Firstly, congrats to the whole gang in India with all the twin births!! Three sets of twins to three very deserving families! The twin goodness is found on their blogs which I have the links on my sidebar...go check them out!
Our nextfamily.com update is live this week...I keep the link updated over here now ------------>
We have a new feature page on Surrogacy.ca! We opted to put our story out there, beyond this blog and thenextfamily.com to show a very positive experience in India. Sometimes only the unfortunate stories get published in mass and we are anxious to override them! There is always good and bad in every situation, but as of late, India is providing all great positive stories with happy healthy babies and parents! Please have a look at the link: http://surrogacy.ca/intendedparents/markkerrie.html
Cailyn continues to grow grow grow! She is sleeping a fair bit these days which is a good sign of a growth spurt. For the last 5 weeks , Cailyn rarely slept during the day, anxious to not miss a thing! As of last week, she sleeps a bit during the day and is sleeping 10 hours at night. Grow baby grow!
We really struggled with the whole vaccine dilemma. Cailyn is the most precious thing in our life and the thought of putting her at any risk has made the decision very difficult. Canadian guidelines recommend vaccinations start at 2 months...well, that time has passed and we took this time to really think about it, weighing out the pros and cons of going either way. In our research we have found that most people are very misguided about the local regulations especially when it comes to schooling. So, with very mixed thoughts, we will vaccinate...ugh. It's a terribly hard pill for us to swallow. I know that the vaccines will protect her from polio, measles etc, but at the same time I hate the thought of injecting her with even the smallest dose of medical poison. We plan to do it this Friday so that daddy is available to help out overnight if needed. Wish us luck!
We picked up our new ride on Wednesday! The back has privacy tinted windows and its own set of heat/air vents! Cailyn seems to love it so far!
|Daddy feeding - Cailyn is so long now she has to put her feet up on mark's chest!|
|Oh so little before...|
|Ah, being on the tummy - causes a nice milky drool!|
|Cailyn had a visitor all the way from India! Despite the language barrier, Daadi managed to coax Cailyn into a nice little nap.|
