Mia communicates in her own groovy way

My parents are here this week (they arrived on Wednesday), and although they haven't kept us too busy, it's been tough to sit down and update. Here's a short tidbit:

Mia is still eating poorly. We're seeing about her medicine, which hasn't helped very much, and we've been reading up on the medication she is on. But that's for another day.

When she does eat, we try to encourage her so that she thinks it's cool. I have been telling her that she is a good girl when she eats well, and she finds that fun. This week I said to her, "Who's a good girl?" and she raised her hand and said something that sounded suspiciously like "good girl." It was two syllables and there were two "g" sounds in there, so I choose to believe that's what she was saying. It's very cute. So now I try to ask her who's a good girl when she eats well, and she smiles her big beautiful smile and raises her hand. She likes being a good girl. Too bad she doesn't eat like one all the time, but we're working on that.
