Some updates

I forgot to mention that Big E began standing on the 21st. I found him standing next to the toilet and you can only guess what he was doing. He was having a grand ole time splish splashing in the water, ewwww. I ran to get my camera, but something is wrong with my memory card. It is corrupted or something, so I don't have a photo. That was a bummer!

In surrogacy news, I had an ultrasound done on Monday and the RE said that everything looked super. I had 12 follicles in one ovary and 10 in the other. We aren't using them, but the doctor checked them out because they are good indicator as to how well my reproductive system is working. I started taking estrogen that evening and I will have an U/S in Atlanta on 11/4. That U/S will reveal how well my body does with the drugs and I have my fingers crossed. This cycle is called a mock cycle. We aren't actually going to do the IVF, but we will go through the motions just to make sure that everything is working optimally.

I have been thinking about working part-time at our new Michael's teaching some scrapbook classes. They called yesterday and I am going to show them some work this evening. Hopefully, all will go well and I will be able to make a little bit of spending money ;)

I used to work for a store in Atlanta (actually Marietta) called The Scrapbook Store. I just got an email the other day saying that they had changed management. I was mortified! I loved Kathy and she was such a great owner. It was upsetting to know that she had sold out. BUT, then I found out that one of my co-workers from there bought it! Chanelle is the absolute coolest gal ever and she will do a great job. I have complete faith in her. I must admit that I am highly jealous of her new endeavor because the store totally rocks! Now I know that I am going to have to make a side-trip the next time I am in GA. Good luck girlfriend :)

Hayden slept in today rather than going to school. I don't know what his deal is, but he wouldn't get up. He slept til 10am! I am guessing that he didn't feel like going since he threw his banana up this morning. Poor guy. Regardless, he seems to feel okay is running around. I hope he isn't coming down with anything.
