One thing I know I haven't talked about yet on my blog is ISR lessons. We enrolled Kaidi in the infant swim last summer in Enterprise and I am so happy that this year we have got ISR to come to Opp to the Wellness Center. This is such a fabulous program and I wish I could truly stress to EVERYONE with small children and grandchildren how great of a gift this is for them. ISR teaches survival skills. It has a 100% success rate! How could you pass up on something like that! I have sent out emails to my contacts and I have written an "announcement" that I was gonna post on here, but it was probably a little too.... truthful... I lost two of my children to drowning so this is something that I am very passionate about. I want to feel the confidence that if a circumstance happened and my living children found their way to water and fell in, that they would be able to save themselves. This program does that for me. I watched last summer as my 7 month old worked so hard to learn how to turn herself to the surface and float. It is amazing. I want to add 2 of the "truthful" things that I put in my announcement.
-Wouldn't you much rather see your child fall into a pool and save themself than to dance on a stage? I have a child who did not know these life saving skills I talk about and I will never see her dance on a stage. Why take that chance?
-If you think these lessons are too much for you to afford, try dealing with the costs of funeral expenses and hospital bills and burial plots and the everyday heartache of the fact that your child is no longer with you. ISR is worth every penny.
These instructors are trained to monitor your childs physical and psychological response in the water. It teaches them how to remain calm and react in a scary situation. They know what they are doing! If you are interested in enrolling your child or even helping out with your grandchild on these lessons, please contact Kim today at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is the best gift you can give, I promise!
Now enough about ISR.. I told you I was very passionate about it and there is so much more that I want to SCREAM at you.
I want to talk a little about Mr. Asher! He is one very active baby! He kicks and rolls all day long and I swear, by the kicks I am receiving, his foot is going to be as big as mine when he comes out! I am so ready to meet him and see what he looks like. I really want him to look like me and Kenadi. I think it will be so.. unique for Gregg to have a son and daughter that look like him and me to have a son and daughter that look like me! It is UNREAL how much Kaidi looks like Brayden. I have got to get started on things for Asher. Gregg has been, very slowly, working on his crib and I am planning on doing his bedding. I am waiting till I am finished with school so I should get started in the next month. I still don't know for sure what "look" i am going for.. it's always so hard to choose! Gregg said we were not painting so I will have to find something that will blend well with his khaki colored walls. That shouldn't be too hard! I have started picking up some more crafty things to make and actually made Kaidi 2 shirts and Asher a onsie. Here are some pics of the shirts
I made this one, but when I washed it the dark pink bled all over the yellow :(
So then I made this one and didn't wash it! It may be the only time she will get to wear it! :)
Here's one for sweet Asher! Can't wait to put it on him and take him to the beach!! :) Well maybe not take him to the beach, but at least get that vibe!
I guess now that I have added a few pics, I might as well add some more.. I still haven't uploaded any pics from Easter weekend, but here are some from the weekends before:
|Kaidi and our neighbor Banks riding around in Banks' Truck|
|At my nephew, Graysons, ballgame|
|She loved drinking my mom's diet coke|
|Sunday before Easter. Silly face!|
|Sunday School Class Easter Party/Hunt|
|She loved looking at the pond. She kept walking towards it.|
|She LOVED sliding! I have a video that I need to upload! We have a swing set kit, we just have to get the wood for it.|
|My sweet family -2!|
|She tossed eggs all over the yard.|
|Wore out after a long Sunday she crashed in front of her door and we could only get in enough to take a picture.|
|She loves putting on Gregg's shoes and trying to walk!|
|Helping Daddy wash my car. I came home from school one night and he had washed the car, cut the grass, given her a bath and had supper in the oven! That was such a blessing!! :) |
He also took pics for me because he knows how much I missed out on the car wash!!
|He said she really enjoyed this!|
|She was SOAKED!|
|They always had the best times together.|
|Looks like Kenadi is trying to blow the bubbles off her fingers.|
|Brayden thought it was so funny to spray himself!|
|My sweet brown-eyed girl. |
