We begin to find and become ourselves when we notice how we are already found, already truly, entirely, wildly, messily, marvelously who we were born to be.

Long-Overdue Esme Update

We will be starting a new therapy with Esme (called RDI - Relationship Development Intervention) in April. We are really looking forward to having another structured type of therapy going on in the house.

Esme has been enjoying her preschool and seems to have made a couple of friends - they like her and say hello to her, and she ignores them. Unless they are running around, then shes right in there!

We have offically decided not to send her to kindergarten next year, and I am really looking forward to having her home with me.

Esme has been attending dance class since February. She is getting into it and is actually doing some of the things the other little girls are doing. She loves looking in the mirror though, so the huge wall-sized mirror in the dance room is a pretty big distraction!

Esme has spent the last week very sick with a flu, and all that weight we worked so hard to put on her has fallen right off. Back to square one!

We have been loving the spring weather and have gone on more than a few walks along the river, to the park, and just around the block.

Now that things have settled down and we are back into a good routine, I am looking forward to getting back into posting regularly on the blog.

Pictures soon - including dance class! A must-see.
