Yesterday's pic :-)

Here she is yesterday morning having her breakfast.
(basmati rice with butter and brown sugar)

Fish again.

This time it's snapper.

So, here's Mom drinking her Boost and eating snapper and rice.

I wanted to show off Stephan's village in the wardrobe beyond Mom.

It's all lit up, but you can't see the lights with the flash.
So, here is the room without the flash.  (It isn't this dark in real life.)

sorry I've been off a couple days :-)

I've been distracted for a couple days, but here's a couple pics.  First today's:

Me:  "Can you give me a smile?"
Mom:  "I can as soon as I get a hold of this thing" 
(That is the washcloth to get the banana bits out
from underneath her fingernails :-)  )

And then, yesterday/weekend's pic.  (I went to Ikea and I got a little bed table for her. We need to shorten it some for it to work, but she likes it - even the way it is.  I took this picture earlier this morning so I could give y'all an idea about the bed table.)

Maybe . . .

Me:  "Can you give me a big smile?"
Mom: "Maybe," but she didn't.
Too bad I didn't have the camera out 
a few minutes ago.  She was laughing out loud
 at "The Hare and the Tortoise"
on Reading Rainbow.

Look at that SMILE!

She's eating Greek yogurt mixed with applesauce.
Must taste pretty good.  :-)

sleepy morning

It's time for strawberry kefir mixed with milk. 
She's so cute and sleepy, isn't she?

call from Aunt Dot

Mommy just got a call from her sister.

Talking to her sister made her eyes shine.

useful Alzheimer's test

My mother-in-law posted this to her Facebook wall,
and I thought it might be useful for those of us who
fear Alzheimer's. (I appreciated it, anyway.)

Fun with spills

She spilled her yogurt this morning, but after I took away the 
place mat and wiped the sheet up (mostly), she still wanted
 to keep her almost empty bowl. Then, I went in and she
 was using her spoon to scrape the yogurt off the flowers
 very industriously. It is good morning.

for Pete

I said: "Give me a big smile."
And she said: "What for?"
And I said: "For Pete."
So, this one's a "for Pete" smile.  
Isn't it pretty?

Amanda is victorious!

Amanda was sitting with Mom this evening, and I told her that there was some chocolate pudding (that is vanilla Greek yogurt and cocoa mixed) for mom to eat, but that she hadn't finished it today.  Usually mom really loves and eats this treat.  So, Amanda sent these photos a few minutes into her watch.  Apparently, Mommy will eat pudding for Amanda even when she doesn't eat it for me.

Oatmeal for dinner :-)

Mom slept ALL DAY long.  Every time I wash her hair she seems to sleep all day.  (Maybe the head massage is what brings that on?)  So, she's having the oatmeal that I prepared for her breakfast for her dinner.

busy busy

She's got all kinds of things in easy reach today.  She's looking at her magazine.  She's got her oatmeal bowl (mostly finished, but she's not ready for me to take to the kitchen yet), and she's got her pretty place mat.  She loves to look at the patterns on it.  She's got her head pillow in case she needs it, and the TV is playing a documentary on caves of the world.  She's having a good day.

A pic or two or three

Mom:  "What are you doing?"
Me: "I'm just taking your picture.   You look kind of mad."
Mom:  "I'm not mad.  I just don't know what it's going to look like."
Me:  "You look beautiful.  Give me a big smile."
Mom:  "I don't know if I can."
Me:  "You just did, and you're beautiful."

(And, to clarify, in case any of you had any doubts: This is a word for word transcription of what she said and my replies.  :-)  )
