Life is Crazy

Things have been really busy and weird at the Zook household. Emma has been off and on very ill lately. So, we are making the rounds with a few of her specialist to try to get to the bottom of all of this before we all go crazy. Her not being well has really made making plans hard. We are basically having to wait to see how she is doing in the morning to plan anything. So, play dates are not really happening right now, which is sad for Emma and me! We really miss our friends.

I am trying hard to adjust to my new schedule at the library. But trying to find time to work on crafts, book choices, and so on, is really hard. I am still trying to fit it all in, but mostly I am staying up late to get it all done after she goes to sleep. I love my work, but it has been a really long time since I did it, and I am a lot slower then I use to be:) Call it age or extreme exhaustion (Emma still wakes up at night) :)

Anyway, we have a lot going on in the coming weeks. We see a lot of doctors and we have her big dates with Metro. March 3rd is her testing date, and then the 24th is her big meeting:( I am still sad that she is about to be added to the Metro schools system. She is so young, but I guess I am going to have to learn to let go a little bit! I am not happy about it though. She needs so much help, and I do not want her ignored.

Emma is learning so much right now! She is starting to sort by color and like items too. She is learning more of her letters every week. She already knows that M is for mommy, d is for daddy, o is for Owen, e is for Emma, and b is for ball. WE are working on a few others but she is still not getting them. She has learned to say hooray when we sing "If you are Happy and you Know it" which is so cute! She just screams it so loud and clear.

She makes me smile and brings me so much joy. I am really feeling better mentally, but very tired right now. I really wish she would sleep better and let me and daddy sleep too. She is trying to give up her nap, but mommy says no!!!!!!!!!!! NOT YET!

I hope all is well in your life. May God bring you rest and peace!
