The Disney Store Tangled(Repunzel) Doll

Leah loves the movie "Tangled" She has watched it on Netflix over and over again. She now knows the movie by heart. How could I not get her "Tangled" themed birthday gift. I began looking around for her a gift. I didn't really care for any of the dolls at local Walmart so I decided to look online when I discovered the Disney Store. Where I found a Repunzel doll. It came late so I decided to give it to her at her Birthday party. Which we had both the kids a Birthday party last weekend. She honestly thought we didn't get anything for her birthday party. Aww how sad :( we made her open it up last. She was so excited she got her very own Repunzel doll. It was one of those moments that just takes your breath away that you had or rather I had a hand in making her happy. I was beside myself and needless to say I almost cried. How corny is that. I'll post more pictures this week since its Devin's 1st Birthday this week I didn't want to share many of the Birthday pictures til then.

Leah on Seizures and new neurologist

Leah antious for Daddy to buy her some Chicken Nuggets from McDonald's

     I've been taking Leah to a Neurologist, whom specializes in Development. She's been seeing someone who specializes in Developmental & Speech Delay for about a year now. She was just seeing someone at the local school system. A year ago next Month we started going to her current neurologist when our regular doctor suggest we see someone who specializes in Development. She just turned 5 years old on October 13. A year ago she would talk but you couldn't understand anything she was saying. Even now there are times you have to ask her to repeat herself repeatedly. Her teacher she had last year is one of the best teachers I've ever met. She really went beyond the call of Duty. I also bought programs to put on my iPad which really helped her too. I know some may be against little ones used such high cost electronic gadgets, but I can't begin to tell you the progress she has made in the last year. Leah has staring spells quite often, which is a sign of seizures so her Developmental Neurologist said lets make sure she's not having seizures. So, they did an EEG about 6 months ago and said that she is in fact having seizures but that is all that was told me. I feel like I'm in the dark. So, at her 5 year Well-child I told her regular doctor of my concern. They wanted to make sure if it was okay with her current Nerologist if we get a 2nd opinion. They said they where fine with it since they don't specialize in seizures just development. We haven't got the referral in yet, however we do know that she is being sent to Nashville to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. I'm okay with that cause I've always heard they are one of the best Children's Hospitals around. I'll update when I know more. I'm glad she is going, that way I know nothing more is going on. 
     The current neurologist things she has what is called Absent seizures, that you don't know really when she had them But one day last week she was playing. I honestly feel she had a seizure. No it wasn't a jerking all over the places convulsing one but she had all the symptoms of having one. They are just going to check things out and make sure nothing else major is going on with her.

Not much happening

Hi Everyone, Hope this post finds everyone doing well. We’ve not been doing a whole lot lately especially with both of the kids being sick. First Leah was sick, she gotten Hand, Foot & Mouth Disease from another kid at school. First they break out with a fever then 3-4 days later they will break out with clear looking blisters on their hands, feet and inside their mouths. It’s not really that bad but it is contagious, especially for little ones. So of Course Devin ended up getting it as well, in addition to him already cutting his baby molars. For 2 weeks I believe both kids where tag teaming me and keeping me up at all hours of the day and night. We went to a Halloween Festival at our Church and the whole night Devin was up. Ugh!!!! talk about getting no rest. Needless to say the next day we didn’t attend church. Hubby let me go back to bed and he didn’t wake me and I slept til 10 a.m. and to be honest I could had slept longer, however I thought it was already late enough.

Finals are getting closer to being due in my Sociology 101 class, so I’ve started working on that. I am soooooo ready for a break, I’ll be glad when Christmas Arrives. I feel like my brain is fried, and that between housework, my children and school I don’t have a moment to myself. I have a few posting I’ve been thinking about doing over the next couple days, so please come back soon and look for them. It’s coming a storm here, so I must go. Have a great night.
