Cause and Effect

I haven't posted all week, because it's been a really crazy week! We had a ton of appointments, and I spent down time either holding Kendall or with a phone attached to my ear sorting out insurance stuff! It didn't leave much time for blogging. I'm behind on every body's posts and don't really know what's going on in the world either. Some days it seems like I can't get outside my little bubble. There just aren't enough hours in the day to return phone calls or e-mails and do homework, pack lunches, make dinner, etc. (sigh...I'm such a frazzled housewife! ha!)

Anyway, tomorrow we leave for our road(ie)trip! I'm really excited. It will be hard though to leave Justin, the kids, and the dogs behind for a few days of good music, food, and sleep. ( won't be that hard at all...who am I kidding?) I'm extremely ready to get away and this week made it even more needed!

We picked up Kendall's AFO's today. And surprisingly, she didn't mind them one bit. I think they're pretty cute, but given the cost of those darn things, she has a much more expensive shoe collection than Mommy now.

Despite her constant need to be held and danced around during waking hours, Kendall's had a pretty good week. Her seizures have not shown their ugly faces since the last time...I think about 2 weeks ago. So, the diet, g-button, and insulin regimen have been going really well. I pray they continue through the weekend.

Thankfully we got this really cool baby carrier for bigger kids from Holly. Caleigh weighs a little more than Kendall (he!he!) so she no longer uses it. I absolutely love it and wonder why I didn't get one sooner. It has saved my neck and back the past few days. It also helped me realize a new skill Kendall has. She understands cause and effect. This is really the only time other than activating switches I have noticed it. She loves to be flipped upside down and laughs uncontrollably when Justin does it. She figured out if she drops her pacifier, I have to bend over and she gets the same sensation. She must have dropped that darn thing 100 times today. She thinks its great :)

Oh, and I almost forgot. Kamden found out today he got the lead role in the 3rd grade play! Its in December and he gets to stand to the side in front of a microphone the entire time! He's very proud of himself. I'm already stressed about it. If you followed my blog last year, you know the excruciating embarrassment I found in his booger picking/eating. Hopefully this year he will abstain. And not forget his lines!!

So, I'm off to get packing and prepare Kendall's food for the next few days. Wish Justin luck....

Jocie, have a great time and enjoy you deserve this vacation. Kendall will be just fine with her great Dad. This will be a wonderful time for Justin to continue to bond with his beautiful daughter. Have Justin call me if there is anything I or Mom can do. We love you and hope you have a great time with Kristin and Train. Love Big Ed
