Fall 2012

Finally! An update!  Be prepared for a slew of photos.  It's been so long since I last posted I feel like I have some catching up to do.  Veronica is fabulous and completely enjoying toddlerhood.  She is such a joy to be around.  And still, after all of this time, I look at her in complete amazement.  It's clear to me that will never go away, which in many ways is a blessing.  The big news is that Veronica was officially discharged from physical therapy.  Her motor skills are exactly where they should be at this point.  The only obvious delay we see right now is in her speech.  While she clearly understands so much of what we say and do, we haven't heard the words yet.  A speech therapist recently started coming out once a month so we're hoping to see some progress over the next few weeks.  We have entered our second RSV season here in Maryland but we haven't made any plans for isolating Veronica like we did last year.  I'm hoping we don't regret that decision.  Our pediatrician made no recommendation to do so and Veronica didn't even qualify for a second season of Synagis, something I have mixed feelings about.  So it's back to lots of hand washing, hand sanitizer and prayers for an RSV free winter!
