!!

She is already sleeping though the nite pretty good. Goes to bed at 10 or so & gets up anytime after 4 am or so. The lastest she has got up is 6 am.

Wow yesterday my Little Miss Carly was 2 weeks already. So hard to believe & she has changed so much. It's so unreal how fast they grow. I guess now that I'm a stay-at-home MOMMY I can see it more. It's also neat that a child has so much love for you. While we are on the subject of love & kids. This is so AWESOME my Jennifer who is 5yrs old woke up on Mother's Day & it was early prolly like 6am or so. I was laying on our loveseat after putting Carly back to sleep around 4 am. Well at about 6:30 am I woke up & looked on the floor right beside the loveseat was Jennifer & her dolls. She woke & said HAPPY MOTHER"S DAY MOMMY !!!!! That made my day right there & it didn't take any money in the world. I was surprised she didn't have to be reminded. Anyway Kids are a AWESOME joy to have you never know what they are going to do next. I can be having the worst day & just a smile or something one of them says makes me think of how proud I am to be a MOTHER.

Thanx for all the wishes & that. It was a trip & a half. I went to the Doc Appt & was 4 cm & she told me , I would probably go Wed nite or Thurs. I came home at 10am gave the girls a bath there wasn't any school that day.I got there clothes all ready for school the next 2 days. I did one load of clothes & at 12:30 I started having some light contractions. By 2:30 they were very hard & I almost felt like pushing. I got nervous cause it was just me & the 3 kids. I called my hubby & told him to come home fast. We left the kids at the neighbors & off we went. Got to the hospital at 3:20 & they got me all hooked up. The lady tried to tell me my contractions weren't that bad. I was laying there & finally she checked me & I was a 6cm & a full bag. So how they finally decide to admit me, WOW !!!!!! I had to walk down a big hallway & get in bed. By the time they did all that another nurse checked me it's 4:50 or so. I was 8cm & ready & no Dr yet. I told them that I go really fast once I start & well I guess no one believed me. My hubby thought he was going to deliver her. At 5:30 my Dr shows up & can't believe it was going down so fast. Well she checked me & told me if I wanted to push I could & I did a couple times & water broke & they didn't have the bed torn apart yet & baby was on her way. I had her at 6pm & the nurse & my hubby had to help with my legs cause they didn't have the bed ready but I tried to tell them. Anyway things went great & Carly was perfect. She even looked at me & smiled. The nurses talked all nite at how fast it all happened. Anyway they sent me home yesterday at 11:30 am & baby Carly wasn't even a day old yet. I was happy to be here. But what a story I just had to share. Just glad I left home when I did. Or the kids day off of school might have been delivering there sister, LOL. It's funny now but not at the time. Thanx again for being there 4 me. Caroline

Wow it's been a while since I have been on here. Well our new daughter came to join us after all the waiting & waiting. She was only 2 days late but she made a very fast birth. Her name is Carly Lorraine Croley. Carly was my choice I always loved that name & my Daddy used to call me that for short as I was growing up. Her middle name is after my husband's mother. She weighed 8 lbs & 12 ozs. She was 20 inches long & born at 6 p.m. It was a very fast delivery & I'm so glad she is here. She is a very good baby & we all love her so much.
