We're There!

First off, I can't seem to find Edward any good physical therapy. Yesterday we had an appointment at Shriner's and it was a waste of time. I don't think she was comfortable working with babies. So she referred me to a couple places. The Guild School doesn't offer services for my address, freaking stupid, and at Youthful Horizon's there is a wait list. And I said he has arthrogryposis and she said she had never heard of it. OOOO how I miss Seattle, seriously, sooooo bad.
I can't believe it has only been two weeks. It feels like six years ago that we moved. Let me tell you, I don't ever want to move again! We did it all in ONE day, packed and cleaned the apartment, drove over, unpacked and slept in our new home. I am so grateful for all the help we received! Thank you! We love our new home. So much space and it is fun to pretend to be home-owners!
It has been hard to deal with the move, I miss home. It has been super hard on Harvey and I, but Edward has been a champ! He is the greatest! The past couple days have been hard on me. Our cars were broken into (a nice 'welcome home') and our cell phone bill was outa this world large. We also had our first Shriners appointment and we waited THREE hours to be seen. UNREAL. I was sooo annoyed. PLUS, Edward was put into plaster casts which are much more uncomfortable for him and the edges are sharp and go way up to his hips. Redic. Bla. Our orthopedic doctor is nice and seems helpful. It is interesting the different views doctors can have. Our ortho doc in Seattle is more aggressive with treatment then our ortho doc here at Shriners. I think/know I lean with the more aggressive treatment.
A friend of mine just had a baby the other day and she texted me that he was 'absolutely perfect.' That hit me hard and it took me a couple of days to come to terms with my issues. I am super happy for her. Seriously. Edward is perfect, too. I love him so much it is sick. And he loves me too! I feel it from him. He will be crying and I will just talk to him and he calms right down. I will lay him on my arm and he will just stare and coo and smile. I will come in the room and he will look for me and immediately smile. I feel his love. It is a different love. MFEO for reals. Even when random people stare at him and ask me 'what is wrong with your baby' I am ok because he is perfect to me. I have it better then anybody else.

  1. Your picture is so cute! Wish I could see more. Those little casts are so tiny...
    Harvey is looking so grown up! He looks like a little boy - no more toddler left in him. So happy your move went well - I'd love to see your new place. Good luck with the adjustment and keep hanging in there! Sounds like little Edward is as sweet as can be!

  2. What a great picture! It's hard to hear those comments when people don't think before they engage their mouth. Praying that you have a *wonderful* day!
