It helps that she’s so adorable…

Posted by Sandra on August 7, 2009

We had an impromptu shoot yesterday looking for artistic graffiti in downtown Columbus. We stopped by the museum and by the arts college and snapped a few shots. Girlfriend knows how to work the camera!





All three of them got cute for me a few times too:

Miss Ayla’s Week…

Posted by Sandra on December 6, 2008

Has certainly been busy.  Taking her first steps on Thursday (Dec 4th) and now two teeth!!

And, in true family form, she’s defied the “norm” and it’s her two top teeth that burst through first.  Just a few weeks from her first birthday, and she’s making so many changes!  It will certainly be strange to see a toothy smile, after all these months of gummy grins!

Really, does it get any better than a little 4-month old hand on your nose, and a little giggle from a 3 year old as they slowly wake you up with smiles and laughter for another beautiful day?

No, it doesn’t.

Our Alternative Vaccination Schedule

Posted by Sandra on January 2, 2008

I’m making the vax post a page on it’s own, due to it’s popularity.  05/29/09: THE SEPARATE MMR VAX WILL BE AVAILABLE AGAIN!  SEE DR. SEARS’ SITE HERE FOR INFORMATION!  You can also find information on the MMR vax here.  The separate MMR is not available anymore, as of the beginning of 2009.  Contact Merck and demand that they service the hundreds of thousands of families that want these vax’s spread out.


We are following a more modified version than Dr. Sears (posted here).  My doc has actually moved a few out longer, giving even less at some appointments.

And we will never give the Rotavirus, Flu, or Chicken Pox vax, and until and unless they perfect the problems with the Gardasil, my daughters won’t get near that one either.

Dr. Bob’s Alternative Vaccine Schedule
2 months – DTaP, Rotavirus
3 months – Pc, HIB
4 months – DTaP, Rotavirus
5 months – Pc, HIB
6 months – DTaP, Rotavirus
7 months – Pc, HIB
9 months – Polio, Flu (Do 2 doses of flu between 6 and 12 months if nearing flu season, then yearly tereafter, up to age 5, as flu season approaches. Try to use only a mercury-free shot. If its not available, don’t get it that year, or get the nasal spray)
12 months – Mumps, Polio
15 months – Pc, HIB
18 months – DTaP, Chickenpox
21 months – Flu
2 years – Rubella, Polio
2 1/2 years – Hep B, Hep A
3 years – Hep B, Masles, Flu
3 1/2 years – Hep B, Hep A
4 years – DTaP, Polio, Flu
5 years – MMR (can group together for this booster)
6 years – Chickenpox
12 years – Tdap, HPV
12 years, 2 months – HPV
13 years – HPV, Meningococcal (once the Meningococcal vaccine is approved for age 2, Dr. Bob will move it there and delay hep B by 6 months)
