It feels really weird to have officially deactivated my LJ account. Really weird. At least I was able to save everything (thanks, Dreamwidth!) so that's something. But man, end of an era, indeed.

It's super-late and I've had WAAAAAAAY too much wine while sitting around with my sister-in-law J chatting about everything under the sun. She's great. But yeah, too much wine. *Just* as I was about to go to bed at 1:05 a.m. my son woke up and charged into our room to sleep on my side of the bed. Dammit. I was gonna sleep there.

So we're having MDR evaluated by Child & Family Services of Illinois to see if he's developmentally delayed, or if he has speech delay. He's not talking much. J thinks he's just stubborn and lazy, which could entirely be the case, but better safe than sorry. We'll see what the therapists have to say after observation. He's supposed to have two meetings before May 18: one with a speech therapist and one with a developmental therapist. Neither have called yet. Hopefully that will happen soon.

After several nights in a row of not sleeping AT ALL, I finally convinced my husband to let me split the kids' bedrooms up. I think MDR wakes VEE up and vice versa. Having one or BOTH kids in our room at night is too much. So maybe if they have their own space it will be better.

Anyway, enough time has passed that maybe I'll be able to go in and take MDR out of our bed and back to his own and get some sleep. Maybe...

It's great that you're having him checked out. You're a good mom.

*hugs* It's tough being a parent, and you're doing a great job being his advocate. I'm sending good vibes that MDR is being stubborn, and there are no developmental delays.
