Tonight, before the girls went to bed, all three of them came in to my room, crawling on their bellies, chanting, "Traveling like fishies, traveling like fishies."

I assume Lily was behind the word choice.

The cast is gone! Started physical therapy yesterday. I think that it will be a slightly slower road than I originally thought. The sum total of my therapy yesterday consisted of forward and backward stretching (no lateral movement for quite a while, apparently)and a really cool machine that does compression and cooling at the same time. That felt *really* good!

Other than that, nothing much to report. PB is still carting my ass around, poor guy. Girls are doing great. Brooklyn has been cleared to enroll in preschool in the fall to address some of the speech and cognitive delays, which is fantastic. Working on finding a preschool for Lily, too - she really wants to go and I think that some structure would be good for her.

Updates, etc.

Brooklyn: She's awesome. So awesome that she may not quality to be enrolled in the special needs daycare that she qualified for 3 months ago. Her speech has gone through the roof - it's unreal.

Visits with her mom are going much better. I continue to be concerned that mom is mostly disinterested. At a birthday party we did at Chu.ck.e.ch.ee.se, she handed Brooklyn to me saying, "Here, go to mama." I was taken aback - I mean I know that she appreciates what we do and she knows that Brooklyn loves us, but that just struck me as odd. Anyway, mom is in the halfway house until end of August, so that will really be the test.

Lily: She's great - we had a rough patch a month or so ago when her sensitivity issues really flared up. Seems to be evening out. I think that it was related to a growth spurt but I don't know for sure.

Lucy: Rotten, really, really, rotten. She thinks that misbehaving is the funniest things. EVER. and we really have not come across an effective discipline strategy for her yet - we're working on it.

The ankle: in a hard cast, stable, PIA - so pretty much the same, except hopefully the cast will be gone in about a week and a half.

PB: Is rocking the SAHD gig. I think he actually enjoys it and the girls certainly love it.

So that's the latest. What's happening in your part of the world?
