Folks Festival and a busy 2 months

Folks Festival 2010

It's been a busy two months and it's long overdue for an update. Let's start with Alex. Our baby girl turned 2 years old since our last post. She is growing up and really looking more and more like a little girl everyday. She also sounds like a little girl and is saying so many new words. Her favorite word is still hi and she loves to repeat things mama and dada say, even the grunting sounds mama makes being 9 months pregnant and picking up things.

It took Alex 5 weeks to get over her awful summer virus we mentioned last time and we are happy to report we stayed hospital free. We squeezed in a long weekend trip to a music festival (near Boulder, CO) before she came down with another cold but she kicked that one in about a week. Bad news is she developed styes in her eyes that got extremely infected the past few weeks. We've seen numerous doctors and specialists and one doctor who was close to retiring age told us these were the worst styes he'd ever seen. After numerous attempts of antibiotics, ointments and eye drops we are back to hot compresses.

We moved into our new house at the end of July and are still working on getting settled in. It's been a lot of work to say the least and with both Jimmy and I working full time and getting ready for baby #2 it's been a slow process. We also had to set up all new therapist for Alex since we moved out of county which I was nervous about but they all seem great and we are looking forward to working with each of them.

As of today I'm 4 days past my due date and we are really anxious to meet our new addition. Guess she is really cozy and not wanting to enter the world quite yet. We'll keep you posted :)
