Kara was diagnosed with food protein induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) in August of 2010. She has had many FPIES reactions and complications that have lead to numerous hospitalizations and specialist appointments. It was a huge sigh of relief to finally have some answers and a diagnosis, however we have to remind ourselves daily that this is a very serious disease and this is only the beginning of the long road we have in front of us.

In all the negativity lately, I thought I needed to post something positive!

We were in our usual Monday morning hurry the other day and Brenna needed to bring a baby to daycare with her, so of course, Kara thought she should have one too. Normally, I object but since Kara has been following in Brenna's foot steps lately, I let my new little Mama have her baby too.

I watched them through the mirror in my car as I was driving. Brenna playing with her baby, Kara mimicking Brenna's moves with hers. It was absolutely adorable and melted my heart. My baby is getting big. I've tried to not "baby" her so much in the past week and expect a little bit out of her and she's taken that on full force!

I wish I would have pulled over to take a picture. Next time, I'll take that extra minute and do that. These are the moments to treasure forever! :)
