Here goes what I can remember of March. At the end of February and the beginning of March, the girls and I took a quick trip down to Augusta. We had a blast hanging out at Uncle Travis and Aunt Carrie's house. Grandma even came to join the fun. My girls are loving getting to know my Grandma. I want them to have every opportunity to send time with her because she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's a little over a year ago. I want to her have as many positive memories of my girls as possible.
Ava enjoyed holding Corah more than Kenly ever has, but then again, Ava gets to send Corah home with us.
Just a typical Saturday morning with everyone hanging out on the king size bed in our room.
Doesn't that look good? Okay...maybe not, but it was a fun holiday memory for my family, and that is all that matter.
I keep trying to capture Corah's beautiful blue eyes in a photo, but nothing I take does them justice. Just take my word for it...they are beautiful. Not icy, but a rich, deep blue.
So proud to be planting something of her very own. I'm sad to say that these seeds were harvested by some pesky squirrels, but we planted a second round of the same seeds and they are happily thriving and climbing a trellis at the end of the driveway.
Kenly loves the beach. She loves the waves as long as she has a "wing man" to keep her steady. One of our favorite things to do at Edisto is to look for sharks' teeth. I got really good at finding them this trip. I found the most, but Adam found the best tooth of all. All of the teeth are beautifully fossilized. Adam found a tooth from a Great White. It is nearly three inches long and probably close to an inch wide. It's amazing!
I love Kenly's shadow in this picture.
Introducing solids of every sort soon lead to some gastrointestinal issues for Corah. I finally had to take her to the doctor in June and July. She was severely constipated. We are finally resolving some of those issues, but Corah is now on a daily laxative. The doctor wants her to take 2 teaspoons of Miralax a day. To give you some perspective, the average dose for a child her age and weight is 1/4 teaspoon. The problem is getting her to take it. She's on a bottle strike right now, and for awhile we couldn't get her to take juice or water out of a sippy. But, we've finally found a few cups that she will use. Since the Miralax has to be dissolved in a liquid, we are relieve that she is finally taking fluid from some other source than my breast. We are not out of the woods yet, but we are so much better.
