So, there will be no picture posts until the computer is fixed. It WILL be fixed. It has ALL of our pictures for the past 2 years!!! I had just uploaded tons of pictures last night and that means they are no longer on my camera. I am nervous(but determined) to get this computer fixed and back up our pictures somewhere, anywhere.
One of my friends and I hosted a baby shower yesterday and it went very well. I will post tons of pictures when I can.
Tatum is now 17 months and I can't believe it. One of her new favorite things is ICE....she LOVES it. I have tried to get a video of her asking for it. She says..."Ice? Ice? Ice? Ice?" Until you give it to her.
Anyway, I will post more later(hopefully with pictures).
On a final note.....GO TIGERS!!!! As Willie Herenton would say...."We are 'shakin the HATERS off'!!"

Last Friday night, Jennifer( http://jennifersere.blogspot.com/) and I were put in charge of helping with a surprise party for Jenny (http://jdriley.blogspot.com/). We were put in charge of getting her to Sekisui. So, I told her that Jennifer and I wanted to take her out for a Girl's Night Out.
I decided that the restaurant choice would be a surprise so that she couldn't veto the choice and then we have to figure out how to get her there anyway, so she was a trooper and went along with us. Jennifer, Jenny, and I started at Jenny's house and hung out for a little bit and then left for dinner.
Below is a video of us walking in. As you can see, she was so busy talking that she didn't even see everyone sitting there for a few seconds!
Jenny's husband, Mike, did a great job of getting everyone together and surprising his wife! He even had balloons and a cake at the restaurant too. After we FINALLY got our food to eat(don't order quail at Sekisui or else you will be waiting a LONG time), we went back to Jenny and Mike's house and hung out with friends. It was lots of fun and I am SO GLAD that I didn't blow the secret!
It may not look like lots of hair in these pictures, but it was!! I like my new haircut and will have to post pictures of it soon.

Before I got in the water yesterday, I took a few pictures. Here are a few pics of Tatum with her Daddy in the pool.
The pool has a cover on it to make it an indoor pool, but they will be taking it off for the summer. So, we get the best of both worlds! Below is a video of Tatum with her Daddy in the pool. She is getting good at kicking and she REALLY wants us to let go, but that wouldn't be good. Looks like we need to break out the swimmies for her. (When you are watching, it gets a little foggy as it goes along, so I wiped the lense off a little bit into the video).
After I put my camera down and got in, we threw Tatum back and forth and she LOVED it and giggled and giggled. I wish I had a video of that too(maybe I will have to get the lifeguard to take it next time). We are also working with Tatum on blowing bubbles in the water and going under. The going under is getting better, but I can't get her to hold her breath(I have tried blowing in her face, but that doesn't work too well). Anyone have any ideas?

Antonio taught Tatum a new trick....
Tatum's little personality is coming out SO MUCH these days. She LOVES to imitate everything we do(as you just saw) and she loves to make us laugh. Even when she is getting in trouble, she flashes us a HUGE smile(but don't worry, she still gets disciplined).
Ahhhhh, I love her!

After we got done at the airport, we headed to Antonio's mom's church for a little welcome party and dinner. All the kids made posters to for "Tia Rubila"(I am not even sure if that is how you spell her name...oops).
These next pictures of my hubby might seem a little strange, but I HAD to post them because my dear Antonio has told me since we started dating that he WILL NOT eat corn on the cob, yet here he is....Things that make you go hmmmm......
Then I was giving him such a hard time about it, he started hiding from me so I couldn't take pictures of him.
That's all I have for now. My conference call for work just ended and I need to get out of the house. Enjoy the updates that are posted and I need to take some better pictures of Tatum to post.
We did not play in the snow at all. Tatum was a little under the weather and so was here Daddy. I managed to sleep alot on Saturday as well because I have been having some troubles with my migranes lately, so we bummed it out this weekend. I wish we had gotten Tatum out for a few minutes to at least get some pictures of her in the snow, but I don't think any of us felt like getting dressed to get out in the snow.

Anyway, I know I haven't posted a blog with pictures of Tatum in a while. I was waiting until I set my blog to private, so I promise I will put up lots of new pics and maybe some videos very soon.
One quick update on me, I went in for more bloodwork yesterday and got the results today. My hcg level was 4. The nurse said anything under 5 was considered not pregnant, so I don't have to go back again.....YAY. I was getting tired of giving blood every week!
That's it for now, but I will update with pictures of Tatum and the family soon, I promise.

...well, not exactly, but I will call it that. It is actually for training with work, but I will have my own room, so I am working on finding Antonio a flight down and back. It will be like an almost FREE vacation. We will only have to pay for his plane ticket!
I have been looking forward to this phase of training. They send us down to Miami to "live like a patient with diabetes" for a week. I don't know EXACTLY what goes on 'cause it is supposed to be a bit of a surprise, but I know we have to check our sugars 3-4 times a day, take insulin shots with every meal, etc. I know that one night they will also contact us somehow and tell us we are hypo and we have to find something to bring our sugar level up(We are supposed to try to find 4 ounces of orange juice). Sounds crazy, but this will give me a perfect insight as to what patients with diabetes have to do EVERYDAY! I know this saying is said WAY too much, but I plan to go all out and get into it because "I will only get out of it, what I put into it." I know, I know....I am so corny!
Also, I am going private on Saturday or Sunday, so if you read my blog and have not officially emailed me (Mom, Dad, Jenny, Jennifer, Tim, etc.) then you will not be able to read my blog after this weekend. Also, I have gotten several emails from people I do not know, but they read my blog. I have no problem if I don't know you and you want to continue to be able to keep track of my family. I read several people's blogs that I do not know, so I know how that is. Just send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or just leave a comment and I will add you.
That's it, I am awake and I want to be sleeping!
