Six Random Things...

1) If I could live anywhere my little heart desired it would be right on the beach. Preferably in a mansion, but I'd take whatever I could get.

2) I can't whistle. Never been able to and probably never will be.

3) I enjoy researching and studying about different serial killers (I know I'm weird, it's just very interesting to me)...if fact my dream job would to be a criminal profiler for the FBI.

4) The clothes in my closet are color ordered. It drives me crazy if they get mixed up.

5) I walked when I was only 8 months old. Too bad the age you start walking at has nothing to do with your skills later on in life :)

6) I made it through college without getting a single "F" (which is really good for me because I'm not the best student).

So... Tired

Last week Jake had to get another EEG test done and therefore had to be sleep deprived before we went at 2 pm. So as I'm sure any of you mother's know, by lunch time he was pretty tired from not taking his morning nap. Apparently he just couldn't take it anymore, and I just didn't have the heart to wake him.

Bend It Like Beckam

While my parents were in Mexico, they picked up these cute little soccer outfits for Jake, Brooklyn, and Aubrey. They loved watching our little super star, Chelsey in action.

Photo Shoot

Usually Jake is not very good at holding still when getting his pictures taken, but this time we got lucky.

Brad Comes Home!!

After two years on his mission to Mexico City, Mexico, Jakes uncle who he has never seen before finally comes home. What a reunion it was!

Jake is 15 months old

Wow!  Crazy how fast times flies when you have a kid.  I can't believe he is already 15 months old.  Here are some of Jakes likes and dislikes now:


-his thumb
-his "Woody" doll (he is Jake's buddy)
-jogging w/mom
-his silky blue blankie
-Baby Einstein
-looking @ himself in the mirror
-car rides
-his idol Brooklyn

Not so fav's:

-doctor visits
-drinking from a sippie cup
-people touching his face
-anything cold or sour

Luckily for me, the likes outweigh the dislikes.

Jake's Sad Day

While on a family vacation in Utah for the fourth of July, I awoke one morning to find Jake having a seizure. We took him too the hospital where they did a CT scan and a chest x-ray, and then decided he needed to be air lifted to Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City. There he had a spinal tap, EEG, and a MRI, but unfortunatly the doctors were not able to determine why Jake had a seizure. We will soon be going to a pediatric neurologist here in California who will hopefully be able to get Jake the help he needs. Watching Jake go through everything he had to was the worst experience of my life, but it was good to know I had lots of family and friends supporting us. Thank you all so much for the calls and prayers in our behalf...
