DAY 305


Learned or Genetic?

I am the only one in our little family that is unable to roll my tongue. I always assumed it was a genetic trait carried on from Haldan. However, in my reasearch today I have learned that it is not a definitive conclusion; many contradicting opinions out there. So, what are your thoughts?

It turned out to be a beautiful day here today, but to be honest this photo was actually taken a few days ago. With all of the Halloween festivities I wasn't able to fit it in and it's too cute to go by the wayside.

I've been having one of those days today... just trying to keep one foot in front of the other. Sometimes we get so caught up in the daily grind that we lose sight of the truly important stuff.


  1. If you carry the gene and it is not a visible trait it is called variable penetrance.

  2. So I don't know...Makaya was able to do it as a baby, without really knowing what she was doing...then about a year ago, she tried to do it on her own, and couldn't...and has been "working" on it ever since...if she doesn't think about it, she can do it...but it's the thinking that gets in the way. I'm not sure about Kason..think it's too early to tell. But both Alan and I can do the tongue roll.
