So....here are a few of those successes (in no particular order)!
This week Little G went #2 on the potty. I know a lot of parents' kids struggle with potty training. Others not so much. But it is a HUGE challenge for SPD kiddos. In fact, he rarely does anything on the potty. And this was the first. time. ever. for #2. It was the tiniest little bit and most was already in his pull-up, but we all squealed with delight -- and G got to choose his potty prize....an hour long DVD of Bubble Guppies. (What was I thinking?!? Twenty minutes of that show will drive any sane person crazy. Yes. But I was already crazy. Crazy excited I guess.)

I know we had other minor victories since my last post...but I just cannot recall them all at this very moment. Oh well. But, not to be out down by their brother, Carter and Noémi have had their own recent successes. And we take none of those for granted either! Carter is reading like a champ! At the end of the school year he was reading small words and simple sentences but literally this summer has completely mastered reading. He surprises me daily by the text he sees and recites to me. Noémi is right on track for her developmental milestones and has really blossomed into an active baby this past month. She is rolling all around and flails her arms and legs on her belly as if she was ready to master this crawling thing. She laughs and giggles at her silly brothers and sleeps like a champ through the entire night. And at her check up this Monday, she was 15lbs 6oz! Maybe because she is the third, or because I am so busy, but I feel like her infancy is flying by...oh, to slow time a bit and soak in her baby-ness!
