Mommy Loves Temper Tantrums.....Sometimes!

Makenzie started the day in a fit of laughter when her brother walked into the room to say good morning. What a nice way to start the day!

We finished up another intensive round of ABM today. I have lost count on what number this is but she continues to make improvements. The biggest thing I have noticed from this session is the movement increase in her arms and continued improvements in her oral motor skills! All great stuff!

Another amazing thing Makenzie has been doing very consistently is identifying people by name with an eye gaze and smile.

Tonight when I was getting ready to put her to bed she could hear Josh in his room. From where we were standing he wasn't visible to the eye. I asked her where Josh was and she tried to find him looking a bit confused. I then told her that he was in his room and she turned, looked right at his doorway and smiled! New, New, New, and just AMAZING!!

She also had several good temper tantrums this evening! I think this is also great! I know I am strange but I love to see Makenzie's personality! Some things just didn't change! I told her is was time for a bath and took her upstairs. The second that we hit the bedroom she started just a wailing!

I asked her if she wanted to play with her brothers and the waterworks changed instantly to a huge smile! Can you say spoiled?! I told her we had to take a bath first and then she could play with her brothers when we were done. I laid her on the bed to take her clothes of and the waterworks started again.

I called my youngest in to distract her and once again... water works off... smile on! Then it was into the bathroom same story and again when I laid her down to sleep! Oh, does she ever love her big brothers! Oh, do they ever love her just as much back!

What a great day! Tomorrow is going to be crazy... so much for Sunday being a day of rest! Oh well!

Thanks for all of the thoughts and prayers!

Please keep praying for our current fundraiser! Pray that God would bless us with the means to get Makenzie to Costa Rica again!! There is less then 2 months until our scheduled flight into the San Jose airport takes off!

Please also pray for our trip to the ABM Center next month!

We have a busy couple of months ahead of us but I am so excited! Makenzie has improved so much since the first Stem Cell treatment and the start of ABM!
