Mira has been having a great week - lots of smiling, giggling, and being in a great mood all around. The weather has been great, so we have been able to spend a lot of time at the park and have the windows open at night (with the attic fan on it seems to help Mira sleep better) which is a bonus. Mira has been able to make it to hippotherapy for three weeks in a row with out getting rained out! She has been doing really well on the horse, yet still being very particular about facing forward.

Mira's skin has cleared up dramatically since we started giving her acidophilus every day. I don't know what it is about probiotics, but if we stop giving it to her, the rash and irritation comes back the next day. You have to love the friendly bacteria. This rash on her face has been around for a long, long time and it worsens when she is rolling around on the floor.

Speaking of rolling, we have been spreading a quilt out on the floor for her every day and she loves having roll time. The trouble is, she is getting increasingly quick and will end up on the hardwood floor in no time. Sarah also ordered a swing online that we are going to start using, in an effort to get her excited about moving around. She is constantly moving and squirming and we want her to be able to be as active as possible out of her chair and not be on the floor so much. We occasionally put her in the swing at the park, but she can only lean forward and it's a lot of work for her to keep her head up and forward in those swings. This swing is in more of a reclined position so hopefully it will work better.

Other than that, not much else happening here. Still seeing some head drops and other quirks, but nothing major with Mira. Sarah is really exhausted these days, hitting the last month before the baby gets here!

Great to hear that Mira is doing so well. Glad the medicine cleared up her face...I know you were concerned about that.

Thank you so much for the card, Gift card, and Muffins. Very sweet to think of us!

Love the new pictures! Glad all is 'well'. Try and rest before the new little one arrives!
