It’s been quiet around here these days. Did we lose everyone during our vacation? If you are still here, say YO!
We’ve been busy little bees here at the Andrew house in Canyon Country.
Nathan is going to preschool! In the bus! He loves it! Every day the teacher tells me of new things he’s doing and how amazed she is by him. We are still trying to figure out what the best class will be for him, but check this out – his teacher has stopped by our house TWICE in the last few days to check in with me and let me know how Nathan is doing. She seems genuinely interested in his well-being so I am starting to put the mommy claws away and trusting that she has his best interest at heart. She told me today that they had him in a stander and he made choices with his hand, responding to a command to choose horse, cow, and other objects. He also did amazing at communicating with eye gaze. So as much as I resisted sending him to the local state preschool, I’m finding that sometimes when you let go a little and give up control, you find beautiful blessings just waiting to embrace you.
In other news: Nathan is now lined up for hippotherapy and aquatic therapy. I’m also thinking of having him start special needs yoga again. He will also be starting with a Rolfing practitioner this week.
And more exciting: He is going to have an Anat Baniel Method intensive next week! We found a local practitioner who is a mom of a child with special needs who learned the method. She is only about 30 min’s away! So next week Nathan will see her every day after school to see if ABM can be helpful to him.
We are also getting ourselves into the routine of doing an hour of ABR and an hour of CME every day. Things are falling into place for my little Munchkin!
Oh and tomorrow I have an appointment with the high risk perinatologist here in LA to take a look at Belle – I am excited and a bit nervous – throw a prayer up for us please!!!!
