Happy Birthday, DollFace

DollFace's 5th birthday! When I started talking to her about her birthday a few days ago she said, "Birthday? Is that something with presents?" She couldn't think of anything she wanted for a gift but made sure we all knew she wanted a pink and red cake, pink and red balloons and pink and red presents. And so a pink and red birthday it was! I was so pleased to be able to get her a book called "Pinkalicious" along with a few things for helping with gardening this spring. Her daddy made her a red velvet cake with pink icing and after presents we all played a Hungry Hungry Hippos tournament. A grand time was had by all.

I can't wait to see what DollFace's 5th year brings her. So much to be learned in this year. How to tie shoes, ride bikes, whistle, blow bubble gum bubbles, and of course, off to kindergarten in the fall. The baby of our family is growing up.

Connie from the clinic did contact me today and tell me that she would get the donor's test results to me by Wednesday or Thursday and that she would be working on May calendars next week and would call me in for a meeting after that. Also, that I would start taking the more serious medication on April 22. Seems really far away but just knowing that date is a comfort to me. I have a time frame to think about and can relax until that date is closer.

Jill, I wanted to thank you for being my cycling mentor. I've learned so much through your advice. And thank you everyone for always being encouraging, I'm grateful to have this safe place to be negative, nervous, happy, sad or anything else I need to be.


  1. Yay - glad Connie got in touch and all is set for you. Sounds like they may just be monitoring your donor since there is no way they are stimming her for a May cycle. But they may be seeing how she responds to the drugs?

    Happy birthday DF! I love those little kid moments - and what do you mean the baby of the family?! You will make sure this isn't the baby for much longer (hopefully her next birthday will be spent welcoming her new cousin!)

    Thanks for the props - God knows I never wanted to know as much as I do - and many people know WAY more than I! Best of luck to you.

  2. Happy Birthday DollFace :-). 5 is a great age!

    And glad you have a date, it is a comfort to have a date.
