Tawni finally has a front tooth coming in!
I have been concerned about her signing. I read about other kids with ds that are younger than her or the same age as her and they are already signing several words. I know I shouldn't compare.... but it concerns me, makes me think is she pretty mentally challenged? But she can do "patty-cake" and "peek-a-boo". And then this week, she is signing "eat", and "play", she can also do "all-done". The only thing is she does it when we say the word not really in a way of telling us what she wants, she usually just whines and I know what she wants. Except this morning after taking Tori to school when I was getting Tawni out of the car seat she was signing eat!!! Yeah! I was so excited, and then we all started clapping!
We started potty training Ty today, so we will see how that goes. Sometimes he's willing and then other times he says no way!

We had a good Memorial Day weekend! TJ and his girlfriend came over on monday and we all went to the lake for a couple of hours. Later they came over and we grilled. Ty and Tori played in the water and Tori learned a lesson, when asked if you want some sunscreen, say YES! Or end up like a lobster and in pain like she is now!

A Little Taste

Well, I have not been feeling well today, I either picked up some kind of bug or food poisoning. Anyways, I have been out of it today. So this morning my precious daughter Tori got the babies up, made their breakfast and feed them and even cleaned up! She is so awesome, even right now, while I am sneeking this in she is in the room playing with the babies. For the rest of the day my husband has been on duty. Which bless his heart has been a little humorous to watch. Dinner time seems to be the most chaotic around here, so made it to the couch to lay down and I just couldn't help but smile, he got a "little taste" of what I do in the evenings. Tawni wants dinner and she wants it now!! Cheerios sometimes just don't do the trick she wants the real deal. Ty's in the living room while dad is in the kitchen cooking and he too is yelling "Daddy where is my truck" over and over and over again! All I could do was smile! So now Tori is playing with the babies, well because Daddy is tired and needs to rest for a minute before bath and bedtime☺

Just a Slacker

I don't know why I haven't blogged in so long. Just a slacker I guess ☺
Tawni is doing so good, pulling up on EVERYTHING, and climbs up the stairs in the blink of an eye!
Ty is growing and talking like crazy! He did qualify to go to school 2 days a week for 2 hours to help work on his speech. I really think he will enjoy it and be so happy. We haven't told him yet because well you know telling an almost 3 year old can't understand that it is still 3 months away.
Tori CAN'T WAIT to get out of school and I know TJ can't wait, I know I am excited about him graduating. I really worry about him though being out in the real world, hoping I did teach him how to be responsible. He has not made some wise choices here lately so hopefully he will shape up really fast!
Well I think my hubby is home, I let him have an evening out to go see a movie, hopefully he will return the favor!
