This weekend I really felt so special and so wonderful to be the mother of a beautiful little girl. I didn't do anything special, but Graycen sure did lots of special things.
We have this new cup that is a Nuby Cup with a straw - we gave it to her at the start of the week and by yesterday, she had it mastered!
For about 1 month now, Graycen has been waving and every time she does we say "hi graycie" or "bye-bye." Well, today, I said "bye-bye" when I left the room and I waved to her - I was shocked to see, she waved back!!! It was so beautiful! I wanted to cry.
I was also surprised to see when I was sitting there and she turned to me, put her arms on my leg and pulled herself to me. What a strong little girl!
Also - Graycen is really trying to get this crawling thing down. Today, she pulled herself from crawling position all the way back to a sitting position with no help. She walked her little arms backwards, pushed one leg out to the side and pulled the other one in. Next thing I know, she is sitting and I didn't help her once!
She is getting so big and developing so fast. It's wonderful to watch. I find it so amazing how babies learn so many things that we cannot teach them. They really are little geniuses.
