She's adorable, as always, and it's nice to see Daddy getting some loving, but I have to ask - is she ready for sippies yet, or is the bottle because of the cleft?

Lovely, anyway. Thanks.

John asked about the bottle - good question. She is just about to turn two, and she does use sippy-cups, but the problem is finding the right kind of nozzle for her. Because her cleft was closed fairly recently, she is still in the process of learning to use all the muscles in her mouth properly, in particular the soft palate. One thing she will have to learn is how to create suction in her mouth. This means that she can't yet suck from a straw, valve, or ordinary nipple. We have to cut larger holes in the nozzles of her various bottles. She can drink from a cup (sometimes) but is still erratic, so when we're out at restaurants, we don't risk it ;)

lovepics, bellbottom is correct, I believe! Also known as flares, I think...though I'm not exactly up on my fashion terminology!

Is this a good spot? We've wondered about it.

Love reading Q's story below! So, so touching.

So, the Performances in the Park take place at the Anderson Park on 44th & Field. They are so great! Also, you two should do the Summer Reading Program though the library. We do the Jeffco libraries. Anyways, they give out tons of free (which I'm all about right now) coupons for different activities around town just for reading books throughout the summer. Lakeside, bowling, Heritage Square. It's great! Some ideas for our town...

Happy Day!

ModSquad, we LOVE this place. It's very inexpensive and the food is very good, the staff is friendly, the food arrives in what seems like seconds after you order, and the portions are enormous. My favorite is the spicy basil shrimp.

Hi! Could we know the name of the restaurant please! It's always helpful for folks living in CO to have some recommendations on where to eat in Denver.
