Well the good news is Mendele is pretty much all better from his Bronchialitis, B"H.
The rest of the news will be in pictures:
Next time you hold a baby you'll notice that they always seem to be looking right above your head, the reason is that new born babies can in fact see the Shechina that hovers above our heads...
And yes, they really do smell like Gan Eden!
Before we get to the therapy, which may be sad to look at I would just like you all to know that despite it all, Mendele is a happy child...
(that is a smile) and that he loves his mommy for all the hard work she does to help him.
Now on to the therapies:
To help him keep his tongue inside his mouth mommy does this. Mendele bites her finger and exercises his jaw so it won't hang open.
Another way of strengthening Mendele's jaw is to run under his chin... We are not sure how this helps but the therapist said it helps so we do it.
Mendele is surrounded by colorful pictures and toys - these help him learn to focus on stuff and respond to his surroundings.
He stretches his arms and legs. He is getting stronger as he tries to hold his arms in one place while his mommy tugs gently.
Sometimes the toys and the noise are just a little too much. At such times Mendele will inevitably end up...
...on Tatty's shoulder.
Yes, it is still winter and yes, Mendele does get tired after all of this exercise.
