If I come up with a nonsensical rhyming title, then it totally makes my jumbled update-about-everything post appear cohesive, right? Right.
1. Zoo: We went to the Bronx Zoo the other day and had a fun time. Well, Dave had a fun time:
Fun at the petting zoo:
Miss Maya is attempting vertical movement more and more! Here, some teetery walking holding on to only 1 hand!:
It may not be graceful looking, but who cares . . .
2.Hair: My hair continues to fall out at an alarming rate:
Ok, it's not quite that bad :) Actually, I convinced Dave to cut my hair (with the balding patches, I've been hiding from salon folks----I don't want anyone messing with my hair, and I don't want lots of people coming to stare at it). So we did a chop at home:
(not the most glamorous pic, but you get the idea)
3. CHEW!!!!!!!! This is the best update by far (and if you check our Facebook page, you're already in the loop on this one). Maya has come so far with feeding therapy that today Erica (her feeding therapist) said "No more jars (baby food)----she's an eating girl now!" So, in theory, Maya could only be eating normal food now (with some exceptions---she can't do very hard things, like apples. She can't manage something very complicated, like rice. And she can't really regulate how much she gets in her mouth at a time, so we still have to feed her most pieces by hand.) She's an eating girl!!!!!! Real food!!!
Here, she digs into dinner (yogurt, blueberries, some snacky stuff, and a cereal bar--not pictured). The sushi belongs to Dave & me:
4. Where? We're going away on Saturday and Maya has been studying up for the trip. Here, Dave helps her to plan our week's worth of activities. See if you can figure out where we're heading :)
