I am so S-O-R-R-Y!!!

I have not posted on here in forever, it seems. Trust me, I haven't fell off the face of the Earth. My whole family has been sick over the past couple of weeks and I have been slack about updating the ole blog. I just haven't felt like it. It only seems to have been a bad cold, but it has been a rough ride for us and the kiddos. Hayden has been the worst. He has been out of school for a long time(until today). Last Friday, he refused to sleep and complained of his ear hurting. We let him sleep in our room and the poor thing didn't go to sleep until 3am! We went to the doctor and got Hayden some antibiotics the next day. He seems to be feeling a LOT better now and he finally returned to school today.

Unfortunately, our friends(the Wolfes) had a birthday party on Saturday for their daughter Carson, but we weren't able to go. I hated to miss it because it was her first and the kiddos would have had such a fun time.

Good news-We will be taking off for Atlanta on Friday. Our surrogacy journey is finally going to the next level. We will be visiting with the intended parents and the fertility clinic. I will get a saline ultrasound and some bloodwork done to make sure that I am healthy. Clayton will also have to have bloodwork done to make sure that he doesn't have something horrible (like HIV) that could be spread to me. I think that he has forgotten about that, so I am not going to remind him until we are there. He gets kinda squimish over having anything to do with needles. Good thing that he never had to hunch over and hold completely still while having a *SUPER HUGE* needle stuck in his spine for an epidural :P Heck, he had a hard time even being in the same room as me when I had it done, LOL. Anyway, we are hoping for the best. I hope that I am completely healthy and capable of doing this. I want to do it so badly. My dream of being a surrogate began when I was pregnant with Hayden, so I have mulled over it for years. I just want to give the gift of life to these wonderful people. Wish us luck!

The boys will be staying at home while we are gone. My Aunt Judy and Mom are coming up to babysit. Hayden is so psyched!
