DST already....

Well hopefully you all feel better then me today....I love and hate daylight savings time all at once. I love it because it means SPRING...I hate it because it steals sleep and although only an hour I may as well have gone on vacation in Hawaii and taken a red eye to get to work... At least the kids seemed to handle it well...

It was pretty cold all weekend so we really did not do much. Chris took Emma to the pool on Saturday to work on her swimming skills. I think by the time summer starts she'll be very close if not swimming alone. Not so sure we'll make the swim team this year but who knows, I guess we'll just have to see how she does. Tatum should be pretty funny this summer too, I am sure she'll love the pool as long as I am right there with her. I can not believe how stuck to Mom she is...I guess I should enjoy it since she is so darn cute.

We saw the genetics Doctor on Thursday and he was also concerned about her speech, I am not as worried about it as everyone else I know she'll talk eventually. I am going to attend some of her speech therapy for the next few months to see what I can do to help her along, I think we'll have her saying more in no time. Compared to other Williams kids she is not that behind in speech right?

I have to start getting Emma's forms together to register her for kindergarten, wow I can not believe she is going to school this yr. it seems like just yesterday that she was born. I am also thinking about putting in Tatum in a more structured Daycare, I think it would really help her out with her communication skills. The YMCA where Emma goes to pre-school seems to have a really great program for children Tatum's age too. I am thinking that she'll get much more out of that then just being at home one on one with a sitter. Thoughts anyone?

Anyway I have work to get done...I'll try and get some pictures up soon and post more this week. Whitney is coming out to visit her sister on Thursday so hopefully I'll get to catch up with them this weekend. Happy Monday :)

I think the daycare idea sounds great. I have actually said to Scott that I am glad I don't work because of all of Noah's therapy, but that he would excel if we had him in daycare. I worked full time with my girls and I believe being around other kids makes alot of difference. Good luck. Give Whitney my love.

I think daycare sounds good too Lisa. It was really good for Caleb to be around other kids, and that is when his speech really took off. DST! Blah. It is finally catching up with me. Especially this morning when I got up with Chuck at 5, but it really felt like 4. I just couldn't open my eyes. Yawn!!!!

I agree DST stinks on so many levels!!! Okay, in the fall it's okay because we get an hour of extra sleep:)

It is hard to believe that Emma will be a Kindergartener too! Time flies. I too think it would be good for Tate to be exposed to some other kids her age. Abi took off when she started going to pre-school...and she got a lot less clingy to me:) sometimes that's good, sometimes I don't like it so much. I like being wanted once in awhile.

I am hoping that the bracelet for Whitney shows up anyday and I will get it to you. Did her sister have the baby already?

I know what you mean. DST has kicked my tail this week! Poor Daven is struggling too. As far as getting Tatum in a daycare...I have been really fighting with those thoughts too. I wish I had an answer for you...but I can't seem to find an answer for myself.

LOVE YOU!

Being around the other kids in daycare will probably be great for her.
How exciting for Emma, kindergarten, wow! I bet she'll love it!
Take care.

Hello Lisa, I'm glad to hear you had a safe trip and that Whitney was looking well to you (I'm not sure if that is worded right but I hope you know what I mean). I hate DST!!!

What a sweet little girl! It's so hard not to worry about their speech! But from what I've heard it is completely normal for a child with WS to be quite delayed. Lucas is 3 in June and just now beginning to make sounds that might be words. However, Dr. Mervis told us that Lucas was further behind than most with WS.
