Well here I am.


I've missed blogging, but life has been very full for the last few months, so I haven't had any time to justify blogging.

Today a belt broke on the lawn mower, or I would be spending the next 3 hours cutting the grass instead of doing this (dangit! ;))

We are all adjusting nicely to the newest transition in our lives.

The kids are still "rockstars" at their new schools and thankfully their grades have not slipped in any way.

Steven doesn't mind the 45 minute commute too much, because he has the serenity of the country to welcome him home.

I'm falling more and more in love with our new digs every day!

Leah is doing very well.

She is getting very big though.

So far, so good with her new therapists although, I have some reservations about her teacher.

Her speech therapist is very warm and kind and Leah seems to have taken to her quickly.

Her occupational therapist is amazing.

And, we are seeing her physical therapist for the first time on Thursday.

They only have one PT for the entire county!

We were spoiled with our previous therapists.

I miss them all very much.

And, with all of the craziness of the move, we never got to say good bye.


Lately, we've been working on following more broader directions, like: "Leah throw this in the garbage please."

She is starting to understand more concepts but she needs consistency, that's for sure.

Leah is also beginning to use her vocabulary more without needing prompting.

Words like no, all done, thank you, hi, and bye bye come now without anyone telling her to say them.

We are working on more, please, and I love you as well as trying to get her to ask for things instead of just telling us when she doesn't like/want something.

I keep falling more and more in love with this kid.

She's my buddy.

She has an incredible personality.

She's as stubborn as could be.

She's very prissy.

She's incredibly loving.

She is shy.

She is outgoing.

She is silly.

She is super serious.

She is inquisitive.

She is smart.

She is beautiful.

She is amazing.

She seems to know me just as well as anyone else does.

She seems to know more then I could imagine.

She seems far more knowledgeable then her years.

My life wouldn't be complete without her.

Now to decide if there's one more waiting to make it completely complete...
