BOYS....2 YEARS OLD...HOLDING HANDS! LOVE the LOVE they share (occasionally:))

I wanted to blog some great news. I received an email yesterday from the Early Intervention program in our county and here it is....

Hey Dana,

Regina re-evaluated the boys last week and they no longer qualify for Early Intervention services. They both have progressed so well and it was a pleasure working with you and your family. I will mail you a copy of the evaluations once Regina completes the write up. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at any time. I wish you and your family the best.

We are thrilled with the good news. We are grateful for the progress they have made. We will continue working with these little guys, pushing them to learn and develop along side of their peers. But for now, they are typically developing, cognitively 'caught up' and we are incredibly giddy to share their good news.

Claire wanted to snuggle with James in her bed last night....Claire fell asleep and James enjoyed the snuggle....when I walked in her room to take James back to his room, this is what I found....a precious big sister snuggled up with her little baby brother...melts my heart!
