A few things

First, thanks so much for the prayers for A as we went to the Allergist. Do you know what we found out? Not a bloomin' thing! Turns out, A's skin is so sensitive that every scratch (dot?) they made on her back turned red so he really couldn't read the test well. So, he said "She is either allergic to everything under then sun or nothing." He is going with none of the things he tested. SO, he 'figures' that it is viral and she is taking prednisone to hopefully knock it out. Along with a new allergy med -xyzol, I think and the Zantac she was already taking. IF it doesn't clear up with the prednisone, we will go back and do blood tests. Let's all hope for clearing up!
But A was a trooper. Not one tear from all the poking and itching. She even got a couple of bubble tests on her arm to check for a penicillin allergy. We 'think' those were negative, too. Once we get the hives cleared up we will return to the allergist to give her a dose of Amoxicillin and see if she gets hives from that or not.

I'm not sure that a whole lot was accomplished.....

On another note, on Monday -- I saw two rainbows. And because I always want to take a picture when I see a rainbow -- here they are. One of these pictures was taken from my driveway. The other was taken out the window of my van while I was in line to get my salad at Zaxby's.

Rainbows have special meaning for me--I always feel like God is placing them in the sky just for me to remind me of his love. I know this is part of the reason he gave a rainbow to Noah but because I've seen rainbows at pretty intense times in my life --they always seem to show up in those times I like to believe they are just for me. Don't go stealing my thunder!

And lastly, a couple of baby things for you. I was at Target over the weekend and saw these things that I thought were called "passy pods". We are forever losing passy's and I am spending a fortune replacing them. I googled passy pods and got various and sundry things for passy and pods but not what I was looking for. Anyone know what I am talking about and where I can find them?

I also also very intrigued by the whole "baby legs" thing. I'm thinking if I got some for B my husband may balk and say they are too girly? What do ya'll think? They have some cool patterns that are way boyish but then again they are rather like leg warmers.....which is really what they are.....

anyway -- I'm off to do something really fun that I have honestly NEVER had done. I cannot wait. I'll be sure and share it with you all later!
