St. Louis visit went well...

Well, everything is fine! Malakai is FINALLY on the height growth curve. He's only in the 10th percentile, but he is on the curve! He's not, however, on the curve for weight. Our little guy wasn't even 17 pounds yet. But, he has had diarrhea for over a month now. They think his GI tract is just having a hard time getting over this illness. There's not a medication they can give him to make him stop, so we have to wait. They took another stool sample to finish the testing they started. He got the first of his seasonal flu shot and we'll have to get the second one in a month. Trying to find information on the H1N1 vaccine is ridiculous!! He should be on the top of "the list" but no one seems to know who to contact about "the list" In the past, I wouldn't have even probably thought about the vaccine, but with Malakai I feel like it's not even an option! So much to think about now! Anyways, we won't have to go back to clinic until January, which is great news!!

We are hoping and praying that we have a peaceful couple of months. We'd really, really like to go on a family vacation somewhere warm. It'd be nice to get away and relax!!! We had a complete stranger approach us at Cracker Barrell the other day and say "You two need to get away, just the two of you. Go need it, I can tell" I said "If you only knew..."

Anyway, all is well here. I am so thankful things seem to finally be settling down and returning to normal. Makena is growing into a little lady and Malakai is really starting to babble and scoot around the floor. It's an amazing thing to watch children grow...
