Little smidge of this and that

First of all, thank you for following my new blog.  I started a new one for personal reasons, i.e. privacy. 

Really quick because right now Riley is sleeping and Viktor is talking in his crib.  He only gets his pacifiers when he is in his crib, so now he points to the stairs and acts sleepy so that I will bring him upstairs and put him in his crib.  He spends about twenty minutes sucking on his pacifiers and then decides he has had enough and then cries to get out.  I like to call it "Getting his fix" lol..........

I wanted to show you a craft I made from pinterest.   Well I made a few and will be posting pictures, pros and cons, and my unprofessional opinion.    This tutorial was found here.....  I loved this tutorial.  I am in love with these awesome, cool looking flowers.  And I love them in this vase.  I did exactly what she said to.  This vase is antique and has meaning to me.   My deceased grandfather bought it for my grandmother when they were younger.   I definitely recommend this tutorial if you like the flowers. 

Now that I wrote all that without any kids screaming in my earhole or slamming my laptop down  any sweet interruptions...I think I might get away with an actual post. 

Viktor and Riley are doing good.  Viktor will be 21 months and Riley will be 4 months.  Can you believe it?  And I will be 35 months years old in March *gulp*.  I think Viktor has lost weight.  He is no longer on formula or the bottle, which the only reason he was on it was because this kid refuses to drink milk or anything besides water.  So, I think he dropped a half pound to a pound.  His doctor is not going to be happy about that.  Riley has gained all that and then some.  He is huge.  That kid is wearing 6 to 9 months already.  He is going to surpass Viktor's weight in no time.  Last time I checked he was 15+ pounds.  Viktor is only 21 pounds.

Riley went to the cardiologist a few weeks ago.  He was born with a PDA and an ASD which is common in Down syndrome.  His PDA closed and his ASD is still at a 3.  But, the doctor is hopeful that it will close on its own without surgery.

I have lost over 40 pounds since Riley was born.  WOOT.  Since dieting I have dropped 21 pounds.  I want to drop 15 more and then I will be skinny minny again.  That thought gets me through days like these when I am starving.

Oh, my husband got a vasectomy.  More more babies for us.  We are happy with our 3 boys.
