Oct. 17- Oct 21, 2011
As Daddy wrote, we went to CHOP on Monday to see a Cardiologist, Neurologist, Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist, and a Speech Therapist. Since we had such an exciting day Monday, Scarlett and I did not do too much throughout the week. We stayed home and rested Tuesday through Thursday. While we were home we did some reading and Scarlett has really taken to it! She loves to read and seems to already have a preference on books. Her favorite right now is "Llama Llama Red Pajama". The other day I tried to start with a different book and she cried, but as soon as she saw me pick up Llama Llama all was right with the world again. Since our little girl has taken such an interest in books, and we don't have an abundant collection here, we took our first trip to the library on Friday. She seemed to really love the library and was very content looking around at all the books. While we were there I noticed that there was going to be a story time for babies 0-24 months so Scarlett and I sat in to see what it was all about. Again Scarlett seemed to love story time! She was in awe watching all the bigger kids jump and dance to the music. Also during the class the librarian handed out props such as bells and scarfs for the kids to jingle and wave around. This too enchanted Scarlett. About half way through though poor little Scarlett had had all she could take, I looked down and she was zonked out! She was very sleepy the rest of the day! I think it may have been a bit much for her first trip to the library, but I think we will be going back every week! Although we may hold off on story times for a little while!
