Update on Carlow's medical and Life in general!

Hi Everyone, Okay this might just end up one very long paragraph because it's not letting me separate and use the enter key. Okay so Carlow first we have been to the Geneticist Dr. Bay in Lexington she is very sweet and listened and asked questions. Carlow has ectrodactyly with very mild ectrodermal dysplaysia symptoms (peg tooth and thin hair growth). We are just very pleased to know what we are dealing with! Carlow is the sweetest little boy with a smile that will melt your heart. He is also most likely going to be our sprinter when he gets older. He is trying to mimic our sounds now which is so funny he has a very high pitch voice still so baby like. We will try and capture it on video and embed it so you can hear it as well. Shriners has taken a wait and see attitude with his feet as well and I'm not at all comfortable with that. I want him to not have foot pain when he is older and if that means doing something now I would like to be doing something NOW. So we will probably try and get a second opinion early next year. Well now let me update you on our Cordie she is really trying to be the older sister and she wants to be little Mama which doesn't work for me lol. So we are working on changing that to Mama's helper instead of little miss boss a lot. It works some of the time hoping, with work it will be more effective.She is hyper sensitive especially if your correcting her. She has also just grown by leaps and bounds she is wearing most 5T things I still have to either find slims, adjustable waists or just take them up by hand for them to fit her right. Her hair is getting so long and I can't believe that she will have been ours for 2 yrs this coming March. Seems like she has been ours since the beginning of time. I have started holding the girls and singing to them before bed, just silly songs that I have made up in my head now they want them every night I guess I'm going to have to write the words down because I can't remember them the same and the "remind me" how it's supposed to go. Cordie has just surprised me so much lately we were putting our tree up for Christmas and I asked the girls to tell me what Christmas...Here's their version of Jesus's life....Mary and Joseph had baby Jesus he is God's son and he had to sleep in the hay because they didn't have room any where else. And then Jesus grew up and he died for our skins but he's not dead he rose again and he lives in our hearts. Katie well let me tel you about our little ham and cheese she went RUNNING through the house yesterday and slammed into the bedroom door I thought I was going to have to make a trip to the emergency room she hit right above her left eye it's still swollen ad if we hadn't had ice on it immediately she wouldn't have been able to open it at all. She is doing much better and is enjoying telling anyone who will listen about her boo boo. Well I'm going to close this now I have been working on this on and off all day as the kids permit. Love and God Bless you all, Bekah

3 AM no sleep + 3 Kids + Dr. Appointments + 3 hour Drive home =????

That should = 9 hours worth of pampering? 9 hours of someone rubbing my feet and brushing my hair? 9 hours of peace and quiet?
LOL but no that just equals LIFE and theres no time for any of that! OH but I can wish!
I don't know what it is but every time we visit Tracye we lose something last time we lost a BIG BAG of our bows and bands we use to put our hair up, this time I was really upset getting the girls dressed the girls Dora shoes each had one missing from the same foot. Thankfully we found the shoes after much searching.
We have a long day ahead of us and I will post about it soon. Please pray that I make it through the day with so little sleep I'm already tired LOL and that doesn't bode well for the day. Bekah

Shriners and Carlow's little feet

Hey everyone we have another appointment at Shriners on Tuesday for Carlow's feet I am in prayer that God leads the Dr.s to make the best choices for him. We are a little concerned about how he walks, don't get me wrong you will never find a child who can move faster! When I prayed for my little Lightening Bug what was I thinking! LOL
But seriously he is walking on the side of his left foot it is turning out and I don't want to hurt him but putting shoes on feels like I'm having to turn his foot to get his shoe on. We are in prayer that this is something that the Dr.s can fix and that when he grows it will not slow him down one bit.
On a much lighter note! We are yet again going to visit with Tracye!! YEAH!!! And even higher note my sister in love is going with me!!!!!! So Wan Chun will get to meet Tracye and via versa!
On yet another note I'm not looking forward to this drive and for the life of me I can't find Carlow's immunization book AHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
Life with 3 kids has been challenging and with Brad starting a new job and being at work instead of around the house the kids are having to adjust to that it's not been easy. Lets start with little miss Cordie cutting the back of her hair (no I don't have pics) I was trimming their hair and whoaaaa what's this? A section of her hair is layered in the back! Then I notice that beside her bangs is some shorter pieces also.... her loving sister Katie helped in this hair cut!
Okay and shall we begin the list of things they are attmpting to get away with lol Cordie wants to be the little Mama and boss everyone else around Katie has taken the role of I'm sorry were you talking to me? and Carlow well he feels that his smile should just melt your heart and make you bend to his will (yes it's hard to resist!) Over all life is busy but wonderful and I wouldn't change one thing except to give me more of the horrible P (patience) word and I'm not asking Lord I promise! Some days I feel like I'm rushing to get through things instead of enjoying them! But honestly it's hard to get out the door with two girls who as your going out the door realise they have to go and one sometimes doesn't make it! And about that time Carlow figures it's bathroom time okay and mommy gets to change his stinky diaper! LOL I know these days will be gone before I know it because Katie and Cordie have just grown up so fast. They have matured and have become beautiful little girls instead of my babies!
Okay closing this now cause I'm getting weepy and all mushy no one wants to hear all this stuff LOL
Hugs nad God Bless you all,
