Some delays later
It's been a busy time. After being out of the house in a hotel for a night (from the power outage), Matt left on a business trip. It was a 10 day tour of Japan. He had a very productive time.
Grandma and Grandpa Schnaderbeck came to Methuen to stay and help with Alexis and Jessica schedules. It was a big help to have extra hands here with me. Matt only got to see them for about 4 hours.
This past week has been very busy -- Jessica is starting the transition process from Early Intervention to Preschool. She'll turn 2yrs 9months on April 4th, which seems hard to believe! She is still our little baby. But it's good, we are working on getting her more language practice and seeing specialists at Children's to help her learn to talk.
Alexis has been very busy, obviously school is always very busy. Then on Thursday, Alexis and Dad went to Alexis' dentist appointment in Boston. She needs to brush and floss more often, I guess we'll have to put it into her calendar system. Their trip was successful, but a little eventful. Alexis' g-tube came out at the hospital - which is ok, they should have replacements, but contacting and finding the right department to get the replacement would have been a hassle. So, Matt got the Dentist to move quickly and did a g-tube swap out at Perkins (Alexis' school has a spare one). Of course, now that I type that, I guess they don't have a spare one now - so I should remember to send one in. Maybe when my mom reads that, she can remind me to do it. :-)
I posted a video of our messy house but of Jessica putting away the silverware. Please note that she's a ham for the camera (and somewhat distracted). She likes helping around the house. She can't see into the draw and thus can't sort the silverware into the right spaces, but otherwise, she is very helpful and very proud of herself.
She was also distracted by daddy with Alexis changing clothes this morning. Very much my baby.
Take care, sorry for the delay in posting.
