What Happened in October...

Saturday, November 6, 2010

How did October just come and go?? I was looking at pictures I took back in August and that really doesn't feel like it was 3 months ago! What the heck?! Here's what we did... (It wasn't a super exciting month for us..)

- At the beginning of September, Darbi got a nasty cold that seemed to last ALL month. On and off... we think she caught 2-3 different things (lucky lucky us with her crappy immune system) and it turned into bronchitis. Not pneumonia though. She was having some crazy bad breathing retractions and I kind of freaked out thinking she needed her O2 again. We made a midnight trip to the ER, got some antibiotics, and slept the entire next day. She recovered just fine!

- That same time Darbi made her trip to the ER, I had been suffering from the worst migraine of my life. I tend to have headaches a lot but this was something altogether different. Oh the pounding... I lasted like 6 or so days before I went into the Dr. just to have him tell me I had a sinus infection! I had no idea I was even sick! Yucky..

- On Oct 12 the sequel to The Maze Runner came out! It's called The Scorch Trials and I have yet to read it. :( I'm still waiting for my turn to get it at the library.. Monday or Tuesday and it should be my turn!

- We had our 4th anniversary on the 14th! It was pretty uneventful. I think we went to Texas Roadhouse... or Mi Ranchito. Is it sad that I can't even remember? :( It was only 3 weeks ago. I did take a picture of us though! But the Saturday after that, we went up and had dinner at The Copper Onion in SL. A.MAZ.ING. It was so good, I was literally suppressing moans between bites. THAT. GOOD. Go. You'll thank me.


- Darbi had her first bubble bath. She hated it. Hilarious.


- I started babysitting my neighbor's little boy 2 days a week and he's ADORABLE. Totally fills my baby cravings. Darbi is so helpful when he's around. He cries, she hands me everything she thinks will make him happy. It's adorable.

- Clint had sinus surgery at the end of October. They fixed his deviated septum, took out some polyps and cysts that shouldn't have been there, and cleaned out a chronic sinus infection on both sides. Gross I know. He can breath so much better now though. I don't know if the snoring will stop but here's hoping!!

Before surgery watching Sesame Street in the Pre-Op room.


After surgery with the new 'stash.


- Halloween with my Mama in town! But that will be another post!

- My cousin Andrew saw this super cute dress while on a trip to San Antonio and instantly thought of Darbi. It's adorable on her! She looks like a little Spanish Senorita. Thanks Bratsman fam!!! I need to make a giant flower bow for her to wear with it.


- This part may be too personal but because this blogs main purpose is about Darbi and our baby making issues (I think...) I'll share this lil' tidbit. A few days ago I got an IUD. A copper one. I hated every minute of getting it but I think it's going to be awesome. I'm in no shape to be getting pregnant so no babies for us from us anytime soon. Hopefully at the start of the new year, we'll get our adoption papers going. Getting pregnant is way way too risky for us right now so it had to be done.

- In an effort to get in shape to someday make a baby again, I started shunning sugar! The first 2-3 days were incredibly difficult but I'm having no problem staying on top of it. We'll see how the holidays "treat" me... (That was for you Amy..) :)

I am glad to see you are back! I totally saw you at Target a few week ago, and it took me too long to figure out it was you!? Or, I would have said hi. Darbi is a doll in her little dress!! So cute.

I totally started crying when I read that you are putting in adoption papers. I am so excited for your little family. You are pretty awesome parents and any kid that gets to join your family is LUCKY! Darbi is looking so cute and so big. I wish I could give her a squeeze.

I had actually noticed you were MIA for a while there. I figured you'd been busy but geesh! What a month!

I love the picture of Darbi in the little Mexican dress. So cute! Most of my extended family is in San Antonio. She threw me back :-)

Oh, and IUD's are great! I bet you'll love it. Did they tell you your regular visitor might go on permanent vacation? It's awesome :)
