Settling in…well as much as we can to our very busy ‘regular’ schedule J
This week we started back with all of Rose’s speech sessions, dance class, and riding lesson (it’s a good thing I am home to chauffeur her around!). As long as the BCIU isn’t on break (that’s where Rose gets 2 of her 4 speech sessions weekly) or nothing else is canceled, the only week day with nothing on the schedule is Wednesday.
So here’s how the week looks:
Monday we started our day with a speech session and then headed off to Echo Hill...if you live in the area you really need to check out this store. It has a mix of amazing local and health products including raw milk and a TON of natural toothpastes. Rose wanted to bring her baby with us to push in the 'baby' carts ;)
We also stopped by the post office and picked up our new supply of water bottles, which Rose insisted on washing for use. (on a side note, the stand Rose has used for almost two years set on the highest setting, we now had to lower! my little girl is growing up)
And to finish our Monday fun, we made a delicious pumpkin cake. Really, it was super easy and very kid friendly since we didn't even have to get the mixer out.
We even got to enjoy lunch with daddy!
Tuesday we had our first session with our new BCIU therapist. Rose is making SUPER progress with her speech and I was a bit worried how a new therapist would fit into the mix. Rose warmed up very quickly and interacted very well with our new therapist and I was impressed with how organized she was and had some great new ideas to keep Rose progressing!
Rose was also very interested in tents and mommy made her an awesome tent for her and all her babies :)
Silly mommy decided to pick-up an overtime shift at work from 12am-8am...so Rose spent the day with grandma, so I could sleep. I picked Rose up after her nap and took every one out to eat! Rose, of course, picked 5 Guys ;)
Thursday we had another speech session and then after some play time at home headed off to Rose's riding lesson. There was a new little pony to ride and Aunt Kate gave Rose her lesson. When asked how she liked the pony she said he was 'bumpy'...because of his very short legs when he trots he was much choppier than a larger pony :)
We also got to hang out with cousin Trip for a little bit.
Friday was another day full of fun and a speech session! We started the day by going through Rose's dress-up outfits and she pretended to go around the house 'trick or treating'. Lately Rose loves the Berinstein Bear books and there area couple with the cubs going 'trick or treating', so I think that is where she got the idea :)
We have also started getting our veggie/fruit box again. Rose loves going through all the goodies when it comes. Oh, and she is a HUGE fan of kale chips :)
Saturday Justin and Rose went to a picnic at Uncle Matt and Aunt Jenni's...this was just a rues for sharing their exciting news that they are expecting their first child in May 2015! Rose is very excited to have another little baby to play with :)
This weekend was a bit chilly and Sunday Justin turned on the fireplace, love it!
We also had craft time Sunday morning and taught Rose about making new colors by mixing colors, usually she just mixes them all and gets brown!
We used our 'new' colors to make leaves on a tree that was drawn on her paper. It was a super fun fall activity and now I have new artwork for the fridge :)
Here are some fun Rose faces:
Have a great week!
