Silly Stinky!

Stinky was caught pulling out her feeding adapter tube today.  She didn't even try to hide it.  She decided to chew on it while her food continued to run through the line.  Can you see the little drop of formula on her arm?  Silly Stinky, leave that tube alone!

  Remember when she pulled out her nasogastric feeding tube?  She was just four months old!  Silly girl.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! 

'A man's work is from sun to sun, but a mother's work is never done.'

A special shout out to our moms, Cynthia and Rocio.  You both rock!  :)  We love you so much and thank you for everything!

Now, some pics below:  The first few pics are my Mother's Day gift that Stinky brought home from school.  Yes, I know that Stinky didn't actually make my gift, but I was still so happy to receive it!  I remember making homemade gifts for my mom in school and it was so much fun!  It was even more fun watching my mom's smile/reaction each time I gave her one of those handmade gifts. 

I just love it:  My little stinker is a Big Stinky now, she goes to school now AND she brings me cute Mother's Day gifts!

The rest are just some recent pics of me and Stinky and one with Ava in the park.

Stinky Goes to School!

Since Annabel has turned 3, she will no longer receive her therapies from Early Childhood Intervention (ECI).  She is now eligible for the Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities (PPCD). 

PPCD:  This program includes physical, occupational and speech therapy.  This program also includes normal preschool activity such as outside play, music time, circle time, story time, etc.  Can you believe it?  Stinky is going to school!  Stinky has a full-time aide that is always with her, she even rides the bus with Stinky to and from school.

Stinky rides the bus, too?  Yes, she does!  So far, so good:  Stinky seems to enjoy her school so far.  The teachers and her aide have commented on how happy Annabel is and that she is a hard worker, too.  So far, Annabel is ready for a nap as soon as she gets home, so she IS a hard worker!

Momma cried on the first day and cried on the second day, too.  But the second day was also the 'first' day for Stinky to ride the bus.  We are very excited, just nervous, too!  School will be great for her but also hoping she doesn't start getting sick all the time.

The photos below:   Stinky waving with her face behind a blanket.  She is still very sensitive to sunlight, so we cover her up.  But we wanted her face showing for one photo, so that's why she is turned to the side in the other photo!  She's not scared of the bus, she's mad at the sun!
