Happy Easter!

Today was so fun. Even though it was Alice's second Easter she was only about a month old last year. Her favorite thing of the whole basket was the grass :) This year Easter meant a lot more to me. Thinking about my my heavenly father and knowing he gave his son for us. For me. I have a greater understanding of truly what a sacrifice that was now that I am a mother and knowing the unconditional love you have for your children. I am so greatful to my father in heaven and my savior Jesus Christ for his atoning sacrifice.

My baby girl is 1

Alice had her first birthday on the 8th. I cant believe I have a one year old. Crazy. The year went by so fast. I feel so blessed to have this little girl in my life. I just love her more every day. She has started this fake laugh thing. We were eating out the other night and the people at the table next to us were laughing so Alice started doing her fake laugh. It was pretty funny. She is so cute my big little one year old. SO Crazy and I'm sure the years will continue to fly by.

vaccines and autism

So tonight I saw on the news that a little girl got autism from getting her vaccines. They said that she was more susceptible to getting it from immunizations than most, but there is no way to know if your child is more susceptible or not. The mother said she was a perfectly healthy child until she got her shots. Of course they had two doctors on there as well who both said that you still need to get your children immunized. They said they are doing more research. They also said the family would be compensated. I am just so scared to get Alice's done.Especially after hearing that they finally said publicly that the vaccines did indeed cause this girls autism. Well push the disease over the edge because she had some disorder that the previous vaccines caused. This was eight years ago and I know they have changed them since then but still. If and when I decide Alice's will have her vaccines I will for sure space them out. The mother also said shes not sure if her daughter getting five shots ( nine vaccines ) at one time had anything to do with it. Jenny McCarthy was talking tonight as well and said she wants there to be test done before the child is vaccinated to see if there susceptible to autism or not. Also that the doctors should spread them out more and there should be more information for the parent. ( she has a son with autism which she believes was caused from his vaccines ) Anyone else have any thoughts?

Good lil' eater!

This is Alice's portable highchair, which I love.
I haven't found one thing Alice wont eat. I am soo lucky because she is not picky at all. Yesterday John and I had lunch at subway and all John had left was some lettus with mustard on it and a banana pepper. So he gave them to Alice and she ate them both no prob. I dont even like mustard that much. She loves all fruits and vegetables. Really I've yet to find anything she doesnt like. I've also learned on this trip how honest children are. We were eating, again, ( that's pretty much the only time I see John during the day ) and this guy walked in with rings ALL over his face. Alice just stood there and stared at him until we were seated. Another time a bum came up and said hi to her and she burst into tears. A little embarrassing . They are so innocent. She is my pride and joy. =)
