Taking it in stride...

I took Sadie to the doctor today. If you have ever seen Sadie run, or in the summer with no clothes on her legs, you might notice that her legs are bow legged. When Sadie was in my belly, she curled up, and even after she was born, being so tiny, she curled up in the stomache part of her sleepers, almost cross legged. Her legs have not straightened even though she has been standing since she has been 9 months old. Today, I spoke to her doctor for the second time and she is putting in a referral for Sadie to see a specialist at the Children's Hospital. I am not sure when the appoinment will be, but I am hoping soon. Although her range of motion is great, Sadie runs wiggling her hips, rather than bending her knees, so I am hoping we can help her overcome this. It was a great visit though, Dr. Lage and the office staff enjoy her "happy" personality and keep asking when Lucas and I are going to have more. That's another topic for another day!


  1. I hope everything goes well with Sadie's appointment.

  2. Thanks Terri. I am thinking that Sadie will just need some braces to straighen her bones, but we'll see what the specialist says. I have worked with children needing these, so I've got some experience in this.
