The specialist said Caycen's right kidney has actually shrunk some from 1.6 to 1.4! Praise the Lord! Thank you for your faithful prayers! His intestine shows no signs of distress and she admitted it was probably just his meconium beginning to build for his big debut...I can't wait!

I did however have 3 contractions, only 2 of which I felt while on the monitor...so we had a fun trip to the L&D ward at Sierra...I was thrilled! LOL Good Times!

Our trip to VA/DC was great, Shelby and I really enjoyed our getaway but desperately wanted to be back home to finish setting up house! As cliche as it sounds "there's no place like home".

We were able to eat some fabulous seafood...best sea bass and clam chowder ever! It was fun too b/c everyone was preparing for this weeks festivities to celebrate our amazing country's birthday!

Until next time...Happy Fourth of July!!!!!

Getting Settled

Well, we moved in this weekend...gosh it is so sureal...I can't believe we have a house and "all the fixin's"!
No doubt it is an exhausting experience! But sooooooo worth it!

Shelby leaves tomorrow morning bright and early for VA; a training seminar...I will catch up with him Wednesday...nice little get away!

Caycen is growing daily...I can feel his frustration as he tries to move ... anxious to see what my OB says on Tuesday and then the specialist next Monday...

Savannah is adjusting well, after we get back its into a big girl bed and potty time! YIPPEE!!!!

Our other babies, Major and Mazie are adjusting but I think Mazie is sad. She misses her carefree runs across 2 acres...Major is probably loving the cleanliness of "city life". LOL

That is about it...hope all is well with everyone else...keep us updated...no new posts lately!

love to all

Some new pics

Another Caycen Update

I had another appointment today with the specialist...the good news is that his rt. kidney has somewhat stabilized. He measured 1.3cm last time and today it measured 1.3 one direction and 1.6 another direction...so she said that was good. Check SpellingHowever, she noticed some inflammation in his bowels. So that has to be monitored as well. It isn't critical(probably a mucus plug) unless it changes a lot or he becomes distressed. She also said that big babies have an easier time clearing their bowels. (Shelby and I think this is a moot point because not that many babies are monitored at this stage and this is when it becomes apparent) I will go back on Monday,June 29th, 2 weeks from now for another check up. We will keep you posted.
Some fun news, he already weighs 4lbs and 6oz, nearly 4 and half pounds...he is at the 96th percentile~and if I am allowed to go full term he will be over 10 lbs.
She tried really hard to get a good pic, but everytime she clicked, he moved! Lil' stinker! After trying to get a good pic of his face, which he blocked everytime by placing his hands over his face...she shot for his beautiful lil' hands, but then he just clenched his fists! LOL So we didn't get any new pics~darn it all!

Thanks for all the prayers and love.
Shelby, Erica, Savannah & Caycen
