Three Times A Charm

Ellie completed her first week/third day at New School. Today there was no crying or even power naps (though a power nap attempt was made right at the end of her day there around quarter to noon).

She replaced these with lots of attentive gazes and smiles and laughs. She had her new PT today who tried her successfully in a bolster sitter. It makes Ellie work her trunk will sitting. Ellie did amazing. She was introduced to many other new things today and I am happy to say that she took them all in with quiet attention.

She did get tired out. It's still all new, it's still a bit over stimulating. But she was happy. She was happy when she woke up from her nap and happy when I lay her down to sleep.

A happy kid makes for a happy mom, don't ya think?

It's always fun getting new therapists to see what ideas and strategies they will use. Way to go Ellie!

I am smiling ear to ear. I so know the trepidation of starting a new school or therapy or BOTH! Congratulations to Miss Ellie for such a wonderful first few days. I can't wait to hear more about school! !!

We are very happy that Ellie likes her new school. She deserves to have the opportunities all little girls have. Love Granpa Paddy and Granny Lucan/Dundrum.
