My camera...

So ever since we started packing from our house in Coolidge, I have been missing a peice to my camera. The charger or the memory card or the camera itself. Needless to say I havent taken many pictures in the last 5 months! Slacker I know. I will FIND all peices to my camera and start taking pictures. I have lots to show the house, the kids, the NEW family car, our improved doggy (trained).

Sight, Smell, Touch, Hear

These are all senses. For Hunter his sences work a little different than ours. Here is the definition from Wiki Sensory Processing Disorder or SPD is a neurological disorder causing difficulties with processing information from the five senses (vision, auditory, touch, olfaction, and taste), the sense of movement (vestibular system), and/or the positional sense (proprioception). For those with SPD, sensory information is sensed, but perceived abnormally. Unlike blindness or deafness, sensory information is received by people with SPD; the difference is that information is processed by the brain in an unusual way that may cause distress or confusion.
SPD is its own diagnosis, but it can be linked to other neurological conditions, including
autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit disorder, dyslexia, Developmental Dyspraxia, Tourette syndrome, multiple sclerosis, and speech delays, among many others. The meaning of SPD falls under the DSM-IV criteria for Asperger syndrome. [1]. There is no known cure; however, there are many treatments available. This can affect
daily functioning
social and family relationships
behavioral challenges
regulating emotions
We are working with a developmental pediatrican and occupational therapist to help Hunter cope. With great doctors and a great son like Hunter with the will to please and desire to learn Hunter will do great and thrive! I will keep everyone up to date on his progress.

Jaycie is 10 months old!

Jaycie turned 10 months. She was 15lbs 5oz and 25 inches long. She still has a baldy head and no teethers!

No one ever told Jaycie she was a preemie and born 9 weeks to soon. She is crawling and sitting and pulling herself to stand and standing unassisted. She is saying mama and dada... errr oh kay just saying dada and mama is more like... a scream but I know who she is calling when she screams... ME! Thats right MAMA!

Healthwise Jaycie is doing good. She doesnt have a follow up on her Kidney reflux until next month but she is still taking her daily antibiotic and we havent had any symptoms so... We are thinking its keeping UTI's at bay. She still cant tolerate baby foods. Breastmilk, formula fine... but her tummy doesnt agree with foods. We are giving her until 9 months adjusted (next month) and then we are going to see a GI specialist about it. She has BHS (breath holding spells) where she gets hurt, frustrated, sad ect ect. Lets out a cry and holds her breath turns blue/gray/white and sometimes passes out and comes around but sleeps for about 10-15 mins after. We are just starting to look deeper into this to make sure its nothing cardiac because she does have a cardiac issue history... we will see!

My what a month this has been. Alexis has started school, Hunter finally has a treatment plan, Tate is getting potty trained, Jaycie turning 10 months old, Us moving out of our Coolidge house, Moving in with Dan and Nancy (inlaws), moving out, and moving in OUR NEW HOUSE! We couldnt have done this without FAMILY! With this move we will be closer to our city lives (School, Work, Dr's, Sports) With this move we had to move out of the same neighborhood as my parents and my brother and dawn and nephews. BUT with how much we love each other we wont let a few zip codes get in the way!
