Today I ordered braces for Maddie to insert in her shoes. They are supposed to help her stand more sure footed. I really hope they work and she doesn't get mad when I try to put them on her. I really want her to walk before her 2nd birthday, which is next month. So I hope they are delivered quickly.

I think she liked it!

Time is going by so quickly. We had a meeting to determine if Maddison is eligiable to go to school in September. SCHOOL IN SEPTEMBER, WHAT????? At 13 weeks pregnant when we had a 1:4 chance of having a baby with Ds I was told from that moment, "The baby will never leave, it will live with you forever, you will always have to care for it". Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine she would be going to school at 2. At the meeting I starting crying. Thinking of her already "leaving" had my heart hurting. My little girl that will be 2 in 1 month is being considered for a school program. It's only 2 days a week for 3 hours. That is equal to my other kids when they went to preschool, when they were 4. I know this could be good for her and what a great opportunity it would be. Hopefully the 7 months I have to think about this, I will not be crying, I will be excited, but I doubt it. Then they brought up the bus. I just laughed, she can't walk yet. They said oh that's okay we stroll them up the bus in their stoller and the load them on. Which is funny since I just started letting my 7 and 8 year old ride the bus! To no avail if she goes to school I can definately say she will not be riding the bus. I just wish I knew the best thing to do for her, let her go or keep her at home just one more year????
