Maya's favorite things

Playing with the remote. We got her a colorful pretend one that makes many sounds  but she prefers the real thing

Eating S'mores flavored goldfish

Driving the car with her impatient passenger

At the doctor's visit last week, Naomi had to fill out an autism screen. Does she like to watch other children? Show affection? Try to communicate? Maintain eye contact? Yes, yes, yes, and yes.

I read recently of a screen for autism for babies less than 14 months. As they sit on their moms' laps, they can look at two videos in front of them. One screen shows geometric designs and patterns; the other show kid playing and dancing. The kids that prefer the geometric designs all end up autistic; the ones preferring to watch other kids mostly do not.

57 degrees yesterday! But the snow had piled up quite a bit so it took a while to melt. It will be above freezing until I leave for my cruise. Temps will be in the 80s in the Caribbean. This should take a huge chunk out of crappy winter.

Please blog from your cruise spots. I have been home three days and I am already longing to be on the move again...
