6 Months

We took Little G for a photo shoot on Friday, in honour of her half birthday - that's right she turned 6 months old on Thursday the 23rd! I don't know where the time has gone. I will share one of the shots with you at the end of the post. She was really good for most of the shoot, but by the end she'd had enough of getting her picture taken. We got a few nice family shots. We bought a package with this photographer off a website called living.social and it includes 4 1-hour sessions. So, we are going to go back again in a few months and do a larger family shoot. We'll have my parents and grandmother, H's Dad, and my brother and his fiancee (Little G's guardians) together. The picture I'm looking forward to is a generations shot with my Mom, Grandma, me and G.

Life has been pretty good. IF is still rearing its ugly head from time to time. My cycle this time was 35 days. I'm usually a 24ish day cycle so I guess this was an anovulatory cycle - a nice reminder that I am definitely perimenopausal. Oh well. My health is about the same. I am having an endoscopy on Tuesday to check things out. I am not looking forward to going through it, but am looking forward to find out if there is anything going on in there. If they could just diagnose something and tell me how to fix it that would be great. And by "something" I mean an ulcer or irritable bowel syndrome, nothing scary or life-threatening. Something manageable and treatable. I have a feeling though, that everything is going to come back just fine. And, if that is the case I will just deal with it.

I will also be signing the papers to have my gallbladder removed. That surgery should be happening sometime in September. Then in January we are supposed to be heading back to Brno. I just don't like the idea of flying at that time of year. It will be snowy and cold here, and it will be snowy and cold there. Blech. I wish we could have our embies transferred to a clinic here. But, the clinic doesn't do that and I would be worried that something would happen to them en route. Ah well, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

Here's a pic of Little G...

Oh...she is so stinking cute! I love her smile. Sorry I've missed some posts...after how long using blogger I just discovered how to "follow" someone who doesn't have a widget for it (yours was just bookmarked before...yes I must be slow hehe). Look forward to hearing and seeing more :)

Oh my goodness, Little G is just too cute! We're getting ready to start TTC #2 next month, too. It feels so strange to be getting back on the bandwagon. I hope your 4th is great!
