As part of the Early Intervention program, Izzy is in a playgroup this winter with some other younger kids who are also not quite old enough for the more formal playgroup.  Since the first year of her life was so isolated because of her heart, it is nice that she can get some small group exposure to other kids.  She mostly watches the others for a while and then goes and does her own thing but every so often she will interact with another kid so that is nice to see!  Today, she even completed some fine motor skills her evaluator has been trying to get her to do for many months--she and I worked on them at home, too, but until today she really didn't do it in any deliberate manner and would only occasionally perform the skills more on accident than anything.  But today, she was a rockstar and did it with purpose and five different times :)  Go, Izzy!

Of course, a hard morning of playing and then eating bunches of lunch means a well-earned nap on the sofa :p
She made herself all comfy and no way am I moving a sleeping toddler ;)  The boys have these black bean bag chairs and they are perfect to slide up against the sofa when a kid falls asleep there--if they roll off, they hit the bean bag chair and don't get hurt.  I don't think I have to worry about her today, though--she has been in the exact same position for nearly two hours now.......
