Ella had a better day.

Her OT session was cancelled because the therapist’s son is sick. We hope he feels better soon. The lack of a formal therapy session just gave Ella and I an opportunity to try something different. I tried to place her in the chair while I gathered some supplies, and she started to fuss. She does not want to be in the high chair because she associates it with eating. So, I just held her on my hip, grabbed food, put some on my finger and would touch it to her lips. All of this while walking around the kitchen area and talking to Terri. It was enough of a distraction and something different for Ella. She did not welcome my finger touching her lips with food, but she did not melt down and only retched one time. We felt that was a successful session. Later in the day, the Bun had a great physical therapy session too, as evidenced by the photos!

Once the afternoon passed, all of the girls got into the car and took a field trip to accessorize. We drove to 2 local show stores and browsed. Terri talked to Ella and explained to her about the importance of a good pair of shoes. Based on the smiles, the Bun was receptive and was taking mental notes for later. And Ella wore her cute silver sandals and kicked her legs happily while roaming around in the stroller, looking up at the lights, and catching smiles in the full-length mirrors. All in all, a fun day for the girls!

Psalm 26:3 (NIV)
For your love is ever before me,
and I walk continually in your truth.
