Jenny experienced a life long dream of seeing her long time love (Donny Osmond) in concert a couple nights ago. We were invited by some wonderful friends who also share a fondness for Donny. I don’t want to put words in another man’s mouth and declare him a groupie, but the husband of Jenny’s friend is a subscriber to the Donny website, has been to another Donny concert, purchased purple socks for the event, and has bought a fare share of Donny memorbillia. He will remain nameless but the evidence speaks for itself. For me, it was like meeting Jenny’s first boyfriend, so I was a bit jealous. Feel free to ask her about her Donny poster that she had as a kid. Jenny had a great time and I appreciate great people like these friends who continue to show such great love to Jenny in so many ways.
I wish I could report some new and incredible speech sounds or voluntary movements. Jenny continues to become stronger in the exhisting movements. Another friend (not a Donny groupie) who helps us with our signing skills made the comment of how Jenny has a much better range with her arm since he saw saw her a couple weeks ago. Jenny is becoming easier to communicate with since her signing has been given the extra boost by this movement. We are slowly adding signs to our vocabulary to hopefully get rid of finger spelling all the time. I tend to look up words she spells most and we work on those.
