It's the beginning of a new month (already!!) and so it's time to update/document Sadie's progress with her hand splints. Here are the previous pictures, so you can compare...

Check out that left hand!!! (July 8)
We've been working in the bathtub on getting her hands in her mouth and sucking on her fingers (in hopes that she'll learn to self-soothe when she's teething...although that last tooth finally came through, so I'm not sure there's much need left for that), but then she wants to bite...and she doesn't like that at all!! haha. When she sleeps, she lays on her side, and she can scrunch herself up into a little ball and she is actually able to get her hands in her mouth in that position. So, when she's awake in the night and upset, I've actually found her able to figure this out. However, I think we're done with teething (hallelujah!!), so there may not be much need for hands-in-mouth-to-suck. But, it's a start to hands-in-mouth-to-eat. Oh, and I also successfully had Sadie pick her own nose. Her finger fits so much better up in there, I wish she'd learn to take care of that on her own so I don't have to!!
