Here is one of Maryam's SLP's Jennifer. This was an outing during an afternoon snack. As many of you know, Maryam LOVES to run. Jennifer used this to get her to drink more Pediasure! She'd get to run to the next crack in the sidewalk and then take 3 drinks, then start over again.
When Maryam didn't take a big enough drink she'd drink some more.
Here was the finish line, rock throwing. Maryam LOVES to throw rocks. If she drank enough, she got to go throw rocks. Learning by bribery. Hey! Whatever works, right?
We are Jennifer and Brett, mommy and Daddy to Maryam, the former 25w 2d micropreemie and blessing sent from heaven. We started this blog about Maryam to help save time and keep our families and friends updated on our little miracle baby. Its been really fun sharing her day to day progress and we've been getting loads of wonderful feedback. Thanks to all of you for checking up on her. We know that everyone's lives are busy, we love that you all take the time to see how she's doing. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
