Birthday girl and dad

Today is Alex's birthday. Happy Birthday! We celebrated Nora's party today because Alex will be out of town this week and next week. But then he'll be done for a while.

We had 15 of Nora's friends at Gymboree for some fun. It was great. There were kids with special needs and typical kids. Lots of friends from school and our family friends. Everyone had a great time. Nora was not into the organized activities such as the musical instruments and circle time. She just liked to run around and explore. Emma loved it too. It is so nice to not have to worry about Nora's safety at a party. Usually we are running after her to make sure she stays in the space or doesn't climb on something too big etc. Today was very enjoyable for the kids and parents.

I had Nora's IEP meeting last week. We are slotted to go to another preschool in our neighborhood but we're still hoping they'll let us stay where we are. I just can't imagine not being at the EEU. It is such a wonderful place for the children and the families. Alex and I went yesterday to help tear down the old playground. I actually stuffed envelopes for the auction. They are getting new play equipment.
So if we do have to leave, Thursday will be our last day. Sad sad sad.
Nora turns 3 on the 7th. Unbelievable. It's been a LOOONNNGGG two years from when we realized there was something not quite right. She's come a long way. Hooray for Norsie.
Thanks for checking in!
