i wanted to give a quick update on what is going on with the early intervention services in our state. the day before claire’s therapies were to be cut, a judge issued an injunction and stopped the state from ending services to babies! our DDD coordinator says that therapies will continue until they hear otherwise. can i get an AMEN?! in the meantime, we are applying for federal long term care funding for claire since those programs are more protected than the state programs. it is difficult for babies to qualify but we are hopeful that with claire’s diagnosis, she will be accepted. so anyway, a big hooray for the judge who helped all the families and babies who benefit from early intervention therapies! i am so happy to see evidence of people in power who really have a heart for the citizens they serve and do what is right! i’ll try to keep you all updated as this situation progresses and rally the troops if needed! 🙂

last weekend, our little family (minus lily) traveled to las vegas to visit our newest family member, alyssa hope. what a cutie! i can already envision shopping trips with tia nicky and prima claire in her future!


we had a wonderful road trip, claire did awesome with her bottle and was an angel in the car and hotel room. she was a bit cranky at nights but that can be attributed to two little teeth popping up on the bottom of her mouth! we only wish rich and ivana lived closer so we could spend more time together. i remember all the time i spent with my cousins growing up and i am so thankful claire now has two special cousins in her life. here’s the troublemakers together:


it isn’t easy getting three little kids to pose for you, that’s for sure! big hug and kiss to richie and alyssa, we miss you guys already!
