This little girlie is changing so fast! She is the size of a toddler and is on the brink of becoming one.
She scoots, rolls and shimmies around the floor looking for tasty morsels in the carpet. She gets up on her hands and knees and rocks back and forth willing herself to move. She has only figured out how to push herself backwards which leaves her quite often wedged under furniture.
This week I refreshed my "baby sign" memory and have begun teaching her signs. She is trying to communicate in various ways so teaching her something other than screeching is a good thing. We'll see what she picks up in the next few months. The only babbling sounds she really makes is "da-da"...which I think she has now connected to Daddy. Thats what Daddy is going with anyway. Daddy and Grandpa are her favorite guys. She spent 4 days with my parents while we were in Washington and she in now Grandma and Grandpas girl.
We've had Miss Cece for 8 months now. Crazy. It's been wonderful to see her grow, change and develop.
She now has 6 teeth and is working on more. She loves big people food (any food for that matter) so I guess it's a good thing she's getting chompers early. She is very interactive, affectionate, and content busying herself with discovering the world around her.
Each milestone she reaches or skill she develops we see as a small victory. It would be very naive to assume that there wasn't some sort of damage done prenatally but so far she is right on track cognitively and physically. We don't know much about what she was exposed to or how that will manifest itself in the future. Only when I start reading about it does it start to scare me a little. That fear is quickly replaced with peace though. God has a purpose for this little girl.
The truth is even our own healthy biological kids have their unique issues. No kid is without quirks and surprises.
His delusions of grandeur quickly crashed to the ice. As he crawled his way to the exit I thought that was it for Mr. Cautious. Once he decides against something there is no convincing him otherwise. He surprised us all by getting back up over and over again. He found his balance and loved it.
Miss Cece smiled ear to ear as she was pulled around on the ice. She is a little dare devil! (I may have another Roman on my hands).
Silas had a good time with his "icing stick". Shameful I know...
