She has really got into ballet lately and twirling around like a ballerina. I thought she just came out of the spin too fast but it was more than likely her inner ear and the fluid. We are already praying she doesnt have to have a third set but if so this one will stay in longer.
Other than all the doctors and sicknesses, Reese has really been growing and she's trying to talk more. In the last week, she has aquired two new sayings. Her first is one she learned from Dora ( her new favorite person ). She loves Swiper and in all the Dora episodes he tries to swipe something from Dora and she has to stop him. Once he's stopped, he says " ah man." Now out of no where Reese tells us.." ah man " all the time. It's super cute.
But the one we love the best is that she seems to have just realized this is her home. While me & Reese were playing in her room the other night, out of the blue she told me..." mama , this my hou " as she was just looking around. I said yes this is your house. She told me over and over ..." "this my hou " and "this my roo" . I cant put into words exactly what I felt but I couldnt stop the tears from pooling in my eyes. I never realized she didnt know this was her house and this was her room. It was something to see her put two and two together and realize she had a home, a room, a family. Now she tells everyone .. " this my hou". And she even told me the other night half asleep when she was up sick and coughing.." my hou mama ".
She's been home almost two years now. I cant help but wonder I failed somewhere making her feel loved and secure. Or maybe did somewhere in that little brain just finally understand and everything click?? I just dont know but I'm truly glad she's finally home.
It has been an interesting couple of weeks in our home. First we got two days of absolutely beautiful weather. It was awesome. We were all beginning to believe spring would never come.
And then bam ...we all got sick. Each of us with something different but all at the same time. First Mark, then me and last but not least Reese.
Guess who got the flu shot in our family.... we all did. But guess who got the flu this year... Reese.
