Baby Talk

We've added a new member to our family this week!
I'd like to introduce you to Penny!

She's a 6 week old Golden Retriever/Lab mix and already winning our hearts over. Although we knew getting a new puppy would be challenging with the girls, we really needed to get our "veteran" dog, Ringo, a friend to play with. Ringo is still a little unsure about her, but he is finally ok being in the same room as her. The girls just LOVE her. The night we brought Penny home, Reagan was so happy that she just started bawling. She would pet her and sob, and cried harder when I took Penny outside. It's been a bit of an adjustment, but so far so good!

We finally had our speech therapy appointment for the girls today. They tested them in everything, similar to their NICU follow-up appointments, just to make sure speech therapy was all that they needed. Turns out they are doing way better than I ever anticipated! Let me quickly remind you that they just became 19 months old yesterday...

Reagan Tested:
22 months in Adaptive Skills
27 months in Personal-Social Skills
27 months in Gross Motor Skills
37 months in Fine Motor Skills
Her only negative was 15 months in communication skills.

Kenely Tested:
20 months in Adaptive Skills
23.5 months in Personal-Social Skills
27 months in Gross Motor Skills
25 months in Fine Motor Skills
And her only negative was 14 months in communication skills.

The funny thing is that only Kenley qualifies for speech therapy since she is just a little behind, but the ECI assesment ladies told us that the speech therapist will work with both since they will need to be learning the same things anyway.

Well that's all for this week. Now I'll leave you with these sweet baby faces :)
