Brennan is enjoying fourth grade and just celebrated their first birthday lunch (fourth grade has three birthday lunches throughout the year). He happened to be in the first group of kids since his birthday is in October. His group decided on an Ocean/Hawaiin theme. Hmmm... I wonder who suggested the ocean theme? LOL! He always looks forward to golf on Thursdays and fishing on the weekends. Other than that, he spends a lot of time outside or watching survival shows on TV. It's nice that the weather has cooled down to the 70's most days and we've started walking Zamboni at night. Kate is happy to spend a little more time in her favorite stroller when we go for our walks- I think she's missed it!
Kate will begin physical therapy and occupational therapy every other Tuesday. Once they have an opening in physical therapy, they'd like to see her every week. She had fun at the evaluations and the therapists were so good at making it seem like play time. The physical therapist, also named Caitlyn, has arranged for the orthodist to evaluate Kate on Tuesday to see what kind of leg braces may help her feet to turn outwards a little better. They certainly makes things convenient for us! We'll meet with Dr. Board on Tuesday to go over her MRI results too (same office). So... Tuesday will be a very busy day for us. :-)
We changed Kate's earrings the other day- it's hard to believe that she's already had her ears pierced for two months! Of course we had to put some cute Hello Kitty earrings in! Kate's also started picking out her own clothes and shoes... it's been hard for me but I've let her leave the house with a red dress and pink shoes a few times or socks that didn't match. She definitely has her own opinion now and there is no changing her mind! It is cute!
Brennan would never admit it... but he is beginning to like having a sister. Right now he's giving her fishing lessons and chasing her around the house. About once a day they end up playing together for a little while. He truly understands his sister better and better and always gives her good advice. He still has his moments when he misses being an only child... but he's slowly coming around! He is the sweetest boy- how could he not love having a sister?!!! He can always make her laugh but he can also make her mad really fast. They are true siblings!!!
