The "Nothing Is Really New In Our World" Post

Yep, it's true. Things are fairly status quo around here. Slowly but surely we are settling into a routine with Tyler's clinic schedule and all the added therapy appointments now that he isn't able to go to school. Tyler is making it one day at a time and feeling well, for the most part. Some days are better than others but that's to be expected. He's a tough kid for sure!

Emmalee had to have her blood tested because Brent and I thought she may be diabetic. Thank goodness everything came back normal and there are no worries. She has, however, fully become a three-year-old. Whoever said "terrible twos" lied. Three is much worse. She is testing her boundaries more and more every day and I am sometimes shocked that I have any hair left! We are hoping to come up with some sort of discipline that clicks with her. Any suggestions??

We are still waiting to get the next hearing evaluation scheduled for Nate. We're coming to terms with the fact that he is likely deaf or at least very hard of hearing. Just like everything, we will take it one step at a time and do our best to get through. If we've learned anything over these past months, it is that we are strong, especially as a family. Plus, learning sign language is something Brent and I have always wanted to do.

So, that's pretty much it from here. We have clinic again tomorrow and we're hoping Tyler feels well enough to have a good weekend!! Thanks to everyone for checking in. We truly appreciate all the love and support we receive!

Good luck with Emma. As you have read on my blog, Jace can be the sweetest thing alive and then a little devil! :) Three is SOOOO hard. Discipline...yeah, we're always switching it up. Time out in his room isn't that effective so we've gone to standing in the corner - it works a little bit better. I just don't think 3 year olds care what you think or do. Best of luck - and don't worry, the hair will grow back! ;)

I just don't know how you do it. But with our little problems I've learned you just do. That is the way it goes. Thanks for sharing. I feel very grateful for a loving heavenly father who walks us through things we would cave in under the weight it brings. Kiss those kiddos they are truly precious and are so lucky to have such incredible parents to be there for them! - love to you, Melanie

Oh the threes...all I can say is it gets easier as they get older! But they're so cute at that age; just plunk a tutu on her and let her dance it all out. Maybe then she'll be too tired to fight over anything. :) Hugs from Denver...we'll be thinking of you all on July 10. K.
