My friend Michelle, her husband Jade and daughter Bryona
Yesterday, my friend from high school came to visit with her husband and daughter. It was so great to see them. Bryona is getting so big.
OT (occupational therapy) worked a little with Ava yesterday. She was stretching out the muscles in her hands when Ava got upset. She was wanting to suck on her fingers, so I put the binkie in her mouth and she started sucking on that instead. The OT asked if she has been sucking on her binkie much and I told her that she does well when she wants to but I think she prefers her fingers (she just truly started sucking on them yesterday). The OT then started working with her mouth and observing her suck reflex. She said that she thinks that Ava is ready to try a bottle. The OT that worked with Ava yesterday is not her regular OT, so she has to speak with the other and make sure she agrees. The doctor said that if they feel she is ready then there is no reason not to try. I am so excited. Keep it up baby girl...little steps in the right direction.
