We have been working with her trying to help her sit up. Today Jim and I just helped balance and support her in a sitting up position for about 45 min while she played with toys and then later when she was sitting in my lap and Jim got up and walked out of view she actually sat up on her own in my lap for about 15 seconds. She then did it several more times when she really wanted to see something or watch her daddy or her sister. We were so proud of her. Although each time wasn’t for long it is definitely a huge start. Just a few days ago she couldn’t at all even attempt to try to sit up she’d just fall straight over. She is also starting to reach for us to pick her up. It is so neat to see and experience the little changes in such a brief time and the joy of how her life will forever be changed. We can’t wait to help her grow and learn and just see her come more and more to life like she should be. She is such a beautiful sweet girl. She absolutely loves kisses. The first time I kissed her lots on the cheek she just looked at me and then started to grin. She is like a baby when you kiss her where she tries to chase your kisses with an open mouth : )
So I think the reason she was given this awful hair cut is because she has several bald spots all over the back of her head. … prob from laying on her back and rubbing her head from side to side. As you all have seen her pic we had of her she had pretty long hair so that is what I was thinking it would look like… but I think they buzzed her hair just about all off before we got there so the bald spots in the back wouldn’t stand out. Can’t wait till her beautiful hair grows out. Wish I brought some little headbands to put bows on. It’s a little hard to keep bows in her hair with it so short.
Here’s a few pics of this afternoons visit.
Dinner with Rostik at a cafeteria type restaurant.
My flip flop broke when we were out walking to the store to buy some more water so while Jim ran back to the apartment to grab me some shoes Myla got to play here: she loved it!!
