My Baby’s Hip Dysplasia

Our Story. Coping with my baby’s hip dysplasia wasn’t easy at first!  She was x-rayed when she was exactly 4 months old. Two days later our GP called & referred us to the hospital pediatric department. The doctor looked at the x-ray and said our daughter has severe hip dysplasia. She was put into a brace right then and there.  Two weeks later, we saw a specialist at Crumlin hospital in Dublin.  Our daughter has had lots x-rays & appointments tracking her development since. It’s been a difficult, emotional journey.  My daughter was in a brace 24hrs a day...

January 2016 at a Glance

Instead of writing my week at a glance posts this year I am going to write monthly round up posts instead. My January 2016 at a Glance was busy, fast & windy! It was full of storms & crazy amounts of rain. The wild weather brought some amazing rainbows & beautifully colored skies!     We managed to get outside for adventures when the weather allowed. I love the cold, crisp weather when you get bundled up with your hat & coat.       The month started with taking down Christmas decorations. I detest that job – first...

My Week at a Glance 13

I can’t believe it’s my week at a glance 13!! I started writing these posts my first week of blogging. The time has absolutely flown by! It’s really nice to go back through the posts and read what we’ve done each week! We ended up having a very busy week. Lots of unexpected appointments & going ons cropped up.  Blogging has taken a back seat, & besides my linkies, I’ve only posted about My Baby’s Hip Dysplasia. The highlight of our busy week was spending quality time with my son.  We had some time to kill before an appointment so we went for...
