She Be But Little

“And Though She Be But Little, She is Fierce” And that sums up perfectly Gretchen Estelle. Today we had another IEP/CPSE meeting, this time for Gretchen, to talk about her progress in physical therapy. Keep in mind that at almost age 5 Gretchen is still fitting in size 3T¬†clothing. She’s longer than she is wide, … Continue reading

One of those Days

Monday Again Today it was back to school after mid-winter break. And, well, let’s just say we’ve all forgotten how to do Monday mornings. I overslept which meant Rob was running late. The girls stalled getting changed out of their PJs. Of all the days to sleep in, Theo picked today. I had to wake … Continue reading

Sunday Thought

So, we’ve been up since 5:30 a.m. … well, most of us. Already I’m exhausted. Theo is running all over the place…and the girls are mostly keeping out of trouble.

Well, guess what, we’re finding out that good things do come to those…who wait. Since Olena¬†was about 9 months old our … Continue reading

A Body in Motion

Can’t Sit Still One thing about Theodore and his ASD is he cannot sit still. He will occasionally stop and watch his favorite video, or sit and eat his dinner (if he’s really hungry), but most of the time he’s moving from room to room, from his chair to sit on the heat, trying to … Continue reading

Fighters: Since Day 1

Introducing the NICU After being in recovery for God-knows how long, it was time to meet the triplets. I can’t quite recall in what order we met them…but since Babies A and C had no names yet (B was our boy), we had to meet them and give them their names. All I know is … Continue reading
