Hellooooo August! Kicking off the month with my normal Five on Friday...

MY BABY SISTER HAD HER BABY!!!!!
Skylar Ann shocked us all by arriving early! I couldn't believe it. She is so perfect, and it is going to be a dream come true to watch my little sister as a mom. I cannot wait to go to Charleston in a couple weeks and scoop up this beautiful baby girl!!
And yes, this picture is right after my little sister had Skylar. I looked like I got run over by a stampede of buffalos when CK was born, and she could literally walk down a runway.

I cannot thank y'all enough for the thoughts, prayers, emails, messages, calls, and texts concerning my most recent little scare with Rocky. After getting a full blood panel done, checking all kinds of things having to do with hemoglobin/iron/etc., I got a call last week that all levels are on the very low end of the normal range! So while there are still some things we need to do to try to boost my iron, and we aren't necessarily out of the woods, we were so relieved that, at this point, no further testing is needed. I go back in a couple weeks and plan to have a detailed conversation with my doctor about everything. But for now, we are breathing huge sighs of relief!

And speaking of boosting my iron, T and I bought a Ninja! We scraped together some old Best Buy gift cards and ended up getting it without spending a penny. Since it arrived, we've been throwing together some healthy and delicious green smoothies. Such an easy way to increase my iron intake, and as a bonus, CK loves them! Ninja for the win!!

Oh, my Cameron Kate. Tomorrow is the day. The big day. The day when we switch her from her crib to her bed. How is she old enough to sleep in a big girl bed?! Fingers and toes and everything else crossed that all goes well with the transition!!

Yesterday, I baked homemade chocolate chip cookies, from scratch. Y'all, it's almost impossible for me to make cookies and NOT eat the dough (which you cannot do when you're pregnant!). So what did I do? Pulled out my trusty eggless cookie dough recipe from Pinterest and quickly whipped up a bowl so I could snack on it while I baked the cookies. Crisis averted!
Have a great weekend!!
