Lego Elly's early rise....

Someone is just wayyyyyy too happy at 4:30 in the morning.  NO....  not even joking.  I was still awake, couldn't sleep - so Kale brought this butter-ball into me... LOL...

"Hey, you got chocolate?"

She didn't really like that whole conversation I had with her about how she shouldn't be up at such a crazy hour.  She wasn't impressed....

I got up and was taking pictures of the Legos Noah got for his birthday from Nana & Papa....

Me and my skinny arse braids ....

Yeah - this was about the height of my excitement ... playing WOW and watching Big Brother UK 2009 ...  off YOUTUBE ... on my TV ...

Oh and this lil' thang........ 

Me and two of my favorite people!  Well - ya know... out of the 12 favorite people I have - in my family ... (including my Mommy) ... not including my friends.... (or other relatives)

This boy and this girl.........

World of Warcraft inspired bags tonight ....

Sadly ...  Kale's grandpa lost his battle with cancer this afternoon :(  

Kale's Grandpa lost his battle with cancer today. My heart breaks for the family, and for Kale. I remember being in the hospital when Elly was born, he came into the room for just a few moments. We found out later he had just learned his cancer was back. That was 6 months ago. Only 6 months ago. I was happy to hear that he had the chance to go home (yesterday) and that he was kept comfortable. He passed away in his wife's arms, there could be no better way to go. My heart breaks for their loss. Maybe there is some relief that he no longer is suffering. I hope and pray that he is holding up his loved ones in their grief right now, as they have held him up the past few months. R.I.P. Leo. You were very very loved.

Hair-loss and a couple of Monkeys

Today has been another one of those days that I just sleep half the day away.  I actually went to bed at a pretty decent time (around 2am which is better than 4am)  and I slept until 12:30 AM.  However, I did start feeling pretty ill around 6pm last night, went to bed, fell asleep then, slept until about 8, got up did meds, slept more until 10:30...  watched some TV with DB ... was asleep by 2...  slept basically until 12:30 this afternoon... I still didn't feel well this morning.  By the time I woke up in the afternoon - I felt better.  If I am not getting sleep - things are so much worse for me.

Kaedyn came home spend some time with his "girl" ... we do call her Kaedyn's Girl and him Elly's Boy.  Joke about them getting married later in life, how they aren't ACTUALLY blood related - so it could totally happen.  LOL...

He's very into making Elly laugh and all that.  He's a great Uncle.  That's for sure.  Whenever she starts fussing and he's around, he goes "I'll get her a teether" because we have teethers in the fridge and he always goes and gets the HEART teether because he "loves her" ... heehee...

So I always tease Shi and Kale that Kaedyn is giving Elly his heart because he loooooooves her! LOL

I love my family.   Like - totally flippin love my family.  My big family of eleven.  I always wanted a big family!  I have a BIG family.   My Grandparents had 8 kids.  (My Mom was the ONLY girl.  She had seven brothers.  My Grandfather had seven sons.  LOL ... they actually had more kids but my one Uncle was a twin, and the twin died after birth at 2 days old, plus my grandmother had a few miscarriages.)

So I've been having trouble brushing my hair for the last few months.  My hands are hurting a lot.  My hair is getting longer.  So it just hurts.  Plus you blow on my hair from across the room and I get major rat nests.  I swear my hair does the freaking Cha-Cha on it's own knotting it up.

So I gave my hair a really good brush out and braided it in double braids...  and was shocked.  I have been losing hair over the past few years (like 3 years).  I have brought up this fact to my two previous doctors.

Doctor #1 said:

Oh it's normal to lose hair.  (and proceeded to reach up and pull a couple strands of loose hair off her head) 

Doctor #2 said:

Let's deal with some of this other stuff first...... 

(rolls eyes)

This is the amount of hair that I pulled of my brush/comb as I was working through my hair.  THIS IS NOT NORMAL.  (pen there for reference.)

My hair in 2008 and my hair now in 2016 in double braids.  My hair in 2008 was as big as my palm.  Not even joking on that.  Now they are these tiny little braids.

I just don't know what to do.  At all.

Anyway - little Miss is a fatty.  She's wearing 12 MONTH CLOTHES and she's only 6 months old!

And she thinks she can start getting ready to scoot - what is up with that????

Here she is hanging out with her favorite boy in the house......  

If you *help* her get her toes to her mouth, she can totally eat them.  LOL... and boy oh boy is she all about her toes right now!

But I just <3 her so much!!!

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
