Norah’s hot pink ear mold just came in and she loves it. She was due for a new pair because the old ones were not fitting very well and ringing a lot. She loves all things pink. We did not push this either, she always has a choice of what clothes to pick out for the day. Sometimes that leads to crazy looking out fits but hey she can pull any look off.
In fact today when we went to speech therapy she wore a pink Sunday dress with her rings and the shoes a nurse at Children’s gave her. She was all to happy with all the ladies that Children’s hospital signing to her how pretty she was. They really care about her well being and future and we are so lucky to live so close to a world class hospital and staff.
It is so different to have a daughter. Now that her sign language comprehension is getting better you can bring her to tears just by signing that she is being bad and needs to stop. Or some days if she thinks you are not going to let her help make a cake or cookies the water works come on until you can make her understand that daddy or mommy needs to do this part of it because she could get hurt.
And to the second water works it is so nice to have a pond. I really enjoy the sound of the water fall. It really helps drowned out the city and neighbors noise (although I don't think anything can drown out these new people). In most states these hyacinth plants (the purple ones) have been outlawed because they breed so fast, they need to stay out of lakes and rivers and be keep in private ponds.
