Update since last time- May 30, 2014
Ok it's been a while since I posted. Things have been pretty busy with 3 kids. 8 months ago today, our little peanut was born way too early at 16 weeks 4 days. It was a little boy, Oscar William Owens, born Sept. 30, 2013 at 12:04am weighing 5oz and was 7.5 inches long. We had him cremated and have him in his own special box.
In November we celebrated Louie's first birthday. It was a small party at McDonalds with some family. Louie has come a long way and has since started walking. He is still delayed, has speech troubles, troubles with his epilepsy, and still gets sick easily. His sensory problems are a big deal, and even keep him from enjoying swimming like his sisters enjoy doing. He is in Speech therapy and feeding therapy as well as early intervention. He is currently on a break from occupational therapy and for now has graduated from physical therapy.
In March we celebrated Kaya's 3rd birthday with a Mickey Mouse/ Minnie Mouse theme. We also celebrated at McDonald's since the weather was crazy and chilly and we got snow up into April!! I cannot believe she is 3 already, time just flies. She also started and finished a home based preschool, where she went to the center twice a week on the bus. Next school year she will do the school based and go half days, 5 days a week. She is looking forward to it a lot. This summer she wants to go swimming a lot and camp and enjoy our golf cart we just got. She is currently loving Mickey and Minnie mouse, Bubble guppies, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Sophia the first, anything to do with coloring and crafts, and getting into trouble like 3 year olds do.
Just this month we celebrated Bella's 4th Birthday. She too had a Mickey/Minnie theme, but we got to celebrate at the park, and mommy decided to go all out for this one. I made signs, special food, balloons and everything. I will be making a separate post on this. Bella was also in the home based program with Kaya and will be joining her in the school based program next year with the county, unless we happen to move like we want to do, then hopefully we will be in Harrison and they can go to preschool at the school. Bella is into the same things Kaya is and is also looking forward to swimming and camping this summer. We are hoping to take a camping trip to Tennessee this summer. For Bella's birthday weekend we went camping.
We also have went to Stricker's Grove, which is a little local amusement park. The girls loved the rides and had a blast, Louie not so much. He only enjoyed the train ride.
