Wow! Tomorrow is the beginning of August...

Our irrigation system was completed a week ago. Our new landscaping is about 90% complete. Now we just need some grass, a fence in the backyard, and some free time to finish organizing our house. It's hard to believe that we moved in over 10 weeks ago! Other than my Dad and parents-in-law, not a soul has visited us.

Here are a few photos of Daphne:

July 27

Yesterday, Jennie had a hydrosonogram to reacquaint the doctor with her uterus. A small polyp was found (uh oh), so a minor surgical procedure will be scheduled for next week. If all goes well, Jennie should heal quickly and be on pace for the targeted October 4th implantation date. We could *potentially* have a July 4 baby (or babies) to go along with our Leap Year Daphne.

More photos coming soon...

Until tomorrow,

July 22

Jennie had a doctor appointment today (consultation, blood work, etc). We have officially begun trying for baby number two. Yay! Updates will be more frequent...

Since Labor Day is only six weeks away, we cannot start immediately with our fertility preparations. Instead, we will have to start a month from now and if all goes well, Jennie will be impregnated in early October. Assuming the embryos implant successfully, we would have a late June / early July baby in 2011.

Our lawn irrigation system will be fully installed as of this weekend. Next week, a highly recommended, local landscape company will begin with a clean slate. Our builder's basic landscape package was a little disappointing. We have decided to kill off our entire yard of weeds and undesirable (builder-grade) grass. In early Autumn, our yard will be re-seeded and we will cross our fingers for a better lawn.

Here are some new photos of Daphne:

I'm afraid my apathy for keeping this blog up to date is beginning to show...

What's new? Our bedroom furniture was delivered last Friday. Our irrigation and landscape work should begin this week (assuming the rain ever stops). House stuff seems to be winding down (post lights were installed, power pole finally removed, etc).

Jennie has a fertility doctor appointment on July 22nd. Maybe Daphne will have a brother, sister, or both in a year?

I will try to post some new photos of Daphne this week.

Until tomorrow,
Dave T.
