House Is on the Market

Well it is official sign and all. We are hoping to have this house sold by this Spring. The real estate agent feels that the market hasn't been hit here too bad and people are still buying and selling especially in our price range. We are really hoping to have this place sold and be in our new place in Virginia before Aiden starts school in September. We shall see.

As for the latest Mia health saga, we had our three week check up with our ENT last week. Unfortunately, Mia is not doing any better since the tubes. The doctor gave us more drops as well as an oral antibiotic hoping that this will get the rest of the fluid and infection out. He did say that if she is no better by her six month check up in April we might want to consider removing her Adenoid. Despite it all, Mia continues to amaze us. She is really such a joy to have around. She is just so much fun. Aiden is really starting to enjoy having her around now that they can actually play tag and stuff. Also, Mia has started to finally say a couple more words. She says "all done, hello, bye-bye, Aiden and dog." She also sings the melody to Patty-cake, Itsy Bitsy Spider and Elmo's World - replacing the words for "da." So despite her ever present runny nose, cough and ear infection she remains happy and active.

Got Tubes????

Well after battling ear infections since she arrived home with us, it was recommended that Mia get tubes inserted in both ears. It was quite a whirlwind week last week. We took Mia to the doctor on Monday with a cold and we were referred to a pediatric ENT. We met with Dr. Carron of UMC on Tuesday and he definitely recommended tubes for Mia. The procedure was scheduled for Thursday at 6 am. Tubes were put in and Mia did great. She is now on the mend and back to her crazy little self.

Eric also accepted a position with CNA Insurance. The position will be bringing us back to the Richmond, VA area. We are so happy to be able to go back to Richmond and be with our family again. We worked very hard this weekend getting the outside of our house in ship-shape for selling and this week I will be working on the inside of the house. Eric begins his new position on December 1st, however, we will be staying here until our house sells. We are hoping to be able to move to Virginia sometime this Spring.
