Sorry I haven't written for a while. There is so much going on and with all the snow and bad weather, it is hard to get everything done when I wanted too. Also every time I mention that Ada had been sleeping well, next thing you know, she started waking up at 4 am. So, we have been struggled with her sleeping. I got new prescription for her to help her sleep. As soon as the medicine gets into her system, she looks so sleepy. We put her to bed and 4-5 hours later, she was up and want to get out of bed. Mom did not get much sleep either. So we increase the med only to find her to be sleepy during the day. But, keep my finger cross, she had been sleeping well without any medicine for a few night now.
We went back to see Speech Pathologist, finally. She was pleased with the way Ada can pick up the picture of the Cheerios from the board and gives it to us. We hope that later on she can learn to pick up others pictures of things that she wants and let us know. So far, so good. The therapist also put Ada in front of the computer and played some game. The Red button was connected so Ada can push it instead of using the mouse. It is not easy and she looked back at me and tried to get away but she did finished 3 games so we are going to purchase the game for her soon.
She also continue to walk around the house and we let go of the walker so she can learn how to balance herself (we still walk behind her). Hopefully it will be warm soon so we can go outside more.
I think Ada has a few basic needs; eat sleep and change. So far she is able to let us know what she wants and that has made her very happy.
She lets me kiss her a lot more and she also kisses me back. I am so long for that. She also makes longer eye contact and pay more attention when we talk to her or play with her.
Mom need to catch up on her sleep and her works. Dad is still out of town. Ada and the dogs miss him a lot. LOL

Hi Ponsawani,

So good to hear about the kisses, the ID of the cheerios picture and giving it to you, etc. I love her picture where she is smiling!!! Her hair is so long now!!!!!!!!! Beautiful! Sorry about not enough sleep..but hopefully the new meds will work. I am glad the Speech Pathologist was pleased with the progress! Great sign! Sorry I have not been so involved...Haiti has consumed our time. How much is the game? I like the fact of letting the walker go so that she can learn how to balance herself! lots of great news! Hugs, F&M
