Dreadfully tired. Every day is full of work and stress as we prepare.

Today Shelly picked up Ethan and spent the day with him. She dropped him off at the doctors office this afternoon for his and Gwen's appointment. I didn't get to talk to Shel, so I have no idea how the day went or what they did. Ethan sure was tired though.

We were at the doctor today for Gwen's 1 year well-check. Here are her stats:

Length: 30 1/4 inches (75%)
Weight: 16lbs, 14 oz (-10%)

I can't believe I have a 1 year old that weighs 16lbs! Her weight is back off the charts, but the doctor didn't seem overly concerned as Gwen is meeting and well ahead of most her milestones. She's just a lightweight.

We also had her look at Ethan's eye because he still has that stye. She agreed to give me some antibiotic cream. It needs to be applied 4x a day for 2 weeks. Oddly enough, after he woke up from nap there was some goo around the eye and his eye watered all evening. It looks like the stye might actually be draining and this before I even got the eye cream in. We applied some heat tonight, then the cream and he was surprisingly patient. Hopefully this will resolve the issue so we don't have to take him for the surgical procedure.

Tomorrow Mom is coming over with a bunch of boxes and will babysit/visit while I get stuff done. Once Jason comes home we'll go to Lowes and get some stuff we need to make things look nice, then do what we can.

Off to bed.
