An Update–And Junior’s Exciting News

IMG_5523

Is it me, or is 2017 going be at light speed? I mean, seriously. Wasn’t it just Christmas???

It has been insane around here. The week after Christmas, I surprised my husband with a long family weekend in Yosemite for his birthday. The day after we returned, my husband came down with the flu. He was down for a full week. Then both kids got it. Three days after we finally had health back in our home, we left for my husband’s business trip and had our Apocalypse III Blizzard experience.

The week after we returned from that trip in early February, my husband ended up in the ER and needed immediate surgery. He had a second surgery a couple weeks later, and spent the rest of February and most of March recovering. Then Junior started soccer, we got caught up in our schoolwork, and both kids began karate lessons. So, that, in a nutshell has been our year so far. So forgive me for not updating sooner =)

One exciting update has to do with Junior’s therapy. Since he was a baby, he’s suffered from sensory issues, eventually gaining him a diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder. We’ve been seeing an OT since he was 2. He’s going to be 5 next month, and we just received the results of his latest sensory profile test. He no longer has SPD! He has shed that diagnosis, and now his only diagnosis is deafness.

So that is exciting. He is starting a second weekly speech therapy session in attempts to get his speech up to peer level. Though he is almost 5, his speech is closer to that of a 3.5 year old, so we are hoping an additional session will help him bridge that gap sooner.

So, that’s the latest from us. Hopefully things slow down a bit. I have a lot of fun school activities and projects I’ve been wanting to post as well!
