September 2005 -- I

Ursula, Jayden, and Astrid swinging in the park. Mrs. Abeli is good at pushing!

Astrid loves this swing, though her mommy would like it more if it had a seatbelt!

Astrid knows that the best way to visit her friends in the PICU and to get a very fancy hat is to stop breathing a few times. Ursula made sure that Hospital Monkey went along with Astrid.

Here we are, off to the park again!

This swing is better because it has a belt, and because it is near the bell toy that Astrid loves to hear.

Ursula and Astrid watch a movie together. You might think that Ursula is being friendly to hold Astrid's hand, but really this is self-preservation. Otherwise Astrid will pull her hair.
