Blowing Kisses!

Leah amazes me more and more everyday!

I have been working with her on blowing kisses lately and she just couldn't get the hang of it. I was always bringing her right hand up to her mouth and she would start chewing on her fingers. So, today at therapy Lisa (ot) was playing with Leah and I was sitting on the floor facing them. Lisa was holding back Leah's right hand and she said to Leah "Can you blow Mommy a kiss" and showed her once with lefty what to do. What happened next was the most amazing, awesomest (is that even a word?) thing ever, Leah started blowing kisses with lefty!!! She brought lefty to her mouth, made a kissing noise and then threw the kiss!!!!!! I looked at Lisa, with tears in my eyes, and told her that this was the first time she has ever blown a kiss!!! She doesn't even do it with righty! I was one proud Mama!!!

The picture above is from Sunday. We went to take Leah's picture at JcPenney. She is normally very happy and smiley, but not that day! She would not crack a smile for anything!! We will have to try again soon!
