Sweet Pea has finally decided that it is worth the energy to find mommy instead of just sitting in the other room and fussing! Yippee!!!! I know we will regret being so excited about this some day, but for today, it is a very good thing! Saturday morning she followed my voice (with me peeking around the corner at her to give her extra motivation) from the living room into the far end of the kitchen. She then repeated it a couple of hours later and I attempted to capture it on video. I apologize up front for the extremely unsteady camera work. I was trying to crawl backwards myself.
Her other big news that I don't have any pictures of is that she is pulling to stand a lot now and even did it in the tub today all by herself. She is still very stiff legged when she is standing and leans on anything and everything that she can, but she is wanting to put weight on her legs! Another yippee! She often pulls up using my arms as her brace, but she is starting to try standing on more and more things. She won't do ANY of this for her PT, but as long as she does it for us I am alright. I think the PT is starting to take it personally though.
Our local Down syndrome group had a play date at the beach today. It was a lot of fun and Sweet Pea enjoyed playing in the sand. I only took a couple pictures, but here they are along with a few other photos that we have taken recently.

My Aunt was in town and this is the only photo I took the entire time of the two of them!!! I don't know how that happened, but I know that Sweet Pea loves her and vice versa:

Do you like my huge hat?
