Jaylee turned 7 months last Friday and I didn't have time to post. Anyway she is getting so big! On Saturday my dad started clapping at her. I tried to help her clap but she wouldn't open her hands. She just would use her closed hands to clap while I helped her. I didn't know if she was to interested in it, so I tried again on Sunday just a coupld of times. By Sunday she could do it a little by herself. Yesterday after I picked her up from the babysitter we went home and I asked her if she could clap her hands and she started clapping so good. She was so cute that I decided I better record her doing it! She is just growing up way too fast! I can't figure out how to get my video to flip sorry!
Brock's party was on Saturday. He wanted to have it at Mama's Pizza (my parents restaurant). All the kids came dressed in their Halloween costumes. I don't know what I was thinking when I decided to make cupcakes, the cake, and sugar cookies for the kids to decorate. I think I was trying to win the mother of the year award. lol. I baked all Friday night and Saturday morning. I am not doing that again! I was exhausted by the time the party was over. I will just buy it next time to save my sanity and feet! I do have to say that my cupcakes turned out adorable. Since we were having a Halloween themed party I made pumpkin cupcakes and a pumpkin cake. I had a disaster with the cake on the way to the party, it started to fall apart. What a mess, but whatever it is the thought that counts right? So about the party. Tons of kids came and they had a great time. They decorated their Halloween shaped sugar cookies, ate pizza and cheese sticks, sang Happy Birthday, Brock opened his presents, and then they got a cupcake and a goodie bag. All of this was accomplished in 1 hour! I was so excited that it was over that quickly.
Other things that happened last week was Homecoming! This years theme was Haunted Homecoming, so I dressed up for the different themes each day to go to work. I had a great time embarrassing Brock with my crazy outfits, oh yeah and Jason as well. Jaylee could care less as long as she got fed she didn't care what I looked like. I was part of the teacher's skit and lip sync. We were the Ghost Busters and it turned out really cute! I will have to find someone that took a picture so that I can post a picture.
Brock lost 2 teeth last week! He has the worst tooth fairy EVER! She forgot both times, but redeemed herself by leaving the money with me the first night to give to him and the second time he just didn't look hard enough and the money appeared underneath the other pillow!
So my SIL Andrea told me about this cute website that had little tutus and wings. Come to find out the website is Jason's friend Quinn's wife's stepmother. Did you catch that? If not oh well. I showed a few of my friends the website and they all wanted some, so I placed an order for all of us. They came in the mail last week and they are all so adorable! The best part is that they were only $9.99 for each set. I LOVE bargains! Each set included a tutu and wings and then some came with a wand, flowers, and head piece with ribbons hanging down the back. Jaylee wore one of them to Brock's party with some cute leggings.

BROCK was born! I can't believe it has already been 7 years. It has gone by so fast! Here is just a little overview of how he came into this cruel world. This is more for my benefit of having this in writing! My actual due date was on the 11th and I decided to go to the carnival that was in town to get a Carmel apple. I went with my friend Erin and we stood in line forever. Right after I got the Carmel apple I bit into it and the apple broke off of the stick and it rolled right over the top of my belly and I caught it as it fell off of my belly. I REALLY wanted that Carmel apple!
Anyway after that my friend Erin came over to my parent's house to show me pictures of an accident she had been in. She was hit by a drunk driver and her face was really messed up. I decided to look at the pictures and while I was looking at them I went into labor. It was around 10pm. Finally around 11 my mom talked me into getting in the car and letting her drive the 50 miles to the hospital. Along came my dad and Erin. When I arrived at the hospital I was only dilated to a 2! They told me that I could walk around and see if I progressed any further or else I needed to go back home. I was like you have to be kidding me, my back was going to fall off. I tried to walk around, but instead I feel to my knees from the pain. (If you don't know me I am the biggest WIMP!!!!)
So they gave me one more option and that was to take a hot shower. It was the hottest shower that I have ever takin, but it felt so good. I stood in their with pure HOT water for 20 minutes. My mom was so cute she kept checking on me to make sure that I was going to pass out. After the shower the nurse checked me and I was at a 5. When I heard the news I told them I wanted an epidural ASAP. I was the meanest woman in labor. I chucked a wash cloth and yelled at everyone. Poor Erin got left in the room with me while my family hung out in the waiting room. The worst part was that nobody told me not to drink water, and so needless to say I puked everywhere and the nurses had to change the bed with me on it, because I had already had the epidural. It was quite embarrassing! Anyway Brock Danzen Bullock was born at 6:19am on October 12, 2002. It weighed in at a whopping 9lbs. 1oz. and he was 21 inches long. That wasn't the worst part he had the biggest head measuring at 17 1/4 inches! He was not a newborn he was already a toddler!lol
Brock has been a true blessing! He has a fun personality that sometimes drives me crazy, but I wouldn't have him any other way. He loves to play sports and video games. He is the best big brother ever. He helps out with Jaylee and she adores him! I am so glad that Jason came into our lives so that Brock could have a father. It has been a change for everyone, but for the better!
I am the biggest night owl! I seem to get a burst of energy once it gets dark and my kids go to bed! I love to craft and find cute ideas on other blogs. Unfortunately I can't create cute projects during the day since I am a Special Education teacher. Every chance I get I love to make things to make my house feel like HOME.
