We’re still here!

Well it’s been a long time…glad I can still log in to post!

B is in 3rd grade (special ed) and is doing super well. She is reading, writing and doing math. ¬†Singing and dancing are what she loves best. ¬†And going to the annual Blythedale concert fundraiser¬†so she can meet her favorite Rob Thomas for our¬†annual photo! ¬†Here’s a compilation of photos throughout the years. We’re on our 7th year, woo! ūüėÄ ¬†This is now¬†one of our Christmas traditions ūüôā

And we made it on to News 12!

Happy Holidays!

CdLS Awareness Day Today!

Learn a little more about CdLS today at www.cdlsusa.org

Thanks to Ingrid and the foundation for organizing today’s regional meet up. ¬†We are very lucky to only have to travel 20 minutes while others take a few hours each way for a chance to connect with other families in person.

And the foundation also has a great new logo!

new logo!

Imperfect Teeth

oh yeah, almost forgot about the major dental work B had. ¬†Cavities were out of control. ¬†Despite all the holes, B didn’t really show signs that she was hurting. ¬†However it was time to get her teeth under control so she went under anesthesia and had her top 4 front teeth pulled, a couple in the back we think, root canal, and lots of silver crowns. ¬†We have been brushing her teeth more diligently now even though it is quite the battle each time. ¬†Singing our toothbrush song and counting to 20 helps, along with her random helpers in the morning like cookie monster, toilet paper roll, gopher, fred & ginger, etc…

 

Let's go dentists, doctors and nurses!

Progress Report

Well B’s making great progress in school. ¬†She can write her own name (first + last), and now learning her 10s in counting. ¬†She counts to twenty but regularly skips the number 13 for reasons superstitious we suppose. ¬†Reading is going nicely, she can read a whole bunch of words now and is able to copy words into her ipad and search the web. ¬†Although that has its hazards!

Behavior wise can use some help.  She can get defiant (wonder where she gets that from?), and refuse to do her work.  She will also deliberately spill or throw things at times, and hit other children.  Working on it!!!  Definitely unpredictable this girl.  Learning how to wait out and go through her spells.

All in all, she is cooking along!

Swimming and lost swim vests

So I’ve been lazy/busy and haven’t brought B to the pool lately so when we decided to go the other day, we couldn’t find her vest. ¬†Did we leave it at the pool? ¬†It’s been over a month so fat chance. ¬†Not in the locker room, but lo and behold, it was on one of the lifeguard training dummies! ¬†???!!! ¬†Unbelievable… someone loves B!

Counting and writing

B continues to improve counting and writing.   She can say her numbers I think all the way to 30 now, but actually count for herself up to about 5.  On holiday this week, but summer school starts on the 1st of July.  Yes!  : )

Sleeping in her own bed

B has started to sleep in her own bed and room this week, wooooo!  I had a fear there that she would end up like her tita ; )
She has made it through the night a few times. ¬†Other times she would wake up in the middle of the night and get back into bed with me. ¬†It’s nice not to be pushed off to the edge of the bed when the whole other side is empty and not be kicked!
