Latest Happenings...

I know it has been awhile, but I've been a little busy, and extremely tired to blog much.

Anyway...

My sister Aunt "Nell" flew in Saturday to spend some time with us, and William has thoroughly been enjoying all the attention she's been giving him. Of all the people I know, she has the most energy, keeping up with W just fine! Poor kid has been crashing into bed at night, completely exhausted!

Here we are, taking the kids for a walk Sunday afternoon.



My lovely sister also decided that William NEEDED a Hungry, Hungry Hippos game. Great. Just great. A loud, annoying game. At least it doesn't require any batteries!

On another note, Abby had yet another appointment at the pediatrician to check her bilirubin, and it's still not coming down. Today the reading, via a subcutaneous test, was 9.9, not a significant change from the previous times. We know, from a recent blood test, that her levels don't indicate anything seriously wrong, but we are searching as to why the levels continue to stay a little elevated, even though she's over a month old already. We've been referred to a pediatric gastroenterologist, so hopefully we'll get some answers soon. Other than that, she's a whopping 6 pounds, 12 ounces! At last Monday's check she was just 6 pounds. Gaining rather nicely. :-)

Glad you have some more support with you to redirect some of William's energy. Good job Abby gaining weight! Hope you get an answer soon, and that it's no big deal.

Wow! I can't believe she is 6 pounds already. She's growing fast!
