Death Sucks

Grandma Great's funeral was yesterday, and it went good as far as a funeral can go. She looked really good. And the flowers were beautiful. Heather talked about memories with her and though I only knew of a few of them, it was touching, to see the Turners/Hardens/Ferraris/Baers/Bells (to many slashes? Naw!) nodding their heads and reminiscing was beautiful. They are a wonderfully close family.
I got to see and touch Dana's belly!!! She is so cute.. I love it. I can't wait till baby Beanie(?) arrives... They are going to be great parents.
So Thin Thursday.. HA! I haven't been to the gym, I haven't been eating right... 5 oatmeal cookies a day, wonderful! Maybe I'll go on an oatmeal raisin cookie diet?

Also my cousin's grandmother passed away yesterday morning. She had cancer. This sucks, death sucks. I have no problem with death, but so young (she was only like 50 something) and so painfully... sucks!

Taiden.. 3 Months

Didn't want to include this in the other post, but here are Taiden's 3 month pictures.
GQ'n it.
So blessed.
Ribbit, my little frog boy.
This is my Favorite.

He loves his monkey!

What you talking about Willis? He refused to smile!

Grandma Great

Grandma Great passed away on Sunday. We knew it was coming but it is still very painful. I was there with the family when she left, and I kind of feel like I was intruding. I wanted to be there and I know Devan wanted me to be there with him, but I don't know about the rest of the family. They didn't make me feel that way at all, but the Turners are way to nice to say anything I think. I wanted to cry, but held it back. This was their GRANDMOTHER, who am I to come in knowing her for 3 short years and cry like the rest of them? Do I have that right? I really don't know.
I'm so glad her family was there with her when she passed. My grandmother was alone, because she kicked my aunt out of the room. But also because my Aunt told NOONE how bad she was really doing. I would have made sure I was there with her everyday like the family was there for Grandma Great.
I mourn the fact that my Grandmother didn't get to meet Taiden, but I think I mourn even more that Grandma Great got to meet Taiden only to be taken away (even though she is with Blair and in a better place). She loved him so much and she was the only one who could make him smile and talk like he did. I only wish he could've grown up knowing her if only for a little while longer. I'm really glad I got that last picture of them smiling at each other. They are beautiful.

14 weeks

Taiden is 14 weeks! Wow. He's getting so big! I tried updating a while ago and it wouldn't let me load my video so I gave up and never even posted what I had written!
Taiden was blessed on Sunday. He was stylin.. Thanks Auntie/ Godmother Ollie. What an expereince for the Turners! The service was espescially "excentric" this week... ha ha. Probably a bit of a culture shock for the Baer boys also. Lesley said it's good for them so I guess that it's okay. :)
Taiden thinks he can sit up, and trys to scoot, but only succeeds in getting his legs under him before they slide back... he can move like an inch in 5 minutes ha ha. I'm at work now, so I'll have to post a video later. He's been rolling over since the first week I brought him home, but now he knows he's doing it and kind of knows how.
People who get the biggest smiles(quickly)-
Grandma Great
Felecia (my sister)
Rikki(my friend)
Everyone else...

I won't disclose where I am on the list... It's embarrassing. I get big smiles but only after he looks at me like I'm crazy for a while. (We all know I am crazy, but I didn't think he'd catch on so quickly. But I'll also post a video when I get home that may explain this.)

Being back to work is hard, but not as hard as I thought it would be. After yesterday it's gotten a bit harder though... Another baby bit him on his face @ daycare! Enough said. I'm switching his daycare as soon as another one opens as how good they actually watch my so is in question right now... The child bit him on his face and his hand, I don't understand how he was bitten twice. But the child was removed from the classroom and they won't be in the same room anymore, and he will be out of there {hopefully} soon anyways.
