Whew! What a week it has been. I know it has been so long since I have posted anything, but I’m back. Last Tuesday, we took Sadie to see her geneticist. Her appointment was earlier in the day so we thought we could take Reagan with us and then go to the zoo afterwards. So, we loaded up in the car and made the big trip to Ft. Worth.
Sadie’s appointment went great! Her geneticist is so impressed with her development that she said she won’t need to see her for a whole year. That was amazing news to us as I am sure you can imagine. She was happy and smiling all morning for the doctor. Sadie is very much a happy baby. Not much upsets her. Her basic states of mind are happy, hungry, playful, and did I mention happy? Now don’t get me wrong, she definitely has her fair share of tantrums, but for the most part she is a very easy to please little girl. After her appointment, my husband and I went to a nearby lab to get our blood drawn because we are getting our genetic testing done. This will let us know if Sadie’s syndrome was a fluke thing or if one of us was a carrier for it. Either way, she is still amazingly beautifully perfect!
After we were done with our lab work, we took Reagan’s temperature because she was acting off. Turns out she had 102 fever. So, instead of the zoo, we gave her some Tylenol and ate lunch. We went to El Fenix because they have the absolute BEST chips. Of course Reagan wanted some hot sauce, so what did we do? We gave it to her, but it was after we told her that it was really hot and she kept insisting that she get some. Now, for those of you that don’t know my two year old….well she is two and she is the queen of our household so she demands a lot from us. We are working on that. But anyways, after she got her hot sauce she immediately stuck her tongue out and looked at me like “Mom, why didn’t you tell me it was hot?”.
Sadie, enjoyed our lunch just as much as we did. That was until a very sweet older grandma that sat next to us decided that she wanted to hold Sadie while I ate my lunch. Talk about having a little freak out (On my part). I had no idea what to do, and before I even had time to react she was holding Sadie. That was the fastest lunch I have ever eaten. I mean I didn’t even eat half of it because I was concentrating so hard on the fact that this sweet little lady (which she was incredibly kind and nice) whom I didn’t know was holding my child. Now, some of you are probably thinking “Why the heck did you let some stranger hold your child?” Let me tell you why. I have absolutely no boundaries. It is horrible really. I feel awful when I tell people no. If I feel like I am disappointing or letting someone down, I won’t tell them no. Now, that doesn’t mean that if I felt like this woman was going to do harm to my child I wouldn’t have told her no. I promise I would have, but she was very kind and completely harmless. She even told me that she has three grandbabies of her own! Anyways, let’s move on. After our lunch we took Reagan to Academy and Best Buy because her fever was gone. You will be shocked to know that she arrived home with a brand new pair of sparkly blue flip flops (or “sip sops” as she used to call them) and the movie The Good Dinosaur. All in all it was a fantastic day and a great little family adventure!
