Ducks in a row

Today and tomorrow we will be working to get all things ready for our trip to Cleveland. Kylie's neuro there wanted to see her back in 6 months for a follow-up, and the time has arrived.

We are anxious to meet with him and show off Kylie and how far she has come! We do hope he is as pleased as we are...heck, we hope he is beside himself with how great she is doing!

We will be leaving via airplane on Thursday morning and our apptmt is on the 28th. It was in our original plans to drive, but that all changed last week. You see, Matt was laminating some pics for a social story that we created for Kylie to prepare her for our trip. We had a pic of her in the driver's seat of Matt's truck with Elmo beside her, and we had pics of when we were there for her last time with grandma, grandpa, and Uncle Joey. We wanted her to become familiar with their faces, to help lessen any anxiety she may have with being in a new place.

Anyhow, as Matt was working on those, one of his co-worker's asked if they were recent pics of Kylie. He told her what he was working on, and before he knew it she told him to send her the details of our trip and she used her Southwest Rewards to get us tickets! Wow, that is so awesome!

We have been working since then to modify our schedule of what we will be doing there, and all that we will need for a plane ride. I do hope and pray that it goes well. Honestly, I think no matter what, it will be better than 16 hrs in a car watching Yo Gabba Gabba!

Our neighbors are also giving us their iPod Touch to borrow with games and fun things for kids on it. So we will have that, our portable dvd player, and some new books and plenty of snacks. I think/hope those help get us through. Oh, and perhaps we will get some friendly neighbors that will enjoy playing peek-a-boo with Kylie too :)
