Rock Star!!!

Here she is....our future Rock Star!!

I used Andrea Gold's Sisters Kit and her template #216.

While at Jim and Julies in Fresno Kate played with this old Mickey Mouse piano they had. She banged on the keys and 'sang'. It was soo cute.

Kate's Stanford Apt & a Fresno Trip

So we went down to Stanford to meet with Dr. Lawrence Rinskey, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon. Eureka Ped's sent us down there because the x-ray and ultrasound we had done on her hip came back with a slight problem. There was more depth in her right hip joint than in her left hip joint. Our appointment was last Friday morning. We left Thursday afternoon and stayed in Palo Alto at a motel about 8 minutes from the clinic. Here is a picture of Kate and Daddy hanging out in the room Thursday Night:

Kate slept pretty well and woke up bright and early at 7:30 am. So we decided to get up and start getting ready. Here's a picture of Kate hanging out in her pack n' play as we got our stuff ready to go:

After we'd loaded all our stuff in the car we decided to head to Starbucks to get some coffee, go fill up the gas tank and get some sandwiches since our appointment was at 11:00 am. Here's a picture of Kate and Conor after we picked up our sandwiches:

We got to the clinic right before 11:00 and checked in. We waited a LOOOONNNNGGG time, 1.5 hrs to be exact. Here's a picture of Kate and Conor hanging out in the clinic waiting room and waiting in our room for the Dr:
Once we were taken back to our room a nurse chatted with us then in came a resident and she looked over Kate's hips. She said she'd also looked over the x-rays and did not think that Dr. Rinskey was going to do anything right now. Dr Rinskey then came in and did in fact say there is no need to do anything. He said that when children are born with hip dysplacia they are thrilled to set their hip the way Kate's is set right now. He wants us to come back in 6 months for a follow-up x-ray.

After the appointment we then drove south to Gilroy so that I could go shopping at the Carters Outlet in Gilroy. I got tons of cute clothes for Kate to wear in the summer. Then we drove east to Fresno to spend Friday night and Saturday with Conor's Aunt Julie and Uncle Jim and their three kids; Joe, Megan and Samantha. Kate had fun hanging out with their dog, Frosty, too!
Here's some pictures from our day with them.
