This kid. My boy. He’s mischievous. He wants to wear camo everyday & his new favorite color is green. He loves dinosaurs, shooters, monster trucks, @blippiofficial & Powell. It’s kids like him that the child-lock safety feature was invented.

Just in the last week, this girl has mastered sitting up like a little pro. I told her pediatrician I may knock her over if she dares to try crawling anytime soon. I’m all too familiar with how fast these baby days pass & I’m not even a tiny bit ready for her independence to show up.

She’s learned to sit up. She can roll both ways, & rolls everywhere. She loves to sleep with a little silk bunny or muslin blanket by her cheek, with her paci. She’s the most content baby. She’s found her thumb & her feet. She loves her big sister & brother, but not when they squeeze too tight. She grabs for everything & thinks she’s wants to try table food. She had her first taste of avocado & was not a fan either time we tried it. She’s a good sleeper & still likes to be swaddled. She really enjoys being outside & taking a bath.

the way she looks at me makes me wish she’d stay little forever. .

This wild, 2 1/2 year old is the sweetest boy. It’s like he knows how stressed things have been & just how much the girls have needed me. He’s shared & loved on all of us. There is no such thing as a bad day when he squishes my cheeks for a kiss, wraps both arms around me for the biggest tiny hug, or throws me that too cute for words smile he’s got. Britt man, I love you to the moon. 🌙

Today she proclaimed she’s the blue superhero girl. She picked her dress, coordinated her cast wrap with her scooter, & added the blue cape & flower crowns for “the perfect touch.”
.
She says she’s strong, brave, & super fast. I think so too, baby girl. 💙

On your marks, get set, go! 🏁 The race is on for Lolli, Joy Belle, & Britt. So thankful for my mom’s help while I work & in all the other times in between.

#ourBrittColby brought me flowers... those dimples on his hands & the smile on face - I hope I never forget the little things.

Today’s appointment turned out to be less traumatic than I had anticipated. After examining her today, he thinks she’s doing really well - was impressed with her walking & moving around. He’s happy with the positions of her feet & let me know these tendons take 6 weeks to heal. Therefore, he will not be removing her casts until April 8th. (We misinformed by a nurse that thought it had already been 6 weeks since her surgery.) He did let me know, after doing her surgery, that her feet are oddly tight. 20% of clubfoot cases are associated with other genetic disorders or syndromes. Basically, it is odd for her feet to be this tight & her not have any genetic disorder or syndrome.
He also let me know that this surgery is not a fix all (like we believed last January) but an improvement. Her feet are going to be a work in progress for awhile. Which honestly, sucks to think about... but oddly, all I can think is how thankful I am that she was designed just as God intended. Even if the journey is different, harder, & longer than we anticipated, it could be so much worse. (These feelings are 100% proof that God answers prayer.)
There is no light at the end of this tunnel YET, but healing in the name of Jesus. His timetable just isn’t mine.
