New Blog

FYI...I started a new blog.  It should be linked to this one.  It's titled Heavenly Chaos.  I was having problems with this blog and hope that I have resolved those problems with the new blog.  :)

Tuesday, March 9, 2010


so I have been having some problems with my blog.  For some unknown reason my blog will not accept comments.  So I am starting a new blog.  I changed the name on this one back to Sweet Talk and the new one will be called Heavenly Chaos...cause that's what it feels like around here most days.  I will be so sad when all the noise and chaos that comes with having kids is out of my home!  That's another post! :)  So anyway...just FYI for my friends who have been wanting to comment for a long time now, hopefully the new one will work! :)

Days A Part...

It is really emotionally hard for me when my hubby is gone. You would think that I would be used to it by now, but it doesn't ever get any easier. He works A LOT. Like 16 hours a day sometimes more. He owns his own business and has two stores. One here in Bakersfield and one in Fresno. He is a ticket broker, he buys and sells tickets to events world wide. So when there is an event in Fresno he works the Fresno store for the week leading up to the show. I am so grateful for all of his hard work and I would never complain to him or make him feel bad for leaving so that he can make money for our family! That being said...I really dislike it when he is gone. I put on my brave face and pretend that everything is just fine and I make sure that the family runs just as smoothly with him gone as it does when he is here, but after all the kids go to bed I am overwhelmed with sadness and loneliness. I feel it all day long too, but I deal with it when I am alone. I have lots of friends who love when there husbands/boyfriends go out of town. They enjoy their time without them. I don't think that is a bad thing at all...I just don't enjoy it. I have been SO blessed to have found my soul mate. I married my best friend and when he is gone so is a part of me. I will say this though, it definately re-instates just how much I love him and how thankful I am for him!! Thankfully today is the last day of him being gone. He will be home around midnight and my heart can once again be complete and I can rest easy again.

Emily is 3 months old

WOW...I cannot believe how fast these last few months have gone. I am terrible at blogging (wish I were better!). I missed the 2 month milestone :( I guess better late than never right? This is where we are:

  • You started sleeping through the night at 2 1/2 months in your own bed

  • You take a 3 hour nap in the middle of the day along with a few short naps throughout

  • You still LOVE your Moby and so does mommy

  • Two weeks ago you started rolling from your stomach to your back

  • Last week you conquered rolling from your back to your stomach
  • You can sit up with some support and you really like your floor time

  • A few days ago you began to truly know that hearty belly laugh that is SO contagious

  • So far you have been to a movie (Chipmunks the Squeakquel) and to your first Globetrotters game. You were amazing at both events

  • You are the apple of your Daddy's eye, your mommy's heart and you have both sisters and your big brother wrapped very tightly around your little finger

  • You are full of smiles and joy and have tons to say

  • You rarely cry and are very content

  • You weigh 15 pounds (90th percentile) and are 25 inches long (89th percentile)

The last few months have been absolutely glorious! You are the best baby and the sunshine in our days. We love you Emily Olivia Grace Kennedy! Thank you Jesus for giving us such a perfect little blessing.

Skyler's 11!!

The day is almost over, but I at least I made it! Happy birthday baby girl! 11 years ago my labor started at 10:30 last night. Your dad and I headed to the hospital around midnight. We were there for a couple of hours while the nurses and I argued about how much time I had left. The RN that was on duty decided to release me against my better judgement. So around 2:30 we headed back home. From the hospital to our apartment it was about a 20 minute drive and by the time we got home and got settled it was after 3:00 in the morning. I continued to have labor pains and after being home for only 30 minutes I woke your dad up and told him we needed to head back to the hospital. He went into the front room to get his shoes and by the time he came was too late. I told him we weren't going to make it to the hospital and he needed to call 911. He thought that I was joking...but it was NO joke. It was about 4:00 now and he was on the phone with the 911 operator and you were well on your way. You made your grand entrance at 4:15. You weren't breathing right away so your dad had to use his finger to clean out your mouth, he was also instructed to find a shoe lace or a string and tie off the umbilical cord. I have never seen a shoe unlaced so quickly in my life. You were crying and breathing and everything was good. At about 4:25 the fire dept. and the paramedics arrived. They were very shocked to see that you had already arrived. It was an experience that I will never forget. You have always had your own way of doing things and you definately made a memorable entrance. You made the front page of the local section in our newspaper, your story was talked about on most of the radio stations and the t.v. show Extra came up from LA to do a story on us and unite us with the 911 operator who coached your dad through everything on the phone. Your birth was special and unique and so are you Skyler Michelle. Mommy loves you!!
