Hayden's Evaluation

Hayden's eval was today for his speech and cognitive development...It went good...Could have gone better I think...They said he's NOT eligible for services, but he does have some delays...He just doesn't have enough delays to get help. I'm kind of irritated. They said if he's still talking the same when he's closer to 4, to bring him back for testing again. But really, why wouldn't they want to fix his minor delays instead of waiting to see if they turn into something more?

I know I have a smart kiddo, it WAS nice to be told, especially since we are all bias since we know him and are related to him! He did SOOOO good man. I can't believe it. He knew a lot of stuff that I have been working with him on, but for me-he sometimes gets things mixed up! It was great to hear other people tell him how smart he was!

Oh and the delays were in speech and cognitive development, by the way--so both of the areas that were talked about at the screening.

So...Now the waiting game...Also, if/when I fix his ear, maybe that will help...

Fun, Exciting Weekend!

Aww...We were living the life! LOL! We went out to the Gold Canyon Golf Resort last night w/ our neighbors-Duke and Julie. Man--seriously--everyone who goes there has money! So, for a night-we had money! It was soooo nice! It's like one of the top golf resorts in the country apparently. We brought our own dinner-Julie is an AMAZING cook! And brought a cooler full of beer and soda! So, we ate in Duke and Julie's room and then went to the bar! Clint and I felt old! Duke and Julie are in their 40's , but man-they can party like they are our age. We were sooo tired and they were still going! We had a blast though! And we had breakfast buffet there this morning! SO GOOD! And the weird thing of the morning was...I ran into one my friends and her family there-they were eating breakfast there!!! Aww...I don't want to be back in reality...

Fast week!

What a quick week that was!!!! Whew! Quick update! Hayden's screening for his development was on Wednesday--we are concerned w/ articulation, so we got him screened. His evaluation is on the 26th for his cognitive and speech development. He failed his right hearing test, due to fluid in there-which would explain all the "Huh, what'd you say Mama?" and the "I can't hear you!" He's got a dr appt on Monday-to talk about that! Have a great weekend and Happy Valentines Day!!! Be safe!!!

A new week!

Hopefully this week goes better than the last! Starting it off still sick though--which sucks--but oh well, right?! But I have a new idea...Hear me out now...And then I want to know what you think, please...

Remember when I was thinking about acupuncture? What about a healing?! My friends aunt is in the "business"...And is co owner of a healing center. I'm thinking of trying it out! Seriously-I wonder if it would do anything...It's about the same price as acupuncture--so it's not like I'd be spending anymore money than I was already planning! Let me know what you think!
