This month Daniela was still hitting like a maniac but with some reading and encouragement to use her words, she has significantly stopped hitting every moment. With our patience and understanding, we have turned a corner with her. I also read that my reaction to her fuels her fight or flight. I choose everyday to calm down and when I am raising my voice a bit louder than need be, Raul is there to let me know to bring it down.
We met up with our family Maribel, Lillian, Mary, Theresa, David, Milta and Jayda at my mom’s house. They were here celebrating my grandmother’s 90th birthday. We were busy with work and thankfully had a good month. We met Elena and Nick who were great to be around during the fourth of July. Milta and Jayda spent some time with us in Isla Verde and we had a goodtime swimming and playing in the sand. Jayda drove our dog nuts but it was fun to spend time with her.
Daniela charmed everyone in my family. We also had Grandma Sylvette visiting Ponce. We went down to see her once and since she is still around will go back down to say goodbye.
Daniela read two letters in the sign Doral which is a bank we go to and were passing by. As we were stopped at a light, she said, “Momma, O, A” And when I looked at what she was pointing at, she was definitely recognizing her letters thanks to Agapita videos and myself.
Daniela had her first dentist appointment and she did great. She helped the Dental Technician brush her teeth. It went smoother than what I thought.
She continues to sing and dance to the Disney movies we buy her. And she has such a great memory for learning. Her uncle gave her a puzzle of the states and she has put that puzzle together a dozen times. She knows where CT is in the New England states piece.
She has been going to the gym with Raul which gives me a break to do somethings around the house. She is writing with all sorts of utensils pens makers and pencils. And added a new design to our new bedsheets. LOL
