2.15.2017 - Jackie got some good sleep last night and is acting much more like herself this morning πŸ’œ Her heart rate and blood pressure were both running low overnight but I'm hoping that will resolve today. They are keeping a close eye on her and the nursing staff has been great. She was so happy to have some baby food by mouth this morning ❀️ Positioning for feeding was tricky with this cast; we elevated the bed, dada propped her by the cast and I spoon feed her. This clunky thing will be her constant companion for the next 5-6 weeks 😫 it's gonna be tons of fun πŸ™ƒπŸ˜πŸ™„πŸ˜’ #CHARGEon #hipdysplasia #spicacast #chargesyndrome #warrior

My baby girl is walking!!! I feel like they are her first steps ever πŸ˜‚ #spicacast #itsalmostoff @ptdawg504

Even though these two goofballs gave me the scare of my life Sunday night, they're still being silly as usual. So thankful that neither of them were hurt worse in the accident. It's gonna be a tough 6 weeks with this spica cast but Mari is strong and smart and we'll pull through, especially with the support of our friends and family ❀️ #hellobabymariko #spicacast

Surprised my sister with a visit to California this weekend! Im so glad Denis and I were able to go help out with Luna for Stella's procedure. Also, thank you to all my friends who although may not know my niece, kept Stella in your prayers. πŸ’•#StellaVivianaAntu #LunaValentinaAntu #hipdysplasia #hippybaby #spicacast

This is for @mrs_arnall but also documenting for #hugoshealthyhipsjourney this is how Hugo has slept with cast number two! One pillow under his head and one pillow under his legs to support them and take the pressure off. We also gave him his Mr Splits from @kippins_ which we haven't done before even pre casts he didn't have this in with him, I'll explain why. Initially we popped the blanket on over the top as per previous cast but we had a scare, which I posted about, where he got the blanket wrapped around his head. You should be able to see in this photo that we've now got half the blanket underneath the pillow supporting his legs so that he can't pull the blanket up and wrap it around himself anymore. We gave him Mr Splits so that he has something to nibble on, throw over his face, whatever he likes to do with it as he no longer can do that with the blanket... we assume that's what he had been doing when he got it stuck. We keep his room at 22 degrees and have a fan going as he gets quite sweaty in the cast and he wears a long sleeve onesie to keep his arms warm.

Little stinker! When he sees the phone, he tries so hard to hold back those smiles! πŸ˜‚ #Ornery

This is how you feed a broken toddler who has refused to eat for a week. #whateverworks #spicacast #fedisbest

No limits 😍 #spicacast #hipdysplasia πŸ€—

Well, it's been a rough 24+ hours. Stella's procedure went great but she's been in a lot of pain and discomfort. A special thank you to @kcarreon1190 and @denis_carreon for flying in and watching Luna during this time. And thank you to our City Church family for all the messages, prayer and FOOD! We love you all! #hipdysplasia #hippybaby #spicacast

Went in for a check up walked out with an extra πŸ˜‚ Dr recommend a bar to reinforce the spica as it was already flexing. Hasnt stopped him fitting into his pram nor car seat. Now to see if he'll fit in his spica table. #nathansjourneytohealthyhips #healthyhipsaustralia #ddhawareness #hipdysplasia #spica #spicacast #spicalife #spicatable

At the ortho clinic for Nathans 2 week post op check up. Yup, still going crazy on his teething necklace. We may also get to see his MRI results taken after his op. #nathansjourneytohealthyhips #healthyhipsaustralia #ddhawareness #spicacast #spicalife #spica #pmh

Just finished our first baby rhyme time at the library. Nathan was so good and enjoyed meeting other babys. Perfect way to start the week.

Not letting her cast get her down πŸ’• out for a long walk in the park . Anything to distract her 😊 #bravelittlegirl #brokenfemur #spicacast #toddlerlife #mysunshine #dailyparenting #momlife #pinkcast

I was going to put this goofy picture in my instastory, but I decided I really like it (see previous post)
.
This is me, knowing I'm going to have more fun taking the silly photos my #toddler want to take of me and "Beebee". We laughed, we had fun, and that's what being a mom is all about.

Life doesn't always go the way you think it should, so just enjoy the ride. It may turn out better than you ever thought possible.

The last 9 days have been a little crazy. We've had to learn to swim in very unfamiliar, exhausting and sometimes frightening waters.
We've had injured kids before and even had a few bouts with broken bones. But nothing shook us up quite like having our toddler bust his femur.

A little over a week into this thing and I believe we're finding some balance. All of our kids have been absolutely amazing through this adjustment. And Steven is having NO issues bossing them around from his recliner 😏

Thankful for our friends. Thankful for our family. Thankful for those who love my kids. Thankful for our tribe. Thankful for our Jesus. Just thankful.
Our little guy gets a little bit better with each passing day. I have to admit, I'm really missing finding the messes he makes all over.

Perfect day celebrating my little super girl's first birthday. Thank you to all that came, helped or sent kind wishes. Avary had an amazing time with the people she loves and so did me and Simon. .

I'm having one of those "why didn't I think of this earlier" moments. The play mat on top of her beanbag chair so she has no pressure points, can see her mobile, and play with her toys while being fed! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

#momwin ! Now she's set! And excuse the banana 🍌

I would never leave her unattended like this - not that we ever can πŸ™ˆ #specialneedslife

I cannot wait to get to see those legs again tomorrow and to get out of this damn cast! #tbt #paxtonsarmy

Enjoyed spending time with my nieces. I think it's safe to say Luna and I are now best friends! πŸ˜„ #Disneyland #CaliforniaAdventure #LunaValentinaAntu #StellaVivianaAntu #HipDysplasia #HippyBaby #SpicaCast #Polaroid #ImpossibleProject πŸ“Έ
