My first New Years Eve.

Tonight we went to Uncle Johnny's for New Year's Eve. Tonight was also my first time eating out. Mommy packed my rice cereal and bananas up to take with us. While I was eating my friend Scooter wanted to see what was going on and what I was up to. We came home around 9:45 and Mommy and I went to bed her her bed. Daddy came home a few minutes later and moved to me to my bed. So my first New Years Eve was pretty uneventful.

Bon Appetit!!!!

This morning Mommy gave me Bananas. At first I did not know what to think. Then after a few spoon fulls they were OK. It was nice, Mommy got to feed me this morning since she has a doctors appointment at 9:15. I will spend half of my day with Evelyn then Grandma and Grandpa will pick me up. Mommy should be home early to give me my dinner. So far yay for bananas!!!! Mommy even got so video of my eating my bananas.

My 6 month photo shoot!!!!!

Tonight after I finished my dinner Mommy put my 6 month onesie on for my last onesie photo shoot. Mommy and Daddy said this was the funnest photo shoot we have had. I was being funny. Daddy was making me laugh. So next week Mommy will mail the last onesie to cousin Meg for my new cousin to do pictures. I am sure Mommy will still take pictures every month but I won't have any more cool onesies to do it in.

A Very Merry Unbirthday to me!

Today I am six months old. A half a year, can you believe it? My Mommy can't. My current stats are as follows: I weigh 16 lbs 15 oz. I am 25 1/2 inches tall. My head is 16 3/4 inches. I am still wearing 3-6 month clothes. I am wearing size 2 diapers and size 1 shoes (still). I am eating 4 oz bottles about 6-7 times a day. I am now eating rice cereal and a fruit or veggie twice a day. I still sleep through the night, however in the past few days I have been staying up later and waking up later (this is not good for Mommy trying to get to work on time).

So today I will spend my day at Evelyn's then Daddy will pick me up. When Mommy comes home she will make dinner for us then we will eat. Tomorrow I get to try something new. Mommy has not decided yet if it will be bananas or peaches. Last night in Target we saw prunes but dad said "No she is regular enough" These are my six month pictures that Mommy had done on Sunday.

To sum up these first six months of my life I would say they have been great. I am learning new things everyday. I love my Mommy & Daddy very much (I love my Mommy more as she sees to it that I keep up with my blogging). I love Buster and Bozley, my Grandma & Grandpa, my Nana and Papa, my Nina & Nino and Uncles Tim & Josh. I also love my GG. Mommy & Daddy take me to see her as much as possible. I hope to go see her in the next two days. I could not ask for more.

Performing Nightly: Mya Quinn and the Mommies!!!!!!

Tonight Mommy opened my Super Star Stage. I loved it. I loved it so much I was even head butting it and I did not cry. I love my new toy. It was making me laugh and sing. I was even able to hold myself up and sit up with out Mommy's help. I love all the lights it has and the different music and every time I touch it, it sings to me. I played for close to 45 minutes with it after I ate my sweet potatoes. Then it was time for my bed time bottle and bed time. I look forward to playing with Mommy every night until I can sit up on my own, then who needs her.

Mommy, Daddy and I went to go see GG again.

Today after we went to Sam's Club with Grandma and Grandpa, Mommy and Daddy took me to go see my GG again. I love to go see her because she loves me so much and makes me laugh so hard. Right when we got there GG was finishing her lunch. Then Great Uncle's Johnny and Jessie also came to visit GG too. So we all sat in the dining room and visited GG. Uncle Jessie held me for a while until I was ready to eat, then he gave me back to Mommy when I started crying. So I ate then Daddy and GG played with me. We will go visit GG again on New Years as that is when Mommy and Daddy are off of work again.

For starters on today's menu..........

will be sweet potatoes. I seemed to enjoy them a lot. Mommy gave me a half a jar of sweet potatoes this morning with a teaspoon of rice cereal on the side. Rice cereal is not that bad when I am eating it with something else. On Wednesday we will try something new. Probably bananas. So far I like eating. I will eat in the morning at the babysitters and at night with mommy during the week and Mommy will feed me on the weekends. I also enjoy sitting in my high chair. It makes me feel like a big girl.

6 Month Well Baby Check Up!

Today was a busy day. First Mommy and I went to see Dave, Linnea and Kirsten. Linnea and Kirsten played with me on the floor. I got to play with some of Kirsten's toys. Then we went to lunch.

After that Mommy and I headed home to get to my doctor's appointment. Before my appointment Mommy fed me and then I made a huge mess in my pants (it even got in my hair) then after Mommy got me cleaned up Daddy showed up. So we went in for my appointment. First they checked my temperature it was 97.1, then Mommy undressed me for my weight check. I weigh 16 pounds 15 ounces(Mommy thought I weighed at least 18 pounds). My head measured at 16 1/2 inches and my height is 25 1/2 inches. Then Dr. Fanselau came in. When she came in I was sitting up or Tripoding like the doctor said. I was in a very playful mood. Then she checked me out. She said all looks great and I can start eating food, twice a day for right now. Then it was time for my shots. This time Daddy held me and Mommy watched. I cried but before you knew it we were done. I even got my flu shot this time. I go back in a month for another flu shot.

Mommy and Daddy took me home and I got a bath then we went to Target . We needed a few things like A&D and I even got a replacement pair of slippers. Then we went home and I played with a few of my toys.
This is a picture right before my shots. Good Night!

Christmas at Nana & Papa's

Today Mommy, Daddy and I went to Nana and Papa's for Christmas. Mommy had lots of stuff to do this morning. So by the time we got there it was 2:30. When we got there I ate. Then a little later Kirsten came. We played on the dining room floor. Papa and Linnea even put me on Skipper to ride him, he did not care. I was so tired from everything that happened today, I fell asleep on Mommy while she ate her Christmas dinner. Then after dinner it was time to go home. I slept the whole way home. What a great first Christmas.

Present overload.

Santa came to my house. But I did not open those gifts until after I went over to Grandma and Grandpa's to open gifts there. Mommy took my Bumpo for me to sit in to open gifts. That was a good idea. Daddy sat on the floor with me to open all my gifts from my Grandma, Grandpa, Nino and Aunt Bea. After I was done then everyone else opened their gifts. Daddy had a whole lot of gifts to take home while Mommy finished getting ready to go to Nana and Papa's for the rest of our Christmas Day celebration.

My 1st Christmas Eve!

Today I stayed home with Grandma. Then Daddy came home really early. So he took me to see my GG. This was mine and Daddy's first outing alone. While visiting my GG (Great Grandma Gloria) her and Daddy made me laugh so hard I probably peed my pants. Then after we left GG's we went home Daddy changed me and then we went to Great Uncle Johnny's to spend Christmas Eve. Daddy, his Nina, cousin Yoli, Great Uncle's Johnny and Jessie played cards. Then Mommy came from work. She fed me and changed me. Then they ate Tamales, then since I was the only kid there I got to open my gifts, then it was time for bed so Santa could visit my house. So Mommy took me home and Daddy stayed and played cards for a while. So that was my first Christmas Eve. I am happy I got to see my family today.

Mommy & Daddy go out I act like a little Monkey!!!!

Last night Mommy and Daddy when to Uncle Brian's 50th Birthday party and I got to spend the night at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Grandpa loves to play with me so here I am climbing on my car seat like a little Monkey. Grandpa watched me so I did not fall. But it was very fun. I like to have sleep overs at their house. Today I am going to see my Great Grandma. I have not seen her since I got sick. It will be a nice afternoon.

I can do it Daddy......

I will hold my bottle. You hold me. This evening we went back to the doctor for a check up. My appointment was at 4:20 and Mommy did not get us there until 5:15 due to an accident on the freeway. The doctor still wanted to see me. So we checking my weight, I am now weighing in at 16 lbs 12 oz. So I have gained 11 oz this week. The doctor is very pleased with that. She is also very happy that all my test came back negative. We are going to watch my diapers for the next week until I go for my 6 month check up and then we will decide what we are doing with my formula. Tonight Mommy and Daddy went to go have dinner real quick and I stayed with Grandma and Grandpa. The doctor also commented on the fact that I stand up with help and that I am starting to sit up on my own. Tonight when Daddy gave me my last bottle I was holding it on my own too. I am a big girl!!!!!

Sleep over with Papa

Last night Papa came to spend the night as he could not get home due to all the snow. Nana said there had to be more then a foot of snow at her house and that she has never seen it this bad. When Papa got there he played with me and talked to me about how I should hate the snow and love the surf. He also told me that I should not listen to my Auntie Molly and Uncle Josh as they will tell me love the snow and hate the surf. Daddy told Papa I can do both when I get older. So we played then I got tired and fussy and Mommy took me to bed. Mommy, Daddy, Papa and I woke up this morning and Papa said goodbye to me. Papa also said I look like a morning baby as I was in my bed smiling away at him. He and Nana are going to stop by Saturday before Uncle Brian's birthday. So I will get to see them again before Christmas. Daddy checked the weather last night and they said that we might get another storm like this one and I may get a White Christmas at Nana and Papa's.

Working on getting back to normal.

Today Mya went and had some tests done. So far all looks good. Now we just need to resolve the diarrhea problem. The throwing up seems to have stopped. We are still feeding her 4 oz on demand. So now we work on her schedule. We go back to the doctor on Thursday to talk about the tests today and to check Mya's weight. Tonight Eddie was playing with Mya and she loves to play with her Daddy. She seems to be making her way back to normal. She either wants to be pulling herself up or throwing herself back. In these two pictures Mya is watching TV upside down on Mommy's lap and having fun laughing away with Daddy. That has been the one thing through this whole thing Mya has been a very happy baby. We love her so much. This has been so hard for all of us. Mommy especially.

One the road again....

Mya has now kept down 12 oz of formula!!!!!!!!!

This is so great. We went to the doctor this morning. She now weighs 16 lbs 1.5 ounces. For a total loss of 1 lb 5.5 ounces. The doctor had us cut off the Pedyalite and put her back on her regular formula. As her doctor fed her 4 ounces and she gladly took it. So her stomach could have been out of wack from the Rotavirus then having been on Pedyalite then switching to the Soy formula then to her regular. So we are back on regular formula and about 75% of it is staying down. Mya is resting well with her full belly at the moment.

Sunday, December 14, 2008


Well Mya is keeping down the Pedyalite/Apple Juice Combo. Uncle Dan came to visit for a quick moment this morning. Here I am swinging. Swinging always makes me feel better. We go back to the doctor tomorrow for a check up.

Not so much or none at all!

This morning Mya woke up without a wet diaper. So back to Urgent Care we go. She has no desire for Pedyalite and is no longer keeping formula down. Also what is more concerning is she has lost 1 pound 1 1/2 oz, she now weighs 16 lbs 5 oz.

So we have a new mix we are trying. One part Pedyalite to one part Apple Juice. She took it when we got home and ten minutes later she threw up. So I called the doctor we are going to take her back to a tablespoon at a time. She is asleep right now so when she wakes up we will start again. If she can not keep that down then back to the ER for another IV. I will post later tonight to update.

Friday, December 12, 2008

Not so much......

Mya can not take more then 2 oz of formula at a time. She seems to be getting better but her intake is a little less then half of what it should be. She does not keep down Pedyalite anymore. So we have a call into the doctor to see if she thinks we need to change anything. That's all for now. Today she is at the babysitter.

Thursday, December 11, 2008

Just an Update.

Well Mya got in 15-18 oz of formula and about 8 oz of Pedyalite yesterday with the majority of it staying down. Nana is staying with her today. She went to bed at 10 pm and woke at 6:45 am. If all goes well with Nana we will give her a 4oz bottle tonight before bed. Keep your fingers crossed. Once she is eating the right amount again then we need to work on her schedule.

Making Progress!

As of this morning Mya has had 4oz of formula. She had 1 at 7:25 last night, she had another at 9pm last night. Then she was up at 4:45 and had 2 more. Before leaving for work she had 2 oz. of Pedyalite. Grandma is watching her today. We are hopping for the best today.

She is on the road to recovery......

On Sunday Mya started throwing up while at the Temple City park. We called the doctor Sunday night. She said no more formula only Pedialyte, 1 teaspoon every 5-10 minutes. Then Monday she would not take anymore Pedialyte. So we called the doctor we saw her at 11:50. Nana came down to help (she was such a big help). The doctor said just get what we can down her. She did not want it. So then last night about 8:00 she started running a slight fever, she did not seem to have much saliva and stopped producing tears when she cried. We gave her Tylenol and she threw it up. We called the doctor again they said take her to emergency for dehydration. So we did. Eddie has not been feeling well either. So he went home. Mya was such a trooper. Since she was dehydrated it was very hard for them to get blood. It took 5 times for them to get something finally they did. They gave her a shot to stop the throwing up. That seemed to help. We got a 2 oz bottle of Pedialyte down her. Then at 2:30am we decided to start an IV. That took two more times to get that in. They finally got it in her left foot. After an hour of IV, 100ml we got 6 oz of Pedialyte down her and finished the IV. Finally at 3:45 she peed. So they took that to the lab for analysis and at 5:45 we got 2 more ounces for Pedialyte in her and we were discharged .As of her doctor's appointment on Monday she weighed 17 lbs 7 oz. Then this afternoon at 2:00 Eddie and I took Mya back to see the doctor. She was happy with her progress. She weighed 17 lbs 2 oz at her appointment today. They told us last night that sometimes it just takes an IV to get the ball rolling. That is what seemed to be the case. At 7:25 tonight we gave her 1 oz of formula, so far she has kept it down. She is sleeping on Eddie in the rocker at the moment. We are going to try and give her one more ounce tonight and hope for the best. Grandma is going to watch her tomorrow and Nana is going to watch her on Thursday so that way she can rest at home. The doctor said this is either Rotavirus or the stomach flu that has been going around. She is leaning toward Rotavirus as it has been over 24 hours and she is still not keeping things down. So that has been our last 48 hours. Very little sleep for Mommy and Mya.

Sunday, December 7, 2008

I don't think I am feeling well......

After Grandma came and picked me up from the park I started throwing up. Here I am in Grandma's bed watching her fold clothes. Mommy called the doctor and she said no more formula and we will see her tomorrow.

Crafting again.

Tonight Mommy and I went to the Temple City Park for "Lights on Temple City". We had a nice time. I starting spitting up a lot so Grandma came and got me. Here is a picture after the major lite the big tree in the park. Mommy put my first real jacket on me and I did not like it. We will work on that.

Cousin Melissa's Baby Shower.

Today Mommy, Grandma and I went to Cousin Melissa's baby shower. We only could stay two hours since Mommy had a craft shower. But it was nice to see all my family. Here is a picture of Melissa and I before we had to go home.

Going to visit my Great Grandma

Today Mommy, Grandma and I went to go see my Great Grandma. She has been in the hospital for a few days. We are waiting to find out if she needs to have a small surgery done next week. Great Grandma was so happy to see me. The nurses said I could visit for only an hour. So we visited and then we went home so Mommy could get ready for her craft shower tomorrow.

So I ate between Mommy and Grandpa in my car seat. Then I played while everyone else ate. After dinner I gave Grandpa my card Mommy got for me. He loved it and we took a picture together. After dinner we went back to Grandma and Grandpa's house, everyone was too full for cake so we will wait for tomorrow. So everyone sat and talked then it was my bed time so Daddy took me home and got me ready for bed. Happy Birthday Grandpa, love you!
