Toddler bed time

Filed under: Kenzie — Norris @ 11:12 pm

Today we converted Mackenzie’s bed to a toddler bed… and put up a gate at her door. Nap time worked amazingly well. Tonight she decided to take a book to bed with her. We’ll see how this first night goes… (fingers crossed).

Thursday outing….

Filed under: Kenzie — Cheri @ 5:17 pm

Have been taking Mackenzie to a class at the hospital called “Kidz Talk”, this was our second week of 8 weeks total. She didn’t have any problem with my leaving the room today, and when it was over the therapist brought her out and I was rewarded with an enthusiastic MAMA and GIANT HUG!

She has a new friend Kasia (hope I spell that correctly) who is 3 and very cute! We might have a play date next week outside of the class for them, they play together really well!

Last week she learned some sounds that were not new, but she has been using them a lot in the past week – especially the sound a snake makes – SSSSSSSSSSSS. This week, we will see what she picked up and we have our homework sounds for the week to practice.

New Year’s Eve….

Filed under: Kenzie — Cheri @ 10:29 pm

I was sitting on the couch talking to Norris, when our little one came running into the room screaming MAMA over and over again…I told her she should say Daddy and give him a hug, and she actually did it!

She turned, smiled said “Dad dee” and ran over and gave him a big hug – I think that made his year! (She hasn’t said that in a very long time and never that clearly.)

Here’s hoping to more “Dad dee” instead of all “Mama” this year!

Happy New Year everyone!
