So I know it has been quite some time since my last blog post. Please accept my apologies. I guess life sometimes gets in the way. I thought I would share this photo of Yates. This one picture perfectly captures the essence of the Yatesy man……happy, funny, animated. Sent from my BlackBerry® smartphone

7 months old……1st trip to the ER with an injury May 13, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Stephanie Gillespie @ 6:32 pm

So Yates has somehow injured his leg. We still don’t know what the exact problem is, so I will back up and start from the beginning……..

Wednesday…..after Tiffiney noticed he refused to bend his right knee and cried when someone tried to bend it, we went to the ER. After spending 3 1/2 hours there, we left with a diagnosis of toxic synovitis. That’s basically when a virus causes the tissue around a joint to become inflamed. It’s a lot like temporary arthritis and is temporary. So today (Friday) his leg is still no better. We went to see his pediatrician, and she is going to repeat the x ray Monday just to make sure there are no hairline fractures. If we are dealing with injuries at 7 months old, I shutter to think what 7 years old will be like.

Oh did I mention, he flung himself off the couch a week and a half ago? Ugh! Sent from my BlackBerry® smartphone


Guess who’s 7 months old today! May 10, 2011

An unintentional southern belle May 3, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Stephanie Gillespie @ 4:11 pm

We are sitting here in the Children’s Clinic waiting to get Charlie Rogan’s iron checked, and I’m listening as she “reads” to me. ‘The pig say-yas oh-wink, oh-wink’. ‘Look at the kidda-kayat’ (kitty cat). She pronounces her words like a true southern belle with a real southern drawl. Where did she get this from? Is this how I talk? It’s cute for her, but do I sound that country?

She’s become her own little person with her own ideas, and I absolutely love listening to her explain things to me. She is my miracle……and has touched my heart in a way that has forever changed my life. I am a better person because of Charlie Rogan Gillespie, and as we get closer to this year’s March for Babies, I am reminded of how fortunate and blessed my family has been. So to sum up this rambling post….. I am forever indebted to the March of Dimes for helping me to have this sweet southern belle in my life and giving me the opportunity to have the family I never dreamed was possible.
