Holy Julie Chin! Check out the chipmonk cheeks! Why does my face look soooo round in pictures when I really don't see it when I look in the mirror? It's like a mean magic trick my face likes to play on me!

He was trying to eat my granite counter tops!
He has named my mom "Nae Nae" and he calls my dad (his grandpa) "Daddy". It's so funny when he goes around the house calling out "Daddy!" and he's calling for my dad.
I don't get to see him very often so every time he seems so much bigger than the last time. He's only 14 months old but I had to keep reminding myself of this because he seems like he's more around 24 months. He's so independent and smart. And he says words (like Nae Nae and Daddy) and you can understand them. He walks around perfectly with no problems and was even going up and down the stairs like a little person, step by step, not crawling up and down.

I wasn't sure how it was going to go because I'm not good at chasing little ones around, trying to stand still and focus, and then trying to get them to look at me. It was like every time I got in his face he would turn around, so I got plenty of the back of his head!
But it was still fun and I got to try out the lens ( I still can't decide if I really like it or not yet). He got to play on the play ground and then we moved on to the splash pad, which is perfect for little kids who love the water. He kept himself entertained the whole time.

She said that at my age, we would still be ok trying 3 more IUIs or if we felt like we should move on to IVF, that would be ok too. If she had said that she was confident that the amount of endometriosis I had was probably causing all of our problems and removing it significantly increases our chances, it would have been very easy to say that we should just keep on doing the IUIs. But since she didn't really reassure me of anything, the decision was a little harder.
We decided to try one more IUI on my next cycle that will start in 2 weeks. And if that one doesn't work, then it's on to IVF. We've already started looking into how we would pay for the $15,000 procedure to see if that plan was even possible.
She did say that if I was 37, she would suggest to move on to IVF right away. But since I'm "only" 27, I have plenty of time (her words, not mine). I told her that I understand that I still have time, but we've also been trying for 2 1/2 years and it's just getting more and more frustrating. She completely understood and thought we were making the right decision for now.
So it really didn't go the way I had hoped and I ended up leaving in tears. It's just really, really frustrating to think we were getting somewhere and then to be told that we still really aren't sure what the problem is and we aren't really sure what we should be doing next.
So, stay tuned for the next month's appointments, fertility meds updates, insemination info, and the frustrated of the "two week wait". I know you're super excited...:)

I go back to work tomorrow and I really don't want to!!! I got used to my life at home with no place to go and I enjoyed it! But I guess I need to get back to reality.
I'm still really excited to get back to the doctor's office to talk about the next step and when we get to start it all over again. I'm hoping we get to try this next cycle.
Here are some more pics from Mexico...
Rain on slick tile walkways at resort + flip flops + a few too many cervasas = really big bruise! So not cute!
It was so windy!

We arrived in Cancun around 2:00 and by the time we went through Customs and retrieved our bags (mine was ripped open and the zipper broken, btw, but David managed to make a quick fix to it so I could make it to the hotel), and then waited for our shuttle to take us to the resort it was after 3:00 and then it was about an hour drive to Playa. So we checked in, got to our rooms and rinsed off and then headed to find something to eat.
We got up the next morning ready to have some breakfast and head to the pool for a day in the sun. Well, it started out ok, but then the rain came and it didn't look like it was going to let up. We went to our rooms to wait it out. We napped and watched tv all afternoon. Then we got ready for dinner again and headed to the lobby for the night's entertainment.
The next few days all seemed to go the same way because we couldn't really plan anything because of the weather. We did book a snorkeling trip but it got postponed because of the rain and then it eventually was cancelled because of the wind, even though the sun was out. That was disappointing because I think we all were looking forward to that. We did get to enjoy one full day in the sun on the beach and at the pool and we even got a little bit of a sunburn!
I hope to have more pictures of Mexico posted as soon as I can get them all uploaded.
We got home this past Wednesday night and it was back to work on Thursday. I had 2 full days of work trying to get caught back up after being gone for a week. But I can't complain because it made the days go by super fast and before I knew it, it was time for the 3 day weekend!
Again, we didn't really know what to plan for the weekend because the rain was headed our way yet again. So we decided to stay home and if it cleared up, we would just go to Skiatook for the day because it's only about a 30 minute drive from our house to the boat ramp.
Saturday morning, we got up early and David cleaned the boat and I got the food and everything ready for us to go out on the boat. We had plans for 3 other couples to go out with us too. We also kept wathing the weather reports on tv to see if it was even worth it to go out or if it was just going to rain all day. Well, we could tell really quick that it wasn't going to clear up anytime soon, so we cancelled the day at the lake and decided to just have a lazy day around the house and it was so nice to catch up on my sleep.
Saturday night, we decided to have a few friends over for a cookout, watch the UFC fight, and to set off a few fireworks. It turned out really good and we had alot of fun. I wish I would have taken pictures...dang it!
We got up Sunday morning and the sun was shining! So we got everything packed up and headed out to Skiatook. We were very tired from the night before but we weren't going to miss out on the sunshine!
After the nice, relaxing day at the lake David and I went out to eat on our way home. After we got everything unloaded, we went out for some ice cream and came home and popped the remaining fireworks that we had. It was amazing to see all of the fireworks that people all around us were shooting off. It really was by far one of my favorite 4th of July nights.
I hope American had a very Happy Birthday!
