Things have been hectic!

Let's see, after our camping trip we headed to the airport bright and early to make our 7 AM flight to Buffalo, NY!

While we were there, Kaitlyn had a blast meeting her Aunt Wende and cousins Kimberly and Lauren.  They played and played and played.  We were able to go to Niagra Falls and into Canada thanks to our spiffy new passports!  It was really beautiful.

After we spent a week in Buffalo, we headed to Alabama to visit family.  Kaitlyn met her new BFF she says in her cousin Jake.  She had a blast with everyone that we saw, loved the water park, fireworks, and most of all the family we saw.  We weren't even on the plane yet when she began asking when we could go back!

We got back in time for Kaitlyn to have 2 doctor's appointments.  Both the ENT and the Allergist agreed that the best course of action for her is to have her tonsils and adenoids removed.  The allergist also started some blood work to see if we could find out what is causing the sinuses to become so inflamed so that we can try and prevent further inflammation once the tonsils are out and hopefully avoid sinus surgery in the future.  She was so brave during her blood test and didn't even cry one tear.  The earliest they can do the surgery is August 9.  There is a 2 week recovery time and she starts school August 12.  So, we are indecisive on what we are going to do.  We don't want her to miss the first 2 weeks of school, meeting new friends, getting used to a new school and all of that, but we also don't want to have her suffer longer than she needs to. 

Yesterday morning I had my bi-weekly ultrasound for Samantha.  She was measuring at 15 ounces, which is great!  She is moving around all of the time.  We didn't get any pictures this time because she has her spine lined up to my belly and her fists in her eye balls and made it pretty hard to get a good one.

It looks like we won't be able to do a Dr. Seuss nursery like how I wanted.  The bedding is no longer available and I don't want to pay an exorbitant amount just because I waited too long.  So, this is what I'm looking at now :)

But, since it is so much pink, I want to do light blue walls I think and incorporate a lot of the other colors in the bedding.
