Things I never thought of before a baby:
- Can baby slobber mess up a car's ignition? (She was chewing on my keys, then I had to start the car. What can I say?)

Things I wouldn't have done before a baby:
- Gotten home from running errands only to realize that I had worn capris when I hadn't shaved. Then thought, "Who cares. Everyone was looking at the baby..."

So I really should be keeping track of all these things I think of to make real lists. But I haven't.

Nuns at Costco

This morning I was at Costco waiting for the doors to open (ah, the church retreat....) and it struck me as funny to see two nuns, in habits, waiting with me.

Here's a quote for the day.
The unthankful heart discovers no mercies, but let the thankful heart sweep through the day, and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessing. - Henry Ward Beecher

And a picture for the day. My girl's so cute! :)

Praise God!

We met with Anne's pediatric neurosurgeon this morning.  He said the pediatrician was wrong and he was not very worried.  He said that the visible lump of fat on her back is completely unrelated to the line of fat on her spinal cord.  But the thin line of fat on her spinal cord is what he was looking at.  He says that it doesn't look like it is attached to her spinal cord - which is when it would cause a problem.  He says in babies this young, the best way to tell if there are lower spinal cord problems is if there are bladder problems.  Her bladder appears to be working fine, but he wants her to have it examined to make sure everything is fine.  That will happen when they can work us in - probably a couple of months.  And if everything is okay, he justs thinks we should keep watching the fat on her spine to make sure it doesn't change. So Anne will have another MRI in a year.  The visible lump of fat on her back he says is absolutely harmless and he isn't concerned about in the slightest. 

Summary - everything seems to be okay, but he'll keep watching the thin line of fat on her spinal cord to make sure it doesn't turn into something serious.

Sorry this sounds so confusing.  It was to us, too!

Thank you for your prayers.  Even though we have to keep watching it, we feel God definitely answered our prayers.
