"Where's Momma?"

For the first time since the littles have started speech therapy at the hospital, Chris was able to take them!  I took a nap and it was awesome...really, really awesome.  Both of them had great sessions and Little G's therapist said that her language skills have reached the low average for a 2 year old so she is catching up quickly!  She had a boom in language these past few months and it's just amazing to see and hear her progress.  In September, she was speaking on a 12-15 month level so she has come a long way!

It was Griffin's turn to have a parent in the room so Chris made himself comfy and observed.  He noticed that every time Griffin would get frustrated, he would sign "momma" and look around.  Melt my heart!  I am so proud of him and this has made me realize that he probably knows so much more than I actually let him say... if that makes sense.  I have fallen into that category of being "the kind of mom that anticipates my kids' needs before they have to verbalize them" or so I've been told...and I guess that goes for Griffin, too.  I really need to start making him communicate his needs like I have been doing with Little G.   It's kind of tough!

Griffin refused pizza the extreme of throwing it across the room and slinging my hand out of his face as I was trying to get him to take a bite.  He's always eaten it before but he refused to even taste this.  (It's the same pizza that I always order, no difference.  stinker.)  Oh... speaking of pizza, I short changed the pizza delivery guy tonight because, are you ready for this??????  I was so extremely excited and preoccupied because I had just found out that OLLIE HAS A FAMILY COMING FOR HIM!  HE'S ON THE 'MY FAMILY FOUND ME' page!  So I had to call the pizza place back and they returned to get the rest of their money.  I can't wait to introduce you to the family who will be adopting this little treasure.   I am absolutely thrilled.  <huge smile and tears in my eyes!>

But anyway, Big G has company over tonight so we are going to make some popcorn and watch a Barbie movie.

Love and Hugs!
