Madi had her final swim this morning before Christmas break. She is going through a growth spurt at the same time as having a cold so everything is uncomfortable and tight for her right now. The 1 hour swim was perfect to get everything moving for her. Madi hung out with the team after until the end of practice.
Madi and Jacks friend Ruby gave them super cute Christmas presents after practice… thanks Ruby!
The rest of the day was spent at home resting and trying to get rid of all the germs. Madison helped get all her gifts for School ready. Her job was to read Mommy the list of names from her class for their cards. She did an awesome job!
Madison is slowly becoming more confident at trying to walk around at home. She walks nervously when someone isn’t right behind her so we are very proud of her for trying.
Jack is still on the mend and spent his day lounging around the house in his PJ’s.
The countdown is on…8 days!
Madison has loved all her theme days in December. Her School does different themes on Friday’s leading up to the Christmas holidays that Madison has loved participating in. Today was crazy hair day!
Mommy also had a long chat over the phone today with the OT assigned to Madison within her school. She is starting a second block of OT at school that will focus on safety, positioning, accessibility, fine motor and self help skills. We are very impressed thus far with all the supports and people put in place for Madison to be successful.
Madison LOVED the snow at recess today! She said her red outdoor walker worked great in the snow and she made snow Angels with her friends.
After School was a bit crazy, but Madison was able to get some walking in at Neurochangers!
Madi had a great session with Jo-Anne tonight. We made it through the snow just in time. She worked hard and got to try out new strengthening exercises that Jo-Anne was taught in her recent workshop in Florida. Mommy has more new ideas on how to continue building strength at home.
Madison was super excited that it was her turn with her class homework project. They are making a class book based off the the Christmas Story. She was asked to pick a Christmas word to write about and draw a matching picture. She picked Joseph and was very proud of her work.
