Busy??

I feel like I'm talking to myself, but maybe I am. *shrug*
I guess I'll do a quick update of what's going on with my little family, and HOPE that I get some feedback.
Steve is set for his concert on Monday. He's got the tux, and in fact, since we know someone who is in the tux industry (well, she RENTS tuxes and gowns) she gave us a FABULOUS deal on a cummerbund and a tux shirt. She also, since she is SO wonderfully helpful and AMAZING, gave us a handful of button clips and cuff links. SHE IS AWESOME! Thanks to her, he's going to look spiffy! I'm pretty excited!
Cameron is continuing to do well. He's anxious about going to any more doctor appointments (he has to see his regular pediatrician for a physical since he's taking Ritalin and we need to set up an orthodontist appointment). He's doing well with his therapies, and thanks to one of his therapists (his new OT....the one we LOVE) he's tying his shoes by himself. He's not QUITE proficient with it YET, but he's getting there. Thanks to her little tool, he can feel proud to do it BY HIMSELF! I wish I knew the name of the tying tool, but it holds the "bunny ears" in place so he can work on tying instead of holding AND tying. He has an IEP meeting coming up next week, and his excitement is for a field trip to the zoo and a hike he says they're going on for scouts.
Jake is into EVERYTHING. He pulls everything out of our little hamper that we have full of toys, and then he'll pull the pillows off the couches and chair. Who knew that pillows were SUCH fun toys! He's also babbling more and is using his own type of sign language to communicate with us. When he wants food, he'll bang his hand against his mouth or smack his lips together. If he wants to nurse (which, YES, I'm still doing...) he'll come over to me and LIFT up my shirt. Thanks, son! ;)
And me? I'm just cleaning house, doing laundry, chasing a baby, and running errands. Nothing spectacular, but hey, I'm NOT complaining! I am SO blessed that my family is healthy, my kids are safe and happy, and we have a job.

You're not talking to yourself...I'm just too lazy to comment. :) I pulled up your high school post the other day and Kate said, "Is that you?" to me. HA!! Cracked me up.

Goodonya for keeping up the nursing. Some kids just wean at different times. I have a feeling Jonathan will be the one letting me know when he's ready to quit and not the other way around. I'm so relieved that things are going well for Cameron. It can be extremely stressful on a family when doctors are wrong about everything.. which you know. ;P
