Thankfully things have been pretty quite lately. Not to say the boys have been quite.lol Just doing really well at the moment. Braden has been going to therapy in clinic and so far so good. He really enjoys getting out and I just hope he will stay well. They have many precautions in place to keep their kids from getting sick. It also helps that Braden only has therapy one on one and not with other kids.
Braden is doing really well with his home school teacher. :-) He had his first in home speech session on Friday and his teacher said he is so smart. :-) He is really good at getting what he wants without words. I just wish it wasn't hindering him from speaking. I have been really good about making him sign and he has a new sign for movie that he uses often. He is also doing great eating. He will feed himself a grill cheese now. All I have to do is give him a few pieces at a time and he will eat. Now I just need to find a bigger variety. He will also eat sandwich crackers broken in 4's. Which is a big deal because use to if a pc was broken and not cut just perfectly he wouldn't eat it. He would throw the so called imperfect pieces on the floor. lol He is something else but we are so proud of him for getting over his need to everything to be perfect. He even gets his hands dirty now without too much stress over it. I worry sometimes that he will be very OCD as an adult but that concern is gradually going away.
Grayson is doing well but has some issues with his temper. We are working on it but he is still tough to feed as well. His diet is hashbrowns, fruit bars and graham sticks. It's a horrible diet but the ped and research on the net all say it's his age and he will grow out of it. Let's hope so.... He is staying around 20 lbs but I can tell he is growing because his pants are getting shorter and shorter. :-) He is also full of energy and climbs on everything. He is an accident waiting to happen. I almost got sick the other nite because he fell of the computer chair and cut his head while I was trying to cook dinner. One good thing about him being so small is we can't reach up to high yet.
Both boys are working on puzzles during the day. They love them and I really wish that the dog hadn't chewed up most of their Melissa and Doug puzzles. :-( Poor Briley she just can't resist wood objects for chewing. She also loves milk and graham stiks. lol We have lost many a sippy cup and snack cup to the Dog lately. I say it's too many rainy days and not enough time in the yard for her. She also hates when Stephen works late or is out of town. She is like a 4th child in a good way. She is right in the middle of us all the time and the boys love her for it. They can sit on her, roll on her, hug on her, she doesn't mind. She doesn't let them steal her attention and she isn't hard to please. When they go to bed she wants to be in bed with them. lol Unfortunately, they are not old enough for that yet but in time we will let her. She loves G's toddler bed and in the mornings I will catch her sleeping there. When Grayson is done with it we will have to give it to her. She would be thrilled. :-)
