Thanks for all your prayers for Caileigh - her procedure went well and she is getting back to herself. She had a rough time in recovery trying to calm down but did much better when she got home. She is not a fan of the ear drops though so hopefully she'll get used to them.
And the 2 week countdown is on for Keira to get out of her brace! The dr said her hips seem good and no more clicking. He also said, "boy she doesn't miss many meals does she"!! Those legs are getting chunky!
Well all the teasing about Caileigh snoring will soon stop because she's getting her adnoids out next Friday. Our visit to the ENT revealed she has enlarged adnoids which prevent the fluid in her middle ear from draining & in turn caused her hearing loss among other things. But it should stop her snoring, her runny noses and improve her hearing! So please keep her and the doctors in your prayers next Friday for a smooth procedure.
Well thanks to her older cousin Meghan, Caileigh's favorite phrase has become "I popped your personal bubble" which she likes to say while shaking her head and her finger at you and adding a hip shake for good measure. What it means, no one except 7th graders are sure. Its either that or "hey sista!" coupled with the
"Alligator Crocodile" cheer - we'll try to catch that on video.
And little miss Keira is smiling all the time now! She's looking all around when you talk to her too. She's doing good with her brace - only 3 1/2 more weeks to wear it!
Well "pukey" I mean Caileigh is doing better just a small ear infection. Keira meanwhile is now 9 lbs 6 oz and a little over 21 inches! She's in the 50th percentile for height and weight. Way to go Keira!
I know this site is for Caileigh and Keira news but today I wanted to add that its been 17 years since my dad passed away. 17 years, almost as long as I knew him. Seems like a lifetime but also like yesterday. Love you dad!
Busy weekend here mostly doing puke laundry. Caileigh got hit with a bug Thursday night and spent most of the night throwing up poor kid. She felt better Saturday but it came back again tonite so hopefully it will pass soon.
We had a Steeler party for the Super Bowl and Caileigh helped decorate with streamers and balloons and waived her Terrible Towel the whole game. She was disappointed that she didn't get to go to the Super Bowl this time (and so was Keira!). Don't tell the Rooneys but every time we have a baby the Steelers win the Super Bowl!!
