Today, I am thinking where is my joy? I have let lots of things steal it from me and I am on a mission to take it back. I have more than enough to be thankful for and yet decide daily to dwell on the most unimportant things that make me unhappy.

Lord help me to have a merry heart that doeth good like a medicine and not a broken spirit that drieth the bones!

A Day Late

Well I missed World Down Syndrome Day. So I will post today. Abbi is doing great. We got good news from her kidney doctor. It seems that her left kidney is stable, which means it has gotten any worse and her right kidney is perfectly normal now. I am very excited to hear this. We have been praying since she was born for them to be normal size. She is doing good with her potty training, but we aren't trying too hard right now just offering for her to go. If she has to go when you put her on the potty she will go. But if not she refuses to sit on it. This summer we are going to start trying very seriously b/c when she starts preschool in the fall she needs to be mostly trained. I am hoping for fully trained!

She is doing well, but her language is so far behind. She is three and doesn't seem to have progresed like I was hoping she would. She is starting to get your hand and drag you to whatever she wants, but doesn't seem very interested in telling you with her words or signs. Honestly it seems she has regressed. Needless to say I am frustrated. I hope that when she starts preschool her language will take off b/c she is with other kids.

We'll just have to wait and see. I can' wait for school to be out for the summer!
