The cousins that play together.....

Look at Charlie sitting all big! Of course we dressed them similarly, both in their own signature color. Charlie in purple and Maryam in pink. Charlie does real good at mirroring Maryam, but Maryam won't copy Charlie...WE'VE TRIED!
Charlie scoots around on her tummy to pick up her toys and Maryam watches her then roles over on to her back.
Charlie ate ALL her food in a spoon and we thought, if we let Maryam watch, maybe she'll try, but I got a big look of, "no thank you mama!" But that's OK!! We're going to keep on trying!
Charlie started to fall and leaned on Maryam and a few seconds later we got.....
Feet in the air!!! So cute!
But seriously, Maryam had a REALLY good feeding session yesterday morning. She took just over a tsp of single grain rice cereal mixed with vanilla flavored Pediasure. She seemed to swallow it all. Of course getting it into her mouth was the same battle we fight every 4 hours, but once I got the food into her mouth she swallowed it instead of trying to spit it out. So, that might be a step in the right direction. However feedings 2 and 3 yesterday didn't go nearly as well!

Hello, Haven't read up on Maryam for about a week.Wow, so muc goes on in your day. The cousins look so adorable together! I told you that she would probably walk before she crawls. I think the tube and operations on her tummy have made it very sensitive. So if she walks that will be much better. Actually, you really don't want her on the floor with all the germs. She is a smart one. Congrats on her hearing test! Hope you have an enchanted Christmas and a wonderful New Year. Thinking of you always, Marietta
