Lately in Joy’s Life

Joy enjoys “practicing” like sister.    I evidently use these a lot because someone is copying me!2014-09-24 sept 24 0052014-09-25 sept 24 001

Animal Ball – you have to say an animal and the sound they make.  Joy loves this game!

Sister came home for a quick trip from college.  Joy was so happy to spend time with her, and SO SAD to see her leave.

ENT

We meet our new ENT today.  The Audiologist attempted a hearing test.  And while it wasn’t as extensive as Houston’s was, she got almost normal results.  So I was glad about that. She was successful with getting her tympanograms.  They showed one tube out and one tube in place.   The doctor took a peek and both tubes were in the ear canals.  She went ahead and took those out.  But that means that her one ear drum has a hole in it.  They’ll monitor that for now.  Excited about the hearing results! She said it’s because the ear is still open.

Joy’s Fun Weekend

Our family spent the weekend at the Center for Courageous Kids.  We had so much fun!

Settling into our room                              Joy found her name – another camper was named Joy!

Life with Joy

Two things Joy found in my closet – an old watch and a Santa hat!  Two loves for Joy!

Mama is starting to get ready for winter!  Having fun with the box afterward the coat is out!
