Been slacking on the blogging this week...

We've been super busy. Jack's playgroup was Tuesday, and he had loads of fun. He didn't want to leave, and threw a fit while I was walking out holding my angry child. I was asked to join some of the mommies and kids for lunch but didn't due to Jack's tantrum - hoping I can join them next time. Jack's friend Jada came over to play Wednesday, so that was fun as usual.

Jack had his second hearing eval on Thursday. I remain unconcerned about his hearing, but they still can't rule out a mild hearing loss since he's bored with their "game" to test his hearing. She did say that he can understand/hear normal speech, so even if he has a mild hearing loss that should not affect his speech development at this time. My brother, on Spring Break from law school, came over that afternoon. We had Philly Cheesesteaks just for him. We were lucky to get them cooked, since we lost our power for about an hour due to a thunderstorm. Of course, it doesn't necessarily take a storm for our power to go out, a frustration, but at least this time there was wind and rain related to the outage.

It was a beautiful day today, so we took Jack and Annie on the greenway today. It was fun, even though we didn't even go 1/4 mile because well, Jack was too fascinated with the bridge. Which unfortunately had been vandalized. Our small town of about 10,000 actually has this fantastic greenway, and some taxpayer/taxpayer's child decided to vandalize. Classy, real classy. Great consideration for others - and for yourself.

We had a big lunch today - Addam went to Chef's with some folks from work, and brought me back a burger around 1:45pm - so we didn't make big plans for dinner. Instead, Addam made Oreo blizzards for dinner (yes, we're bad). Jack had PB&J.

Anyway, that's the recap for this week. Still lovin' the new ride. Here's a photo of Jack I've been meaning to post for quite a while:

PHOTO DELETED

Life is pretty good when you've got crayons and a silly hat (it's a swim/sun hat. In March). I just love his expression here. And the fact that he's even wearing a hat - he normally hates hats, so it's rare to see him wear one for more than a minute. I think he wore this one for a good 30 minutes!

What more can he ask for? crayons, paper, and a hat?? i know what you mean about the little "games" the evaluators play. my younger son had to go see a speech evaluator and after she played her little "game" for a while, he was like, "what's next!"
