Baby in a Basket

The developmental specialist assigned us to put the baby in the laundry basket with the boppy twice a day for ten minutes, to help her learn to sit.

That’s not the basket she meant, but it made me laugh until I cried!

She thought it was so funny!

I could not stop laughing!

We did fix her in the correct basket, of course:

But between the first basket, and her pulling out her ponytail during her nap, I laughed harder than I have laughed in ages.

What a rush of happiness, after a scary night with a purple baby and home health nursing. We talked to the pulmonologist twice, the cardiologist once, and had the ambulance on alert. She pulled through, surprising everyone once again, but we are back on oxygen.

But we are happy!

The show is still on for tonight, for those who already made reservations!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
