She turned 8 on August 1st. She's tall and thin and amazingly smart. She now has a palate expander and lip bumper to help widen her jaw.

Here she was at about 2 months (September 2002):

Of course, this post wouldn't be complete without Colin. At 6 1/2, he's a spitfire and just exudes joy. He's been diagnosed with ADHD, but we're working on it and he's doing great in school.

God doesn't give special kids to special parents. He takes ordinary, imperfect people, and gifts them with his greatest treasures. And therein, he creates special parents.

    Happy Birthday Emma!!

    sidenote - my DS (almost 4) had a palatal expander too, and now he's on an appliance to put traction on his jaw so that his upper teeth come over his lower teeth....he's having his underbite corrected.
    Long, blonde, 3a/mostly b hair.
