Hayden has her first tooth! It finally popped through after days of grumpiness and constant chewing of everything. It is on the bottom on her left side. It's so cute! Am I supposed to brush it?

She is also very close to being mobile. She gets on all fours and rocks, but not much movement that way. Chip says that the motor is running but she's stuck in neutral! She can army crawl, though. Another funny thing, she gets on all fours and then straightens her back legs and hops. It is hilarious!

She is getting better and better at sitting up by herself! If only she could get back up herself after tipping over.

"Call Liberty for your diabetus testing supplies..."

As some people already know, our cat, MOM, has diabetes or diabetus as we would say... She was diagnosed on June 15. We went back to the vet on the 17th for her first glucose curve to see how much insulin she needed... I went there to learn to give the shots (twice a day!) and find out that she needs half of a unit. As we are pulling out of the vet's office, another car and I slam into each other because shs is driving in the center lane... so, I wreck my car with the baby, my sister, Emily, and the cat in it. Thank goodness everyone was ok. My car- not so much. $9000 worth of damage! Anyway, Mom had to go back the vet for another glucose curve one week later and they tell us that she needs 1 unit twice per day and to come back in a week to see how that works. So, we go back again... This time they tell us she needs 2 units twice per day and come back in two weeks... Did I mention that this is costing about $100 each time we go, not counting the $500 we spend when she was diagnosed. So, I took her yesterday and now we are at 3 units twice per day! AND we have to go back in a week! UGH!!! So frustrating!

Our pool is done!

So, our pool is finally done. We are trying to learn how to maintain it... Of course, no one has the same opinion on how to care for it. But we are having a lot of fun already. Hayden loves the water! She is already fearless!

Replacing Jelly Beans

I am going to cancel our baby jelly beans page and post on this... this is free! Hopefully, I will be better at keeping up with this than I have been at the other.
