The big day is September 1st

Our little girl will be starting preschool on wednesday september 1st! Mommy is excited to go get her a back pack and school supplies for her first day of school! She will go Monday through Thursday from 9 to 1130 am. I had a meeting today with her teacher and all other therapists and assistants in the classroom that will be involved with her education while at school. I really liked her teacher, she was very nice and has many years of experience working with special needs children. She will get physical, and occupational therapy there at school and also speech therapy. They will tie all of that in to her daily routine at school amoung the many other activities she will get to do. She will also have some kids that are developing at a normal level in the classroom too so that will be good for her to interact with them since she doesnt get that interaction at home. I think it will be really great for her developement to see and play with all the kids and she will be exposed to activities that will help her in so many ways that she doesnt get to do here at home. They will work with her on making choices and how to communicate her needs. She also was casted on tuesday for her ankle braces and should get those in the next couple of weeks. These will give her a little more stability in her ankles to help to her stand for longer periods of time. I will post pictures of her on her first day and send the camera with her nurse on the first day so all of you can feel like your part of this big event! :) Keep praying for our little angel xoxoxoxo from Aleah!

It been a long time!

I know it has been a long time since my last post. Aleah is doing well. She is improving in therapy and getting better with eating in speech therapy. She is getting so big and tall and will be turning three in a few weeks. It is hard to believe seems like just yesterday we had her swaddled in a tiny pink blanket and now its 4t clothes, where has the time gone?? September tenth is the big day and we are going to have a lady bug or dora party, mommy hasnt decided yet. I will be posting pictures soon and want to try and keep up with this blog better, Aleah just keeps me so busy I have let this go for a while. Her seizures are under control now, we found a rescue med that really works for her so I am so thankful for that. God is so good to us, and even know we have to go through struggles with her he is always on time and brings us through! I am very thankful for my little girl and that she is doing as well as she is doing. Keep her in your prayers, I would love to see her walk and talk someday, and I am still holding out hope that she will.
