I return here today (after a long time break) with a heavy heart.  We've had an incident in our community this week involving two girls and bullying.  A video was taken.  The girl (who was the target in the video) gave the video to her mom who then posted i...

So, what in the world has been happening for the past eight months?
It has been a long while since I have posted here.  I figured I'd give a little update on things going on in our world. 1)  We transitioned Ayden from his school and teacher he had been with since Kindergarten (and some of his classmates since he was 3!) at...

Feeling Frustrated
It isn't often I put down frustrations on here - but I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with them right now.  Back in the update for Emmalina, I posted about how we were having an OT out to evaluate her sensory issues.  I sat with the OT who basically did a sens...

Update on the Family Part 3: Issac
This should be the easiest of my updates, no worries about any developmental issues!  Right now though, this little guy is my most difficult child.  He is mouthy, stubborn, strong willed, bossy, confident, and exactly a perfect mix of his mom and dad.  You ...

Update on the Family Part 2: Emmalina
I was looking back over posts to figure out when my last update on Emma was, and found most of my recent posts had been about STX209.  So we'll start fresh today! Emma will be two in about 2.5 weeks.  As you know from reading previously, we have had her in ...
