Today we tour the school that Christina will be going to in the fall. I am excited and nervous about Christina starting school. It is still awhile yet, but the tour seems to be giving it focus.

School is almost done. I have two quizzes, one assignment, and any end test there may be. I am hoping to finish today and have everything soak in.

Things are going well at home. It has been hectic and nerve racking between Christina's appointments, her attitude, and Angela's appointments.

Christina has been playing hard attitude with mom and myself. We are winning though. It is a tough road.

Time for a refill of coffee and get ready to head out.

So I went to see Tanaguchi yesterday. The drive there was pretty good but the drive back was not too great. It was because I had to go potty and I held it all the way home. I was much happier once I went poopy on the potty. I went to bed early and then slept in until 9:30. So the doc news is that we will have another round of phenol botox in July. Other than that not much new stuff.

I had a week of no tears for all three therapists. I had fun playing with them instead of crying.  Mommy and daddy were so proud of me.

Mom speaking:
Christina is getting so big. The big girl is coming out more and more everyday. She sings with daddy and me. She is trying to talk more and say her ABC's. I am not too sure that I am ready for the baby to be gone. She is becoming more and more independent and I am so proud of her. I think amazing things will happen when school starts.

Huge steps

This week therapy went so well. Mommy does not stay with me it is just me and the therapist. There were no tears. I actually had fun.

Last night I stood all by myself by the couch. Mommy took pictures. They will show up on the slide show later. Today we spent lots of time outside. I walked around in the grass barefoot. I like the feel of the grass. I also rode a tricycle with mommies help. She pedaled my feet but I held on.

Things are going real well for nap and bed time as well. Mommy and daddy are very proud of me. I am proud of myself too.

Tea Party

Tea Party at the Eau Claire City Hall building.

I went to the Tea Party to show my frustration with the current government. It is not just the Federal government that is playing games with Christina's future. Our state government is about as bad.

Bailout? Who do they think they are. Irresponsible behavior by business leads to failure, let them fail. It is bad parenting to bail them out. Let them learn life's lessons.

Christina, I will look out for your future. And so will any good American.

I learned about the Chippewa Valley's Fair Tax group. I think it is worth checking out. Here is a link,

Happy Tax Day,

Happy Day after Easter!!!

Easter weekend was eventful. Christina got sick on Saturday, nothing serious, a runny nose to add to her teething and I think she had a headache.

Sunday, I made dinner. Donny, James and Robyn, and Ed came over.We had a nice visit.

Christina was up a lot on Friday and Saturday night. I tried to calm her on Friday with no luck. Saturday night I was able to keep her content for most of the time. I woke Angela up at 6 on Sunday and passed Christina on to her.

Christina is getting much better around people. Her cries have changed over the last few months. It is more of a whine than a scared/upset like it used to be. Progress is slow.

Angela is going out of town this coming Friday. That should be good for Christina and I.

The Easter Bunny

Today mommy and daddy took me to go see the Easter Bunny. He scared me, but he also scared lots of other kids too so I don't feel so bad.  Mommy had to sit with us for the picture. It was fun to have daddy go with us to the mall that is not his kind of place so...... Thanks daddy.

We also met with Barb today from UCP ( United Cerebral Palsy ). She had some good ideas for mommy and daddy.

I now have to work with all of my therapists by myself. Mommy is making me. I do not like it but I will get over it.

On Sunday I had dinner with Uncle Donny, daddy and mommy. It was Donny's birthday and I got to spend it with him. HEE HEE Daddy got to spend all day with him, I suppose that daddy and Donny would have more to talk about than me.

So we have just been hanging out doing fun stuff. 

So Happy Easter everyone. Check put the slide show for new pictures after this weekend.

Good news from the neurologist!!!

Dr. Burnstein said he is impressed with how far Christina has come. And, we don't have to go back for a year. I never thought those words would mean so much.

Christina has been giving Angela and myself some grief, it seems she wants the other parent no matter which one of us is holding her. Her upper molars have poked through, yet still creep along making her uncomfortable. It is nice to have behavioral issues for a change. Although, they can stop now.

Not much else is new. I still have a few weeks of school. It is going well. I am trying to get the most out of it. Angela is ready for a break, I hope she can relax in California.

Christina has been vocalizing more, she tries so hard. The phenol blocks and the Botox are wearing off too. She is still willing to walk, it is harder for her. You can see how hard it is. There have been times her little legs shake as she tries to take a step.

Sad now, gotta go.
Neurology and new stuff

Well the trip went very well. Christina was quiet all the way to the doctor. Not so much on the way home but she was hungry and tired and that would make anyone cranky.

So the neurology news................. We do not need to see him for a year!!!!! He said that there is nothing neurological going on everything that is going on at home is typical two and three year old stuff. HEE! HEEE! Got to love the ages two and three. He also stated again that he is really impressed with the progress in Christina's development. He said that he did not think that she would have made it this far. She is amazing. Also he said that she is a very smart girl but we all ready knew all lot those things.

Christina is doing well with Deb but only when mommy is gone. Christina seems to scream when mommy is around because that is who she wants. She is going through a mommy stage. It is getting better.

She is working more on crawling and doing very well with it.

We had the transition meeting with Tammy and the school teacher we think that she will do just fine.This is the next stage of development for her. So I think that we are feeling better about the whole thing. School will start in September. We are all going to tour the classroom on the 30th of April to get a better idea of the classroom environment.

Things are moving along very well.

Cole and I

Cole, mommy, Crystal, Evan and I went swimming last Friday. I had lots of fun. Mommy and I were chasing Evan. Cole was not so happy and I tried to comfort him but it did not work.  I swam for an hour. It was great.

This Friday Cole was over all day and we played with blocks. Mommy spied on us while we were playing. I also went over to Debs and I hung out with her for about an hour with out mommy. She did say later that she was peaking in on us, she saw that I gave her kisses and hugs.

On the 2nd of April I have a doctor appointment with Burnstien, my neurologist. We will keep everyone up to date if there is anything new.

New stuff that I am working on is talking and singing. I really like hard music like Pearl Jam and Slipknot. My walking has taken a backseat for now because of everything else I am working on sitting and grabbing stuff with two hands. I really like hangers. I can stick my head through the center and transfer from hand to hand.

Mommy and daddy have also busted me on my behavioral issues such as manipulation and being extremely impatient. So I am not getting away with as much.

I signed up for a class through continuing education with the UW. I was and am excited to learn more. Today was the first day I hit the books. Class officially started on Wednesday the 18th at 12:00.

It was an experience sitting down and focusing on learning again. It took a little bit to get into the routine. After a half hour or so of reading, I was back into the groove. I finished my first lesson and waiting for lesson two to come out.

Angela and Christina went to the mall today with Crystal and Evan. I'm still waiting to hear how their day went. They are both taking a nap.
