We've got a baby possum that is living in our ensuite window sill. It is really freaky to be brushing your teeth, and this little possum is staring at you - half looking terrified and half looking friendly. I am generally scared of wild animals, so I am always assessing if the little thing is going to claw its way into the bathroom, and start scratching me all over. It is probably wondering the same thing. So we have this I am scared of you, and you are scared of me thing going on. I wonder if it will be there tomorrow morning.
Sheena had a physiotherapy appointment today. She worked very hard for an hour, then had a drink and a 2 hour nap. Poor bubba, its like doing a triathlon for a 11 month old. Her physio is keen for Sheena have lots of over-the-top activities to get her going. I will give it a go, but I think Sheena is moving ahead leaps and bounds all by herself at the moment anyway. Sheena has to do so many exercises: kneeling, squating, rolling over a cylinder thing - it is really intense. It is actually very hard for me to support her while she is doing it, so my abs get a work out at the same time. She is over 9kg now, so she is heavy to hold while trying to make her use her own muscles to move or bear weight. Our project of the week is to get Sheena's lower abs stronger, so we'll keep this in mind whenever we carry her or position her.
