We're Going To Visit My Family

It's official, Griffin and I are going to visit our family down in the lower 48, I bought the tickets on Wednesday. It has been 4 years since I last saw my family when I was pregnant with Griffin and it will be such a joy to see them again. They haven't even met Griffin yet except for my sister-in-law and my niece and nephew who came up to help me when I had surgery a year ago. So that means that my parents, brother, and sister have never met Griffin and are so very anxious to see him. We won't be leaving until the 2nd of April but I am so excited about it I just had to let you know.
Griffin had a good session today at speech with Lisa, they worked on attributes, pronouns, and recognizing animal sounds. Also she played a game with him kind of like hide and seek where she would put a toy on, in, under, and behind something and Griffin was to name where the toy was located. I don't know what the proper name for what he was learning is but I do know that he was catching on to it quite well. It was so amusing to watch him close his eyes as he was playing the game with eager anticipation as Lisa would hide the toy and ask him where to find it. Griffin is really catching on to learning his possessive pronouns too and with distinguishing his from hers, and boy from girl.
Today we will be going to O.T. again and I can't wait to see what Gayle has in store for him. I am sure that it will be something fantastic because she is such an incredible O.T. and a great friend to Griffin.

Hope that all is well with you and that you have a smile upon your face today. Ta Ta For Now!

I'm seeing and hearing progress every day. and there is a way to add multiple photos. When we get a chance to chat, maybe I can walk you through the steps. After all, we'll be expecting to see plenty from the trip. Keep smiling and keep a song in your heart.
