Where are we now?
It has been a while... I know, but Alyssa is now a toddler going on her terrible 2's. We have been quite busy, but just a brief up to date.
It is February, so Alyssa is now 29 months, she is signing a lot more and communicating better with words. The signing is in English and the speaking words are in Spanish.The signing words are about 12, but the spoken words are less than 7. Our major achievement is that she has been going potty. Every morning, she wakes up and goes potty for number one. On our days off, she signs potty and she goes for number two. Sorry for too much information, but I am so proud we are getting there. She still goes to school where she gets therapy 3 times a week, but she school provides complementary therapy daily. I believe the success has been great thanks to school. Are we walking?...we are running...at least she tries. Alyssa is extremely active, she climbs on everything she can, she even learn how to climb out of the playpen, so we cannot leave her alone anymore. What are our goals? I guess we are still working towards the speech, which it is her major issue. She is still struggling on closing her mouth at times. Due to the low tone, she keeps her mouth open, but I have to remind her to close it otherwise, drool tends to happen!.
It is a journey, but I thank God everyday that she is with us. We are happy to have her, and I cannot be more proud that God chose me to be her mom. I love you Alyssa!!
