One foot in front of the other.

We got the news we were hoping to hear on Friday. Lupron was ordered and received (and for only $10 - thank you Blue Cross Blue Shield!), and blood work came back clean. Two major hurdles down! About a thousand more to go. But as my dad says...we will jump off those bridges when we get there. I think this is the last I am going to mention about this on here. IVF takes up so much of my mental energy...and I only have so much to give! Between a crazy busy 10 month old (how did that happen?!?), construction workers in our house every day, David being super busy with work and school and therefore is hardly ever get the picture. I need to focus on the things I can control and let go of the things I can't.

That being said - I have plenty to blog about still! Paige is amazing. She is still loving to eat. Current favorites: mac n cheese (we have to shovel it in her mouth), nurtigrain bars, carrots, mashed potatoes, chicken, black beans, and yogurt. And water from her sippy-cup.

She is still in the crawling/cruising phase. She hasn't shown any interest in taking independent steps. She really doesn't even like to stand on her own. But what have learned from reading this blog: you can't compare your kid to other kids! Okay now repeat after me: you can't compare your kid to other kids!

Paige loves her daddy and gets excited when he gets home from work. She also loves her puppies. I am pretty sure 'puppy' is going to be her first word.

We have started teaching her body parts. Not the gross ones yet : ) We say, "Paige, where is your nose?" She smiles and crawls away. Ha! She will get it someday though : )
I have come to the following conclusion: footed jammies above size nine months live in some parallel universe. They don't live at Babies R' Us, Target, Macy's, Dillards, or JC Pennies. Therefore, these are our new jammies. Because she is in a sleep sack, I know she stays warm.

Bug with her date on Valentines Day. This was from my Iphone. Love those two.
I let Paige nap on me the other day. We stayed in our jammies all day, and I managed to get this picture of her sweet face. It is moments like this that make all the hard times worth it.

Have a wonderful week!!

GL with this IVF cycle! I'm hoping it's a BFP too :) The only place I can find footed jammies is Gymboree. My babies are 6 months and I don't know how they will stay in the 6-12 month jammies from there because they already fit. Anyway, I just wanted to throw it out there in case you wanted to check out there jammies! FYI: this is KnockMeUp from the bump :)
