Just Playn' Around

Okay, sorry for the delayed post. I spent the week in Sacramento last week while Kevin was home with the kids. Let's just say he was exhausted when I got home Friday night.

Interesting things going on in Alveyland...

Lizzie has swelling and a small lump in her right neck/shoulder muscle. We've done a full blood panel (everything normal), X-rays (again normal) and this last Friday she went in for an MRI. Normally they like to put children her age under general anesthia so they hold still, but they let her try to lie still first. She was very brave and was able to do it! We were very proud of her. We should have results this week. We just had our first parent-teacher conference for the year, and Lizzie is doing great! She is reading at an advanced third grade level and loves school.

Tori started speech therapy at Lizzie's school. She thinks she is such a big girl now. She is really speaking well, but they just want to keep on eye on her development. Tori continues to have a great time wherever she goes and teaches us to find joy wherever we are!

Joshua is growing so fast. His latest trick is waving. He loves to wave hello and goodbye! Such fun. He is pulling himself up and taking steps around furniture, so walking is soon to follow.
