Giggles, soft serves and water balloons
Anastasia smiles so beautifully but it's very hard to catch on camera.
And then Hannah decided to have some fun with Asher too.
Charis is a Speech and Language student who has come to spend a couple of days with us to help out with Asher. The children enjoyed playing Chinese checkers with her this evening. Asher had an episode at around 8 though (needing medication to stop it) so that ended their game a bit early.
Once the rest of the children were in bed Brendon and I enjoyed learning about Charis' family and her Christian faith. We had a lovely evening of fellowship.
Friday 29th: I was pleased to finally get a video of Asher singing with one of her Bible DVDs. So lovely to hear her singing.
Anastasia cried a little and so Asher came over and gave her a kiss. It was so sweet I got my phone (camera) and asked her to give another kiss so I could get a photo. So sweet. And for the first time ever, Asher then looked at Anastasia and pinched her nose (what she loves to do when naming parts of the face). :-)
I would let them eat a whole small one (like this) or half a bigger one at a time. After a couple of days I realized this was not a good idea for Hannah and she has had to have a break. The salicylates were just too high for her with such high intake and it affected her emotionally.
She has started pushing herself around with her feet. She moved quite a bit in the 15 minutes she was lying there.
Right: When he finally came down our street. So excited.
