5 Million Dollar Bra?

We received the Victoria's Secret fashion show catalogue in the mail the other day...not really sure why but we did. There is a bra in the magazine that costs 5 million dollars. Why would anyone want an undergarment that is made out of diamonds and rubies? I think we already threw the magazine away or I would put the description of it on here. I am pretty sure that anyone that would buy such a thing is just showing off their money and should send a check of about 2 million to Rocky River Community Church so that we can build our building. Wouldn't that be nice?!

The past few days...

Bria went to physical therapy this morning for the last time! The physical therapist said that she should be the model child for their office because she has done so well. Her neck strength has improved so much and her head is rounding out very nicely. Thank goodness it was the last time going because today and the last time we went 3 weeks ago, she cried the entire time we were there. I don't know if it was because Travis wasn't with us or what, but Erin (the doctor) felt so bad that she made her cry! 
So now that PT is done, I have to go get a Bumbo(?) seat for Bria to sit in so that she can get strong in her trunk area so that she can sit up on her own. She's growing too fast!! I can't believe that she is almost 6 months old. Time flies when you're having fun, right?! I'm having a blast being a mom...even though I definitely need a break sometimes!! Thanks to my husband, I get Sunday afternoon naps. Gotta love that!! 

We went to Liberty for Homecoming this past weekend. I must say that I love going back to visit! There are so many memories that we have there. It's amazing how much the campus and area surrounding the school has changed sooo much in just a year and a half since we moved to Charlotte. Bria got a sticker when we were there that said 'When I grow up, I am going to Liberty.' I hope that that is true. I wold love for her and any future children that we have to grow up and go to LU. While we were there, we ran into some friends we hadn't seen in at least 2 1/2 years. It was so good to reminisce and catch up like old times. 

Last night we went to see Fireproof with a bunch of the youth and their parents from church. We probably had about 35 r2c2 people out of the 45 people in the theater. Fireproof is such a good movie, even if your not married! I didn't really get to hear how the students liked it but I saw a few with red eyes from crying when we were walking out! Go see Fireproof!!

It is a cool, windy day today. A perfect day to stay inside and drink hot chocolate and maybe carve pumpkins or something. Too bad I have to go to work! 

I can't wait for Halloween! Travis and I don't have costumes but Miss Bria is going to be a chili pepper!! She's going to be the cutest chili pepper ever!!

The Doctors

First of all, can I just say that I LOOOVE the show The Doctors!! It helps to have Travis (from the show the Bachelor) as the host! Just kidding... even if someone else hosted it I would still love it! I would recommend this show to everyone. You just have to watch it! It is a talk show with 4 doctors (an emergency room dr., an OB-GYN, a pediatrician, and a plastic surgeon) and they have different topics each day. A word of warning though, they talk about pregnancy, implants, and scary diseases kids can get- A LOT! I admit. I am addicted. The reason why I am writing about this is because I am bringing Bria to the pediatrician again and will miss my show. I DVR it everyday and today I will have to take advantage of it.
I was at the church office this morning and realized Bria had what I thought was diaper rash, but I wasn't sure because it didn't look like any diaper rash I had ever seen. I asked Tiffani to look and it and she said it looked like ring worm. So, with that said, we are headed to the doctor again for the third (THIRD!!) time this week. The second appointment this week was on Monday and was 2.5 hours long so I am over the doctor's office, but we have to get this taken care of. Travis (my husband...not the host of my new favorite show) :-) is in Atlanta until tomorrow night so I am playing single parent for a few days. The last time he was out of town for a couple days, I got sick. I've decided that he can't go out of town without us anymore!!

So if you are reading this, please pray for my baby girl. She is only 5 months old and has been to the doctor more than I have in my entire life!! From a cold, to ear infections, to a flat head, to ring worm. She's had quite the past few months! Poor thing. It makes me think, "What am I doing wrong? Why can't I keep my child healthy?" I know kids get sick but for Bria it is just one thing after another!
