Well today just seemed to run away with itself and it all started with reading a story on the internet about cement manufacturing plants and heavy metal poisoning, I never quite got round to writing anything earlier.Sorry.
Brilliant progress with Beauty today, she came to me and said I AM HUNGRY and I was so pleased because it is the first time she has verbally requested something. I made her some food and gave it to her and she pushed the food away and said DRINK, believe it or not I was just as pleased. She didn't know how to say I AM THIRSTY but she was able to say what she did know and still communicate her needs.
Life is very quiet with Anastasia and Dimitri back in Vienna, though Ariel is at the house so though she is just one person the noise level can be significantly increased to seem like more.
I really feel that I must have done something terribly wrong in a previous existence,at present Elmo, Dora the Explorer and Barney are on constantly in our house and the noise is just getting to me. I have had a headache for days, I think it is linked to the viral infection that I've had. My girls are the sort to have music on constantly, even when they are on the computer they have music blasting out.Music for me is something that you sit down and listen to, I have a collection of LP's, a lot of classical music as well as 60's and 70's music.
Elmo is sad because tomorrow his Mommy has to go to work! So to make up for it they are making cupcakes................OH Well nearly bedtime,
Good Night Barney
Good Night Elmo
Good Night Dora(and don't forget the Map!)
Good Night Beauty

Constant Barney? Oh poor you! I can't think of anything worse! Half an hour of him drives me up the wall...!

New words are so exciting! Especially when those words are true communication - great stuff.




An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
