New Skills

Callie has been a busy little bee this month and now has a couple of new skills!  The first is using her index finger to poke.  I have to admit I did not even realize this was a milestone with Owen.  There is so much that he did that I took for granted.  Things are different with Callie and we celebrate every single tiny little accomplishment.  I learned from her OT therapist that using her index finger to poke and point is indeed a milestone and it is typically met between 9 and 12 months.  In the last week or so (at 20 months) Callie has discovered her little pointer finger and absolutely loves using it.  Especially with her little pop up toy. 

Her second new skill is getting from her tummy or back to a sitting position!  This is a pretty big one for her.  She has been able to sit for a while now, but has not been able to get to this position from laying down.  All of a sudden in the last week she has figured this out and is quite pleased with herself when she makes it up.  Today I entered her room after she woke from her nap to find her sitting up in her crib!  When she saw me she tried to pull herself up on the side!  So we are finally dropping her crib down from the newborn level after all of this time.  This milestone has been especially exciting and encouraging.  

Our little girl continues to amaze us and we are so thankful for everything little thing she accomplishes.

I love the new videos and pictures. She's looks like she's grown so much even in this last month! Those legs are looking much more like toddler legs and a lot less like baby legs...I think she's getting ready to be on the move.
