The speech therapist came today to work with Mei. She gave me lots of good ideas on how to help Mei with her speech. It makes me feel good to know *how* to help her. But I am realizing more and more how much of myself and my life I have to devote exclusively to my daughter.
Eye contact is getting better...finally. But she still resists it fairly frequently. I've been wearing her, skin to skin, every morning for as long as my back can take it. That reminds me, I need to order a new baby carrier. Anyway, this morning I had her just in her diaper and me in a sports bra and I put her in the carrier. I played classical music and swayed with her and massaged her legs. She gets very calm when I am wearing her, and afterwards I feel so close to her. I think she feels the same, but you never really know.
