Support Make-A-Wish

I just got an e-mail from a friend whose girl, "Super C" was able to be granted a wish through the Make-A-Wish foundation. C is even featured on the Make-A-Wish website. She appears on the homepage in a blue swimsuit & red chair. You may have to refresh it to catch her. C's story is shown in the Recent Wishes section ("I wish to go to Walt Disney World Resort" ).
The flyer below is for a Gala in our area supporting M-A-W and not only that, C's mom Abigail is a guest speaker to let guests know what their trip meant to their family. The beautiful Super C earned her angel wings this March. Please support Make-A-Wish!!!

Therapy with P.M.

I thought I'd post some of P.M.'s recent session. This was July 30th. She was recovering from the Kinesio tape rash, so she has nothing on her right arm. We usually use at least the tape during the sessions. Her OT has fun toys and good ideas for making her feel she is still playing while she does her therapy...and she's very patient! Since P.M. has become comfortable here, she exerts her will more often, deciding when she's done with a toy or cleaning up. Maybe thats just her being two.
Her hand strength has improved quite a bit along with dexterity and the ability to open her fingers up. The problem is that unless prompted, she will not use that hand.

This one is good for seeing just what she still has to work on. Her large motor skills are getting better, but her pincher grasp is still very weak. At the end of the clip I look up to talk to her OT and she quickly uses her other hand to pick up the beans!

Nursing Bras....

I found something I need to get! Problem is these super cute bras apparently only come in A-C cup sizes...what nursing woman is an A cup?!?!


Would I not look awesome in this bra? Ok, ideally I would immediately loose all baby weight plus an additional 15 pounds and numerous stretch marks....but cute, right?!


Here is the link to the store:


The bra has snaps along the bottom to let you adjust the size as you lose weight after baby. Cool! I'll have to order and post what I think. I love the colors, it's nice to find cute nursing bras that don't look like your grandma's undies!

Belly shots!

I had some requests for photos of me.... I have no idea why :) SO here they are! Yes, A.M., with some direction, was the photographer. Yes, I photoshopped out some stretch marks...no one needs to be subjected to that! I thought they turned out well, anyway!
