Just words

Today Big Daddy and I met with the therapists who evaluated Littlebit last month.  Initially, I thought she was only having her speech assessed, but they ended up doing both physical and occupational assessments.  Today, we met about Littlebit’s IEP.  Today, they wrote “developmental delay” on a line.

Link Love Friday-Edition 187(or something like that)

Fall weather has definitely shown up here in Ohio this week.  The beginning half of the week was nothing but cold and rain.  Big Daddy threw a little bit of a fit, but I turned the heat on Monday morning.   It was 62 in the house and that is just too cold with little people.  […]

I mentioned doing the KCWC last week. It didn’t go so well. I guess when you are expecting 35 people for a birthday party and weekend company. I don’t really even have anything to share, but a no-sew tutu. BUT, I did sew some and I MISSED it. I haven’t really had much of a […]
