PT exercises and messy eating

I finally found an exersaucer I thought would be great for Gracie, I just had to wait to find a good deal on KSL. People were asking anywhere from $75-$50, but holding out paid off and I got it for $30. I had to spend almost 2 1/2 hours cleaning it but once it was ready, Gracie loved it! It has a seat that rotates 360 degrees, and that also moves back and forth on a track when she finally gets strength in her legs. The floor of the saucer is piano keys that make music and light the keyboard on top up. I'm hoping that she will gain trunk strength and build up strength in her leg muscles too.

I love the last picture, though Jason hates it, but it makes me laugh so much. Gracie is so funny.

The hair is so funny because she pulled out her ponytail.

Gracie usually doesn't mind sitting up, but today she just hated it---oh well, she still needs to do the exercises.

Gracie still isn't eating much but she loves to play with her food. Today it was bananas and cookies. I was nieve enough to think that she actually ate some of the food she had in her mouth, but she was storing it in her cheek. I took her up for a bath and when I laid her down to undress her she started gagging and chocking....
I love her silly and michevious looks

That is a very cool exersaucer. Owen would have loved it. We're still working on building up leg strength at 18 months.. it will come. It's a blessing really, I can barely keep up with the feeding pump and oxygen tangling up as he buttscoots all over. I can't imagine the tangles when he walks. Aye aye aye.

Grace looks great!!
