See that container she's holding? According to the nutritional information on the back, it holds 80 calories, and approximately 3/4 cup of Cheerios....Maryam ate the whole thing today!!! AND, she had half of another one!!!! AND she drank 2 whole Honey Bear Cups!!! WHAT A DAY!
She basically carried the container around all day saying "more peace" and doing the signs for both...when she had both hands free.
The best part is, she swallowed almost all of them! I didn't have to dowse her shirt with Spray N Wash with Resolve Power because there was nothing on it! She requested, chewed and swallowed about a cup of Cheerios today! Hooray!
And on another note, Maryam started counting today. Earlier in the day I was decorating the house for Christmas and I was putting bows up. She walked up to my chair and grabbed the pipe cleaners and started counting them! There were four pipe cleaners and she counted all four of them! It was SO cute. Later in the evening she counted five Cheerios on the table and after that she counted 6 flowers I painted on the wall in her bathroom. And then during her breathing treatment she counted her 6 breaths both times. My crazy little baby is counting. She amazes me more and more with each new day. I have the best job in the world!!!!
