Rough Ride

Life here has been really busy as of late. A lot of doctor appointments for Charlotte as later this month she will be turning a year old! Coming in the next week or two we have a major hearing test, an ear doctor appointment, physical therapy sessions, and then there are other doctor appointments in the beginning of next month because her birthday falls on Black Friday this year! 

Getting to this point has been a very long road. I honestly was not sure if we would ever get here. With so many different health concerns and doctors, I am very proud of where we are these days. She is finally making her own red blood cells, which means that the blood doctor appointments are being pushed out two months and not every month like we had been doing. Her heart doctor did not want to see her back for a year. If we can pass this hearing test coming up, hopefully, that doctor will not want to see her for a good while too! 

It has been a rough ride for us here. Jeff has no idea what has been going on just that something has been going on. It is difficult to explain all this to a two-year-old. He is still not really communicative, although he has started to say ‘Da’ and ‘Ma’. Which is great progress! I am hoping to get him in for an evaluation sometime this month  too. He will go to where Charlotte gets her physical therapy done. People ask me why he is not in daycare or in a tots program, well because he does not talk mainly. I think it would be beyond frustrating for those people and for him as well if no one knew what he needed. I just do not want to put him or them through that. 

Charlotte has come so far in a few months! She is doing so many things that she could not do before physical therapy. Now we have an appointment for First Steps to come in and give her some therapy here as well as going to physical therapy. Which I am sure can do nothing but help her! I am hoping to see her crawling soon. She has not mastered that quite yet and I can’t wait to see it happen. She is getting so big! We are giving her table food nowadays because she refuses to eat baby food and she is doing really well with that. She has three teeth in already and I am sure there are more trying to pop in soon! I am just in awe of my little girl. She has been through so much in her short little life and she is still her smiley self every day! I can learn a lot from her for sure. 

My business is doing well. It has been a struggle to get it started for sure. I had a goal of making $99 in October since I got a late start and I met that goal! So, for November I have a goal of $250 and I am working it! I love selling Origami Owl.I Have a facebook party already booked for this month and I am looking for more! So, if you know someone who wants to host send her my way! Oh and if you book with me before Nov. 18th I am throwing in a special free gift just for you!
