Well, I sure fell off the blogging bandwagon didn't I?
These last few weeks have just flown by. The big kids all had Spring Break for two weeks. Of course, the boys had all kinds of plans. Taylor, was very content to be with her friends, though. So, the boys, Sami and I were quite busy. Taylor did accompany us to Tucson where we got to visit Pete's work and meet all the nice people he spends his days with. After we left his office we had some lunch for Jesse's birthday and then went to a Diamondback's spring training game. Jesse said that the best part of the day was going to Daddy's work, though. haha
We also spent a day at the zoo, went swimming and played a lot with our neighbor friends. It was a great break but it went by way too fast! Now I am back to waking up kids, packing lunches and doing homework - blech! Plus, baseball season has begun and this year both boys are playing. Jesse is playing T-Ball and PJ is in Coach Pitch. This makes for very busy days for all of us. Tere are many times that they havve practices/games on the same day. But, luckily they are playing in the same field so I should be able to get them to everything okay.
Miss Sami Jean is also doing well. Pete was just commenting how she seems to have just taken off recently. She now weighs 9 pounds 1o ounces. So, it looks like she'll hit a gain of 2 pounds this month. She has also started to rool over! I am just in shock at this accomplishment! She is only 3.5 months old! I know Jesse was over 4 months before he rolled over! I just keep hearingthe NICU nurse's voice saying "somebody forgot to give her the message". Really, it must be true. She has no idea she is such a little peanut! In fact, yesterday when I took Jesse to school a few of the Mom's were just giggling at her because she was up on my shoulder holding her little head up just looking around at all of them. She's just so funny! She is really interested in her brothers these days - they are live entertainment. And, of course she just loves her big sister. Tay is getting so good with her now that she'll pick her up and hold her and talk to her. Sam just loves the attention!
As far as her birthmark goes things are holding steady. We started her back on the Propranolol - Friday will be two weeks. About an hour after giving her the second dose could see a drastic change in the color of her H. So, the color is definitely changed, and I'd say it's less puffy - maybe softer? So, if we can just hold steady at this point until it reaches the end of it's growth period we'll be doing great. We go back to Phx Children's on Thursday to see Dr. T and we'll se what he has to say. I'm guessing he'll be pleased and that we'll just keep haning out like this. Which is fine by me!
