Let's play catch up!

We've been pretty busy these last few weeks! The boys started school (Austin 3rd grade and Andrew Pre-K), we went apple picking, and dr.'s appointments!

Apple picking in Mexico, NY

Wednesday, Austin had an appointment with the geneticist (2 1/2 hours away) that went pretty well. It had been 5 years since we'd last gone so it was about time! I just didn't feel it was necessary to take him earlier. Plus at the time, Austin was seeing so many dr.'s that it was overwhelming. Now that we're in a period of less appointments, I decided we'd better get it out of the way.

Other than updating information, nothing new was discussed. I expressed my concern that I couldn't find anyone within an hour drive to take Austin on as a pediatric dental patient. I've been trying for the past year and to no avail. Thankfully, the geneticist is setting us up with a terrific (or so I'm told) dentist there. Yes, it'll be a 2 1/2 hour drive but it's worth it. Besides they have great shopping and restaurants! Heehee!

Austin was weighed and measured while we were at the appointment. It utterly shocked to me find out that he's gained yet another 3 pounds since June! That's 13 pounds since June of 2009! My little scrawny Austin is porking up! On the bright side, he also has grown another inch so that's helping. I think we've finally hit the stage in RTS where the pounds pile on but the growth in height starts slowing down. =(

I also had an OB appointment this morning so here's the latest picture of my round self taken at 33 weeks 3 days.
