Lots of Changes

We have had many changes around the Vitart household. One of which will hopefully lead to me having the time to keep this blog up better. Thanksgiving week was my last week of working outside the home. I am now a full time stay at home mom and am loving it. It is definitely a big adjustment from what I was used, but we are working on getting our routine down. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to raise my girls.

In other news, we are expecting baby number three! It will arrive sometime in July. We are thrilled! Things should definitely get interesting around here. I will go to the doctor on Friday to get a due date, etc.. Ella Katherine is super excited. She claims we are having two babies and they will be named Santa and Relf.

Ella Katherine turned three yesterday. She is such a little comedian! Her favorite things these days are muscials, Dora, cooking, dressup, her "night night", and artwork.

Anne-Hartley or "Hart Baby" will be 20 months tomorrow. She is so full of life. The child loves to eat!! Her favorite things are doing everything her sissy does, getting into all the cabinets, her paci and blankie, and being Ms. Independent.

Matt and I will celebrate four years of wedded bliss (and chaos:)) tomorrow. We have had a wonderful four years full of stress, but many blessings. We have moved, started and completed law school, had two babies with another on the way, joined the Army, completed and passed the bar, moved again, became a stay at home mom, and the list goes on and on. I love you and am so happy that God chose you for me to make this journey with!

We're Back

Hopefully now that our lives are finally starting to settle down a bit, I can keep this thing updated. The Vitarts have had LOTS of changes in the last couple of months. God has continued to give undeserved blessings, and we are so grateful for it all!

Matt completed and most importantly PASSED the Bar! He began work about a month ago. He is loving it! Definitely a big change from being a student. We are so grateful that he got such a great job with wonderful people.

We also bought a house out in Madison. As some of you know we have been stuffed like sardines into a two bedroom/one bath town house. It was perfect for Matt and I, but we continued to grow unplanned. We love our new neighborhood and we love living out here.

Ella Katherine has started staying with Matt's mom during the day. This only adds to her divaness(not a word I realize). Of course thats what grandparents are for, right? She is two going on twenty. I am amazed at the things that come out of her mouth. She tells us all the time that Hart is a baby and she is a teenager. We finally moved up to a "big girl bed." If you come over it will be the first thing she shows you. She is very proud.

Hart is all over the place and eating us out of house and home. Our quiet little baby that you would forget was even in the room is no longer. She brings us so much joy though. She is definitely going to be the class clown. She is really starting to learn alot of words.

Wow it has been AWHILE!!! Our lives, the last several months, have been a little on the crazy side!!

Matt finally graduated from law school in May. We are so proud of him!! That same day, he commissioned into the Army as a Second Lieutenant. He is currently preparing for the Bar exam that will be held at the end of July. Please add this to your prayer list. He will start work the second week of August!

Ella Katherine is doing great! She is 2 going on 20. Everyday before leaving the house, she tells us she needs her purse, iPhone and make ups. She is sassy and prissy as can be. She keeps us rolling. I love that little girl! However, we are definitely in the "terrible twos." Its a constant battle.

Our sweet Hart baby turned one on April 16th. She brings us SO much joy. She is everywhere right now, but still not walking. I am in absolutely no hurry though!! The child loves to eat too. She is almost wearing the same size as her sister already!!

We are still trying to sell our town home. I know it will happen when the time is right. We are completely out of room here, but at least we have a roof over our heads. I am just tired of trying to keep this place showable. You keep it spotless for a week, and the one day you let it go, someone drops by to look.

If I caught you up on everything that happened since I last posted, it would take me days. This is just a small glimpse.

Sick Little Girl

I am doing this post from Blair Batson Children's Hospital. This has been our residence since Wednesday afternoon. Hart started coughing and running fever Saturday. Sunday morning we packed up and left Collinsville to head to the pediatrician's office in Jackson. They discovered and ear infection and we were sent home with antibiotics. Mother met Matt on Monday night and took both girls back to Collinsville. Hart never seemed to improve and continued running fever. Mom let me know that she was very sick on Wednesday morning and to call the pediatrician. I immediately drove towards Collinsville and met up with mom in Hickory and grabbed Hart to bring her in. She was pitiful and I knew immediately it was not good. We went straight to the doctors and when we arrived she still had fever and was really struggling breathing. I could see the concern on the doctor's face. They gave her a breathing treatment and then hooked her up to the oxygen monitor. Her oxygen level was at 84 and her bpm was at 202.They immediately hooked her up to an oxygen machine. They also tested her for RSV and it came back positive. To say I was an emotional wreck at this point is an understatement. The doctor then came back in and told me we were definitely headed to the hospital, then she said now I am justmcontemplating whether she should go by ambulance. I held it together, but inside I was freaking out! So they pulled up, sirens and all, and put her little carseat on the stretcher. They wheeled us through the full waiting room and out into the ambulance. When we arrived they did xrays, bloodwork, iv, etc... The xray showed pneumonia. On top of all this she has a double ear infection. It has been a rough couple of days, but today things have finally turned around. She is smiling and resting well. They just removed the oxygen and drip. she is doing ok without oxygen. It is still a little lower than normal, so we end up back on it. We will for sure be here again tonight and they will reevaluate the situation tomorrow. Please keep us in your prayers.
