Hope's christening dress has arrived

These are not her christening dresses. You'll have to wait and see, but I can tell you, it is beautiful. We were fortunate enough to have had a lady bring round her supplies so we could try in the comfort of home-though Honk wasn't overly impressed. I was sorely tempted by a couple of these dresses, but dismissed them on the basis that a) it didn't come with a bonnet, or b) comfort/or rather lack of it. Yes some of the dresses were fabulous, but if next Saturday is going to be as hot as it has been, then Hope wouldn't be comfy at all. Her dress is beautiful, tradional, and practical. Bought for her my Nanny-not cheap, but worth every penny. Thanks Mum. Though H is baby number 4, this is the first time one of the babies will be wearing a gown. Jordan was 2 and a half, and Max 18 months at their joint christening, so too big for gowns, and poor lil Sammy only had a nappy and lots of wires in his incubator baptism :O(

Today I have upped Honk's dose of Vigabatrin to 3mls. It's taken it's toll. She's irritable, lost her appitite and sleepy. But she should be on the full dose of 6mls twice daily by now. She seemed to have been tolerating the 2ml dose well, but the seizures had been creeping back up, suggesting it was time to up the dosage. Fingers crossed that this will be the suitable med for her, at least until she's big enough to go onto Depokate.

Going completely off track, now I've started this blog, I'm pondering about setting blogs up for J and M too (Sam already has his own site). I'm thinking I could record their achievements and history, and then perhaps one day hand them over to them so they can blog theirselves. Mind you, Doll (J) would be more than capable of doing that herself now- but then I'd never get the laptop-it's bad enough already! Currently, I am resisting Doll's nagging that she NEEDS facebook.
Much love from Me and Princess Plonk xxx
