Sunday we went to Carmel, IN. for our first Down Syndrome of Indiana picnic. It was a chance for families to get together and for the kids to have fun. They had water activities, did spray tattoos, a guy who made stuff for the kids with balloons and a playground. It was nice to see so many other families and I ran into a few local women there and found out that DSI is going to give our local playgroup some money to do some cool stuff here in Terre Haute!
Sophia has also had her therapies this week, speech on Monday and physical therapy on Wednesday, our occupational therapist is on vacation this week so we were down one therapy. She was a little bit of a pill this week, and I really think she may be a little congested or something. She was very fussy Monday for the speech therapist and pissed off, as usual, for the physical therapist. We are really trying to push her to lunge forward and then sit back up, and get up on all fours, but she doesn't seem to feel very confident in herself to take that leap from sitting to tummy. She can do it, but she tries to avoid it at all costs! She's also been a little more stand offish with oral feeds as well, and spitting up more than what she had been previously. I'm not real sure what is going on, BUT I have a feeling she may be getting one or possibly two little teeth in! I swear I can see something coming in down on the bottom front, but I'm just not 100% for sure yet. We also went on Tuesday to have Sophia's feeding port changed. It is only good for 6 months and so she was due to have the old one taken out and replaced. The whole thing took about 1/2 hour and things went fine and she is doing good with the new button.
Jayden and I have also been taking advantage of this HOT weather the last few days and skipped nap time yesterday and swam for about 2 1/2 hours and had a blast! Today Sophia's nurse came this afternoon for Jayden and mommy time and we decided to go swimming again. We got about 1 1/2 hours in before the storm and it was so much fun! Jayden loves that little pool and just acts like a complete goof ball :) She was doing cannon balls off the side :) and dancing around in the water and running into the side of the pool and falling back into the water. I really don't know where she gets all her craziness? :) It' been a good week and we are ready for the weekend once again! I'm going to try and upload pictures from the picnic and our fun in the sun, enjoy! (Pictures are at the bottom of the page, until I figure out how to attach them to the correct post!)
