Christmas morning with a 17 month old!

Merry Christmas!  

Daughter loves her new pillow book, kitchen, table, and little people Disney princess set. We need to get rid of some of her toys!

She loves pillows!  It's crazy!  So I was very excited when I found the pillow book for her :)

She's starting to fold her hands on her own before we tell her that we're going to pray. 

She loves patty cake. She only claps and waits to be tickled, but she smiles the whole time. 

She enjoys brushing her hair. She usually just knots it up more, but it's cute to see her try. 

She likes to brush her hair with mama's brush. When she can't find that,she grabs Mookie's brush....

She enjoys getting her teeth brushed. 

She has a molar on top and one on bottom on her left side.

Mock transfer passed!

For some reason I was nervous about passing... Things have changed (they were weird enough to begin with!) but I managed to pass "with flying colors".

Anyway, we sort of made it into an anniversary trip. We had a whirlpool suite and a day to relax and go hiking before my appointment. 

So we had a lot of fun :)

I didn't sleep well either night. We flew and I hate flying. And then the stress about the mock....

If you don't want to read about my strange anatomy, stop here. 

Anyway, as always, my anatomy surprised them (even though they've been in there before) so they had some difficulties. Dr Keenan had a resident there who was taking her first shot at the procedures with a retroverted uterus. Ouch. I understand that she needs to learn, and I'm ok that she had to learn on me, but I'm in pain. 

Yesterday I was pretty miserable. And we had a layover that took over 3 hours... And there was ice on the road when we finally got back to ND. We didn't get home until after midnight. 

This morning I woke up in pain. Bad pain. I took more ibuprofen. 

De Keenan prescribed prometrium for my  weaning off the Estrace. But for that I need to make it to a pharm... So it's not going to happen until tomorrow at the earliest. 

My parents are on their way out with Daughter. So excited to see her!  I'm in a lot of pain... So hopefully she's up for a lot of snuggling and reading today.

What a day!

I woke up at 3 am and couldn't sleep.  Nerves about the weekend and Monday, I guess.  I often have trouble sleeping when there's something to be nervous about...

Anyway, got back to sleep around 6:30 and figured I'd get an hour in before Daughter wakes. 

My alarm for Estrace woke me at 9!  I checked the monitor- Daughter was still sleeping!  Wow.

9:00- let Mookie out
9:20- Daughter wakes, I smell pee.
9:21- notice her diaper is around her ankle in her sleeper
9:25-changed and in new jammies (she'll get a bath shortly, so why dress her?)
9:30-breakfast and laundry (the bedding isn't going to clean itself!)
10:00-supposed to do conference call.  Postponed to next week!  Go to run bath...
10:01- step in dog poo outside the bathroom.  Apparently Mookie couldn't wait until I woke at 9...
10:05- clean dog poo.  Run bath.
10:15- get Daughter in bath.
10:30- get Daughter dressed, let Mookie outside.
10:45- hear the UPS truck... rush out to get Mookie back inside.
10:48- Our UPS guy tells me how lucky our dog is because he actually got run over!  Avoided the tires, but ran right under the truck!
10:50- come back inside with packages, smell something...
10:51- notice poo on Mookie
10:55-run another bath
10:56- say "no!" when Daughter opens the toilet to swish her hand around...
10:57- wash Daughter's hands
10:58- console Daughter who is then bawling
11:00- get Mookie into the bath.  Try to keep Daughter out of his face.

Goodness.  It's not even noon!  God, grant me patience!

Good thing both Daughter and Mookie are so cute!

Estrace... grrrr

I had forgotten the wonderful side effects.  Without being too gross and spelling them all out, I'll just say that I have most of them.

But my mock/consult is next week! 

And Daughter and I have colds.  Mat thinks he is getting it, too.

Pinwheels on the Horizon

I finished the quilt with Horizon by Kate Spain for Moda.

I named it Pinwheels on the Horizon

Not the best pic, but I was in a rush. 

Now to give it to my friend :)
