Playing with Daddy and sister on made up instruments – left over tubing for them, a 60cc syringe for Bella. So much fun!
Therapy – OT and I talked this week about how Bella is afraid of everything! Just makes me want to hug her and protect her all the more. ST has a theory about Bell. I was gone for three days this week with Joy’s surgery and an all day appointment for big sister. So one of her sessions this week was without me. ST says she talked and talked during that session, but when I was there for the second one, she had very limited vocalizations. She thinks that Bella has associated sign language with me. You know how in some homes, the mom speaks one language to the child and the dad another? The kid figures that out. I am the signer in Bella’s life. Interesting! Also gives me hope for the school year. Her home bound teacher signed everything to her, as well as spoke to her. Her new teacher at school isn’t as fluent with sign language. That had me worried. But I’m thinking Bella’s going to be OK. She will adapt and be fine.
Look who wants to dress herself? That is a pair of pants, a pair of underwear, a shirt and a bra over her PJs!
We visited Houston’s Japanese Gardens. Bella loved the fish. She took off her brake and was headed straight for the water! Good thing someone noticed!! :) Not sure she would have enjoyed swimming with the fish!
