Walking Walking Girl!!!!!

Yesterday Jayda started walking!!!!! I was just on the ground with her and she was holding on to me standing up and just started going like half way across the room (like 6-7 steps). Then she just started walking like all day (got up to about 10-11 steps). Its nuts seeing her walking!!! She is only 14.5 months actual and 11.5 months adjusted so WELL within the normal range even for actual age! What a big girl! I'm not sure if I can load videos on here but I shall try!

Update on Jayda's Clostridum Difficile

SO last Tuesday, Jayda started getting the runs really really bad. I figured maybe she caught a stomach bug or something when we went up to our family cabin, but after about four days of it getting worse not better. She was pooping about 8-10 times a day this really nasty green mucousy poop ( I know TMI right). Well the poor thing got such a bad diaper rash because she was pooping so much it actually started to bleed. So on Friday I took her to the doctor. He said the stomach bug was going around but that since she was getting worse and not better he wanted to tkae some stool samples. Let me tell you how FUN that was....not...all I gotta say is she better freaking know how much I love her because that crap (no pun intended) was GROSS!

So the labs came back on Monday and the Doctor told me that she tested positive for a bacteria in her intestines called CLostridum Difficile. He said it is caused by getting too many antibotics and it kills the healthy bacteria in her intestines and causes issues. It can be life threatening if not treated but it is pretty rare (more prevalent in elderly patients). The ironic thing is that in order to get rid of it they prescribe a very strong antibiotic. The problem is that she HATES it SO bad. Anytime we give it to her she gags and throws it up. It is nasty stuff and tastes like cough syrup. It takes two people to give it to her. One to squirt it in her mouth and the other to distract her so she doesn't gag and throw it up. We have to give her 8mls 3 times a day!! Thats A LOT! Plus we have to give her 4 mls of her reflux meds twice a day! Thats 32 mls of medicine a day! An little over an ounce! But good news is that is it really starting to work! She has only pooped once today (she usually poops 4 times in the first hour that she wakes up) and her diaper rash is already improving. We are also loading her up with probiotics. She is much much happier now though! Poor girl! It seems like its always something!

Meeting Michael from The Biggest Loser!

So Chase is the best! Last week he won on the radio a chance for me to come down to the radio station and not only meet Michael (the last winner of the Biggest Loser) but also be on the radio and ask him a question on air! He is such an awesome guy and is so bubbly! I asked him on air about whether or not he still gets weak moments and what does he do when he sees his favorite foods. And he said that he treats himself to pizza or whatever every now and then but he just works before he plays so to speak. When he eats pizza he bikes to the pizza place or works it off, but that you have to treat yourself every now and then. Here's some pics of us and of me asking him the question on air! It was so awesome!

Also I was talking to one of the DJs and she is a big runner as am I. She was telling me about the half marathon in November and I decided I am going to run it! I am so scared but I still have awhile to train. I am already up to 7 miles which is great. She said that if I run in it too that I will be able to run with some former biggest loser contestants! How awesome would that be! I decided I am also going to run a 5k on September 25th to help train. It also is for something near and dear to me. It will be in honor of the Steps for Hope which is for "pregnancy Hope" which helps women have safe pregnancies and offers support.
