Next on the agenda

I scheduled an evaluation for Goldie to see if she qualifies for this program. I should have done it last year, but I didn't know how to fit anything more into our schedule. I'm still not sure how it will all work out. I just know we need some new ideas and suggestions on how to get Goldie to actually play with her toys for more than 2 seconds. ANd I would love to have some idea as to what she can actually see. We went to the zoo for Mother's Day and I think the only animals Goldie saw were the fish in the aquarium and maybe an elephant. I kept telling her to "look" and turning her head and pointing. I'm not sure she even understands what it means to "look" for something. I know she can indentify what the animals are because we read books at home and she can match some of her toy animals to the pictures in her books. Ah well, maybe next year.

wow, that seems like a great program! Goldie is doing great at matching things! We need to do a Zoo trip before it is too hot out here!

Eva just barely got the 'look' concept. It's been in the past 6 months or so. It happened about the time she started figuring out 'you' 'me' and 'I'
She is finally able to follow a 2-3 step comand, like go into the computer room and get your book. Or go get your drink off the table.
I actually caught her sitting and reading yesterday. Like quietly, and still, sitting on the couch looking at pictures in a book. Usually she too, is just pulling things apart. Although she does really like her play kitchen, now that her little sister is able to go sit with her at the table.

Hopefully they can give some suggestions - it looks like a great program.
