Here Comes the Sun

Not only has the weather here gotten so lovely lately but I'm seeing the silver lining all around me. I'm so thankful for the kind words and encouragement. My friend tells me it's only natural to have these overwhelming feelings and even more so when you're a single mom and sleep deprived. My dear girl is finally feeling better. I had no problem getting her to bed and she slept through the night without major coughing. YEA! I'm all about the routines but I changed it up a bit yesterday and tried it again tonight and it seems to work. So even if I want to get her asleep before 8 p.m., I need to put her down closer to 7:30. We watched Jack's Big Music Show or Yo Gabba Gabba then put on our pjs, read some books (her faves are Pat the Bunny, The Very Busy Spider and Go Dog Go!), say our prayers and go to bed. I put her down at 7:20 and she was asleep by 7:30. YEA!

I could tell that she was feeling better because she was bopping her head this morning to the radio when she woke up (my child loves Lady Gaga and Black Eyed Peas). When she was laying on my bed waiting for me to finish getting ready I hear her little voice sing "Mama, mama" when the line said, "I got it from my mama. I got it from my mama." She's starting to imitate me when I do certain things like lick my fingers when turning a stuck page. It's funny.

We went to the eye doctor today and we got good glasses at least for six months. YEA!
Monday, Grace gets her renal scan and Friday her hearing test. We don't see the genecticist until March. If she does indeed have the Triple X syndrome, it could be our ticket into the Ready Set Start program earlier than we expected. That's a good thing. Life is good and I'm finally breathing again peacefully.
