Cowabunga Dudes! Happy Birthday Rylan!!!

Happy Birthday to my Rylan! He turned 3 on the 18th of this month! He has been into Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for a really long time now. He loves Raphael because his color is red. We were supposed to have his birthday party last weekend, but Spencer got sick and we were in the hospital so we postponed it until today. He was super excited and he had a lot of fun. BIG thanks again to my sisters Kalu and Kashia. I really do not know what I would do without them! They helped me I assisted them as they made eggrolls, papaya salad, meat balls, and chicken. If it weren't for them I would not have had enough time to do everything that I wanted to!

As for Ry's cake, we ordered it from Cupcake Cravings. They did an awesome job! Thanks so much for all those who came! We had a really good time. :) and I know that Ry did too!

Yum! I am so going to miss this in the Caribbeans! 

Papaya salad, meatballs, and Kalu's yummy peanut sauce.  

Kashia and my ever so famous cupcakes! So good!

Sorry, I didn't know how to turn it. 
Rylan's cupcake cake! Pretty sweet!

 He's so happy! I love that smile. 

Ry loved it! 

My decorations for Ry's party! Not to shabby. 

 Daddy and his boys! Spencer was napping.


Happy Birthday Ry! We love you so much! :)

I'm too busy

It's lunch time and I asked him to eat his Mac n cheese. He claimed he was too busy and proceeded to cry. Lol...this kid.

Beacause I asked him to be quiet

Here Rylan is crying because he was being being a "wild thing" and I asked him to use his quiet voice. As you can see, he wasn't very happy about that.

Hooray dady's home....and Hospital Deja Vu

So remember about 4 years ago when my Nenji was almost 3 months old and was hospitalized? And I wrote a whole blog about what happened? Well, my poor little Spencer was also hospitalized this past weekend. He didn't have Kawasaki Syndrome like Nenji, but it was still pretty bad. I've come to realize and accept that little babies will get sick...ESPECIALLY if their older brothers are Nenji and Rylan because they can't keep their little kisses, hands, sneezes and coughs away from Spencer! Since Spencer has been born he has gotten sick 4 times already! That averages about once a month. Grr! Every time he has gotten sick, he has had a fever, a nasty little cough, and some wheezing. Every time we've gone in to see the Doctor, it's just the same thing...Tylenol to keep him comfortable and his inhaler every 4 hours (I know sad, but he probably has asthma cause his dad does).

This time, Spencer got sick the night before his dad came home. He had a really high fever. In the morning he still wasn't feeling well so I knew we couldn't go to pick Fi Dan up from San Francisco airport! I was so bummed, I had been waiting 4 months for this very moment. And I had played it in my head over and over again how we were going to run to each other like in the movies. ;) So my dad and the boys ended up going instead. I took little Spencer to the Doctor and they just suggested the same thing. (This was Wednesday).

The next day was Thursday, which was Ry's birthday. We couldn't do much because Spencer was still super sick and had a really high fever still. We just had the missionaries over and did a little celebration for Ry's birthday, and we promised him that we would take him to Chuckee Cheese tomorrow.

Friday morning rolls around and my little peanut was still in pretty bad shape, plus I noticed he was working really hard to breath. To shorten the story up we ended up going to the ER twice. The second time they transferred us over to the Pediatric Ward where we stayed for 4 days and little Spencer was diagnosed with Bronchiolitis . Now he's almost all better. We had a follow up appointment yesterday and then another one this coming  Monday...........and then next Wednesday night (May 1st) we're off to the Caribbean! And I still have Ry's birthday part to execute tomorrow and a ton of packing to do!

We are so happy that daddy is home now, but I feel soooo bad because his two week vacation has turned into some what of a nightmare. None the less, I am so happy my little family is back together.  I am also just so grateful that Heavenly Father heard our prayers and that my little Spencer is back home! :)

Reasons Why My Ry-Bug Cries

Recently I read about a dad who took pictures of his son every time he cried and then labeled the pictures explaining why he cried. I thought it was brilliant! I laughed so hard because I could totally relate to that dad. Rylan has a silly sense of humor and it carries over to reasons why he cries. So instead of wanting to cry myself every time Ry throws a tantrum, I've been taking pictures of my Ry and writing down why he cries. Some of the reasons are hilarious! And it really helps me get through the day. Here are just a few reasons why Rylan cries.

We got McDonalds for breakfast...he didn't like it that his Sausage Mcbiscuit
 came with a biscuit ...AND it didn't come with a toy. 

 I asked him to finish his he ran around the kitchen screaming and crying.

He just ate some candy and wanted me to brush his teeth before they turned black....
but I was in the middle of feeding and changing Spencer. 

 I don't even remember why he was crying.

He wanted to watch youtube instead of a Disney movie. 

Someday I'm sure Rylan will be mad at me for posting up these pictures, but at least it will be well documented and if his humor is anything like mine, he'll appreciate it and even have a good laugh. :)
