We have loose teeth over here!

Okay, this is getting scary...Reese's two front bottom teeth are loose.  There is always a surprise coming...and since she's our oldest, everything that happens with her is a first for us.  I can't imagine her without her perfect little white teeth!  I hope that her permanent teeth come in straight, and not like mine did...super crooked!  I have no idea when they're going to pop out...I hope it doesn't hurt and I hope they don't all start coming out one right after the other.  She will look so different!  This is exciting and scary at the same time.

This was the final week of summer camp for Paige.  Reese has two more days of VPK left and then everyone is done until August 20th.  The first day of Kindergarten is rapidly approaching...yet another event I really hoped would never come.  Yes, I know it's part of growing up, but it's still hard to believe she is almost six and starting actual school.  This parenting gig is HARD sometimes!!

I have lots of cute pics to share from the weekend...

Silly girls in their pajamas on a lazy Saturday morning :)

After reading her Dora book, she moved onto a novel.

Check out this hair!

This kid is obsessed with opening cabinet doors...just to see them open. She just doesn't look almost 3.5 years old!

Reese is still riding around in her baby doll's stroller. Silly kid!

Paige still loves to chew on everything and play in the curtains.

Pool time on Saturday...

And some of Reese on Sunday. Paige took a nap...she started to get a little cold, so she tuckered out for about three hours.

After Pippy's nap, she was dying to go outside.  Marshall turned on this sprinkler, and you should have seen her!  She kept swiping at the puddles with her hands and was so funny!  She loved it and was entertained for quite a while!

See you next Sunday :)

Another July week

Well, hello there.  It's Sunday again...time for an update.  Not much to report again this week.  Paige is officially finished with her metal chelation.  I did her last urine collection today.  That is quite a task, let me tell you!  I got what I needed, though, and I will be sending it off this week.  Reese still has a few days left of her last testing cycle, and then she has to wait a week before we do her final collection.  Once that's over, it's more blood work for both of them.  I'm hoping to get it all done the first part of August, before school begins.  I'm sooooo looking forward to not having to give them suppositories every five minutes!  Almost three months of glad it's over.

Paige and I had some pool time on Friday while Reese was at school.  She had a great time, and it was a beautiful day.  I can never handle both girls at the pool by myself, so when I have just one, it's a lot easier & safer.  

She was giving me the bird here...haha.

Reese is into playing with toys that are waaayyy too small for her...haha!  Here she is in her baby's stroller.  She just wheels herself all over the place.

And this is what she has been doing lately with Paige's little pony...I took it with my phone, so it's not that great.

Hope you have a great week!

Our week

I don't have a lot to report this week...just that we are on the tail end of the metal chelation with Reese and Paige.  Thank goodness it's almost over.  Practically three months of suppositories for these girls...sheesh.  In another week or so, we will do one last urine collection and send that in for results.  Hopefully it will show that the metals have been flushed out of their bodies, or at least a huge decrease in them.  They also have to get more blood work done, but not as much as last time.  I'm anxious to find out the results since we've added in new vitamins.

Here are the pictures from this week...not that many, but still some cute ones.  The girls have matching monkey tank tops.  I think they're so adorable!

Talk about a couch potato...she loves to get comfortable, cross her leg over her other knee, put her thumb in her mouth and wiggle her toes around.  Silly kid!

And some pool pics...

Marshall has been working on this eyesore of a fountain on our back patio.  The top part fell off a few weeks ago and part of it broke.  It's just so old, and I wish we could just take it out.  The girls find it fascinating, though, and as Marshall was filling it with water, Reese decided she'd take the opportunity to soak her feet and play with the hose.

That's all I have for this week...stay tuned for more from this week. Have a good one!
