Grace was the cutest bumblebee for Halloween! She had fun at our church's celebration. We were all sick for Thanksgiving. Grace had (probable) salmonella and a cold. I had an upper respiratory infection, and Chad never went to the doctor, but he did not feel good either. :( But we still had a lot to be thankful for!
I just wanted to post an update on Grace after going to TLLH for a month. First of all, the school and its staff are AMAZING! We love them so much and are so thankful Grace got in early! She has adjusted well. Her second day there was pretty hard, but other than that she has done very well. We sent one of her favorite toys with her for a while, and we are still sending her paci and her blankie just in case. She is eating well at school, but still will not drink anything. Stubborn girl!
Immediately, we noticed a difference in her speech. She will chit chat the whole way home everyday. She tells me about her teachers and her new friends and what they do everyday! She has started saying "w," "n," and "l" sounds. She has been standing in a standing frame at school, and I can tell she has gotten stronger! She tried to pull up yesterday at school (video below), and she did great for me yesterday when I was working with her on this skill. For the past two days, she has reached for me when I picked her up. Melts my mama heart! She is also doing good for OT...she is almost putting rings back on her ring stacker by herself! Grace is also crawling all over our house! She is crawling fast and is very curious about everything!
We are surely blessed.
