Scott and Bridget met in 1993 and were married in 2001. In September of 2003 we welcomed our first miracle, James. 16 months later we brought home our second miracle, Annie. And in October of 2006 our family was complete with miracle #3, Gracie. Rett syndrome entered our lives when Annie was diagnosed on May 19, 2006. This is the life of the MacDonald family as we juggle 3 small children and battle Rett Syndrome until Gods perfect time when we are cured.

Well it was quite a weekend for us. On Friday Annie had a dentist appointment. She didn't enjoy it very much but James and Grace sure did. Our pediatric dentist is great, the kids always get to play games while they are there and they leave with a bag of goodies!
Annie grinds her teeth like crazy so to combat this we give her a pacifier, it seems to help and also seems to be very soothing for her. Unfortunatly she is 4 years old and at this point it should be a thing of the past. Our concern was if we took it away would her grinding wear down her teeth too much. Our dentist informed us that Annie now has a slight crossbite so if we don't want to damage her jaw we need to toss the pacifier. I'm not ready for the sleepless nights yet so we may wait for a few more weeks.
Saturday Annie had music therapy at the Far Conservatory. She's been taking music therapy for about 6 weeks now and seems to enjoy it. I think her favorite part is when her teacher plays the guitar for her and sings. We'll be sure to take the camera next week. James has gymnastics on Saturdays as well. He's been going for a few weeks and absolutly loves it. Here's some pics of him in action!

Little Gracie has to go along for the ride until next year when we'll be putting her in dance class (or acting lessons!). Saturday night we had a blast celebrating Valentines Day with our family. Thanks Jeremy and Jen for yet another great party!

And here's a quick pic of Annie using her walker right before she went to school for her Valentines Day party! My pretty little Valentine!
