A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words...

Had to Share...

We had an experience tonight I thought I'd share... Anthon takes 2 Different kinds of insulin: Humalog (at every meal) & Lantus (morning & night). He came home from scouts and realized his Lantus bottle was missing- which happened to be his very last bottle that he had just opened a few days ago. He normally keeps it way up high where Roman can't reach it, & I don't mess with his stuff, so he was FREAKING OUT trying to find what he'd done with it after he had taken his morning shot. After frantically searching for it, we determined that there was no way we were gonna find it without help, so we said a little family prayer asking Heavenly Father to help us find this tiny bottle that is so vital for Anthon. A few minutes later I was getting organized for all the things I have to do tomorrow & Anthon was sanding wood for me outside, when the thought came to my mind, "I wonder if he could've thrown it away", but being the retard I am, I took one look at our completely full trash bag and decided not to search thru it. Hours later, we're in our G's ready for bed, Anthon has taken all the trash out to the dumpster (since the garbage man comes bright & early tomorrow morning), & we still haven't found the insulin that Anthon needs to take before going to bed. He finally says to me "Will you come outside with me to look through the trash? I can't stop thinking that maybe I threw it away.". We go outside, pull the bag out of the dumpster, cut it down one side, pick up the 1st thing that's not completely disgusting, & guess what falls to the ground??? THE LANTUS!!!
Moral of the Story, Heavenly Father is real, he loves us, he hears our prayers, and he answers them!

A Few Favorites

Roman is 20 months & his little personality is just flourishing!! He's talking a ton lately and is such a funny, loving little guy! I just wanted to document a few of his favorite things...
This picture has 2 of his favorite things:
1) the lawn mower push tow...which is ironic because the closest thing we have to grass is asphalt! He just likes to push it I guess :)
2) the unsightly frog rain boots! As soon as he wakes up, they're on his feet & he doesn't want to wear any other shoes (unless I'm mean & hide them)

The Dr. Seuss dolls they sell at Kohl's... the kid is OBSESSED! Carries around the 3 that he has everywhere, all the time. His favorite is the one with the wild hot pink hair... go figure :) I'm kind of happy about this though cause he'll play with her hair while he's falling asleep instead of mine!

There are a few other "must haves" for Mr. Roman (juice, any type of dog, and his pillow),but these are his top 3. I LOVE this crazy little man!
