We Love Luggage Spotter

For those of you who don't know, my mom is an inventor. She has invented several products one of which is called Luggage Spotter. It is a piece of cushioned fabric that can have your business or team logo put on it. You can then put it on your luggage, backpack, laptop bag, and a variety of other things. Anyway she just got a really big blessing and Luggage Spotter is in Cracker Barrel Academy sports stores. The catch is that they ordered a small amount to test the product. If they sell out then they will do a big order. So everyone needs to go to Cracker Barrel and Academy and bug a Luggage Spotter so that they will sell out!!! She also has an commercial that is going to air soon for another product she invented called MicroWax. It is a special type of precut wax paper that you put over your food in the microwave. It prevents splatters and it allows you to cook lots of things in the microwave that would normally turn out yucky in the microwave. It is an amazing product that I have been in love with for years. The informercial should air sometime in Sept so be looking for it. It is the same deal as Luggage Spotter. They are airing it for 2 weeks and if it sells out then they will air it for one year. So if you see it then buy some!!! Be praying for my mom that these deals go great. She really really needs this right now!!!! Go buy some Luggage Spotter and Microwax and tell everyone you know how great they are so they will buy some too!!!

Potty Chair

When Makenna turned one we got her a potty chair. Every time we go to the bathroom we put her on the potty chair and clap and tell her that we are going peepee in the potty. We don't take her diaper off yet. We just want to get her used to going to the bathroom and sitting on the potty chair. She looks so cute on it. After a few weeks she loved sitting on it and would clap. But lately she will only sit on it for a few seconds and then she gets up. She is too busy to sit for very long. But we decided to try and get her used to it early so maybe potty training won't be so hard in several months when we really start trying.

Sunday School Party

A few weeks ago our Sunday School class had a party. It was at Craig and Cindy's house. They have a beautiful new house. There was a lot of really good food and we all had a great time. There was a slip and slide. I didn't think Makenna would like it but she loved it!!! All she wanted to do was go on it again and again. She had a great time!!! When it got dark they shot off fireworks. It was really good to social with our sunday school class outside of church. We all had a great time.

Crazy Nap

This is how I found Makenna when she woke up from her nap a few minutes ago. The blue thing on the floor is her diaper!! Being a mother is full of hilarious unexpected surprises!!

The Wonder Place

A few weeks ago DJ and I took Makenna to The Wonder Place in Little Rock. It is a play place for kids. It took her a little while to warm up but as soon as she did she had a great time. It has a lot of different rooms with things for the kids to do and things for them to climb on. DJ and I had a great time watching her play. I love to watch her figure new things out. We all had a good time. Here are some pictures.

This thing was really cool. You put a ball or scarf in it and it blows it through all these tubes and spits it out and it goes flying through the air.

This is what DJ did during our day! I'm just kidding. He only played on his phone a little bit. He played with Makenna a lot.

She made this picture.

There was a window in this tower. When she realized it she tried to see the people below her and then she tried to kiss them through the window!

Which one is the kid?! :)

The had a water table to play in.

A New Tooth

I know I haven't posted in a while but I have several to do so hopefully tomorrow I will get to them. The other night when Makenna was nursing she pulled off and looked up at me and smiled real big. I saw her 4 little teeth but I thought I saw something else. So I put my finger in her mouth and sure enough I felt another tooth. How she had a tooth break through and I didn't notice it, I don't know. But she has a new tooth on the bottom. I felt her top gums and and she has a tooth on each side of her existing two teeth that are about to come in. So now she has 5 teeth and any day now will have 7 teeth. I must say I'm not a fan of the teeth. I know they are necessary but they are not my friend when it comes to nursing!! :) She is getting so big and doing new things everyday. She is so smart. I have pics to post from the 4th but I have to get them from DJ's mom first. Hopefully in the next few days I will get all of my posts done. For now the new tooth is our most recent news.

DJ's Test

Today DJ had an EGD done. It is when they use a scope to go down and look in your esophagus, stomach, and first part of the intestines. He also had his esophagus dilated because he has a narrowing of his esophagus and it causes him to have a hard time eating certain foods. He had this done several years ago for the same problem. It is something that will need to be done every few years. The doctor Aunt Bev works for is the one who did the procedure. He is very nice and I fully trust him. DJ had to be sedated for the procedure. He is very sensitive to this type of medication so he asked them to give him less than usual so they did. But Dr. Metrailer said that when he started the procedure DJ asked for more medicine so he gave it to him. He did wake up afterwards and drank some water. He said his throat was very sore and he was feeling nauseated. I offered to get him some food but he didn't want any. He just wanted to come home and sleep. His procedure was at 10:00 am and he is still asleep. I'm sure he will sleep the rest of the day. But tomorrow I'm sure he'll be feeling much better.
