10 months old, fish faces & upcoming appointments

Happy 10 month birthday, Maya!

Maya has started sucking on her lips and making fish faces, like this:

(disclaimer: THIS BABY IS NOT MAYA. I just googled to find a pic that showed the face.)
I think it has something to do with teething. She doesn't have any teeth yet, but you can feel 2 big bumps on her bottom gum where the first ones will be.
Upcoming Dr. visits (the next 2 weeks):
-Thurs (4/2): 10 month pediatrician visit
-Fri (4/3): Swallow study (at a hospital downtown). She will drink a barium-laced bottle (and possibly eat some food too) while getting x-rays done so that we can watch her eating process. It seems likely the her suck-swallow-breathe coordination is off, and this will let us know for sure.
-Mon (4/6): Big meeting with the developmental pediatrician to go over the results of all of the evaluations that have been done over the past 2 weeks.
