A few things...

1) Lilly's now 7 months old. Ah!

2) Here's an update on the teeth. It's crazy! All those teeth in limbo up there and the ONE tooth that is bothering her is on the bottom and can't even be seen. She chewed on my finger while laying in bed for 10 minutes tonight until my back could no longer take it and I felt the Motrin may have kicked in enough to scoot out.

3) Books read on vacation:

"It Sucked and then I Cried", by Heather Armstron (*****)

"Babyproofing Your Marriage: How to Laugh More, Argue Less, and Communicate Better as Your Family Grows", by Stacie Cockrell, Cathy O'Neill, and Julia Stone (****, only because nothing can score as high as Book #1)

"Life After Birth", by Kate Figes (**, some good info, but pretty dry)

"How Doctors Think", by Jerome Groopman (****, VERY interesting to know what goes on inside those heads)

"The 7 Stages of Motherhood", by Ann Pleshette Murphey (haven't read enough to rate it yet)

Don't worry though, it wasn't all mom and marriage business. I found a copy of Jane Green's "The Other Woman" in the hotel's library and re-read it. I read it for the first time when we were there a couple years ago and it was just as good the second time around!

4) Having a D&C and Hysteroscope next Thursday. And then maybe I'll be normal again. Seven months later. Doctor thinks a polyp is the culprit. I am really looking forward to the drug-induced nap, even if it's only 30 minutes long!

Oh my goodness -- the poor bebe. She looks so happy but those limbo teeth look so painful. :( I hope this passes as quickly and painlessly as possible!

Praying for you for next week! I will be checking in to see how it goes -- hang in there, love. "Normal" is coming soon, I hope. xoxo

Look at that big girl! Wow, Lilly, you get prettier every day.

I hope your procedures go easy, K. Will be thinking about you.

I can believe what a big girl Lilly is now! And all those teeth - the better to bite you with. :)

GL w/ your surgery. Hope it takes care of everything. Milk your time out as much as you can. You deserve the rest!

She has her Momma's smile. Love it.
Good luck on Thursday. Will be thinking of you.
