What is it about fruit snacks?  Joy adores them!

Our scratching update:  School has asked that she wears gloves on her hands till she stops the scratching.  I hope that’ll help.

Joy’s Family Tree

made today in preschool- I love it!

Joys Family Tree 001

Sweet Joy

Love this!  Joy’s favorite thing to do in Speech is “Ring A Round A Rosie.”  Bella was in the room, so she insisted we include Bell.  She pushed her chair and the therapist and I completed the circle.  Very cute!IMG_7680 IMG_7625 IMG_7626


Just love these two pictures – what a big girl, working so hard.

More Pictures

Joy has decided that Blue’s Clues is amazing!  She loves Steve!  And she has made up a sign for “Blue’s Clues” – two fists out in front, open and close in rapid succession.

We are having a little struggle with Joy.  When she gets overly tired or over-stimulated, she scratches and it really hurts!  She usually draws blood.  Usually it only happens at home, but she got a little boy at school today.  Nothing that I’ve tried so far has helped her understand that she is hurting people.  We’ve tried talking, explaining, using a mean voice to say NO!, time out – but when she’s tired or over stimmed, she’s not thinking -  just reacting to these crazy feelings in her body.  Have to figure this out – and hopefully quick!

  I have entitled this one “Part!”  I think she looks just like I envision Moses :) IMG_7596

Love my happy girl!

First Day of School

It went really, really well!  She was adorable!  She only cried for a minute when we left her.  She had a great day!
