Later we went to visit Tia Amanda. We watched a movie, Nacho Libre, that always makes us all laugh. We played, ate, picked tomatoes from her garden, the girls sang, and put on acrobatic shows. We had a nice time with Amanda. We were so happy to spend the day with her before she starts her school year and before Amaya starts first grade.
Tonight Amaya decided to take a bath, and Lidie asked to go in there with her. When Amaya takes a bath we have to put chlorine in the water so that its like she's in swimming pool water. After she's done playing then we give her a shower to wash her pins off with soap. The bath helped loosen the skin on her pin sites. She was able to lock her bar in with ease, but as soon as it was in her knee started hurting her, almost immediately. She moaned and whined a bit and asked me to rub her knee for her. I massaged her knee, pushed down on her knee cap, then massaged her foot. She asked if I could pull her foot up (like its pointed up). She said that felt good, then thanked me for the massages. She's sleeping soundly now, but we'll see what the night brings. She hasn't slept thru the night in over a week and I find myself quite tired during the day. Thanks again for being a part of our journey and reading along. Knowing that after almost five months you're still checking in on Amaya means a lot to me. Thank you.
Today Amaya taught Lidie how to blow a bubble today. They were both so excited.
The girls decided they needed a Bethany Hamilton Polly Pocket in addition to the barbie that they made, so they amputated this Polly pockets' arm. They don't understand why you can't buy an amputated doll or a doll with a prosthetic.
While they played acrobats at Tia Amanda's house Amaya did a somersault. I think it looked pretty cool so I decided to share it.
