A quick way to post a bit of my sweetness. Clockwise from top right:
*She wore this tiara all Sunday after making it from a tiara kit her Grandma G sent. It inspired her to start planning her birthday party (for August...), because it was obviously a perfect birthday girl crown. She has decided a flower party will be "really great", and you can see the pod flower bobby pins we started for the pinata...oh yes, plans are being made...
*Marian adding a red wagon full of produce to our window. She was still unhooked during her bath & enjoying a bit of freedom. And looking wee and cute: look at that little pink foot!
*Playing bingo. Every Tuesday, the Child Life Department broadcasts a bingo game over one of the hospital channels. Marian has won three times, netting a card game, a beanie baby, and (this is my score!) a whole case full of Webkins trading cards. She gave 18 packs to Audrey & kept 18 for herself...
*A good smiley baldie photo :). Marian is playing with patterns here, using mosaic bits (tumbled glass & tiny ceramic tiles) left over from a project with the art therapist. She also made 3 permanently-glued tiles that I'm hoping she'll let me use as trivets. She really loved this one, and has them slated as birthday party decorations.
*Eating macaroni and cheese. We order it twice a day. She just eats a couple of tablespoons, but her food interest is encouraging. We watch Food Network for most of the day, too. I really do think this child will eat someday! It was funny to me to hear her describe why she likes mac-n-cheese. "It's just so warm and feels good." That's why it's called comfort food, baby!
*Napping and cutie. She was totally into wearing her superstar outfit yesterday...and is wearing the skirt & legwarmers today, too, though with another tee :).
*Posing with some of the photos sent from her school on her transplant day. All of the kids wore their superstar tees or blue to support Audrey & Marian. They've been fantastic.
AND: we're heading out of here this afternoon. After some worry (a crowded weekend), we did get a room at the Ronald McDonald House, and once Nathan & Audrey are here, we'll move on out. I'm mostly nervous. Her counts are still bouncing, but everything else is good, so on we go! End of my laziness, though I will still have very little other responsibility while staying in Philly. Ay. But good.
I'll let y'all know when I have the exact address.
