I am 13 weeks pregnant and just starting to feel better.
I have so much to catch up on. Lots of pictures to download.
Sophie remains off all seizure medications. Her seizures remain relatively stable with one cluster in the middle of the night, a big cluster when she wakes up in the morning, a smaller cluster after her nap, and sporadic seizures throughout the day. She steadily continues to develop...picking up words here and there. She loves the word "doh" (door). She says it all day long. Mostly because she wants me to open the door to either play outside or downstairs.
Sophie turned 3 in October and started preschool at our local elementary school. She is in an integrated classroom where she receives all her therapy. She goes 3 hours every morning Monday through Thursday.
We had a nice long vacation (17 days) visiting my sister and her family in San Diego.
Elsa is doing absolutely incredible. She is signing, talking, walking (trying to run), and climbing. She amazes me at the speed she learns things. She loves to follow Sophie around everywhere and tries to imitate the things she does. The cutest thing is when Sophie grabs Elsa's hands and makes her do sign language (usually the sign for "more"). They are starting to play really well together.
Haley is doing very well in school with one semester of 6th grade over with. She keeps busy with her extra-curricular activities...competitive dance and honor choir. Two things I always wished I could do but never could. I have proved that time and time again in playing Dance Dance Revolution and American Idol on the Wii...it is quite embarrassing.
We had a wonderful holiday season and feel blessed with being able to spend it with all our family coming into town from all over the place. Happy belated holiday to all of you!!!
