The last time I posted I was really having a hard day. I don’t feel so helpless very often, but I think it’s best to be upfront with my emotions and feelings. It makes it easier to move beyond that. He has made so much progress since he started therapy and I know that he is going to do well in life. And most importantly he is happy. Last Friday he was at Grandma’s house and was reading a book and suddenly he knows all the animal sounds and said Duck! I have heard “woo woo” for a dog before and I think I remember hearing “moo” way back when, but this was far beyond and it was just really impressive. It just goes to show you he knows more than he lets on. I think that the new speech therapy is making a huge impact. I found out the next day that she’s been working on animal sounds since last week. I think I am going to try to continue that. I was thinking about flashcards or something for body parts and animals and maybe colors and shapes. I’ll have to think about it.
We are working on giving Thomas a little brother or sister. We’ve actually been trying since he was about 8 months old. I just started on Clomid this month since the doctor thinks I am not ovulating correctly. Hopefully this will do the trick. I’m getting a bunch of tests done this week to see how my hormone levels are and also to see if I have insulin resistance. I have a good chance of that with family history of diabetes and having gestational diabetes with my first pregnancy. The doc suspects that I have PCOS, so it will be interesting to see if that is the case. At least there is stuff that they can do about it. I am crossing my fingers that the Clomid will work and that this is our month. Scott and Amy just had their baby a week ago today. I still have not met little Hailey, but I can’t wait. She looks just like Scott in the pictures and she has these huge pinchable cheeks. I just can’t wait to meet her.
We are going on vacation in less than a month now. I’m really excited. I can’t wait to see everyone again. I also can’t wait to see the mountains and do some hiking. It will be interesting with Thomas, but it’ll be fun. There are a bunch of things for young kids to do in the area too, like pony rides and bumper boats and mini golf. We’ll find something that he’ll like I’m sure.
