We're going to go over our list again, maybe something totally different will pop up and be the right one for us. There's many that might be opening up, but we won't know until March. We'd really like to get something set up quickly so we have 1 less thing to think about. But the options that might be there are pretty nice.
I've been working on packing up stuff. I want to be totally prepared and not have a ton of stuff to pack on the day of our move. So far I have about 10 boxes packed. A lot of the other stuff we're either using or it's already in totes and stuff. Feels like I got a decent start on it. It seems to be good stress relief too! I go pack a couple boxes and it feels good to get things done.
Tyler has been a big help in getting things done. He inspects my boxes inside and out, helps me put things in there and even sweeps the floor. He loves playing with the broom, he really seems to have the hang of it, though he does more pushing than sweeping!
Big box! Grandma bought a new chair for the living room and brought us the box for the boys to play in. It's been lots of fun! Who needs toys when you have a big box to play in?!
I switched Tyler out of his crib and into the bottom bunk the other day. It's going really well! I barely hear anything out of them at all. He loves his bed, he crawls right into it and never protests. He's always been really good about bedtime, so I hoped the change would go well for him but it's always hard to tell how they'll do when the routine is changed. Thankfully he seems very adaptable. :)
I had called the Neurology clinic the other day to see if Dawson's test results were back. I got a call today saying his bloodwork looked good and he tested negative for Fragile X. I didn't think that one fit him to begin with, so I wasn't surprised. His hemoglobin was normal, still on the low side though. He hasn't been eating his vitamin much at all anymore so I was wondering about that. I think I'll start crushing it up and putting it in his juice like I do with his laxitive. I started him back on the laxitives yesterday because I thoguht he was getting backed up again. His appetite was down and I haven't been seeing as many diapers lately. They say GI problems are very common with Autistic kids/people, so that's another interesting thing that seems to fit that diagnosis.
The boys are both very into their books lately. Dawson is always bringing me books to read and Tyler is always happy to run over and sit on my lap (what's left of it!) with Dawson and look at books. Tonight I spent 45 minutes before bed just reading books. They were both bringing me about 2-3 at a time! Their favorites being train, car and ABC books. Tyler is really getting into them now, he babbles along with me like he's reading and he points to random things too. Here's Tyler still sitting and looking at books after I got up. We had quite a few books out by the time we were done!
He's so cute, the book barely fits on his lap!
Dan is at his parent's house overnight tonight. Some people are coming to get his and his Dad's truck tomorrow! Hopefully they will follow through with the sale, they already put money down on it and sounded very serious about it. It'll be nice not to have one less thing to think about.
