SCOOTING, SITTING, AND CLAPPING
Playing ball with Daddy. I love how she anticipates, such great motor planning skills she has.
I also love how my photos will no longer contain my stretched out foot in the background just in case she falls!
Maddox is so excited she can sit up and see the rest of the world. She has not stopped smiling since she learned how to do this.
For us, clapping when asked means so many things. We now know that Maddox can hear, is actually listening to words, and can process language as well as understand what gestures go with language. In addition, shows her motor planning skills to demonstrate the gesture.
Yes, a simple clap has all these things. No wonder her mommy cried when Maddox brought both hands together while playing pat-a-cake. Another hard earned milestone bites the dust!
We would never have dreamt that our greatest Christmas gift of all would be a crawling baby.
Christmas is a few months away (even though Walmart doesn’t think so), I must remind myself to stay in the moment. It’s tough because I am such a planner. But, for now, we celebrate the fact that Maddox continues to thrive, understands language, and is sitting.
We also celebrate the fact that Sito is coming to visit this week!
Oh the plans that we have..... she will be so surprised.
