Julia tidbits:

  • The things that come out of her mouth nowadays never fail to crack me up. I really shouldn't laugh, it's not funny...but it's nearly impossible to keep a straight face. Her favorite word for the longest time has been "NO!". Whether it's telling her it's time for bed, time to go to school, time to sit on the potty, the first response is usually a firm "No!" To which I often say "Don't tell me no! Yes!". Yesterday as I was getting her in the car for school she was saying "No school!" and I was responding with "Yes school!" which she said..."No tell me yes!" Hilarious stuff.
  • Bath time is still a favorite, for her and Daniel both. The other night I asked "Julia, are you ready to get out?" And she very politely responded..." thank you".
  • We were driving home from therapy Monday night...I was lost in thought trying to figure out what to make for dinner. I caught Julia's reflection in the rearview mirror and she was looking at me with a concerned expression. She then said "Mommy, no happy!" I said "Mommy's not sad honey...see?" and I smiled at her. To which she responded..."Yay, Mommy's happy!". She is so concerned with other people's feelings lately. I stubbed my toe last weekend and she started crying because I had a boo-boo.

Yesterday we had quite the scare...I got a call from the school nurse that she had tripped and hit her mouth on the corner of a bookshelf. Her top front teeth were loose and she had bit through her lower lip. We took her to the ER to get checked out and thankfully she didn't need any stitches. We also saw her dentist later that day and he feels like it will be his opinion the teeth will probably not fall out. They were pushed back and may even go back to normal. Going to the ER was pretty traumatic for her...there is no doubt that hospitals have a bad association for her. It will be nice to be on the other side of next week's EEG.

Caden has also said "Don't say no to me Mommy" when I tell him no. Isn't it hilarious to hear yourself from their lips.

Poor Julia, I hope those teeth are ok.

Sophie's Story by Elaine said...

LOVE IT!!! I am so happy to hear that she is doing so well. And to hear all the witty things she is coming up with.

By the way, Sophie fell and pushed her bottom front tooth completely forward. I took her to the dentist and they pushed it back. That happened maybe a year ago and her tooth is just fine.

I am sure you are anxious about the EEG. Good luck with everything. I will be thinking about you all.

Wow she really is doing very well, that's fantastic.

Sucks about the lip thing though. Whenever I see the school on the caller ID my heart skips a beat until I pick up wondering if I am gonna get a call about some injury.

What's with the girls knockin' their teeth loose? Bristel did lose one with a fall...and the dentist had to pull the other. Of course they coulldn't be next to eachother. Oh no. They had to be WV style...with one tooth in the middle!


SO happy to hear how Julia's continuing to grow! Empathy is such a sweet wonderful emotion!

Keep it up Julia!
