Despite a 2 year focus on OT and hand strength (which the OT attributes to incredibly bendy hyper flexible hands) Phoenix still cannot write with a pencil at all. They have introduced a AAC iPad for her to type sentences on. I think this is a great move and I am super excited to see what my girl can do to show her knowledge!
Phoenix has recently started to show an intense interest in wearing make up. Which shocks the heck out of me because I don't wear make up at all. Yesterday morning Phoenix went into my bathroom drawer, found an old mascara and tried to put it on her eyes. She's also been going into my bathroom and asking for make up for the last few weeks. Santa IS being asked for make up this year. I know she is 6, and others may not agree with this step, but if she wants to be a little girl and wear make up, I don't see the problem.

At a recent hearing test Phoenix did an amazing job and still has great hearing (which we suspected was the case)
Saturday play time with Ash L and Wren R while P was at home chilling on her ipad.
Jen got one nice picture of Wren while out at a DS dinner and dance.
Look at what a beauty she is destined to be!
And some painting pictures from recently
Ash here, lips pursed in concentration.
