Ok, for real, here it is (at Starbucks):
Speaking of Starbucks, you may have noticed that you can see a giant Starbucks cup in almost all of my stroller pictures. That's a reusable iced coffee cup, and we make the coffee at home. I'm not buying coffee (and disposing of plastic cups) everyday. Here's Maya, and my cup, at the dog run:
Playing with the new camera has taught me about angles. Here she looks like she's at a park in the middle of a big city:
While here she could be swinging in a much smaller town
But really, there's just one big skinny building, and the shots were a few seconds apart.
Around 7:25 every night, we say "Maya, do you want to watch "Baby Signing Time?" And she does this:
Everyday I wear 3 rings. Last night I made pizza, and before I started kneading the dough I threw the rings in an empty baby food container. This morning when I went to put them on, I found a fourth. One of these things is not like the other . . . (Dave made it pre-work)
Maya tried to feed it a veggie stick.
We're working on veggie sticks in feeding therapy. She wants to do it all by herself (which has varying degrees of success).
While I made her breakfast, she went to work unfolding the laundry:
(An aside: A few posts back, I mentioned my "throw yourself into the universe" theory (henceforth TYITU), but I haven't had time to extrapolate at all. Way back when I wrote about the not knowing, a few interesting things happened. 1. I was forwarded an article from the Wall Street Journal about a family dealing with a lack of diagnosis for their son, and it brought to light how many people in the country struggle in that limbo situation. 2. In line with TYITU, I emailed the author of the article 3. She responded and pointed me towards an actual organization solely for families of kids who don't have diagnoses (SWAN . . . "syndromes without a name"). That's what the "swan" tag on some of my posts stands for.)
