Alicia's Monster High Doll
All the kids got Bean bags from Nana & Papa
I cannot believe it's already New Years Eve this entire year has gone by so fast.
We had a fun weekend Saturday we spent the day with a friend of mine and her kids at the Amazing Clown Indoor Party Park here in Las Vegas. The kids had so much fun they had a D.J. and were playing music, Karaoke and There was a booth to have your pictures taken, They had a Jump House, Train, Arcade games, Magic show. I recorded Alicia dancing with her friend she has no idea I posted it on the blog. She is the tall one of course to the right. Logan also came with us even though he could not do much he enjoyed watching everyone. We all had a good time. There friends came over after and spent the night, I had a house full of kids all weekend.
Richard worked on Saturday but was home Sunday morning, When he got up we took the girls friends home and went and did some errands. I had to go to Target and get the kids Teacher's gifts for Christmas, I am almost done shopping for the family I just have to pick up a few more items.
Yesterday I was able to get video of Logan dancing he loves to play with this Christmas stuffed Santa and Mrs Clause that sings. I got it at Hallmark about 5 years ago he just loves to squeeze the hand over and over. We also have a Snowman that stands about a foot high we have also had this for a few years and every year we put it out for Christmas and he is just terrified of it. You push a button and it sings "Shake your groove thing" and it turns around and the butt shakes, it is so cute. Well this year he finally came up to it and pushes the button and scoots away as fast as he can. When it is not playing he will go right up to it and take it's scarf of it's neck and put it around his own neck, It is the cutest thing.
OK So Logan has really been making strides this week. All he does is pull to stand every second of the day. I was crying today (tears of joy) I can not believe how far Logan has come these past three years. I never thought he would be where he is today. I am so excited at how much he has accomplished since starting School in August. I am just so happy words can not even describe how I feel right now. This morning before I started to record Logan, He pulled to stand in front of the kitchen sink and then cruised along to the stove all by himself. So I have to start keeping the camera with me at all times.
Since last week Logan has learned to climb the first step of the stairs backwards pushing up using his feet. Well today he mastered the second step. Looks like I will be going to Babies R Us and buying another safety gate that swings open for the stairs. Because there is no way I will be climbing over a gate all day long :)
Enjoy the videos I know I have :) Thanks for checking in on our family...
So here is the video I promised of Logan pulling to stand, I will get better video during the week.
Also here is are some pictures that were taken over the weekend. We got Logan a Fisher Price Big Wheel He does not know how to use the pedals yet but I am trying to teach him. For now he will just sit and move it around with his feet. He loves his new RIDE....
Everyone is doing good on our end. Back to the Grindstone.
Back in June when we went to Child Find to get tested to see if Logan was eligible to enter the School District to go to Pre-K I was told that Logan needs to see a Pediatric Opthamologist his eyes do not look right. Well I made the appointment it took three months to get in and we finally saw Dr Nelson yesterday she discovered that Logan has Duane Syndrome is a eye muscle disorder you can read about it here http://www.aapos.org/faq_list/duane_syndrome. The Doctor said there is a chance of him having eye surgery to correct it but he will have to be monitored to find out. The Doctor also dilated Logan's eyes and found out that he does not need any glasses at the moment. She also told me that it could over time cause hearing loss she asked me if he had his hearing checked lately I said yes back in June and everything was fine. So this is just another hurdle we have to over come and stay strong about.
After that appointment we headed on over to the Chiropractor to get him adjusted one leg is longer than the other but after she adjusted him the problem was fixed.
My Mom has been sick with Bronchitis so I did some running around for her getting her Grocery's and other things. I feel so bad for her she just feels awful.
Richard is out of town today so it is just the kids and I, We will probably stay home all day so the girls can play with there friends oh and I will most likely make a trip to the library.
Hope everyone enjoys there weekend. Thank you for checking in on us.
