Crafty cranials

I'm feeling a wee bit crafty...

We had our appointment with the pediatric cranial sacral therapist at 7 PM. In what is beginning to seem like a trend with this kid, there's no one simple easy answer (or easy fix) to our issues, but the therapist began treatment for my daughter's mild torticollis and general neck tension and lack of sacral movement. She anticipates 3-5 sessions will fix all that - with Hashem's help! Whether or not that will solve all our nursing issues, she was not sure, but gosh, it can't hurt.

For the last couple of days I've watched to see if Sarah Rochel ever turns her head to the right. She did, exactly once, when I moved her head for her!

So we came home, and she was up and playing (she had bawled at the therapist's, but then had eaten) and I thought to myself, "Self? Perhaps we shall be crafty." So rather than her usual 11 PM bathtime, I plopped her in the tub at 9, when her abba was off learning. We were out of the tub by 9:35, settled down for a nice big meal, and by 10:04 PM the tochter was in her crib - sleeping!! And get this - she was sleeping with her head turned to the right side.

Okay, fine, five minutes later she gave a little squawk and when Yoav went to check on her, she was fast asleep with her head firmly to the left side, but hey, not bad, right?

So this is the experiment - we'll see how things go. In the meantime, here's a picture of the girl waving hello to you... or maybe she was waving at us to stop taking pictures... or maybe her hand was on its way to her nostril.

(ps - she woke up and ate again at 11, but so far, it's quiet...)

I love this pic. It totally looks like she's waving at the camera. She's a natural. Sign this girl up. She could be the next model for Zol Poh. What do you think? Hey Mir. Tomorrow we're going for the American passport. We're really nervous. How much does it cost again? Thanks!

It cost... too much. But I don't remember how much. You can check here:

Just remember, you need either a credit card which works outside of Israel or cash, you can't use a check. Good luck!!
