A Little Busy

Ya'll, would you believe it if I told you that Ellie is one month today?  I'm just in disbelief that this precious gift has been with our family for an entire month.  It breaks my heart how fast it's going.  I've said it once, and I'll say it again, knowing she is my last baby makes it so different.  I am trying to soak in every last detail of infancy - every cry, every snuggle, every expression.  Its so fleeting!

You would think that this would mean I would be up to date on the blog.  Well, I sort of am.  I have various drafts saved.  Some are pictures awaiting words, some posts are partially written and others are simply waiting to be edited.  In any case, the past four and half weeks have been some of the most precious of my life, and I fully intend to document them in detail.

Between trying to adjust to our new normal, a quick visit to see my Papaw, lots of visits from family and friends, and plenty of doctor's visits, I'm  just a little behind.  My goal is to be caught up before I go back to work on April 15th.

 I guess we could start with an update on Ellie.  She had to return to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital for a follow up on her kidneys.  This meant a test where dye was run into her bladder.

We were worried that the procedure would be horrible, but she took it like a champ.  The worse part was when they took her clothes off and held her legs down.  Bless her heart, she is so cold natured, and actually broke out in a cold sweat.  Lucky for her, the nurses were wonderful and quickly wrapped her in a heated blanket for the rest of the test.

Praise the Lord we received a wonderful report and Ellie DOES NOT have reflux of the bladder.  We go back in six months for an ultrasound to test the fluid levels on the kidneys, but if all is well we will be cleared. Thank you for all your prayers!!

We left Vanderbilt and had a late lunch before shopping at Ory Mills.  It was tons of fun to have a little date with Eric, and we got lots of clothes for Eli this summer!  

Of course coming home to Eli was the best part of the day...even if he did give me a run for my money!!
