Friday's Fave Five is hosted by Living to Tell the Story. It's a great way for me to stay on the positive side, and remember both the big and little blessings in life.
1. No growth hormones for now.
Grasshopper had to go back to Children's a couple of weeks ago for more tests. We got those results back this week, and the hormone they were looking at was actually on the low side of normal. So, we continue with a high calorie diet for now. If things keep going the way they are, we have no doubt he will eventually need them. We're in no hurry, though. He's 3 1/2 and only 21 pounds, 32 inches tall. He's not growing much! We pack calories in his food, so there's nothing else we can do. We also know that if God wants to give him a growth spurt, He will, and then Grasshopper won't need those growth hormones. :) Even when he was in the NICU, growth was one of his biggest issues.
2. My new glasses.
I've worn contacts for years, and still HIGHLY prefer them. My allergies have been HORRIBLE lately, though, and they go straight to my eyes. I feel like they're being pushed out of my head. Most the time, I just can't bear to have the contacts in my eyes while dealing with the allergies. So, it was WAY past time for my glasses to get renewed. As much as a prefer my contacts, my glasses have been wonderful the past couple of months!
3. Allergy medicine!
My allergies could be MUCH worse without these wonderful pills. :)
4. To Do List
I've let little things accumulate on my to-do list for too long. This week I started marking several of those things off. One of my favorites was to mark off clearing out e-mails from one of my addresses(I have two). I won't even tell you how ridiculous it had gotten. It feels SO incredibly great to have them cleared out and organized!
5. This peanut butter cookie recipe!
Jonathan likes his cookies to taste like sugar and peanut butter mixed together. I like mine to have a flour texture. We've never agreed on peanut butter cookies until this recipe. It is AWESOME!
