We've been enjoying the nice weather. Kendall's been swinging a lot outside. She also has enjoyed being pushed in the jogger. (not slow, but fast...or over bumps!)
Things are starting to get back to our normal routine around here. Kendall has a new Physical Therapist we see twice a week. So far, we're off to a good start. She's definitely not going to be one to let Kendall run the show...and for those of you who know my little angel, you know she tends to think she can do that. Monkey Mouths Speech therapy is going well. They have opened another location in Flower Mound, so unfortunately our current therapist will be leaving. We should be starting with our new one this Friday. Since my new found focus on Kendall's oral motor development, she is babbling more and more each day.
Yesterday I was shocked and very saddened to find out our amazing ECI Speech Therapist Kristi is moving. As soon as she told me I started to cry. Through our journey with Kendall, her therapists and team of people who work with her on a daily basis have become my family. I don't handle saying goodbye very well. Especially when it comes to people who love my kids. I guess this is something I need to get used to. I'm sure we will have nurses, teachers, and therapists come and go...her whole life. But still. I'm sad. Thank you Kristi for all you've done to help Kendall (and me) over the past year and a half. You will be GREATLY missed :(
Yesterday Kendall also had her Renal Ultrasound. I swear the sonographers must take a class in how to have a "poker face" because I couldn't read his face one bit. Next week we meet with the Urologist to discuss the results. Ugh. I hate waiting. I figure if it were good news, we'd probably just have an appointment with the Nurse Practitioner, or get a phone call...
Kendall had music therapy again today. Because she didn't sleep much last night, she was a little groggy. But Nikki our therapist is really good with her. I wish I had the patience she has to wait for Kendall to make a move or a choice. Hopefully, I can learn that by watching her. Kendall has such determination on her face when reaching for an instrument. She's also learning to master cause and effect. When she plays an instrument, the song goes on. When she stops, it stops. Kendall would rather just arch her back and start screaming to make it go again...but we're trying to change that :)
Kamden is doing great. Despite recent inappropriate language at school, he's having a great year. I'm so proud of him. He will receive his advanced purple belt in Karate this month, and he can now flawlessly play 6 chords on the guitar, and one scale. And I'm sure he's going to learn even more in the next two weeks, seeing as he is grounded from ALL video games for 2 weeks!!
