The first draw was for 6 vials...the second for 1. Because my mom's diabetic my GP is checking my fasting blood sugars (and I had gestational diabetes with both pregnancies) and my 2 hours post meal blood sugars. Well, having a mom who tests every morning...I had her poke me and test on her machine...fasting came up at 6.9 and my 2 hour came up at 5.9...so totally within the normal range...we'll see what the lab concocts! In any case, my u/s is now scheduled for next Tuesday for my abdomen and thyroid gland. Then I should be all done, medically speaking, for a year!
After our not-so-much-nap time (Sam slept in the truck on the way to the second blood draw for an hour, and DJ did NOT nap with G'ma like I thought he did) I took the kids to the park. It was windy by our house so I didn't want to do the water park....and the regular park is just fine sometimes! DJ had a fun time chasing all the other kids there...I do wish however, that he'd stop ROARING at other kids in greeting....seriously?!?!?! It's so caveman! Samantha on the other hand was practicing her balance....oh my word! There's this fake log rolling thing (for lack of better words) that when you stand on it, rolls like a log in the water...and you're supposed to run on it (??) or balance on it...in any case, SamSam's been drawn to it like a moth to a flame! Every time we go to the park lately, she runs for it! If there's other kids on it, she waits her turn! *shakes head*
Well today...she got herself up ON it and stood there (slightly rocking) for 7 whole seconds!!! I was dumbfounded and started rethinking her whole career!! Do we have a gymnast on our hands!?!? Every time she'd fall off, she'd turn around and get right back on it!!! One other mom even asked me how old she was and was stunned when I said 15 months! She absolutely LOVED playing on this thing!!! What it must be like to be 1....lol
I did manage to snap this cute pic today too....its VERY rare for me to get one of the two together...sitting nicely...and smiling even!!!! Sam's grin is cheesy, but still present!!! Not bad for two kids who haven't napped well eh?
OK...I promised myself I'd get off the computer at midnite (NOW!) So I'll end this post...I did NOT crack open Breaking Dawn...nor did I end up reading my other book last nite...I spent way too much time on Farm Town last nite...so tonite...I'm going early! Sam slept til 7 this morning and I woke up to her cooing in her crib...best sounds to wake up to EVER!!! So much better than crying!
Til next time...ciao!
P.S...I finished the slippers for Sam....so I'll take pix tomorrow and post them once they're felted! I can't wait!!!
