T. G. I. F.

Another day, another doctor's appointment.

Look - Francesca has clothes on!!!

Isabella is such a good big sister!

This appointment was with a geneticist. She said she knew that Francesca has Aperts Syndrome, but she suggested that we still do an giant panel of expensive blood work just to have it officially confirmed. Uh, no thanks!

She also suggested that Victoria go see a neurologist. Apparently there are hundreds of different forms of Arthrogryposis, and many are genetic. She said the neurologist could do a muscle biopsy to confirm ONE type because Victoria will need to know this when she has kids. Having the biopspy won't change her treatment at all though. Considering she is only two, I think we can hold off on that for a little while!!!

My kids are the best. Look what they made me for lunch!

After dinner (a BIG thank you to Theresa for the Chinese food! I would never eat anything besides cereal without her!), we danced around the kitchen like wild women. Francesca was bobbing her head up and down and Victoria was twirling a cup, laughing hysterically.

Who knows what craziness we'll come up with tomorrow!
