WE WON!!!! I realize that not all of our blog readers are facebook friends so I wanted to make sure we got the word out that Leo the Lion came in first place with 501 votes. Thank you to all who voted for him. We are waiting for his new ipad to be delivered. Jeremy has promised to help me learn how to navigate the ipad and how to download apps that will be most beneficial to Leo (and his brothers). We are anticipating using the ipad for developing some fine motor skills, cause and effect skills, and fun interaction when he is eating and has to be in his high chair. Thank you again for voting and helping to spread the word.
Leo is doing so well. Last week his PT helped him climb up on our turned over laundry basket, which was pushed against the sofa, to finally climb up on the sofa. He was so proud of himself and continued to do it at least another 15 times. I was especially pleased when our PT said repeating a learned skill like that over and over is typical toddler behavior. Yea! Typical toddler- not words usually associated with Leo. Eating is still a work in progress, but I have hope that someday he will eat by mouth. He is also using the sign for "daddy", "more" and "I want" somewhat consistently.
Life is busy as like everyone else we are gearing up for Thanksgiving. Jeremy spent some time tonight helping our nephew work on a graduation project for school. We are catching a glimpse for how demanding high school work can be and how much a teenage boy can eat. I do believe I will be in trouble when all 5 boys are teenagers.
We have some exciting things in the works for 2013 and will take the time to share them in a later post. God is at work and is opening some doors we are excited to walk through.
