Another day in my life.

Well, this Taxol is kicking my hiney! :-( Rachel is doing good, but I'm feeling every bone and muscle screaming in my body for relief. I also feel like I swallowed a razor blade for some reason. Oh well, if it gets rid of this demon cancer, I can survive it!

I can't believe how smart Simon is already! Not only does he know pretty much all his colors - red, blue, yellow, purple, green, and orange (he can even say all of them) - he also already knows some of his letters by sight. We have some of those magnetic letters for the fridge & he can pick out A, E, I, O, & P. He can also help you say the alphabet after you get to the letter O. If you say O, he says P, you say Q, he says R, etc. He can also count to 3 (altho 'three' sounds just like 2). He's just amazing me w/ his intelligence! I love it!

Rachel is also amazing me. She honest to goodness smiles 'on command' - mostly for anyone but me. She can also hold her head up for about 10 seconds at a time for a period of about 15 minutes. She loves to take a bath - apparently she inherited that from me! She likes to soak in the sink of warm water. She's not a big fan of getting wiped though! She's also eating like a champ!

So many wondrous things! Even w/ the cancer and chemo I love my life! A wonderful husband & 2 awesome kids. What more could a girl ask for?!?!

Rachel has been smiling as a response to other people since day one.

In 2006, Andrew & I became one before God and family! Shortly thereafter we became 3 with the birth of Simon in 2008... Then 4 with the addition of Rachel in 2009!
