All About Belli and Me-Part 3

Ok, here is my final Q&A post.  If you would like to read Part 1 and Part 2 just follow the links!

Tyler asked,
1.  What is Belli's favorite food besides milk with Carnation?  I know you say she doesn't eat much but when she does eat what does she like?
She loves yogurt!  She has at least one carton of Activia or YoPlus a day.  She also really likes grits and a bowl of Cheerios.

2.  What is your favorite homemade meal your mom or dad makes?
Mozzarella Chicken.  It's just chicken, spaghetti sauce, and mozzarella cheese but oh my gosh is it good!

Jody B asked,
3.  What has been the very best part of your journey of motherhood?
Getting to see her finally reach the physical milestones that she is so delayed on.  I will never forget the first times she rolled over, sat up on her own, started scooting, and more recently pulling into standing on her own (which she did for the first time about a week ago).

4.  What has been your worst moment of motherhood?
The worst moment so far was the week she was in the hospital in traction and she had to lay flat on her back the whole week.  I couldn't do anything for her and she was miserable.  It was awful not being able to help her or make her more comfortable.

Anonymous (This is actually a friend of mine who lives in TX that has a daughter Belli's age with Larsen's also) asked,
5.  When is Isabelle going to meet Addison!!!???  I have a feeling they are going to be friends for life!
For those of you who don't know I met Julie, Addison's mom, online a year or so ago through a Larsen's Syndrome message board.  Her daughter's birthday is August 16th (or 15th!??!  I can't remember now geez).  Anywho, so she is about two weeks younger than Isabelle and was born with very similar issues that Isabelle had.  I have a picture of her on this post.  Her mom and I have become very good friends because we share so much in common not only with our daughters but other issues we have been through in life.  I love her to death and we are really hoping our daughters will stay in touch as they get older.  So, to answer the original question...hopefully soon!  We have been talking about taking a beach trip over the summer together so the girls can meet and play.  As soon as my sister and I know my summer school schedule we will know for sure when but it looks like it is going to be around July 10th!  I hope it works out.  I think they are going to be friends for life too!


  1. Thank you for the answers! You daughter is beautiful and you are a true testament to those who might be dealt a "crappy hand" who chose to persevere. Have a wonderful day!

  2. How awesome that you have met Julie, I think support by people in familiar situations is sooooo beneficial! And, I'll bet that Belli and Addison will have a lifelong friendship! I see visions of camps and sleepovers and mischief!
