Can’t believe this little lover is 9 months today. Leilani Sol you are my sunshine on a cloudy day. She’s always on the move and wants to know what everyone around her is doing. She’s amazing!! Leilani Sol had her cardiologist follow up on Monday and he’s still very happy with how everything is looking. We still are monitoring her leaky mitral valve, but the doc believes the leak hasn’t worsened. Starting Monday Leilani will be off all her medications!! Yay! We are so happy and relieved that she continues to thrive! 🌼🌈@leilanisol.and.thesea @aperson1569
Growth is a process. Learn to let go of the things that weigh you down. Embrace change. I pray that all chains be broken so that all that is yours can be received. #GodsDaughter#WarriorPrincess#Palante
Yesterday ended well, after the worry how to get M to hospital appointment. After having an appointment with Cahms and realising there was noway M was going to get to hospital appointment, due to the anxiety Monster taking over. After calling the hospital it was agreed the doctor would call. After all the stress and anxiety linked to the hospital, I was very grateful to receive a call from the hospital. M has been seeing this Dr for about 8years so she knows her well and was abled to give advice and do prescription for her. Must say I was really pleased with the understanding of all staff with regard to M difficulties in leaving the house, and how they all could help her. THANK YOU NHS.
Today has been quite a easy day, with the exception of trying to get JT out of bed. I'm sure lots of u have the same challenges, JT struggles to go to sleep, regularly walking around the house at midnight, sometimes even later, even going down and raiding the fridge. That was until JT was prescribed melatonin (aka circaden), when our life's change, he we to to bed at 10pm and woke up 7.30, no longer tired at school and our fridge still had food in it in the morning. It was our miracle medication, that was until I run out, I've been everywhere trying to get his repeat prescription. Will finally be getting it beginning of next week. A week without sleep makes me grumpy Mum, and the fridge empty.
M is still struggling with the anxiety monster. She is being our warrior princess trying to fight him of, playing her music, and dancing, fighting the ever present anxiety monster, by going out, enjoying herself. Never let anxiety stop you being you, love yourself.
Tomorrow JJ has his Autism assessment, I will finally find out if all 3 of our children have ASD, JJ has other diagnosis including ADD atm it's just a nervous wait to see if he has ASD as well, he has alot of ASD traits, we find out tomorrow.
Our first born, Paisley Dean. I dare say she's my mini me. Girl has a heart for blessing others. The favor on her life is evident. She also has a flare for the dramatics. This girl is going to have me participating in many come to Jesus meetings. But, she's growing into her exquisite self. It's a beautiful thing. 💖
I asked her to smile for a picture for me, so I could show off her cute little outfit. This is what I got. A silly face. 😏 But, that's her. And, that's exactly what I want her to be, always. I want her to feel that she can express herself. To be confident. To be able to always flash the camera a silly face. To love life. To grab it by the horns and embrace it. To change norms. To tear down walls and lies. To be a leader.
And, you know where that starts? In the home. That starts with me. You see, this picture is not just a picture. It's a representation of me giving up some control. Even if it's just a little. I struggled with that outfit choice this morning. I even told her at one point to go change her shirt. It didn't match. And, you can't wear those leggings! That doesn't go together. Then, it hit me.... Aren't you always telling her to be independent and different? Don't you tell her not to go along with the crowd? And, what about being a leader instead of a follower? Are you allowing her to do that? Are you practicing what you preach? Are your actions reflecting your words OR are you just talking? And, would you prefer a picture with a fake smile & a forced pose? Something you told her to do or a moment frozen in time that showcases her & her true beautiful, budding personality? (That's A LOT of questions, but exactly how my brain works. 😀)
Dreamers, doers, movers & shakers, mighty women of history, artists, musicians, worldwide evangelists, authors, princesses, creators, world changers, Paisley... they all began the process of finding themselves somewhere. Maybe it was because their mama let them choose and wear their own outfit. 🌈
