Since Jude was born in sept Ive been really very busy and not had much time for this board .. Update is as follows..Jude is still very small and not following a normal growth chart so we are at the docs once a month to figure out why.. My daughter is still having appts with the orthopedist about her legs and feet..It appears we will be starting braces on her legs soon and also special shoes for her feet because she is walking on the outstep of her feet. Recently separated from my children's father and I really have no time for anything..especially the internet. I'm hoping to get back here more often now that I'm getting used to being a single mom. Keep up all of your mommy awesomeness girls!
Thank you for the update. I hope that everything goes well with your daughter and grtting her used to braces and such. I am sure that will make a world of difference. I hope all is going to be just fine with Jude with his growth. Hopefully he is just a slow grower. My thoughts and prayers are with u
It sounds like you have a lot going on! I don't blame you for not going on here much-I do it in bouts. Some days I frequent the board often, then I will skip a week!
I know we have another baby on here that is small as well, I think it is runningmommyto3's daughter (sorry if I am wrong!) but I know her name is Bailey. Maybe you guys can talk about it, since it feels nice to know that you are not alone in the circumstances you are in.
I hope the braces work and that they are not too much of a hassle. And I am so sorry that you are separated from the children's father, single parenting is tough! Good luck with everything and hope to see you around from time to time!
my goodness you have had a lot to deal with latley! I'm sorry about our daughter and haveing to get the leg braces, hopefully she will adjust to them quickley! I also hope all is good with baby Jude and hes just a small baby! I'm sorry about seperating from your SO, thats always a handful to deal with. I hope things slow down for you here soon! and thanks for the update!
I'm so sorry! That is a lot of stress all at once. It's good to see you back and thank you for the update. I am also on in spurts depending on how crazy my life is at the moment. Kimber is right! I do have the very small daughter, Bailey. We're in the middle of trying to figure out why she's not growing as she should. She's currently off the charts at 12lb 8oz at 6 months old. I would love to talk more with you and compare our experiences as this has been a very long and frustrating process of figuring out what's causing her to be so tiny and what's causing the abnormalities in her blood and urine. If you want, PM me your email and we can email back and forth, or if you're on FB, I can find you and we can message through there. I need support and direction from someone who is going through something similar, so maybe it can be mutually beneficial to talk. Ami (3Sapphires) also has a small little guy with Lincoln. Although, I believe her dr is not concerned at the moment about his growth. Maybe we should set up a mini-group on FB or open a chat session with the three of us to talk/compare/offer support for our similar experiences.

I am sorry things have been so stressful for you! I hope the doctors figure out what's wrong (if anything) with baby Jude. I'm sorry to hear about you and your SO. I hope things get easier for you very soon. You and Jude are in my prayers!
