That's how Mommy said why Miss Robin came today. It was her regular time, but we didn't do the regular stuff. She said it was time for an eval-you-ashun. All I know is that they wanted me to do stuff, but they didn't help me this time. Usually when Mommy says it's time to practice rolling, she tries to get me to watch a toy or something to get me going. I know this is what she wants, but I don't like being on my belly, so I just play where I am and don't roll over. Then Miss Robin or Mommy will help me by starting to put my leg over me to tell me to go. I try to make my back hard and my legs straight to not go over, but they always win in the end, and I flop over.

Today, though, they didn't help me. They just talked to me and asked me to do it. They tried to make me look at toys to get me started, but I don't really care that much about toys. So I just did what I like to do.

Mommy wasn't very happy that I was being difficult, she said. But I just like what I like, and I guess I get that from Pop too. When where you are is ok, why work hard for somewhere else? Mommy says it is because there are even better places and things that I will like so much more, but I don't know if I want to work that much for it.

Miss Robin did make me work a little, and I really don't like this one at all.

I hope next time we go back to doing fun stuff when Miss Robin comes. I did hear her tell Mommy that I need to stop looking at my hands so much. Something about that it's making my eyes strong in the wrong place. I don't know about that, but I guess Miss Robin has never looked at her hands!


  1. Don't you just love it when they don't corporate during things like that?!

    Joey ALWAYS looks at his hands, he's so fasinated with them!!

  2. Not cooperating is Delphine's favorite part of therapy :) She does all of her therapy exercises all the time on her own or with us, but the moment an actual therapist shows up..forget it!

    Delphine looked at her hands a lot too - she's recently decided there are many other things to look at.

  3. Hi to all. Keep up the good work, Nebraska. Even though I won't see you and your mommy at Dr. Yoe's office any more, I will still ck your blog daily. I miss you and your mom already. You're a very special girl to me! Give your mom a hug for me!

  4. Miss Jessica, Miss Melissa--I think that Joey and Delphine are super smart. Hands are the best!

    Miss Amiee--I'm so glad you will still check on me. We went to get on the silly scale the other day and you weren't there. So I was sad, but Mommy says you'll get to spend more time with your little guy since you're closer to home, so it's a good thing.

  5. oh evaluation days! LOL That's when the child always does the complete opposite of what you want them to do!

    I've never heard that before about looking at hands...I thought every baby went through a stage where their hands are the most fascinating things; sounds like typical development to me!

  6. Always these evaluations... It can be frustrating at times. But then those spurs (that everyone else described to me and I never believed in) DOES happen and you live off that for months :-)
    She is such a darling int he pics!


Be sure to leave a note so Mommy can read them to me each day!! (Sorry to add the moderation, but we were getting spammed!!) Thank you!
