Last week Sierra had her IEP and everything went great! They are pleased with how much she has progressed and they tell me now that it mostly her speech that is holding her back now. They switched Sierra to a speech therapist that specializes in Speech Apraxia so we can focus mainly on her speech problems. They told me Sierra does not have an interest in coloring, drawing, cutting, or painting, which I knew already. The problem, I told them, is that those things are hard for her and anything that requires her to put an extra effort in she just chooses not to do. So they are evaluating her motor skills to see if she needs extra help there, which I am sure she will.
Hannah turned one year old and we had a little party for her. Every present that she was given has now been taken over by Sierra as well as all the ones she got for Christmas. I am working hard to get Sierra to share Hannah's toys with Hannah, and Hannah wants anything Sierra is playing with no matter whose toy it is.
Sierra has been sick a total of 5 times now since Christmas! 4 major (out for a week) colds and one bout with diarrhea. She goes to school for a week and then is out for a week. I think that is over now (hopefully) she actually has gone to school for a week and a half now.
I am battling a kidney stone and the stone is winning I think. It is a 2mm stone but it feels like I am giving birth to a 10 pound baby! I am on pain killers now as I am typing this so disregard anything out of the norm!
