Happy New Year!!!!

Hey guys,

Its about that time again! 2013 is coming to an end in less than 6 hours!!!!

I seriously can’t believe all that has happened this year.

My parents surprised myself, my sister and brother-in law (soon) with a new years trip to Miami!

Tonight we’re going to our friend’s annual new years party! I went a few years ago it’s a nice party at their beautiful apartment with an awesome balcony view of the whole city. At midnight we all hang out on the balcony and watch fireworks.

So excited for a great year ahead!

~Happy New Year!!!!!!!

Sweet Little Babies

Hey guys,

On Wednesday at the hospital I spent time with a few babies.

I spent time with this precious 6month old boy who has been by himself every time I see him. He was very squirmy I got him to focus on a shaker toy. He seemed to like it. I also spent time with my little 2 year old boy who had the surgery Tuesday afternoon. He was out of it the poor thing but I got him to smile a bit. I also visited a 6 month old baby boy and his mom for a bit. Quite a few of the children I was assigned to visit had rough nights and or procedures so they were sleeping most of the day so I didn’t get to spend time with them.

I  also visited a precious brand new baby and his mom. Poor mom is exhausted and tongue tied being cooped up there. This baby was so sweet. I helped her bathe him and kept the baby company when she needed to step away.

It was a nice day. I’m sure going to miss the munchkins for the next two weeks!

Child Life: Helping, Hoping, Caring, Loving, Supporting

Hey guys,

Today at the hospital I worked with mostly new patients. I worked with beautiful infants. I visited with a beautiful 3 year old little girl who I saw one time before. She was up out of her bed in her chair more up to playing. I wanted to eat her up she is so cute!

I was also keeping this baby company the mom was asking me my favorite age to work with. Its interesting because I love different things about each age I have worked with. With infants I love providing comfort and soothing them with my voice. It touches my heart when I can get their attention and help them relax. Even though these tiny babies are so young they respond to calm sounds and light touch, colors, light. It interests me how they take in all of what they see even though they don’t get it, they see it and feel it. I love the toddlers as well. They are fun and open to discover all the new things around them. The 10,11 year olds are great too because they’ll begin to speak their minds. The teens are great too because they can of course speak their mind. I can see it being really difficult for the teens to be considered a kid still so when I visit them I really try to make it clear that I know they aren’t babies and I treat them their age offer to hang out or if they want to watch a movie or maybe play a game.

Today I also spent a bit of time with a two year old little boy who I have been visiting with frequently.

Today he had a surgery of some kind so the parents were constantly praying. Mom told me her boy is always happy when I come to see him.

I am so happy to help, most of all that the parents see that and realize he is a happy boy. I asked her if there was anything they needed she asked

me to pray for him. I am sending my prayers and wishes to the universe! Please give this baby more time with us. Please help him be pain free.

Please help him be strong.

Grateful

Hey guys,

Tonight I am thinking about the sweet homeless man that I see around in the city!

This man always so kind and friendly to all he sees. It is so damn cold here and when I saw him I felt so bad.

It truly breaks my heart to think this man and anyone else is stuck on the streets freezing in the cold!

I see he has belongings of some sort and I don’t know his whole story. I just see he’s freezing.

I saw him today when I went to get some exercise and took a little walk. The cold hurt me and I was nervous because of the ice patches on the streets and sidewalk. But then I see this man and I feel so frekin grateful.

I really want to help him! When I passed him we said hello to each other and I asked him if there is anything he needs. He said he could use some more sleeping bags. This poor guy! I told him I would see if I have any. I  am trying to justify buying him a few blankets.

When I was on way back from my walk I made a point of  seeing him. I got him a hot chocolate to at least give him something! He was so thankful and I told him to keep warm!

I still want to try to find him blankets!!!!

 

****I am so grateful to have my family, my friends, my health, my home, and heat!!!!!!
