I have so many thoughts that run through my head regarding Luke. It is so hard for me to swallow this PDD-NOS pill. Why??? I see his twin sister that has no struggles. She can answer the WH questions without any thought. She can have social conversations without problems. She can sit still and listen easily. Why can't Luke? I so wish they were identical on that part...who wants to see their baby struggle. Not me! I hate that he has to work so hard to be a "typical" 4 year old. I am so grateful for all the things that he is good at. He gets excited to see me and cries when I leave. He gives the best hugs and kisses. His cuddles are the BEST. He says the ABC's with such character. Loves counting with team Umi Zoomie on Nick JR. Enjoys singing twinkle twinkle little star for whoever will listen. Never meets a stranger. Always makes sure his sister has and gets the same thing he has.
Last Wednesday we received some very AWESOME news...Luke got into the school we so disparately wanted. Yes, it won't start until August, but we are so excited!! Molly will also join him in the same classroom. There are therapists at the school, plus you can have outside therapists come in. This will be a 45 minute daily (8:30 to 4) commute to and from for Todd and the grandparents. Unfortunately I won't be able to help. I work the opposite direction. Thank GOD we have family to help us!
I want to apologize for not getting back into my blog reading yet. Todd and I just took a week vacation by ourselves to celebrate our 15 year anniversary. Which really is in March, but didn't want to be with the spring breakers. :) I promise to commit as soon as I get settled back in. xoxo
