Where are my manners?

I'm sorry!!  I can't believe I haven't posted in almost 2 weeks!!  Where are my manners?  We have been so busy with baseball and appointments and work and well...just life! 

Little T is doing great.  She is starting to play more with her little friends at daycare though I still see her shutting down some.  At church this past Sunday I brought her into the nursery.  This is the 4th or 5th time she's been in there.  I showed her a toy, waved bye-bye and went out to enjoy the sermon.  When I went to get her just 30 minutes later she was in the same spot staring into space.  She had shut down completely.  Poor baby!!  And shame on those nursery workers!!  They should have tried to talk to her and get her to play with the other kids, but noooo!!  They just let her stand there!  I will have to show them next week how to interact with her.  I didn't like her shutting down like that and I thought we had gotten past that.  Shame on me too.

Her play therapy is going to move to the day care next week.  Aunt J noticed that she acts different when I'm around her.  She had her last Friday for the afternoon and she said that she played with her but just didn't act the same - it was like she was having fun but she wasn't all there.  Partial shut down I guess.  We are hoping that play therapy will help her interact better.  J is so wonderful!!  It's good to know that I can count on her to point out little things to me - things that I don't see because I'm too close.  I love J!!! 

L is doing very well in school so far this year.  He's playing fall ball and is enjoying being with his friends.  He keeps telling me he has only 6 SHORT months before he can drive by himself.  Oh help us all!!

T calls us quite often and I really enjoy talking with him.  College is going well and he starts his job (yeah!) this Thursday.  He'll be working as a life guard at the YMCA.  Baby H is also doing well and is starting to eat baby food already.  Wow!  He said she really likes peas.  Funny - he won't eat food that is green but his daughter loves it! His fiancee is also doing well and they seem to be adjusting to their new life.

Okay - I know you want some pictures - here are 2 layouts for you from Labor Day.  I know....I'll get some more recent ones up soon.

Glad to see your post. I was beginning to wonder about you guys. I am sure things will get better with Little T. She sounds a little like Miss Evelyn. She has been so much better about school but some days she still has to cry a little. I keep thinking that one day it will be over. You are right - shame on the nursery worker. Emelia is doing great. She is quite happy to be with the grandparents. We are spoiled with that. Who knows how she will be when we start preschool? I can't believe that L will soon drive. Tell him we said hi.

Good to hear that everything is going so well. Beautiful LOs and I can't believe L is going to be driving soon. Please tell him Happy B-Day from us. Glad to hear that T,T&H are well too. Sounds like little H is getting to be so big. Sorry to hear that little T has been pulling away, but I am sure it will pass with a little time.
