Macy has settled into her new routine, so far, quite well. While McKenzie is at Pre-school on Monday and Wednesday mornings, I take Macy into Omaha for Private Occupational and Speech Therapy. After meeting with and talking to a few people, we have decided to take her to "Stones Worth Stepping". It is a nice facility and the gals who work there seem super knowledgeable, enthusiastic and genuine. I'd say that's a "winning combination :-)
This is in addition to the Early Intervention team who comes to the house every Friday. They are still doing an AWESOME job and I love and appreciate all that they do and will continue to do for Little Miss Macy...I just think, as long as insurance continues to cover it, Macy will benefit from getting a little more. All of them will even communicate and work together to "be on the same page" as far as how Macy is doing, etc...
I was initially turned off by the idea of having to leave the house and go to an off-site location to receive therapy. But now, I think it is worth it and kind of nice to expose Macy to new surroundings and get her working with different "contraptions", swings, etc...that we of course do not have in our home.
|What a big girl! Such good balance :-)|
|Macy impresses her OT with her strength and ability to "almost" sit up :-)|
|oh yeah...BALL PIT!! Mom can we put one of these in our basement? can we, huh huh?|
|There are interestingly enough, several therapeutic "things" they can do with ball pits these days. hm.|
|working on some gross motor skills, reaching, grabbing and exploring new textures!|
If nothing else, it just warms my heart to have more caring people loving and "playing productively" with our little Macy. Interaction is KEY to a good quality life :-)
|oh and her friend Ella was there today! :-) Her daddy works with Macy's daddy...so it turns out we will be seeing a lot more of her and her mom Jen now :-)|
And since this blog is NOT all about Macy...here's a little of what McKenzie had in store for today...
PONIES at Pre-school!!
|patiently waiting her turn...|
It's "Cowboy Week"
p.s. - HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GRANDPA LEE TODAY!!!! We love you and appreciate everything you do for all of us each and every day. What would we do without you?!? You rock!!!
