Saturday passed in a blur.
I am still trying to figure out how we packed in so much in just one day!
It all started with football pictures at 7:15 a.m.

Followed by game three of the season at 8:00 a.m. - game three, win three!

Next came game four at 9:00 a.m. - game four, win four.
Addie and I missed game four and a pretty awesome interception by my baby boy due to Addie's dance class.
Immediately following dance, came Addie's six-month dental check-up - complete disaster!

She hit meltdown as soon as we walked to the back and never recovered until Julien took her to the waiting room so that Chris and I could talk to the dentist.
This was the other dentist (our dentist canceled so they fit us in with the other dentist in the practice) that we had never met before, so we had the opportunity to ask our standard questions all over again to some new unsuspecting soul.
You know the ones (how many children have you treated with Microcephaly, what is your experience, blah, blah, blah).
The good news is this dentist was very pleased with the health of Addie's teeth and the fact that we are blissfully blessed that there are not any malformations!
The dentist was more than happy to tell me about a child he saw (in school mind you) that has Microcephaly and once again we are reminded of how truly blessed we are.
Oh...but guess what???
We just have to wait and see how things progress!
We just have to sit back and wait until around age six before we will know what to expect - that is a completely different post, full of nausea inducing details!
After the dental torture session, it was time to run home, change, send Julien off to a friend's birthday party while Addie napped.
After nap, came Julien's Birthday Party with his friends....that did not end until almost 9:00 p.m. when the last child went home.
It was a wonderfully busy day!
Our chaos continued on into Sunday and is just getting started for the week.
We have a lot going on!

I'm sorry to see Addie scared at the dentist. It is moving to see Julien holding her hand. You have such a special son.
