Sarah's new phrase. This one totally stumped me. Took me several days to figure it out. Can you figure it out? Come on give it a try!!! I will give you a clue. If I ask Sarah to repeat something, she will say "ga-fidid-id"(all together as one word). She will also say this if I want her to name something or use her words to get something. Got it? Welcome to my world of translation!!! Sometimes we are all frustrated by the time we get it! I have the habit of saying "just forget it" and going on. Sarah has picked up on my habit apparently!!! *sigh* now to break her of this habit and get her to repeat things and use her words! Speech is probably our most frustrating area right now. We hear her using words on and off, just not regular or on command. She refused to talk to Irene the last time she tested her and tested out worse than the time before. I know she understands, just can't get her to tell us. Then out of the blue she will name something for someone that I do not know she knows. Last time we were at the pediatrician she picked up a book and started naming things to Dr. Keown. I was amazed. Of course when asked what something was, she refused. I know this is part of the apraxia, but it is just frustrating. I just wonder how much she really knows and just can not communicate to us.
We are a family of five who have been blessed by God. Doug and I were married in 2002 and immediately wanted to start a family. God blessed us with our son Elijah in 2003 through the beauty of birth. Elijah loves to play outdoors and to play with his Nitendo. We were blessed with Sarah in 2007 through the beauty of adoption. Sarah has Down syndrome, but is not defined by it. She is proving all of the statistics wrong and is growing and achieving at a record pace. We were blessed with Isaac in 2010 to complete our family. He is also adopted and has Down syndrome, excited to watch him grow!! Doug is a utility forester with the local utility company. I, Robyn, am a stay at home mom who is never at home. I am a Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor and I love my oils! Elijah in the sixth grade and loves all things mindcraft and Star Wars. Sarah is 9 and in the 2nd grade. Isaac is almost 5 and doing preschool work. We are a homeschooling family that lives life to the fullest. I love my life and I am so blessed.
