Random news, thoughts and pictures

Would you love her in a boat? Would you love her in her coat?

These two pictures are from a day at Discovery Gateway. She LOVED playing in the water.
That is her friend and neighbor Parker. Thanks Torrie for the fun day!

Trying to get a shot of the pigtails.

She is chewing on a little toothbrush thing that you put on your finger to brush a baby's teeth. Have you seen those? She loves is. Don't worry, I watch her so she won't choke on it.
I love Felicity's little naked bum, but I am sick of looking at the same ol' post on our blog. Sorry for being such a slacker. The snowy mountain header is beautiful, but I am sick of winter at the moment. Bring on the sun! I wouldn't mind some sand and some waves, but we don't have any of that around here.
So, what's new with us? Kurt was just called to be the Elder's Quorum President in our ward. That's pretty exciting and I am proud of him. I know he is worthy and willing and will do a great job caring for the Elders and their families. I will try my best to be helpful and supportive.
Felicity has been swimming at the Rec Center a couple of times. She is kind of apprehensive but likes it. I am trying to get her ready for the summer. Maybe she could be water wing ready... I am trying to swim some laps too to get ready for the best season of the year.

As some of you know, I have not been feeling well for the past 8 months or so. After seeing a lot of doctors I am finally diagnosed. I have Scleroderma and Trigeminal Neuralgia. Oh, you don't know what those are? Neither did I. Scleroderma-auto immune disease with some skin symptoms (derma..) and (for me at least) inflammation and joint pain. Trigeminal Neuralgia-unexplained nerve pain (and numbness) in the jaw/face area. The left half of my face up to my check bone has been numb for the past 8 months. The left side of my tongue and teeth too. I have had some crazy pain that has made it hard to eat and talk at times. BUT-now I am pretty well medicated and things are under control. This is, of course, a very non-emotional explanation of what has been going on. In truth, it has been a very difficult time for me. It really makes me look forward to the Resurrection when my body will be perfect again.

Moving on, Felicity is a crazy, stubborn little thing. Don't know where she got that. She is walking like a pro and always goes to the door and wants to go outside. Does she want to swing, go down the slide? No. She just wants to walk without help. It's crazy that I have a child who is old enough to walk around outside, fall down and get scrapes. She hates having her hair done and throws a fit. She loves toothbrushes and if I really need her to leave me alone for a few minutes I give her my (vibrating) toothbrush and let her soothe her gums.

I went to the grocery store today in pajamas. I wasn't proud. Kurt won't even wear pj pants to take out the garbage and he is embarrassed for me today. I had to print some things at my mom's house and then I remembered I needed treats for church tomorrow. In plaid pj pants, a big baggy sweatshirt, uggs and a beanie I went straight to the candy aisle, didn't look anyone in the eye and did the self check out. I successfully didn't see anyone I knew. I was just praying that Stacy and Clinton wouldn't see me.
Hope that my ramblings are better than seeing the same naked bum at the top of my blog. Love you all friends!
