Saturday, December 03, 2011's been a few months since I posted:)

(I want to recover that BRATS cover..on the project list:))

So, It's been a few months since I posted..guess I should start up again:)

Lots going on. I work 40+ hours a week watching the cutest little boy whom Lucy and Peter absolutely adore and can't get enough of. They ask for him on weekends, sometimes search for him in the house:)

Lucy and Peter are both in therapy which is INCREDIBLE and free AND they come to our house once a week. Lucy is getting help with speech since she is delayed from her millions of ear infections. Peter got out of feeding therapy and into gross motor skill therapy. Because he was in the NICU so long and in the hospitals for evaluations and surgeries, he has been delayed in some core muscle training etc. So he is 18 months and still not walking. BUT the therapist has taught him(along with a big lesson and practice from Evan) to go up and down the stairs. He climbs onto couches, tables, you name it. He just doesn't want to stand on his own or walk yet.

Lucy is potty training-sort of. Every time we go to try it sickness happens and it is delayed. But she is slowly running out of diapers and I don't want to buy her more. She sings ALL of the time, says please and thank you, HUGS the best hugs, is a cute little mommy, and is just everything I could ask for and more. (oh and on a side note, she grew out of her apple allergy after 2 years!) YAY!

Peter is mr. exploratory boy right now. He wants to try and to know about EVERYTHING!!! He is one of the best cuddlers I know. He loves to love and is very sensitive as well. We are going for his year post op appointments this month..I think things are good. Peter loves to push trucks around and if he could escape outside he would. He misses daddy during the day, I think he is ready for summer break with daddy at home:) Peter is just the perfect little boy for me.

Evan is the best Husband a gal could have! He is so sweet, he puts up with me, loves me, sacrifices for me. He is loved by so many, and it is touching to hear from people how he has touched their lives. He makes me a better person, and I am glad he is my best friend.

I have been slowing down-In a good way. I am not participating in everything offered and don't feel bad about it either. Before I felt like I was slacking on most everything, and now I know that focusing on what's important and crucial to my family is most important. There is still so much that I need and want to do, but I like taking it slower.

Life is good. I love my family. I love Heavenly Father and all that he is helping me with and teaching me.

How long was Peter in the NICU?

I am glad you are learning to slow down. It is so hard to do, but it opens yourself to the little things. It took me a long time to figure that out!

Miss you!

He was in the NICU for about a month. Split between the St Joseph NICU and the Children's Hospital. Great nurses:)
