I think I should get the worst blogger award! I don't know whats up with me but I just haven't had the motivation to blog in the longest time! I have half put together posts about our trips and interesting things but I just can't get myself to sit down and finish them.
I will admit I've been a bit distracted trying to quilt Amber a little snuggle blankie for Christmas. To tell you the truth it's not working out to well. Quilting requires basic math skills....skills that I lack so it's a bit frustrating. Making your own pattern is also something I don't recommend if you've never done it before either. I have a bad habit of biting off more than I can chew on every project I take on.
What else is going on? Well Amber's glasses are still not in. Our giant meeting is still on for the 26th of this month but I still don't have a time of day.
Thursday morning we'll be having a meeting with the palliative care team that I would rather eat nails than go to. After the meeting we get to register with the hospital and temporarily move into the cardiology floor. Friday (at some point) Amber will be put under and have her heart catheterization and both MRIs. We've been told that it will take at least 6 hours and we might go home on Saturday/Sunday. I can not even express to you how much I'm not looking forward to this. When it comes to surgeries I feel more at peace because I know it's something she really needs and she'll benefit from. This just makes me feel uneasy. I know they need more data to err on the side of safety but I also know the answer isn't going to change. Even if the tests show her heart isn't as bad as they thought it was right now/the next few months is the best time frame to do surgery. We know she did well in June and they're guessing not much has changed in 4 months but in 6 months to a year things might not go as well. I really just wish it was next Monday...maybe.
I have been motivated to work out the last two days. I'm not expecting to see any results since my diet consists of large portions of comfort food and desserts/candy :)
Amber has been getting in on the action too. This was her first taste of a Kit Kat.
She seemed a little wary at first.
Either that or she was telling us to give her a break!
(sorry I'm a sucker for puns)
Making sure she didn't gage herself
She LOVED it!
She's so smart too she sucks the chocolate off one end and then flips it over and sucks the chocolate off the other end! I think she gets her chocolate eating skills from her mama's side of the family!
Here is the other reason why I should get the horrible blogger award! I've been so caught up in my moodiness about this week and my failed project that I completely forgot to tell you some of the biggest news ever!
1) The other day Amber moved her head side to side while on her tummy!
2) While on her tummy I lifted her under her chest and she put her arms out in front of her and supported her
head (for less than a minute)
3) Today in the car and the other morning she said "MUMMY"!! It's more like Bubby kind of like how she
said Ayee before Daddy
4) Sunday morning she rolled over! She was laying on a towel on the table so she had a lip to roll off of. She
did not like it at all by the way!
I think that's it, I can't believe I almost forgot to tell you! Now that it's almost Wednesday I think I'll go to bed and forget about proof reading this. And you all have permission to send me hate mail if I forget Wordless Wednesday again :)
