Kenny has adopted a baby. He was carrying around his older sisters American Girl doll (or rather, Generation Doll) and while at a school function, a very sweet schoolmate of my girls offered her American Girl twins (a boy and a girl). She gave them to him last week and he hasn't parted with this little guy since. I even added a G-tube to him and made a backpack to "hold his feeding tube stuff...like Kenny has. He takes him everywhere...doctor appointments, to school, the store, to bed...he holds him, feeds him, gets a diaper changed when he gets his changed...and when he gets his feeds, meds and breathing treatments, the baby also gets them. I never thought my little guy would be able to relate to a doll or even know what to do with one. The way he looks at this doll is total love. He loves being a "daddy" to a little baby boy with the same issues as him! He has hit that next level of developmental play and I love it. I am going to be getting/making hearing aids for him next! I am in awe of how far Kenny has come from that one and a half pound, half baked little guy that beat the odds!
I am a SAHM who has been married to Tony (my soul mate) for over 15 years.
I am a twin and so is my husband. We are both artists, have 6 siblings (just the exact opposite)and now we have 7 beautiful living children and 8 angels (7 from miscarriages and Nick, Kenny's twin, who passed away 2 days after birth from complications to extreme prematurity. All of my children were born @ 34 weeks, except for the twins, they were 23 weekers and my last daughter, who was born at 36 weeks!
My family is my life! I have 6 amazing sisters and 1 brother (who is now taking care of my son Nick and my miscarried babies in heaven for me). Now I know why John died 24 years ago...it was to prepare my family and I for Nick's passing...and to be there for Nick.
I love gardening...every year I go nuts and plant a huge garden. I love jewelry and headpiece designing. My dream is to one day own my own bridal headpiece and custom jewelry boutique!
I love all crafts, painting, drawing, digital scrap booking, photography and...well...I just love to be creative.
