We are 2 Years Old

I am sorry I haven't been posting in a long time but I have just been soooo busy with work, the kids and C's therapy. By the time the kids are in bed I am so tied I just get in bed and go to sleep.

The trio is doing great!!
L: He has become such a Daddy's boy. He LOVES his Daddy!!!! The minute his Daddy walks in the door L becomes Hubby's shadow. L is still using his own language but is really starting to use works we can all understand:)

C: He is our biggest baby weighting about 3 lbs more than the other 2, at 25.6 lbs. He has now had his Cochlear implant turned on for about 2 months. It is a lot more work that what I had first thought. Right now we are exploring more therapy options for him. I am terrified that we aren't doing enough for him now and it will effect the rest of his life. The problem is, is that really no one in this area has had much experience with a CI kid under the age of 3. Out of the 106 children in the ISD right now only 6 have a CI. In a few weeks we are going to be taking C to therapy up at Texas Tech. I pray that it is the best for him. He is doing good at wearing his implant (we have only lost the head piece once). We have the CI turned up to normal hearing range and as he gets older and is able to tell us what he is hearing the CI can be tweaked. At this point C is measuring at a 3 month old hearing level, which we are told is good since he has had the CI for only 2 months. He is vocalizing by grunting and cooing much more to communicate and just 2 weeks ago said Mumu. I walked past him to go to the bathroom., he got upset, followed me and started to bang on the bathroom door yelling Mumu. I don't think he truly meant to say Momma but I am taking it since D and L said Dada first!!

D: She is the toot of the bunch. She gets into EVERYTHING and teaches her brother to do bad things!!! You have to watch what she says around you because she will repeat what she hears!! She is saying up to 3 word sentences and can sing some of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Start".

June 22 the kids turned 2 and we had a fun Micky Mouse party. We had a great turn out of about 40 people and had a blast!! Here are a few pic's of the party and some of our summer fun.
