Big boy haircut and other exciting news!

What a great day! We went and saw Uncle Dennis, then got our haircut and then I had a doctor's appointment. All was well. Dennis got in last night and Sammy kept saying his name the whole way over and started playing with him right away. Then we got his hair cut and he was so good. He just sat there and acted like he couldn't care less. He looks so grown up with his hair now:)

I had a doctors appointment today. The doctor is still pretty concerned which is understandable, but I am just getting more and more relieved with each day tht we make it through with no problems. She did more blood work and reminded me again of how minimal activity is so vitally important. She scheduled some special testing for monday of next week to make sure that Sophie is maturing appropriately and still growing. I guess with all of my issues at any point she can stop growing or the placenta can stop working as well as it should. I think after that we will have a more definitive plan as far as when we will deliver and stuff. We also talked about having to turn her so she is no longer breech (external version), something that I have heard is extremely painful. But please start praying that she either turns herself or that they can do it so that I don't need to have a c-section.

Hi! I keep an eye on your growing family too! First hair cut for your little guy! I love Blakley's messy mop of curls and don't plan on cutting it - well I may cut off one curl for safe keeping! I have been thinking about you and how hard it would be to be on bed rest. Having two is amazing but I won't lie - I am exhausted and sometimes sad becuase I feel like I can't give each of them the attention I would like to. Feel free to e-mail me anytime! Hang in there and be strong - this too shall pass. Niki

Your Sammy is precious and congratulations on your little girl. I bet you can't wait to meet her. Isn't GOD good! Thank you for taking the time to post, I love it when people do. I haven't gotten a chance to completely read your preemie was Sammy? It sounds like he is doing great now. Why does he have to have transfusions? Are you on bedrest now? How's your blood pressure. Keep those FEET don't want to see what happens when you don't...whew...its not pretty. About the bows...some of my friends picked them up at a local kids shop called itsy bitsy spider. I'm planning on roping my mom and mother in law in on making some. I love the tights for the head band so it doesn't cut into their head. I'll check out the bow site you mention...thanks. Keep me posted on your progress and GOD BLESS. Jenn
