I have only done this one week and already am behind. I guess I am following in Em's footsteps. (smile, smile). I guess better late then never!
Ashlee really loves to watch home videos, especially the tape with her birth on it. I sat down and watched it with her the other day and thought about when each of the kids were born. Somewhere on the tape someone made a comment about all 10 fingers and all 10 toes and it reminded me of the fact that that is NOT a given. Imagine the feeling when the nurses are being so cute and counting all your newborns toes and you hear "5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11?" Eleven!!! Is that a joke? Well, with Tyler is was no joke. He had 6 toes on one foot. The 6th toe was actually a skin tab since it had no bone but it was just off the pinkie toe and it did have toenail so medically it was considered a 6th toe and a "birth defect" They tied it off and in about a week, it just shriveled up like a raisin and fell off....pretty much like the belly button. If I had to choose a birth defect, that would be the one but it caused my heart to stop for just a split second! The formation of a baby is such a miracle that it is a wonder that more things don't go wrong. It is just evidence of our Heavenly Father's love. Only He could create such perfect human beings....even with 11 toes!
