I know I literally say this every month, but where does the time go?! Not sleeping, that’s for sure! The girls are still waking up in the night. It’s not like it’s been a long time since I’ve had a good night’s sleep. Oh wait, it has been!
It’s been a busy month; the girls are officially out of their bucket seats and are in convertible seats now. It is now a huge pain getting all three kids into their car seats. I have to crawl into the back of the car with a baby and put them in their rear facing seats in the third row then do it again. It’s pretty crappy and kills my back.
Miss Raegan is climbing onto everything. She’s pulling to stand and has cruised from ottoman to chair to couch. She’s also taken a few steps with her push toy and is trying to stand up on her own. She’s also impossible to change. Impossible. If there’s no poop, I strip her naked including diaper in my arms and have to lie a fresh diaper down and sit her on top of it then wrestle her into her clothes. It’s a process, and if she’s pooped, well then that’s a whole other ball of wax. She is definitely saying Dada and says “I did it!” and “yah”. No Mama. It’s fine. You know, whatever. Doesn’t kill me. It’s totally cool.
She’s also growing the rest of her front bottom teeth and is chewing on everything.
Ella is doing well; she rolls from side to side and has rolled over on her own a couple times. She’s pretty desperate to move around and tries to pull up to sitting but just isn’t strong enough yet. She just started clapping yesterday where she’ll have her right hand in midline and will move her left in and out. It’s amazing and when you tell her good job, she giggles uncontrollably! She is currently getting at least 6 teeth, 4 of which are molars. She’s not even complaining about it, because that’s just what she’s like. She says what sounds like Ella, Woah, and hello. She’s a good mimic!
Ella just received her accessible permit which is very surreal – but but but she’s supposed to be learning to walk, not needing to park in a special spot!! In addition, she’s also received a weighted vest from her occupational therapist to help her sit up and work her core. She’s also started physical therapy and I’ve been looking at equipment to help around the house. It’s been slightly overwhelming but she has such a sunny disposition that it helps. We’re going to a consultation with Easter Seals this week to see about participating in a class for kids with CP.
March 28th marks one year home for the girls and we’re going to PARTY!!
