Well ladies and gentlemen. Boys and girls. It looks like the pink dress won. Morgan Kate will be sporting this precious dress at the wedding this weekend. My grandmother will be thrilled. She wanted Morgan Kate to wear the pink one anyway. And speaking of wedding, it's a wedding for my cousin Lynn and his fiance' Amy. Congrats to both of them! I know it will be beautiful! 

Not only are we preparing for the wedding, but we are packing for the beach as well. I am so excited I can hardly stand it. I am like a kid at Christmas! In the picture below you will notice towels and sheets. But everything else? The rest belongs to Miss Morgan Kate. And the sad part? That's really only half of it. It's a lot of work, but so much fun.

Sleep Study Update:
I talked with our pediatrician earlier tonight. She has gotten the official results from the sleep study. We discussed them and she said she was very pleased with them. There were no heartrate drops, only three desats, and numerous apnea episodes. However, the longest apnea episode only last eight seconds. So, is that really apnea? The monitor doesn't even alarm until it's been twenty seconds. She has sent the results to Dr. Brown, our pulmonologist, just for a second opinion. She is not worried about anything or concerned, she just wants someone else to take a look at them. At this time her recommendation is to DISCONTINUE the monitor. Oh my goodness! What will I do? But we will check with Dr. Brown before making any changes. I asked for more information about the "desats". Dr. G said that there were only three. Two of them were drops to 90 or 91 and only one of them was to 78. I wasn't concerned with the 90 or 91 at all. I mean I am not medically trained or certified or specialized in any way, shape or form, but I do know enough to not be worried about those. Her average was 95. So, we are now just waiting on Dr. Brown. Again, I'm not worried about the monitor at all. She could keep it until she is 15, I don't care. I just want to know everything is okay. 

Do you remember this precious girl? And probably for the first time ever I'm actually not referring to Morgan Kate at the moment. My dear friend, Jessa, and her hubby, Heath, had their baby today. A precious baby girl named Annie Parker. She weighed seven pounds and thirteen ounces and was twenty and a half inches long. Annie Parker is absolutely beautiful and perfect in every way! Which comes as no surprise because both her mommy and daddy are beautiful people. Mommy, Daddy and baby girl are all doing great! I am so excited that Morgan Kate has a new little friend and a friend with a double name. Love it! I can't wait to get these girls together. 

And last, but certainly not least. Morgan Kate actually had a play date just yesterday. She and Caroline got together and began to really check each other out. Morgan Kate kept watching Caroline and reaching over to where she was. It was the sweetest thing! We had such a nice time!

It's so different packing for a trip when you have a baby. You guys are going to have a blast though!

Love her pink's beautiful!

I tell you...I think the monitor until she's 15 is a great idea :) helps Mommy sleep better at night!

The pink one is so pretty. She looks like a little angel in it.

I love the last picture with the girls sporting HUGE smiles. They made me smile.

Have a great time at the wedding and beach.

Awesome news about the monitor! I'm still hanging on to ours at night, just because I'm paranoid. They just came for a download, and if they are both clear again, I'll finally let go...although I was ready to send them to college with them!

Have fun at the beach! Can't wait to see pictures!
