Sheena has been doing the actions to lots of songs to amuse Roy. He is suitably amused and smiles or chuckles along. Today it was the Little Green Frog, and Sheena makes the funniest Galoomp noise (you have to know the song for that to make any sense).
Sheena has been really sick for the past few days. Conjunctivitis started Saturday - eye cream from the GP. She had a blue episode on Sunday during breakfast, and had a swollen lip which the GP thinks may have been a severe reaction to the eye cream. Another visit to the GP and now on full-on antibiotics and eye-drops instead of the cream. We're anxious she'll pass it on to Roy, so I am washing away the day. No more blue-episodes, but it was very odd and scary. Here she is looking rather under the weather, but still keen to give Roy a laugh.

Sheena has started a new developmental school. She is
2.8 years old, so now qualifies to enter the school system rather than just the early intervention centres. Its still basically an early intervention program, but its funded by the Education Department rather than the Department of Human Services, so it gets A LOT more Government funding, and can extend to 3 days a week, rather than 2 hours a week. We don't think Sheena needs 3 days a week, so for this year she is starting off with 1 day. The facilities are significantly better, with a gymnasium, a shaded outdoor playground with a good surface, and the children get regular 1-1 therapy as well as class activities. Its 1-7 children ratio, with 2 additional support staff in the room. We're quite excited about it, and Sheena did very well on her first day. She picked Banana's in Pyjamas for song time (not one we ever do at home), and the teacher described her as a 'mover'. Yes, we know...
