My little Kiwi girl!

This week we have all our six month appointments...Can you believe it my girls are six months! Kinley had an appointment with her Orthopedic doctor. She was breeched when she was born, along with her sister. Well they were pulled out that way. By Texas state law babies born breeched must have a hip sono. Kinley and Madelyn both had one while still in the NICU. Madelyn's was great but Kinley's wasn't and the Dr at the hospital heard a clicking in her hip. Kinley was referred to Cooks Children's to have it looked at and to decide if she need to wear a brace. They didn't think she would need a brace but wanted to keep a eye on her mild hip dysplasia. We went back every month to check her progress with a dr visit or a sonogram. 

 I had just assumed I would take both of the girls with me like I have done most of the other times. Until I found out my friend was going to be in town and I thought I would get her to watch Madelyn and I could actually just take one baby. After I went to the trouble of asking my friend, Chris was off and had decided to go. I figured we would just take them both, but Celeste said that we could go and just focus on Kinley. How great is that!! It was so much fun being normal. I didn't get ask a thousand questions! I don't usually mind it at all but it was a nice break. 

Our appointments are always in the middle of a feeding. Kinley would not wait!
Chris showing K a little love...No he doesn't love her at all. 


Hutton girls do you recognize this outfit?!?!?!?!

The doctor checked her and she had an x-ray. Everything looks great and had fixed itself! She has completely normal hips and we have no more appointments with them!!! Not that we didn't like them...they are great! Just so nice to have something to take off the list! Tomorrow...pedi appointments! 
Little Kinley ready to sleep and see her sister! We missed her
