Kildarton, Signs and a bit of the ol' Reachin'

So Ava finally starts "early services" in Kildarton House in Glenageary next Monday. Myself, Ava and Duffo are super (duper) lucky to live not a quarter mile from Kildarton! We are also only a mile from Carmona St John of Gods so every day we see people with Down Syndrome (of all ages) coming and going. We also have a superb social worker, physios and everyone at Kildarton is really cool.

Kildarton is superb, it even has a beautiful garden designed by Diarmuid Gavin. We did a quick visit there a while back and it was very emotional to see all these gorgeous kids sitting in a circle singing thinking Ava will be one of them soon. They had an open day and we got to hang out with other parents and being Dublin we recognised some of them.

Also today we got our first 'signs' to do with Ava. They are:-
  • Dad
  • Mum
  • Thank You
  • Hi
Finally we are trying to get madam to roll over and are getting her to reach for rattles and stuff. She is doing well but prefers to keep pulling up her jumper :)
