I mentioned in the last post that Sarah had a little 'issue' and she still seems to be having problems. It started on May 6th - I changed her diaper and there was blood in her poop. The doctors office advised me to take her to the hospital since she's so young. They couldn't find anything - basically all they did was an x-ray to check for an obstruction and check her temperature - both were normal. I took her to the doctor on Friday morning and was advised to try cutting out dairy from my diet, which I had actually started the day after we visited the hospital. Unfortunately, the problem persists.
At this point it's very tiny amounts of blood - but it's still there. The doctor is running a few more tests and if those don't provide answers and it's still happening, we have to see a GI doctor. At the advice of a friend who's daughter had the same problem, I've also cut out all peanuts/tree nuts. The next to go is soy, which is in almost everything. Right now I'm eating fruit as a snack which I've never ever done in my life...but almost all snacks have milk or nuts in them. Guess it's a great way to lose the baby weight, huh?
Please pray that we find some answers this week or that the problem resolves itself soon. I am confident that God is in control of this situation and that Sarah will be okay.
Now for some pictures.
Last weekend my mom and Ronnie (aka Grandma G and Grandpa G) came up from CG for a visit! We love hanging out on our back patio with the misters. Makes the 100 degree heat feel alright.

For some reason, when you tell J to "smile" he thinks you mean "squint." Makes it hard to get a good picture.

Pretty Sarah - extreme close up!
Happy smiles and sad pouts
The kids and me.
