Chips, Cheese and Sometimes Marshmallows

Life with 2q23.1 microdeletion syndrome (chromosome 2)

Chips, Cheese & Sometimes Marshmallows? What? Let me explain, if anyone knows my daughter Asia this completely makes sense:) Not only do we have many medical issues but, food issues are one of our major daily obstacles. You'll see...

Asia's List of Symptoms (2q23.1)

Whether or not all of Asia's Symptoms are related to the 2q23.1 microdeletion is unknown at this time:

At this time her symptoms are: Seizures, Hypotonia (muscle weakness), Development delay, Motor Delay, Language impairment, Non-verbal, Ataxia, Behavioral problems, Sleep disturbances, Short attention span, Repetitive behavior, Aggression, Autistic-like Symptoms, Sensory Processing Disorder (hypo-sensitive), Tongue-tied, Sacral Dimple, Possible Macroglossia (large tongue), Sandal Gap on foot, Constipation, Blepharitis, Hearing loss & Microcephaly.

~This list may be edited with new information~
There are additional symptoms with this rare syndrome that Asia does not have.

Many people contact me to ask what type of testing Asia had to get her diagnoses. Asia had a simple blood test performed which is called a "Cytogenic Microarray". There is a post in the blog that goes over this a little more.

Agnes & Dora Review!

Yes! Another product review, why?? Because we love Agnes & Dora, Asia lives in their product and we want to support a company we can't live without. If you haven't noticed, Asia wears fun comfy leggings pretty much everyday. I was scrolling through the pics on my phone and I may have one that she isn't wearing these leggings because she had a skirt on-we stock up. 
They are seriously silky soft, super stretchy, comfy, durable and adorable. Because of their stretch they fit over her diaper...other pants don't always do this.  Also, when she is being changed these make it easier as well. They adjust with height and weight growth, she wears them out before she grows out of them. Asia is very awkward when she tries to climb or sit, she has so much more range of motion in these pants compared to jeans. I feel like she is comfortable all day long! A bonus to top it all off is that they are SO cute and reasonably priced. They are always receiving new items-and the patterns just keep getting cuter and cuter. A&D-Kids Leggings They have Maxi Skirts for children too, which are just as great!
I was in a store today and a little girl was looking for a Maxi that would fit her- Agnes & Dora. 

These products are also available for adults:) Adults have more options! Pencil skirts, Maxi skirts, Leggings, Tunics, Kimono's, and shorts! I live in them too:)
You can buy them online at or find a rep and host a party. There are often patterns at parties you don't see online. Reps are all over the US and in Canada too.
