Do you ever loose pacis with those things?
Nope! The Wubbanubs are great! The pacis come permanently attached and they make great snuggle toys as well as the paci. Keeghan loves them!
OK, I read in the last post to notice the ball....did Keeghan put it there or did Kenn throw it and it boinked off his head? LOL
Yeah Kennedy threw it right at Keeghan's head! LOL She has good aim! :)
Anyways, did Keeghan cry after that hit? Poor guy, the little ones always get the blunt end.
Nope! He's used to getting beat up by the big kids! haha
he is so adorable. how do you do such cute pics and graphics??
Paint shop pro, but you can also use adobe photoshop. :)
Kennedy looks really pretty with her hair do... what I want to know is? How did you get her to be still while you did her hair? :)
I bribed her with goldfish crackers and cartoons... and I told her to HOLD STILL a lot! haha
Kennedy's hair looks so cute! Isn't it fun to be able to play with her hair again? It looks so light in these pic's. So, is it the pic's or is it really getting lighter?
Yes, it is!!! And yes, it is finally lightening up a little. I keep hoping she'll end up as blond as she was before.
She is too cute. Do you hire out for potty training.
Uhhh NO! Not for a bajillion dollars! :)
Does Kennedy do well with signing? The sign for potty is very easy and she would be able to do it whether you are out and about or at home and other people would know what she is wanting.
Oh yes, she knows over 200 signs, but she talks WAY more than she signs at this point. She mostly signs for fun :). She's capable of telling me she has to go, she just won't for whatever reason.
Do her panties fit tight like a pullup does? If so you might try looser (bigger?) panties.
Yes, they do, that's a thought, I will try that!
So what is she wearing at home? Her birthday suit? Or the panties?
At home she is usually in a dress with nothing underneath and she does great!
Ken's will be there in no time and you will then say to yourself, "that wasn't so bad!"
I was thinking about Kennedy the other day and I was wondering how her pin sites are doing? Also, thanks so much for those books that you listed! I'm currently reading My Sister's Keeper, and I can't seem to put it down! It's an amazing book. Thanks again!
I'm glad you're enjoying it! I couldn't put it down either! Kennedy's pin sites are doing well. The scars in the front are small and are healing nicely. The scars in the back are pretty big... 2 of them are nickel size... the other 2 dime size. One of them still keeps breaking open, but they're not infected anymore. We just gotta get the darn thing to heal!
How do you find out those? they are hilarious!!!
Sitemeter. It's a wonderful thing!
Oh I LOVE no mo chemo parties, did they have a song? Ours goes like this and it's to the tune of "my bologna has a first name the oscar meyer song"
Our patients have the cutest S-M-I-L-Es
Our patients have the sweetest H-E-A-R-Ts
Oh we love to see you everyday but now it's time we get to say
pack up your bags head out the door you don't need chemo anymore!
I have heard that before! :o) Our hospital doesn't sing it, but they should! :o)
And it reminded me that when we PCSed this summer, I did not change the contact info on my bone marrow donor stuff. And now, I can't find the website. Will you send it to me please?
Absolutely! www.marrow.org. Thanks for being a donor!
I think you and I own the same camera. Is yours a Cannon Rebel EOS?
YES! I love it!!! :)
Lifetime actually put out a "real" DVD of the plain truth movie. I have it if you would like to borrow it at some point. If you can hold off until the Buddy Walk, I'll be happy to bring it to you.
That would be fabulous!! Thanks so much!
How far is Cincinnati from you?
It's about a 4 hour drive. It's actually a nice, easy drive. I enjoyed all the time to just sit and think.
I do LOVE the video, but I think the ARC needs to either change their name completely or advertise a new acronym!
I totally agree!!
Renee have you ever been to this families blog..their little girl is 5 years old (they adopted from Guatemala) and she has Cancer..I thought you'd like to see her blog!!! soo sad..
Yes! I visit there often and pray for them all the time!
Remember when I was going through that with Jas and we went to Disneyland and she peed ALL over the place?!?
YES! LOL That was a fun day! Pee and all! haha
My husband and I are adopting a 2 month old who has DS. Do you have any advice for us or recommend any good books? We are very excited!!!
CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Check out Road Map to Holland. Also, for online support check out Downsyn. There is a great forum of parents there who would love to share your journey! As far as advice, Early Intervention is key! Fill your house with language rich toys and surroundings. Talk talk talk A LOT. Get your little one involved with peers, friends, other kids he/she can model after. Never put a limit on what you think he/she is able to do. The sky is the limit! :) And the most important thing of course, which I'm sure you already know, is lots and lots of love!! Please drop back by and keep us posted!
