Whew! We had a busy day today!
It started out pretty early (like every day lately) around 7:00. I fed the kids, got a load of wash in finally, and cleaned up a bit because I had an appointment to set Hanna up with Special Services at Home. We qualify for the program and decided that we would use it for respite services. The awesome thing, and only reason why we're doing it, is that my mom is a respite worker! She will be able to take Hanna, or come over probably 4 hours a week to "relieve" us. :) We don't need relief at all, but my mom will work with her in all different ways to help with her development. My mom would do it just to spend time with her, but as a bonus will even make money doing it. Awesome!! I'm excited to see what she does with her!
Right now we're on a waiting list, so I'll update on that when I know more.
Anyway, after that appointment, I called our family doctor to schedule an appointment for Hailey, for a weigh-in. I used to work there, and know the receptionist, and she told me to go right in because the waiting room was empty. I woke up Matt to stay with the girls and took Hailey into town. Dr. D was happy with her weight at 11 lbs 5oz. Chunky Monkey!
Here she is doing her exercise for the day!
Wow, that's hard work!
We also got in the mail, Hanna's new helmet! She needs one to go on the bike and in the bike trailer, and there's none that fit her little head.
SO, my friend Jenn told me about this helmet that she was thinking about buying for her daughter. I thought it was perfect, and was worth a shot. It's still a bit too big, even after I took a needle and thread to the elastic on the back, but it'll work with a little more rigging.
Gracie wanted to sport her helmet too, since I made Hanna put hers on for a picture.
So we wont need to make her a little coconut helmet this year after all! Thanks Jenn!!
