From that photo, I can see why you'd think Ava might need PT. Do you suppose part of the issue may be that it just hurts for her to lift herself in that position? That uses the chest muscles a lot so that would be my thinking. I hate the idea of tummy time. I think babies develop those muscles better if they are held upright more rather than left laying on their tummies. I read an article a while back about how putting babies on their tummies actually hinders the development of those muscles that it's supposed to help. I can't remember the details now. Of course, that was for really young babies, less than 3 months old, I think.
I think when Sean gets home he will be doing most of his sleeping in the boys' room, hopefully with the boys. He snored so badly when he was home in November that there's no way he's sleeping with me unless he can do something about that. Sorry, hubby, but my sleep is interrupted enough from the kids. I don't need the added interruption of his snoring.
Carrie ~ That's how I ended up giving Dylan that bread. I forgot to have something plain for him to at least play with. It probably would have been better if I had given him some of the beans out of the soup.
here's what i've given him so far that he has rejected:
sweet potato with and without butter
acorn, butternut and spaghetti squash (not at the same time)
black eyed peas
things i didn't mean for him to eat that he seemed to like:
sea salt and rosemary/garlic crackers
rosemary and garlic bread
that donut piece he found on the floor
a sun chip
apparently, he likes salted things.
I forgot to mention that I practiced this back wrap today. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7i5I6cRf2o&feature=related It was actually easier and faster for me to do than the rucksack and felt a lot more comfortable and secure.
