Monkey Walking...Or Am I really that much of a germ-a-phobe!!!

I created this update once already today, but decided to scrap it and start over.

There is nothing, nothing cooler than seeing your kid pick up new things! Natalie has picked up 2 new "feats" that amaze me. 1. Monkey Walking and 2. Sanitizing her hands!!!

We sat in the grass yesterday and Natalie starting crawling around. Only, she decided that she didn't like the way it felt on her knees, so she proceeded to "walk" using her hands and feet all over the yard!!! We'd start at one edge of the yard, she'd crawl to the other edge, I'd pick her up and walk back, and she'd start all over again. We then went inside and she picked up a bottle of Purell (they're all over our house), she taps the top of it on one hand (not realizing that the bottle isn't open) then proceeds to rub her two little hands together. Um, yeah, we clean our hands a lot!

I told Jason about the sanitizing thing and he says, "Yeah, she did that last weekend, but I didn't tell you. I didn't want you to think you'd missed out on something."

In other news, last Thursday's clinic appointment went GREAT! They took out the PICC line in Natalie's arm. Now all that remains is the bile-stint line in her tummy. This will probably stay in place for a few more months. She had to go back on Iron (but she was anemic pre-transplant so we figured this was coming). Here is her list of meds right now:











I went back to work and Papa K got to babysit on Monday! She is doing SUPER great (except for the occasional prednisone mood-swings - but we can handle those)!! We go back to Children's Memorial next week.
