Zach had his 8th birthday today. Jenny began the day by signing “Happy Birthday” to him. She told me that last year she could only blink “happy birthday”. This year she signed it. Next year, she tells me she will tell him with her voice. I believe she will. Our therapies are going poorly. Getting into a routine is difficult. I do more with taking care of the kids, so I have less time. Jenny was hoping to do aqua therapy in her parents pool, but I do not see it being completed anytime soon. I think she has been holding out for this pool, so she refuses to use others. Rather than seeing increases in certain areas, I see weakening. A couple other areas are still becoming stronger- mostly her right arm.
On a different note, Jessie has adopted “y’all” as part of her vocabulary. It naturally comes out of her mouth now. She also prefers her boots over sandles or shoes.
