I know, I'm a slacker!

I haven't posted in awhile, but things have been so busy around here lately. We're starting to really get into the swing of things with little J's therapies. He's been working so hard during his sessions and afterwards as well. This kid just doesn't stop! We've added one more therapy session starting this week and I know we have one other to get started. This kid's got a calender a mile long! It's been really hard trying to find a balance between what little J needs, letting little J just be a kid, having family time, having us time, and getting the things of daily life done.

While I know, that there are many things that little J needs, I don't want our lives to revolve around his diagnosis. I want him to have time to just be a kid and I don't want him to get burned out on all the therapies. I think we're doing a good job with the balance so far, but to be honest, just looking at his calender sometimes tires me out.

Well, also as you know, little J was quite proud of himself for his new skill of standing in his crib and playpen. Well, now he's has taken to climbing up on his knees to play with things on the furniture as well as climbing onto our this kid is really giving me a run for my money now. I'd better find time to hit the gym and get my stamina up!

Thank you to everyone who emailed me checking in to make sure all was okay. I really appreciate it. I promise, I'll get back to ya'll soon!

Take Care!
