News Roundup

I ordered a new camera. Allen and I were both upset about the loss of the camera. We were both upset about the money, but I was more bothered by only having a crappy camera to use. I ordered a more recent version of my old camera (hey! They don't sell the version I had anymore. I HAD to upgrade.) I'm feeling less hostile towards my new sewing machine now. And, the new camera is really great. I love it.

Christopher was evaluated for speech this morning. He now has a standing appointment on Friday mornings for a bit of help.

Ashlyn has been crossing her left eye. It started about 8 weeks ago, and she was closing that eye for part of the day as well. It was becoming more frequent. She went to an opthamologist last week. She is now the proud owner of a pair of pink glasses. She also has an eye patch to wear for part of the day. It fits over the glasses lens of her good eye, to get her other eye to work better.

So glad you took Christopher in... You are such a GREAT mom!! I love you.

I had a patch too. I had to wear it when I was five. I hated the stupid thing, but it worked. I don't remember watching tv alot growing up, just when I had the patch. I remember getting off the bus and my mom handing me my patch. I would take it off and she would tempt me with cartoons. I saw many Smurfs with one eye.

Mikey has been in speech for just a simple speech delay since he was 2. It has been great!

Ashlyn looks beautiful in her new glasses!

Ashlyn does look beautiful!
Hopefully, like Jamie, it will be a temporary thing. I think a little girl I used to babysit for had the same problem and it went away too.

She looks so much like Allen! She is a beautiful little girl!

I am curious about the speech stuff. How did you know you needed to take him in? What do they do with him?
