The New Swing, Expressing Discomfort, and Getting Invited to the Prom

We weren’t very happy with the therapy swing so we bought a different kind. We actually got a basic baby and toddler swing this time and it is much better. Stephen and Joshua had to make an attachment for the swing stand/frame which took most of Saturday afternoon but it’ll be worth it if the … Continue reading The New Swing, Expressing Discomfort, and Getting Invited to the Prom

Neurology, Trader Joe’s, and Hearing Back from Lekotek

Stephen has numbness in his thumb and three fingers (his pinky is unaffected) on his right hand so his orthopedic doctor sent him to see a neurologist on Wednesday. Unfortunately, he got poked and prodded a ton, and was quite uncomfortable while his nerves and muscles were being checked. We don’t know much from that … Continue reading Neurology, Trader Joe’s, and Hearing Back from Lekotek

Story Builders & Taking Off Her Necklace

This afternoon, I took Samuel to the library for some building fun. He and probably ten other kids had a good time using legos, magnetic blocks, wooden boards, and straws with connectors. He and a few of the boys worked on a skyscraper. 🙂 He wants to go back next week. Elizabeth took off her … Continue reading Story Builders & Taking Off Her Necklace

Music and Speech Therapy Disappointments

My main goal was to involve her in things she would enjoy (if learning happened as well then that was just a bonus). … Continue reading Music and Speech Therapy Disappointments

The Dentist, Wisdom Teeth, and Walmart

Yesterday morning, I had a dental appointment. It was a catch-up appointment, for sure. With all the years of pregnancy and breastfeeding, I have not been able to have the work done on my teeth that I would have liked. Isabella is close to weaning (during the daytime, anyway) so I am looking at the … Continue reading The Dentist, Wisdom Teeth, and Walmart

Fernbank, Kroger, and Master Prestige

I took Samuel and Isabella to the museum of natural history yesterday afternoon. We had fun! We explored the trails outside and looked at huts that were reminiscent of childhood play. Inside, we went to the kids’ room and the science experiments exhibit. We also visited the cafe and the gift shop. When we got … Continue reading Fernbank, Kroger, and Master Prestige

Autism Evaluation

We got to the psychologist’s office about fifteen minutes early on Thursday afternoon. Elizabeth was happy because I’d told her she was going to get to play with toys. The waiting room was a challenge because she was not interested in sitting down or waiting for Dr. C but at least she didn’t get hysterical. … Continue reading Autism Evaluation
