Update on Heidi

Sorry it has been so long since my last update, but I wanted to let you know that Project Tikes (the therapists that work with Katy ISD) came out and checked out Heidi and if she is on track. Well first Heidi started walking while we had family in town (of course right??). I called the lady that sets the appointments with Project Tikes and told her Heidi was walking and that I wasn't sure if they still needed to come out. She said it was up to me and she reminded me that it wasn't going to cost me anything (our taxes pay for this program). So, I said what the heck lets just stick with the appointment :o). They came out Wednesday afternoon and asked all these questions about Heidi and what she does. Here is what they came up with... she understands at a 19 month old level, she uses her hands and stuff at 14 month old level (such as holding a crayon with a fist), and she communicates at a 13 month old level. They were telling me that with the communication part that it comes after kids start walking, so that should be coming soon. Heidi is walking more and more each day and becoming more comfortable in her steps. The good news is she passed everything and does not qualify for the program. YAY!

Hailee is doing great in school and learning her letters and the sounds they make. I think she is really wanting to read because she is always asking me to read something for her so she knows what it says. VERY COOL! I am loving this age and can't wait to watch her grow and learn more!

Heidi and her growing...

Today I took Heidi to the doctor for her 15 month check up. It went great! I love our doctor and how understanding he is toward how I feel about things and how he listens and is open to all things. Here is where Heidi stands in regards to the normal measurments... Her height is 29 1/2 inches long (25%), she weighed in at 18 1/2 lbs (-3%... she gained 2 lbs from her 12 month check up), and her head was 45 1/2 cm around (25-50%). She is doing well!

The only thing is she isn't walking yet. I know... I know... all babies are different. Dr. Clarke and I talked about this and he isn't concerned (not yet), but he reccommends that we go to some kind of therapy to see if she just needs some special excerises to strenghten her legs or if there is something more. He said he would rather take care of this early rather then wait. I am totally on board. Katy ISD has these programs that help kids that have special needs and it is all covered by our taxes. So, Dr. Clarke (or someone from the doctor's office) will call and refer us and then we will get a call from the Katy ISD peeps.

Heidi is just a little uneasy on her feet and not so sure about trusting herself. This is my observation and I think this will help her/push her :o).

Heidi is SUPER smart! The girl understands and gets a lot of things. She points at everything wanting to know what it is. I love it! Anyways this is what is going on with Heidi and she is doing great!

A little somethen somethen...

"Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God Almighty,
Who was and is and is to come!"
Revelations 4:8

"You are worthy, O Lord,
To receive glory and honor and power;
For You created all things,
And by Your will they exist and were created."
Revelations 4:11

"Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
To receive power and riches and wisdom,
And strength and honor and glory and blessing!"
Revelations 5:12

I think these are some of the most beautiful verses EVER! They are so true and glorious.
