Early Intervention Conference

Excited about professional development!!!! As a Special Instructor / Evaluator / Developmental Specialist and specializing in motor and feeding instruction it is time for adult education!. Of course I found a book I want already and had to wear my sassy Early Intervention shirt :) . As a CLC (certified lactation counselor) it was so nice to find a feeding / nutrition book with a breastfeeding chapter!!!

And there is the belly...

Etta helped me take some pictures. I don't usually take bare belly photos but why not?

Etta's appointment

Etta has come a long way. We weren't sure she would even be walking by 2 or 3. She is running and talking now. She is still delayed and has an IEP but her basic genentics are normal. We did get some labs done today to rule out some metabic disorders. After they come back if they are OK we probably won't have to see the geneticist till around puberty. We have a neurological and developmental pediatrician referral we are waiting on now.... Those take months to get in to see.

53 days... Just a feeling but I think little one will be here the last week of March. Dreams, experience, knowing my body... Lots of signs just are leading me this feeling. Names? Elias Daffyd.... Not sure if that will stick but it is in my head right now. Now, the attic for baby stuff... Plenty of cloth diapers, plenty of clothes, I need to find my back up receiving blankets and maybe some socks and bibs. Those tend to disappear between babies... The baby bump is getting bigger even though I have only gained about 12 pounds...

Blessed Imbolc

Halfway to Spring!!!!

Ben and Eliot helped me explore the yard to see what is growing. We have some flowers blooming and the fennel looks like it will come back strong this year. The kids had to have a taste. They collected the seeds and spread them all over the front yard. If they all grow the yard could smell like a licorice forest....

My Altar was simple. I added my Brigid goddess and some salt and flowers but I didn't plan a working Altar for the day.
