Reese is 2 years old! Baby number 2?

Okay so it's been a good while since I've updated. Life has been a bit hectic as I'm sure anyone can understand. Our summer flew by! In September we got to experience Disney World with Reese. It was a great trip, exhausting with a toddler but still great! Fall was filled with local festivities which are fun now that she is big enough for a lot more now. Reese turned 2 years old in November, I can't even believe it! She really is starting to look like a little girl now, where did my baby go!? 

As far as her global developmental delay goes, she is still about 8 - 10 months behind. She has pretty much every therapy under the sun at this point. She is starting to talk which is great! Her behavior and sensory issues have unfortunately gotten worse but I am hoping it's just her age and frustration from lack of communication. We are having her evaluated next week by a behavioral psychologist just in case as per OT suggestion. I am just now coming to terms with the whole thing. The developmental Pediatrician did not feel that she met the criteria for an Autism diagnosis this fall but we will see her again in March. She did say however, that she may be mildly autistic, time will tell. I read this the other day and it really is so true:

C and I are blessed with a beautiful little girl. Reese is taking us on an adventurous ride, good thing we love roller coasters!

Also, we moved out of our house in the suburbs and purchased a new build in Philadelphia! Our house will not be finished until August 2016, so we are crunched into an apartment for now. We are super excited for the move into the city. We love the area and will be super close to work. 

That being said our life is split between storage and the apartment. Reese's therapists changed. Just a whole lot of adjustment. And on top of all the craziness I still have baby fever! We are going to start trying for baby number two in the summer! I think this time around we are going to try at home with my eggs and donor sperm. We wanted to give something else a try, but would also love to do it the same way as before (reciprocal IVF). So who knows but for now I will start tracking at home and go from there.


  1. Wow! Such a big girl now! She is gorgeous and so are her mums :). Glad to hear things are going ok and more exciting plans are afoot!

  2. She is so big and such a cutie pie!! Sounds like you have a lot going on right now but that you're handling it well :) I hope your path to baby #2 is smooth!

  3. Happy birthday, Reese and Mommies!!! The picture of her in the Minnie outfit, dead from the cuteness! Those cheeks! I hope you make it to #2 quick and easy. Baby dust coming your way. Try to keep your head up about the evaluations. You are, as they say, in the muck right now. It gets easier the older they get and the better they learn to communicate and accommodate to surroundings. Best of luck to you and Reese, you've got this!
