So much to say, so little time! Gili started crawling this week! Like, more than two "crawls" at a time! It's hard to catch her on film, but I got her to crawl to the computer with my parents on Skype.
A couple months ago Gili's teacher sent home her box of formula because she is eating enough real food during the day. She still drinks a few bottles at home but her progress is incredible. My husband has been especially helpful. In the past he didn't think the mess was worth the experience, but in the past six months he's taken much more initiative in feeding her at least one or two real food meals a day. He makes no secret that she is his favorite person and #1 priority. Little Bro is still crazy about his dad, but we do sometimes get annoyed at getting only the leftover time and attention. Little Bro likes to be held ALL the time, so I haven't had so many opportunities to give Gili the masages I used to.
Gili was officially accepted to a new school, "Akim," for the next three years. It is smaller and doesn't have a pool, but it seems like a nice place. Not that we have much choice.
I think we got to the point where most of the time we go out people can tell Gili is different. I will eventually quit not posting pictures where she looks "retarded." Hey, a quarter of the pictures on facebook have "red-eye," why should both her eyes have to point the same direction?
We took a real family "tiyul" during Passover. We went to a local national park with a couple friends. Gili enjoyed the breeze and the picnic. My husband and I were exhausted. We took the little ones home and let Big Sis and Big Bro finish the tiyul with our friends. They are big enough to take a cab home at the end of the trail. We had to walk back to the bus stop to take the bus with the double stroller.
