Maddie Rae Gotcha Day

Friday, May 23, 2008

Cheers, Mate!

Jonah had his "Pirate Day" at school yesterday. He was so excited and had so much fun hunting for buried treasure, making a treasure map, and dressing up.
We had a significant milestone today...Maddie Rae drank out of a sippy cup with a spill proof valve. Which means (drumroll, please)...she can suck!!! Before her surgery, she had to just chew on the bottle to make the liquid come out. Because of her cleft palate, she couldn't create a vacuum with her mouth in order to suck. Now she can. Yay!!!
Showing off her new cup.

Jon's buying a new camera lense tonight with our money we got from Dragonair for almost dying in a blaze of glory on our flight back from Beijing. Non-blurry pictures coming soon!

That is very exciting for Maddie Rae. Now she can be a big girl and ditch the bottles!!! Jonah looks very convincing in his pirate costume! Wouldn't want to meet him on the high seas!! ;)
