Hey ladies! Let me know if anything needs changing! -Liz
Andi- Happy Anniversary!
That is GREAT news about Elia! What a relief! I love reading your blog updates and seeing their
Thanks Christine!Thanks Mari! It has been such a relief for us getting this news. :)
Hi everyone! I feel like I've been M.I.A lately - I've read all the posts and love hearing how everyone is doing, but I just haven't had time to respond. It's probably going to be that way for a little while... my job has shifted a bit as I move toward a possible promotion and I'm doing more and more work from home (which is great, but does cut into my "for fun" computer time) ;)
Things here are going GREAT though. I've been so worried about Elia and how behind she is in gross motor - the last few weeks she has really made a lot of progress. At her physical/occupational therapy appt last week I finally got the therapists to sit down and have a conversation with me about what we're looking at (my biggest fear, CP). They said we are not looking at a CP diagnosis, and that they are not referring her to Neurology. With the progress she's made so far and the developmental curve she's been on, they feel like any challenges she will face (if any) will be very minor/won't affect functioning, etc. I think it's been so hard for me because no one would ever talk about what was going on - it was such a "we just have to wait and see" game. Needless to say, I feel like a thousand pound weight has been lifted from me. :)
SO's Name: DH
Anna - Aww, thanks! I wish we didn't live "across the pond" so Selin and Teddy could meet their birthday buddy! ;-)
Morgan - Have a safe trip to TX!
Ruby - Good to see you here! I was just thinking of you earlier today and wondering how you're doing. I hope the new job is continuing to go well. Great to see you in the TTC chat too!
Cheryl - GL at your NT scan tomorrow! Still can't believe you're going to have 3 under 3 soon! Do you have family close by to help?
Katie - Can't get over how fast Z is growing! Slow down little man! Any more movement on your CS case? Hope you'll be getting some much needed sleep soon.
AFM - Need another prayer request from you ladies. We just found out today that our friends' baby was born on March 28th, about 2 weeks early, with some serious stomach/intestinal issues and had to undergo surgery the day he was born and has more surgeries ahead of him. We're so sad/scared for this couple, the pgcy was going along perfectly and even the delivery was fine and then their world was turned upside down shortly thereafter. Would greatly appreciate any P&PT you can send their way for their son. He will be in the NICU for a few weeks.
In happier news, I'm on spring break now, woohoo! It's so nice to be able to stay up late and not wake up before the crack of dawn each morning. I have an interview at another school on Tues. so crossing my fingers I get an offer before I have to sign a contact at my current school. Have a busy week planned while I'm off - hair cut, lunch with a couple of friends, finishing up my research paper, etc. Selin will be going to our sitter for two days this week so I know it will be a productive two days for me.
She has also been singing a lot lately and can sing the ABCs clear as a bell now! She also loves to sing Twinkle Twinkle (which she refers to as
I have been busy so haven't remembered everyones.
