I have been very worried about Maliyah since October. I haven't been sleeping at night, and she was up a lot as well. I took Maliyah to the doctor for her once a month doctor visit. They told me that she was only receiving 1/2 of her calories for the day. I had no idea!! It really made me mad, they know how bad Maliyah was doing and they let it slide because she was gaining a little weight. She is 7 and doesn't even weight 30 pounds, so how could that be good for her. So I got that taken care of. She is doing so much better!! She is getting around on her own and finally thriving, when I wasn't sure she was going to make it through some of the nights. What a weight off my shoulders. I am able to sleep and not worry so much about her. Life is really good right now. I have been staying really busy with the boys. They didn't have pre-school this week because the teacher's daughter was getting married. Courtney will start her dance competitions in 1 week, so she is working really hard at that. I can't wait for Courntey and I to head to St. George for a weekend in April. Just some alone time!! I know that we will be busy with dance most of the time, but I do hope there will be time to swim. It will be nice to have a break from the kids, Courtney needs a break too. Kendra is working very hard on her crutches. We are starting the filming of the TLC special at the end of March, it will air in June. But that can always change. Some friends of our just lost their conjoined twin daughters. So our hearts and prayers goes out to them. There are more conjoin twins that die, than are ever separated. Our girls are Miracles and we are better because of them.


  1. We are so glad that Maliyah is feeling better. I have been checking your updates to see how she is. We looked at your photos for the book and the kids look awesome, even Maliyah, though you could tell she wasnt feeling well. Keira has one of the pictures of the twins on her computer desktop now so she can see them every day. Our thoughts and prayers are with you always.

  2. It's a shame that so many people had to spam your other guestbook and you were forced to take it down. I'm so sorry to hear Maliyah's been so ill, but very glad to hear she's doing better. Erin, I know you love your kids and husband very much and do everything you can for them. But you still need to take care of YOU! :) Please tell Courtney good luck with her dancing and to dance her little heart out!! God Bless you all and keep strong.

  3. I am so sorry you had to take the guest book down. I don't understand people who spam. Glad to hear Maliyah is doing better. Try and get some rest. You are a great caring , loving mom. Best wishs to Courtney. You go girl!
