Pics and Updates

Ok. Its been a while since we updated and I have so much to post but thought I would share some pics and updates of our sweet happiness. She is doing well. She wears her new braces every night and has only taken them off once (mom put them on too lose). Slept really well last night and is just a smiling baby. She had another ear infection and last week was treated for strep which made her sound like she was wheezing. She is doing much better!!! This post is also to prove that I know how to put a bow in her hair (Hi Donna). She will be getting a hair trim (not a real short cut) soon so look for more pics.

last night at trivia, she colored for the first time. She did try to eat the crayon but she also colored which is very cool. I have tried doing signs with her and will continue to try and will show her the videos, but I am being pretty unsuccessful with it. Bonding and attachment is going well. I never thought I would be happy when my baby cried when someone else held her but she is doing that. Once she gets to know you, it is smiles and giggles..

I am back at work and Daddy is doing very well in the set up nursery downstairs since he cant take her up stairs with the crutches.

She eats very well. Loves green beans and corn and almost anything else..Still a carb girl and loves her bread. She is also drinks water and juice..

Last night she started making the llllllllll sound and was having a copy cat game. we would repeat her sounds and if we got it wrong, she said uh uh. Such a funny, happy baby. She squeals when she sees a kitty and still loves the swing when we get the chance to go to the park. This Sunday she will go to the nursery and then mom and dad will join for nursery duty. We will eventually get a referral for a hand surgeon just to make sure her hands are okay, but so far everyone is happy with her progress...
