On a side note, when Witt turned 1 he still did not have any teeth which is not unheard of but made me a little worried. Doctors told us kids with genetic issues can have bone growth problems and may have problems growing teeth. Since we know so little about trisomy 1 no one knew exactly what that meant in regards to his teeth. Getting teeth is something I don't think most parents worry about. They just seem to appear. I use to say, God after everything that is already different about Witt please just give him some teeth. In December I noticed it looked like he was getting a molar and within a week he had all 4 molars coming in. As we all know Witt likes to do things his own way so why did I think his teeth would be any different. Everyone thought it was odd he didn't have any teeth coming in the front and told me again maybe he wont get any. One doctor showed me in a chest xray which shows a little of his jaw you could see teeth in there. I have been praying for teeth to sprout up and I have good news... Witt is now getting a new tooth on the top and the bottom! They are still not in the very front but I think they are working their way forward. The point of all this story is in the midst of all Witt's serious problems I never want to forget to praise God for the things that seem so small. So each little tooth I see in his cute mouth makes me so excited. I know Austan thinks I'm crazy because I make him stop whatever he is doing and come admire the newest member to Witt's mouth with me. Our total tooth count is 6!
Thank you, thank you for all the prayers, emails and comments. I wanted everyone to know even though my mom is the one who updates the blog most of the time that I do read each and every comment. My mom also shares everyones emails with me too. Austan and I feel so undeserving of everyones unbelievable support. I hope everyone has a blessed weekend!
