My Funny Girl

Right now Leah is at a stage where she is just too funny. The faces and sounds she makes crack us up! She loves to play peek-a-boo, she gets the biggest smile after she hides and comes up. It's such a joy to watch her grow and learn new things.
This week she learned to wave hi and bye. She waves to everything and everyone!

Also, I had mentioned in my previous post that Leah was transitioning from lying to sitting by herself. At the point when I blogged about it she had done it without help maybe three times. Three is enough for me--I know she can do it then. So, yesterday at OT, I told Lisa (OT) about it and the entire session I wanted Leah to show her. Of course, my funny girl would not show her, but today during PT she showed the therapist more then once! I was thrilled, I thought well this is it--typical Leah; she gets something, does it slowly then BAM she's doing it all the time. After therapy I put her in her crib for a nap and when she woke up I heard her playing around in the crib. I went in to check on her and there she was sitting up playing with her aqaurium on the side of her crib! I'm pretty sure I scared the daylights out of her, because I started screaming, jumping and cheering! I was so excited that she did it all by herself. It was a such a wonderful sight to see her sitting there--another milestone down!
