Update on our Life

Today Bryn went for an ultrasound to make sure all her reproductive organs are present. Afterwards she went to see the urologist so he could look over the pictures and check things. Bryn passed with flying colors. So another thing checked off the list. Bryn is slowly but surely growing. She finally weighs over 10 pounds. Through a long story, a bad nurse and a few phone calls...we took Bryn to see an ENT(ears, nose, throat dr.). She has been congested from the day she was born and it has gotten so bad. So bad that she can't sleep at night because she basically stops breathing and has to figure out how to breathe through her mouth. Babies are pretty much wired to breathe through their nose when they are really young so they can breathe while eating (bottle/nursing). We took her to an ENT and he told us that her symptoms sound like reflux. He also wants to have her scoped ( a scope through her nose and throat) to check out everything and see how it is formed. He wrote her a prescription for a reflux medication. It has seemed to help a lot with her spitting up issues and is slowly, but surely helping her breathe a little bit better. She also breathes a ton better when it is super cold. But other than those things... and her hands... Bryn is 'A' okay. She sure has been a difficult little child, but we still love her!
Makenna loves her little sister so much. It has been awesome to see how much she loves her. Also... Makenna is one of the smartest 3 year old kids I know. It is unbelievable how awesome she is at puzzles, she knows and can recognize her ABC's and is learning how to spell her name. I asked her the other night a few questions about herself...

 - what is your favorite color? white and grey
 - what is your favorite animal? rhinoceros
 - what is your favorite thing to do? sidewalk chalk and bubbles
 - what is your favorite ice cream? chocolate cookies (cookies and cream)
I also asked her to tell me a happy story about herself. She told me "my daddy took me to get chocolate cookies and we went to Wal-Mart!"
Haha...she loves going to Wal-Mart and Target. She loves to get all her dress-up clothes on and her purse and tell me bye...I'm going to Wal-Mart. She is a crack-up!
