Well Hello There!!
Welcome to my "hiding spot"! Please close the door behind you and make sure not to let any kids in here! This is MY area! I sit in here and whisper so no one can find me.
My name is Heather and I'm a 30 year old mom to 4 boys. Aidan is 9, Austin is 7, Avery is 4 and Andrew is 4 months. All boys. All A names.
My 4 year old has speech apraxia, sensory integration, and social anxiety. His therapists go back and forth on whether he has an aspergers diagnosis or not. It will probably be a while before we truly know or not. Right now I spend a lot of my life at his therapies. He also attends a special needs preschool 4 days a week in the mornings.
Andrew was born in November and spent almost 2 weeks in the NICU. Although he was born "on time" according to my dates, the NICU team thought he was closer to 35-36 weeks and his lungs were not ready. He was on a ventilator for a while, then moved to a CPAP, then finally to nothing. It was a scary time for me. And it was absolute torture leaving him at the hospital when I was discharged. We made it though and now he's growing like a weed and doing so well. Just today he rolled from back to belly!
I participated last year in the UBP and couldn't wait to participate again this year! I LOVE meeting new people and especially new mom bloggers!
Grab a cup of coffee and stick around! I've been a slacker at posting lately, but I promise that will change!
