Baby News

At our 20 week appointment to confirm that we're adding a BOY to the family, we also found out he will have a unilateral cleft lip. We were blown away by the news. I think the most difficult part is knowing what road lies ahead for him. Otherwise, we got a good report from the specialist at 23 weeks. We go back for a 3D ultrasound of his little lip in January.

Back to School

It's that time of year again that leaves me wondering where exactly my summer has gone! Both boys are back in school. The hubby is busy getting the band ready for marching season and Ian is busy making new friends at big school. His behavior has been wonderful! His favorite things have been being line leader and getting to go in the treasure box for good behavior.

Round 3

Ian's summer vacation started off with a follow-up appointment with the ENT. What fun, right? In March Ian went to the doctor after an ear infection. At that time, they found that his right tube had come out and he had minor hearing loss in that ear. The left ear, on the other hand, was perfect. Today's visit was to determine if there was any fluid theft and if a new set of tubes was necessary. Again, the left ear was perfect, but the right had gotten worse. So, Ian will have his third set of tubes put in June 20. Unfortunately, he has hemophilia and no procedure is really simple. But, this will be the least invasive of surgeries, so hopefully he'll be up and going the next day. After all, I don't want anything to slow my little fish down during the summer.

In a nutshell

Since I've been a full-time mommy, wife, cleaner, cooker, and student, I've been slacking on the blog. But, now I'm done with classes so I can keep the few of you who do keep up with the blog updated...
