Weekly Wrap-up: Snowy Day Fun

The past 2 weeks have again been crazy for us.  We have had many appointments (and the begining of Sassy's transition) to get out of the way and I am glad to say that we will finally be able to be back on our regular schedule as of next week!  (yippie!)  Here are some of the activities we have done over the past 2 weeks.

For Christmas the kids got a TON of art supplies and we have started to dig in and play with them.  One of our favorite messy activities was finger painting.

Peanut had fun paining the table as well.

Sassy enjoyed fitting her 2 little hands into the container of pain and making hand prints.
Sassy recently celebrated her 3rd birthday.  One of her presents was a porcelain ladybug tea set.  Since Sassy realized mommy would put juice or water in the tea kettle for them to pour and drink, we have spent alot of time having tea party's with each other.  Last week we had Princess and Bobo over and we had a dress up tea party.  Princess dressed up like...well, a princess.  Sassy decided that she wanted to be a firefighter and Peanut decided to be a chicken.

After a few minutes Bobo realized what the kids were doing and  jumped right in with a tea cup.

Our most favorite activity has been playing with our winter sensory bin.  I found fake snow on clearance from Target that I put in the bin as well as white feathers (Peanuts favorite), homemade snowmen (left over from a few Christmases ago), white craft pom poms and 2 plastic cups for scooping and pouring.

Eventually Sassy thought it would be fun to jump right in to the bin and Peanut took it upon himself to dump a cup of fake snow on Sassy's head. (As a helpful side note...fake snow is not easy to get out of fine, long hair)
Sassy in sensory heaven.
Along with our activities we have been getting used to our new work boxes, going to indoor playgrounds, and having additional play dates.  We had a transition meeting with the school system to get her evaluated.  My hubby and I decided that we do not plan to utilize services at all, but would like a therapeutic and education evaluation done with Sassy to help us identify what we may need to focus on, and what educational level Sassy is at for curriculum planning.

I a about to include Sassy into our ABA account through CARD's Skills program.  We loved Sassy's ABA therapist (Miss Cool) so much that we plan to hire her to come in as a consult to guide us through the Skills program for both children.

Peanut had a Naturopath visit this week which went very well.  e changed his probiotic to help with some minor tummy issues and we are starting him on l-theanine to see if it will help calm him and help him to focus a little more.

Today the kids both had their first dentist appointment.  They did very well, and I was so proud of them.  The highlight of my day was when Peanut was in the dental chair and he says, "Excuse me ma'am, can you please move the TV screen closer so I can see it more?"  I honestly looked around the room in amazement.  Was that my child who just said that?!  What a miracle!

I am in the process of a re-design for the blog.  I'm hoping to make it easier to navigate.  I'm also hoping to get started on doing a few reviews.  I'm excited to get this going!

So that's what we have done over the last 2 weeks.  How about you?

God Bless!!
