I was sifting through video and image files and randomly clicked on a date that had a few videos that I completely forgot about. On 8/17/07 (my birthday), I video taped Kendall for no particular reason. They are very short videos, but thought that it would be good for other new mothers to see her at this age, compared to who she is now. Kendall was born on 7/18/07, so this is almost exactly at one month. Boy, we had no idea what we were in for… Another 8 months of struggle before we got the diagnosis.



Figured I would add a more recent video of her too, for the before and after effect!

    Great idea to share these…I think it really helps perspective for new parents. Reminds me how Brodie always seemed that he was born a couple months too early even though he was full term. To watch him run around now at 2 1/2 as a wild and happy toddler you would never believe he was almost a year old before he would splash at water in the tub or spontaneously play with any toy etc….

    Isabella looked almost identical at that age! We also had an almost identical muslin too that we wrapped her in to make her look like a sausage :). Kendall looks beautiful, and she is an inspiration….x

    Yes, thanks for posting this Kevin! Ava still has so many newborn attributes even though she’s 5 months old. Sometimes it’s hard to imagine her as a little girl. Your post helps put things into perspective!

    Thanks for sharing these vids, Kevin. As others have said it truly is an inspiration to see how far Kendall has come thus far. Not that I need to tell you, but she has grown from a cute baby into a really beautiful little girl.

    Thanks Ross. Yes, she has come a long way, and continues to develop. It’s amazing how much our kids will do if we give them the opportunity.
