Talking up a storm

Miss. Lila has begun talking up a storm. I have been waiting patiently (or not so patiently) for while for her to pick up on new words. She's been able to say mama for awhile but a couple weeks ago she said dada for the first time. Of course she decided to say it REALLY loud during the silent prayer at church on 9/11 but hey she said it!! Daniel is beyond excited. She is also babbling lots of other sounds. Lila has quite the bag of tricks now. She can wave, sign yes, she knows where her hair and mouth are, and can pucker her lips when you ask for a kiss : ) we're also getting quite the attitude! She loves to throw her arm over her forehead very dramatically and lean backwards when she is mad that i won't give her my glasses. Oh and we play peek-a-boo pretty much ALL day. I am amazed that she picks up on so many things at once. Sometimes I get worry about her developmental delays but I try to remember that she's been through so much in her short little life and will catch up. All of the doctors and therapists we've talked to have assured us that she will catch up but that it will take awhile. It seems like we go long periods without learning anything new and then BAM, she'll learn like five new things that we've been working on within two or three days.
So we're getting close to October and that means......Spina bifida awareness month!!! I was really hoping that we would be able to participate in the Walk 'n' Roll for spina bifida in Kentucky (our closest SB chapter) but it doesn't look like we'll be able to make it this year : ( next year we WILL be there and we WILL raise some money for SB! Team Lila! woo woo! And we will get to see our SB friends!
Also November is Epilepsy awareness month! Lila and a special little boy I work with have epilepsy so please check out and get seizure smart!
My new job is going great! I'm planning a Family Fun night for our preschool families next month and i'm really excited about it. Daniel is doing pretty good. It turns out that his knee is going to be ok and doesn't need surgery (Praise God!).
Well that's it for now. Thanks for following!
Alyssa, Daniel, and Lila
