Don’t know for sure how many are left to go… but at max 7 over the next year. (if you didn’t see in the last post Baylie is having laser treatment for a large port wine stain on the upper part of her back.)
Baylie’s first treatment was a success! The horror story of getting there is another story, but we made it safely just late. Anyways since they weren’t doing any cutting they let her wear her special gown the whole time! The nurses & doctors were all in awe & loved it. It was actually a very nice ice breaker for Baylie because she was overwhelmed by all the new people… but if you ask her about her princess dress you win a place in heart!
It was funny because when they asked where I got it & I said that I made it suddenly more nurses were ‘stopping by’ to check in. I thought it was funny… people still use sewing machines! But it also makes me all warm in fuzzy inside to hear every time! The one guy joked that Children’s should hire me to make them for all the kids! lol
And what’s the best way to celebrate? Mommy daughter fabric shopping of course!!! I don’t get to spend a lot of one on one time with the twins, so it’s always a treat, & lucky for me Baylie LOVES shopping for fabric. We got some yummy soft cotton/lycra knit at one AWESOME quilt shop in Everett… I could go broke in there, they carry tons of AH, RK, MM, AB & more!!!! Plus all the best patterns… no waiting for shipping :). But I was good & just got the cotton/lycra to make the twins some leggings, though Baylie kept pointing out all the other stuff we needed! We also went to JoAnn’s & got some cute cord to make some school clothes (the twins start 1 day a week preschool in the fall!) It’s cute, she has to hug each piece after it is cut & then SHE must put it in the cart.
She is napping right now. I threw her gown in the wash because it had some Vaseline on it from after the laser… I will try to get action shots later or tomorrow.
