July update!

OK so where is the time going? I just cant get over that tomorrow is the 1st day of August! This summer has really flown by. I apologize for not updating soon like I said I would but Caleb has really had a hard time adjusting to school this year! I'll be updating that site later this week. Cami has also made it hard on me she has become very attached to the hip lately so I don't get much done.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket There has been many new things I need to share that Cameran has been doing over the past few weeks, that I hope I don't leave anything out! Starters my little girl is Babbling again...........Hallelujah!!!!! Of course she will never do it when you ask her but on a typical day(non fussy that is) she goes at it all day. She is making B and M sounds. The b she is going byeyayayayayayaya or BBBBBBBBBBB. The M is just MMMMMMMM no a's in it yet. She is also making the raspberries again.

Last week we started her on Pecks and she has done relatively well. For those who don't know pecks its pictures of everyday items. Like right now we are just working on milk and cereal. SO we have a picture of her sippy cup and fruit loops cereal her fav! She then has to point, tap, pick up(along those lines) to what she wants, she then gets what she asked for. She doesn't fully understand it yet and gets really mad when she picks up the milk card when she really wanted the cereal. But we have to give her what she pointed at. At first she wouldn't even participate in this but now she is actually picking the cards up and we do hand over hand and say "I want ......." Believe it or not she is even tolerating her hands being held...Somewhat(depending on the mood)but it has gotten better!

Her signing has improved greatly and its so funny to watch her because she may not speak but man can that girl speak through sign language. An example: The other day we took a brush away from her and normally she will just slightly tap those hands together for "more" but this time she was smacking those hands loudly and bouncing up and down for More! It was like she was in church really getting down praising the Lord it was hilarious! Cute too is that mouth flys open like she is really gonna tell you a thing or two but nothing comes out. We are so close I can feel it!

Her interest in toys has gotten 10 times better she is actually taking the time to explore new things. So I guess its off to Wally World(Wal-Mart) for a new stage of toys.

Physical Therapy is going great although Cameran is really giving her more of a work out. Ever since she has come of the Klonopin her mind and thinking is opening more and more week by week. So she really is starting to understand things better which means more attitude when she doesn't want to do something they want her too. So she stiffens those little legs up making it difficult for he PT to bend them. Then when she picks her up she does the noodle so she cant hold her up to work. Little Stinker is what she is. They had ordered her some more shoe inserts and those came in last week to help straighten up those little feet and ankles.

More news her hair is coming back in. Lots of cute baby hair so now its time to go get the rest trimmed and evened up with the rest, its all kind of crazy right now. Maybe we can finally go get her 2 year pics done horrible I know since she is 2.5 years old now. Cameran also had a Dentist appointment last week. We take her to a Pediatircian Dentists office who are absolutely wonderful. Well I knew this visit was going to be different from all her prior visits....Again its the whole being more alert ordeal! Well lets just say a mother knows best and I told them that she bites down when a toothbrush is put into her muth so be careful. Well the woman stuck her hand in her mouth and Cameran bit down and would not let go they had to pry that girls mouth off. Cameran screamed and hollared that whole visit took 3 of us to hold her down. Totally opposite from her last visits. You know they always put notes in their files of past visits(they where reading me her notes from her last visits on how well she did) I'm pretty sure this one is gonna be highlighted!!!!! LOL! Needless to say it was over quickly she got a great report of no cavities and perfect straight white teeth! Surprising since I cant get back in the back with a toothbrush so they gave me a few soft wegdes to prop her mouth open with so I dont get bit which wouldnt be the first time ;)

Last but not least Cami still remains SEZIURE FREE!!!!! Its been 15.5 weeks!!!! We are thrilled and cant wait to get her off another med. Which is coming up quickly in September we will wean her off the Keppra if not sooner.

That's about all I can think of at the moment but I'm sure I'll remember more later! Here's a slideshow of Cami over the summer! Oh theirs one of her on their crying her little heart out these are her new little fits....Her terrible twos kicking in! Gotta love it! You might have to give the slideshow a minute to download if you dont see it right off!
