A quick note from Steph

I know this blog is for Randi, but I lost a very good friend and co-worker this week and wanted to share with you a quote that he lived by everyday.

What lies behind us and what lies before us
are tiny matters compared to what lies within us,
anything less than your best is to Sacrifice the gift.

I love you Jordan and will miss you everyday.

The polls are now closed and the winner is....

It is official! A whopping 14 people voted, and 2 of those were my mommy and daddy. You won't believe it but it ended in a tie. 7 votes for "Rudolph the Rednosed Randi-deer" and 7 votes for "Randi the Rednosed Reindeer" so in this great democracy we live in, I decided to let Cooper cast the final vote...
After taking his time and deliberating amongst his favorite chew toys, he said that he didn't care and just wanted his house back. So I guess I get to make the final decision. And I chose neither...."I didn't ask to be put in this costume, I did'nt ask to have my nose painted red with lipstick. All I want is my bottle of milk and a comfortable place to sleep. Well one out of two aint bad!

It's finally Christmas Eve!!!

I woke up this morning and went down the stairs,
I found Kada the Elf beside my daddy's big chair.He'd played with my toys and left them all out,
I then noticed Dolly, and she was worn out.By the look on their face, I bet that swing was a rocking,
I was off to the store for some last minute shopping!
While we were gone, he partied some more,
I entered the house and found a mess on my floor.In my diaper he sat, doesn't he know those are for me,
I hope it was clean and not full of my pee!I must say farewell to Kada the Elf,
But next year he'll return to sit on my shelf.
And Kada tonight, to Santa please say:
"Merry Christmas to all from Randi Brooks Gay"

What should I call myself today?

free pollsWhat should my reindeer name be?
Rudolph the Rednosed Randi-Deer
Randi the Rednosed Reindeer

Day 2 with my new friend...

This morning I woke to a crazy little clatter,
I looked out my crib to see what was the matter...
When what did I see?
My new little friend was looking at me...Kada must have had fun, he never did say...
But in some of my clothes, I saw he did play.
While at day care, all dressed up in red...
The thoughts of Kada, danced in my head.
When I returned home, I realized Kada has no fear...
That brave, little guy was hanging from the chandelier.Kada is crazy, but I think he is swell...
and hopefully my behavior to Santa he'll tell.Tomorrow's Christmas Eve, so I will be my best...
I can't wait to wake up and check out Kada's mess!

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve!

Just wanted to let everyone know that tomorrow is Christmas Eve! So as mommy and daddy have done for all of the exciting holidays that have occurred since I was born, they continue to dress me up in my festive holiday garments....

Here I am after daddy got me dressed this morning.As always, I was the cutest baby at daycare this morning. Here I am with my teacher Asya.

Dont forget to check in tonight and see what that crazy Elf Kada did this aren't gonna believe it!

Let me tell you about my big day

We came home from school and found a surprise...
an Elf on the shelf was spotted by my big blue eyes.
It's small and it's tiny barely comes to my knees...
that silly little elf was climbing our tree.
My Mommy and Daddy both read me my book...
then a close up picture you know that we took
The tradition began on this cold wintry day...
the first GAY elf is now welcome to stay.

His name is now Kada and for Santa he'll spy.
You better say good things Elf, or out the door you will fly!

Check back tomorrow for some more fun...
and see what shananigans Kada has done!

3 days until my 1st christmas

4 Months old today

Well, it seems like Jamie and I just brought Randi home from the hospital, but today is her 4 month birthday. Happy Birthday Baby Cakes!!!
We went for her 4 month checkup on Friday and she is doing extremely well. The Dr. said we are in a world of trouble with her since she already rolls over both ways, is in the process of mastering sitting up and she is trying to craw. Anyway, here are the results from the visit.

Weight: 11lb 13oz – 25% for her age
Height: 22 inches – 97% of shortness…ie 3% for her age
Head: 39cm – 5% for her age

Dr Queen is projecting her to be about 5’ 2” so she should be taller than me. YAY!
