Mommy's starting to feel better, even though she still doesn't look very good. So Grammy went to meet up with Papa and the aunties and uncle today at Aunt Hyla's for the weekend. We had a good times this week learning new things and playing with some fun stuff. Thanks for coming to play with me, Grammy!
Grammy let me play with all kinds of things that I never played with before. Like she showed me how to play peek-a-boo with this box, and I thought it was fun. I even put the box back up on my head by myself.
She also let me play with stuff from the kitchen like pots and spoons and fun things that make noise. I didn't know there was so much stuff in there! She showed me how to put things IN the pot and take them OUT of the pot. And I even did it by myself. Miss Judy will be really happy when we tell her. We'll have to see if I feel like showing her...I just don't know.
Another big thing we did was practice tasting food. Grammy would taste something to show me how, then she would let me lick one. I've been doing that a little for about a week or so, but today I decided to try it myself. Grammy was letting me try chips called Do-ree-toes. I like the same things my Daddy likes, pretty much, so she thought this might be one I would like. And I thought it was yummy! Then she put one down in front of me, and I just picked it up and licked on it. Mommy almost fell out of her chair!
(Mommy note: Just a reminder...Braska has not, until last Saturday, allowed any hard item--chip, cracker, puff, etc--to even come near her mouth. Then last Saturday, she licked a cracker when it was offered several times. She's done so a few times this week as well. But she has NEVER taken food to her mouth purposefully on her own....this is BIG!)
Mommy tried to take some movie of me licking the chip, but it was kind of dark. She said she didn't want to turn the light on in case I changed my mind when I saw what I was doing and stopped.
Today it was playgroup day 3. Daddy took me by himself since Mommy still wasn't all better. We had a fun time. He tried to put me on a thing called a slide, but I did not think it was fun. Then they had this big squishy tube that Daddy put me in. I could kind of stand up and lean at the same time.
Daddy put the camera in with me so you could see what I was seeing. He's silly like that.
