Beds and growing...

Well, we have some exciting news! Elise is now in a "big girl bed!" We decided to change her crib last Thursday, Ethan was happy, because he got to help! I thought it was time, because she never wanted to sleep in her crib. She always wanted to sleep in my bed, which was strange, because we have never let our kids sleep with us. Well, the first night was hard, she awoke every hour, I think because she was looking for the barrier of her crib wall. But the next night went well, she slept from 8-6! Now, it is good, she really likes her bed, however she has fallen out a few times and can't get back in it, because it's too high off the ground. Other than that, all is great!

Other news, I took Ethan to see the Endocrinologist again, this is the doctor that runs tests to find out why he isn't growing. So far, all the tests have shown nothing and Ethan has grown a whopping 8Th of an inch since last year. Dr. Dallas really wants Ethan to be on a growth hormone, because he is the size of a two year old and he's 4. It makes me really sad, and we have a big decision to make. This growth hormone would be given in the form of a shot EVERYDAY. It makes me sick to think that I would have to give him a shot! However, we are waiting to find out more information on the drug so we can make an educated decision. My sweet son can walk in the toddler room and he fits right in! The Dr's know that we aren't the tallest people in the world, but this should be the time that he grows the most. We will let you all know when we know! I'm leaning towards giving it to him, and Ramon still isn't sure.
Adios for now!

Flowers, Shots, and Screaming

"Flowers" that Ethan "made" me, very cute. He keeps making sure I haven't thrown them away!

The other day, Ethan was looking at a picture of Ramon and I:

Ethan said: Mom, those are my parents!
Me: Yes, that was when we got married.
Ethan: Mom, I'm gonna get married.
Me: Yes, you will find a special lady to marry some day.
Ethan: Mom, will you be the special lady that marries me? I want to marry you!
Me: yes!
I thought that was so sweet.

Today, Ethan got his 4 year shots. We were both dreading this occasion! I heard that the four year shots are worse than the others. Ethan always acts like he's going to die right there on the table after getting any kind of shot. However, today, he was absolutely ridiculous. I feel sorry for the poor nurse. I was holding his hands and upper body down and she couldn't get the needles to stay in his leg because his muscles were so tight! Finally, it was over. I felt bad for the poor guy. I was trying to get his pants on him and couldn't, so the nurse started to help me. Ethan stopped screaming looked at the nurse and said "Don't touch me!" I started laughing and couldn't quit. The nurse said .."well, I guess you don't want me to touch you!" She went out of the room and Ethan stopped screaming for another second to say "Mom, I do not like that nurser!" He finally stopped crying until we got around the corner and thought he might get sympathy from the people in the hallway or waiting room and started crying again. It was a hard day for him.

Elise is just a stinker, here lately, she has wanted her daddy more than me. She has him just where she wants him..already! Every time she hears the chime from the door open, she says "HIDE" and starts giggling. She is adorable. She has started this really annoying thing where she wants to sleep in my bed. I'm not sure how this came about. I have never let her sleep with me. But, I just keep putting her in her bed and try to explain (to a one year old) that mommy and daddy sleep in there. She isn't getting it! Now, she screams for an hour or more every time she goes to bed. Wonderful! Please tell me this will stop!
