Not so happy kids....


This picture is so funny to me because no one wanted to have it taken. I like the way it is so real. Macey is throwing a fit because she wants down. Parker is trying to look at me for the picture but is eyeing Macey and Molly is feeling too cool for the picture. It cracked me up. I think it's one I'll blow up and put on the mantle, lol. :)

Small things


Why is it that Macey (age 19 mos) mostly only wants small things to play with. Things that she is not really old enough to play with. My mom just gave me this huge standing jewelry box. It's really nice and will hold more jewelry than I even own. My worry is that Macey is going to enjoy opening the drawers and taking out my jewelry. She is such a stinker.

I can barely keep up with her getting into things. I childproof pretty well but she is getting tall enough to open doors and drawers. I latch what I can but somethings are hard to childproof. Poor Parker, she loves to get into everything in his room. Molly pretty much keeps her out but when she gets in.....look out. She loves taking out her nail polish and makeup. Lets not even get started with her love of anything to write with. That girl loves to color.

She is trouble but I am in love with her. (At the moment she is taking all the pillows off my bed)

Bloomin


The kids are just doing so great lately! Parker is asking appropriate questions and playing with Macey. Macey is saying lots of new words and really loves her brother. Sometimes she puts her head on him and says "Love". Yesterday we went to the Discovery museum. Macey couldn't do much last time but she had a great time this time. She played with all the toys and loved the play store with cash register and play food. She even met a little boy her same age and kept calling him a baby. So cute. Molly is in Santa Barbara with her aunt and cousins. She keeps calling me and telling me all the fun things they are doing. I'm glad she is having fun but I miss her. Right when she gets home, the next day she leaves for camp for 4 days. Waaa!

This isn't my pic I posted but I wanted a pic of sunflowers. I planted a bunch and only got one. It didn't grow very big and only lasted a week or so. These are my dream sunflowers. I don't think the weather cooperated this year.

Update






Right now I'm sitting on the bed typing while Macey is playing with a box of barettes. She loves taking things out and then putting them in.

Things have been pretty good lately. Well, except for the weather which is muggy and dreary, even rain.

Parker had a great time in summer school. It was only a month long but he loved it. He was sad it was over. The teachers there were so nice to him. Right now he is wishing school was in sesson. He doesn't like spending the day with Macey. We've been doing our best and he is mostly happy though.

Molly is doing good. She is being a pre-teen, lol. Next month she will be a teen. She has been such a big help to me. Plus she is good company. I'm so glad I have her around. It's been less and less lately. She is getting to the age where friends come first.

Macey is a doll but a fiesty one. She is very smart and very busy. She keeps me hopping. I just love dressing her and teaching her new things. She says Mommy now to get my attention and it's adorable. I am afraid for the terrible 2s, especially since it's already happening.

This post may be messed up since I'm trying to type near a toddler.

Bobby and I are doing good. We both just had birthdays.

My Mom is staying at my sisters right now and is really happy. She is so wonderful to her. Mom is walking well with her walker and will be going home soon. I'm so happy for her.

Tired...

I have been so tired lately. I'm feeling like I need a break. My mom is staying with us because she broke her him and I'm taking care of her till she can walk better. She is as helpful as she can be but it's still a lot when you have 3 kids. I feel overwhelmed a lot of the time but I don't want her to feel that. I hope she gets better soon so I can get back to my life. It's not her fault at all, I just have too much on my plate. I think i need to let out a big sigh..............

I haven't gotten many breaks, and none alone with Bobby. To top that off, our respite worker had knees surgery and can't take Parker until some time next week.

I guess I'm just going to have to make the best of the summer and try and go to bed earlier.

A good picture



Finally I got a picture of Parker smiling. He moves so much that it's hard to get a straight on picture. I don't know if it's because he has autism or he just doesn't like to stand still for pictures. He said a big cheese when dh took that one. I wish Molly had been in it, but she was at Sunday school. Macey and I were getting ready for regular church. Parker only likes church when Macey doesn't go, lol. I just love that guy.

My friendly guy

I am so lucky that Parker is such a friendly guy. He just loves some people. Right now he is so affectionate with the lunch ladies at his school. He always gives them a hug. One of them saw him after school and hugged him. She told me he was such a sweet guy, I said I know it. I should have told her that he is not often that affectinate with women and that she must be special. He does like men better a lot of times. Lots of people tell me how sweet he is and he really is. I love my little guy.

Another update

I've been thinking a lot about my buddy lately. Parker has really changed so much over the years. Lately I've been seeing so much progress. The other day I was going to teach him some sounds in the alphabet, but he knew them all already. Time to start practicing with easy books to read. I'm so proud of him. He's also been interacting with his baby sister a lot. He plays with her and even teases her with her blankie. I think she is becoming a little girl to him instead of just a baby.

It is so cute to watch Macey light up when she interacts with Parker. She loves her big brother and has came to love Barney just like he did. We've been watching a lot of that around here. Oh well, I guess they learn good things from it.

Parker is also getting better at trying new foods. He will at least take a lick or small bite of something. He is also eating toast and bagels at school. That makes me so happy.

His IEP is coming up and I always worry that he isn't getting the right services. Sometimes I'm not even sure what he should be getting. I know he is relatively happy and progressing though. I may have to have his behavorist observe the class again so I can see how he's doing. He has been crankier in class lately so I hope nothings wrong. I'm keeping my eye on it. I also have to talk to them about his behaviour plan. They have been giving him time outs during recess and we have to talk about that.

Enough about IEPs. They stress me out.

Molly is doing good. Cheerleading is almost over, whew. It takes up a lot of time but it sure made her happy.

Macey is getting more verbal and kind of fiesty, lol. What happened to my cuddly baby. She is just a doll though. I think she is the cutest thing ever. I am so blessed to have her.

Well, that's about it. Today I am laying in bed feeling cruddy. I tried my computer and low and behold I get wifi in here. Yay! Maybe I can update more often now.

February update!

Hi all. Long time no post, lol.

In the past month or so a lot has went on. Macey turned 1. Parker turned 8. Molly became and cheerleader and has her first boyfriend. It's been crazy but good.

I've missed blogging and updating pictures. I need to get busy. There hasn't been a lot new with Parker. I wish I had something to share. He's even more obsessed with movies, if thats a change, lol.

I'll update more later. My computer is acting up.
