Wednesdays mean...

OT with Amy! Our OT is so nice - she is pretty much a speech therapist, occupational therapist and physical therapist all in one. Riley is the only child Amy sees outside of school so we were lucky we found her through a friend of a friend. Yesterday she worked on having Riley push a button when she wanted more food and Riley did so well! She pressed the button all on her own several times, and then would immediately open her mouth for the yogurt. Plus an added bonus: Riley keeps her hand by the button and not in her mouth - yay!

We also did some swinging since it was so nice out - Riley loves to swing!

And then we practiced walking outside. Riley did so great on the uneven ground and only fell once but the grass is very forgiving so she didn't get hurt or cry.

Riley was nice enough to take her hand out of her mouth long enough for me to get a picture of her pretty smile.

And one more just because I think it's cute. :-)

You are right - VERY CUTE! I love that she is pressing the button and opening her mouth. She "gets" it. Our girls are smart....don't ever doubt that for a second!
We like to swing too but our swing is currently under a few inches of snow...bummer.
My grandpa from GA is visiting this weekend - he is in for a shock!
