Random Brain Dump

So much going on....

*I stepped in dog poop while working out this morning.  I was at my mommy fitness class and we were running on a trail in the park.  I didn't realize I had dog poop all in my shoe until I was sitting in the Pediatrician's office and smelled it.  Don't judge.

*Kate decided to up my smelliness by adding spit up into the post work out sweat, dog poop mix.  Two words: Hot Mess. 

*We had a follow up appointment today and sweet girl is just not gaining weight (she only gained 2 ounces in 7 days).  Her spitting up is totally OOC.  I'm talking - we will need to replace a couch because it stinks and cannot be salvaged due to her projectile vomiting.  It literally just shoots right out of her mouth.  If we are standing up while holding her it will splatter on the floor.  We are hoping to figure something out before her lack of weight gain becomes a bigger issue.

*Due to some issues we had this weekend the did a finger prick and a white blood cell count.  The results came back wonky which sent us to the lab for lab work.  Um, they took blood from my child's arm.  No heel prick.  Straight up stuck a needle into her arm just like a big person.  I cried.  She went into hysterics.   Look at her little bandage.

*We have our Christmas Card photo shoot with Kelli Nicole tomorrow evening.  My outfit currently resides at the mall.  Meaning I have nothing to wear and will be shopping tomorrow.  Also, it hasn't rained in months but we have rain in the forecast tomorrow.  Just my luck.

*I have lost even more weight - yet my hips will not shrink.  I think they are forever wide - who am I kidding - wider (they were wide to begin with) thanks to my child.  She's totally worth it though.

*Alex's birthday is Friday!  We cannot wait to celebrate Daddy!! 

*We are heading back to Mississippi this month to meet all of our Mississippi family (my grandmother, uncles, cousins, and Alex's extended family)!

*Kate will be making her first trip to Disney World in about 1.5 months!  She will also be meeting my brother, sister, brother-in-law, and nephews during this visit!  We are pumped!  And I am terrified that I am flying with her by myself for the first time!  She will also experience (fake) snow for the first time at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party!  us Southerners take what we can get in the snow department!

Oh my gosh, I can't believe they actually took blood from her arm! Poor baby!! I think I read that you live in Houston! I live in south Houston, League City, but travel to Houston all the time for pretty much anything and everything! Your little girl is absolutely precious!!
