What does your baby's room look like?
Our once cute nursery now looks like a physical therapy center! The first day Kendall got her "little room" (the white thing with the resonance board...its supposed to give her a place to play where she can feel her movements and discover toys....she doesn't love it as much as I thought she would) Justin said "most little girls have a dollhouse...Kendall gets a science experiment."
We have accumulated a lot of things from our wonderful VI and Orientation and Mobility teachers through the school district! ECI has recently dropped off a big Special Tomato chair, that Kendall is starting to get used to. But her favorite toys continue to be her baby doll that sneezes, cries, says momma, and wears Kendall's old glasses (pictured to the right) as well as Rody. The donkey looking thing that I ordered from a Special Needs catalog and paid way too much for. This thing is amazing. It serves as a riding toy, encourages tummy time, and Kendall loves to grab his ears. I also think we've bought pretty much every toy that lights up and makes noise. (Kamden thinks the closer you put something to her face, the more likely she is to notice it!)
So while her room doesn't exactly look like it would fit in a Pottery Barn catalog, it serves its purpose. We often have all four of us, and the dogs, in there watching Kendall and laughing on the floor together. Kamden loves to get down on the mat and read to Kendall too. Nonna works in there with her every single day for at least 45 minutes listening to the CD we made her on her Hello Kitty CD player! Grandad is pictured above filling in while Nonna's out!
Who would have thought this would end up being my favorite room in the house?
