Chit Chat

We've all had a great week. Last weekend we went to Long Grove and checked out all the shops. The day before we got Addy a Baby Bjorn so she didn't have to always be in her stroller. She's not quite big enough to be in a regular stroller and she gets ticked in the pram at times. She loves the Baby Bjorn. She gets to check everything out and be carried which she loves of course. Long Grove was fun. My favorite was the Apple Haus. Apple cider, apple treats, etc. Last Sunday we managed to hang out in our room all day. We watched a couple movies and snuggled with Addison. It was nice to have her all to ourselves.

Work was pretty busy this past week for us. I have a new team that's being put together along with a couple new accounts that I'll be managing. It's exciting to be given more responsibilities at work.

We had our big appointment with Early Intervention on Friday. The Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist and the Speech Language Pathologist all recommended that Addison needs PT, OT and SLP weekly. PT and OT were very impressed with Addison's advancements since the last time they saw her. All of their reports indicated that Addison is displaying actions of a one month old however after seeing her they think she's definitely moving in the right direction. We're excited to get things going with all of her therapies. It isn't called 'early intervention' for nothing.

Today we had a BBQ with some of our greatest friends. Trish, Jenny, Larry, Britton, Matthew, Kevin, Beverly, Katie, Laura, Norma and Jessica all came to snack on some chicken, pasta and lots of treats. We spent most of our day chattin and playing Rock Band on Playstation. It was a lot of fun. It was nice to get together with everyone after the year we've had. It was awesome having Beverly come see our house, us and Addy. She let us know that Addy looks fantastic which we definitely agree.

Addy will be getting her g-tube changed this week to a larger size. We'll learn how to do it as well so we don't have to go to the hospital if it were to fall out or when she needs a bigger one.

I think that's about it. Here are some fun pictures from our BBQ today!
