Update (Long)

Dominiq had his followup yesterday on his ears. The infection is all gone, thank goodness! So his hearing test is scheduled for next Friday, March 6 at 9:30. I have a call in to the speech therapist to get that set up also. He has started saying mom-a and has said da-da and dad-e. So he is improving. I am hoping everything is fine with his ears and that a few sessions will be all he needs.

Eriq started soccer practice again this week. There are 4 of the same kids on the team, including Eriq. They are keeping their team name but getting new uniforms. He lost a tooth about a week or so ago, top left. His right is lose but not lose enough to pull yet. He said it was bothering him last night. I had him lay in my lap so I could wiggle it some. LOL!

Kelley signed up for unemployment. He talked to head guy on a couple of jobs last week and should be hearing from him very soon on work. We were having such a hard time making it before when he was working, I don't know how we have made it this far without him working. Thanks to God and my mom, I know! If he goes to work in Oklahoma City, we have friends he will be able to stay with there. So it will make it a bit easier.

I have been doing pretty well on my weight loss. My sister in law and I joined the All American in Owasso last night! I am so looking forward to getting back in the habit of using the elliptical machine!! I know Iam crazy, but I love those! I have managed to lose 8 lbs this month, which I am so happy with. Now that I will be working out, should really help it go faster.

I have managed to get a pic a day most of the time for my Project 365! I have been making my own Week Of cards for it by stamping that and glimmer misting the cards. I have about 20 colors, so I can do a lot of variation! I did my first layout with a pic of Kelley and I a few nights ago using this months kit from Studio Calico. I think it turned out cute and will post it soon!

Dominiq's 2 yr Check

Ok, so I got this and the hearing screening scheduled yesterday. His hearing test was originally scheduled for next Tuesday at 9:30. Until Kelley took him to the Dr this morning for his 2 yr check up. Dominiq has a double ear infection!! I don't understand it. Eriq would get fevers and act cranky when he had his. Dominiq just doesn't eat as much and digs at his ears, which is why I wanted to get him in and get them checked. Now he is on Zithromax for 5 days. The Dr was very surprised he didn't qualify for the Soonerstart program. She is checking into a few things and who will take our insurance. His hearing test is going to be rescheduled now. I will update as we go...

Dominiq's Evaluation

Just to update on Dominiq's evaluation this morning. The ladies said he is very bright and very cute. LOL! He passed everything except what we worried about-the expressive communication. He scored at a 14 month level being 42% delayed. On the receptive, him understanding others, he scored at a 29 month level. With him only scoring 42% delay he does not qualify for the Soonerstart program. Unless something shows up on his hearing test which is scheduled for next Tuesday morning. We are going ahead and scheduling some speech therapy though. If he is delayed on his hearing then he will be accepted into the program and his speech therapy paid for by them. The therapist will work with us though, so we are hoping they don't find anything wrong with his hearing. They also said to have his vision checked at his 2 yr checkup since 1 eye seemed to have less mobility than the other. We don't feel there is anything to worry about on his seeing or hearing, but we will have them checked just to make sure. I will update as we go along.

Happy Birthday Dominiq!!

Happy Birthday to our sweet boy Dominiq! He turns 2 today! In some ways it seems he should be much older! We had a family party on Sunday at our house, not sure if he really knew what was going on! He sure loved the cake though! He even came in to the living room twice yesterday carrying the cake box! Luckily there wasn't much left and it didn't open!
He came into the bathroom on Saturday morning saying momma! He has said something like mom mom mom before when he was upset but this was the first momma. Talk about being excited! LOL! The Soonerstart people come to our house tomorrow morning to do the evaluation on him since he is saying words. The more time I have had to think about it though, I agree that he just isn't ready to talk. We will go ahead with the eval though since it is cheduled and free. I do want to make sure there isn't anything to worry about. I will update on that later!
