We met with the occupational therpist today and had a long talk about Ellie and how she is doing in the hospital and some of theings that we cando to improve her development and avoid some of the pitfalls that happen to kids who spend a lot of time in the NICU. She showed us some positions to hold Ellie other than the crook of our arm that takes the pressure off the ack of her head. Apparently with their very soft heads, some babies can get flat heads so on to her side and belly she goes! She loves the side action and she and I spent a long time this AM with her on the side. Turns out she likes Johnny Cash as well as the others.

It is no surprise that the best advice from the therapist is to spend lots of time with her. Good for us that that was our plan, too. Posted by Picasa
