Kendall Says...

Well, I am pleased to announce my husband made it home from his business trip early, Kendall has been eating and taking medicine like a champ, and she is starting to babble. I mean really babble. Some of my girlfriends were over last night and they heard Kendall saying "hey da da" over and over! So, of course I called Justin to let him hear! She is also starting to say bbbb along with her usual agggooo. It seems like she is doing it with more purpose than before! I am so thrilled.

She has not been sleeping at night at all. Maybe it is the increase in Keppra?? Or maybe the cough I've developed over the past few days kept waking her up. I dont know, but she woke up every hour on the hour last night. When Justin's out of town, Kamden sleeps with me and he snores, so between the dogs and Kamden and Kendall, I didn't sleep much. Oh well! (it certainly isn't because I don't have a mattress that reduces tossing and turning caused by pressure points...providing the ultimate in spinal alignment, pressure relief, and proper back support...)But now that Daddy is home, maybe I will get some rest tonight. (yeah, right!)

But here is my angel without her glasses talking away! We have decided since she has to have an examination under anesthesia soon for her eyes, we are going to go ahead and have the muscle surgery to straighten out her right eye. The down side is it may not work completely...but heck, it certainly can't get much worse! Poor baby! They are scheduling the surgery in the next month.


Finally, in addition to my sweet baby's new vocabulary, she is also working on some sign language. In the picture below, she is signing what she'd like to say to those seizures, therapists who make her work, dogs who bark too loud and startle her, etc...

I know, I know...I'm bad. Please don't report questionable content!
