Overcoming Fear

My mom came to visit on Friday and spent some time helping Amanda get over her fear of bugs. They found a little friend who was willing to help.
My mom started out by letting this dragon fly rest on her shirt, shoulder and hand before offering it to Amanda. It appeared to be half-dead so it didn't fly off and Amanda carried it around for a long time before putting it into a plastic storage box.Amanda still gets a little panicky when she hears a bee buzzing but at least we're making some progress.

And got some fun photos of it, too!

Fun, too, about Christiana crawling. Reuben's not there yet, but then again, she's got four days on him. We'll see what happens tomorrow. ;) (I'm not expecting much!)

That's gross, but way to go and help her face her fear!

Wow those are some great shots! She must be getting brave to hold that bug! I don't think I would be able to do that.

Thanks for stopping by the Healthy Moms!
