My baby is walking

Halle has the baby walk going on. She has been trying to get it down for awhile now. I think she finally has it figured out! She takes about 5-15 steps, and has been trying to stand up after she falls down. I have shed a few tears of happiness and a little sadness. I don't know how other people handling their baby growing up. With Mason and Adalyn I knew I would have more so I was so excited for them. This time she is my forever baby, and she's walking. She is not my teeny tiny baby anymore. Which is good and I love her little personality more than ever lately. She is still a mommas girl, which I don't think will ever get old!

This is such an amazing accomplishment not only for a preemie, but for having turners syndrome. With turners syndrome they usually walk around 2, and miss Halle is 18 months. She is doing amazing, I can't wait to show her physical therapist how well she's doing. 

We were picking Mason up from his last day of kindergarten, and Halle wanted down like she usually does. She just took off walking, she was doing awesome! It was the first time she has even wanted to let go of my hands other than the house. We got our first of many to come, comments. Oh my gosh, she is too little to be walking! She is 15 pounds and 26 inches, she is on a roll with getting taller. Today she was wearing a 0-3 month outfit, until she made a huge mess with lunch. She hasn't even come close to mastering the using of utensils.  I told Halle that it was now time to join the circus. Lol  I just think she likes all of the attention she gets, I'm worried I have another Adalyn on my hands. Sisters are going to fight for attention, luckily Mason is a good sport and gives them both the attention that they need. He is an amazing big brother!

Feeling so blessed

Some days it's so hard to see past the day. Going to doctors, therapist, then having them send you to more doctors. It's so exhausting mentally, physically, and emotionally.  Trying to keep bills from pilling up and trying to organize everything can be so trying some days. I 
 hate that doctors visits have to take so much of our time. Cleaning, cooking, then cleaning again, homework, the list is endless. 

Then things like yesterday happen. The Oklahoma  tornado. I'm so blessed to have my husband and kids on earth with me. It's moments you here about people losing their kids so young. That pulls at your heart. It makes me give my kids and extra hug and kiss at night, more I love you's. I have a hard time sometimes remembering how happy we truly are and how many blessing we have. It's usually not too far off my mind, and I'm reminded.  My kids are daily reminders how blessed I am, every baby is a miracle. I just have just have special miracles, each one is even more so.

Obamacare has already started!

We have, wait, had good insurance. Until recently my husbands work really has no choice but to go to a cheaper plan, as they can't afford to pay everyone's insurance. Thanks to Obamacare. 

 For my family this is the worst thing. We see so many doctors, specialty doctors that are now going to be VERY expensive to see. We average about $200 a month just seeing doctors and therapists. We have her monthly bills on top of that number. We are going to at least double that number a month!! I've only read bits and prices of this bill, and what I've read is crap! Do you realize the government is going to control that ALL doctors get paid the same. We are going to have less specialty doctors. I mean why would someone pay more to get let's say a cardiologist degree when they will be payed the same as a family doctor? If your on Obamacare, they have the right to not pay for expensive life saving medical treatment. That will have to come from your own pocket!! For example if I was on Obamacare when I had Halle they would NOT of even tried to save her without me saying I would come up with the money! That's ludicrous the government has the right to decided who lives and who dies?? My family is going to suffer tremendously from this bill. I'm scared for the future, if Halle does end up needing a heart transplant which this new insurance WON'T cover we will be financially ruined, she's totally worth it and I would do it without thinking. 

 The other thing that bothers me is the government that is going to be able to control our health? Yeah them they are EXEMPT from this bill!  If its so good and going to change America for the better then why wouldn't they jump on this train? We are getting poorer as the months keep rolling in, are taxes went up, not blaming Obama for that one that would of happened regardless. But this new insurance with how much I'm going to have to spend a month just to keep my children healthy. Is going to be an adjustment. That's my rant for the day! These are my feelings and thoughts and how I perceived the bill from like I said reading parts.
