Every now and then, I outdo myself with my cooking. I don't do it on purpose, but all of a sudden as I am putting food on the table, it occurs to me...
At least for that meal, I am the QUEEN of the monochromatic meals!!
I really should take a picture when it happens 'cuz it's pretty comical.
A few weeks ago, it was orange.
Sloppy joes, carrots, cantelope. I think we even had orange jello for dessert.
Tonight, it was white.
Fish, tator tots, cucumbers (in sour cream), and cauliflower.
What should it be next time?? Any ideas?
Ok, on to the more important stuff. Matthew's hanging out at Grandmama and Grandpa Jerry's house for a couple of days - enjoying time with Sabrina and Guillaume, playing with Suki, and having a blast! He was so cute yesterday morning. I told him that Grandmama was coming to pick him up so that he could spend the night there. He got this big grin on his face and said, "Perfect!!"
Maia's here at home with us. I took her to therapy yesterday. Linda (the PT) hadn't seen her for two weeks and said that she's making "huge progress!" Maia and I showed Linda how she is now starting to walk up the stairs with help. She's also less fearful when I attempt to walk down the stairs with her.
Amy (the OT) worked on grasp (Maia still struggles with holding on to anything with her right hand) and also trying to keep her focused. Right now, attention span is only a few seconds on any given item. We've got to work on that at home, too. She gave me a suggestion for some baby food items to try at home to see if Maia would start feeding herself. When dinner was over tonight, I got out the banana rusk crackers. And here is what happened after I put one in Maia's left hand.
She ate nearly the whole thing by herself which was pretty exciting!
