Sorry for the delay. It was a hectic last week. Not so much with Alyssa but with overall life. Neil and I have switched to a raw vegan diet for the time being (you can read more about that at http://jraw.wordpress.com if you are so inclined). The first couple days were a write off from caffeine withdrawls! Ha! I feel great now though. More energy than ever! I digress… this is Alyssa’s blog 😉
Last Monday we went to her well check. She is doing great. Of course. We really want to get her into more physical therapy and perhaps orthopedics for splinting of her legs. Overall she is making progress daily. I cannot believe how old she has turned in a matter of weeks. I swear I feel like every time I glance at her she is just growing by leaps and bounds. She is learning to communicate her needs on such a higher level than before. I’m loving it. Well… most of it. She still adores her power wheel car and it has really helped her to work on self correcting when sitting. Who knew?
We are going to do a bit of a toy purge this week or at least a bit of a toy hide. Her room has so many in it that it is overwhelming to go play. A lot of them are actually property of her service coordinator. Ah well, I suppose they are all learning tools… but they do need to be put in a rotation or something before I yank my hair out by the roots.
Well, nothing else truly noteable. Perhaps a picture before I go? LOL!
A freshly bathed Alyssa. Didn’t even have her glasses on yet. She is so content on that car. The sweater she is wearing was knit by a friend of mine for another friend of mine. Ah, the glory of hand made hand me downs 🙂 I love it!
