Just a Monday morning ramble

Well I'm booked for Nova Scotia and I'm super excited. I'll be flying with my mom so that will be nice to have her help with Makayla. I can't wait to see my grandparents. It has been 4 years since I have seen them and 6 years since my last trip to Nova Scotia. I am also happy they will get to meet their first great grandchild. Makayla has made us a 5 generation family again! Yay!

As I've said previously, Makayla has been pulling herself up to standing for awhile now. Well on Saturday she stood up for the first time by putting her hands against the wall. Yikes! That seems crazy early to me! I'm not sure if this is normal or not??? But it sure is freaking me out. My daughter needs to stop growing up so quickly.

Thursday was Makayla's appointment with the Plastic Surgeon. We had an x-ray done of her finger and all looks as expected. I signed the needed paperwork and now we are on the waitlist for a surgery date. There is about a 3 month wait, which is actually perfect since they don't like to do it sooner due to the anethestics that are used.

We are going to have a busdy week. Tuesday Makayla has her shots (ugh), Thursday we have an appointment to get Nexus, Dave's sister and brother-in-law are coming Thursday for the long weekend, and next Tuesday is Makayla's appointment with the Eye Specialist for her clogged tear duct.

Well I better run. I gotta get some stuff done while Makayla naps.

One more thing though, Makayla fell asleep for her morning nap in less than 2 minutes and she didn't utter a peep!!!! This is such an amazing improvment for her. I've struggled with her in the sleeping department since day 1.

K bye!

Very exciting about having 5 generations...the pressure is on me for that, since there is 1 remaining great-grandparent and I am the oldest great-grand child, plus the only one married.

You may have posted before, but what kind of surgery does Makayla need?

Nice about Nova Scotia! How long are you going for? When are you going? I didn't know Makayla needed surgery. I'll be praying all goes well! She seems to be growing very fast! Tell her to slow down! :P I would love to come see her and hold her, if she'd let me. :) Yay on the sleeping part!

She has an extra digit. It is attached to her thumb. We are just waiting on a date to have it removed.

Poor girl for the surgery! Hopefully it won't take too long to heal. I'm sure that'll be difficult for her being that she's so active and all! I love the pictures of her, she always looks so happy! I especially love the pictures of what you see when you get her in the morning. Reminds me of when my sister was a baby and I'd get her after nap time! Nothing is cuter than a rosy-cheeked just-woken-up baby!
