"These are the children God has graciously given to me. (us)" - Genesis 33:5

Well I took Ethan to his Easter Seals sensory input evaluation. I say I here because Michelle fell down the stairs at home last week and seemed to have pulled somthing in her shoulder, she did not sleep all weekend and the doctor wanted to see her at the same time Ethan's appointment was. Sooo I took Ethan alone. As every mother knows a father bringing a child to something that requires answers of daily routine can be quite...interesting.

So we met Jessica, who by the way is excellent. Ethan was a little hesitant at first but he soon warmed up to her. She had him sit and play with a big ol rubbermaid bucket of beans and he loved that. Then it was on to puzzles and writing. Which he did fine. She would like to see him hold a pen/pencil correctly though. After that we went into the big room which had all sorts of fun things to play with. There was a ball pit, which he could not get enough of, the other toys that he loved was the zip line. I would place him on the line and push him he would hang there until he was over the ball pit, then he would drop. He LOVED it, we must have done that 10 times, at least. Then there was the scooter and ramp which he loved as well. He had a blast.

Jessica put him through a set of tasks and tests to see where he was developmentally. Seems that the little guy is doing ok. She seems to think that he needs a bit of work but nothing serious and nothing long term. Which made us feel better. She will come up with a report in a few weeks and a plan as well. So we shall see.

If you see Michelle please be nice, the meds are making her quite groggy.
