Getting Back To Normal...I Think

It has been a while since we all drove home as a family from Delaware so I thought I would post an update on here.  Things are slowly returning to normalcy in the Laurin household.  After spending two months away from home, young Wesley almost forgot that he had a house and toys and dogs here to play with.  He was so happy to be home in the first couple of days and so were Kaela and Sarah.

Kaela is getting better every single day.  She is able to sit up on her own and walk a little more each day.  She still needs help with some things like making it to the bathroom and getting dressed however I’m skeptical as to how much help she really needs.  Yesterday I was doing something in another room and I came out to see how Kaela was.  She had a whole bag of grapes from the refrigerator and she was busy munching on them on the couch.  William was sitting next to her and I told him how nice it was for him to get his sister things to which he replied “I didn’t get them, Kaela did.”  The little girl who nags me for 20 minutes to get her a snack out of the fridge one day secretly is able to do this on her own when she thinks I’m not available.

As Kaela heals she is in a process of re-learning how to do things in some ways.  Her body is a bit different than it was before she left for Delaware so she is finding new ways to move around and just do the things she was doing before.  We took a day trip to Oval Beach in Saugatuck, MI yesterday and Kaela was able to play in the sand.  She has been wanting to go to the beach for months and she finally got to do it.
