Our 1st Christmas as a Family

Well, Christmas has once again come and gone, but this will be one to remember. Not only was this our first Christmas together as a family, which was amazing, but also because our little one spent Christmas Eve night in the Emergency Room. She began feeling ill and we could not get her fever to break. So, at 2:30 A.M., we decided we had to go to the ER. When we arrived with her, her fever was 102.6. She was diagnosed with Strep Throat and was given a shot. We've been rotating Motrin and Tylenol for 3 days and she still isn't feeling up to par. I've been so worried about her. I know that God will take care of her, so with a little time and rest and TLC, she'll bounce back soon. I can't believe her first Christmas has been so miserable for her, though. She has good moments and then some very bad ones. I feel so sorry for her. I hope your Christmas was a merry one and I hope your new year will be the best ever. Enjoy the pictures!!!

Karsynn Update

Well, we are coming up on our 4 month anniversary of coming home, so I thought it was time to update Karsynn's progress. So, here's the scoop:

Walking Yet? No, she just isn't confident enough to take off, though I think she's ready just any time.

Talking Yet? All day long: dada, mummum, gigi (Bentley), Bitick (Biscuit), duck, Dora

Sleeping Yet? NO...enough said.

Karsynn is already so smart. She loves to read ALL BOOKS! She recognizes characters in the book, points to them when you prompt her and knows how to turn the pages herself. She loves Peek a Boo books with flaps and hidden objects. She also really likes texture books. We read to her everyday.

Eating Table Food? Not fully. She's still eating Stage 2 foods, but we are experimenting with table food. She only has 8 front teeth, so nothing to grind with yet. She does love ham, turkey, cheese, crackers, marshmallows, mandarin oranges, pears, bananas, and PIZZA, yes Pizza! She is still taking formula bottles, but that's because Mommy isn't ready to put the bottles away yet. She just hasn't mastered the use of a sippy cup yet.

New Experiences: Karsynn had her first long car ride to Gatlinburg, TN over Thanksgiving Break. We stayed in a chalet with friends and had a wonderful time. She also went just last night to see Disney Playhouse LIVE at Rupp Arena and LOVED IT!! She saw Mickey Mouse and his crew, The Little Einsteins, Pooh and Tigger and Handy Manny and his Tools. We really enjoyed ourselves and she danced and jumped the whole time. Thanks Daddy!!!! You're the best!

Thanks for continuing to follow our life journey.
