What we're up to

 We did two weeks of 'parent and me' swim lessons.  This equated to 30 minutes a day of holding Macie trying to get her to blow bubbles.  It was terrific.  I loved every moment of it.  She enjoyed the water more and more each day, and by the end, we even 'dropped' her off the diving board (into the hands of her instructor).  She signed that she wanted 'more'.  It was super cute. 
 Isn't this girl just adorable!  Below is us today.  The swim lessons have made me look super tan, but now I don't have foundation that matches my skin tone (I know, poor me!).  I'm just justifying the lack of makeup I have on.

 And lastly, my cousin got married on Friday and posed for a picture.  It was beautiful, and we had a nice time.  Macie missed her afternoon nap however, so by 7 o'clock she had had it. 

Dh only has 2 more weeks of summer school and then we'll get two weeks off together as a family before teacher meetings start.  Where does the time go?  I'm not worrying about it, but every once in a while I have to remind myself that summer won't last forever.

And in other infertility news, we have decided to persue a FET at the end of August.  I had an intake appointment with the same RE we used before.  We have two embryos left, one 6 cell, one 7 cell (at 3 days I think) and everything so far looks like a go.  Tomorrow I will have a mock transfer for the Dr. to make his notes, and once I start my period in a few weeks I'll begin the nuv.a ring and it'll be on!  We're trying to avoid telling anyone IRL, just two girlfriends that I meet with weekly know.  Not that we have anything to be ashamed of, mostly because we want to maybe have a chance to surprise people.  Maybe.

What have you been up to?

She's ridiculously adorable! I'm jealous that you had outdoor swimming lessons- ours were indoors. In November and December. Brrrr.

Summer went by fast, didn't it? I hope you enjoy your last few weeks to the fullest with your family.

Good luck with your FET!

I'm not sure Miss Macie could be any darn cuter! :)

Just had to peek out of hiding and let you know how RIDICULOUSLY excited I am about your upcoming FET. Will be sending up prayers for you and your little family.
