And the Dr. Says ...
















Taya's hips are officially, officially NORMAL!! Yay!!! She's free!!!! (And diaper changes, nursing, and holding our little babe are officially easier! No more harness!! Taya wore this harness for the first three months - okay well, we may have cheated a little bit near the end.)
A lot of you know that after Taya was born, the doctors thought she might have a problem with her hip called Hip Dysplasia. Well after several check-ups with the Orthopedic Surgeon and several ultrasounds/X-rays done on her hips, the Dr. officially proclaimed Taya's hips as NORMAL yesterday at her last check-up! Things had been looking pretty good from her ultrasounds/x-rays recently, but it was just nice to hear the Dr. say that she is officially in the clear. Hip Dysplasia is basically when the ball of the hip does not stay in place - in socket because the socket itself is too shallow (if that makes any sense).
Now Taya has better things to do like pull on her toes and roll over!!
And we are certainly grateful for that!

Yeah Taya!!!! It's nice when the doctors say they're normal. She sure is growing up fast.

She is so cute... I'm glad she lived through my girls' harrassment last night. They woke up asking about her this morning.

Yay!

Hip, Hip, Hooray!

Breanne said...

Haha, you're right! Hip, hip horray! You did mean that pun right Sara?

Alright Taya! Good job girly. Maybe her hips stayed just a little loose so she can do really high toe touches and crazy flexible dance moves.

Breanne said...

Yes, I think so Melanie. Or at least, we secretly hope so, don't we?
(By the way, did you notice the Christmas Nutcracker Ballerina background - with the Nutcracker music and everything? I went a little crazy on it, not to mention potentially cheesy)

Hey Breanne...I found your blog through Melanie's. I'll e-mail you back soon, but it's been so fun to see pictures of you and your family. I hope you're doing well.

Ok Breanne, you are slacking! Changing the background does not count as posting:) I need something to read when I am procrastinating my school work!:)
