IFSP & Hawaii Early Learning Program results

Just got done meeting w/Lowell's speech therapist & far northern regional center. we wrote up Lowell's IFSP (Individualized Family Service Plan, aka lots of goals for him for the next 6mths) & also got the results of his Hawaii Early Learning Profile from the Parent Infant Program, he's doing great!!!

Evaluated @28mths old
Gross Motor: 19-22mths
Fine Motor:23-25mths
Self Help:23-25mths

I would absolutely love to be able to scan in his reports onto this site so you all could read them (maybe someday soon i will be able to). :)

Until then the school district & far northern will be meeting with us again in the next 3 months to give us options as to what services the school district offers, which will be a slim to NOTHING for Lowell. He more than likely wont qualify for any services due to the fact they mainly just do speech therapy & he is doing VERY WELL with his speech. It's still nice to see what the options are out there though.

Recently I've been looking into different preschools & am still undecided as to when or where I would like Lowell to go. Not quite sure when is age appropriate for him to start going, guess i'll decide that when I'M READY ;)

Well I'm off to put Lowell down for a late nap, these meetings were a little later in the afternoon & once I got off work I kept him awake so he was able to "play" & learn new things w/the speech therapist. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! I'll update ya all with new pics SOON!

Lowell's Toy Story Themed 2nd Birthday!!

Lowell had a wonderful 2nd birthday party at Bille Park! Lots of friends & family came :) He enjoyed opening all his presents (especially his John Deere one) & had tons of fun hitting his "spaceship" pinata, & digging into his gigantic homemade cupcake!! Thank you everyone who was able to come, it truly meant so much to us!! :)

bidwell park

sunday (feb 28th) mark, lowell & i decided to meet up with a good friend of my sisters from school kristina, her daughter cabrie & their dog lucy, (&my sissy came too) we of course brought our st bernard gus as well. it was so much fun!! :) here are some pics of the kiddos.. it was SUCH A BEAUTIFUL DAY!! a perfect day to walk around the park & go to the kiddy park 'caper acres'. days like this make me realize how much i love living where we do, it is gorgeous outside, i love enjoying nature & so does lowell. he is such an outdoors boy (throws little fits when we try & bring him back inside).
