This and That

I'm way behind on posting this, but I have some fabulous news to share, in case you didn't hear it on Facebook...WE WON OUR APPEAL!!!  I was shocked that we found out as quickly as we did, considering they said it would be closer to a month and we found out in a week.  Apparently, the third party arbitrators deemed it so obviously in our favor that there was no need for them to mull over it any longer!  We're approved through May, which is when we would be up for reevaluation anyway.  We're hoping that they will move onto someone else and leave our family alone, but we'll see.  For now, we're covered!!

Abby is pulling up on stuff like a champ now and has officially met all of her physical therapy goals that had been set for her...which were meant to be met by April!!  Go Abs!  We're going to meet to write new goals, since there's no rest for the weary around here. :)  Next up:  walking on her own!

My parents are fostering a new Boxer named Bert who is such a sweet boy!  He's a real lover and Caleb is already head-over-heels for him.  Bert seems to feel the same, because he ran out the door and jumped in the car to leave with us last night! 

I'm on day 4 of a headache, and it is less than pleasant.  I've heard of this happening to people, but I've never had a multi-day headache myself.  Yuck!

The sibling rivalry has officially begun.  Abby loves Legos almost as much as Caleb does, which causes a lot of drama and time outs in our house.  I guess the honeymoon is over!

Finally, remember that the deadline for the caption contest is tonight, 1/29, at 9 p.m.  After that, our non-biased judge will select the winner anonymously!  We have had lots of funny captions so far on here and through emails.  Remember that you can post more than one!  Look for a post tomorrow announcing the winner!

They do make legos in pastel colors. Had to get the pastels for my daughter so she would leave my son's legos alone. As they got older they shared all of them together, but getting two kinds helped in the beginning. It is wonderful that Abby has met all her goals so far. I know she will continue to surprise and impress everyone as she masters new skills. She is so adorable in her new purple hat. Tric Gillette
