Rory is now 4! I really just can't believe it. She had her 4 year checkup today and that went pretty well. Her weight was a little bit of an issue, which I knew it would be. DH loves to feed her junk but she will eat fruits, etc. so it was good he took her. I wanted him to hear it straight from the doc. It's also time to start taking her to a dentist...NOT looking forward to that. Any tips ladies??
We also had Rory's birthday party on Saturday. It was at a place called Little Sport. What a great time everyone had! They shut the place down for our party, the kids had free play time in their play area which had toys galore! From there, the kids then went in to the next room where they received 40 minutes of instruction which included shooting hoops and a kiddie obstacle course. Afterwards was time for pizza and cake! It was money well worth spending. Rory had a great day and I had a stress free time!
As for Lexi, she's still not connecting very well with her occupational therapist. They just aren't clicking for some reason. Otherwise, I believe her OT therapy is going well. Her DI therapy is going excellent! She's add the following words: Kelly (her therapist), your welcome, dada (she hasn't really been saying that before) and a few more that I cannot seem to recall right now.
Now for the sad news...Kelly (her di therapist) will be returning to her teaching job soon and after this week will no longer be Lexi's therapist. She'd like to stay on, coming out on Saturdays if possible but I will need to call her supervisor. I've already spoken to the supervisor once when she called to set up the new girl to come out and I'm not too thrilled with her. The replacement they want to send will not be keeping the same schedule. Instead of Mondays and Thursdays at 1, this girl wants Tuesdays at 12 and Thursdays at 2:30. I've already expressed my concern as Tuesdays were never an option for us and the time on Thursday is no good since Lexi naps between 2 and 3. She pressured me into accepting these times stating they are just trying to fill up the days and I can work it out with the therapist when she comes out.
My feelings are...I'd much rather keep Kelly one day a week then have to acclimate Lexi to someone new two days a week. Lexi does so well with Kelly. She's made significant progress, so much so, that we can leave her alone in the room with Kelly and she doesn't freak out. She even said bye bye Kelly as Kelly drove away last week.
Wish me luck in my phone call to the supervisor!
