Someday…that is what I always say…someday Maddie will eat, crawl, talk, walk, go to school etc., etc., etc…but then there is a someday…I will look back and miss the days that she did not, eat, crawl, talk, walk, go to school etc., etc., etc…I am just frustrated! That she will only eat Gerber cheetos, that she is on medication that I do not know if it is helping her or just another step to a Endocrinologist in Denver…frustrated that the someday of her making big milestones are so far and few between…that someday she eats on her own then she stops…some days she is interested in sitting up and others she is not…with Max he just took off…he hitched, scooted and crawled…when he walked…he ran…with Maddie it seems so slow and almost backwards…I am frustrated that the doctor did not check her blood count…does he not get I am scared…that we should be on top of her health issues not just wait and see…I hate taking a thyroid medication and waiting to see if in 6 weeks that is what is wrong...or maybe it is not…paging Dr. House! I need someone that wants to help my baby now not the lets see if this works theory! I am also frustrated that her tooth is not there anymore and her gums are showing no signs of teeth…what does the doctor say…he says someday they will come and we will wait and see! If by 17 months no teeth…then we will be concerned…who would have thought a extra little chromosome would have caused so much chaos:)~ So I am eagerly awaiting my someday…


  1. Kim-
    You are a wonderful person and Maddie and Max are the luckiest kids in the world to have a mom like you. Your strength will keep your family going, your smile will let them know that you love them. I am sorry you have to go through this but I can't help but think Maddie is the most loved little girl on this earth with you as a mom.

  2. I am so not the "wait and see" type!! I feel for you, I can imagine how frustrating that would be. I hope things go ok with Maddie, she is such a sweetheart!

  3. I know... waiting is hard. All those things we were anticipating, too, at one time. Between 12 and 15 months were actually the slowest growth period for John Michael. He didn't get taller, his weight stayed the same, he seemed to just kinda be in limbo with his development. We were told that his brain was developing and sometimes other things like the gross motor stuff would take a backseat for a little while. Well, "they" were right. One day soon, she'll surprise you again and show you all she's working on secretly while you think she's not. Hang in there and just try to enjoy her where she is day to day.

  4. Results - now! But wait, maybe not...
    Hugs mama. You ROCK. Whenever I wonder about my mothering abilities, I look to you. You are a great role model for me - full time working full time mama. Thanks for that.

  5. Aimee just introduced me to your little girl - WHAT A DOLLY! Cuteness personified!!! Such a sweetie!

    Kidlets have their own time frames and that is all there to it! Aimee got her first tooth at 18 months and that was fine with me; she did the up & down thing, too. I always thought "gumming" it was easier than chewing with a couple pokies in the way!

    Take a big breath, you are doing a great job! Come visit us when you are in Denver!
