march 12

1. She started the day with TAHOOOO!, one of the few things she likes to eat.
2. Bath time at her pool. Since our Tagaytay spree Thea has been refusing to take a bath at the bathroom. Might have been the shower, we tried using it no bath tub at Lake Hotel eh. Mrs.Maparaan, aka ME, made her take a bath at her pool :)
3. Activity and bath in one, when you see an opportunity - she's happy and you know it - make her do a simple activity. Hers is shooting balls in the ring while she plays in the pool!
4. This is not an activity, its just Thea concentrating to poop. She does that or goes to a corner and make that funny poop sound.
5. That's my To DO and Activity list. Coin bank and letter A was not done because she slept early 6:30 I thought we could still do it but nah she's tired na.

My TO DO list includes sorting out pictures for printing. Haaaay, as you can see there's no check mark. Dont we all need to hire an expert to sort our tons and tons of pics and have them printed or make a book? Photos are accumulating at my D drive and I want them printed. No not everything because printing the entire picture folder requires 1,000,000 pesoses exag yes I know :P but you get the picture. Oh please help me :D

tagaytay weekend part 2

Dinner at Taal Vista. The newly renovated Taal VIsta! I dont know lang if its just me but I think the selection on the buffet table is not enough. It's 900 per head too which is a little bit pricey for the dishes served, me thinks.

Team Brunei. Sleep time muna :D

the best pic by far is this haha! hija dun sa bowl pwede.

And the real Challenge Began

I've been scanning OT notes and my notes re Thea's response to our sessions. I felt the need to be more organized and have a backup in case my notebook got lost. So there scanning done last night and I wrote this

The first thing we did is punching hole on the aluminum foil. Super easy naman she didn't complain one bit. (Butas na yan di lang halata plus gusto nya nakalubog ang toothpick)

An hour later we are ready for our next activity. (We dont do all the activities it on one straight session, 10 minutes at a time is enough) Transferring water using her toy pitcher or glass to the container. Twas messy wala kaming apron and if we do she wont use it so messy kung messy nagenjoy naman sya eh :D

Swing and Slide - Check
Wheelbarrow - I was only able to lift her feet and she used her elbow/arms to keep balance, she didnt walk, but its okay.

This last picture is free play. I just added the pic here just because I find it cute. She was playing with jollibee, tigger the drummer and her other toys. She was talking to the toys with words I couldnt yet undertand :D

She has been showing a lot of improvement lately. For the first time, yesterday she was left alone in the room with Teacher Camille her OT here in Bulacan! Her teacher said she was very compliant and I didnt hear any whining or crying. Proud momma moment!

Bow Down Lower

Not less than 3 times (this year) did I knock my head at the jeepney's ceiling before I went down, and it's only March.

This afternoon I banged my head again while going down the jeep. I am carrying thea and on our way down I bumped my head big time. Good thing I was able to keep my balance.

I miscalculate the height resulting to me banging my head, ouchy. I should have stooped down lower. They say matangkad daw kasi but no I used to ride jeepneys before but I dont bump my head a lot di na lang siguro sanay o masyado lang talaga mababa yung pinto :p Either way I still have to bow down lower and watch my head.

The last sentence hit me. Bow down lower and watch my head! Sometimes I am too proud to say I can do this, with regard to Thea's development I've been doing everything I could, buying anything to help Thea improve.

But no God said you Em cannot do it alone. You need Me. You need to trust me more. And I have My own perfect timing.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. - jer 29:11

I did ask for His help but I had overestimated my strength, this is not in my control. So now I need to bow down lower and ask that He take the wheel from me.

Hope Pray Love,

I dont often ask for help but now I would because I think I need company tomorrow for Thea's 2nd checkup.

Anyone here free tomorrow March 2, 4-5pm Medical City Pasig? Please PM me. Thanks

If you, Bunny Jane, is here in the Philippines i would have called you right away. Just pray for me alright? I need extra strength to brave whatever the doctor will tell me.
