About Me

My photo
I am a mommie of 3 wonderful, wild and crazy little boys and I reside with my family in the quaint sea-side town of Mukilteo, Washington on the beautiful Puget Sound. I have always dreamed of owning my own business, and being able to outfit little ones with unique and adorable designs. After years of just having a dream, I decided to fulfill that dream, and put my passion into beautiful handmade clothing, shoes, and accessories designed with the highest quality textiles and trims. I launched Love Baby J in the spring of 2009. I hope I can make Love Baby J one of your favorite baby and children's boutique's to shop!!!

Sweet Layla Grace... Please say a prayer for Layla and Her Family

LAYLA GRACE

Layla has always been a healthy child, 80th percentile for weight, a great eater, a great sleeper. She is sweet as pie and a little cuddle monkey (she won’t let you put her down!). She has a very advanced vocab for her age which really helps us manage her pain and give her what she needs as her care continues.



Layla had a great 15 month checkup. At around 16 months her sleep habits and appetite started to change and she started to become more irritable. Mid March appetite began to decrease. At the time we thought we were dealing with a “picky eater”. Beginning of May Layla woke up one morning with a swollen eye. We took her to the doctor and she was treated for an ear infection and the doctor said the swelling was just a result of the ear infection. At the same time we noted that her belly was hard and somewhat distended. She had not had a bowel movement for a few days and we were concerned that she was becoming constipated.



The next day we took her to the pediatrician who put her on Mirilax over the weekend and told us to call back Monday. By Monday morning she was not eating at all, still no dirty diaper, her activity level had decreased and was rubbing her belly and lower back and saying “owie”.



Our pediatrician referred us to a GI specialist to see why she was so constipated and wasn’t eating. On Thursday May 7th as we sat in GI specialists office expecting to be told that Layla would need some kind of treatment for constipation we instead hear words like “Cancer” and “Leukemia”. A series of X-rays and tests were ordered and we were sent home to wait on the results.



That evening about five minutes after we walked in the door we got an urgent call from the GI specialist telling us that the test results were in, that things were not good and that we were to bring Layla into the ER immediately and that a team of doctors would be waiting for us.



Layla has a massive cancerous tumor (Stage 4 Neuroblastoma) in her abdomen. It extends from above her left kidney, around her side, over her belly and wraps around her aorta. In addition, the cancer is in her bone marrow.



Our sweet Layla went from normal happy and healthy to lethargic, in pain, and skin and bones in a matter of a week and a half.

Beauty Pageants Dropping In Popularity?

clipped from www.upi.com

LINWOOD, N.J., Jan. 30 (UPI) -- The annual Miss America pageant is dropping in popularity and TV ratings and participants blame the changing cultural tide in the United States.

Entertainment Weekly online reported the 2009 Miss American pageant only drew 3.5 million viewers, down from the 26.7 million who watched the event in 1991. Actor Mario Lopez, who is hosting this year's pageant Saturday night, blames the atrophy on an abundance of beautiful women in other arenas.

Current Miss America Katie Stam, 23, laments the pageant's low ratings.

"We had the most amazing connection with the pageant. It was such a big deal to us," Stam said of her childhood experiences watching the beauty pageant.
