Rhianna received mountains of wonderful presents for her birthday.All carefully selected by these wonderful people, friends and family.Most of them asked beforehand about what would be suitable to give a 3 year old girl with CI.So, as much fun as these toys seem to be,they are super functional for therapy (and mum can stop cracking her head looking for new therapy ideas!)
Just received this one - Strawberry shortcake's berry cafe.Oh, and she got to choose it herself too(approved by mum of course).Thank you Shera!
She got a magnetic writing board where she tirelessly practices writing the alphabets,numbers and finally drawing a face! The things sticking out on the sides are ears (well, that's what she told me!)
Of course we had to make many many thank you cards.Thank you all! We love the presents!!

On September 15th 2009 Rhianna's left CI was activated and her journey into the hearing world began..We hope to document her progress and share our wonderful journey with this delightful girl.We also hope to provide other parents with similar situation in our country with some information on living with CI.
Rhianna is turning 5 years old on May 13th 2012 She stands at 105cm and weighs 18kg (still!).
She loves doughnuts,ice cream and birthdays but she hates vegetables (yucks!) She loves princess, dolls and pretend play but she hates to tidy up
She loves singing and dancing but she hates nap time and bed time She loves her two kitties but she hates it when they're noisy She loves to chat and listen but she hates mapping sessions ( getting better tho)
she's lovely but cheeky,pretty sometimes grumpy,she's loving and kind but could be bossy...that's who she is :)
