Bella’s Week

Playing with her sisters


This crazy sweet baby – she loves her Mama and hummus!  She has reached a new developmental milestone – separation anxiety.  If I leave the house, she is so sad.  Her face just melts.  She asks to go.  Breaks my heart.


Bella exploring – notice those feet avoiding any tactile contact.  Painting in therapy.


Bella had her big ARD this week on Tuesday.  ST, OT,and PT were added.  I’m sorry, but what a joke.  ST is a group lesson once a week that she was already getting because she was in the classroom.  OT and PT are just consultations for the teacher.  We really needed to do three months of testing and documentation for that?  Really all of the changes just created more work for her already over-worked teacher.  (Have I mentioned how much I love her teacher??  I adore her!)  Anyway, Jason built Bella a new walker for school.  The classroom environment is too crowded for her to use it in class, but for the hallways (going to the bathroom, to motor lab, that type thing) it is perfect!  Jason made it and painted it pink.  We put her name on it.  We showed her last night and she walked all over the living room and entryway, giggling the whole time – I so wish we’d gotten it on film!  ( I still think it’s funny that she HATES the expensive walker specially designed to help her, but this $20 PVC walker her Daddy made, she loves! Whatever works! )


My silly girl who loves selfies – I turned it to video instead of camera and got this.  Love this sweet baby!
