Sheena started her EI playgroup today after the school holiday break. Fortunately she is back to being healthy and happy after her umpteenth illness for the year. This one lasted only 4 days which is a record. Unfortunately she missed a fun 3rd birthday party during this one, but thats the way it is.
Sheena is rather obsessed with her Nan at the moment. Nan is rather fond of Sheena too, so that is no surprise. Nan met us at playgroup today to pick Sheena up, and the little one couldn't control herself. She got stuck on the carpet and couldn't shuffle over, but she jumped up and down on her rear trying to propel herself over. Everyone thought it was very cute. Lots of new songs. Fortunately Sheena liked Hadie-Ho, where they have to be positioned in quadruped, because its usually hard to keep it fun in that possie.
We got cc'd on correspondence from Sheena's Neuro to her GP regarding her last appointment. He mentioned that her Infantile Spasms or West Syndrome is in remission. How much I wish he'd written 'cured', because that is generally what I say to Doc's etc when they take a history. Its a very dark shadow. They've never used the remission word before, so it was a bit of a shock. Anyway, its just a word, I think she's cured.

That's great that she was healthy enough to go back to EI playgroup; and how sweet that she was so excited to see her nan!

She is so beautiful! I quite like Hadie myself. Hannah's EI has this vestibulator contraption where basically the OT holds the child on a 'log' that swings back and forth and sings Hadie Ho the whole while - Hannah loved it even though it was very hard work. We still sing it - when reading Elmer and the Lost Teddy - the brats love it still.
