Salem's first tutoring with Tonya went well. She tested her and there are definite issues with rhyming and some of her letters but she already made some progress today. I am SO excited.
Dorothy and Whitney - I do have that book. I bought that after Deidre Salmon with the Providence Classical Academy spoke at MOPS but never did anything with it I am ashamed to say. I don't want to overwhelm her but I definitely want to work on it this summer. Right now I don't think she's ready and again I don't want to overwhelm her.
Speaking of kiddos and school I am almost 100% certain Raina is no where near ready socially or speech wise to go to PreK in the fall. She turns 4 in May. So I am going to "red shirt" her. I kinda hope she qualifies for Head Start due to her speech issues. She goes to the speech lab 2 days a week for 2 hours. If she went daily she'd get more speech. She's just now the past two weeks gone in and not screamed and cried. This morning was tenuous but she did good. She's talking up a storm but not at the age appropriate level. So that give me great hope.
I know Salem's speech articulation issues are Noonan Syndrome related and Raina doesn't have NS but still it's hard not to get frustrated at having to be a therapy mom for the second time around.
WLS Related: I am still taking my Nexium MUPPS but still getting nauseated. I can get my liquids in but sometimes it's hard. Tomorrow I am supposed to started blended foods and very soft foods - cottage cheese, soft scrambled eggs, fat free refried beans etc. I am excited but nervous. I haven't thrown up but I am still quite nauseous. I was very excited to try the eggs but have read 3 people this week throw up when they tried them so I may wait. The nausea will all go away as my tummy continues to heal but still.
I also walked a mile tonight on my treadmill! YEAH!! :) My goal is to walk 30 minutes in the morning and an hour in the evening on M-W-F and walk at ACU on T/TH morning. I didn't this morning because Salem had a Dr.'s appointment - poor baby has a sinus infection.
