I appreciate all of the support and kind words. Everyone really loved on us yesterday. Isaiah Jane did great with her MRI! Chris had a chance to see some of the staff from last week’s visit, and everyone was so supportive. He was present while she went under anesthesia, which I know he wanted. She was home before lunch. The only side effect we noticed? She belched like a grown man for awhile, as a result of her being intubated.
After she napped, we met with an early intervention intake specialist at our home. She explained the process to us and played with IJ for about an hour. According to her assessment, Isaiah’s only real deficiency seems to be in the area of motor skills. We’ll get the official results today. In the meantime, IJ seems to be in a sudden hurry to catch up. She even tried to push up on all fours during the assessment!
The spring-like weather & earlier sunrises make for sweet mornings with the big boys before school. This morning, Chris & I took on the morning duties together. I made their lunches while he served them breakfast. We argued about potato chip serving sizes and whether or not molasses tastes good in oatmeal. The boys just smirked and gobbled. After they left for school, I made this for Chris & myself. We sat on the couch and watched the Downton Abbey Christmas special. I might or might not have eaten some of my Valentine chocolate from my dad. I sipped ice coffee.
We have nothing on the agenda today. All three babies are just now stirring, and it’s nearly ten. Windows are open. Beef stew is in the crockpot. Plans have been made to walk to the park when the big boys get home. I’m grabbing coffee with some girlfriends tonight. It’s one of those days that serves as a reset button, and I’m pressing it over and over. Happy Thursday!
