I have not been a very good blogger. I always think I have the best intentions to keep it up, and then life gets in the way. Hopefully, this time I *will* keep it up!
In the past year and a half a lot has happened!
Nikki is now 11, and in 6th grade! She is thriving in middle school, and seems to genuinely enjoy it! She had a really fun 11th birthday party. We traveled to Tulsa with 3 of her friends (Abbie, Kaity, and Breanna). We had dinner at The Cheesecake Factory, and then spent the night at the Crowne Plaza. The girls decorated t-shirts (I had appliqued their initials on them), swam, and did huge makeovers...and of course, pigged out on junk food! :)
Jason just turned 6. We are having his birthday party tonight! He chose a Phineas and Ferb theme, which is no shock! He loooves Phineas and Ferb!! Since I last wrote, so many things have happened with Jason. He has been diagnosed with Sensory Integration Disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Unfortunately, the developmental pediatrician we saw was one we don't really agree with or particularly like. She refused to give him an autism diagnosis because he was too friendly. The special services director, the occupational therapist, the speech therapist, the school psychologist, his teachers, and we all feel this was wrong. Jason is a super great kid, with a sense of humor, and a sweet smile. And he is very loving. But he does not make friends with children his own age. And ALL of his tests showed him on the spectrum. So, the OT is going to be retesting him.
During his IEP meeting, we found out that Jas does not have any muscle tone on his left side, causing him some issues, which all relates to the ASD. He is starting OT and ST this year, and the school really has a great plan in place to help him! :) We are very hopeful!!
Jason is super interested in computers and anything to do with electronics. He's so funny, and is just a lot of fun to be around!
Matthew is 3 now! My baby is growing up!! He had a monkey themed birthday party, and still says "My boothday was a monkey." Silly guy. He is very friendly, and generally a very happy kid. He loves to smile and laugh! He is also a cuddly kid. He always wants hugs and snuggles. :) He is a biter, though, which I would love to break. Actually, he only bites Jason. Those boys.....
Chuck and I are doing great!! Just staying busy as always. I am planning our vacation for next year, and am having a lot of fun creating new products for my store! :)
I'm not here anymore!
