I'm going to be an aunt (again)!

DH's sister is pregnant!

She has been suffering from PCOS and has been gearing up for her first IUI after clomid and other drugs weren't cutting it.  She got lucky and it worked on the first try.  She announced last night that she is seven weeks preggers. 

We knew the exact date of her IUI procedure and when we didn't hear much from her and she avoided family gatherings, we figured the news was not good.  Fortunately we were wrong. 

It's amazing how much better I can handle pregnancy announcements now.  If this were three years ago, I'm sure no matter how happy I would have been for her, it still would have stung.  She was seeing our old RE, Dr. G.  He even called her himself to let her know the good news. 

Hoping for all the best and that Maddy gets to meet her next cousin this June!

Thank You Kindermusic. . .

. . .for Maddy's first cold of her life, my first cold of the season, a cold for both grandmas and a cold for her three month old cousin.  You really are the gift that keeps on giving.

Actually, it wasn't all that bad.  Everyone's colds were mild.  If it weren't for Maddy's runny nose, I wouldn't have known she was sick.  She was grumpy sure, but she's grumpy an awful lot so that alone wasn't a clue.  She ran a very mild fever one night.  And I am proud that she made it almost 13 months without getting sick.  Maybe all that breastfeeding paid off.

The music class is once a week and she loves it!  She loves the other babies more than the music.  She's super social and crawls over and kisses the other little girls.  Hence the cold I'm sure.  That and the shared musical toys.  Gross!  Last week's class had 12 kids . . this week's 3. 

Must have been a plague for sure.
