The Beginning of a New School Year

Well things are certainly just flying by me and I'm too busy to even notice. I am grateful for that though. Tru had a wonderful time at the conference and I enjoyed myself more then expected. It's wonderful to have a group of people that understand everything that is going on. It's great. I am so very proud of Tru. She has been well behaved the entire summer, specially since Tre' was all up in her face, and continues to be. . . to the point that he's been getting timeouts for being too over zealous in play with her. I believe she is truly learning to love him though, I caught them playing and tried to snap a picture and Tru caught me and shoved Tre' out of her way. So I try to play off like I'm not paying any attention to them with the camera by my side, but they usually end up taking it from me and fill my memory with odd angles, which is cute and my excuse as to why I don't take pictures like I promised myself that I would. I did get some of Tru's first day though. She was such a big girl. She got on the bus by herself and sat in her seat like a pro. The teachers say that she does well in class, there is still some frustration with verbal communication, but I am hopeful that she'll get across to them some how. This week we are doing all the annual exam visits that are required by the head start, yesterday was the eye doctor and she did amazing, I wasn't thrilled with the service but hopeful the outcome benefits Tru better when the new glasses come in. Tomorrow is the dentist, and then Thursday we are popping in meeting with the new Ped. Dr. that has joined the office since our normal doctor is booked and it's really more of a practical paper signature that I need, it's not 'important' per say, but then again it is cause the head start requires it. I'm glad she is adjusting to going back to school, and going to bed early =) She has even gotten in the habit of peeing on the potty before going to bed. Still working on the timing through out the rest of the day and trying to migrate the potty from the bathtub to the bathroom floor, but no luck there so for now it stays in the tub, blessed be the garden size tubs, lol.

The Conference is only 4 DAY AWAY

I can't believe that it will starting this weekend. I'm looking forward to some girl time with Tru. (get away from that trouble making brother of hers) I fear that being home all summer is taking its toll on her. I guess next year she's gonna have to do a daycare of some sort to get keep her in a good mood. It's not her ears bothers her, other then her natural aversion to loud sounds, I'm pretty sure it's just missing being around other kids her own age and away from home, my little birdie just wants out of the nest, lol. I wonder if it could be her glasses, she's broken them again cause she kept taking them off, which she never did there for the longest time, good thing the eye doctor appointment is coming up. She was suppose to go this week, but it got rescheduled.

I can't wait till this weekend. She usually does pretty good in the car. So long as we have our tunes and someone can hand her what she needs. I can't wait to see her with all the other kids and in the pool where her feet can't touch. I haven't taken her to the public pool this year because we got a Walmart special for here. She's floating in that one, but she knows that she can touch the bottom and her head still be above water. The swimsuit has the built in life vest, but I don't know how well it's going to work. I'll find out soon enough I guess. I promise to get lots of pictures.

Summer Sun

Things have been good. Tru does seem to be missing school. She's a very happy little girl right now since Daddy is home from work for awhile. We bought her nice size pool this year since she has to share with her brother and I. She didn't forget how to float from last summer. She's out of the float riders and into a suit with a built in life jacket. It's the new summer attire for her when she's outside because of the pond. She's also figured out how to get out of the fence. She's is so very clever.

Tru has been talking more. No sentences, but she just blurts out words sometimes. The most recent new word I've heard her say is awesome, which is AWESOME (guess it's easy enough to figure out where she picked that up from) I had asked her if she wanted more cookies, lol. . . Food is a good bribery tool with her. We've switched to the 100 calories cookie snacks.

She has been holding her ears and having more notable crying fits. Good thing she is going in for a check up on July 6th. I'm thinking the tubes may have fallen out and she's getting a build up again.

~Back on track~

Well, Tru has had her EEG and Tubes put into her ears. The EEG came back normal, so that's a big weight off my shoulders. The tubes have helped her so much already, her balance is imporved so much & some of her behaviors have subsided. She isn't screaming as much, mostly because I think she can hear herself. She's stopped banging her head all the time. She still does it when she's really tired and fighting sleep. I'm hoping in the next couple of weeks that her speech will start picking up. She was out of school for two weeks when the tubes were put in and then there was the winter break, so I'm happy to report that she was ready and willing to go back to school today. She was so well behaved at the bus stop this morning. She listened when I told her to wait until the bus stopped to load up & walked up the three steps, holding onto the railing, with very little help. It's amazing the differences I see in her already. She is kissing her brother every day now, upon request. She will even crawl up in bed with us and watch tv. She still has a bunch more doctor appointment to verfiy exactly how well she is hearing. They could tell that she was hear the octatives that didn't register before, but we have to go to the Easter Seals Clinic for more in depth observation. I'll try to keep this up dated a little better then I did last month, my computer had a virus and it took me forever to fix it.
