This weekend was an exciting one. The main reason being that we have a new toy:

We got a great deal on it at Best Buy so we just couldn't pass it up. It's so very pretty. :-)

On Sunday we watched the SuperBowl at Phil and Laura's house. I made chili and Laura and her friend Melissa supplied appetizers and dessert. It was a lot of fun. Chris and I picked Carley up some slippers because she's having tear duct surgery this week and everyone needs something comfy to wear after surgery. Here she is enjoying (?) her new slippers.

Chris and I went to a genetic counselor this morning and they took some of his blood just to make sure he's not a carrier for Canavan Disease. The counselor was pretty confident that he's not and that we'll be okay. It should take a few weeks for the results and I'll let you all know. I will say, however, that the person who designed the waiting room did a beautiful job! If you ever have a need for genetic counseling or IVF, go to Genetics and IVF Institute and enjoy the waiting area. They have a huge saltwater fish tank that was completely enthralling. They had three Nemo fish that I know all the kids must go crazy for.

I liked being in there. It's hard going to my OB/GYN's office b/c there are pregnant people and baby pictures everywhere and, in my mind at least, they all got pregnant after one month of trying and never had a miscarriage. At least at GIVF I know that the ladies there also have issues and I feel much more comfortable and less sad there.

This week I have my perinatologist appointment as well. I'm sure that'll go fine also. I'm not worried.

I hope Carley recovers as quickly as you did when you had the same surgery. You didn't even know it was done once you were awake from the anesthesia. Good luck Carley!
