Taking the Scenic Route

Busy working on Christmas gifts so I haven’t been posting much.  Quick update for now:

  • The semester is winding down.  Zach is on the last week of new material for some of his classes this week.  Next week is review, then finals.  It went fast this semester.
  • That also means that there aren’t very many preschool days left either.  Zane is going to miss it over the break.  (so are we)
  • Yesterday, when I was getting Zora’s jacket on her after Zane’s therapy, he asked to get his lollipop (they have them at the reception desk).  I was really happy that he asked verbally, but he wasn’t done yet.  When I said “wait just a bit while I get Zora’s jacket on”, he said ” ‘kay “  (as in “ok”).  I did a double take as I realized he actually replied.  Makes me happy! 
  • My cough is still there, but improving.
  • Zora can now crawl over the medium size totes that we use to block access to the hallway and bedrooms.  She crawls up on top, then wiggles her butt and her feet until she slides off the other side, hands outstretched, head first.  The girl has no fear.  She protested quite dramatically when we put the bigger totes in her way tonight.

    I thought my boys were rough and tumble but it turned out to be my learning-to-walk Rhi-rhi who displayed no fear in anything. Scares me to death, LOL.

    Way to go, Zane!! Verbal milestones are just the best.

    Zane is definitely doing much better at verbal communication.

    I can imagine Zora doing that. On Thanksgiving she was using the table legs and chairs as an obstacle course. She would crawl as fast as she could around the chairs in an obstacle course type pattern, then come out on the kitchen side, look at me as if to say, “How fast was that??…Here, time this one, I think I can do it faster!!!” and she tried, smiling and giggling all the way. I cracked up.

    Glad your cough is better. Those are annoying to get over. Your Dad still coughs several times a day.

    I did a bunch of stuff for your Grandma yesterday, including getting the mail. In the mail was the Newsweek dated Nov. 27. The headline and cover picture feature is called “Growing Up With Autism” and has a pix of a mom and her 20 yr old autistic son. I haven’t read it yet. Thought you might be interested. Grandma thought I might be too. She didn’t even open the magazine.

    Mom is doing quite well. She is accepting her housing situation so much better this time. Settling in and *nesting* this time. I got her all sorts of stuff from the apartment yesterday and “initial here and sign here” all sorts of govt papers for her. I’m still working on getting her a track phone, since they don’t have land lines in the rooms. She was walking very ‘easily’ with her walker when she came to lunch. It was good to see. She may pull out of this one and feel a lot better. I hope so!

    Dec. 10…Children’s program in church, 1:00 S Christmas at Julie, later, church caroling at nursing homes, etc. It’s a good thing Christmas is a season and not a day!

    Love you!!
