I had some baking to catch up on this evening so I made Amish Friendship banana and blueberry breads. I also made homemade salsa with the tomatoes and green peppers from my garden :o) mmmmm, good stuff.
Things are going great! "A2" is a little lower functioning than we had thought but she's just a honey and is so cute and sweet. She loves to be held and to give hugs. They had said that she used sippy cups but I can't get her to touch one so we are back to bottles for a bit until we can get her back on them. She doesn't finger feed so she has to be spoon fed but we'll work on that also. They had said that she was 45 lbs but I knew the first time I held her that she wasn't because "P" is 45 lbs and "J" is 35 lbs. I finally weighed her and she's only 35 lbs! She's very thin but so is her little brother and he's well fed. I think it's because they don't stop moving and burn a lot of calories. We'll do our best to fatten her up but I'm friends with her brother's adoptive Mom and it sounds like it's a lost cause, lol.
The kids are really loving her and so are we. She's already becoming a Daddy's girl. She doesn't have very good vision but when she hears Daddy's voice she'll go right to him with a big smile on her face. She's sleeping well and seems to enjoy her bed. She didn't have a lot of floor time or toys at her foster home so it's different for her to not be in her wheelchair all the time. We don't use the chairs in our house so she's been scooting around on her butt and exploring everything. She's finally figuring out what to do with the toys :o)
It's so shocking to see "P" with her because she knows that she's a special needs person too. She'll go to her and give her a toy or hold a book for her. "A2" will try to crawl on "P" and she'll just sit there and look at me like "what the heck"? It's funny seeing "P" being the "big" sister and being the higher functioning one. I think I have another Mother Hen on my hands, lol.
