Therapy went well on Monday for Alexis. Although, I have to say that it seems like it always rains when we go. The wind pushes the van all over the interstate and it freaks me out. I found the perfect solution to keep my mind off of the not so great conditions though… I just turn up our newest Glee CD really loud and we all sing along. It’s impossible to be unhappy while listening to fun music!
Brandon, Jordan, and I made a trip to the dentist on Tuesday. Jordan had her teeth cleaned and x-rays taken. I was pleasantly surprised that she sat still while they took the x-rays. The last time we went in she screamed bloody murder and they weren’t able to get any. She didn’t have any cavities, but there were some concerns about how her adult teeth are coming in since she lost her baby teeth. It definitely looks like she’s going to need braces. She has a grooved palate from being on a ventilator so long as a preemie and her mouth is very narrow. I’m going to start saving money now because Alexis’ dentist says she needs braces too. Yikes! At least they don’t have cavities. It could be worse. Right?
This morning Jordan woke up and told me she didn’t feel well at all. She ended up throwing up all over the rugs in the bathroom because she didn’t quite make it to the potty. She stayed home from school and took a two hour nap. We were supposed to go to her IEP meeting today at the school but obviously they didn’t want her to go if she was throwing up. So we had a quiet day here at home. I worked on creative team deadlines. I can’t share what I’ve created just yet though!
I can share the latest layout I’ve done for the Jessica Sprague Digi In Deeper class. It’s absolutely gorgeous. I had to change some of the embellishment placement to make the design work with the photos I wanted to use but it still looks kinda like Jessica’s!
Journaling: Our first trip to Disney World with the girls in 2005. Alexis was beyond excited and enjoyed every single minute. Jordan was obsessed with taking her socks and shoes off and throwing them out of the stroller. We had an absolutely magical time together.
*Since it’s Wednesday I have a journaling/blogging question for you all! Feel free to answer on your blogs and link back in the comment section or just leave a comment here with your answer.
What was your favorite book as a child? Why? If you have children have you read it to them? Do they like it too?
My favorite book as a child was “Green Eggs and Ham”. I’ll actually admit that I love every single book that Dr. Seuss has ever written. I really enjoy reading them to my children. I do silly voices and since I have most of the books memorized I don’t get nearly as tongue tied as I used to when I was little. The kids eat it up too. I hope that one day they end up reading the same books to their children. That would be totally awesome!
